Whose Policies Are Better For Blacks?

As you noticed, Donald Trump is making an appeal for the Black vote, telling blacks specifically what the problems are in their communities and putting the blame on Democrats in a manner you never hear from Republicans. Democrats have locked down the black vote since the 70’s, and what has it gotten blacks? Take a look at Democrat run cities, and the violence, the unemployment, the poverty, the poor schools for blacks.

(NY Post) Hillary Clinton claims that some of Donald Trump’s appeal is “xenophobic, racist, misogynistic.” On Thursday she asked, “If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?”

But who actually cares more about blacks, in particular poor blacks?

On everything from education to jobs to crime, Trump’s policies offer a lifeline to people who have been losing ground for decades. Hillary’s policies will just exacerbate them. And no amount of speeches will change that.

On education, Trump strongly supports school choice. This would give inner-city blacks a way out of horribly performing public schools. Clinton attacks charters and clearly opposes other forms of school choice, opting to protect teachers unions at the expense of students.

And who’s harmed the most by illegal immigration? Who’s most likely to suffer unemployment or wage reductions due to the added competition? Young, unskilled blacks and Hispanics. The biggest beneficiaries? Wealthy people who get to pay less for lawn care and housecleaning.

When it comes to crime, blacks and Hispanics are often trapped in the high crime areas created in Democratic Party run cities by Democratic Party policies. Hillary wants to release more felons from jail. Trump wants to increase police support in the high crime areas. Hillary supports Black Lives Matter and their hatred of cops, and wants to make the jobs of police more difficult. Trump supports the police.

Hillary supports making it more difficult for people living in these high crime areas to obtain a firearm to protect themselves and their families from the very crime created by Democratic Party policies. Trump supports citizen’s rights to own a firearm.

Democrats clearly haven’t served blacks well, and more of the same isn’t going to help. If blacks are willing to listen to Trump, his logical arguments may have a real chance of winning them over.

Of course, the media is spinning furiously for Hillary and Democrats, because, somehow Trump policies that would provide school choice, better education opportunities, better job opportunities, lower crime, a higher standard of living, safer communities, and so forth, essentially rolling back all the damage done by Democratic Party policies, would be bad. Well, bad for the elections of Democrats. They treat blacks (and Hispanics, gays, etc) simply as a voting block, not as people with hopes and dreams. They take them for granted. Dems promise government largess, and have failed the black community.

As Trump said “What do you have to lose by trying something new?”
