The Democrats, the party of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, the Trail of Tears, the Japanese Internment and so much more, continue to treat African-Americans as if they are still slaves on the Democrats’ plantations. Last week Georgia State Democrat Representative Vernon Jones (left) endorsed de facto Third Party President Donald Trump instead of the Democrats’ probable candidate Joe Biden.
Per the Democrats at the Atlanta Journal Constitution and at The Hill:
“Jones told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he was not switching parties but praised Trump’s policies on certain issues.
“It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign,” Jones told the newspaper.
“There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones added. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.” […]
“A generation of African American families have been devastated by draconian policies that Joe Biden supported and voted for when he served in the U.S. Senate,” Jones said in a statement to CBS 46. “A change was needed and President Trump took action.”
That was just last week. Privileged white Democrats have since hounded the courageous Jones, as usual implying that any voters of color who disobey white Democrats are not “authentic.”

“I don’t plan to leave the Democratic Party because somebody’s got to be in there to hold them accountable —hold them accountable to how they are treating black people (and) root out the bigotry,” Jones said on The Rashad Richey Morning Show shortly after announcing his resignation.
“I intend to help the Democrat Party get rid of its bigotry against Black people that are independent … ” Jones said in the statement announcing his resignation. “I endorsed the White guy (Donald J. Trump) that let Blacks out of jail, and they endorsed the White guy (Joe Biden) that put Blacks in jail.” Continue reading
