Did black voters abandoning political plantation cause Hillary Michigan loss?
By Kevin Fobbs

The former Secretary of Snake threw snake eyes and it appears young blacks decided to look around at their world as it is and not as union and area black leaders who were bought off by the Clintons want them to see it. This resulted in Hillary Clinton's political firewall meltdown which was due in part to a searing Socialist flamethrower used by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. For more than twenty plus years the Detroit black vote has been as reliable as counting on a sure bet at any casino in the Motor City.

But there is also something equally as important that occurred in the election that may have even escaped the disappointed Clinton democrat poll watchers. If young black voters in Detroit, Flint, Kalamazoo, Muskegon and Metro Detroit are taking a second look at who is feeding them the company Kool Aid, then maybe they would be willing to look across the political aisle at the republicans as well.

Sure, their elders in the neighborhood as well as on the job and even in their classrooms have always had ready political responses to suggestions that the GOP might be the answer they should be consider. This notion was soundly repudiated as being in bed with the devil. This illogical comparison was not only baseless but it was perpetrated by the same democrat party that stood in the way of black students in the south trying to receive an equal education in the 1950s and 1960s.

But why should blacks search for the truth about the party that has politically denied you the right to vote for one hundred years and then enslaved you for over fifty more with the lie that the GOP does not want you to be equal.

Whenever one of the young black voters made even a lukewarm attempt to raise the question about why their neighborhood schools remained inadequate or why jobs were fleeing and black on black crime was escalating, black voters were reminded that the KKK was alive and well in the GOP. If the questions continued, Democrats simply rolled in Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or their local counterparts to diffuse any potential threats to the democrat liberal illusions planted in the fertile enslavement plantation gardens

Now any right-minded person using even an ounce of the common sense that God gave him or her would ask, "Where's the beef?"

All the Detroit voter had to do was ask a simple question of their minister who kept insisting that their destiny was with the democrats: "Why aren't the democrats creating jobs for me and my children. Why aren't the democrats stopping black on black crime that is killing my neighbors, friends and even family members, even more efficiently and completely than the KKK, who were also by the way democrats?"

The answer is quite simple, a lie lives longer than the truth, especially if that lie is spoken over and over each and every election cycle, always followed with the words, "Trust us, because we are looking out for you." Well, young black Detroit voters are not buying that swill any longer, because unlike their elders, they do have more than a little bit of common sense.

These young black voters only have to look at the literal wasteland that many parts of the city of Detroit has become. Homes and neighborhoods have been left decimated and abandoned and it occurred during their young lifetime with not a Republican in sight. The manufacturing jobs have disappeared, their educational opportunities have become a disaster and even the police chief has stressed that they get a gun if they want to be safe and survive in their homes.

So when the young black voters in Detroit as well as in other urban cities across Michigan had an opportunity to express their allegiance they decided to go with the socialist who had not spent decades using them and their families as useful sheep. Instead they pledged their support for a little known socialist who did not engage in name calling and race baiting demagoguery.

Sanders promised them that he would stand with them and not ahead of them only to abandon them until the next time the democrat and union establishment minstrel show comes to town.
