Ken Blackwell: This is What Will Help ‘Racial Reconciliation’

During an appearance on MSNBC, Ken Blackwell, former Trump transition team member, defended the president after the two other panelists called him a racist and a bigot.

According to one of the guests, President Donald Trump is a racist because he wants to stop Muslim terrorists from blowing up Americans on their own soil and prevent foreigners from flooding across the porous southern border.

In response, Blackwell noted that the former president, biracial, failed to move the country beyond race, and he used race to divide and conquer. “It worked for him.” Blackwell added that a growing economy puts us in a better position to tackle racial problems. That’s what we should focus on now.

Unmoved, the other guest said the president campaigned as a bigot and governs as a bigot.

  1. Well said, sharing thus on my blog.

  2. “Racist, bigot.” This is the Left’s fall back position, whenever they have NO answers or policies to offer. Old, lazy, rhetoric, continuing to blame everyone, for whatever perceived ills, except themselves. Even the Israelites were only in the desert for forty years. It is now over fifty+ years just since LBJ’s “New Society,” that, according to him, “I’ll have these N****** voting Democrat for the next 200 years. When will that light bulb go off in the minds of Blacks that their salvation lies NOT in the arms of government? We/they have tried a Black president, that saw “race” in almost every event, and, like so many other “race baiters” in the black community, simply added to the racial division in the country – yet, no one dared call him a “racist/bigot!” Matthew 7:5 “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Somewhat like “physician heal thyself,” the black community has to look to themselves for “healing,” and stop using the “blame game” as some excuse for their continued decline.
