State Rep. Justin Hicks Says Democrats’ Free Pass With Minorities is Over

A black Republican competing for a House of Representatives seat has denounced what he sees as the Democrats’ tradition of a ‘free pass’ to minority voters.  Rep. Justin Hicks (MO) explained to the media that minority voters are starting to see through the phony promises made by the Dems.

Hicks gained notoriety last year for adamantly stating his American identity during a heated conversation with Democrats on the (DEI) diversity, equity, and inclusion trend.

The webpage for Justin Hicks states that he and his wife Heather have a daughter called Liberty, who is two years old. In addition to being an attorney and a former Assistant Attorney General of Missouri, he is a six-year combat veteran of the Army. He is a committed Christian and staunch conservative.

The much-discussed movement in minority voter support from former President Biden to former President Trump is something that Hicks has seen.

He says many minority groups are beginning to see through the Democrats’ empty promises. He went on to say that Republicans’ principles, like lower taxes, smaller government, and letting people live their lives, were appealing to people of all backgrounds.  There will be a significant change regarding minority groups by November.

As the lone black Republican in the Missouri House, Hicks has endured what he has called harassment from Democrats due to his color, and he has an ongoing fight against Democrats’ racist politics.

He went into detail about last year’s incident when, in opposition to a measure that would give state funding for DEI programs, he refused to say his ethnicity in response to a Democrat’s attempts to convince him to do so, and he was applauded for his refusal. He spoke with great pride in his identity as an American.

He said that is not the country he fights every day to protect. In that country, he said, people are judged not by their character but by superficial characteristics like skin color or hair texture.

He enlisted in the Army at the age of eighteen.  His six years of service influenced his political beliefs and highlighted the need to strengthen the military and preserve its international prestige. In his opinion, Americans tend to lose sight of their blessings.

If elected, Hicks promised that he would fight for budget balance to protect Americans from rising prices and prevent future generations from bearing the burden of America’s excessive debt.  The primary is August 6.
