The Mental Enslavement of Black Republicans

Throwing stones at Democrats from their glass plantation.

The Democratic Party does not have a perfect track record when it comes to Blacks, Latinos, and the LGBTQ community, but life in America most recalls life on the plantation when a Republican president is in office. That is why Blacks tend to vote Democrat.

Black Republicans who call the Democratic Party a plantation while stumping for Trump are the modern-day version of the free Blacks who used to help White masters recapture runaway slaves. It’s like because they’ve reached a certain economic position, all is right in Black America, and the way to continue thriving in the ranks of White Americans who look down on Black Americans is by pretending they don’t.
