Yes this is Malcolm X speaking about the Democrats and Lyndon B Johnson. Malcolm X has said many things that most people do not agree on but this passage speaks volumes.
Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you’re dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party, you’re not only a chump, but you’re a traitor to your race. – Malcolm X
They try and pass the buck to the Dixiecrats. Now back during the days when you were blind, deaf, and dumb, ignorant, politically immature, naturally you went along with that. But today as your eyes come open, and you develop political maturity, you’re able to see and think for yourself, and you can see that a Dixiecrat is nothing but a Democrat in disguise. – Malcolm X
They’ve been down there four years, and they’re — all other legislation they wanted to bring up they brought it up and gotten it out of the way, and now they bring up you. And now, they bring up you. You put them first, and they put you last, ’cause you’re a chump, a political chump. – Malcolm X
Even Malcolm X saw how the Democratic Party used the Black community back in the 60s for their own agenda not addressing the community’s living standards or job situations but Blacks still voted Democratic.

And what have Conservatives done for Blacks? Look at extremely Conservative North Carolina. Blacks are screwed economically & politically. Conservatives cut unemployment, have made cuts to education, and have made laws designed to suppress minority votes. Only the wealthy are prospering. Conservatives are only about helping the rich get richer. Wake up. You have been bamboozled.
