What Charles Barkley said about black people always voting for Democrats

What Charles Barkley said about black people always voting for Democrats January 28, 2016

Lately, people have been speaking out against the strong hold that Democrats have over black voters.

For example, ESPN’s Stephen Smith said that for at least ONE election, blacks should vote Republican:

“What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican,” he said. “Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.”

Recently, I noticed this quote from basketball legend Charles Barkley:

“Poor people have been voting for Democrats for the last fifty years… and they are still poor.”

I love seeing black people having the courage to point out the obvious!  What we’ve been doing hasn’t worked.  It’s time for a change.
