ESPN’s Stephen Smith called out black Americans for blindly following the Democratic party. It looks like one pastor is taking his advice!
Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church of Chicago wants his congregation to think more before they vote.
“African Americans have been loyal to the Democratic Party,” Pastor Brooks said. “But there is a group of African Americans that feel like the Democratic Party has not been loyal to us.”
He invited ALL presidential nominees to visit his part of the city because he wants his church people to be informed about who they vote for. How great is that!
We have a large, disproportionate number of people who are impoverished. We have a disproportionate number of people who are incarcerated, we have a disproportionate number of people who are unemployed, the educational system has totally failed, and all of this primarily has been under Democratic regimes in our neighborhoods. So, the question for me becomes, how can our neighborhoods be doing so awful and so bad when we’re so loyal to this party who is in power? It’s a matter of them taking complete advantage of our vote.
Instead of manipulating his people or telling them there is only one way to think about the world of politics, he’s trying to open their minds to another way. If we vote the way we’ve always voted, we’ll get the results we’ve always gotten!
What are the chances a “reverend” like Al Sharpton would do that for the people who listen to him??
