Required Reading: Republicans and Blacks – Thomas Sowell – Page 1


Republicans and Blacks – Thomas Sowell – Page 1.

If you don’t know these things that the great Thomas Sowell has written here, then you don’t understand why the Democrats, who have owned the black vote for something like 60 years now, have delivered no real assistance to that beleaguered people. They haven’t had to. Worse, the “assistance” and the “solutions” the Democrats have proposed and won have left a swath of destruction, death, poverty, violence, bitterness and despair wherever they have been implemented.

Republicans — the only party to treat black people like real people, the party that ended slavery, segregation, Jim Crow and other evils — haven’t told blacks precisely why the GOP really has earned their votes over the decades.

You owe it to yourself to read the above-linked essay.

  1. I agree. You can summarize it very easily: The GOP has focused on removing obstacles in the path of black people and other minorities; the Dems have focused on giving them “free stuff.”

    Republicans have to make the case that the removal of obstacles is vastly more important than giveaways.
