We were not allowed to ask questions or refute anything about the Party or it’s platform–even though we were never told what that platform was.
It just didn’t make sense to me.
I enlisted in the military, but things were not any better there as the Blacks that I encountered were of the same mindset, and we’re also blind followers of the Democratic Party. We sat down for hours discussing why they thought that I should be a good Democrat and keep quiet. They never listened to my point of view because they told me that it was from a “white man’s” perspective.
I finally decided to walk away from it all and become a free thinker. It was the best thing that I have ever done in my life.
