Black conservative commentators Diamond & Silk just slammed Democrats for their all-talk, no-action approach to getting votes, primarily the black vote.
Speaking about Democrat promises and calls for slavery reparations for African-Americans, Lynette Hardaway (Diamond) said on Fox & Friends,
“Let me just tell you this here, when it comes to Democrats listening, they promise on everything and they deliver on nothing. Look at how they’re promising reparations, black people don’t need reparations, they need liberation from the Democrat Party.”
While Democrats talk a big show every 4 years to get voters on board, President Trump is actually taking action and showing the American people that he gets things done!
“When it comes to the Republican Party, we have a Republican president. He’s not all talk, he takes action!”
Contrary to the mainstream media narrative and what Democrats want you to believe, President Trump is taking action to benefit ALL Americans, of every race. Underneath his administration, black unemployment has significantly decreased as Trump revitalizes the economy while opening new doors for black Americans to get jobs.
As Rochelle Richardson (Silk) put it,
“The president is doing what he needs to do when it comes down to black people by showing people this is what you need for the black community. You need jobs so you can take care of your family. Instead of talking about it, he’s ‘being about it,’ and that’s why black people are waking up to it.”

Following Diamond & Silk's appearance on Fox & Friends, Fox News had the following to say about their comments:
"Let me just tell you this here, when it comes to Democrats listening, they promise on everything and they deliver on nothing," said Diamond on "Fox & Friends."
Diamond also blasted some Democrats for pushing for reparations for African-Americans, which has recently become a talking point amongst 2020 Democrats.
"Look at how they're promising reparations, black people don't need reparations, they need liberation from the Democrat party," Diamond said.
The duo agreed largely with Barkley, who went after Democrats for allegedly only paying attention to black voters around election time.
"They’ve been taking black people’s votes – and they only talk to black people every four years. All of these politicians only talk to black people every four years because they want their vote," Barkley said in an interview aired Wednesday.
He added that he thought Republicans didn't talk to black voters and that Democrats did "nothing in the four years in between."
"Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade agreed with Barkley, and called on Republicans to further their efforts in the black community, but Diamond and Silk pointed to President Trump's actions in response.
"When it comes to the Republican party, we have a Republican president. He's not all talk, he takes action," Diamond said, referencing the historically low black unemployment rate and Trump's commitment to the First Step Act.
Diamond & Silk's remarks were made in response to basketball legend Charles Barkley's statement that reparations for slavery are not logistically possible and that Democrats only pander to black people to get their vote.
Mediaite has more to say about Barkley's comments:
Legendary NBA player Charles Barkley slammed Democratic politicians for only addressing black Americans “every four years” and suggested that not all Trump supporters are racist while discussing the 2020 election on Wednesday.
Barkley, who made the comments on Michael Smerconish’s SiriusXM radio show, began by highlighting his experience working with Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) during his 2017 special election victory against disgraced state supreme court justice Roy Moore.
“I said ‘Doug, I’m going to support you. I’m going to try to get every black person in Alabama to vote for you.’ And it worked out. We won for the first time in 40 years,” the former Philadelphia 76er and Phoenix Suns power forward explained. “But I said, ‘we need to start holding you Democrats accountable’ because they’ve been taking black people’s votes – and they only talk to black people every four years. All of these politicians only talk to black people every four years because they want their vote.”
