Donald Trump made a valid point when he called out Obama this time. Trump has accused Obama of abandoning the needs of black people in the United States, and many black people agree that Mr. President Obama has not done enough for the black community. At a rally in Manassas, Va. Donald Trump said, “Obama, your African-American youth — 51 percent unemployment, right? You guys our age, they have unemployment that’s double or triple what other people have. What the hell has he done for the African-Americans? He’s done nothing. He’s done nothing. I don’t think he cares about them. He’s done nothing. It’s all talk, it’s all words with this guy.”
The truth is that black people expected more from president Obama. Eventually, black people got tired of hearing that it’s the Republicans fault, when he failed to use his power plenty of times to improve living conditions in America for black people. That never stopped the president from going to university’s and speaking down to the black college grads and pointing out the wrongs that black people do. It goes sort of like this, the president has stated that he is not the president for black people, but the president of the entire United States. With that in mind, it was not okay for the president to keep pointing out what’s wrong with black people during every opportune moment of his presidency. If the president fails to help improve conditions for a certain group of people, then he has no room to criticize them.
It was clever for president hopeful, Donald Trump, to point out Obama’s shortcomings with black people in the United States, but black people can also see through the multi billionaire real estate mogul. It’s no secret that during Obama’s presidency, him and Donald Trump were not friends at all. When the two get the opportunity to mention each others name, its kind of like a rap battle. President and Obama have even exchanged blows on Twitter. Imagine that, even presidents of the country are involved in Twitter beef now! You can definitely feel the hate on social networking media, even as the president of the United States, even president Obama has to deal with racism on social media. Literally, within a few moments of setting up his Twitter account.
Dealing with the same social construct of racism that black people in America go through daily, the president of the United States should understand implicitly, that the needs of African Americans go unmet far too often and as the first black president of the United States, should have felt compelled to do more for black citizens. That has always been my problem with president Obama. He is not the worst president of the United States as some say, because our country has had terrible presidents. But president Obama was in a position where he could’ve worked harder to make improvements to the country that black people could benefit from. Not welfare and food stamps, though that does help, but black businesses and social relations. Not sit quietly behind the scenes while pandemonium erupts.
“He’s an unbelievable divider,” the celebrity businessman continued. “I thought he’d be a great cheerleader for the country, that’s one thing I thought. I said he’d unify the country and he’s really divided the country. We’re going to unify the country and set records with the African-American vote.” What would you expect a racist to say? Though Trump’s point is still valid. When there is injustice and we do nothing, then we ultimately become the cause of that injustice.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t support Donald Trump any more than I could throw his ugly wig. I don’t believe he has any intentions whatsoever of helping black people in America, and certainly will not make more contributions than president Obama. In my opinion, Trump will be worst for black people, though he predicts he will gain at least 25 percent of the black vote. Polls don’t seem to indicate that. Sly Trump had to cancel a press conference where he planned to announce endorsements from 100 black pastors until the pastors set the record straight and all of them claimed that they have no intentions of endorsing the president hopeful. However, many of them did attend a rally and show their support. Don’t act like you are surprised that money can buy pastors!
