I need points to use to counter this.
It's being shared by Christian friends.
Blacks generally have a hard time understanding freedom from government coercion. These days, they aren’t alone.
Tribal pressure. Just like Jews vote democrat even though it’s against their interest.
Along with that, we can also ask:
Why do people take drugs?
Why do people major in worthless studies?
Why did people buy Yugos?
Why do people watch CNN?
Why do people believe journalists?
I’m thinkin’ because they are way too many fries short of a happy meal.
Staying on the plantation ,that’s all.
It is a carry over trait from slave era. Slaves got paid nothing for work, so they developed a habit of doing as little as possible. Descendants of slaves prefer checks for doing nothing. Democrats are more generous to people who do not work.
“Liberation theology.” It’s very attractive to many African-Americans.
Define “Christian”. ;)
The Left always says it wants to have an honest conversation about race. Of course, what THEY mean is that they want to yell at white people and insult them.
If we REALLY talked about race and slavery, it would get pretty deep.
Some slaves were afraid to be freed — Massa always fed them and gave them housing. They were valuable property and Massa actually tried to take care of them to some degree. Who would take care of them if they were freed?
Look at the inner city underclass today. They are given food, housing, health care. Massa is still taking care of these people.
Freedom is hard and not everyone wants it. If a political party says it will take care of your every need, some people will find that attractive.
The definitive answer:
The same reason over 75% of black children are born into fatherless homes. Democrats and government in place of the man in the family.
Ask them how that fits with their so-called Christian philosophy. Jesus said “render unto Caesar that which is Cesar’s.” He did not say “replace the father in your family with Caesar.”
In general I don’t see “Black Christians” as a religious affiliation as much as a political/social construct; after JFK was grilled about the potential influence of his Catholicism on his political policies, we watched TWO black ministers (Jack$on, $harpton) campaign for president with no such questions.
I see little evidence of Christianity in the larger American culture today (with rampant adultery and divorce, for examples); I see even less in “black Christians” (adding in the out-of-wedlock births and murder rate).
Whites actually trying to live their lives according to Christian principles are a small sub-set of the population; they are an even smaller subset in the black population.
Maybe it’s partly where they live? I think 70% of black people live in urban areas. Do blacks that live in urban areas vote differently than blacks that live in rural areas? I’ve wondered the same thing about Jews.
>>Some slaves were afraid to be freed Massa always fed them and gave them housing.<<
If blacks do not think the are on the leftist plantation still, ask them to wear a MAGA hat and/or a “ALL Lives matter” in ANY democrat city. They will see when it comes to freedom they keep themselves in chains.
I can wear a “joe and the ho” (with their real names) shirt, hat and everything with zero fear of reprisal here in darkest red North Texas. Of course I would have to scrub with lye soap and gasoline until my 2 outer epidermis layers were removed, but I could do it.
Because, unlike them, I am free. Not because of my color but because of my philosophy.
I’m more interested in countering his arguments for why Whites vote republucan.
He basically says it had to do with Strom Thurman changing parties and Nixon’s southern strategy.
He never brought up Eisenhower, and I think a lot of people switched with Eisenhower.
Orthodox Jews vote conservative. Earthly Jews vote liberal. It’s why Wilhelm and Cuomo is punishing them in New York City.
1. Miseducation from the get go...as in FDR, perhaps Wilson, until today...a crack has fortunately formed.
2. Blacks have more groups, societies, clubs, fraternities, sororities, as they are more group than individual...thus, ‘permission ‘ to think differently can get you ostracized, including pressure in families...do you see white family reunions? Not as much as black ones...that is an anecdote. Hope my points are clear.
I have lived it as the only white in the room for 26 yes with my black wife...upper class blacks. I talk sparingly, ask for wisdom beforehand. CnN, MSNBC, NPR are gospel.
I was more interested in how to counter his arguments for white Christians voting republican. He uses arguments that make it sound like Whites are racists and that’s why they vote republucan.
The black church went secular after the civil rights movement. It attached itself to the democratic party, which meant accepting the entire agenda of that party — abortion, welfare, etc. It has never gotten back to its roots enough to renounce that party.
