No Identity Politics

Fredrick Douglas, Republican, started a series of abolitionist news papers, including one named The North Star.

The motto of The North Star was “Right is of no Sex – Truth is of no Color – God is the Father of us all, and we are all brethren.”

I do not believe in identity politics–period. Why would we as a party segregate? During the past 4 years, we’ve had to confront our segregationist enemies by showing them that, yes, black people can and do support Trump.

We need to let them know where we stand, but we need to be careful to not take the Democrat playbook and use it as our own. We see where that got us. Minorities have been used as pawns to further a quiet controlled paradigm that we have been stuck in since 1964, which essentially says that your beliefs are acceptable to the degree that they conform to stereotypes based on skin color.

We are all given freedom of thought by God–not by political affiliation, skin color, or status. We are neither superior nor inferior to anyone, so why behave that way? The Republican Party is the party of liberty.

If I depended on everyone looking like me to step out and stand up for my beliefs I would never stand. I’m no different from anyone else. We all have the same choice. I pray God gives us all the boldness and wisdom to realize this truth. #WWG1WGA
