I believe her, that she was not trying to be racist.
Her words showed that she is a natural, and no trying was necessary.





That's a given, still it's fascinating reading all the excuses people are trying to make for her.



It's also fascinating how fast people yell racist when they have never met that person. It's almost like they want it to be, what was that phrase again, Guilty until proven innocent. The left really should come up with with some different game plans.




Sure thing brah, keep making excuses for thinly veiled racism if it makes you feel better about yourself.

Me. No excuses. I am simply saying it's not racist. That's not an excuse. It's a statement.

How can that comment not be racist if it solely concerns blacks registering to vote? Are blacks not a race? Is that what you're saying?

Did she say anything derogatory about blacks? Is simply saying "blacks" racist?

Racism is just a catch word now. It means practically nothing anymore.

When blacks quit calling THEMSELVES African-Americans, quit instituting black-only groups, insitutions, and organizations, stop expecting favorable treatment based solely on their color, then EVERYTHING is going to sound racist to them and those that buy into this hyped-up narrative.

They are the ones that insist on black this and black that. They see everything in color. Politicians, especially Democrats, have done a big disservice to them.

In fact, I will go so far as to say they are racist against themselves, and most don't even realize it. Some are waking up and beginning to get it. That awakening is scaring the hell out of the Democrats.

Under what definition does it solely have to be derogatory??

First we hear that apparently she didn't commit an act of racism, so it's no concern, now it's, she has to be derogatory? She clearly singled out blacks in her concern for registering to vote. Can't be any more clear cut.

Blacks single themselves out then expect others not to follow suit.

Then Trump comes along out of the blue and actually helps them.

300 years of slavery and Jim Crow laws, where blacks were literally not even considered full-persons under American law at one time, and you wonder why to this day they've become a community unto themselves?

Dred Scott v,. Sandford

Is the above the fault of blacks? Please, enlighten us.

I guess the question is was she being racist or just understands that Blacks vote 90% democrat. About 900k blacks live in Mississippi and if 200k more voted they could swing the state blue.

You don't know?

This was back in Aug 2017 so a starting point...

Chicago Tribune

Criminal justice reform, First Step Act, and still working on it.
Permanently reauthorizes and provides $255 million in annual mandatory funding for Historically Black Colleges.

Nov 2019


Since Donald Trump’s inauguration, the U.S. economy has created a whopping 1,017,000 new jobs for African Americans, including many right here in Ohio. Today, the national black unemployment rate is at an all-time low of 5.5 percent. Unemployment for black women is even lower, at just 4.4 percent. More importantly, the overall black-white employment gap is smaller than it has ever been. It is great to see so many African American men and women back in the workforce.

In addition, President Trump’s “Opportunity Zones” initiative is spurring even more economic growth in underdeveloped communities around the country. Through targeted tax incentives, the initiative is projected to generate approximately $100 billion of new private investment in communities that need it most.



School Choice is huge too to get minorities out of bad school for a better chance.

I would like you to compare these to Biden's 40 years of what he done for minorities...lol

Criminal justice reform
Did what, for any particular minority? And maybe he should have a talk with his DOJ about it.

The Justice Department’s attorneys are now trying to argue that some of the people released early through the First Step Act with drug charges should return to prison.

More funding for black colleges is good but he is not the only one who has done that.

Context matters here. Inflation, funding on the heels of an economic downturn, the composition of Congress and budget priorities for job creation and healthcare are elements critical for any analysis of either president’s HBCU support.

Unemployment? I don't see that Trump actually did much of anything, for anybody.

All a by product of a better economy under him, and he owns it since it was on his watch. He owns the pandemic numbers too if he does not fix it a good deal, but his power in opening states up is rather limited.

How long are you going to hold onto hatred and resentment?

Find it in your heart to forgive those African tribal leaders that sold their own people to slave traders. Then, try to forgive those that bought them. Then try to forgive the people of the world at the time for having slavery as a common practice.

America took steps, one by one, to rid ourselves of this practice and prejudice. It took blood and leadership. This road is our shared journey...together. Our history is ours, intertwined together. We are Americans together.

We overcame. I have seen recent interviews of several blacks in recent months that said they have never felt discriminated against, while others only want to talk about their perceived injustices. We are all guaranteed the right to pursue happiness, and most of us, black or white, are busy in that pursuit.

Blacks are leaving the Democrat party (Blexit) as they wise up and realize how historically it has been the Democrats that pander and use them and treat them like some fragile hyper angry bunch that need pacifying.

Those that are stirring this sh*+pot should be made to lick the spoon at some point.



Have you ever noticed, Trump doesn't pander to them. He talks to them and treats them no differently than anybody else. He understands that a healthy economy, a strong job market, lower taxes, border security, and law and order benefit all of Americans.

Let's just say he didn't break it.

Are you sure?

Asked what provision gives the president the power to open or close state economies, Trump said: “Numerous provisions. We’ll give you a legal brief if you want.”

“The authority of the president of the United States having to do with the subject we’re talking about is total,” Trump said at a White House news conference on Monday. “I have the ultimate authority”
