Do You Want To Know What Blacks Really Think?

09/21/2019

 

Candace Owens, a young Black activist, testified at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Hate Crimes and White Nationalism.  What she said will, no doubt, jolt some people’s sensibilities. Then again, though, most people are not sensible. 

The problem is that politicians pander to the Black vote, but they do not want to really deal with the serious issues that are confronting Black people in America.  The problem is that, as a nation, we have done little to alleviate the plight of the Black communities, problems like crime, drugs, violence and deteriorating neighborhoods.  That’s why, today, cities like Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore, just to name a few, have become cesspools and there is very little being done to correct the problem.

Yes, racism is something that Blacks have to deal with in their daily lives. Yet, they are far more concerned with their ability to provide for their families. So, things like jobs, safe neighborhoods and education rank high on the list of what they want.

Blacks are tired of being taken for granted (politically). So, for many, Candace Owens has become the face of Black discontentment. The opinions she expresses are her own but are shared by many people in the Black community.  Here’s how she testified at the hearing:

“You know that white supremacy and white nationalism rank no where near the top of the issues that is facing Black America… It is an attempt to make the election all about race…The things that are actually harming Black America – #1 father absence #2 the education system and the illiteracy rate… White supremacy and white nationalism, if I had to make a list again of 100 things, would not be on it. This hearing, in my opinion, is a farce.  And it’s ironic that you’re sitting here and having three Caucasian people testify and tell you what their expertise is. You want to know what my expertise are – Black and American.”

It was your hearing Jerry. Did any of that sink in with you?
