Why Does the Left Hate Blacks?

Republican Abraham Lincoln won the 1860 presidential election after the democrats split their votes between two pro-slavery candidates.

The democrat-led states then seceded to preserve slavery. After the Civil War, southern democrats continued to persecute black Americans through the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, and literacy tests.

In 1912, democrats elected Klansman and notorious segregationist Woodrow Wilson to the presidency. As president, Wilson segregated the federal government (even requiring applicants to include photos with their civil service applications) and appointed fellow Klansmen to high positions, including Justice Hugo Black, author of the notorious Korematsu decision which approved FDR’s internment of American citizens of Japanese descent during World War II.

When President Johnson passed civil rights legislation in the 1960s, he drew more support from the opposition Republicans than from his own democratic party.

This is not ancient history. Joe Biden has referred to school busing as “an asinine policy” and a “bankrupt concept.” He has praised fellow democratic senators, Eastland and Byrd. Senator Eastland was known as the “Voice of the White South.” Senator Byrd was both the longest serving U.S. senator in history and founder of the Sophia, West Virginia, branch of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd claimed “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation." Joe Biden voted for Byrd to be the senate majority leader. 

Forty percent of abortions in American are performed on Blacks. The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, was founded by Margaret Sanger, a proponent of eugenics and welcomed speaker at a Klu Klux Klan rally. She famously declared, "We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

Joe Biden supports Ralph Northam, governor of Virginia who sported blackface and klan garb in his med school yearbook.

Blacks are disproportionately poor. The left supports poverty traps in the tax code. When the marginal tax rate is measured as both the increase in taxes and loss of benefits on the next dollar earned, the people with the highest marginal tax rates are the working poor, sometimes losing as much as 70% on the next dollar earned.

The left supports regressive taxes and regulations that increase the cost of food and energy, which disproportionately impact the poor. The left blocks companies like Walmart from servicing needy communities.

Blacks are disproportionately the victims of violence. The left supports defunding the police, withdrawing security from minority neighborhoods, and releasing violent criminals.

Black children are disproportionately trapped in failing schools. The left supports blocking school choice, blocking charter schools, blocking school vouchers, and blocking school reforms.

Blacks are disproportionately unemployed and underemployed. The left supports the Davis Bacon Act, legislation requiring government contractors to pay “prevailing wages”. The legislation was specifically created to prevent blacks from competing with whites for jobs. The left also supports raising the minimum wage, which depresses youth employment.

Blacks are disproportionately in jobs that cannot telecommute. The left supports keeping segments of the economy shut down, even as the pandemic’s fatality rate continues to fall.

Mayor Tagliarini was a lifelong Republican until he joined the democrats to run for mayor. At the time, he told me party affiliation didn’t matter at the local level. If that was ever true, it certainly isn’t now. Time to ask the mayor, why are you still a democrat?
