Hillary Plays the Race Card…WELL
As President of the United States, Bill Clinton implemented policies that savaged the Black community.
He slashed government assistance programs for the poor without providing commensurate job training that disproportionately affected African Americans.
He signed the Clinton Crime Bill, which commenced the grist mill of the prison industrial complex that has pilloried the African American community by sending more Black men to prison at a greater rate than ever in our nations history.
He sat silent as both the state of California and Texas ended affirmative action programs in higher education, which adversely affected the potential development of the Black middle class in those states, while setting dangerous trends for other states.
But Bill Clinton was the master of the politics of symbolism. Unfortunately, that was enough for most uninformed African Americans.
Is Hillary Clinton going to offer a progressive agenda for Black America in opposition to the onslaught commenced by her husband? Or will she master the politics of symbolism to gain the sympathy of willing Black enablers who sit and watch as their community is decimated? If the latter is Hillary’s plan, then what would these willing Black enablers have to gain from such betrayal?
Time will only tell.
You be the judge….
