Joe Biden and Kamala Harris might be about to make history.
No, not as the presidential ticket that paves the way for the first black, female, and black female vice-president.
If they’re about to make history, it’s for having the first Democrat ticket in decades that is positively repellant to black voters.
The jig really seems to be up on the “Democrat plantation,” between Biden’s apparent belief that he can tell black voters whether or not they are indeed black based on who they pull the lever for in November and he and his running mate’s rather inconvenient history with the criminal justice system.
The Democrats still seem to count on the inability of black voters to assess the facts and judge the candidates based on their policies rather than race-baiting talking points, regardless of where they stand politically.
This week, Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell explained why young black voters really aren’t too excited about 2020’s Democratic ticket.
“For every African American, especially young African Americans, we point clearly to the 1994 Crime Bill, which was sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden. One which gave $9.7 billion to build private prisons in our country and provided grants and incentivized states to create what we call the three-strike law,” Caldwell told “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
He explained that the legislation was “very intentional and it created a fair amount of injustice for African Americans.”
“Joe Biden is a part of the problem therefore I don’t understand how anyone could be thinking he could fix the injustices when he was the one who created them,” Caldwell explained.
Of course, Biden and Harris both rely heavily on the narratives of racial injustice for the sake of their campaign. It is reminiscent of Democrat candidate for President John Kerry’s take on support of the Iraq war before he flip-flopped when he said, “I was for it before I was against it”.
“I think that Donald Trump and Bill Barr are spending full time in a different reality,” Harris said on CNN’s “State of the Union” in response to comments from Barr about the “false narrative” of systemic racial injustice.
“The reality of America today is what we have seen over generations and, frankly, since our inception, which is we do have two systems of justice in America,” she declared. She’s right. Hillary Clinton was not indicted for her secret server where classified information away passed through an unsecured server, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page still have not been held responsible for their corruption in the Russian collusion hoax.
Remember, this woman was the Attorney General to California, so even if it were true that there were two systems of justice in America…doesn’t this mean that she herself presided over such a system?
“I don’t think that most reasonable people who are paying attention to the facts would dispute that there are racial disparities and a system that has engaged in racism in terms of how the laws have been enforced,” she also said.
“I don’t think there are two justice systems,” Barr had said on CNN last week. “I think the narrative that the police are in some epidemic of shooting unarmed Black men is simply a false narrative and also the narrative that’s based on race.”
He’s right. For all their hemming and hawing, the left often can’t produce the actual data which shows that, high-profile, poorly-understood police shootings notwithstanding, black men are being killed by police at any disproportionate rate. That is where the myth lies.
Whatever side of this debate you may stand on, however, as Caldwell explained, young black voters are just not stoked about either Biden or Harris.
“Some of them just say hey, we’re not going to vote because they are a part of the system that got us in this mess to begin with,” Caldwell said.
“Joe Biden is going to have an issue because there is no way he is going to get President Obama’s 2008 numbers when it comes to African American support, which [was] at 94, 95, 96 percent. He is not going to get that, therefore, I think Joe Biden is going to lose this race for president.”
Biden’s problem isn’t Trump. It’s that black people are opening their eyes to the Democrat Party sham.
