Steve Smith: all blacks should vote repub

Cause and effect. Look like the blacks are waking up to the fact the dems do nothing but use and abuse them. It's not the cops who are racist. It's not the repub who are racist. It is the progressives who who think they own black America.



On Tuesday, ESPN regular Stephen A. Smith spoke at the Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University on the topic of “How You See It: Perceptions of (In)Equality.”

Smith believes that every black person in America should vote Republican at least once so that both parties could address their interests.

“What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican,” he said. “Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.”

He also added, “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a **bleep** about you.’ They’re telling the other party ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself ‘disenfranchised’ because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb. The other party knows they’ll never get you and nobody comes to address your interest.”

Didn't he get fired from ESPN...I'm sure he needs to say whatever needs to be said to keep his name in the media 20....he's kinda stuck too!!

I thank you on behalf of all the colored folks who regularly read and need to be straightened out.

Re: Steve Smith: all blacks should vote repub

Further, interesting how many people are dumb enough to believe Smith's assertions. I suppose if they've been Rip Van Winkled for the 40 years of seismic shift in US politics maybe they'd be fair game.


Also an interesting post from someone whose apparent life's work is to exterminate every Republican who is the even slightly to the left of Nathan Bedford Forrest.
