Why Black Folks Don’t Mess with Trump

So, last week you may have seen Republican nominee Donald Trump FINALLY reaching out to Black voters in a couple of speeches (all done in predominately white rooms) which was capped with him saying “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs. 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

This morning, Roland had Zerlina Maxwell from the Hillary Clinton campaign on to break down exactly why Trump’s pleas are falling on deaf ears — including his “birther” attack on President Obama and his calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “murderers.”

And then Trump campaigner Pastor James Davis had to open his mouth and ruin everything.

He started by saying that maybe Obama DESERVED the “birther” attacks because he wasn’t properly vetted and then went on to say that Black folks are essentially so busy being offended by Trump’s racist attacks that we can’t actually hear what he is offering. And while we celebrate black diversity of political thought, we had to reward the Pastor with a well deserved Jesse Williams gif:

TELL US: Does Pastor James Davis have a point? Are we too offended by Trump’s words to actually hear his policies?
