A provocative and unapologetically written polemic invective on the paramour-ish relationship that has existed for decades between the American Democrat Party and the American Black voter. The book characterizes a number of anecdotal experiences that should reveal insights into the behavior of the Black voter, from societal as well as cultural perspectives. Moreover, it challenges Whites to avoid being shrunken into extinction by retreating from a narrative that continues to be under the command of Black engendered reverse discrimination.
While everyone may not be for this book, this book is an imperative for the thinking person and most notably the non-thinking person needing the motivation to break stride with routine and default behavior.
A must read for all minorities, democrats and most republicans. The media totally dismisses any black conservative as not how the blacks feel. So they must resort to other means to get their message out. This book does an excellent job of getting that message out there and saying what the politicians and the media will not. Milt has outlined in his book just how blacks came to vote 90% democrat and how that strategy has worked out for them. It also tells how they have become government dependants and are stuck there unless they change their outlook and their vote. There is real "hope and change" in this book. You won’t be sorry you read this one.
The small phalanx of free thinking, conservative black intellectuals who have no fear of speaking their minds–men such as Herman Cain and Thomas Sowell–has a new member these days. His name is Milt Thomas, a proud South Georgia farm boy who came of age during the civil rights era and made his way through the University of Georgia and up the ladder of corporate America. His new book–Black, Dumb and Barefoot and Knocked up by the Democrats–bears testimony to his view that black political culture in league with liberal democratic dogma has hampered the opportunity of black people to break into the American success story. Armed with a barrage of metaphors, plenty of undisguised vitriol and a bit of wry humor, Thomas makes it clear that far too many people of color in America have bought into the belief that voting as democrat automatons will help them buy into the American dream. Sadly, he tells us, the dream continues to dangle tantalizingly on the horizon as liberal politicians borrow from the future for quick gratification in the present.
Thomas laments that the "hope and change" of the Obama phenomenon has not worked out for the low-income people and blacks in general who thought they stood to benefit most. "Now," he tells us, "as they start realizing the consequences of their ways, those who once carried Obama’s sedan chair privately suffer remorseful sticker shock, leaving them to wish for and plot for his political crucifixion."
This first outing for Thomas lays out his perspective via anecdote, personal history and personal philosophy. It is a clear vision laced with the passion of frustration and anger that has come from his years of watching an ill-realized civil rights vision evolve into a culture of legalistic diversity training and political correctness. My guess is that his next book will look ahead toward what needs to happen to lead the American black culture away from the impediments of the past few decades. One would hope that conservative thinkers–people like Milt–will provide momentum to that movement.

I applaud my friend Milt Thomas for this brave stab at addressing, no, crucifying issues many choose to simply ignore. Whether you are black, white, Asian, Hispanic, what-ever your ethnicity this is a must read. Yes, it has strong political leanings; yes it has eye-opening potential to a black culture headed the wrong way; but remember that it is written by a black executive who thinks it’s hie time to "SAY IT OUT LOUD," and boy does he! Milt has a way with words and even if you don’t agree with his point of view, you will simply love the way he chooses to present it. There is something to gnaw on for everyone while having fun at the same time! When you are finished, you will want to share it, talk about it, rebut it or maybe hit "Delete" but it will certainly insight emotion of some kind. I guarantee it!
I’m half way through Milt’s engaging book, and I’m reminded of George Will on steroids. I can’t wait to finish it.
