One reason Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have a hard time attracting white voters is the high number of race hustlers that have become a fixture in their party. These people – such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – make a living off of blaming racism for every malady that affects the black community. Poverty? It’s because of racism. High crime rate? Chalk it up to racism. The large percentage of black men behind bars? Definitely racism. Bad schools? Racism, of course. The majority of black kids being born out of wedlock? That’s the fault of racism, too.
While I acknowledge the fact that racism is still an ongoing problem that needs to be addressed in our country, the race baters exaggerate it to a ridiculous level. They allow people to use it as an excuse to underachieve and make bad decisions when they should instead be encouraged to pull themselves up by the bootstraps and be the best they can be. The Democratic Party would do well to expel the race hustlers. And the sooner, the better. When they do, they will find that race relations will immediately improve, and they – as a party – will move closer to becoming the big they have long desired to be.
