As Black History Month 2020 comes to a close, here are some of the recent highlights.
Former NFL star Jack Brewer, a prominent Democrat who has praised de facto Third Party President Donald Trump’s many accomplishments for the African American Community, called Trump “the First Black President” at the Black History Month Roundtable at the White House on Thursday.
Brewer’s remark was a light-hearted variation on the way Bill Clinton was often called the first black president, but given President Trump’s incredible and unprecedented economic achievements for African Americans, the truth behind Brewer’s levity shone through.
Trump’s rapport with so many African American voters seems to be part of the reason that Republican trash like George W Bush, Mitt Romney and the National Review crowd oppose him.
“I’ve been a Democrat all my life but I’m not a Democrat now,” Brewer said. “You’ve changed me. You touched me. And you made my work go to another level. You inspire me. And every time I go into those prisons and I ask my guys how many of them had their sentences reduced and they raise their hands, I know I’m doing God’s work and I thank you for that.” (Note from Balladeer: A reference to President Trump’s prison reform policies.)
Brewer also noted that President Trump had ignited “a tremendous awakening in the country” among black Americans. “Donald Trump will get over 20% of the black vote,” Jack said . “That is what’s going to win the election. Why? Because there hasn’t been a Republican to even try to go in and talk to the black community. They don’t go there. They don’t even try. I think he’s trying, finally.” (Note from Balladeer: History is being made, that’s for sure.)
Brewer continued by criticizing the failed policies of Barack Obama – “it left a bad taste in my mouth,” he said . “And then I really started being awakening [sic] to what was happening with the Democratic Party — making so many promises but then abandoning the community that I worked so hard in.” (Note from Balladeer: The Democrats do that to all of the working class and the poor, unfortunately.)
“I said enough was enough, and I really started putting aside what my parents and my grandparents taught me about sticking to the Democratic Party because they were the party for African Americans,” Brewer said. “You know all that rhetoric sounded good back in the ’60s, but the facts are that the (Democrats’) policies just don’t help our families.”
Last year at the Black History Month Roundtable the guests pointed out that President Trump has “done more for African Americans than any other president of our lifetimes.”
