Rev. William Owens is the President of the coalition of African American Pastors, and he has made a startling endorsement. He is voting Trump. He is planning to hold a press conference in Nevada to state his opinion.
In 2015 he made a bold statement regarding Obama:
“President Obama is a disgrace to the black community, He is rewriting history. We didn’t suffer and die for gay marriage. We marched for opportunity, equality, justice, freedom from oppression. We are the true heirs of the civil rights movement.”
He is exactly right, the democrats expect loyalty from the minority community, yet they give nothing back. Instead they hold minorities back, they don’t offer opportunity, and Rev. Owens has had enough.
When I was first called to help others, I began an organization called the “Give Me a Chance Ministry.” Our goal was to provide scholarships, tutoring and mentoring programs to underserved students. One of the keys to that remarkably successful program was the fact that we asked nothing from the university involved other than that they give these students a chance to excel. That is the position that I find myself in today when looking at the best candidate for President. Donald Trump has humbly asked the African American community to give him a chance. After witnessing 50 years of failure from the Democratic Party, compounded by a growing hostility to religion in their platform, I feel that it is definitely time that we give Mr. Trump that chance to prove he can be a great President.
Owens, a black minister who marched with Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the civil rights movement, has launched an ad campaign urging black voters to abandon the failed policies of the Democrat Party.
In an open letter to black voters, Owens states:
It is time we faced the truth. The policies embraced by the Democrats have failed us for decades. They have destroyed our communities, weakened our families, and doomed us to a future of dependency. What’s more, the Democrats now take our votes for granted and ignore our voices in favor of other interest groups.
“Be honest,” Owens addresses black voters. “Can you really say that Hillary Clinton speaks for you? Or understands the African American experience? We’re told that we should vote for her because … well, because blacks have always voted for Democrats.”
Owens says he came to the realization that his relationship with the Democrats was “completely one-sided.”
