Donald Trump is doing something that most Republican candidates haven’t even thought of doing in the past…he’s courting black voters. Going to North Carolina, Trump reversed position on immigration, saying that now, he’s “softened his stance” and wouldn’t be deporting 11 million illegal aliens. That number would be lower, allowing those that have been hard working and non-criminal to stay (though not gain citizenship).
Next on the agenda was Detroit. The Motor City is one of the most bombed out, torn apart cities in America. It’s lost huge numbers of people. From it’s high of 1.8 million in the 1950 census, Detroit has lost 1.1 million people in 60 years to 713,000! It was 83% white in 1950, and is 90% black today. I’m not saying that has anything to do with the decline in population, because it doesn’t. What DOES have a lot to do is that over that 60 year period, Detroit has been totally controlled by Democrats. And what Donald Trump is going to do is go to Detroit’s inner city, and speak with the blacks and tell them that Barack Obama hasn’t been a friend of theirs. Looking at the data, he’s right.
Even though the White House bristles when you bring up the subject, blacks have lost ground under America’s first “African-American President”. Unemployment for blacks is 8.4% compared to 4.3% for whites. The unemployment rate for whites has fallen 37% over the past eight years, 33% for blacks. More? Sure…fewer blacks own homes today than in 2008. Black home ownership stands at 41.7% compared to 46.1% in 2009, that’s a drop of about 10%. Under Obama, blacks living under the poverty line has increased from 25.8 to 26.2%, and blacks on food stamps have risen from 7.3 million to 11.7 million, a 58% increase.
Those numbers are hard to combat if you’re Obama. And Donald Trump thinks if he goes in, talks to the people using the “what do you have to lose” strategy, he can pick up some ground. Now, that’s a very tough thing to do. You can have discussions with Democrats all day long (and I do), to find out WHY they would support Hillary Clinton, and it comes down to one simple thing: she’s a Democrat. She could be a mass murderer (oops…she’s been accused of that, hasn’t she?) and they’d still back her because she’s NOT a Republican. They’d rather have a murderous, scathing, lying, psychopath in the White House (and I’m not saying she’s all of that…I’m using that as an example) than a Republican of good standing (and again, I’m NOT saying Donald Trump fits that mold either!). That’s just sad, but it shows how much America has been dumbed down. We care more about the party in charge (both sides do) than we do about the people actually running!
Obama has been a failure as a president. He hasn’t had one success in foreign policy, and his domestic agenda has been riddled with court cases going against him, executive orders that end up being overturned by the Supreme Court, and actions that will be undone the next time a Republican gets elected president. What he’s done for the black community? Well, that’s just criminal.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
