Here is a letter to the editor from a African-American activist from New Bedford who is also a registered Republican. The writer has long been an advocate for African-Americans, be it in print or on the radio, here in the SouthCoast and well, here is his opinion on the state of Massachusetts politics.
Locally, we see the Democratic Party once again leading people of color down the same old worn path of being undereducated, underemployed, underdeveloped, and overincarcerated. The Democratic Party theme repeats itself, whether in New York City or New Bedford, or choose any other Democratic stronghold (plantation) for that matter; the results are invariably the same.
We can change this cycle of dependency by breaking the chains of political bondage to the Democratic Party and giving our children and our grandchildren an opportunity to say, in the words of Rev. Martin Luther King, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
