One of the oddities of this political age is that probably the last place you can actually hear unvarnished, non-politically-correct speech is on radio programming aimed at at a younger black audience. The dynamic is interesting because a talk show host on one of these shows can say most anything and no one will challenge him. If he says something untoward about a conservative or a Republican the liberal scolds cheer him on. If he attacks the liberal orthodoxy those same scolds are too busy self-cannibalizing over their own white privilege and latent racism to say anything. One of the shows that has given me the most personal amusement is one called “The Breakfast Club.”
We’ve covered them in the past when they weighed in on Bruce Jenner’s sudden realization that he had a penis that he didn’t know what to do with. The conclusion was that Jenner was rebuking God. Solid orthodox theology that isn’t heard enough in our pulpits and therefore a complete surprise when it appears on hiphop/rap talk show.
The guest was a rapper named Nick Cannon.
The subject of the election comes up and Cannon reveals that he didn’t support either candidate and certainly didn’t think Hillary Clinton was better for the black community:
Hillary was — think about all of the things they did with Planned Parenthood and all of that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification — it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years. This system is not built for us.
If a conservative entertainer had voiced the same opinion he would have been savaged and possibly run out of the industry.
Cannon doesn’t further elaborate but whether speaking from familiarity with the subject of from gut instinct, but he hit the nail on the head. Planned Parenthood has been the prime mover behind a virtual genocide of black babies. This is not an accident. Planned Parenthood focuses on minority neighborhoods and their marketing program has been remarkably successful. For every 1000 live births in the black community there are 435 abortions. The abortion rate among black women is nearly four times that of non-Hispanic whites. Indeed, eliminating the black population was a feature, not a bug, of Margaret Sanger’s vision.
One of the lessons that should have been learned this last election is that a message that appeals to Reagan Democrats also has legs within the black community. Not only did Trump get a greater share of black votes than did Mitt Romney, black voters, in large numbers, sat on their hands and refused to vote for Hillary Clinton. The corollary to that observation is that the Democrat strategy of view America as a competing collection of whiny special interest groups has definite limits. Perhaps the same big brain thinkers in the GOP that are perpetually trying to reach working class black voters should back away from their vanilla latte and think about making abortion an issue upon which we can find common ground.
