    White Republicans always talk about inner cities, but never talk about Appalachia. Why?

    White Republicans insist that they’re very concerned for African-Americans in inner-city communities.

    At the same time, if you point out the poverty in Appalachia, they’ll say that’s because there’s African Americans living in Appalachia. So they’re concerned about black Americans in poverty in inner cities but not about black Americans in poverty in Appalachia? How does that make sense?

    Then you look at Kentucky which is close to 90% white and West Virginia which is almost 94% white and they have five of the 10 poorest counties in the country.

    So what exactly is the republican message?

    They ask why help people in poverty when they’ll still be poverty. You could extend that to why help people with cancer when they’ll still be cancer.
    Imagine how much MORE poverty there would be if the Democrats refused to help anybody? Wouldn’t blue states look like red states?

    In fact, shouldn’t Democrats be going in the red states and asking them what has being a Republican done to help you And your family??

    Are Democrats missing a golden opportunity?

    Please stop pretending you give the slightest of fucks about my region and its people. We are nothing more than a tool for your retarded political games.

    You’re not talking to Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham. Because if anybody is screwing over their GOP base it’s them.
    I have relatives living in Virginia and South Carolina.
    Thank God for me because they will never vote GOP after the information I turned them on to.

    From what I've read West Virginia is turning things around. Or was...old article but it's interesting it states they overturned 83 years of democrat control.

    Maybe Derp should dig a tad deeper to see what ails Appalachia instead of screaming the same old shit "REPUBLICANS!!!!"

    West Virginia is great again, and Trump is to thank

    That’s an opinion. In fact it’s not even a good opinion, it’s more of a wish.
    What is it you think Trump has done for those people?

    :popcorn: this should be good.

    It's getting better in some ways and regressing in others, but I know damn well that neither political end gives a shit about the Rust Belt and/or Appalachia. I've been hearing the same promises of economic resurgence and regrowth for as long as I can remember, but very little comes of it.

    The truth of the matter is I could explain it to you, Derp but you're entirely too fucking stupid to grasp it.

    Sadly numerous people have told you this for years but you keep posting your daily "republicans are bad" BS.

    More than Dem legislators did in the previous 30 yrs. Dems just kept them stupid and needy to the Govt. Give hard working honest people a chance to work and better themselves and they will. Give a Socialist the same chance and they'll complain the work environment at the construction site dries out their skin and they'll need special accommodations , then they'll quit and tell their friends they got fired for complaining about the work conditions. Appalachia is a fine place by the way with tough Americans. Appalachia has always been outside the main stream.
