For me, I rarely share my political views for obvious reasons. Like religion, one can reserve the right to keep their beliefs to themselves. This is why I have not openly shared my views regarding “my president, Barack Obama” (hint…hint…). The one thing this election shows is that RACE STILL MATTERS and the problem WILL NOT BE SOLVED until Jesus returns’ (come quickly Lord Jesus…).
As African Americans have voted and tuned in on the presidency, Hispanics are firmly opposing Black leaders in favor of white ones. Is the brotherhood among minorities dead? The Democratic primaries in California and Texas woke up a lot of people. During this election, there was a lot of talk going on about the “Black and Brown” divide. Most people have assumed for decades that since Blacks and Hispanics are minorities, it is only natural that they will support each other for elective office. Wrong!
BLACK PEOPLE LISTEN UP: Hispanics have always viewed themselves as a “dominant” group.
While Blacks have helped to elect Hispanics (The wife-cheating Mayor of Los Angeles, for example) it is abundantly clear that Hispanics have a clear opposition to voting for Black candidates. Whether it’s viable Black candidates like Ron Kirk, the former mayor of Dallas who lost his bid for the senate, or now Barack Obama running for president, Hispanics have opted to vote for the white candidate–or not at all. Up until recently, this trend has been most notable in places like California and Texas, but as the legal/illegal Hispanic populations increase across the nation, I note that this trend is not just isolated to the southwest United States.
What we see is that when the candidates are Democrat or Republican, Hispanics will routinely vote Democrat. However, when the candidate is Black and his opponent is White, Hispanics will tend to vote against the Black candidate as we’re seeing in the Obama/Clinton race. During “Super Tuesday” for presidential candidates, California voters chose their candidates for president. Hispanics make up a huge block of voters in California and they overwhelmingly chose Hillary Clinton over Obama by 64% according to MSNBC. It is now clear that being a fellow minority hasn’t created any kinship with Hispanics in America if we ever had this. We’ve all heard of the racial school fights that are almost a daily occurence in California, and the situation in the jails is so balkanized that even rival gangs like the Crips and Bloods put aside their street differences, while in prison, in order to put up a resistance to the Hispanics in jail, many of whom are illegal aliens.
What we see coming into form is a two front assault: Whites against Blacks on the one hand and Hispanics against Blacks on the other.
It’s clear that Hispanic disdain for Black people is no accident and it is clear this is not a trend we will see diminish. As Hispanic influence increases, we will see fewer and fewer opportunities for Black Americans develop. Remain in denial about this if you want, the proof will definitely be IN the pudding. We will be in the middle of a giant squeeze play, crushed between Whites on one hand and Hispanics on the other. While no one should construe this article to mean anyone should be anti-Hispanic (or anti-anyone else for that matter) we as Black people need to see to our own affairs first. We can’t just support people because they are white—-or Black for that matter. Screw-ups cross every ethnic line.
Hopefully this will “open the eyes” of OUR people who have slept on this for years, decades even. “BE for US, by US.”
