Why do conservatives assume that black people's views on society are a result of brainwashing?

This is part 18 in a series of 35 questions. It is based on a series of questions answered by John Hawkins for Townhall.com: here, and here.


18. Why do conservatives assume that Black people’s views on society are a result of brainwashing by the left rather than by our own experience?

The ridiculously short answer? Because they keep voting for politicians and leaders that promote programs that have been shown not to work; programs that don’t help them, and in the long run hurts them. Yet they keep voting for the same programs, and the same leaders. We throw more and more money at the problems they want fixed, but there’s no sign of improvement.

And black people that think outside the box, and try to persuade others to try something different? They’re traitors; Uncle Toms.

If that doesn’t sound like brainwashing I don’t know what does.
