On MSNBC yesterday, a PAC chairman let the cat out of the bag.
PowerPac+ chairman Steve Phillips said that there’s an “intentionality” to black poverty during a discussion about the oh-so-important subject of income inequality.
“Black people are not poor by accident or by some kind of quirk of history. We were placed in slavery, developed the wealth of this country, denied access to the GI bill benefits, so there’s an intentionality to the current black situation. We have to be equally intentional to address it” he said.
He’s right. African-Americans are kept in poverty so that they rely on the largesse of the government for their sustenance. Democrats routinely campaign for expanding the welfare state as a way to court their votes.
It’s not a coincidence.
But it’s very sad.
