For years, Jesse Jackson has been a charlatan and a shakedown artist. He plays the race card and looks for the racial angle. Jackson became a loyal Democrat in the 1970s and helped deliver the vote of the black community. In exchange, the Democrats have tolerated Jesse Jackson's behavior.
Times are changing. Today, more and more blacks are looking to the Republican party.
George Will points out that 2006 "could produce a remarkable quartet of Republican victories -- black U.S. senators from Maryland (Michael Steele, who now is lieutenant governor) and Michigan (Keith Butler, former Detroit city councilman and currently pastor of a suburban church with a congregation of 21,000), and black governors in Pennsylvania (Lynn Swann, the former Pittsburgh Steeler) and Ohio (Ken Blackwell, currently secretary of state)."
This is going to drive Jesse crazy. Imagine Gov. Swann and Sen. Steele addressing the 2008 Republican convention!
Beyond that, these black Republicans are conservatives on cultural values. They are part of a growing black movement that sees the welfare state as the chief culprit of the community's problems.
Larry Kudlow writes that "Blackwell has rejected the victimology of many black activists and opted for a different path, championing school choice, opposing abortion and advocating low taxes as a road to prosperity."
Let's keep an eye on these wonderful candidates. More and more blacks are saying no to victimhood and yes to personal responsibility! Today, it means yes to Republicans and no to Democrats!
