A coalition of black leaders on Friday came out strongly in support of voter ID laws, arguing that most black voters feel the same way they feel, rebuking the left, and hardly pushing back on the opinions by progressive leaders. Real Clear Politics Reported on the Group.
“It’s clear that most Blacks support voter ID, and it’s obvious why we do so,” reported Just The News about the colation, citing a recent Rasmussen Reports poll that “found that 69% of Blacks and 82% of nonwhite minorities support voter ID,” while another recent poll “found that a full two-thirds of Blacks in Georgia support voter ID.”
BOLD REBUKE OF WHITE LIBERALS
The group claims that “elites, most of whom are white, have enabled them, taking it upon themselves to determine who the ‘leaders’ of the Black community are and ignoring anyone else who suggests differently.” These elites, they state, are “totally oblivious to the real Black leaders” whose opinions differ from activists like Abrams.
WHAT THEY WANT AMERICA TO KNOW
“America is a country of over 300 million people. We are comprised of every shape, size, nationality, and opinion. This diversity has proven to be one of our greatest strengths.
However, if you listened to largely white liberal media personalities and elite CEOs, you wouldn’t know this. According to liberal orthodoxy, all Blacks think alike, and all Blacks support Black Lives Matter, and all Blacks oppose the recently enacted Georgia Election Integrity Act,” Real Clear Politics reported about Black Conservatives; Rep. Burgess Owens, Robert Woodson, Jennifer Carroll, Ken Blackwell, Raynard Jackson, George Farrell, James Wright & Michael Murphy.
Why then do opportunistic activists like Stacey Abrams pretend the entire Black community stands behind them and the radical Democrat Party? Why do they pretend that Black people are either opposed to voter ID or, even more offensively, that Blacks are incapable of obtaining IDs? The answer is in part because the elites, most of whom are white, have enabled them, taking it upon themselves to determine who the “leaders” of the Black community are and ignoring anyone else who suggests differently.
These elites are totally oblivious to the real Black leaders, such as civil rights legend Robert Woodson and Richard Finley; younger leaders like Wall Street wizard John Burnett; National Black Chamber of Commerce founders Harry and Kay Alford; Michael Murphy, political operative extraordinaire from Georgia; business and football legend Herschel Walker; Texas state Rep. James White; 21-year-old West Virginia state Rep. Caleb Hanna; former Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer S. Carroll; former ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Commission Ken Blackwell; and U.S. Congressmen Byron Donalds and Burgess Owens, to name a few.
What do all these people have in common? They are all Republican, therefore white liberal elites don’t deem them to be Black because they come from a conservative perspective.
If corporate America wants to be truly woke, they must wake up to the fact that activists like Stacey Abrams — and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton before her — absolutely do not represent the Black community; they represent the membership of their radical activist organizations and the interests of white elites, who are eager to open our borders wide and send more jobs overseas regardless of the effects these disastrous policies have on the Black community.
