[Ed. – For a second opinion, check out the next headline down.]
In his State of the Union address this month, as preposterous as it seems, President Donald Trump made it clear he intends to reach out to black voters. He made one of the last living Tuskegee airmen, 100-year-old Charles McGee, a brigadier general, and he had other black guests present in the gallery with the first lady.
Let me be direct: Black voters aren’t buying what Trump is peddling.
How do I know? I am a black person, who was a loyal Republican for decades. I recently left the GOP in protest of the president’s conduct, as have many of us regardless of race or gender.
A poll of black Americans published last month in The Washington Post showed where Trump stands: 90% disapprove of his job performance, 83% think he’s a racist, and 65% say it’s a bad time to be black in America.
