Why, Yes, Trump’s Policies Are Better For Blacks

As you noticed, Donald Trump is making an appeal for the Black vote, telling blacks specifically what the problems are in their communities and putting the blame on Democrats in a manner you never hear from Republicans. Democrats have locked down the black vote since the 70’s, and what has it gotten blacks? Take a look at Democrat run cities, and the violence, the unemployment, the poverty, the poor schools for blacks.

(NY Post) Hillary Clinton claims that some of Donald Trump’s appeal is “xenophobic, racist, misogynistic.” On Thursday she asked, “If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?”

But who actually cares more about blacks, in particular poor blacks?

On everything from education to jobs to crime, Trump’s policies offer a lifeline to people who have been losing ground for decades. Hillary’s policies will just exacerbate them. And no amount of speeches will change that.

On education, Trump strongly supports school choice. This would give inner-city blacks a way out of horribly performing public schools. Clinton attacks charters and clearly opposes other forms of school choice, opting to protect teachers unions at the expense of students.

And who’s harmed the most by illegal immigration? Who’s most likely to suffer unemployment or wage reductions due to the added competition? Young, unskilled blacks and Hispanics. The biggest beneficiaries? Wealthy people who get to pay less for lawn care and housecleaning.

When it comes to crime, blacks and Hispanics are often trapped in the high crime areas created in Democratic Party run cities by Democratic Party policies. Hillary wants to release more felons from jail. Trump wants to increase police support in the high crime areas. Hillary supports Black Lives Matter and their hatred of cops, and wants to make the jobs of police more difficult. Trump supports the police.

Hillary supports making it more difficult for people living in these high crime areas to obtain a firearm to protect themselves and their families from the very crime created by Democratic Party policies. Trump supports citizen’s rights to own a firearm.

Democrats clearly haven’t served blacks well, and more of the same isn’t going to help. If blacks are willing to listen to Trump, his logical arguments may have a real chance of winning them over.

Of course, the media is spinning furiously for Hillary and Democrats, because, somehow Trump policies that would provide school choice, better education opportunities, better job opportunities, lower crime, a higher standard of living, safer communities, and so forth, essentially rolling back all the damage done by Democratic Party policies, would be bad. Well, bad for the elections of Democrats. They treat blacks (and Hispanics, gays, etc) simply as a voting block, not as people with hopes and dreams. They take them for granted. Dems promise government largess, and have failed the black community.

As Trump said “What do you have to lose by trying something new?”

    This is your best response. So juvenile, not even that.

    Mr. Sowell has an opinion, and opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

    See how quickly a leftist throws a brilliant, successful black American under the bus because the black man is smarter and conservative? Seems as long as ou lefst can keep people dumb and poor you got’em hooked and ripe for your bran of exploitation. But once they “get uppity” an educated and realize you are the poison and conservatism is the cure you immediately attack their credibility.

    LBJ was describing how the Republicans are able to frighten poor whites into supporting counterproductive conservative policies, but I’m not surprised you misinterpreted the point.

    What counterproductive policies do Republicans “frighten” poor whites into supporting? Are poor whites somehow instantly stupid fools simply because they don’t have a lot of money? Do you judge all people by their wealth or just white people?

    Much of what conservatives believe to be true is actually false.

    You keep repeating this ridiculous mantra over and over like it was drilled into your head at some propaganda camp. You do realize how foolish you sound when you pretend to know what others “believe” don’t you? Or didn’t the they point that out to you. Listen to what I mean:

    Much of what liberals believe to be true is a lie.

    Now can you see how dumb that is or are you going to close your eyes, put fingers in your ears, stamp your feet and deny the stupidity of your statement. Cause after all you’re a leftist and that means you’re alllllways right.

    Like what? What do conservatives believe to be true that is actually false.

    Hoagie and others,
    You do realize that Jeff is sick. The guy is not playing with a full deck. He should be in an institution, but the liberals did away with mental health in the U.S..

    Seems appropriate based on your previous comment.

    Professor Sowell is a rock-ribbed conservative and all his opinion pieces reflect his biases. His opinion is no more relevant than any other.

    Tax cuts increase tax revenues…

    Donald Trump understands economics…

    It’s usually Republican House members who have legal difficulties involving underage boys. The Missouri House Speaker stepped down after sexting an intern, who was a girl, surprising for a Republican.

    I will make my point YET AGAIN…..WE ENABLE These bastards by giving them unbridled power…..we defend our side as if their shit dont stink no matter how many laws they break or what they do.

    WE aRe ALL ENABLERS….until were not…..Ive decided to stop being a political enabler.
