For many years, Republicans have been calling out Democrats for their failed leadership in America’s inner cities. Major cities that have been run by Democrats for decades are crime-infested, poverty-stricken, and harm millions of Americans.
Speaking at Trinity University in March, conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza had some strong words about how Democrats are the real racists in America because of how they have let the inner cities crumble under their watch.
“Let me just say this. If one goes today to the Democratic controlled inner city,” he stated. “We will see in them now, all the five features of the slave plantation.”
D’Souza, citing a book by Kenneth Stampp, then listed five similarities between America’s slave plantations from over 100 years ago and America’s inner cities today.
“Number one, broken down, dilapidated and unsafe housing. Number two, broken families,” D’Souza explained. “Number three, a high degree of violence required to hold the place together.”
“Number four, everybody gets a basic provision … but nobody gets ahead. The Southerners and the Democrats used to call slavery a ‘school of civilization,’” he explained.
D’Souza said the fifth and final point was “a feeling that there was no future,” among the residents of these places. “That this is an inter-generational, ongoing, lasting way of life.”
He then explained that the United States government has spent “trillions” of dollars on the inner cities, but there has been no noticeable change. “The Democrats have been in charge of fixing it, and yet many of these places are no better off than they were in 1967,” he stated.
“At the very least, this displays a callous and shocking disdain for the welfare for the people who live in those communities,” D’Souza said of Democrat leadership.
D’Souza rounded out his remarks by saying that if President Donald Trump could actually connect with the folks in the inner cities — and bring about change — that would be a “mammoth opportunity for the Republican party.”

He is absolutely right. For too long inner city folks have been held down by Democrats and their failed policies — and Republicans haven’t put in enough effort toward fighting back.
If Trump can change this narrative and change these inner cities for the better, the Democrat party will continue to fall to pieces as it is exposed for the corruption, incompetence and selfishness that is rampant among its politicians.
