Very rarely do top-tier legendary athletes talk about their lives before fame, and when they do it is usually the type of blather designed by agents, coaches, and handlers. So we should be thankful to the producers of HBO’s new show, “The Shop,” which is a talk-interview show formatted as a conversation in an old-fashioned barbershop. Yes, they still exist but are often found off the beaten path or in small communities.

Speaking about attending an all-white Catholic school when he was 14 years old, LeBron James notes, “When I first went to the 9th grade in high school, I was like, I’m not f–ing with white people. Like if my… I was so institutionalized growing up in the ‘hood; it’s like, they don’t f—k with us, they don’t want us to succeed. The hierarchy (pointing) and they were here and we underneath this chair. So I’m like, I’m going to this school to play ball, and that’s it. I don’t want nothing to do with white people,’”

Exposing the elemental truth that the blacks were segregated, institutionalized, and exploited by the Democrat Party who supported slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and fought hard against the implementation of civil rights legislation.

And, this institutionalism continues today in the form of progressive socialist democrat class warfare politics where continuing victimhood is exploited for the purpose of obtaining and maintaining political power. With the Democrats offering entitlements, including affirmative action and relaxed standards, and an opportunity to redress historical grievances in return for the black vote and political power.  Aided an abetted by a self-service black leadership that is also about preserving their power by promoting racism and the status quo. Encouraging non-standard speech, dress, and behavior that stresses physical differences and makes assimilation into the broader culture more difficult. Giving blacks a pass when it comes to moral behavior and blaming the collective society rather than the individual perpetrator. Where is the American ideal of responsible fatherhood promoted and practiced? Why does the community accept non-resident, non-child-supporting men that have six children with six women?

And with the Democrats supporting their “brothers and sisters” in the communist-creation Black Liberation Theology which speaks of militancy, revolution, and separatism.

“Black liberation theology actually encourages a victim mentality among blacks. John McWhorters' book Losing the Race, will be helpful here. Victimology, says McWhorter, is the adoption of victimhood as the core of one's identity – for example, like one who suffers through living in "a country and who lived in a culture controlled by rich white people." It is a subconscious, culturally inherited affirmation that life for blacks in America has been in the past and will be in the future a life of being victimized by the oppression of whites. In today's terms, it is the conviction that, 40 years after the Civil Rights Act, conditions for blacks have not substantially changed.” <Source>

Trillions of dollars have been pumped into the fight against poverty, yet the inner cities, governed for decades under progressive socialist democrats, many of them black, remain cesspools of poverty, illiteracy, disease, drugs, and crime. How is it that we have levels of weekly murder and mayhem not see even in war areas like Iraq and Afghanistan? With some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation? And, with all of those willing “protesters” some of whom are eager to burn down or loot their community in protest of a legitimate police encounter? Where law enforcement is despised even though it is that thin blue line that stands between the people and anarchy.

The answer is simple. The progressive socialist democrats and the black leadership do not want things to change. The will avoid any change that upsets their power.

Perhaps Booker T. Washington, prominent and revered education, author, and orator of his day, said it best …


Bottom line…

How is it that the progressive socialist democrats and their black cohorts are ranting and railing against President Donald Trump when he has done more for the economy, small business, and the black community than former progressive presidents, including Carter, Clinton, Bushes, and even the “great” Barack Hussein Obama who mostly doubled down on the Bush agenda while appointing blacks to visible positions in the administrations.

How is it that black immigrants do better, as a whole, that American blacks? How is it that citizens allow the actual history of black racism and the Democrats to be projected onto the GOP? A GOP who is reluctant to stand up and be counted lest they are labeled racists. Perhaps it is time to point out what voting for the GOP means to the black community.

If America continues to listen to the progressive propaganda and vote Democrat, we are majorly screwed.
