With few exceptions, a rich black person has more in common politically with a rich white person than black people in general, and vice versa.
There are issues and interests that transcend the superficial aspect of race, and the rigid identities that box people into a particular ideology. Today, the left does this to the extreme, with race-based politics.
Nazism boxed in German whites the same way liberals box in African-Americans. That is to say, both Nazis and liberals tell people that, if you’re not part of our movement, you’re not a “real” member of the race you happen to be. You’re somehow the enemy’s supporter.
This, of course, isn’t true. In the marketplace of ideas, there are black conservatives in the same way there are black socialists and black communists, and so on. Too many on the left insist that their ideas are the cornerstone of an entire race’s ideas, when that’s not the truth.
How do I know this? Look at the statistics.
Democrats heavily support abortion rights and gun restriction. African-Americans, on average, though, heavily support restrictions on abortion and tend to not support anti-gun restrictions.
In addition, although the Democrats want you to believe that Hispanics universally support them, in the recent election, 30 per cent of the Hispanic vote went to Trump.
In Canada, the Ontario government controlled by the Liberals would have you believe that the new sex ed curriculum (that would introduce concepts like gender fluidity to children) is supported by minority communities. Nope. Go to anti-sex ed marches and see. The majority of people in the anti-sex ed marches are non-white.
As you can see, I’m about as black as a paved road. The left in the western world would look at me and say, “Because you’re black, you should think (x) and (y). If you don’t think (x) or (y), you’re a house nigger or a coon.”
In reality, it’s true that some legislation, particularly in the past, disportionately affected me. However, more so than a black person, I am an individual. You are an individual. And our social, economic, and political opinions should not be hinged on or dependant merely on our race, like the left would have you believe.
So why does the left continue to do this? WATCH this video for my answer.
