This post is our official first post and it may raise some controversy, but I am telling the truth as a black male in my 50's.
I saw as a young child in Florida how stable black communities were lured into poverty by white communist, welfare hustlers, leading to the abandonment of strong black family values.
Simply said, blacks were tricked into trading their modest, simple lifestyles for Democrat false and broken promises. And the Democrat lies still exist in 2020.
I can say this because my mother was on welfare and we were one of the few homes on my block on food stamps in a 100% black community. Mom was a heroin addict, a prostitute and had serve two sentences in prison.
Am I grateful to have had received a foot-long block of cheddar cheese and two-pound cans of oily peanut butter, and be one of the few kids in my neighborhood to present food stamps to the local black-owned corner store?
Even with the ridicule from my friends with two-parent households, you bet I was grateful! I made many, many cheese toast sandwiches with Sunbeam white bread. I also had sugar sandwiches and air sandwiches (two pieces of bread smashed together with no meat inside).
I had to share that piece of my 'Memory Lane' with readers to let everyone know that I did not grow up as a rich kid. Far from it. Let me also mention that my father was a notorious heroin dealer. I saw him about five times in person, up to the age of 18, but read about him in the local newspaper often.
Democrats, after blacks received the right to vote, by approval of mostly Republicans, had to design a political strategy to attract black voters. Historically, Democrats have never like black people because the Emancipation Proclamation, signed by another Republican, President Abraham Lincoln, messed up Democrat's financial gravy train to retain ownership of cheap, black labor.
Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th President, a Texas Democrat (after scrolling to the second page on Google to verify he was a Democrat), was the author of the "Great Society", legislation with many social reforms and programs targeted to black people. President Johnson stated he wanted to eliminate racial injustice and poverty using the "Great Society".
So here we go. This is where the mindsex began to lure blacks into voting for Democrats.
President Johnson is also linked to the phrase: "I will have these niggers voting Democrat for 200 years". Of course snopes(dot)com claims Johnson did not say these words. But an author has written that Johnson did make this statement. And here is why I believe Johnson made this statement. And I will start digging into the black lives matter topic after I build this case where blacks were snookered into voting for Democrats without giving their decisions much thought.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed into law on July 2, 1964...again with more Republicans voting yes than Democrats. Including new laws against discrimination, race, color, religion, and sex was the right for blacks to finally begin to vote.
Laws to permit blacks to vote scared the hell out of Democrats because blacks, up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, had conservative values.
Before the Civil Rights Act, most blacks owned homes. Very few blacks rented. Most of my black friends had two-parent households. And in my community, there were predominantly black K-12 schools. I was in the sixth grade when I first attended a racially integrated school.
So, Johnson and the Democrats were afraid that conservative minded blacks would vote for Republican candidates because blacks' family values were more aligned with the Republican Party. Those values included attending church, wanting children to do well in school, home ownership, marriage and, to a lesser extent in the 1960's and 1970's, business ownership.
Johnson introduced what is known today as the welfare system where women living in poverty would receive money and food as long as there were no men living in homes with the women.
This welfare policy resulted in the planned destruction of the black family unit. Now, I'm not saying black people were blameless in this article. It was not all the Democrats' fault that black households fell apart in the 1970s and the 1980s.
If a man and woman bring a child into the world and the two people are unmarried and not committed to one another, this will be problem. This is a problem for all races but mostly for black people because we do not have much wealth in older black generations. The child and the mother will need assistance, especially in the first three years, where there is no grandparent to take care of the child while the mom works or attends college. It was a problem in the 1970's and it's a probably in 2020.
This is what I experienced as a toddler and a young teen. My grandparents raised me until they both died in back to back years. Mom got out of prison and decided she wanted to be a mom when I was 11 years old. Unfortunately, she was heavily addicted to heroin and cocaine and eventually died of AIDS when I was 16 years old.
So fast forward 20 - 30 years. Blacks have made great strides in education, arts and entertainment, science, and professional sports. Blacks even reached the pinnacle by having a black president, Barack Obama. Today, blacks have a foothold in every industry.
But something happened to the Democrat Party.
Technology advances begin to downsize unions which were key Democrat voting blocks. Democrats lost voting majorities in the car and manufacturing industries in Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Milwaukee and other major Midwest cities.
Next, Democrats saw the LGBT and illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America as new voting blocks. They pumped the LGBT and Hispanics for all the votes they could get out of them. But these votes were not enough to bring back Democrats into political prominence.
Then, something horrible happened to Democrats in 2016. Donald Trump became the 45th President.
Trump started talking about Making America Great Again by bringing back jobs lost by Americans in the Midwest from NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) legislation passed by Bill Clinton. And taking jobs back from China. And reducing the trade imbalance with China.
And Republicans are at fault, too. A number of Republicans, as we are seeing now, sold their souls and American wealth for Chinese money for years. I can understand how Democrat DNA can drive behavior to betray America, but it is astonishing to read the names of Republicans who have traded Americans' Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for Chinese financial enrichment.
Democrats, going back to the well, had to find a way to get black voters back on the plantation. This time Democrats with Chinese money created the black lives matter movement. Of course, blm has nothing to do with black lives as the number of black-on-black crime remains high every year.
Black lives matter is a repeat function of what President Johnson did in the 1960's and 1970's. The logic is to tell black people that they are "less-than", "worthless", and "every white person is racist". It's the same old shit repackaged for the 21st century.
Now in 2020, the Democrat playbook has a communist twist to it. Black lives matter not only wants to keep blacks on the virtual slave plantation, but black lives matter, funded by Chinese money, wants to destroy the American economy. This is epic and, unfortunately, working blacks who are doing well in their jobs, careers, in sports and in entertainment FAIL to see that communism will destroy black livelihoods along with white livelihoods.
Communism does not discriminate. Communism is controlled by people who no longer need black, LGTB, school teacher, public employee, illegal alien, and climate change votes. If communism ever takes hold in America, the groups I just mentioned will be for a rude awakening. Even retiree pensions are at-risk for failure under communism.
