If you’re Black and in the inner city, Trump says you’re in the ghetto

One of the most surprising things about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is his doubling down on stupidity. In the past, Trump has referred to the African-American community as “the Blacks” and stated that the plight of the community was so bad “What did you have to lose” by voting for him as President? Yesterday, he once again spoke about Black communities using the most negative imagery possible.

Trump stated at a Toledo, Ohio campaign rally in front of a mostly White audience, “And we’re going to work on our ghettos … You take a look at what’s going on where you have pockets of, areas of land where you have the inner cities, and you have so many things, so many problems… So many horrible, horrible problems. The violence. The death. The lack of education. No jobs.”

Trump has consistently associated the Black population with the inner city in an effort to appeal to his White working class voter base. In addition, he has tolerated and approved of their overt racist and in some cases violent behavior at campaign rallies. In some cases critics have stated that he, in fact, incites violence at such events. His attempts to reach Black voters has overall failed and he is trailing in polls with this demographic. The candidate is also suffering negative numbers across a wide spectrum of American voters because of his recent comments about not possibly accepting the results of the election if he loses.

His arrogance in attacking the fundamental “peaceful transition of power” in the United States was horrifying to a vast majority of American voters. But this does not seem to faze Trump in the least and he is delighting in his moment, He told the crowd in Toledo, “What a difference it is. I’m just thinking to myself right now – we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?”

Trump’s statements, however, do not reflect the fact that his opponent, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, holds a commanding 12-point lead with 11 days left until the election.

    Drumpf is too little too late. He’s not smart enough to win a general election. He wants to sue his accusers rather than run a country. How can he justify waiting until after the election to sue his acusers. Is winning the election more important than actually performing the job itself? This demonstrates that he doesn’t want the actual job!

      But TRUMP is correct in his assessment. BLACK FOLKS in inner cities are in GHETTOS. Let’s not act like BLACK FOLKS are in CONDO’S, Towers, or in LOFTS…

      BLACK FOLKS are now 4th CLASS CITIZENS in our own AMERICA…

      1st Class = Whites, RICH BLACKS, and Asians

      2nd Class = Africans, Hispanics, Caribbeans, Indians from INDIA

      3rd Class = illegal Immigrants

      4th Class = Blacks – BORN in the USA.

        The only color is green. People worried about race are fighting for scraps. That leaves you and all the other high school dropouts.

          I guess you don’t realize BLACKS are the poorest race in AMERICA. Did you not get the MEMO…

            That’s not true. Native Americans and Alaskans are. The only common denominator is discrimination.

          • Sol Rothstein on October 30, 2016 at 8:35 pm

            YOU are stupid. Native Americans own CASINO’S and LAND. We don’t own shit. Alaskans are Americans. DUMB ASS NIGGERS…

          • Dunit on October 30, 2016 at 8:58 pm

            What does Alaskans being americans have to do with anything? And blacks own accounting firms, doctor offices, hair salons, dentist offices, record labels, daycares, churches, basketball teams, clothing lines, makeup lines, tv stations, movie labels, fitness businesses, nail salons, and the list goes on. Your problem is you’re not part of the group. So you haven’t been exposed to blacks who own their own businesses because they don’t deal with losers like you.

          • Sol Rothstein on October 31, 2016 at 2:46 pm

            No we do not.


            Name me the BLACK COMPANIES you are talking about…

    The “rigged” political process has reached a level of uncomfortableness. First the elite media took issue with Donald Trump’s use of the word “inner-city.” Now they want to magnify and gussy up his use of the term ghetto. Their embellishment is nothing more than “gilt-edged” semantics and immaculate “bubbles of gas” emanating from their ass.

    But, this is precisely the reason there is no longer a blind partisanship link between the black community and the Democratic Party. The black community owes the Democratic Party NOTHING. It’s the Democratic Party’s continued facetiously, disturbing and arrogant attitude. We turned out and backed the Democratic Party for more than 50 years. In exchange for our blind loyalty we got nothing.

    Donald Trump has called for a “NEW DEAL” and has pledged to listen to African-Americans. He said “I fully understand the African-American community has suffered from discrimination,” Mr. Trump has specifically referenced disparities in education, employment and public safety, and promised to bring “prosperity” to the black communities that Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and black political leaders now refused to admit is troubled.

    Those who control the black community “block of votes” are upset. They realize Mr. Trump is a threat to the monopoly they have operated for decades at the expense of the lives of black boys and girls dying each day in our INNER-CITY STREETS. They need to “miss us already” with that bullsh*t that we no longer live in the hood.

      The black community is tired of Mr. Drumpf laying in bed with white supremacists. As soon as they admit everything they have been gifted in the US has been at the expense of blacks, and they are no more deserving or better than anyone else. Maybe we’ll talk.
