We are not stuck in some class or caste system in America. Here, in our nation, the indomitable human spirit wants freedom and liberty to determine its own outcomes.
“My ideological mentor, Booker T. Washington, embraced a philosophy of economic empowerment through education, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance, regardless of the circumstances facing Blacks. Indeed, that is the message of individual empowerment that reflects the ideal of America being a land of opportunity. It is not an “exception” it is a fundamental principle of this country, and this is why so many seek our shores,” states ACRU Executive Director Allen West in his most recent TownHall OpEd.
The Biden administration is doubling down on the color-conscious policies that were the hallmark of its first year in office through a series of “action plans,” which it released through every executive bureaucracy last month. Only this time, in a bid to avert legal reversals, the administration is concealing its racial spoils system under bureaucratic euphemisms.
During the 2020 election cycle, Joe Biden made the abhorrent claim that being Black was contingent upon voting for him. He infamously asserted, "if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
