Kamala Harris: Let’s Just Buy the Black Vote

Kamala Harris: Let’s Just Buy the Black Vote

Speaking Saturday at the Essence Festival (an event celebrating black culture), presidential hopeful Kamala Harris promised to invest $100 billion in housing assistance for black families as part of an effort to increase minority homeownership and close the racial wealth gap.

“A typical black family has just $10 of wealth for every $100 held by a white family,” said Harris. “So we must right that wrong and, after generations of discrimination, give black families a real shot at homeownership – historically one of the most powerful drivers of wealth in our country.”

So let’s give people free money…

In other words, Harris is buying votes.

Her immature plan focuses on red-lined communities, which are areas the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation has urged investors to avoid, and seeks to increase credit access for black families by altering crediting reporting standards to include utility and cell phone payments. 

 “My new policy will remove unfair barriers black Americans face when they go to qualify for a home loan,” tweeted Harris.

To qualify for housing assistance, applicants must have lived in a red-lined community for 10 years and must earn less than $50,000 per year ($75,000 in high cost areas). The federal grant would cover up to 20% of the loan value plus closing costs and could not be applied to homes that cost more than $300,000.

According to Harris, the plan would help 4 million families and shrink the wealth gap between blacks and whites by 31%.

Author’s Note: As a black candidate, Harris’s campaign has a sharp focus on the race card.

In June during the debate in Miami, Harris attacked frontrunner Joe Biden over his opposition to using federally mandated busing to racially integrate schools in the 1970s.

A week later, polls showed Biden down 5 points and Harris up 6 points.

Now, Harris is offering black families money just because they are black. If this isn’t the very definition of racist, I don’t know what is. Harris claims she is fighting discrimination in the United States, but is offering money only to blacks. Just imagine what would happen if a Republican candidate offered housing assistance exclusively to white families.

Editor’s note:  I know these are just campaign promises, and she cannot possibly put them into action, but Harris has just put an opening bid on the Black vote.  Will any of the other candidates bid higher?

    Kamala Harris is one of the biggest racists out there….And by the way, if this “plan” of hers is any indication, she obviously thinks that black people aren’t capable of getting jobs or buying houses without her help. With black unemployment at a historical low, with all of the job and career help and education that President Trump has made available, there is no reason not to be able to make a living.

    If I were a black American I would be highly insulted by this incompetent, dishonest race monger, Harris.

      Unfortunately, there are quite a few people who are perfectly willing to let the government provide for them from the cradle to the grave. The upside? They don’t need any funerals or grave markers since they never “lived”.

    Harris is racist with her plan, she like all the other democrats have nothing to run on but lies and empty promises, another Obama, the black community already has plenty of federal programs to help them without giving more

    If Harris is correct in her assessments, the money she demands can only come from whites. I doubt that the majority of any race would happily surrender a large portion of their assets to another race on the flimsy reasoning that Harris spouting. This racism on steroids, to say nothing of an insult to every black person with even minimal cognitive ability.

    She doesn’t think very much of black people . This is really a slave mentality, of which she wants to be their massa!
    And they say white people are the racist ones . Blacks had better wake up to the democrats . They are the ones who have kept you on the plantation. White people expected and expects you to work like we do . That’s equality . Free handouts makes you their slave . Like the devil ! He will give you your hearts desires . But there is a high price to pay .
    Keep voting democrats and you will never get off the plantation . Blacks have never rose above their stature under a democrat or democrat president. But under a Republican they have been raised up and not put down .Actually look up the real history !

    Isn’t this a form of racial profiling? I mean if white Americans are made to pay for, what Harris calls, “discrimination of blacks” , then they shouldn’t complain when they are stopped on the street by law enforcement because of their “color”. She believes all “whites” should be held responsible for slavery from years past. In her eyes, if you are white you are “guilty”. You now have her answer to “reparations”. Does her wonderful plan also call for theft from the Latino and Asian populace? Just wondering how they feel about that.

    Now she’s making another moronic promise that if elected ALL black people will get free houses/housing. How is that NOT DISCRIMINATION!!!? If Joe Biden comes out and say’s “Free Housing For White People” you can bet what would happen!

    I agree with most of the comments and as a Black American will disagree with some. Nevertheless, Harris is trying to court the Black vote with the silly idea, we all think alike and as many so called leaders promote the “victimization argument” The gains made since end of the civil war were remarkable. And the challenge was not easy, the price paid was high in lives sacrificed for our rights as citizens. I resent anybody who will diminish that success earned. Nor do I appreciate any white/black leader who will insult my dignity and disrespect my humanity for political purposes. The democrats have lost direction through ignorance and desire to feather their own beds. A sure fire way to insure the re-election of Trump and many more votes from within the African American community. Despite finding Trump objectionable the issues he is confronting are real, I question the style used. At this junction in time, nobody else seem to meet my expectations as president except Trump.

    Hey dingbat. Once you own a home you have to afford the upkeep. Utilities. Landscaping, repairs. Everyone wants to own the mansion but can’t afford the taxes and upkeep!
    Or are you going to take care of that too with my money?

    Harris just implicated herself in attempting to buy votes using taxpayers dollars.
    In the U.S. vote buying is an offence when a person knowingly or willfully gives false information or conspires with another individual for the purpose of encouraging his false registration to vote or illegal voting, or pays or offers to pay or accepts payment either for registration to vote or for voting shall be fined not more than $ 10,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This provision shall only by applicable to general, special, or primary elections (42 USCS § 1973i(c)).

    Like Obama she is only half black . She slept her way to Washington with old rich white guys to stupid to not close mb into her lair . She has slavery in her ancestry . But has owners . And her latest fiasco tells all blacks they are too stupid to get off the plantation . She wants to be their new massa!
    I pray black Americans will see her for what she really is .

    Why not?????? The Democrats have been buying the Black Vote ever since LBJ signed the Civil Rights act! How many Billions of dollars has that cost the American Tax Payer and what good did it do? Is the Black population that gets welfare any better off then they were before the Civil Rights act? It created a society of Welfare dependent who have not idea what working for a living is all about.

    Lady – where have you been – the dems have been buying the black vote for decades along with the union vote which they got great benefits but are bankrupting the very states they worked and served in….
    Now it’s illegals ya want to buy off too…
    The only ones in OPPOSITION to a citizen question are the socialists that want to continue the LIE….
    The US is neither the worlds police force – world’s employer worlds benefactor…..
    You and others are correct…. The actual numbers are closer to 60 million + as estimated by DHS. I was assigned to INTEL back in my Laredo years … During those years INTERNAL investigations showed higher than estimated numbers…The INTEL was then WIPED from investigation files by the previous admin….
