Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones annihilated his party during the first night of the Republican National Convention saying that they have become “infected” with “intolerance, bigotry, socialism, anti-law enforcement bias, and a dangerous tolerance for people who attack others, destroy property, and terrorize our communities.”
.@RepVernonJones: "The Democratic Party does not want Black people to leave their mental plantation. We’ve been forced to be there for decades and generations."

“The Democratic Party does not want Black people to leave the mental Plantation they’ve had us on for decades,” Vernon Jones said. “But I have news for them: We are free people with free minds. I am part of a large and growing segment of the Black community who are independent thinkers. And we believe that Donald Trump is the President that America needs to lead us forward.”
“I grew up in the South. My parents built with their own hands a four-room cinder block home with no indoor plumbing. They had very limited education. But they instilled in us a strong work ethic that drove me from the tobacco fields of North Carolina to hallowed halls of the Georgia General Assembly, My parents taught me if I believed in God, worked hard, and treated every person fairly, there was no limit to what we could achieve.”
“I attended North Carolina Central University, a historically black college. For generations, HBCUs have been the breeding ground for black scholars in math, science, religion, engineering, and politics. They have been important springboards for black success ever since. But Democrats haven’t treated them like that,” Jones continued. “When President Trump took office, he changed everything. He delivered historic funding to HBCUs. And he guaranteed it for 10 years. That gave our HBCUs stability–the chance to grow and produce the next generation of black leaders.”
Thank you Mr. Jones @realDonaldTrump
Thank you for showing America what bipartisanship looks like
Some of your fellow colleague’s have forgotten how to step into the aisle and choose whats best for the Country and not thier party!
