#103 - If you ain't Democrat then, you ain't black!

I had the most intriguing conversation with Derrick Wilburn today on race and politics. It was poignant, humorous and paradigm-shifting in a number of ways. You have to tune in to get the full effect but, here are some of the talking points discussed. 

Talking points: 

  • If you ain't Democrat then, you ain't black
  • Eggs at Elder, racism from the left
  • Liberals belong to the "church of what I believe"
  • If aliens watched TV, they would think the USA was 80% people of color
  • I am not oppressed, contrary to what CRT says
  • A mantra all patriots should teach their children
  • The fundamental difference between left and right
  • A two-parent home is a privilege
  • Why the left won't let racism die. (Spoiler alert: Its all about money and power)
  • If the system is racist, who runs it? 
  • What it means to be called an "Uncle Tom" and why its not a bad thing.
  • Annnd... "The 20 Negro Rule..." Wow!

His organization’s and personal mission are to bridge the gap that exists between conservative political causes, parties, candidates and officer-holders and ethnic-minorities in the USA.

An accomplished motivational speaker, Derrick delivers powerful messages to political and community action groups across the nation.
