What is Blexit?
It’s the exodus of black Americans from the Democratic Party.
Just a few short years ago, black Americans who identified themselves as conservatives and Republicans were called all kinds of names, especially Uncle Toms.
When Dr. Ben Carson declared his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination, he was mocked and ridiculed by many black Americans.
However, that is all changing in today’s America as more and more black Americans are leaving the Democratic Party and identifying themselves as conservatives.
But, what is the cause of the mass exodus of black Americans from the Democratic Party, now being labeled as Blexit?
It was a two-minute satirical stab at the social exiling that many Americans face when they announce their conservatism to friends and family.
Soon thereafter I would discover that for black Americans, the punishment that awaits is far worse than any social exile: it is a full-court social lynching.
Search the name of any prominent black conservative and peruse the words written by liberal journalists:
I have been branded a self-hating black, Nazi-sympathizer and rather astonishingly — a white supremacist…
Perhaps some black Americans are leaving the Democratic Party is because after 8 years of broken promises by Obama, many found themselves worse off than before Obama took office.
Then, under less than 2 years under Donald Trump, more black Americans are working than they have in decades.
Additionally, thanks to Trump and Republicans, they are taking home more of their paychecks than every before.
Perhaps more black Americans are also realizing that Democrats want to take it all away from them.
