Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory has recently switched parties from the Democrat party to the Republican party. Whenever a politician changes positions, they are often slammed with criticism on both sides of the aisle. 

But before his opponents had the chance to attack, Guillory made this video explaining Why I Am a Republican.

In the viral video, the Senator of Louisiana claims that for too long the black community has voted overwhelmingly for the Democratic party. But he points out that black communities are no better than they were many years ago. 

Now, Elbert’s only video, which he posted ten days ago, stands with over 650,000 views.
