It was written by Mac Davis for Elvis because of Elvis really did grow up in a ghetto. So it is not racist unless some one thinks poor white people are being seen in a bad way by this song.

Na Elvis's family was white trash. He was brought up in the South and mixed with black folk. That is how he developed his spiritual/blues orientated vocal style, pretty rare for a white guy in the early fifties.
Must admit though I thought he was singing about a black guy but even if you listen to the original single, 'black' isn't mentioned.

Bullshit.
Most of Obama's jobs were government jobs...which is a net loss to the debt. He hired millions of blacks and foreigners and put them in the federal government. He expanded the IRS by 1000%. He also took over the TSA. Also, the way they count jobs changed under Obama. One person holding 3 jobs to make ends meet isn't the same as someone who has a full-time job that pays the bills...but under Obama a part-time job is the same as a full-time job. He considered a job that worked 20 hrs a week the same as one that is 40 hrs a week.
What counts is how many private sector jobs you helped create.
BTW, Democrats intentionally destroyed the private sector under Trump with their Draconian lockdowns.
You cannot blame Trump for that.
