Hillary and the DNC played blacks in the old Confederate states. By scheduling southern primaries early, voters in the Deep South could be counted upon to vote for Hillary, as Bernie Sanders would not have the opportunity to campaign in those states and to develop name ID. In voting for Hillary, black voters rejected the candidate who truly championed them, the candidate whose economic, education, and healthcare policies would have substantially improved the lives of African-Americans.
Complicit in that play were Democratic leaders in those southern states and members of the Black Congressional Caucus, all of whom were sucking up to Hillary Clinton.
They continued to support Clinton as the DNC cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic nomination. They continued to support Clinton when the DNC rigged the primaries. They continued to support Clinton when super delegates thwarted the will of the voters.
They continued to back Hillary when she opposed universal healthcare, when she opposed a $15 minimum wage, when she refused to release transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sachs.
Black political leaders were perhaps the single most important factor in Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic nomination.
Prior to the Democratic convention, polls showed that Bernie Sanders would easily defeat Donald Trump. And they showed that Clinton likely would not.
Clinton’s black political hacks continued to back her.
Now that Trump has trounced Hillary, those same black political hacks are complaining that racism has prevailed, that bigotry and intolerance are now to be the norm, that America has taken a step backwards.
What actually happened was that black leaders sold their people a bill of goods.
And they are now complaining after having done so.
African-Americans are rightfully concerned about racists now gaining positions of influence in the Trump administration.
And they can thank their leaders for all of it.
