In 2013 Elbert Guillory, then a black state senator in Louisiana, switched from Democrat to Republican.
A speech explaining the switch is making the rounds on Twitter again and every American, especially minorities, needs to watch it.
Louisiana voters, please watch why @elbertguillory left the Democrat party when he was a State Senator.
This is powerful. pic.twitter.com/KtkN7r7pyZ

Here is a partial transcript from a prior speech in 2013, via Alipac:
With each passing day, I have become disappointed in the Democratic Party. What would be the impact on schools due to immigration?
One of the biggest disappointments has been breakdown of American families. Their policies have encouraged the high teen birthrate, high school drop out rates, high unemployment. Children are encouraged to get the crazy check instead of honkering down to get an education.
Minority unemployment is in the stratosphere.
