(Tea Party PAC) – The Trump administration has been better for the black community than any presidential administration in decades, but the Democrats don’t want you to know that.
They don’t want you to know that the organizations they support that call for the elimination of the family unit promote policies that weaken, not strengthen, the black community.
They don’t want you to know that Democrat-run cities in which they’re calling for the police to be defunded see devastating crime and homicide rates, often with black and minority victims.
The narratives on race that the Democrats have far too long employed to win over black voters are failing.
And no one knows this than Larry Elder, a longtime champion of strong black families.
Elder just got the perfect appointment in the Trump administration that will only serve to bolster Trump’s historic justice reform efforts, record-low black unemployment, and support among black Americans.
BizPac Review reports:
Before being flown off to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday, the president announced his intention to appoint Elder to serve as a member of the Commission on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys.
Designed by Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Frederica Wilson, and formally instituted by the president in August, the commission’s mission is “to address the racial inequities that continue to plague our nation,” according to a statement from Rubio.
What makes Elder a particularly optimal choice for serving on the commission is his staunch belief that minorities aren’t victims of systemic racism, structural racism, institutional racism and so-called “pernicious racism.”
He believes that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed, but that some Americans never realize this opportunity because of their upbringing.

Elder underscored his vision for black Americans in a statement following the announcement.
“That so many children, particularly black children, are raised without fathers in the home, is our nation’s most pressing domestic problem,” he said.
“Former President Barack Obama said that a child raised without a father in the home is five times more likely to be poor and commit crime, nine times more likely to drop out of school and twenty times more likely to end up in jail. We need to ask ourselves if we are incentivizing women to marry the government and if we are incentivizing men to abandon their financial and moral responsibility.”
Elder is pointing to one of the few things the former president said, but was never a supporter of the nation’s first black president and regularly challenged his views on race.
He has always taken aim at Obama’s claim that “racism is in America’s DNA” and that all black Americans are subject to inherent “institutional racism.”
It is this victimhood mentality that’s led Elder to believe that Obama’s presidency was worse for black Americans.
“Barack Obama has made things worse! He’s given black people the impression that the police are out to get them. … Race relations fell precipitously during the second half of the second term of his presidency,” he said during a recent interview.
“[T]he election of a black person did not bring about the expected ‘hope and change.’ In fact, the percentage of blacks living in poverty increased under Obama,” Elder said back in 2017.
“In 1992, the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics examined the 75 most populous counties. Turns out the jury is less likely to convict a black defendant of a felony than a white defendant. The study found that ‘in 12 of the 14 types of crimes (felonies including murder, rape and other serious crimes) for which data was collected, the conviction rate for blacks is lower than that of whites,’” the column continued.
“Similarly, in 2013, the National Institute of Justice, the research and evaluation agency of the DOJ, published their study of whether the police, as a result of racial bias, stop blacks more than other drivers. The conclusion? Any racial disparity in traffic stops is due to ‘differences in offending” in addition to “differences in exposure to the police” and “differences in driving patterns.’”
