The liberal media would have you think that one simply cannot be black AND Republican, but the fact is that more and more African Americans are become disenfranchised with Democrats.
This gives the Republican Presidential candidates an in with a community that has been largely claimed by Dems, but are they equipped to reach these voters?
Then came Corey!
Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginning Church in Chicago, IL has had it with the status quo (in this case, Democrats) and has invited every Presidential candidate, but specifically Republicans, to come to the south side of Chicago and meet with the voters of that area. He had this to say:
“We have a large, disproportionate number of people who are impoverished. We have a disproportionate number of people who are incarcerated, we have a disproportionate number of people who are unemployed, the educational system has totally failed, and all of this primarily has been under Democratic regimes in our neighborhoods. So, the question for me becomes, how can our neighborhoods be doing so awful and so bad when we’re so loyal to this party who is in power? It’s a matter of them taking complete advantage of our vote… And we don’t want anyone from any party taking us for granted.”
He believes the Dems have failed his community, and it’s time to try something new.
“They have a failing plan,” Brooks said of Democrats. “A business owner wouldn’t allow the person who runs it to remain in charge for 50 years, constantly running it into the ground.”
As of this writing, Rand Paul is the only candidate who has made the trip to Chicago’s south side, but many other candidates are gearing up for a visit. This could be an opportunity for Republicans to show that they are not the ignorant, bigoted racists the media and liberals make them out to be.
