    I often wonder what politics is going to look like after the total collapse of the Republican Party and the total dominance of the Democratic Party. This is the first example of what the future is going to look like.

    Black politicians have understood for the last few decades that they had a free hand and could do and say anything. The liberal white elites in the Democratic Party have never questioned the politics or positions of black (Democratic) politicians because the liberal whites were so dependent on the black vote to offset the white social conservatives voters on the Republican Party.

    Now, the liberal white elites are not so dependent on the black vote and they know that blacks are never going to leave the Democratic Party. Thus, the liberal white elites can start enforcing political litmus tests on black politicians like they alway have on white politicians.

    What Black-Americans need to start understanding is that they are below homosexuals in the political correctness pecking order where in the past, blacks were at the top of the pecking order.
