As a former NAACP leader, C.L. Bryant chronicles the American Black’s voyage from the black underground perspective of the Civil War through the 1960’s (pre JFK) as a voting block for the Republican Party, and the gains to their economic and social progress in America. Sans the Dr. Martin Luther King era and John F Kennedy’s presidency, when former President Lyndon Johnson made social welfare a household word, the “black vote” has gone 95% to the Democrat Party. According to the findings of Dr. Bryant, the economic and social advances in the black community have been in decline due to their blind allegiance to a Party that has indoctrinated generations of black families to worship the benevolence of government welfare. A government that socially manipulates (dictates) behavior to keep the gravy train of welfare dollars coming to them, with acceptable behavior and the votes to perpetuate this system.
Since this weekend is in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, I believe Dr. Bryant’s video here and a link to the trailer of his video; “Runaway Slave”, is the time to remind us all that the way it is now, is not as it has always been.
