Blacks feel taken for granted by the Democratic Party

From a survey by Brilliant Corners Research as reported by NNPA

— A large majority of African American voters (63 percent) feel taken for granted by the Democratic Party. This startling majority represents a growing problem among one of the most critical components of Democrats winning coalition.

— African-American voters broadly support more drastic tactics to obstruct the Trump administration, including not confirming President Trump’s appointees (53 percent), sit-ins and other acts of civil disobedience.

— The list of important priorities for African American voters includes: Protecting Social Security (88 percent, very important), keeping us safe from terrorists (78 percent), criminal justice reform (74 percent), reforming the election process so the candidate with the majority wins (72 percent), investigating Russian interference with the 2016 election (72 percent), protecting Obama’s legacy (71 percent), banning assault weapons (61 percent), and blocking Sessions (60 percent) are the top legislative priorities for African Americans nationally.

We don't really have a two party system. We have a one party, the capitalist party, system. The Repugs and the Demos are merely two sides of the same coin.

It is not just blacks who feel that the way. The left feels the same way. That is why I gave up on the Democratic party.
