Why Dems and NAACP Oppose Education for Blacks

The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. By “the revolution,” they mean absolute power for the Left. Democrat politicians posture theatrically as the promoters of black interests, with a presidential candidate even promising $100 billion for explicitly black housing assistance at everyone else’s expense. But Democrats are not really interested in promoting the advancement of blacks. The same goes for the NAACP, even if that stands for National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Otherwise, these leftist institutions would not oppose school choice.

Via the Washington Examiner:

Our current public education system fails too many minority children, leaving them trapped in failing public schools… But bizarrely, the national leadership of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, arguably the country’s most preeminent African American advocacy group, has called for an outright ban on charter schools. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has rolled out an education plan that would severely restrict charter schools as well.

Many blacks realize that if they want to work their way up rather than begging for crumbs from socialist demagogues, they need access to better schools.

Nearly 7 in 10 African Americans polled say they support school choice. It’s easy to see why, with countless studies showing that educational freedom improves outcomes for nonwhite students. …

And research also shows that school choice programs reduce crime and teen pregnancy, and increase graduation rates and civic engagement.

These and drug use are the true scourges of the black community, not microaggressions and imaginary discrimination.

However, charter schools lessen the power of the big teachers’ unions, another leftist institution and a very important one for inculcating moonbat ideology. Also, keeping blacks ignorant, helpless, and poor maintains a voting block that Democrats can count on with 90% reliability. So school choice must be crushed.

In the 19th century, Democrats didn’t want blacks to learn how to read. Things have changed less than some think.
