Why Blacks, Latinos, and Gays Should be Conservatives
As those of you who read this blog already know I am not just a conservative but I’m a gay black conservative. I’ve written another article about it if you want to read about why I voted for President Trump. The purpose of this article is to explain why my fellow peoples of color and sexual orientations should join me.
Blacks are poor
Blacks are poor. Despite decades of liberal policies 28% of blacks live below the poverty line compared to only 10% of whites, 12% of Asians, and 25% of Hispanics. The black unemployment rate remains near double that of whites. This according to business insider. The next question is is that the liberals fault and if so how? For this we will look at California the nation’s liberal Vatican. Conservatives essentially have no voice in this state and haven’t for the last 20-30 years. Well in the Golden State the white median household net worth is $240,000 while it is just 34k for Blacks. Educationally the achievement gap for Blacks verses other groups is not only astonishingly bad just sad. The LA Times reports the English achievement gap between Blacks and Asians was 44% and in math it was a whopping 53%. I found the English achievement gap the most disturbing since most Asians are descendants of 1st or 2nd generation immigrants from English speaking countries.
Latinos are poor
Latinos I’m afraid you guys aren’t doing much better. 60.7% of Latino household virtually no savings and are considered liquid asset poor. That’s compared to only 28% of white households. Nearly 30% of Latino households live in poverty. Latino test scores in math declined nearly 50% and also suffer from high educational achievement gaps. Oh and 25% of Latinos live in poverty nation wide.
Gays are poor
Despite the media trope as portraying gay men as these rich titans the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. The liberal think tank The Williams Institute Institute report California-LGBT Divide stated that even though the left coast has the greatest protections for LGB peoples 30% have an income of below 24k per year. In the south where acceptance is the least it’s 33% this despite a difference of 13 point gap in the Law and Social climate index between the two regions. Why don’t the gaps correlate more closely? Maybe because economic freedom is more effective at reducing poverty than more laws and regulations?
Black and Latino gays are really f*cking poor
In California 19% of white LGBT individuals report an income of less than 24k while 30%-36% of Black and Latino LGBTs do.
“Government isn’t the solution to our problem government is the problem”
All this despite the fact that California has some of nation’s highest tax rates and highest government spending growth in the nation. The liberal Huffington Post released a report called The Worst States for Black Americans. Almost all of them were blue or purple states. Contrast that to what Forbes Magazine found: Today, [The South] has emerged, in many ways, as the new promised land for African-Americans.” The best states for Blacks are conservative run states. When the free market is allowed to flourish the rising tide lift all boats regardless of race or sexual preference. Liberals have tried and failed to solve the poverty crises amongst minorities for years through victim hood and larger and larger government. It failed. Black conservatives are right, Latino conservatives are right, gay conservatives are right. Liberals are wrong.
