What point did everyone either miss or completely gloss over when, essentially, Kanye West, Candace Owens and Chance the Rapper all said some variation of, “Black people should be permitted to think for themselves?”
Easy: Currently black people are not permitted to think for themselves.
The fact that year in and year out, black Americans vote at a rate of 90-95% for Democrats, would seem to bear out the conclusion that they don’t.
It’s a massively important point.
To say that “black people ought to be permitted to think for themselves” is to state what is so obvious that the only possible response should be: “Duh!”
Instead, though, this blindingly obvious statement of the simplest of truths met with… scorn, derision, outrage, apoplectic, vein-popping, horrified white-hot anger.
One would think that with the talismanic power that the word “slavery” holds in the vast American Race Grievance Industry (RGI), black Americans would recoil in horror at what the response to Kanye, et al revealed.
In general, they didn’t.
The meaning of that shouldn’t be lost either. The Race Grievance Industry, the Democrats, the media, pop culture, Hollywood — the entire rotting edifice that is the American Left — are all stating unambiguously: “Black people should not be permitted to think for themselves.”
There’s a slavery of the mind also, and the American Left has long engaged in it. For everyone’s sake, we on the Right should make them cut it out. We should call them on it, expose it, trumpet it loud and clear, shame them for it, and make them cut it out. Our black brothers and sisters deserve — are owed — nothing less.
And black Americans should reject the Left, and their desire to keep them in intellectual chains.
