just what a racist would do

Trump lifts a ban on federal funding for historically black, faith based colleges.

Right out of James Earl Rays playbook, eh?

His mouth and his tweets are routinely obnoxious, offensive, with an Archie Bunker-esque style. When heís angry, he says and tweets things that are insensitive at the very best, genuinely offensive at worst.

But why would a racist white supremacist, do this?

iíd love to see us somehow get back to the unity we had in the immediate aftermath of the post 9/11 era, where we really felt
like we were one nation under god, regardless of what we each did in the voting booth. Trumps
rhetoric doesnít move us on that direction for sure.

But his mouth isnít what weíre about. This is what weíre about.

Could it be he realized his 2020 campaign needs more than just immigration to fall back on, even if the economy holds.

The greatest bolster to his 2020 campaign is simply the opposition.

GS, is this a good thing Trump did? does it help blacks, or hurt them?

So if you do 1 good thing for blacks it makes you not a racist? If you do 1 racist thing, does that make you a racist?

black unemployment at an all
time low, thanks in part to trump

he signed major criminal justice reform which disproportionately benefits blacks.

his tax changes included a 100% increase in the standard deduction, meaning more people pay zero taxes, which disproportionately benefits blacks.

one thing, Paul?

TDS has you, too.

And yet you are on here more than anyone else, constantly arguing with people day in and day out - 7 days a week. Doing all you can to defend Trump (I know you don't like his foul mouth - big deal bc u constantly complain about 1 thing Hillary said). Showing hypocrisy w/all the things you used to whine about w/Obama that Trump has taken to extremes.

Why don't you complain that Trump hasn't released his transcripts (he even threatened to sue any school that does) when you used to whine about Obama not doing that.

And I have TDS - look in the mirror

Maybe he has a guilty conscience.

You are distracting. Again. There is a transcript. There are documents. The IGIC says this is all credible. Try focusing on that.

But you constantly are on here discussing Trump. More than anyone. So who has TDS?

So if you are a racist and do 1 thing that benefits that group, that makes you not a racist (and vice versa)?

And what exactly did Trump do to help black unemployment? Did he have a hire a black day?

Paul, when i brought up obamas transcripts, it was in response to liberals mocking bush and mccain for their grades.

i agree with you, letís come
up with a common set of rules for disclosing tax returns and transcripts, and apply them evenly to all candidates.

i never cared about obamas transcripts, i donít think college GPA says a lot about ones ability to do that job.

i donít start piss about trump
anywhere near as often as pete, not even close.

who has tds? those who canít see past their hatred of him, to see the productive things heís done. that would include you.

trump helped unemployment for
everyone, by stimulating the economy with pro business tax cuts ( possibly too pro business), especially the cutting of corporate tax rates. remember all the companies that said theyíd invest in growth? that means jobs. it may surprise you, but some of those jobs will go to blacks.

unemployment is down, wages are up. that is generally considered a good thing, even when you dont happen to like the current president. trump did some bold things, obviously they had an effect.

they also probably added significantly to our debt, and that's the other side that needs to be discussed, as itís a serious issue.

Do his posts cover items of importance? We had 8 years of taking about whether putting someone's legs on a desk or wearing a tan suit dishonors the office.

specific to blacks, meaning something that whites canít utilize? no, he didnít. but blacks are disproportionately (if not exclusively) benefitting from some of his programs.

i am sorry if that fact bothers you. but itís still a fact. and itís a fact to be proud of, isnít it?

What is wrong is the hypocrisy of you complaining about how much someone else posts when you prob. post more than anyone else?

The fact is that you have frequently touted black unemployment and implied Trump had something to do with it but when pressed to explain what he exactly did to help out blacks can't come up with anything.

Trumps programs,including tax changes have spurred more employment. This means more opportunities regardless of color. The first step act directly benefits blacks also. Pay attention and become informed. The blinders are making you less so.

he saying that because a white kid could attend that school
and benefit, that this isnít ďfor blacksĒ. these are the best arguments they can come
up with. itís stunning. unless the law says ďno honkeys are allowed
to benefitĒ, it doesnít count.
