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” and that is what happened to African-Americans in the 1950s and 60s. 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.
