Consider one of Martin Luther King, Jr’s most well-known “dreams”: One day we will judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.
It’s easy to see where we are now. As far as opportunity and voice in society, the black community has never had it better in the United States. If you look worldwide, they’ve got it better than blacks anywhere else on the earth.
That is not to say there aren’t issues, but they’re nowhere near like the Democrats would have you believe. There isn’t white supremacy lurking around every corner, as they would have you believe. Blacks aren’t being hunted or lynched. They’re not being slaughtered by police.
Quite the contrary. We’ve had a two-term black president. A black woman is one of the most powerful women in the world. Many black people own their own businesses or play prominent roles in U.S. corporations.
But Democrats will tell you it’s worse than ever and talk about race incessantly. They’re constantly accusing conservatives of being racist. They’re doing their best to convince the black community they’re victims, they have no chance in this country, that systemic racism will always keep them down, and they’re inherently defective because they’re black.
I’m curious what this will look like 10 or 20 years from now. What’s the road map for race relations in this country when the journey starts by convincing an entire race that they don’t stand a chance, they’re victims, and only the Democrat Party can solve their problems by giving them everything?
I wonder how it would have been if we had continued on President Trump’s trajectory of lowest black unemployment in history. In a conservative Trump world, people would just get up every day, try to do their best, overcome the obstacles life serves each of us, and see how far you can get that day.
Which path is the quickest road to colorblind? On which route do we get to a point where people stop pointing out who’s black and who’s not and how much worse something would have been if a black person tried this or that.
Which path would leave us more united? Which would make us more divided?
If the Democrats would stop talking about race for a minute, perhaps people could stop thinking about color and just deal with people as people. You know, judge them by the content of their character, ‘n all that.
Unfortunately, we chose the alternate path. Sorry Dr. King.
