Just two days ago I wrote a post outlining myriad reasons why Black Americans should not vote for Hillary Clinton. Now I have some support for my contention from the most unlikely source.
If one were to say, choose a group of Black Americans who would support Hillary Clinton, I am confident many of my readers would choose “Black Lives Matter (BLM).” Now the group’s founder says that Black Americans would be nuts to support Hillary.
Alicia Garza, founder of the controversial group, made a strong case against Clinton in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. She said, “The Clinton’s use black people for votes, but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.”
“Early on, she (Clinton) would say, ‘Yes, black lives matter,’ but she wouldn’t acknowledge her role in the processes that fundamentally showed black lives did not matter,” Garza said.
Former President Bill Clinton told BLM protesters that they were actually “defending the people who kill the lives (they) say matter.” “I was angry about that for about a month,” she stated. “Seriously, like every single day. It’s reprehensible for him to defend the impacts his policies have had on our communities.”
“Lots of people (are responsible for) implementing and protecting systems, practices, structures that fundamentally exclude, disenfranchise, marginalize black people”
Do I think she will switch the group’s support to Donald Trump. That is extremely unlikely. But for every 10 Black Americans who DO NOT GO to the polls that is the equivalent of 9 votes for Trump!
And thanks to Liberty Volunteers and Bay Area Patriots for bringing this to my attention.
