Good thing the Independent is a “non-partisan” newspaper, otherwise Lord knows how many pages Ms. Jimenez might have filled with her coverage of the “March for Humanity” put on by the SC/SCW Democrats Clubs.

Vander Mate: Gathering had only one side of issue

Good thing the Independent is a “non-partisan” newspaper, otherwise Lord knows how many pages Ms. Jimenez might have filled with her coverage of the “March for Humanity” put on by the SC/SCW Democrats Clubs.

Don’t get me wrong, I found it enlightening to see that Democrats still ridicule anyone who disagrees with them, as in “.. we understand where their head is at..” or “..racism is alive and well in Sun City West.” They still consider people of color to be victims who need to be saved from things that they have no control over. Easier to just blame the police or the “system” than actually do the hard work that these communities need.

I didn’t see any signs calling for an end to black-on-black violence, to fix the broken schools, improve access to health care, provide family counseling to help keep families together or job and career assistance. You won’t see BLM proposing any of this either.

Instead of treating them as helpless innocent victims, how about respecting them as the brothers and sisters they are. There are many success stories that have come out of these communities.

Maybe we should be looking for those people to lead a renewal instead of self-serving politicians, so-called public servants and demonstrators with cute signs.
