Austin, TX, Release: September 23, 2020. For Immediate Release
Since its inception, the Republican Party of Texas has been working to provide equal opportunity for all American citizens regardless of their race. The Democrat Party can claim no such mantle since it has long been the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, and mass incarceration.
Chairman West perfectly highlights this in his statement below:
“We hear the rantings from the left about systemic racism, but the truth cannot be hidden. Joe Biden is a representative of the real purveyors of systemic racism in America, the Democrat Party. Their delusional hypocrisy is utterly disconcerting, abjectly disturbing. This short video gives evidence, using Biden’s own words, of the depth of the disdain they have for the Black community. And shame upon Kamala Harris to embrace the politics of personal opportunism to further betray those with whom she claims unity as being “Black.” Never forget, the Republican Party of Texas was founded on July 4th, 1867 by 150 courageous Black men. At the same time the Democrats were creating the Ku Klux Klan. The once violent racism of the Democrats has been replaced by the soft bigotry of low expectations, but it’s just a continuation of systemic racism.”
The video, made by Black Voices for Trump, cited by Chairman West in his statement above, is posted below.
The Texas GOP wants every community in Texas to succeed and hopes more of the Black community will join us as we lobby for school choice, defend the Second Amendment, and work to bring more white collar and blue collar jobs to Texas.
