The Black Community Is Oppressed... Unless Trump Says So

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.

Nothing like painting everybody with a broad brush.

I am black. I am not living in poverty, I went to good schools, I have a job (a business, actually) and I haven't been shot.

What have I got to lose? My self-respect if I vote for someone who refuses to acknowledge the US Citizenship and Christian religion of our current President.

4:08 I'm sorry to disagree but our current President is not of a Christian religion, at least I've never heard of Muslim's being of the Christian religion.

I with you I see nothing wrong with the black community everything is just unicorns and rainbows.

4:37 You do know it would be perfectly legal for a Muslim or a Jew or a atheist to be president?

4:37 missed the point.

The TRUTH is, as a whole, blacks are making less money than they were eight years ago, are in poverty in greater numbers, and are living in hell holes in the cities run by democrats.
Just because there are American Indians who are really wealthy, doesn't mean that all Indians are rich or have a hope of being rich.
The great majority are living in poverty with no hospitals and little hope of a better future.
Same goes for millions of blacks, who are taken for granted by the democrats.
THAT is the truth.

Christians know the truth about the good news of Jesus Christ.
Non-Christians simply do not know the truth yet.

Christ died and was resurrected thereby saving all of our souls (good, bad, and ugly) for eternity after our death. We will be resurrected and live in Heaven with Jesus Christ. All of us. Every single one of us.
That is the good news.

It doesn't matter whether a person knows the truth or not.
It doesn't matter whether he / she believes it to be the truth.
The Truth will set all of us Free.

Thank you

How about respect for YOU?

Sorry, apparently don't know the Gospel.

"Every single one of us" will NOT be going to heaven. THAT is the truth.

Admit it EVERYONE! Many in the black community have NO father, go to failing government schools with NO hope to get out, see they have NO future, hook up with gangs just to get some attention and feel part of a 'family', have NO Church experience, biblical or spiritual training, and so much more. This has been going on in many of their families for generations and they know nothing else. The Dems/Liberals hold them down on this 'plantation' for as long as they can, they want to keep them poor and stupid and totally dependent on the government. They don't want them to get a good education and jobs to move up. They do this to get their votes.

Mr. Trump is offering a different way, a better way, a way out of this pit. The black community has been voting for Democrats for the past many generations to NO avail. Let's face it, the Democrats have taken you for granted and taken advantage of your unwillingness to truly change. Well break out of your box and vote for a CHANGE, a change that could finally offer you true hope for you and your children and grands...

The blacks are afraid of "change" because they will have to go to work all week. They are happy with sitting on the porch getting government cheese and dealing drugs, and having to go to work will destroy all that. They don't want to learn anything in school, as that may qualify them for a job. They are better served complaining they couldn't pass "Whitey's" school crap and therefore are unable to get jobs. Besides, Whitey are always preferred to get the jobs. (Maybe because "Whitey" Learned all the lessons school had to offer?"

Check out this week's Fredoneverything blog. It's well done on this subject.

You're a business owner, not in poverty, and you haven't been shot. I think your colored kin would call you an "Uncle Tom". Isn't the "white system" great, when you play by the same rules as we do?
