Those protesters who are most apt to appear on the street wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirt in honor of Eric Garner are ignoring some important facts.
Like, for instance, the fact that the liberal government policies pushed by the Democrats they tend to vote for have only exacerbated the social problems that they complain about — like income inequality, for example.
Exactly. Policies like federal minimum wage laws limit the number of jobs available to workers of all colors, pushing more of them towards government assistance in a cynical attempt to make as many Americans as possible dependent on the government.
Black unemployment is at record high levels under President Barack Obama, and his administration’s response to the problem has been twofold — increase welfare spending and throw open America’s borders to allow even more low-skilled workers into the country to compete for what jobs do exist.
In other words, the president has taken actions that can only make black unemployment worse in the long term.
Nor does Obama promote the individual responsibility that many blacks have relied upon to break the cycle of poverty in their family, instead blaming American society for the problem and promising that government will fix it.
He might be sincere in believing that’s possible — although sincerity is never a given with this man — but if so, he’s sincerely wrong.
I can’t remember ever hearing a successful black man praising the government handouts that made him that way.
