I have written many times about reasons Black Americans should vote Republican rather than Democrat. By far the most poignant was the video made by Elbert Guillory. However, the following show many additional reasons Black Americans have been hoodwinked by the Democrat Party.
I doubt that I have made many converts – or any converts, for that matter. However, the Republican Party needs to do some simple math when it comes to national elections.

What are you rambling on about, Dr. Filly, ask you? I am rambling on about the following statistics:
If Republicans got 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined.
Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a high turnout of black voters on election day.
I have been very disappointed by the fact that the Presidency of Barack Obama led to more rather than less racial strife in our nation. Boy am I stupid!!!!! Of course, Barack Obama fostered an increased divide between Black and White America. He’s smarter than Republican strategists.
[From the Sowell article] People who expected the election of President Barack Obama to lead to racial healing and a post-racial society failed to take account of the political reality that racial healing and a post-racial society would, at a minimum, reduce black voter turnout.
The Democrat Party must, of necessity, keep Black voters fearful of Republicans. Racial harmony would be a disaster for Democrats! Hillary Clinton plays this political game (i.e., she poses as a defender of Black Americans) as well as anyone. Republicans shoot themselves in the foot by not making a concerted effort to show Black Americans the value to them when conservative principles are applied to US economics.
As with all aspects of “identity politics,” the go-to-strategy of the Democrat Party, racial turmoil is in no one’s best interests – except, of course, Democrat politicians and race hustlers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
