    ....Rev. Corey Brooks has extended an invitation to Republican presidential candidates to come visit Chicago’s South Side. The reason, he explained, is that after 50 years of the black community being “loyal” to the Democratic Party, its “failing” policies have many African Americans, including himself, questioning just how “loyal” the party is to them.
    Brooks is the pastor of New Beginnings Church near the so-called “O Block,” one of the most dangerous areas in Chicago, where Rev. Brooks has seen enough of the poverty and violence engendered by Democrat policies. Despite decades of the black community loyally voting Democrat, Brooks said, the community is increasingly feeling “like the Democratic Party has not been loyal to us.”
    The Daily Beast’s Justin Glawe reports:
    “We have a large, disproportionate number of people who are impoverished. We have a disproportionate number of people who are incarcerated, we have a disproportionate number of people who are unemployed, the educational system has totally failed, and all of this primarily has been under Democratic regimes in our neighborhoods.” Brooks said from the office of New Beginnings Church of Chicago, his own, Wednesday morning. “So, the question for me becomes, how can our neighborhoods be doing so awful and so bad when we’re so loyal to this party who is in power? It’s a matter of them taking complete advantage of our vote.”

    Brooks explained that he was inviting Republican candidates to the area not to secure votes for the GOP, but to help his community be better informed voters. But he also made clear that he believes that the Democratic Party has proven that they have a “failing plan.”

    Foolishness and everybody knows it. A Democrat President wouldn't have much impact on Chicago. A lot of the things he's talking about have to be dealt with on a local and state level. So he needs to be inviting local and state Republican candidates if he feels that way about the Dems.

    Then he's done the stuff that will matter. A Presidential candidate isn't gonna do much for the neighborhoods.
