Minorities Not Buying Trump’s Bogus Kumbaya Chorus

Share

Americans love to blame the media for bias, for presenting a slanted view of reality.

And in at least one case, I’ll concur: They have done a terrible job of representing to the broader public what life is like for black and brown America.

The inaccurate impressions created by “if it bleeds, it leads” news coverage were amply evident in Donald Trump’s recent “outreach” effort to African-American voters. He sought to enumerate the various unfair afflictions blacks suffer in America — problems supposedly only he can fix — but exaggerated them to a point that was insulting.

Trump’s messaging style is blunt and simplistic. And he is clearly ignorant of what life is like outside the bubble of wealth he has floated in all of his 70 years. So it’s no surprise that his appeal to black voters would be both naive and offensive.

But it’s worth considering how American news coverage has inspired and supported Trump’s assumption that African-Americans and Latinos are overwhelmingly mired in poverty, can’t get jobs, dodge bullets every day and struggle to graduate high school.

Trump is taking cues from headlines and breaking news bulletins. Last weekend’s murder tally, the latest poverty statistics, reports of public school systems struggling to educate poor urban children: those stories are familiar. They have an impact, they address problems and they deserve attention. I’m not apologizing for covering a murder in lieu of a high school fundraiser.

But the usual news coverage does not tell the whole story of any community; nor does it even relate the most prevalent life stories. A headline will not read, “One black male killed in shooting: Everyone else in a two-block radius went to work or school, mowed their lawn, did some grocery shopping and ate dinner with their family as usual.”

So when Trump addressed African-Americans from a white Michigan exurb to ask for their votes, he cited a litany of woes most black voters don’t face and asked, “What the hell do you have to lose?” The implicit answer would seem to be: the same things most American voters have to lose — quite a bit.

Now Trump is trying this shtick on Latinos.

To a crowd in Tampa, Fla., he said, “To the Hispanic parent, you have a right to walk outside without being shot.”

Then he added: “What do you have to lose? I’ll fix it.”

Let’s be clear: Disproportionately, Latinos and African-Americans do fare worse than white households in many areas, such as employment, measures of health and educational attainment. They are disproportionately likely to be victims of violent crime. They have far less wealth and suffered much more in the housing crash and recession of the last eight years.

But that doesn’t mean that all members of these communities are in dire straits and in need of salvation by a politician making promises. The majority of black households, like white ones, are considered middle class. Black college enrollment rates now equal those of whites (but not graduation rates). Many of the most pressing issues to black and Latino voters are — guess what! — the very ones that are pressing to white voters.

By getting this wrong, Trump is broadcasting how little he knows about the communities he’s pretending to court.

Nor does he get that the demographic cleavages that persist are tied to the continuing impact of racist attitudes and once legal segregation and institutional racism. To black and Latino listeners, the omission screams volumes.

Trump’s outreach smacks of being contrived. If it were sincere, he’d be acting differently. I’d recommend that he sit silently among minorities in their own communities. Be the only white face in a church filled with African-Americans. Attend a Sunday service and a funeral of a beloved community member. Hang for another hour as people mingle upon leaving the sanctuary.

Sit around with a bunch of women making tamales and watch the interaction as members of different generations parade in and out of the kitchen. Talk to fourth-generation American with a Latino surname who doesn’t speak a lick of Spanish. Really hear his or her story.

People develop familiarity and comfort levels outside of their normal circles only through sustained interactions. Even very adept politicians can’t fake it. And Trump’s level of emotional intelligence is as low as his polling numbers with black and Latino voters.

In case it isn’t obvious, Trump isn’t really directing these appeals to African-Americans and Latinos. He is talking to white audiences, trying to dispel the air of racism that has hung around his campaign from the very start. The pity is that many of them don’t know any better.

    The real problem with what Trump actually said, is that is factually true. The cities and areas of this country with the worst violent crime rates, largest minority unemployment rate, largest per capita welfare enslavery are all run, and have been run, by Democrats for decades if not over a Century. I used to live in one, and every election cycle when a non Democrat was showing strong in election polls, the Democrat would throw out the old fear card, “if you vote for him/her, they will take your welfare” This has been a common theme since I was a young Godzilla, growing up in the rust belt.

    What I’m really not understanding is what exactly Trump said that ya’ll claim makes him a racist? Can one of you make an HONEST attempt at posting that comment (the actual comment, not some made up nonsense from the Daily Kos). Maybe the “Super predator” comment? No, that was Hillary. Maybe wanting a a better law that locks up even more minorities and for longer, for doing less? No, that would have already happened and Hillary endorsed it and her Husbands choice to sign the law. It has to be something…….but what?

    It can’t be about immigration, because he hasn’t stated anything but FACTS. Although I must question the actual number of illegal immigrants currently in the US, as 11 million was the number in 2008. After almost 8 years of neglecting US immigration laws and a Spring that brought an influx of millions, the number is probably closer to 30 million. I’m glad trump is evolving with his immigration stance. Build the wall, deport the criminal element of non citizens (including those here legally) and work with those that are working (and those that want to work). But, with all respect to those collecting government funds and NOT working or trying, your out of here. The welfare state has got to change.

    Oh, I almost forgot. The Grand Wizard of the KKK has stated that he will vote for Hitlary and her campaign has accepted more than 20,000 buck in political donations from known KKK members.

    I’m thinking ya’ll got this racist thing backwards. Your pointing at the wrong candidate.

      Are you implying some People would rather be on Democrat welfare rolls than work. If the welfare state has got to change as when Billl Clinton finally did so , then Bill and Trump are correct , in that more available jobs brought back to this country will actually raise all incomes. So Bernie and Trump are correct and Hillary is a loaner who is pandering to minorities and Hillary is also “racist ” in that she thinks minorities are only capable of wanting hand outs. Yes Hillary is a pandering , Bigot and is only trying to sucker in minorities for their votes . I know that minorities can see through this tactic.

        Nobody is falling for Donald Trump’s bullsh*t. For him to think he can spin this… “I didn’t say that, I said this” and have someone say… “Oh, in that case we’ll vote for you…” shows just how ignorant and out of touch he really is. Donald Trump cannot win without a huge block of the “Minority vote.” He need only ask Mitt Romney, who won 2/3 of the white vote and still lost in a landslide defeat. The numbers have changed.

          As trump says , minorities or Blacks have only to gain. I know for a fact he hires at many skill levels and many different peoples, even pretty women in executive positions and most of all even some Minority Heteros also. There is a silent voting block that can be illustrated by his packed rallies. These functions seem To raise more interest than older door to door methods used by Hillary . It worked for Bernie also. Hillary would have been beatened if the system was not rigged as pointed out by Debbie the Wassemann .

            The only reason that you do not see any gangs in your area is because you are frightening them and the state of NJ has a no nonsense Republican Governor , most of the towns in NJ do not tolerate gangs and take care of business. NJ is also one of the most wealthiest states and there are jobs if you need them. You may need two jobs in this state to pay high taxes , but it keeps out the riff raff . State retirement and road) trust funds have been pilfered over many decades for other than intended uses and the state is trying to correct itself. .

            Every notice that up north we earn high wages, have better benefits and you bums in the south and midwest still can’t make it even though Republican states eat up 65% of every annual revenue the rest of us pay for. Stop wasting time posting you lies. No one believes you.

The reason Chritie was elected in very democratic star is that no matter what party you belong to, the Demographics of NJ will always go against high taxes and school budgets . The residents have an attitude “paddle your own canoe”. As for schooling the residents feel that it is not teachers fault if the student is not performing and no amount of money can fix this, however the residents know the student has the responsibility to actually study, like Abe Lincoln by candlelight if necessary .consequently NJ has the highest ranking in the country for their attempt at educating the little miscreants . No more tax monies are needed just the students have to do their assignments .

      You are certainly right about him only stating FACTS about immigration. I never realized that Mexican immigrants were a bunch of criminals and rapists until he told us the truth about them. Who would have been aware of the plot to replace American jurisprudence with Sharia law had he not warned us? Who would have known about U.S. businesses having their products being made in foreign countries and then sold here depriving American workers of jobs and forcing them to accept welfare to survive while the businesses enriched themselves and enjoyed the privilege of living here? Who would have known that some companies refused to pay subcontractors forcing the subcontractors out of business and their employees out of work and into the welfare system? Who would have known that some companies became too big to fail in some states such as New Jersey and had to rely on welfare forcing the taxpayers to pay for the horribly managed businesses? You’re so right. Just the facts.

      I used to live in the Boston area, New York, and Chicago and never heard a politician say anything about “taking away welfare”. As I sit here as a minority having paying a six figure income tax bill, and knowing only hard working minorities my whole life, having seen the longest lines( of mostly minorities) lined up for an opprtunity to interview for MTA jobs and even when the Times Square M&M shop opened up, I believe you are biased and uninformed. In Chicago, there are a lot of jobs with various city agencies that are “patronage” jobs. Many of these are occupied by minorities. Democrats have controlled these jobs for decades. The fear that is disseminated when the issue of voting for Republicans comes up is losing city jobs.

      I know there are blacks on welfare, but the number of whites is larger. The only person I have ever known who was on welfare was a white female. For the 75% of African-Americans that don’t live in poverty, aren’t on welfare and going to work everyday including those who work more than one job, you and Trump do a disservice by judging us by the least of us, while judging whites by the most successful faction.

        Cher, I too have known some wonderful hard working minorities. Working at an inner city hospital, the majority of the non medical work was completed by minorities. I worked with them for 10 years in my term of employment there. You are correct, not all minorities want to be on welfare, nor do us crackers. Sadly, our governments, both State and Federal, make it far too easy.

        Your comment ” For the 75% of African-Americans that don’t live in poverty, aren’t on
        welfare and going to work everyday including those who work more than
        one job, you and Trump do a disservice by judging us by the least of us,
        while judging whites by the most successful faction”

        This is very interesting, considering all the stuff about how blacks are so oppressed that comes from the Liberal media and groups like Black Lies Matters.

        One thing about the claim of oppression of blacks, I fully agree with it. I stated that and the reasons in my original post. While I’m not a Republican or a Democrat, Trump, for all of his negatives, has the knowledge to get jobs to come back to the US. That I consider the biggest need in this country. Education would be next, because our education system is failing, especially in the inner cities. Fix those two things and the immigration issue will fix itself.

        One thing that has been happening is the welfare to work programs are coming back and working.

          First of all, liberal media is a term coined by conservatives. This same media is owned by major corporations ( hardly bastions of liberalism) and have always portrayed blacks in the most negative of images. We are all thugs, welfare cheats, and overpaid outrageous athletes to the mainstream media. Our achievements outside of the sports arena are rarely covered. I have never known an Aftican American that considers the media our friend. As to BLM, I don’t know anything about it. I am not sure that it is a true organization like the NAACP or Urbsn Lrague. I never hear any of my black friends or colleagues mention it or talk about it. It seems that conservatives are always posting things about it and use the organizations name in their headlines. When you read the related article which includes the police report there is no mention of organizational involvement, just a regular black criminal. I think many of the actions attributed to the organization are often bad people doing bad things and using the organizations name to “legitimize” their actions. I am not saying no such organization exists, I am just saying there is no depth to the reporting of their alleged activities. I can’t believe it’s a very large, comprehensive organization.

          I also disagree with your characterization of Trumps talents with jobs. I have an MBA and a CPA with over 40 years experience in very large organizations that include a top four CPA firm, major money center bank, healthcare and higher education. Trump does not know how nor is he interested in creating jobs here. His companies use workers in the Far East and Mexico. He gets special visas to bring in hotel workers from Eastern Europe rather than hire Americans in Florida. Many of the buildings with his name on them were not built by him but he received a licensing fee for using his name. He has no experience or understanding of true international trade. He has only ever worked for himself or his father. His father bailed him out of many of his business failures back in the 80’s. He is a great salesman of himself and his image. Most major banks will not do business with him as he is too high risk. That is why he has so much debt with Chinese financiers.

    This ego-maniac has to learn that socio-cultural attitudes, based on racial divides, cannot be changed by governance, even by someone who thinks he can fix everything himself. The change must come from within the communities. Contrary to his claim that he can fix socio-economic issues of non-white communities, he and his campaign have actually widened the racial divide with his off-the-cuff idiotic rhetoric.

        His Columbia transcript was not put under VIP (internal access limited to only a handful of executives) until that concept was created in December of 2011. I know, because I was one of those executives until my retirement in 2015. Prior to that any reporter could have tried to bribe any one of the dozens of junior employees to produce a copy. They may have and determined, as I have, that there was nothing to see there. He was a fine student. He graduated cum laude from Harvard Law which has a grade point standard so that could give you an idea of what his academic performance level was. As to IQ tests, people do not have them routinely.

        Also, the black community is part of the American community so any issues that exist with the minority of blacks who exist in the most impoverished circumstances should be tackled and addressed by society at large just as the issues of rural poverty and related hopelessness should.

      They have a lot to lose. First, your trying to court Blacks and Hispanics in an all White audience. Second, republican as a whole have been cutting funds to schools that these groups attend. Third, Trump is not really serious about helping anyone but himself. Fourth, the judicial system in this country for the most part have all Republican judges and sentenced minorities very harshly for simple crimes. They are more interested in filling prison beds than helping. So to answer you and Trump question, minorities have plenty to lose from both parties.

      Over the past 35 years we’ve had 3 Republican presidents and Republicans have controlled both houses of congress and the Supreme court for most of that time. So, if conservatives have the prescription for fixing the problems that beset minority communities, why haven’t they done it?

        I have no particular respect for Farrakhan, BUT he had a house full of black voters who were being told the truth about Hillary and Dems. TNM made the claim that blacks weren’t buying Trump’s comment about “what have you got to lose?”. Well guess what, they ARE buying. Just ask any black person “are race relations great today?”; “are you financially better off today?”. The list of if they’re doing great after almost 8 years of Obama and they will reply “no”.
        And there you low information crowd go again … name calling. Just because a person disagrees with a black person does not mean they are a racist. But being that you have such a low information intellect, I’m not surprised. In debates, name-calling is a sure sign that you are losing and boy does it ever show in your case!

I’m curious because I just asked them of a couple of my black co-workers and they agreed that, like any other such question, the answer depends upon who you ask. Some will say “yes” while others will say “no” and interestingly enough, they pointed out the fact that it doesn’t matter what color the person is.

            I would have to say there is an error in your statement that Blacks don’t care what the color of the person is. Blacks voted for Obama in higher numbers that they normally vote Dem. In many precincts, the tally was 100% (actually some recorded greater than 100%) of the vote for Obama.

            A clear sign you are losing an argument is when you resort to name calling. And you’re certainly losing this one. According to experts, race relations are the worst they’ve been in 50-60 years. The unemployment rate for blacks is near an all time high. The number of blacks on welfare is at a record number. The number of blacks on food stamps is at a record high. The number of blacks on unemployment is at a record high. High school dropout rates for blacks is near an all time high. Confrontations between blacks and police are resulting in more shootings and deaths. Oh, for sure things are way better for blacks than 8 years ago. I don’t know what they will do if they get any better.
            If anyone is professing hate, it’s Obama and his feelings for our country! And you’re claim that Trump is stupid, you will have a hard time proving that. He’s EARNED billions (he didn’t inherit his wealth – let’s see if you’re stupid enough to make that claim) and gotten millions of free publicity (Hillary has had to spend millions to get as much coverage). The list goes on and on.

            You are incorrect in EVERY statement. You have been listening to opinions rather than researching FACTS. Eight yr=ears ago we were suffering from the largest depression since the 1940’s due to deregulation of banks, continuous tax cuts to the rich, and TWO unfunded wars. Unemployment for blacks is NOT near an all time high unless you falsely count all the people who are not in the labor force because they are retired or still in school. The police are out of control due to not having proper oversight and poor training. Every other statement is from some talking radio heads opinion about how he “feels” or how he “sees things. None of it is based on solid facts. Therefore I stand behind my assessment that you really are stupid. Not name calling, statement of fact proved with your believing opinions over fact.
            And TRUMP absolutely was born with millions and is not a self made man. His father was a millionaire and many economists have said that if he had just taken his million dollars and invested it in a stock market fund, he would have far more now than he alleges he has. He has lost more than he has earned (four businesses bankrupt and he took down thousands of other Americans each time) and it is highly believed that the reason he is unwilling to show his tax returns is because he has borrowed heavily from Russian money men (Mafia) and that he has nowhere near as much money as he has claimed. He himself said that if he shows his returns, he WILL lose the election. Because it will prove to you ignorant supporters that he is lying.
            He is a lying egomaniacal conman and he is NOT intelligent. There has been no sign of it in any of his speeches, he speaks like a grade schooler, constantly repeating himself. losing his place, and never finishing a sentence. His political sound bites are unrealistic and wait…he lies more than any other candidate EVER and in this political season more than ALL the other candidates combined. That is not an opinion but a researched fact.
            So no, I have not lost an argument. But it really isn’t fair to continue this as you are obviously mentally handicapped.

            Must you prove you have no idea of what you are posting about? Race relations are the worst in 50 years. Police shootings (according to the media) are way up. The number of blacks on welfare and food stamps are at RECORD levels. The real earning power of blacks has eroded in the Obama years.
            The Obama recovery, if you can call it that, is the weakest, longest and worst in 60 years. Even Hillary made that statement when she was trying to get the DEM nomination. She was distancing herself from Obama. The economy’s latest growth is 1.1% and has been below 2% for Obama’s years. Blacks are beginning to catch on “they have not done so great under the Dems” so “what do they really have to lose”?
            Trump and his two siblings inherited $280 million. He converted his <$100 million to over 12 billion. His business bankruptcies did not involve his own money. If you start a business with partners, you set up an LLC to protect your personal assets. I guess you never heard of that.

            Trump just visited Detroit and the liberal media claims it will make no difference. However, other sources than the biased MSM indicate that Trump’s challenge of “what have you got to lose” is resonating with not only blacks, but many other minorities. They are beginning to ask themselves “if things are so good, then why do we have police issues and other racial divides”? The more minorities ponder their present situation, the more they will be tempted to switch to Trump. You have to be honest and ask yourself “do you really think Hillary is a warm and fuzzy person who cares for you”? The more the email and Benghazi scandals stay in the limelight the more her unfavorable ratings. Look for a slew of anti-Hillary ads beginning this week. Even now, Trump has pulled even in the polls and this is after Hillary’s blanket ads after the Dem convention. Hillary’s contributions have begun to dry up too and Trump has just started to purchase his ads.

        You didn’t make a point, unless you’re claiming that muslim is a religion of peace – NOT!
        You claim you’re a Christian so you should be very familiar with the following post:

        The Catholic Church – AN EYE OPENER

        Charity Hospital run by the Sisters of Charity in New Orleans,
        along with the Upjohn company developed the plasma system
        in the 1930’s that saved so many lives
        in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and in the Middle East now.

        During the Civil War most of the nurses were nuns.

        Even if you are not Catholic, this is eye opening:

        When the Catholic Church was founded in the United States,
        there were no hospitals.

        Today, one out of five persons in this country
        receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital.

        When the Catholic Church was founded,
        there were no schools.
        Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3 million students a day,
        in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities,
        in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools
        and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools.

        Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelter
        and educates more people than any other organization in the world.

        The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this
        and the tax payers would have to make up the loss.

        Also, all Catholic adoption services will come to an end…
        a human disaster.

        There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country.
        It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president.

        I am asking all of you to go to the polls in 2016
        and be united in replacing all Senators, Congress and the president
        with someone who will respect the Catholic Church,
        all Christian Churches of every denomination,
        the Jewish Synagogues and all other Religions
        and Temples with perhaps the exception of Islam.

        Mr. President, you said in a speech, “The USA is not a Christian Nation”. You are wrong – we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to worship and practice freely…something that Islam will never do.

        Oh, by the way Mr. President, on your MUSLIM HERITAGE in America ….Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, know of a Muslim charity, ever seen Muslims shaking hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, or ever seen a
        Muslim Candy Striper volunteering in a hospital?

        Have you ever seen a Muslim do much of anything
        that contributes positively to the American way of life?

        One more note….. in every church or synagogue,
        I have ever been in, in the United States,
        I have always seen an American flag.
        No mosques in the United States carriers or flies an American flag.

            You must be really odd then. A clinical pyschologist friend of mine tells me men masturbate at least once a day in the shower or when they are “drying it off” and after they’ve been peeking through the keyhole in Mommy and Daddy’s bedroom.

            The only schools in the south try to ram religion down student’s throats. So, you were one of the ones who didn’t get massacred at VA Tech? Or one of the ones in OK Timothy McVeigh didn’t take out? How lucky for you.

            You a gentlemen? A pissbag is more of a gentleman. Sorry if that southern gentlemen BS reeks of phony men trying to be oh so charming when all they really are after is a piece of tail.

            As for the Corn Pone Queens and their Dixiebelle comrades, most of them are only after an MRS degree so they don’t ever have to work. That’s a good thing. After all, their southern and midwestern “gentlemen” can’t stand women with brains.

            Shove Dixie up your trailer trash butt. I am a born and bred Yankee where this country’s history BEGAN.

        No one has ever presented any evidence that Clinton or anyone on her campaign ever questioned Obama’s birthplace, demanded to see his birth certificate, or otherwise suggested that Obama was not a “natural born citizen” eligible to serve as president. This is fact, it has been fact checked by both sides. You are an idiot and until/unless you begin to do some homework you will remain an idiot.

        Political rhetoric, pure and simple. But Bill and Hillary left there, when it became apparent immediately that the assumption wasn’t correct. Trump offered rewards for anyone who brings proof, and for 8 years Trump hounded the President even after he released his Birth Certificate. Trump insisted that the Birth Certificate was a fake. You cannot compare Trump’s actions against the President to that of Bill and Hillary.

So they made one and the fact it was made in haste was what allowed graphic experts to take it apart. It was made in Abobe products,in layers. The person who knew the facts about the birth certificate in Hawaii was a female official who was killed during a helicopter flight containing Mainland officials. Look it up.

      Bear in mind that the real target for the alleged reach out to African American and Latino voters were not those ethnic groups, but white women. The goal was to demonstrate a softer image of Trump that would appeal to women, and narrow the 19 point deficit that Trump has in that demographic group. It is not going to work, not only because his overtures were too cynical for anyone to believe, and because he already reversed course on the Latino “amnesty” deal, but because women have not forgotten all the insults they have heard throughout Trump’s campaign.

    Anyone who has EVER been to Trump’s Marina Casino or the Taj Mahal would tell you that 90% of the employees are immigrant workers. Now, they are striking in NJ casinos and Trump’s Vegas casinos.

    He is under investigation by the Justice Dept. and so he rushes to close these casinos and incidentally, gets away with not paying back wages he owes them.

    As for Trump and minorities, live in NY City and you’d have seen Trump acting as if minorities were some kind of potent rare disease. Why else hang out with Hugh Hefner in McAfee’s Playboy Mansion if not to keep distance from what Trump the Emperor considers the “Great Unwashed Masses.”

This is not a white problem. It’s a black problem. How about giving the well-meaning conservatives a chance to root out the evil few that give African-Americans a bad name, and just watch how quickly racism disappears. I walked through the ghetto today and had two encounters with African-Americans: one a very sweet young woman who exchanged greetings with me, and the other, two angry teens who were yelling MF this, and N**g*er that back and forth on the edge of doing violence to each other.

But who is being arrested? Blacks. Who is refusing to hire Blacks – rich White owned business. That is why some Blacks resort to criminal behavior and violence.

        You are right! It is a white problem too, but is the solution may be worse than the problem. Filipino President Roderigo Duterte is cleaning up the drug problem, and it seems to be working, but we have a legal system in the country that frowns on summary executions. There appears to be no commitment on the part of our law enforcement to put teeth into addressing drug proliferation. Do you have a solution, bearing in mind that demand is a sickness and trafficking is a crime, other than prison and/or enforced institutionalization? Do you know that few addicts ever recover, regardless of how many treatment programs they go through, and that most have their lives ruined. Treatment is pretty much hopeless. We need to PREVENT addiction from ever starting, and the only way to do that is to impose draconian punishments of the dealers. Unfortunately, they are predominantly black or Hispanic. Therein lies the racial disparity. Got a solution, smart guy?

        As for Hillary, Hillary understands what Hillary wants. Nothing more! If this deeply flawed, opportunistic bottom feeder ever becomes president, you will reap what you sow.

          Does this sound like a nefarious history to you??

          But that night in the theater two years ago at the Women in the World Conferance, the other six brave women came up on the stage. Anabella De Leon of Guatemala pointed to Hillary Clinton, who was sitting right in the front row, and said, “I
          met her and my life changed.” And all weekend long, women from all over the world said the same thing:

          “I’m alive because she came to my village, put her arm around me, and had a photograph taken together.”

          “I’m alive because she went on our local TV and talked about my work, and now they’re afraid to kill me.”

          “I’m alive because she came to my country and she talked to our leaders, because I heard her speak, because I read about her.”

          When Hillary Clinton stood up in Beijing to speak that truth, her
          hosts were not the only ones who didn’t necessarily want to hear it. Some of her husband’s advisors also were nervous about the speech, fearful of upsetting relations with China. But she faced down the opposition at home and abroad, and her words continue to hearten women around the world and have reverberated down the decades.

          She’s just been busy working, doing it, making those words “Women’s Rights are Human Rights” into something every leader in every country now knows is a linchpin of American policy. It’s just so much more than a rhetorical triumph. We’re talking about what happened in the real world, the institutional change that was a result of that stand she took.

          And this from the Sun Sentinel when they endorsed her candidacy and refused to endorse any Republican because the editorial board felt no GOP candidate was qualified:

          Hillary Clinton is smart, steady and able to rebound quickly from defeat. When her attempt at health care reform failed during her husband’s first term, Clinton worked with senators from both parties – Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican Orrin Hatch — to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which cut the uninsured rate of American children in half. More than eight million children have coverage because of the program.

          Critics who claim Clinton has no record of accomplishment despite her sparkling resume need to look closer at her record.

          She helped secure more than $21 billion for World Trade Center redevelopment. She led investigations into the health problems of 9/11 first responders. She promoted increased National Institutes of Health funding for research into cancer and asthma. She was the principal author of sanctions – particularly on oil imports to the European Union– that brought Iran to the negotiating table. She helped bring about a 2012 cease-fire between Hamas and Israel that headed off an Israeli
          invasion of Gaza. She named an “ambassador at large” for women’s rights.

          “Nearly every foreign policy victory of President Obama’s second term,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., “has Secretary Clinton’s fingerprints on it.”

          Hillary Clinton brings assets we’ve seen too little of this primary
          season — steadiness and experience at the highest levels of government.

            I remember her untiring work with the women’s rights groups all over the world. She was fighting for people in countries that would not be eligible to vote for her. That is real. I remember hearing a woman speak who had been burned over most of her body in 9-11. She was not expected to live. Senator Clinton spent hours by her bedside. First responders’ families said she contacted all of them personally. Trump’s charity work? He raised a lot of money for veterans and had to be shamed into parting with a small portion of it to the veterans. Lying Hiliary? The radical right has been throwing crap at her for ages and it hasn’t stuck and they have stinky hands. If we convict people because hearings were held against tham, how about Trump’s accusers saying he molested a 13-year-old girl and another woman is filing suit for harassment. It might be legal to take out six bankruptcies, but it sure isn’t honest. Lies? Trump says all latinos are murderers, rapists and drug dealers. Does he back up what he said with facts?

Like all teachers, then, he wore a suit to class. He removed the jacket and taught in his tie and white shirt sleeves. Behind me sat a Black boy. The teacher was passing his desk and there was a black streak on his sleeve. He looked at Billy and said, “Did I get that off you?” Everyone in the class but Billy and me, laughed. Billy never said anything. What could he say in a class of ignorant racist pigs. Now, my question to everyone is: Do you think Billy swallowing that hate might have given him an attitude? There were, and probably still are, areas that were worse than where I live. So what does these vc reasons think causes their anger? Wake up, America, racism is primitive and a product of real ignorance.

            Probably because of all of the Mexicans that Barack has let pour over the border.
            You say that Texas ranks 49th in “police protection”. In fact, the number is 27th. Interestingly, New York, New Jersey, Illinois and Michigan are ranked lower. I guess when we are permitted to carry arms down here we don’t need quite as many cops. 2009 statista.com
            Finally, you said that Texas has the highest number of public officials convicted of a crime. In fact, Texas has 2.1 to 4 public officials convicted of a crime per 100,000 population. That is a group of states numbering 22 and I noticed that 13 states are higher.

      Please cease exhibiting what you believe is true of all BLACK people, I do not reside in a ghetto none on my Four children live in squalid surroundings and none have been to prison. Grandchildren and Nieces are in major colleges. and have shot no one. Some are attorneys ,others are doctors. I also know many People of Spanish backgrounds who have experienced the same success.
      Where ever you receive you descriptions of minorities including other Ethnic groups is from uneducated sources bigots and racist.
      I do not believe all Whites kill their families or siblings which has been in the news the past few days yet has not gained the attention from the media as Black On Black Crime. So may you should not visit or maybe your environment is one of poverty or a step above. Because you said you walked to the neighborhood WHY.

        I suspect his story is a lie. The Black People I associate with are very well educated. I live near a nuclear facility and one is a nuclear scientist. One has four degrees – two doctorates, one is a psychologist and two are school teachers. We need more of them and less ignorant pasty people whose only claim to superiority is something they did not accomplish – the degree of color in their skin.

        No drugs = no drug addicts. I know some addicts. They are white and their suppliers are black. ALL OF THEM! Addicts are sick. They need treatment and protection from dealers. Dealers are scumbag criminals that need to be taken off the streets–forever!

      Weird, because statistics show that you’re 100% wrong.

      WTF is up with all these ignorant trolls and their names? It’s always the opposite of their actual nature.
      e.g. “Vo_Reason” apparently can’t use Google and has no reason.
      “InformedVoter” is just a joke. Last last time he was “Informed” might have been back when Nixon was president.
      and so on and so on..

      Here’s a hint, Troll brigade… Don’t make the rookie mistake of trying to convince anyone you’re intelligent, thoughtful or informed in your handle. It’s a dead giveaway and makes for excellent mockery.

      And “Vo_Reason”? Please change name to “No_Reason”.
      More accurate.

        Well Budjob, I respect your opinion. I feel Washington needs more than Trump’s bigotry to change direction. Sometimes it takes an unusual , unorthodox individual. I believe that person is D J Trump. Let’s watch that space!

          Apostol,Trump is an unorthodox individual you maintain? No,he is a full blown racist,and a dangerously evil individual! Any adult that could sit through an NSA briefing,and ask THREE TIMES why the US can’t use nuclear weapons,IS NOT wired correctly!!

    If Trump were serious, he would tell David Duke, White Supremacists, racist pigs, and anti government people – survivalists, that he does not want their support.

      Donald “The Fraud” Trump would never turn down support, which to him means more money for him. His campaign is a joke, he is just trying to rake in as much money as possible. I don’t believe he really wants to be President of the United States. Thank goodness the 50 to 55 million supports are not anywhere near a majority of the 150 million voters.

      Many of Trump supporters think of themselves as victims. Christina Reynolds says it best “But make no mistake about it: they are not victims. They include white supremacists, xenophobes, conspiracy theorists, and misogynists — mostly men, mostly white — and at their core, they believe that immigration and multiculturalism are threats to white identity. Anti-immigrant, anti-woman outlets like Breitbart News feed their outrage and sense of persecution all day long.Alt-righters wallow in resentment and victimhood over what these “intruders” are taking away — whether it be jobs, opportunities, or the freedom to feel inherently superior to another group.”
