Elbert Guillory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Party affiliation[edit source]
Up until 2007, Guillory had been a registered Republican and served on the Louisiana Republican state central committee. He became a Democrat in 2007 when he first ran for the state House in the heavily Democratic District 40. During the 2013 regular session of the Louisiana Legislature, Guillory switched his party affiliation back to Republican.
Officially, Guillory's party-switch occurred on May 31, when he was presented with the Frederick Douglass Award from the @Large Society. Earlier, State Senator Karen Carter Peterson, the chair of the Louisiana Democratic Party, had indicated racism to be the reason why the Louisiana Legislature and Governor Bobby Jindal opposed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, enacted in 2010 by Congress and signed into law by President Barack H. Obama. Jindal and the legislature had declined to implement in Louisiana that part of the federal act offering the states federal funding for Medicaid. Guillory took exception to Carter Peterson's characterization of the opponents of Obamacare, but his intent to switch parties had already been under consideration.
Before Guillory's switch, the last Republican of African-American ethnicity in the Louisiana Senate had served during the Reconstruction era. In accepting the award, Guillory compared himself to 19th-century abolitionist Frederick Douglass, a Republican who had supported Abraham Lincoln.
Guillory has a conservative political philosophy already indicated, according to Daily Kos, in his pre-2007 membership in the Republican Party. Guillory explained his party switch in a 4-minute 17-second video widely circulated in state and national media outlets, including the radio programs of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Moon Griffon as well as by Neil Cavuto on Fox News. The video was viewed on You Tube within the first three days by nearly 500,000. Filmed in the rear of the Senate chamber, the video calls the Democrats "the party of Jim Crow" and depict "the party of freedom and progress" as the Republicans. Guillory called his defection "not only right for me, but for all of my brothers and sisters in the black community" as he left the Democrats for the Republicans.
Louisiana is probably one of those red states, where exists some racist white Democrats, who were too lazy to switch parties.
Guillory is yet another opportunist and Stephin Fetchit Negro who believes that the GOP is the same GOP from Lincoln's time.

liberalism is of course destroying blacks in a much more literal way, thru abortion.
blacks are 12% of the US population and falling. they are flushing themselves out of existence with the shredded corpses of their children.

Blacks have embraced the liberal party since the start of the 20 century. And for the life of me, I can't understand why. Southern democrats have made a concerted effort to "keep blacks in their place" since the end of the civil war and when they became competitors in business, money, and power. The southern dems didn't want to forfeit their little kingdoms so they invented things like Jim Crow Laws, separate (but equal) living, eating, and drinking facilities. Voting restrictions like litmus tests and spelling tests were initiated to determine the capacity of a black man to vote. Organizations like the Klan were formed, and in some cases protected by local government, that were designed to harass and destroy any efforts of the blacks to improve their lives. Welfare was established to put those less fortunate, to include inner city style blacks, on controlled incomes to force them to have to vote for the people that did it so they could continue to eat. When the committees met to determine the Civil Rights Act in the middle 60's, not one southern democrat voted for them. They passed by republican vote alone.
And now in the 2000's, we have reached the point where the fruits of their efforts to cage the blacks, has created a far more destructive crime that no one ever thought it would get to: black on black crime.
The following stats were taken from the Department of Justice:
Should Black People Tolerate This? - Walter E. Williams - Page full
Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation's population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it's 22 times that of whites.
Sometimes when you start again at the beginning, the answer become crystal clear. And many black leaders in different industries are seeing it and are asking the same question I did, why?
How Black Leaders Exploit Their People for Political and Financial Gain
Posted by Gary DeMar in Culture, Ethics, Liberalism, Politics |
The killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman is showing how liberals – especially blacks – care more about getting the political upper hand than affecting long-term change in black communities. Blacks are used as props to raise political capital. The shooting deaths of two British students -- James Cooper and James Kouzaris -- murdered last April in Florida by a black youth received no attention by black leaders or President Obama. Three letters were sent to the President that never received a reply. "It would perhaps appear," friends of the victims said, "that Mr Obama sees no political value in facilitating such a request or that the lives of two British tourists are not worthy of ten minutes of his time."
Why no national attention to the two Chicago men who were wearing hooded sweatshirts ("hoodies") and were involved in a shooting that left one dead and five injured. This happened in the same congressional district represented by former Black Panther Bobby Rush (D-IL). This is the same Bobby Rush who wore a "hoodie" during a speech in the U.S. House of Representatives until he was escorted out.
The goal of people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Maxine Waters is to build up political capital. Fixing the problems of black communities is not their goal. They need bad neighborhoods, escalating crime, and high unemployment so they can use these as political and economic clubs to extract votes and money.
It was Al Sharpton who said that Herman Cain was not "authentically Black." What did he mean? Cain didn't have the usual markings of a poor, disadvantaged, ghettoized, welfare-raised black man because he succeeded in business. Cain could not be used as a poster child or neglect and need for the guild-laden white community to donate to liberal black causes and to get them to vote Democrat.
Jesse Jackson has made millions by "shakedown" tactics to extract money from corporations. Willie Ellis expressed his frustration with Jackson: "Open your eyes: Jesse Jackson is for Jesse Jackson and Jesse Jackson only. He stole from the people long enough. It's time the people know the true man Jesse Jackson is. He has rode on black peoples' coattails long enough." Harold Davis said Jackson "is a shakedown artist, and nobody holds him accountable."
Jackson is "worth $40 million dollars ... and Martin Luther King died broke," Davis went on to say. Jackson ignores the needs of his hometown of Chicago, "In Chicago, the kids' reading scores were the worst in 13 years; [Jackson] ain't opened his mouth. Why? Because he don't fight in his backyard when he sees a reason to go fight somewhere else," Davis said.
While Sharpton and Jackson are making their money, black communities across America are disintegrating. Welfare policies pushed by liberal do-gooders have created a perpetual dependent class – good for winning elections but bad for the overall health of black families.
While the killing of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy, there are daily tragedies in black neighborhoods. For example, the unemployment rate for black males is at 18% while black youth unemployment was at 46.5% in late 2011. Who’s to blame? Whites? The rich? Are whites and the rich to blame for dramatic school drop-out rates? Are whites to blame for the way many black young people dress when they show up for job interviews?
Who should we blame for out-of-wedlock births? Welfare has led to the disintegration of the black family similar to how slavery affected the black family structure. Welfare family disintegration is worse than slavery because politicians and so-called black leaders believe that welfare is a right that is due blacks because of slavery. The welfare has done more to harm poor people than slavery ever did.
Who’s to blame for black-on-black crime? Here are some statistics from the Black on Black Crime Coalition:
While African Americans comprise 13.5% of the U.S. Population, 43% of all murder victims in 2007 were African American, 93.1% of whom were killed [by] African Americans.
* * * * *
The U.S. Justice Department provides a breakdown of homicides by the race of both the victim and offender. Looking at the data for 2005 (the latest year available), we find that whites committed 48.0% of all murders and blacks committed 51.2% of all murders. However, whites outnumber blacks in the population. In fact, non-Hispanic whites are about 69% of the population and blacks are about 13%. These statistics alone, shows that blacks are 13% of the population, but commit 51.2% of the murders, indicate that blacks commit a seriously disproportionate number of murders."
None of this is to indict all blacks. There is a developing black middle and upper class in the United States. Their rise came about despite economic hardships, prejudice, bigotry, and outright racism. They didn’t use these as excuses to explain failure in the black community. They fought against it.
Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Maxine Waters are political opportunists. Their comments end up inflaming many in the black community and creating resentment among whites. Do blacks benefit? Yes. Some of them do. Ask Jesse and Al.
