I am completely perplexed by the Black Community’s support of illegal aliens. I’ve been to countless City Council meetings and Sheriff’s Commission meetings where many Blacks speak in support of illegal aliens. All the evidence shows illegal aliens hurt the Black community the most. They take jobs and drive down wages. Just this week a Latino gang member was convicted of fire bombing Black homes to force Blacks out of their neighborhoods.
I believe they support illegal immigration because the Democrat Party does. The Party has convinced them Republican’s objection to illegal immigration is another example of their racism. It breaks my heart that the Black community is so devoted to the Democrat party. The party of Slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, opposition to voting rights and civil rights for Blacks. For some reason they forgive the Democrat party for all that came before because they’ve been told Democrats and Republicans switched sides after the Civil Rights battle. Seriously? The party FOUNDED to end slavery, that fought a hundred years to guarantee the rights of Blacks, that had 8 Black Republican Senators and a Black Republican Speaker of the House (when has that happened under Democrats), became racists overnight? And the party that owned slaves, burned crosses on their lawns, hung them, stood in front of schools to prevent them from entering, used fire hoses on them, blew up their churches…overnight became their champions? And they believe that? Today Blacks can’t forgive America for the slavery that ended more than 150 years ago, but they forgive the party of slavery? How does that work?
And now the Democrat party supports open borders and unlimited illegal immigration, so Blacks do, too. They ignore that illegal immigration has hurt them more than any other group. They take jobs, lower wages, push Blacks out of their schools and neighborhoods. Blacks once were the second largest portion of the population, now they are the third. Black members of Congress now represent the “rights” of illegal aliens over the “rights” of Black citizens. Democrats say they look forward to America no longer being a White Majority country. What evidence do Blacks have that when Latinos are the majority and in leadership they will protect Blacks rights more than White’s have?
For the most part, Blacks are very religious people. I’ve worked with various Black organizations and even traveled across the country with 80 Black anti-Amnesty activists (I was the only White person on the trip) and they begin and end their meetings with prayer. I admire that. But how do they reconcile that with the Democrat’s position on abortion up to and including the moment of birth? Infanticide? The Left’s Sex Education policies. Pornographic books on school reading lists? Teaching the LBGT lifestyle is normal? That there are more than a hundred genders? Transitioning kindergartners to a different gender? How do you read the gospel on Sunday and vote for candidates that support policies that remove their religious beliefs and rights the following Tuesday?
Blacks know Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood to limit the growth of the Black population, yet they support Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood Clinics are located in Black Communities. The Black population would be double what it is today and still be the second largest segment of the population if not for Planned Parenthood and Democrat policies. When more Black babies are aborted than born, Margaret Sanger’s legacy continues.
I know many Black Conservatives but they are in the minority and face scorn and ridicule from their community. Most Blacks voted for Hillary Clinton who received the Margaret Sanger Award. She said she admired Sanger enormously. How do you vote for a woman who admired someone whose goal in life was to eliminate your race?
Under Democrats Blacks have had high unemployment, large numbers on welfare, fatherless homes, low home ownership, etc. Right now, Black unemployment is lower than ever before. Fewer regulations have made Black businesses thrive, and religious liberties are being protected. How is it possible to ignore this and vote Democrat?

After what happened to the Jews in Nazi Germany after Hitler had all the firearms confiscated, one also wonders why Jews as a whole are so anti Second Amendment.
I feel confident that if the 100,000+ American citizens of Japanese descent had all been armed with rifles, the rabid folk of the West Coast would have been a lot more moderate in their views during WWII. Yyet as a group, they too are anti Second Amendment. It baffles me.
