Jack Brewer wrote about the black vote in 2020 in this op-ed, noting that “I’m one of those who have become full-fledged supporters of the president and want to see him reelected. Others, like Prince, haven’t endorsed Trump for reelection at this point, but support some of the president’s policies and appreciate what he has done.”

That’s where Brewer starts explaining why he supports President Trump:

We also recognized that while Democrats make big promises to black voters in the run-up to every election, too often those promises are forgotten once the polls close. In part that’s because Democrats take our votes for granted; they just assume the vast majority of black people will vote Democratic. If more of us voted for Republicans, candidates in both parties would do more to compete for our votes.

What good are big promises that aren’t kept? Back in the mid-90s, a men’s religious movement got started by then-University of Colorado Football Coach Bill McCartney. The movement was called Promise Keepers. Its first study book was titled “The Awesome Power of a Promise Kept”. The point behind the book is that keeping promises changes lives.

From another perspective, Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America gained popularity by keeping these promises made to the American people:

On the first day of their majority in the House, the Republicans promised to bring up for vote, eight major reforms:

  1. require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress;
  2. select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
  3. cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
  4. limit the terms of all committee chairs;
    ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
  5. require committee meetings to be open to the public;
  6. require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
  7. guarantee an honest accounting of the Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.

In 1994, Republicans took back the House for the first time in 40years. First, Newt’s Republicans stood for something appealing. Next, Newt’s Republicans kept their promises. Third and perhaps most importantly, Newt’s Republicans promised to not exempt themselves from the laws they passed. Period.

Since he took office, President Trump has worked hard to improve the lives of African-Americans. Democrats can complain all they want but that doesn’t change reality. President Trump has put in place policies that are putting smiles on people’s faces. African-Americans have the lowest unemployment rate in their history. Opportunity Zones have brought back wealth into poor neighborhoods, thereby creating middle class employment opportunities.

President Trump is keeping promises and making life better for African-Americans. It isn’t lost on people when comparing Trump’s pro-African-American accomplishments with the Democrats unfulfilled promises. That’s why President Trump is making significant inroads into the African-American community.

One Response to “Jack Brewer & the black vote”

  • Dan says:

    Dear Mr. Brewer:

    Please run for Congress as a Senator or Representative. I worked in inner city schools in the 1980s and 1990s and agree with your assessment of the African American situation.

    By the way, OPRAH said during the Obama Whitehouse years that I needed to die because I am a white male over 55 years of age and probably racially prejudiced; the same way they unfairly accuse POTUS #45 but I still say; “Please run for public office as a U.S. Senator or Congressman” because you will be great at it, in my opinion.

    Good luck, God bless and have a blessed and prosperous 2020!

    Sincerely,
