I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy if this [black] community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election.
That’s what President Barack Obama (D) said in front of the Congressional Black Caucus last Saturday.
All of Obama’s policies, which Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton insists she’ll not only continue but extend and expand, are on the ballot this November. Every single one of them.
Including, especially, those policies of his and his party that leave members of the black (and other minority) community worse off than they were 10 years ago. Economic policies that have black (and other minority) teenagers at higher unemployment rates than that time ago. Welfare policies that leave single-parent black (and other minority) families more thoroughly trapped on welfare and in poverty than that time ago.
Add to that list, now, the Democrats’ policy of personal arrogance, of being Better than us lesser mortals.
Because members of the black community cannot be trusted by Democrats to make up their own minds about the issues of this election. Not at all. They’re insulting Obama if they don’t follow his judgment instead of their own.
