What Did Former NFL Player Garry Cobb Say About Democrats And The Black Community

Former NFL linebacker Garry Cobb believes big government policies have done more harm than good for the black community.

During an interview on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on NewsmaxTV, Cobb, a former Democrat said,

“I was all into the Democratic Party and everything and then I started realizing they helped destroy our communities and we’re celebrating electing these people.”

One of seven children, Cobb and his siblings learned from their parents about the importance of not relying on the government for everyday wants and needs. Despite their low-income upbringing, all of his brothers and sisters went to college. In addition to graduating from college, he had a successful professional football career that lasted 11 years.

Cobb compares his upbringing to some of his cousins who relied on government assistance. In stark contrast to his family, he witnessed the downward spiral of their lives.

To put an end to the suffering in black communities, Cobb is taking action.

Cobb is running for congress in New Jersey’s 1st congressional district and volunteers by counseling and mentoring inner city youth encouraging them to stay in school and out of trouble.

“I’m talking to the youngsters, trying to give them motivation to stay in school and I’ve been doing that for the last 20 years so I’ve given of myself,” he said.

With urban communities facing so many challenges such as failing public schools, crime and high black unemployment to name a few, Cobb’s message and compelling life story is an example of America’s exceptionalism.
