One thing that continues to baffle me is how the progressives and Democratic party have somehow convinced Black people that they are the true friend of African Americans, and it is the Right wing people who are the racists.
And then when you deal with people on a daily basis, you find that the exact opposite is true. Most conservative people of my generation are well aware of the racism in our history, and have decided to treat people as people. It is the so called tolerant progressives that fan the flames, and want to convince you that no progress is being made, and that an “Us versus them” mentality is what is needed.
You see this most often in media, and also in liberal politicians. So, one way to improve the lot of Black people would be to quit hitching your star to a group of people who only use you because you will vote for them and keep them in power. Their main objective is to keep the races at each other’s throats, instead of actually encouraging unity.
