Trump’s Vision of Black America Is a White Supremacist Fantasy

Posted by hitchingupthetrailer on 2016/08/24

It is sad that so many of us think Donalds view on this topic is correct without having any personal experience or doing any fact checking.

I do feel sorry for Akron (http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Akron-Ohio.html) for the increase in some of the crime since 2002, still other types of crime are down. But comparing it to a warzone where your city is bombed, you are starved, shot at, and finding food is a life risking task is not a fair comparison.

It’s clear that Donald Trump’s “black outreach” isn’t actual outreach to black communities. A Trump who wanted to reach black voters would speak to black churches, black colleges, and organizations like the NAACP or the Urban League. The actual Trump, instead, has made his pitch to lily-white audiences in towns and neighborhoods with few black residents. And for good reason. Trump is never going to win more than a token percentage of black voters. If he wants the White House, he’ll need to persuade as many white voters as possible, and a visible commitment to diversity is one way to win over a certain class of right-leaning, suburban whites.
