Something Strange Has Nearly Doubled In Black Communities With Trump In Charge [OPINION]

Published

on

As Democrats and leftist progressives continue to persist in their attempts to create a narrative of racism and bigotry for President Donald Trump and his supporters, if one actually considers facts they find this to be inaccurate. Many cite the fact that Trump was considered newsworthy for many years before he ever ran or even considered running for president. Yet in all those years, not even one time was he called racist or any variation thereof until he decided to run for president against Hillary Clinton.

Much like the myth that the Democratic Party helps minorities, the perpetuation of the myth of racism amongst Republicans and Conservatives is little more than projection. A fact which Rasmussen’s daily  Presidential Tracking Poll aptly demonstrated on Friday when it showed a significant spike in support from the black community.  This showed a near doubling of support for Trump among that demographic from this time last year with his approval rating among the black community hitting 29%. That is up from 15% in August of 2017.

Naturally, the haters were there to cry foul, yet with no facts to support them. Has-been comedian Kathy Griffin was the first to tweet in response calling the poll, “Bullshit.”

Some leaders in the community are simply not willing to perpetuate a narrative when the Trump administration is doing more than previous administrations with regards to the black community regarding record low unemployment numbers and a willingness to discuss such issues as prison reform.

President Trump met with inner-city pastors from all over the country Wednesday sitting down to discuss prison reform. Sen. Rand Paul (KY-R) has previously pushed for reforms to the criminal justice system, including expungement of felony records and restoration of voting rights. He cites the nation’s mandatory minimum sentencing laws disproportionately affect the black community, arguing reform would help reduce the federal prison population for non-violent offenders as well as restore “proportionality, fairness, and rationality to federal sentencing.”

Paul added –  “if I told you that one out of three African-American males is forbidden by law from voting, you might think I was talking about Jim Crow 50 years ago. Yet today, a third of African-American males are still prevented from voting because of the war on drugs.”

Paul has been joined by Sen. Mike Lee (UT-R) and Sen. Dick Durbin (IL-D) in his efforts to push for reform but those calls for reform have fallen on deaf ears, until now.

According to the Sacramento Bee (Yes, I know! I was surprised too!) –

“A prominent pastor from a North Sacramento church was among a group of black religious leaders who met with President Donald Trump this week at the White House.

Phillip Goudeaux of Calvary Christian Center on Del Paso Boulevard was among more than a dozen black religious leaders who sat down with Trump on Wednesday at a meeting that the White House said was organized to share ideas about prison reform and criminal justice.

Goudeaux and other participants now face a backlash for meeting with a president whose policies some argue have hurt poor people and African Americans.

At the event, the pastors widely praised Trump, with one participant calling him ‘the most pro-black president we’ve had in our lifetime,’ according to a transcript of the meeting provided by the White House.

‘This president actually wants to prove something to our community,’ said Pastor Darrell Scott of Cleveland Heights, Ohio. ‘The last president didn’t feel like he had to,’ Scott said of Barack Obama. ‘He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass.’

Trump talked briefly at the beginning of the meeting about his administration’s efforts at creating jobs, investing in distressed communities and helping former prisoners find work. Then he asked each pastor to speak.

Goudeaux’s remarks were brief. According to the transcript, he thanked the president for restoring “hope” to his constituents.

‘Please don’t give up on California and Sacramento,’ he said. ‘I’m right in the capital there, and we’re working in every area to try to make a difference in people’s lives. So, I guess the greatest word I can say for you, Mr. President, is that you have given this country expectations, given us a new hope, a new excitement to believe that things are getting better and are going to get better. And we appreciate that leadership, your tenacity to keep pushing in against all the opposition that comes against you. Thank you so much.’”

Despite the growing favor of the black community, the continued improvements regarding unemployment, and the willingness to discuss much-needed reforms that directly impact the black community, some in the black community refuse to see anything but the Democratic narrative. Much to their own detriment and that of their communities, these black men, and women – some community leaders in their own right – used this opportunity to publically shame and deride those that are brave enough to take a stand.

These people took to social media to lash out at Goudeaux’s choice to even participate in a discussion with the President, claiming his mere presence at the table was an endorsement of Trump administration policies, which they claim favor the wealthy and hurt minority communities.

The Sacramento Bee mentions Tre Borden, who works on urban revitalization projects in the Sacramento area. Borden used his Facebook page to post a photo of Goudeaux at the meeting calling him and other participants “shameless” and “contemptible” for the choice to take part in discussions with the White House.

Borden stated – “The majority of people in Phillip Goudeaux’s Del Paso congregation are poor and black. For him or any other black religious leader to align himself with Trump and his policies in this day and age is extremely distressing and hypocritical. How can he possibly think our current president is helping people who are on the margins of society?”

Former Facebook Security Chief Just Blindsided Google CEO With Earth Shattering Claim

Published

Many have been critical of Google’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, now a former Facebook executive has called out Google’s CEO for lying about the company’s motives.
Facebook’s former security chief Alex Stamos took to Twitter recently to attack Google CEO Sundar Pichai for his comments defending the company’s decision to move into the China market with its censored search engine known as “Project Dragonfly,” Silicon Beat reports.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Pichai stated that Google was “committed to serving users in China” and compared Chinese censorship laws to the “right to be forgotten” law in the European Union. Pichai received severe criticism for this comparison, both internally and from those outside of Google.

“Tech companies constantly walk a difficult path between complying with local law and protecting human rights,” Stamos tweeted Thursday. “For Sundar to compare the “right to be forgotten” (which I agree is problematic) with censorship in China is, at best, amoral and mendacious.”

Stamos further added that: “China’s censorship regime is a tool to maintain the absolute control of the party-state and is in no way comparable,” to the right to be forgotten law.

Google software engineer Colin McMillen tweeted: “It is extremely bad that Sundar appears to either think that RTBF is morally equivalent to government surveillance & censorship, or that he appears to think that nobody will notice this analogy is extremely inaccurate.”

WATCH: Entire Eagles Offense Does Incredible Gesture For Veterans- Kaepernick Probably Pissed

The Eagles offense struggled on Sunday night, and put up their fair share of bad plays. However, their celebration game was definitely on point.

The defending Super Bowl champs hosted the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Which, also happened to be on Veterans Day. While the first part of the game brought forth precious little in terms of offensive output. The second half saw a burst of scoring from both teams and, a salute to our veterans from the entire Eagles offense:

The NFL has certainly done its fair share of damage in tarnishing the celebration of our flag, anthem, and military, by protesting during the national anthem. However, with those protests having all but disappeared, it would be good for the NFL to work towards resuming its former place as the primary celebrators of our flag and country, in American sports.

Sunday night was a good start.
