The Election is over and the Republicans are now in charge of the Senate and the House. Let me tell you why this was the best thing for African American Democrats. African Americans have voted Democratic for many years. This election the Democratic Party showed they have little to no respect for the Black vote. They did not address any of the issues plaguing the Black Community and they treated President Obama as though he had Ebola. I believe the Democratic Party has serve its purpose, but now it’s time to move in a different direction. The injustices and unfairness are still true to this day. The Republicans have not changed their agenda and by now you should know what they stand for. It’s time for the Black Community to stand up and take destiny in their own hands. The Black Community should come up with an agenda and move forward with it. They need not to depend on Government, but depend on themselves. The American people are sick and tired of what is perceived to be whining and complaining from the Black Community right or wrong, but sometimes perception turns into reality. The Black Community should start leveraging their buying power, The Black Community should work harder at having two parents in the home and yes it does matter. The Black Community should stop looking for one person to solve their problems. The Black Community complains about high unemployment, which is true. The Black Community is far behind all races in Literacy. They must demand a better educational system and they must get an engaged on all levels. This is a Great Country not a Perfect Country. It’s time the Black Community sit down and have a long honest talk with one another and stop blaming and finding solutions.
