Recently I participated on a panel on the show Conscious Mindset at KPFT 90.1 FM Houston. The discussion got a little heated when a black Republican attempted to defend Trump and disparaged black people supporting the Democratic Party. This discussion after the program shows his delusion.

While on the panel, I made it clear how flawed Republicanism is. But the black Trump loyalist continued to tout talking points that have been proven false.

"I don't understand why people are upset," the black Republican said. "We got more jobs. We got tax cuts. We got jobs coming back. But yet people are upset. What are you upset about. Immigration? What's wrong with making America first. That's one of the first laws of nature. Nature is self-preservation. I have to look out for me before I can look out for anybody else. And so these things that are changing and he's changing things up at the United Nations is where we've been responsible for taking care of all these. But all those things are changing and putting us first."

He subsequently said black people were returning to the plantation for voting and supporting the Democratic Party. I tried to remind him that the old Democrats and Dixiecrats now populate the Republican Party and that their values have reversed. It is hard to dislodge many of these Trump supporters from their willful ignorance but I continue to try.

We continued the discussion after the show. I think even as the black Trump loyalist touted Trump and Reagan about tax cuts and deregulation, he softened up and was receptive to dialogue. It is not about changing the individual. Many times I challenge die-hard ideologues not only to change their minds but to have others listen to the conversation and either change their opinions or at least become more informed.

The black republican you speak about is still caught in The Matrix - You are correct about the talking points - another ridiculous perspective endlessly typical of almost every US political party. What have the parties accomplished in the past 70 years?

What are their members up to now? Auditioning?

People are waking up to the shenanigans of the fake left/right divide. My enemy is still my enemy even as he destroys my enemies, however, I would prefer that he continue making life difficult for my enemies because we are not awake enough to do it for ourselves...we can't even get our domestic attacks coordinated let alone unbristle our prickly foreign policy. God knows the people have a multitude of enemies...who else could have laid us so low except the ruling elites? Is it us or they who have bought and now own every aspect of our political instructure - the legislatures, the courts, military, media, global finance and doped up the dupes??
