It’s not everyday you hear a black former professional black basketball star rip the Democratic Party, so when one does, it’s noteworthy.
In a video posted on social media, Kwame Brown, the No. 1 overall NBA draft pick in 2001, blasted Democrats in general for continually making claims and promises on which they have never delivered, a pattern which held true during Joe Biden’s campaign.
Brown says he was contacted by Democratic and Biden campaign workers to get him to vote for the candidate, but when he would ask specific questions about what policies Biden planned to pursue as president that would be beneficial to the black community, they could never provide him with specifics.
Rather, those callers, like others before them, offered only vagaries and platitudes — more of the same kind of things he says he’s heard for years.
Brown then took so-called “woke n***as” to task as well, comparing their demand for rigid conformity to Democratic ideology akin to “the KKK.”

“You fake woke n*gros man, y’all, y’all are the worst thing to the black community,” he said. “You fake woke n****s won’t allow independent thought, because I don’t care who you vote for. I ain’t never cuss nobody out for voting for the Democratic party, I ain’t ever called anyone a coon or a disrespectful name, none of that.”
“You motherf***ers are, you guys that do that, not all Democrats do that, but the guys who do that, y’all are the new version of the KKK,” Brown went on. “White folks don’t got to do nothing. You all are the new version of the KKK because you try to intimidate.
“You try to exile black folks and you try to cancel them because they don’t agree with you and that’s sad,” he noted further. “You act like you doing something righteous for doing that, ‘the Democratic Party is our people!’ So, you going to hurt another black man for the white people that you like? You a fool.”
Brown isn’t the only black American to compare Democrats to an organization their party founded after the Civil War.
Last week, a black Virginia mother “slammed critical race theory at a school board meeting … comparing the radical education standards to tactics used by Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan to demean black people,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.
“Critical race theory is not an honest dialogue, it is a tactic that was used by Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan on slavery very many years ago to dumb down my ancestors so we could not think for ourselves,” Shawntel Cooper said. “Critical race theory is racist, it is abusive, it discriminates against one’s color. … You can not tell me what is or is not racist.”
Former NFL great and current Utah Republican Rep. Burgess Owens also used the comparison in ripping Joe Biden’s referral to Georgia’s voting integrity law, passed earlier this year, to “Jim Crow 2.0.”
“This is the type of fear-mongering I expect in the 1960s. Not today. And by the way, literacy tests and protests were … initiated by the Democratic Party. The intimidation of black Americans by the KKK was initiated by the Democratic Party,” he said last month.
