A leader of the New Black Panther party gave an interview recently in which he said the Democratic party “pimps” the black community.
Quanell X, a New Black Panther party leader, discussed Republican nominee Donald Trump’s appearance in Milwaukee after the latest police shooting on Fox 26 Houston, reports BizPac Review.
Quanell X stated that although the black community had been loyal to the Democratic party, Democrats had not given them back the same loyalty.
“We, as black people, have to reexamine the relationship. We’re being pimped like prostitutes and they’re the big pimps pimping us politically, promising us everything and we get nothing in return. We gotta step back now as black people and we gotta look at all the parties and vote our best interests,” he said.
He told the host that while blacks may not like Trump, they still need to listen to his message.
“Donald Trump decided to go to Milwaukee and speak about the conditions in American and why he thought black people should vote for him. He even went on to lay out reasons why we should. Let me say this to the brothers and sisters who listened and watched that speech. We may not like the vessel that said what he said, but I ask us to truly examine what he said,” Quanell X stated.
Quanell X also pointed out that under Obama, economic and political conditions for the black community worsened.
“No politician can save the black community,” Quanell X said. “We gotta do it ourselves.”
