“The second from the Malcolm X series. Although I do not agree with his early philosophy, he sets the record straight and reveals the Truth about the Democratic Party!!
Correction Sen. Fulbright is from AR not AK.”
From Frantz Kebreau
Malcolm X explaining perfectly why African-Americans (and I would add any race of people in America) shouldn’t be tied down to any political party in America. Because once a political party feels that certain voters will always vote for them and that they have no other place to go, that is when they get taken advantage and the party leadership feels we no longer have to listen to them: “Because they are going to vote for us anyway.”
African-Americans in the 1950s and 60s were politically taken advantage by the Democratic Party. They got taken advantage of by the Democratic Party because the right-wing Dixiecrats in Congress, the Southern Caucus were blocking civil rights legislation, while Republicans in Congress were in favor of it especially in the Northeast and Midwest. And today the parties have essentially flipped flopped geographically and ideologically.
