Today, I was aghast as I saw the unfortunate GOP nominee Donald Trump, make his ill-advised pitch to Black voters. After his first sentence, I was so sorry for him, that I wished he would stop after that first insult. Basically he told us as politically incorrect as possible, that we are all poor. He spouted a lot of erroneous statistics and then came the vote-killing, “I mean, what have you got lose.” delivered as only a churlish New York gambler or shyster can make one an offer.
Mr Trump worked very hard to out-do Ron Paul and Paul Ryan’s disasterous out-reach to Black voters. I am now settled in my belief that these blunders are inevitable as long as he continues to be schooled by Bill O’Reily, Shaun Hannity and others of the kind, who need to believe that the cocoon they lived in was real. Their cock-eyed world that believes Blacks vote as we do because we want free stuff. What do I have to lose? My life!
Until they know that Blacks in America have become exceptionly attentive to the unspoken, that they easily pick-up signs of racial bias, well, it’s your party’s wake. Until Trumpers replay the tapes of Hillary Clinton’s graciousness after loosing to Nominee Barak Obama; when they see through our eyes her own loyalty to the Democratic Party and rock-solid support for our president, you have missed the show and its instruction on the virtue of loyalty.
No one talks about meritocracy more than GOPers. If they believed that, they’d vote for Secretary Clinton. Our vote for her stands despite the three decades of persecution and wilful waste of time and taxpayers money. Until you understand that we watched as you, Trump and cohorts kept up daily insults, demanding proof of citizenship and school records from our President. Worst, we watched him be insulted by gov Jan Brewer as GOPers cheered. We watched you vilify First Lady Michelle Obama.
Trumpers are mystified that hanging “untrustworthy” and “crooked Hillary”, and crude labels on Secretary Clinton has no effect on her support. That was the politics of the fifties and sixties. No politician would be stupid enough to refer to citizens constituencies by “Your schools…..your unemployment……your housing”, as if talking to a foreign population. That is why she will be President Clinton. That is why you, Mr Trump, unable to learn anything, will continue to be a buffoon at large, awaiting every federal judge in these United States for the rest of your vampiric life.
