What is wrong with black people starting our own party? I feel, we can do a lot better. But, it's just my opinion.  :tiptoe:


Just a way to split the vote to elect republicans.  GTFOH

The same question can be asked why are the most White Supremacists are Republican???

I SWEAR THAT IS PRECISELY THE SAME QUESTION THAT IMMEDIATELY CAME TO MY MIND WHEN I READ THIS QUESTION. :popcorn:

ANY AFRICAN-AMERICAN THAT EVEN HAS TO ASK THAT QUESTION CLEARLY HAS NO INKLING OF AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION OVER THE LAST 100 YEARS.

When the white raciest moved into the Republican party, blacks moved out.  Make sense, right?
As sad as it is ^^^This^^^

Reps won’t admit it, and Dems won’t say it...but everyone knows it’s true.

I got no special love for Dems and feel they take our votes for granted. That said, the Reps are blatant about how they feel about people that look like me.

Respectfully, I often hear the complaint that the Democrats take our votes for granted. However, when I ask what is it the Democrats should be doing for Black people, I get a response that is vague, lacking specificity or a specific response that is far fetched or legislatively unrealistic.

Additionally, it's hard for me to say that Democrats take Black votes for granted when the party nominated and elected the First Black President.

Furthermore, there is a Congressional Black Caucus. If Black folk had a universal desire for specific piece of legislation, Black folk should communicate it to our representatives in the Congressional Black Caucus.

Finally, I don't think there is any universal agreement among Black people as to what  legislation they want enacted in exchange for their vote.

Please elaborate. Explain how we would do better by having our own party.  :shrug:

You need to show me some evidence of what the Democratic party has done for black people?  :shrug:

Hell, I want to see what they have done for black people on the economic side of things, too.

I REALLY NEED TO SHOW YOU NOT A SINGLE THING. I WILL NEVER ENGAGE IN ANY POLITICAL DISCOURSE WITH SOMEONE WITH SUCH AN OBVIOUS LIMITED FRAME OF REFERENCE.  DO YOU NOW ANYTHING OF HISTORY AND WHICH MAJOR PARTY HAS DONE WHAT FOR BLACK PEOPLE OVER THE LAST 100 YEARS?  I AM NOT A HISTORY TEACHER NOR WILL I DO YOUR RESEARCH FOR YOU.  ...AND YES.  I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

What is the point of having Democrats in the house. If the all the Republicans are business owners? See, until, we start owning some things like Tyler Perry. We are nothing more than a silent voice.

true..

Black people are not a monolith.

Some of us want economic items, others educational. Within just those two are wide ranging areas of need.

Your response is a non-sequituror or is non-responsive to my inquiry.   I ask you to explain why how we would do better by having our own party.You responded by asking by saying I need to show show evidence of what Democrats have done for Black people. :shrug: That is not an answer to my inquiiry.

However, I will respond to your question.The 1964 Civil Rights Act. Democrats support affirmative action, more specifically, consideration of race in college admissions and government contracts. The overwhelming majority Black members of Congress are Democrats. This is because democrats supported drawing districts which would allow the election of Black Congressional members. Because of affirmative action, there are more Black professionals like doctors, lawyers and engineers. The Democratic Party nominated the First Black President. The Democrats consistently support the idea that racial diversity is needed at all levels of government.

IF HE KNEW SOME HISTORY HE WOULD APPRECIATE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THAT STATEMENT. BUT HE DOESN'T. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF HISTORY DOESN'T GO BACK TO THE 1964 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, WHEN BLACKS FIRST LEFT THE GOP IN DROVES, NEVER TO RETURN.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
