    Folks, when we blacks tell you how blacks see things, learn to listen.

    8 In 10 Black Americans View Trump As ‘A Racist,’ Poll Finds

    Lisette Voytko

    Topline: A Washington Post/Ipsos poll found that more than eight in ten black Americans view President Trump as “a racist,” with nine in ten respondents disapproving of his job performance⁠—and with the election still ten months away, former vice president Joe Biden is (so far) black Democrats’ candidate of choice.


    • The poll was conducted January 2 to January 8, and painted a largely pessimistic outlook by black Americans, 65% of whom said it was a bad time to be black in America.
    • Despite Trump touting his presidency as being good for black Americans, 77% of respondents said the president should get “only some” or “hardly any” credit for the 5.5% unemployment rate among their community..
    • While the black unemployment rate is at its lowest point in years, it stood at 16.8% in 2010, during Barack Obama’s first term as president, and was at 7.5% when he left office.
    • In terms of their personal financial situations, 54% report no change during Trump’s presidency, even though the stock market has reached record highs.
    • Black Americans who believe Trump to be racist also tend to believe he’s made racism worse in the country and that white Americans do not understand the discrimination they experience.
    • The poll did find, however, that 65% of respondents feel optimistic about their own lives, a belief that crosses political divides and age groups.

    So, the fact that Trumps policies have helped that 65% who feel good about their lives doesn't matter. Got it. Orange man bad. The fact that his policies have brought more black people out of poverty than ANY of their so called leaders (who require a continuous poor underclass to further feather their own nests) is immaterial.

    Got it.

    Come back when you have something a little more balanced.

    I am sorry IM 2. The Progs can not do anymore about issues affecting the Black communities. They are putting extra taxes on vices to the point that the revenue brought in is diminishing. Sodas and sugar drinks with cigarettes and others is just the beginning. Meats will be part of the next wave along with Deli products to be taxed if a way to sell it to the citizen can be made. But the elites will still get theirs. We all will be eating insects in a couple of decades with plant/laboratory based meat products while the elites will be eating the freshest meats from animals there are.

    I don't think he's any more racist than your average white in the Democrat party. I don't know if he is but yes, we have all been told so. As soon as he became president, the Democrats went to their war room with their friends in the media and started checking all the boxes to begin their war to take the office back, discredit him, and prevent him from moving forward with any policy. They were devastated that Hillary would not be able to continue with the policies that Obama had started, undoubtedly from their perspective they see the Trump presidency as being a huge set back. Painting him as an extreme racist, somewheres close to Adolf Hitler is a necessary distortion. To bad if its true 8 out of 10 black people believe this.

    If 80% of blacks think president Trump is a raysis...why are 65% voting for him?

    Are these the same polls that told us hillary would win in a landslide? :lol:
