Wow. And in front of a mostly white audience.August 19, 2016 at 4:41 pm #22658
Sure, so vote for him and just SEE what you’ve got to lose. It’ll be more of a loss than you can imagine.August 19, 2016 at 4:57 pm #22659
During the nine decades between the Emancipation Proclamation and the 1950s, the black family remained a strong, stable institution. Its cataclysmic destruction was subsequently set in motion by such policies as the anti-marriage incentives that were built into the welfare system. As George Mason University professor Walter E. Williams puts it: “The welfare state has done to black Americans what slavery couldn’t do, what Jim Crow couldn’t do, what the harshest racism couldn’t do. And that is to destroy the black family.” Hoover Institution Fellow Thomas Sowell concurs: “The black family, which had survived centuries of slavery and discrimination, began rapidly disintegrating in the liberal welfare state that subsidized unwed pregnancy and changed welfare from an emergency rescue to a way of life.”August 19, 2016 at 4:59 pm #22660
What HAVE they got to lose? Why would Democrats in power risk making things better and losing their voting block?August 19, 2016 at 5:12 pm #22661
As I said… vote for Trump and see how that works for you. Just be prepared, however.August 19, 2016 at 6:13 pm #22662
The GOP has spent decades tacitly, and in many cases quite openly, courting racists and bigots. The party is almost entirely white, it’s almost entirely targeted to whites, and courtesy of Donald Trump is now the openly favorite political party of a variety of white power organizations and hate groups.
That’s just the fact, Jack.
You can white ‘splain and conservative spin that all you want to those foolish, foolish black folks but they’re not buying.
Trump is going to lose the black vote in historic fashion. On a national level, the GOP is in the process of losing entire generations of current and future voters.
Demography: it ’tis a bitch.August 19, 2016 at 6:20 pm #22663
Shortly after the real estate mogul concluded his speech, CNN anchor Brianna Keilar asked Trump campaign senior adviser Jack Kingston why Trump continued to reach out to the black community in rallies with mostly white audiences held in areas where few African-Americans live.
“Maybe it would have been nice if he went and had a backdrop with a burning car,” Kingston replied. “His rallies are open to the public. Last night in North Carolina we saw a lot of African-Americans. I wasn’t sure about the crowd content tonight… but they’re open to the public, and I mean, there’s nothing exclusive. The reality is, what he is saying is ‘I want to talk to you.’”

Yes…to speak to black audiences you need to hang out where there’s a burning car in the background.
Trump has yet to visit a single city where the population is minority/majority.
It’s hard to believe Trump is polling around zero to 1% with the black vote. Or in Trump speak, “So unfair”!August 20, 2016 at 8:14 am #22666LangstonParticipant
What have you got to lose? Your self respect.August 20, 2016 at 12:03 pm #22667
Meanwhile, the GOP is already quietly preparing for President Hillary Clinton.August 20, 2016 at 12:37 pm #22668Andy BrownParticipant
“Trump is going to lose the black vote in historic fashion. On a national level, the GOP is in the process of losing entire generations of current and future voters.”
Racial and cultural resentment have replaced the GOP’s small government ethos and spelled out the possible end of the Republican Party.
According to the American National Election Studies, the white percentage of the national vote overall has dropped fairly steadily from around 95 percent during the period from 1948 to 1960 to the low 80s by 1992 to 73 percent in 2012. The Republican Party did not keep pace with this change, nor did it do much to win younger voters. 2008 featured a gaping chasm between the over-65 vote and the 18- to 29-year-old vote: There was a 43-point difference between how the two groups voted, with the older crowd going for John McCain by 10 percentage points, even as he lost the overall election by a 7-point margin to Barack Obama, the country’s first black president.August 20, 2016 at 1:28 pm #22669BrianlParticipant
As is the case with virtually every single living thing on our planet, you evolve, or die.
The GOP is DEvolving, if anything. They want to not only hang on to what shred of public discrimination, racism and bigotry that is sanctioned left, but to oppress people that have been granted equal protection for some time now. All because Jesus.
This is why I vote less and less Republican.August 20, 2016 at 3:46 pm #22673August 20, 2016 at 8:20 pm #22675paulwalkerParticipant
Finally, something smart from the Trump campaign. Perhaps their new leaders finally get it. Oregon and Washington, as well as California are all lost causes.
His “new campaign” is not doing any better than his old campaign in my opinion. This man will lose, and lose big. No wait, he will lose “HUGE”.August 24, 2016 at 6:47 pm #22717AmusParticipant

When decoded, this is actually what’s being said;
“The Blacks” by nature are lazy freeloaders that, when given the option will opt for the handout (free stuff) over initiative & hard work.August 25, 2016 at 7:42 am #22720
That’s not what Dr. Williams, who is also black, intended to say at all. That’s a gross misrepresentation. People of any race can be spoiled, corrupted, and debilitated by providing for them what they can do for themselves.
