I have always said that the Dems have marvelous ideas and plans….they just suck at politics and how to get those plans in motion.
Look at some of the more recent ideas…Green New Deal……a sweeping plan that could change everything in this country….and it will silently disappear after the next election……how about that Medicare For All….another excellent idea that would benefit all of American society…..and it will die an ignoble death……my point is as I have stated….great plans no umpf to get them done.
Now this brings me to the most recent situation in this country….the protests over the deaths of son many Blacks at the hands of the police….there have been many plans by many different activists…..but think about this….what is the “Big Plan” to fight this racism from the white Dems?
(Pause here for thought)
Here is the Dems promise for the future….Joe Biden…..https://lobotero.com/2020/06/18/biden-and-criminal-justice/
Fine words but I fear they are just that……WORDS.
Even before a Minneapolis police officer killed George Floyd, leading to a renewed national conversation about racial inequality, white Democrats were already pretty “woke” on some issues. An overwhelming majority of white Democrats said that racial discrimination was a major barrier to Black people getting ahead in America, that the police and the broader criminal justice system in America treated Black people unfairly and that the legacy of slavery still affected Black Americans today. And on issues of criminal justice and policing in particular, white and Black Democrats held fairly similar views. Surveys since Floyd’s death1 have shown even greater wokeness among white Democrats (and Americans more broadly). White Democrats now view the police even less favorably and the Black Lives Matter movement more favorably, and they are also more likely to agree that Black people face “a great deal” or “a lot” of discrimination in America today.2
What we don’t know yet is whether white Democrats have moved significantly on racial issues beyond policing and discrimination in general — issues that deal with more material concerns, such as school integration and wealth redistribution. Most polling since Floyd’s death has focused on policing, Confederate monuments and other topics that have been in the news.
If you think this election will be different…then I feel you will be sorely disappointed.
Most white Dems and even a few of the Black elected officials owe too much to the wealthy elite for any true program to fight racism to become anything but a fanciful thought.
