Donald Trump is making a a pitch to the African American community, and the professional commentariat could not be more livid.
“You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”
“You walk down the street, you get shot.”
Those are the highlights of Trump’s pitch to black voters which hasn’t gone down well with the pundits. The consensus among media elites and liberals is that it was at best tone-deaf. At worst a racist dog-whistle to white supremacists.
