The Worst Kind of Democrat is a Black Democrat
It’s sad that 99% of black people are democrats but for no real reason. They get caught up in the retoric and believe they are entitled to be propped up by the government to make up the achievement gap instead of getting there through personal responsibility. Not only do Democrats reinforce the entitlement and try to mandate it through the government, but they continue to depress black people by assuming that our worst enemy isn’t ourselves, but some pale skinned boogeyman with a Republican party membership.
The worst kind of democrat is a black democrat because he not only misleads Americans into complacency and underachieving, he gives black people a sense of entitlement of “I don’t have to work hard and make good choices to get what I need in life. I have a black ____ in office to make the government give it to me.”
Even worse is the fact that not all black people are underachievers, but you have the people like Oprah who have been exceptional people, but want black people to feel entitled. We fail at having personal responsibility for our futures and our actions for the most part. Me personally, I know I’m on the right path and I might fail, and I’ll be happy with that. I’ll take advantage of any opportunity I find but if I don’t get where I need to be in life it’s not because the government is evil and republicans hate black people. It’s because I failed as a human being.
As for health care. I haven’t had any insurance for years and it’s my fault for settling for what black people advised me were “good jobs that pay good money” instead of going after a real good job. I’m almost there now but if I die before I get insurance it’s my fault. I just have to take care and be responsible with my money and plan for emergencies. I had the misfortune of graduating college at a time when the economy is bad, but I’m not scared because of the circumstances. I just have to survive until the next boom and then get as much as I can and live at the right level so that when the next crunch happens I have money to spend to survive and prosper until the next boom.
If only our politicians would be more responsible to us as black people, we would not continue to fail ourselves while blaming others for our faults.
