As the Republican Party moves toward the 2016 Presidential Primaries, a surprise endorsement has come from the National Black Republican Association (NBRA), led by co-founder and Chairman, Frances Rice is endorsing Donald Trump for president.
The grassroots organization of black Republicans stated that they support Trump because of the shared values and that both Trump and the NBRA are fiscally conservative, steadfastly pro-life and believers in a small government that fosters freedom for individuals and businesses, so they can grow and become prosperous.
Rice said, “We are deeply concerned about illegal immigration, a major cause of high black unemployment, especially among black youth.”
“Black Americans across America are beginning to wake up and see clearly the reality of what is happening in black neighborhoods, “Rice stated. “Democrats have run black communities for the past 60 years and the socialist policies of the Democrats have turned those communities into economic and social wastelands, witness Detroit, Baltimore, and South Chicago.”
Rice went on to say, “We believe that Mr. Trump has demonstrated that he can push back against the mainstream media, end political correctness and free black communities from the destructive grip of socialist Democrats. We urge our fellow black Americans to seize control over their own destiny and leverage their vote the way other groups do.”
“It is way past time black Americans stop having their vote taken for granted by Democrats, hold politicians accountable for the content of their policies and not vote merely based on the label of their party.”
Frances Rice is a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the United States Army (1984), a native of Atlanta, Georgia, received a Bachelor of Science degree from Drury College in 1973, a Masters of Business Administration from Golden Gate University in 1976, and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of California, Hastings College of Law in 1977.
In 2005, she became a co-founder and Chairman of the National Black Republican Association, an organization that is committed to returning African Americans to their Republican Party roots.
In the latest Fox News poll, Trump received 34 percent among Republican primary voters; Cruz got 20 percent, Rubio was at 11 percent and Carson was at 8 percent. As to why those numbers are where they are as Trump continues the lead, betrayal, dissatisfaction, and anger topped the list with fifty-two percent of GOP primary voters feel “betrayed” by politicians in their party.
Fox News also reported that 88 percent of Republican voters describe themselves as dissatisfied with the way the federal government is working and that included 40 percent who are flat out angry.
