When questioned on whether or not it was time for black people to start their own political party, Maxine Waters refused to rule it out, saying that maybe when black people are more politically engaged, “when we’re strong enough”.
This is ridiculous. Just for a moment picture a white person saying the opposite thing…Or even the same thing! It will, unfortunately, never be classed as racist and divisive, because a new interpretation of what racism requires is sweeping the US…It can only be racist if it goes hand in hand with power. This is the reason many are saying that black folk “can’t be racist” because they don’t have the power.
So if we follow this “logic”, is Maxine saying that when black folk “are strong enough” (when they have no power disadvantage) then they should start a party. Wouldn’t this, even by Liberal Leftist definition, then be considered a Racist party?
Why can’t elected politicians stop being divisive and spouting ugly sentiments? Waters is elected to represent California. Not White California, not Black California. Stop spouting your divisive hate and start doing your job!
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters wouldn’t rule out the concept of an all-black political party when asked about it on Monday.
Waters joined “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Monday morning and was asked if it was time for black people to form their own political party.
“No, not at this point,” Waters said. “You have to show that you’re willing and you’re able to put the numbers together and exercise your influence.”
“We still are not voting our influence yet,” she continued. “What we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because that’s where most of us are.”
Waters then suggested that when black people are “strong enough” they may branch out into their own party.
After black people fully participate in politics, she said, “then you can raise that kind of question–whether we are strong enough to talk about organizing another party.”
