How Can Republicans Win Back The Black Vote?

Studies show that most black Americans are conservative and share the values of the Republican Party. However, even though the socialist policies of the Democrats have destroyed the economic and social fabric of black communities, most blacks continue to vote for Democrats. Blacks are voting against their own best interest for two primary reasons. One reason is the fact that black Americans have been wrongly convinced that the Republican Party is a racist party. The National Black Republican Association was founded for the express purpose of setting the civil rights record straight and exposing the Democratic Party’s failed socialism.

A detailed analysis of another key reason why Republicans are having very little success attracting more blacks into the Republican Party is provided in the article “Why Is the Black Vote in the Democrats’ Pocket that can be found on the Internet at: http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/why-is-the-...

Ochieng opines that blacks have been trained by Democrats to expect political parties to provide quid pro quo. In other words, while Republicans want to help blacks pursue happiness (teach blacks how to fish so they can feed themselves for a lifetime), Democrats want to provide happiness to blacks (give them a fish so they can eat for a day). Deeply rooted in the black community now is the belief that the government must “do something” for blacks.

We just nominated a black man for the GOP congressional seat that is opening in my district and he basically said the same thing about the black community.

OH Laura, thank you for sharing your thoughts and the article. So much to think about and truly an eye-opener. WOW. Thank you



You really need to contact the Conservative Black Association. Your information would be great for them.

Good aritcle Gianina. This is something that I've wondered about myself for awhile. I've wanted to respond this earlier when I had time for a thoughtful response but I never seem to have the time I want so I try to squeeze it in and hope it makes sense. I live just outside of Milwaukee. It's a city that has been governed by Democrats for that last 40 years and before that we had socialist Mayors. If there was a Republican Mayor he's long forgotten. The only elected Republican in office is the County Exec. and he was elected in because of a pension scandal the former Dem. County Exec. So I tell you this because Wisconsin is big on social programs and Milwaukee being Democrat and the biggest city gets alot of the funding and influence for those programs so if this is what is needed to help people along you would think after 40 years the black population in Milwaukee would be in a good place. Unfortunately it's quite the reverse. We just found out that black fourth grade students in Milwaukee are at the lowest reading/comprehension levels in the entire nation and District of Columbia. Violence/gang activity and unemployment are high among the black population in a city of Milwaukee's size. I volunteer in one the worst areas of the city and I can't tell you how many times I want to ask them "when is this going to outrage you? When do you start believing that there is more for you and all you have to do is make a change?" Sometimes that change may be just to vote someone else in. I'm not trying to be judgemental but there's only so much a person can do for people in that situation. At some point those people have start doing for themselves. And, at some point, don't you start to question the people who keep reminding you that you are different and can't make it on your own without the governments help? Anyhow I could go on and on and on about this and would probably just talk in circles so I'm just going to include an article or I guess preview of a book but a woman whose opinion I share.http://townhall.com/columnists/StarParke...
