Fox News host Jesse Watters responded to those on the left calling the American Dream “dead”, asking if it’s racism that’s holding Americans or Democrats back during Thursday’s “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
JESSE WATTERS: If the Democratic Party is home to black Americans, has the Democratic Party let them down? And is racism just an excuse for the failure of the Democrats? Democrats are still running in front of the camera every week to brag about all they do for the black community. What exactly do they do and does it work? Democrats have named the first black woman to the Supreme Court, and it’s a milestone we can all appreciate. But Democrats also blocked who would have been the first black woman on the Supreme Court, Janice Rogers Brown, when Bush tried to elevate her because she was a Republican. Their intentions are therefore not pure.
Biden could have appointed any liberal judge to the High Court who ruled in exactly the same way as Jackson. But it’s historic because she’s a black woman, which is largely symbolic – dignified, but symbolic. And it’s all part of the plan.

Democrats will promise to save your community, to protect you, to educate you, to enrich you, but do they? I’m not so sure. But they are definitely big on symbolism. What have Democrats done for black Americans on issues like school choice, safe streets, and wages? They knelt a lot. But where is the police reform? The patronage mill is in full swing, however, as is pimping.
The one man who presided over meaningful change has been called a racist by Democrats every day. Donald Trump unleashed the economy, leading to record black poverty rates, record black unemployment, and huge income gains for black Americans pre-COVID. Not to mention authorizing hundreds of millions of dollars for historically black colleges — something the Democrats failed to do. But the Democrats, you see, they scream louder, and they scream scarier stuff, like, “If you don’t vote for us, the Republicans are going to put you back in chains.”
Is racism holding you back or are the Democrats? White politicians who talk about fried chicken and hot sauce then say you’re not black if you don’t vote for them – that’s screwed. And if you advance, they want credit. No, you deserve the credit. The American Dream is alive and well for everyone.
