Explain to me why if you could never afford a thing in the first place, why you should have it in the first place. That's harsh, I know, but it's true.
Know that for a fact do you?
What a joke! PP doesn't operate in rural areas and many of those poor women in rural areas have been forced into monopolies or left without any health care coverage at all thanks to the ACA.
The pipeline you speak of is as much a cultural thing as anything else.
You can address this by seeing above.
But, of course, neither of us really knows how this will go down. We'll just have to see.
As a Black American man, I don't need a leader. That's part of the problem, people with the underlying need for someone else to tell them what they should be doing. Personal accountability is a helluva thing. And why is it that only the "Black community" needs someone to lead them? There is no leader for any other community that has or requires a "leader". I, as a man, am the leader and protector of my family. I think more Black Americans should share my attitude and stop looking for someone to lead them. Pops taught me very well.

1) Obama is NOT a popular president. I don't believe those numbers at all.
2) Blacks are worse off than they were 8 years ago. Obama didn't lift them up, he only held others down. Some may think this brings equality, but no. I suppose some people take comfort in seeing their friends fail. (paraphrasing Petyr Baelish) "Although, who doesn't like to see their friends fail now and then?"
3) The Black community doesn't need a Black Leader. It merely needs a leader. Trump is that man and if blacks choose not to rally behind him then that's their choice.

Are blacks better off than they were eight years ago?
I don't think so.
Lots of Obama Family Pictures hanging all around the homes, stores, and churches in the Black Community. The unemployment and crime rates are higher than they were when George Bush left office. But the psychological impact was positive.
So they are worse off but feel better about it?

Nonstop pointing out the color differences is merely a mask of distraction for people that don't experience all sides of life in their own life... at least that's what I witness.
Its all a rich/poor game... with only the color green at play... sometimes in money, other times in envy and greed. Keep bickering about what color people are and the cycles continue... start addressing each other as other humans, men, women, and children, and then we'll see a turn of focus to the real problems we face in society.

I think black Americans will be better under Trump. Obama created more racial division than I thought was possible, and sure didn't do much for either race,
