Honestly, son, when is enough really enough? How much bullshit can one man spew before people see him for who he is? At this point, I legitimately can’t take anyone who supports Donald Trump seriously. For me, anyone deciding to give this guy their vote has already told me everything I need to know about them. Furthermore, in my eyes, any minority who’s onboard with Trump’s platform is either oblivious or complicit to his inflammatory language. In any case, his latest pitch to Black people further crystallizes the fact this man CANNOT be our next president.
Now, this past Monday, at a rally in Akron, Ohio, Trump decided to “speak” to Black people in front of a mostly-White audience. According to him, living conditions for the Black community are so horrendous in this country, we’d be much better off by voting for him. In his depiction of our current state, he insinuated our lives are nothing more than complete hellholes. He brought up poverty, bad education and crime at “levels nobody has seen” as some sort of justification for why we need him. In his eyes, all of these “events” have occurred under the watch of the Democrats. With that being said, apparently, the only way for us to have our slice of the American Dream is to elect him into office.
Look, I have SO many issues with his statements I don’t even know where to start, son. First, his depiction of Black life in America is DRASTICALLY exaggerated. Even during an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, he tried to pass off some fraudulent statistic about 40% of African-Americans living in poverty. When Cooper corrected him by saying the percentage is actually 26%, Trump’s reaction was to say there wasn’t a big discrepancy between the two numbers. Is this dude fucking kidding, man? A difference of 14% is a HUGE difference if these are the “facts” he’s using to justify his half baked theories. He’s essentially trying to say almost half of the Black people in this country are living in poverty, when in actuality, the number is much closer to a quarter. In addition, how can he blame the Democrats for all of our “issues” when instances such as the crack epidemic and Rockerfeller Drug Laws happened under Ronald Reagan and Nelson Rockerfeller, respectively? In case Trump forgot, both of those individuals were very Republican, man. Basically, these hugely, and negatively, influential time periods happened under Republican watch. Trump can thank his own party for a good portion of the poor treatment my people have faced in this country.
Next, how dare this man try to have this type of conversation in a room full of White people. He doesn’t have the wherewithal to come to our communities and talk with us directly, but thinks it’s alright to pass judgment in front of our Caucasian counterparts? To make matters worse, Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, came out and said Trump won’t visit Black communities because it wouldn’t be a “safe environment.” Good fucking Lord, man, the hits just keep on coming! So, this presidential nominee is asking for our vote and somehow thinks thoroughly disrespecting us is the right move? I literally can’t comprehend how he or his aids think. He’s spreading fallacies while berating us and this is somehow supposed to endear him to our people? Get this fool the flying fuck out of here, man.
Finally, in the coup de grâce of asshole, this past Saturday, Trump brought the tragic killing of Nykea Aldridge into the political atmosphere. Now, for anyone who missed this, Aldridge is Dwyane Wade‘s cousin who was hit by a stray bullet during a gang shooting in Chicago. Horrifically, the mother-of-four was pushing her youngest child’s stroller when the incident occurred. Now, instead of simply sending condolences to her family in their time of grief, Trump used this situation as an opportunity to send another pitch to Black people. According to his logic, her death is somehow “proof” Black people will vote for him. All jokes aside, I’m so offended by this ploy that I can’t properly put it into words. There is absolutely NO depth this man won’t sink to. This woman just passed away and he couldn’t wait to politicize her death. On the real, disgusting doesn’t even begin to describe this type of tactic, son. I’m convinced this clown doesn’t have a soul at all.
All in all, fuck this dude, man. There’s really no other way for me to say it. In addition, fuck anyone who supports Trump too. In all seriousness, if I have a personal relationship with you and you support Donald Trump, lose my number, unfollow me on social media and forget any other form of communication. This isn’t about politics anymore. This man is a toxic human being and I refuse to associate with anyone who indulges in his brand of divisiveness. Good day.
