Former NAACP President Castigates Democrats on Poverty Issues

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 4, 2015

Kweisi MfumeMSNBC commentator Chris Hayes interviewed former Maryland Congressman and past NAACP president Kweisi Mfume concerning recent events in Baltimore, Maryland.  As an unapologetic Leftist, Hayes proffered questions to Mfume in an veiled attempt to obtain the canned Progressive responses.  However, Mfume response also strongly condemned the Democrat Party for its past related inactions:

“I see where Harry Reid today, said he was directing his staff to come back with some ideas about what to do with this issue.  I’m trying to figure out where was that kind of thinking back, 7 years ago, when my party, the Democratic Party, controlled the White House, controlled the Senate, controlled the House of Representatives, and you could have gotten anything through because you controlled the vote. So Harry Reid?  Please, give me a break.”

While this Blog may differ as to problem resolution, we agree with Mfume as to a major source of the problem, poverty.  At the same time, it needs to be asked why with trillions spent on anti-poverty programs in the United States since the mid-1960s are the inner cities in the sad state they are today.  Also, since Democrats control nearly all major large cities’ governments, it is reasonable to ask why their policies have not improved the poverty situation in the cities.  Finally, it is reasonable to conclude that should we continue following the same failed policies, we should expect the same failed results.
