Identity Politics Favors LGBTQ Activism Over Black Progress

By: David Almasi

On the left, the intersectional pecking order is marginalizing the black community.

In a panel discussion on the Fox News Channel program “The Ingraham Angle,” Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper said the leftist establishment has chosen to embrace the “new idea” of LGBTQ activism over the concerns of black Americans. As a result, he remarked:

Blacks – you just get to the back of the political bus.

Could this lead to a political realignment? After all, blacks have been doing quite well under the regulatory and economic policies of the Trump Administration.

Horace, the author of the upcoming book How Trump is Making Black America Great Again: The Untold Story of Black Advancement in the Era of Trump, remarked that factors such as lower black unemployment and higher black incomes are becoming more noticeable:

There are a lot of Americans who happen to be black who are going to look around and say – hey, there’s more money in my checking account… $5,000, on average.

As the holiday season begins, this newfound prosperity and opportunity will be more evident. These advances, along with the left’s increasing disinterest in the black community outside of a tool to provoke racial strife, will undoubtedly begin to have an impact on the political landscape. Horace noted:

There are more black Americans who are going to go home for Thanksgiving than we have seen in the last 13 years. There are more black Americans who are gonna have pickup trucks than we have seen in the last ten years.

The point about it is this… The other side should be trying to come up with a good record, but instead they’re stuck on identity politics.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
