Thomas Sowell: When Reagan reached for black vote he went to Urban League; Priebus joke going to NAACP

Original Story – Thomas Sowell to Newsmax: GOP Outreach to Blacks ‘Most Unpromising’

Conservative Thomas Sowell

Over the last week, I my mind and spirit has been opened up to Economist and Conservative author Thomas Sowell. I am so way late that I am enjoying catching up. My heart is eating up his passion and directness on economy as well as racial issues that he has spoken on during his career.

You wonder why black and white liberal leaders do not attack Thomas Sowell for his knowledge and historical facts/data. There can only be one reason. That would force a dialogue to where Sowell would mow down each and every opponent creating a divide within the Democratic philosophy of government dependency. Oh yes, I can see it as plain as day. Young black liberal voters sitting quietly watching the “Just Us” brothers Al Sharpnuts and Jesse Jackass literally be destroyed by a more intelligent human figure such as Sowell.

In his latest article, it really hits home once again and it speaks to a few tweets I sent out yesterday to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

“When [Reagan] set out to win the black vote, he went to the Urban League,” Sowell said. “He was going to these black establishments as his entrée into the black public, as if the establishment owned the rest of the black people.”  

Now, Sowell says, in plans unveiled recently by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, “they’re talking about going to the NAACP, which is the next thing to a fully owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party — and that’s how they’re going to try to reach blacks.

“All they’re doing is increasing the sense that those are the blacks who matter and that they are the entryway for the rest of the black people,” he says. – Thomas Sowell


The NAACP has been lockstep with the Democratic party for years. They are irrelevant in today’s world. They pick and choose what they are going to defend or protest and 9/10 times it’s won’t be for equal rights. They together with Sharpnuts and Messy Jackson protest for the glamour instead of its original charter of defending civil liberties for all.

Sowell’s article continues:

In this vein, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission also should be abolished, he adds.

“There are groups like the NAACP, La Raza, various lawyers who specialize in bringing civil rights cases. You can also include a government agency like the EEOC,” Sowell says. “If you set up an agency to look for discrimination, they’ve got to fight discrimination in order to justify their existence. And if there’s not enough by the existing definition, they’ve got to continually broaden the definition if they want their jobs.”

Sowell proudly has come to the conclusion that the government has created crutches and an excuse program for minorities over the years and Republicans haven’t lived up to their commitment to expose and show a better way.

Reince PriebusOnce again Priebus is not listening to the right people. I am sure he “thinks” what he is doing is right but someone needs to tell him bypass the NAACP and go to the communities. This is not a game anymore. There are lives at stake. Minorities are actually looking for a better way but feel there is none. Until the RNC starts utilizing the minority voice in their own part and making it a majority…….Priebus will continue to falter and fail.
