20-Year-Old Friends Become Youngest Black Republicans Elected in Connecticut



By: Warner Todd Huston
12 Nov 2017

A pair of 20-year-old friends may have just become the youngest black Republicans ever elected to public office in Connecticut, according to reports.

Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown, a pair of young black men elected to office in Middletown, Connecticut, have been friends since middle school. They share many things but most especially an interest in politics, WTNH channel 8 reported.

Speaking of his friend, Mr. Ford told WTNH, “I met him playing two-hand touch football.”

Now, these two college juniors may have become the youngest black Republicans ever to be elected to a public office in the liberal state of Connecticut. On Election Day, Ford won a seat on the Middletown school board, and Brown was elected to the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission.

Both young men admitted that many of their fellow millennials look suspiciously at them for being Republicans. They also note that they are serious about their politics.

Ford, a psychology major at Central Connecticut State University, and Brown, a business major at Southern Connecticut State University, hope to bring their conservative ideas to their newly won seats.

I hope that we are witnessing an emerging trend and a demonstration that some Americans who happen to be black are fed up with identity politics of the Democrat Party. 

Dr. King dreamed of a time that his children would be judged by their individual character and not by the color of their skin!

Identity Politics and party defined "political correctness" demeans individuals and has created a Liberal Plantation where it keeps the various 'groups' it promotes.   The Liberal Left promotes tribalism and is disgusted at the thought of the American experience of a Great Melting Pot.  America is a country where we celebrate that which unites us; not those things which separate us from one another!

Kudos to these brave young men who are standing up for what they believe in and breaking the mold the Democrats have created for all Americans who are minorities.

You could never hold it, or do it right for sure. Those young men are off to a good start. I hope the best for them, and if they are real conservatives, show the RINO’s how it is supposed to be done. Connecticut is all done. Democrats running it for most of the past 100 years. Unfortunately, the party turned into the socialist party in the late 1960’s until now. Totally destroyed the manufacturing there. And it is a sanctuary state, press one for English.

contrary to your positive reaction to these great American millennial's courageous stand, how long will it be before hypocrites of the left start calling them names like uncle nephew Toms?

Democrats BELIEVE they own all minorities and HOPE this will never CHANGE!

Do you even know what the term "identity politics" refers to?  Trump played to the "Forgotten Man (and Forgotten women) many of whom were part of the Democrat base, at one time.

Obama and the Elite Liberal establishment decided to turn their backs on working class Americans and build a coalition of minorities, which they separated into specific voting groups such as LBGQT, Hispanic, Black, Women, Hip Hop, Rappers, Mellenials, Muslims, Immigrants (not differentiating between legal and illegal, rich versus poor, Student and any other "identity" they could dream up.  The Dems have then pandered to each group and scapegoated others for all their problems.  Grouping Americans into hyphenated subsets which you can then manipulate is the concept of "Identity Politics".
