Crystal Wright, the black conservative who accused African Americans of being too stupid to vote Republican, brought her same political insights back to Fox & Friends to suggest that Republicans should reach out to African Americans by lecturing them about how Blacks Behave So Badly.
You may recall that on February 1, Wright helped Fox & Friends kick off Black History Month by announcing, “Blacks have shown a slavish support for the Democrat party for over 50 years. And part of me wonders if the Republican party should even bother asking for the black vote because black Americans seem to like being political dummies.”
Today, Wright told host Brian Kilmeade that she has always been for Republicans reaching out to black voters. But she still doesn’t seem to think very highly of them.
WRIGHT: Bernie and Hillary, just like Barack Obama and every Democrat before them, has done nothing for black people but tell them lies. And then what happens is they look at black leaders and they fight to pimp out the black vote. So they are jockeying now, Bernie and Hillary. They're fawning all over the black leaders and they are trying to get black people to tell us, like we're dummies, “Hey black people, vote for these Democrats who aren't going to do anything for you,” and the cycle keeps repeating itself. I have always said Republicans need to go out there and ask for the black vote. Because blacks should no more vote for Hillary or Bernie than they should the grand wizard of the KKK, because they keep giving us all these bad policies. And last night, you know what they should have said, Brian? “Hey, black people, stop having 72% of your babies out of wedlock and your kids won't be going, won't be massly incarcerated and arrested.”
How did Kilmeade respond to this outlandish “strategy?” Certainly not by challenging it. He said, “Well, that'd be an interesting message. I'm not sure it would have resonated, unless you said it.”

Well, Ms Dolezal looked a hell of a lot more like a “Black chick” than this supposed “conservative Black chick,” Crystal Wright. (It’s also kind of funny that she’s been challenged on her very credentials as a “conservative Black chick”—that, in 2008, she voted for Barack Obama, but only started her website by 2010, just a few months after donating to DEMOCRAT Senate candidate, Kendrick Meek.)
