Bet you’d never thought you’d see the day when Trump, the man FALSELY portrayed as a racist bigot by the mainstream media, would be gaining massive support in the young Black male demographic…
But he is.
While we can’t always put our faith in polls and projections, it’s being projected that Trump will be getting 19% of the young Black male vote, representing a 5% jump from 2016.
What has happened since then?
Well, Trump has done some absolute wonders for the Black community. His prison reform First Step Act, his Opportunity Zones, the lowest Black unemployment numbers EVER, higher wages, inner-city development…all done to benefit minorities specifically.
When you sit down and really go over everything Trump has done for the Black community, it’s a wonder that he isn’t getting closer to 50% of their vote.
Blame that on the image the mainstream media created for him…or blame his lack of eloquence when stating how he feels about American whiteness.
Either way, the fact remains that, overwhelmingly, the Black community votes Blue.
Why Trump Is Changing Minds
Now, that’s a little mindboggling when you think about it because the Republican Party has ALWAYS been the party of freedom and has fought for the Black population while the Democrats have always fought against them and their best interests.
LBJ’s snow job worked wonders, and we’re seeing the repercussions of that snow job working today.
But Trump is closing the gap—only slightly, but closing it nonetheless.
One of the most influential voices of the Black community, Radio Host Charlamagne Tha God, explained to CNN host Don Lemon why this is, saying in an interview, “When it comes to those black people you see who may be showing support for Trump, I just think because Trump is actually talking to young Black male voters.”
It’s amazing what happens when somebody ACTUALLY talks to the people he’s looking to represent as the President of the United States – and Trump is making sure to talk to ALL Americans.
What a weird and foreign concept…but only if you’re a Democrat.
Charlamagne continued, “He’s directing ads towards them. They are a group that, you know, never gets courted. I mean, black people don’t get courted either as a whole, but that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think that everyone else in the black community, the black family is supposed to fall in line … they think the rest of us all speak the same language. So Trump is targeting young Black males. And promo ad and marketing, it works.”
Yes… it works.
But there’s another reason besides Trump’s willingness to communicate with Americans of EVERY color that is winning him voters.
It’s his attitude.
Trump’s A Man’s Man And Black America Can Relate!
Black sportswriter Jason Whitlock explained this on a recent appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show, saying, “I think we have been carrying on a facade for three-and-a-half years as black men that somehow we can’t relate to Donald Trump, that we didn’t celebrate him in hip-hop music for decades, that he wasn’t friends with countless black athletes, entertainers, celebrities.”
People tend to forget that.
Even people like Sean “Puffy” Combs who now denounces the president as a racist and bigot used to hang with the Donald at parties when it suited him. Same with Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
The Black community used to love Trump until the mainstream media painted him as a racist and bigot.
Whitlock also pointed out that Trump’s “masculinity’ and his penchant for eschewing political correctness were “things that a lot of black men can relate to.”
It’s something a LOT of men can relate to…
Many American men—regardless of color, race, or creed—can’t STAND political correctness, so is it any surprise that this scores points with ANY racial community?
Of course not…
Trump is gaining voters because they’re starting to realize that Trump really IS good for them and good for America.
We just need to start working on those white Liberals. Maybe we can knock some sense into them before November 3rd.
We can only hope, right?
