I think we are in the place with the trump campaign where he is supposed to be reaching out to black people. When you are polling at 2% among black folks nationwide you have to do something.
What trump did, though, was so clueless and out of touch that it’s almost laughable.
I guess we shouldn’t expect the man who questioned the legitimacy of the first African American president, and who refused to rent or sell his buildings to people of color to know any better. But someone should really tell Donald that he can’to just go lumping al black people together as a monolith. There is so much more to “the blacks” than ghettos, unemployment, and poverty. But Donald, bless his heart, just doesn’t get it.
Middle class blacks, have the same concerns as middle class whites, and they want the same things that they do: Good schools, proper government services, to be kept safe from foreign and domestic terror, and make sure that their tax dollars are going to the right places.
Sadly, in Donald’s world, all we want are handouts.

A recent poll found that Trump trailed Hillary Clinton among African-American by a margin of 92–2. Polls the key states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, found that Trump attracted zero percent of the black vote. (Even Mitt Romney, running against the first African-American president, managed to get 6%.)
