LOUIS ‘HOP’ KENDRICK

Yes it is election time once again. The pre election polls across America overwhelmingly predict who Black persons will vote for. The polls generally are accurate, because there are a classification of Black persons whose total function is to deliver the Black vote by any method they can.

It took a period of time before I was willing to concede that slavery mentality had affected a tremendous number. There are a number of Blacks who acted out the role of the House Ni——r. They had a job and they would do whatever Old Massa told them. They would oppose any Black man or woman and their reasoning generally was I want to keep my job. Some other reasons were if I am a good dependable person I might be able to get a job for a member of my family. Those Blacks that were elected overwhelmingly by Black voters even today used the old worn out excuse that they must do what the party chairperson or Allegheny County Executive says, never what we who elected them needed.

If a Black Republican seeks a political office no matter how qualified they may be these persons maintain that under no circumstances should we ever support them, a White bigoted Democrat is better. If a qualified Democrat Black woman or man a decides to seek a political office with out the okay of the party these same Blacks come to the community and state these persons are not supported by the party bosses, so we must vote against them.
