Star Parker recently appeared in a Heritage Foundation video and talked about conservatives reaching out to black voters and other topics. The interview begins around 40 seconds in.
One of the reasons why it’s hard for conservatives to reach black voters is because “blacks have wallowed in liberalism for far too long,” Star said. “Republicans have allowed…this war on poverty to go on for the last 50 years…So now we’re three generations later, you see the dismantling of family life that Daniel Patrick Moynihan talked about when they started the social engineering in the 60s.”
We need a new approach to fix what has broken down, Star added. With the GOP in the White House and the majority in Congress, we have a window of opportunity to make lives better in the inner cities.
“The president himself has said he wants it done.”
We need to get the money out of Washington in to block grants for states so they can be more responsive to the people in the harder hit communities.
Watch the brief clip to hear what Star said about Rep. Paul Ryan, tax relief, small businesses, Ben Carson, and more.
