In an article dated 10/20/2016, liberal “smear merchant,” Huffington Post, entitled, “Donald Trump Really Needs to Quit Saying ‘The African Americans.’”
During the final presidential debate this past Wednesday night, candidate Trump stated the following: “We need law and order, our inner cities are a disaster. You get shot walking to the store. They have no education. They have no jobs. I will do more for African-Americans and Latinos than Hillary Clinton can do in 10 lifetimes. All she’s done is talked to the African Americans and the Latinos.”
Author Lilly Workneh seem to think that this was offensive, with the Republican nominee alluding that all blacks are uneducated, unemployed, and reside in inner cities. Of course, Trump wasn’t saying this. He was illustrating that Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, had done nothing to make things better for low income blacks, many of which live in the inner city sections of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and other large metropolitan areas throughout the United States.
Even though it was Republicans who were responsible for the passing of the 1964 civil rights legislation, blacks have overwhelmingly voted Democrat, thinking that the Democrat party wants to “help them.” However, because the white folks, particularly those who vote Republican, won’t pay enough money in taxes for entitlement programs such as Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, these programs aren’t doing what they were designed to do and thus, the percentage of Americans in poverty, particularly black Americans has increased.
Mr. Trump said that we need law and order, our inner cities are a disaster. Does anyone, black or other than black, disagree with this? Trump also said, you get shot walking to the store. They have no education and no jobs. Innocent people regularly get shot in the inner cities because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Blacks have continuously voted Democrat because Democrats have continually brain-washed them into thinking that their tax and spend policies are the only mechanisms that will help poor blacks. For a generation, there is no evidence that those tax and spend policies have done one scintilla of good. Now, Donald Trump is asking black to give him a chance, pointing out that the Democrats have not been much help to them. And this is offending them?
Democrats have offered to help low income blacks for more than a generation and to no avail, but when a Republican asks to be given a chance, they get all offended. A related tweet stated the following: “Referring to a diverse community of people as “the African-Americans” shows you have no understanding that they are, in fact, human beings.” Is this person (Michael Fells) for real? This is a real stretch. Someone had to do a whole lot of thinking to come up with this.
Maybe it’s the word, “the,” that’s offensive. I wonder if Donald had left off the work, “the,” would blacks and of course, other liberals, find this offensive.
As I said above, nothing in what Donald Trump said during the third debate even remotely indicated that all blacks are uneducated, unemployed, and live in inner cities. But the same people who get offended by Donald Trump’s words, are the same people who cheered when Hillary Clinton said that half of Donald Trump supporters were a basket of deplorables. Subsequently at least one Democrat operative indicated that she should have said all Trump supporters were a basket of deplorables. In addition be being described as deplorable, liberals have also indicated that Trump supporters are uneducated rednecks. My response to the person who shared the link to this article was as follows: “But I guess it’s okay to call Trump supporters deplorables. Also, I guess it’s okay to label Trump supporters as uneducated red necks. And I guess it was okay for Barak Obama to call those of us who are Christians and support the second amendment, bitter clingers.”
What’s it going to take to make blacks happy? Liberals, including black liberals, claim they want things to change for the better in the inner cities, but a Republican dare not say there are problems in inner cities, and when he or she does, offense is taken. Liberals, including black liberals, seem to insinuate that there are no problems within the inner cities. I guess the only problems blacks have are the isolated incidents where somebody black is killed by somebody white. Then it’s time to mobilize in order to destroy property and injure those poor people who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This article was contained in a section of the Huffington Post called “Black Voices.” If this is all author Lilly Workneh could muster up, things must be pretty fine among blacks. We know this is not the case. Stupid articles such as this article mask what are real problems, not just in lower income/high crime black communities, but in all low income/high crime communities.
Again, what’s it going to take to make liberal blacks happy? My conclusion is nothing. As long as they give charlatans like Al Sharpton, the Black Lives Matter movement, and Barak Obama a voice, while rejecting Donald Trump and the Republicans who want make their lives better, nothing is going to get any better.
