Today’s highly interesting read (06/26/19): Can Trump Actually Win the Black Vote?

The question sounds absurd. But Roger L. Simon, co-founder and CEO emeritus of PJ Media, makes a case.

It’s not quite as crazy as it sounds and he should give it a serious shot.

He should go into the black community as often as possible and make his case. This would be using identity politics in order to destroy it. (A noble task. Good riddance.)

Trump clearly has a good case to make — black and Hispanic unemployment are at their lowest numbers ever. These stats have been repeated so often a good portion of these minorities already knows them. But there’s no harm in repeating and making sure.

There’s also no harm in repeating that for a human being, any human being, a decent job is far better than welfare, better for the soul and better for the pocketbook.

  1. Stephen A. Smith wrote a thought-provoking article on this topic:

    “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a damn about you.’ They’re telling the other party ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself ‘disenfranchised’ because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb

    Blacks Should Vote Republican

    NASHVILLE, TN – On March 24, 2015, ESPN regular Stephen A. Smith spoke at the Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University on the topic of “How You See It: Perceptions of (In)Equality.”

    Smith believes that every black person in America should vote Republican at least once so that both parties could address their interests.

    “What I dream is that for ONE election, just ONE, every black person in America vote Republican,” he said. “Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.”

    He also added, “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a damn about you.’ They’re telling the other party ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself ‘disenfranchised’ because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb. The other party knows they’ll never get you and nobody comes to address your interest.”
