Herschel Walker has blasted Democrats for “playing the race card way too much” at their national convention this week.
The NFL legend also called Democrats out for using racial politics as an election tool and doing nothing, apart from making empty promises to African Americans in the United States.
“Every four years you do this for a vote,” Herschel wrote. “And the violence and death in our communities, yet you say nothing?”
Breitbart reports: Race dominated the convention on Thursday night. Biden opened his speech with a quote from a civil rights activist and then went from there directly into the Charlottesville riots.
The plight of blacks under the last Democrat president illustrates Walker’s point on violence in black communities nicely. When Barack Obama became president, blacks accounted for just over 48% of all murder victims in the United States. Eight years later, that figure had risen to just over 52% of all murder victims.
In addition, from 2009-2015, the bulk of Obama’s presidency, the number of white murder victims fell while the number of black murder victims rose. Obama is remembered for making history by becoming the first black president. Though, not for anything he actually did for black people.
Despite these grizzly numbers, Democrats sought and won huge majorities of the black vote in 2016.
