Black Congressional Leadership Crisis Must End

State of Emergency: The Black Congressional Leadership Crisis in America Must End

By the Black Conservative Activist Coalition

 

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — The Congressional Black Caucus Democrats sat down on Black America at this year’s State of The Union Address. They have shunned an unprecedented opportunity to help the black community; and have chosen to resist the will of the people at every turn.

Rather than work with President Donald Trump who has offered real solutions to long ignored problems in the black community, these strident members of Congress have staged childish protests. They have declined White House invitations, yet continue serving as pawns of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

The CBC sat down on news of the black unemployment rate hitting an all-time low – down in December of 2017 to a record 6.8% – from a whopping 16.8% in March of 2010. The new rate is projected to drop even more as a result of the massive tax cut and reform initiative recently signed by the president.

Would the CBC have been happier if conditions were becoming worse for an already struggling black community if such a tragedy had served to help the CBS’s attempts to further discredit Donald Trump?

The president’s dynamic economic news represented in falling unemployment, rising wages, record-breaking stock market, and a strengthening of the business environment is wonderful news for the black community. These gains represent our best hope to lift our people out of poverty and despair and to deliver us from the crippling effects of government dependency that the CBC continues to peddle as our best hope.

The CBC majority’s choice of government run policies consisting of entitlements and handouts, reportedly designed to alleviate poverty in America has been a dismal failure by all accounts.

Since 1966 when the poverty rate in America was 14.7 percent, U.S. taxpayers have spent over 20 trillion dollars in poverty reduction programs only to see the poverty rate decrease by a little more than one percentage point. Today, after 53 years of pursuing the policies that the Congressional Black Caucus continues to champion for black America, the poverty rate is at 13.5 percent.

The resistant CBC continues to promote and pursue the failed policies of the past; blocking productive discussions with the White House that could open up increased access to the flowing economic rivers for the people they pretend to care for and repre-sent.

Meanwhile, the Latino Coalition has met with Vice President Pence to discuss entrepreneurship and economic development among Hispanics in America, mapping ways to increase what is already a record-breaking surge of Hispanic business development in America.

In addition, the White House has increased its already blossoming open door access policy to Black leaders who are on board for pro-growth socioeconomic justice.

The CBC is not only sitting down on the job, they are failing the black community regarding our economic health, as well as failing us miserably in probably the most important effort of all; defending the sanctity of life. Rather than stopping the practice of black genocide where millions of black children are being aborted, the CBC supports bolstering tax subsidized abortion providers and institutions such as Planned Parenthood.

The CBC’s failure to join the current administration in turning back the horrific gains that the abortion industry realized during the previous administration is unconscionable, and a clear indicator as to exactly where the CBC’s priorities are. They obviously are not prioritizing the dreams of black children in the same way they chose to defend Hispanic “dreamers,” as evidenced by their lack of courage in standing up against a government that continues to subsidize the legal killing of millions of black children who will never even get to have a dream.

Some CBC legislators were willing to shut down the federal government to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients because they said: “It would be cruel to deport children who came here illegally at no fault of their own.” We would remind the CBC that the child in the womb of the black mother got there “by no fault of their own” as well. Therefore, we would think the CBC would be equally willing to shut things down in the black child’s defense… especially in shutting down Planned Parenthood.

In the final analysis, the current black congressional leadership is morally bankrupt and inadequate to lead their constituents towards availing themselves to the benefits of the positive economic trends currently taking place in this country. If this current class of black congressional leadership does not experience a monumental transformation in their approach to moral and ethical governance, black Americans must somehow summon the courage and intestinal fortitude to consider other options that include sitting the existing petulant CBC down permanently by removing them from office and starting anew.
