Speaking at a meeting of Black Republicans, Congressman Allen West said that the Democratic Party is “the most racist party I’ve ever seen in my life”.
The RNC Convention coverage has been an elaborate testament to that racism. That bigotry has been under the surface and above it. It’s there when minority speakers get ignored or moved out of sight so as not to offend liberal viewers on MSNBC. It’s there when the racist vandalism of Mia Love’s page is vandalized and that vandalism is ignored. It’s there when Allen West is depicted beating white women.
And here is what Allen West had to say yesterday about moving African-Americans out of the D plantation.
“There’s no other group more conservative on a Sunday than the black community. But someone’s got to tell me, Lucy, what happens Monday through Saturday? And that’s what’s got to change,” he said. “For too long this community has invested its political capital in one political party and what are the dividends that you have gotten back from that?”
He pointed out that the unemployment among blacks is significantly higher than the rest of the country, particularly for teenagers, and that the median income for black families has dropped 11 percent since President Barack Obama took office.
