Liberalism, the Cause of Chaos for the African American Community in America

The African American community in America is in great need, and many politicians and organizations search for ways to help them. The unemployment rate for the African American community is nearly double the national average at over 7%. 27.4% of African Americans are in poverty, the highest of any racial or ethnic group. 34% of the total correctional population in America is made up of African Americans. Only 12% of African Americans meet the ACT College Readiness Benchmark for science, only 14% for math, and only 34% for English, and those are only the African Americans that took the ACT test.

What leads to the chaos for the African American community in America? The results may be surprising.

75% of the African American community (24 million) live in 44 cities in America. And 40 of those cities have liberal Democratic mayors. And 23 of those 40 cities have had liberal Democrat mayors for 47 years straight or longer.

Liberalism is in full effect in the cities where African Americans live, and it is causing chaos for them.

The local economies that African Americans are looking for jobs in are managed by liberal democrats. The laws that African Americans are being arrested for, are created by liberal democrats. The schools that African Americans attend are run by liberal democrats. The liberal democratic policies are failing the African American community.

Liberalism equates to big government policies. Policies that take more money from the people, and centralizes it to the government. And policies that take freedom and rights of the people, and centralizes it to the government. It is not liberal democrats that are specifically the problem. But, it is the more money to the state, and more power to the state policies that hurt the African American community, and everyone.

Many liberals try to convince the African American community that bigger government and more powerful government agencies will equate to a more thriving African American community. But the exact opposite is true. For example, there were over 96,000 pages of the Federal Register (the government book that keeps track of all the federal regulations) at the end of 2016. Yet, the unemployment rate of the African American community was at 8.4% nationwide in 2016, nearly twice as high as the national average. Likewise, as the size of government programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid increase the quality of life for the African American community doesn’t improve, and more than likely get worse. There is more that can be done to improve the quality of life for the African American community than re-distributing wealth. The liberal Democrats tell the African American community to vote for more money and power to the state, then the state takes that money and gives it to major corporations, usually run by rich white men. 

The conservative and libertarian’s advocacy for free-market capitalism will literally take money away from businesses run by rich white men, that the government gave them, and allow the African American community to keep their money.

Their advocacy will also protect the economy, and allow businesses run by the African American community, or those businesses relied on by the African American to produce, make money, and compete, instead of manipulating the market through free cash, regulations, and other incentives that help the rich elites and suppress everyone else.

Conservatives and libertarian’s love for the bill of rights, if implemented, will literally protect the African American’s free speech rights, and allow them to say what they want whether the majority wants to take their free speech rights away or not. The implementation of the 2nd amendment will literally protect the African American communities’ right to protect themselves from criminals and the police. The implementation of the 4th and 5th of amendments of the constitution will literally protect the private property rights of the African American community, and not allow the police to take away their property on accusation of a crime through asset forfeiture, nor will it allow a small group of elite bankers to transfer their wealth away from them without their knowledge or permission, through the process of currency creation. The ideal conservative and libertarian agenda protects the rights of the African American community and allows them to keep more of their money.

Limiting the size scope power and influence of the government, will protect the rights of the African American, and allow them to flourish.
