In this installment of our weekly Sunday Six conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative review six policies and narratives supported by Democrats that do irreparably more harm than good for blacks, even though the latter still vote 90-95% consistently for the former.
#6: Lack of School Choice
Parker: The entire Obama family summarizes the power of school choice for individual families and the sheer hypocrisy of Democrats’ personal actions versus public policies. Barack Obama lived with his grandmother in Hawaii to attend the best private high school. Michelle Obama detailed her long bus rides to escape the hellscape of urban schools. Their daughters attended both private Chicago schools and later the famous Sidwell Friends while living in Washington, D.C.
It isn’t easy to understate how such enormous educational experiences better prepared the elder Obamas for their life of influence, power, and wealth. This is true of both the learning opportunities and the subsequent connections made while at prestigious institutions. The daughters have likewise grown up with a life of privilege known only to a select few—shame on them for denying access to better schooling for the common folk.
