This is a story that you can feel good about if you are part of the Republican Party.
Ed Ford Jr and Tyrell Brown served as President and Vice-President during their senior year in high school and have been friends since middle school. Their convictions of republican principles ring deep which is why they both ran and won their political races in the liberal state of Connecticut.
The Republican Party has a rich heritage when it came to helping to free the slaves from decades of Democrat-led plantations and auction blocks. Liberals have worked over the years to hide their sinful past by rewriting history and changing the narrative through our educational system which includes television shows and movies.
These two young gentleman from the north are unique and something about the platform of the Republican Party resonated with their core and convictions as it has done to many black Americans over the past few years that started an exodus from the Democrat party. Nobody can take that away from them not even Nancy Pelosi or Barack Obama.
Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown have been best friends since middle school. They each developed a passion for politics at a young age. During their senior year in high school they served as president and Vice President of student government.
“I met him playing two hand touch football,” said Ford, referring to Brown.
Now, they’re 20-year-old juniors in college, who possibly just made history following Tuesday’s election. They are believed to be the youngest black Republicans to ever win political office in deep blue Connecticut.
Ford won a seat on the Middletown school board, the same district where he attended public schools. “When the results came in I was absolutely euphoric,” he remarked.
Brown was elected to the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission. “When I found out I won I said okay, time to get to work.”
The media hasn’t covered this because they are still in the history rewriting phase. If the black community would learn to research both sides to make an informed decision, I believe things would be so different. The party platforms are night and day as the Republican platform reminds what we were taught as kids.
What gives me hope are these two young men. The Republican leadership is bad, really bad. They do not fight back against Democrats as they compromise too quickly giving up their advantage to be loved by the media. As for me, I want to share this everywhere because it’s a great story.
This news doesn’t happen regularly within the black community, but because it did, it definitely can happen more often. I am very proud of these two, and I admire their fight and spirit. I pray they stay true to their convictions and do not get caught up on Twitter or Facebook groups. That can be deadly.
