Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, spoke with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, who asked her why should blacks, who vote overwhelmingly for Democrats, rethink that loyalty.
Blacks have been loyal to the Democratic party “because they’ve bought this idea of an activist government, but something very exciting is happening now with Trump in office.” The president’s administration is focusing on urban communities and initiatives. But something else exciting is happening. Black millennials don’t buy the “racism-behind-every-rock narrative” and “they’re individualists.”
Liberals won’t like the comparison Star made between the Congressional Black Caucus and people who were part of a historical American institution. Watch the brief clip for more and tell us if you agree.
