America’s civil rights leaders have a problem. They can’t solve it because success is not an option. If they ever get what they want they will become relics, a part of history. That means no notoriety, no claim to political office, no fame, and no money.
Race in America
Sponsor Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) calls it the No Federal Funding for Confederate Symbols Act. H.R. 3660 would more appropriately be titled the Monuments to Slavery Bill.
Before he introduced the new legislation to the House on August 18, 2017 Rep. Espaillat joined Congressman Dwight Evans to announce the purpose:
Federal Funds Should Not Support Monuments to Slavery or White Supremacy.
There is an enormous contradiction in African American anger at the institutions many in urban communities rely on to survive. The riots this week in Charlotte aren’t about police shootings or oppression. Neither were the violent outbreaks in Ferguson or Baltimore.
Keeping the streets safe is becoming impossible because of cowardly Democratic politics that bows to activists to keep the votes coming in. If we can’t tolerate police using force against criminals of color, then we should stop policing communities where race is more important than the law.
The terror attack in Nice didn’t blunt or even distract us from growing racial anger in the U.S. Instead, liberal factions continue to blame police for deaths without trial, evidence, or facts except for what they learn from the media and protest ringleaders.
Words paved the road to Dallas. Black and white hate speech thinly disguised as progressive rhetoric is now the norm. It comes from community activists and groups like Black Lives Matter. We hear it from the leaders we trust to not incite chaos.
Does voting harm the African American community? Is it a waste of time? The black vote is treasured as an entitlement by Democrats who offer hope for change in election after election, but the outlook for low-income, undereducated African Americans is not improving.
