about country under president who
more than 8 in 10 describe as ‘a

President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist. The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.

It's as if we're living in completely different realities. Donald Trump aims to improve things for all of us, and has produced unprecedented opportunities for black people. Meanwhile, the openly racist Obama fomented all sorts of racial strife, produced record numbers on food stamps, and is a cherished icon to them. Is the problem that Trump is white?

There is no problem with Trump. This is pure , 100% Fake News. The Dems are panicked about losing the black Americans votes who serve the interests of the Democrat Plantation.

So, 8 in 10 Black Americans are incapable of changing the channel or stepping outside into the real world? I don't buy it.

Ask a black man or woman who has become employed in a good job what they think about Trump. Then go to any of your democratic run cities and pole the crack heads and street thugs what they think. And what they are going to sell their vote for....

Unbelievable. I would bet the people polled were majority democrats. And the questions were manipulated in such a way as to get the answers they wanted. Would not be surprised if the Wash Poo just pulled these numbers out of the blue to push their racist agenda. They are scared that more black Americans are seeing through the generations of democrat lies and deceit I think race relations are much better with Trump as President. Certainly better than with Obama who didn’t seem to care about African Americans except to use them to divide and foment anger. Trump sincerely wants to help all Americans. Black people can clearly think and see for themselves that the country is doing much better under Trumps leadership. My prayer is that more and more people that didn’t vote for him before, no matter what color, across this country will be voting for Trump this coming November.

Another kind of push poll? This is complete garbage. The black vote for D's is steadily diminishing and articles like this are not going to help them. All they have left now is propaganda, but fortunately people are getting smart.

Its impossible for those of us who are not caught in the Trump Derangement Syndrome to fully grasp the level of delusion and visceral dislike that grips the people that are caught up in it. They claim it is because he is racist even when they can't point to a single word or deed he has ever done that would support that belief. His principal crime is seeing Obama as a failure both in foreign and economic policy and not giving him the "respect" as the first black president that they believe he should receive. Trump is blunt and effective in his populist disparaging of the prior administration and blacks see this as pandering to his white working class base whom they believe just want to get back at Obama for his eight years in office. Its a very deep form of tribalism and it blinds them to what is actually in their own self interest like economic prosperity and protection from illegal immigration and drug crime. What they truly hate is that Trump with all his self made wealth and political power does not apologize or defer to the power of their carefully crafted moral weapon of eternal victimhood. Unless Trump and all white Americans perpetually express their guilt for the sin of slavery and beg forgiveness for the moral blindness and ignorance of past generations they are clearly racist to their core. In a just world the sins of the father should never be visited upon the son. The Bible invokes this phrase only with respect to those who would worship false gods and is used to threaten heretics. It does not mean the bad acts of one prior generation should be used to justify punishing their offspring. Slavery, like racial eugenics and ethnic cleansing, are atrocities of those that commit or allow them to be committed and not their innocent children.

8 in 10 blacks may be pessimistic about the country, but many of them are blaming Democrats. They know they are being used. There is plenty to be pessimistic about: - The entire Democratic field for President is unfit to govern. All they do is pander for money and votes. Meanwhile there are Democratic billionaires out to buy the office of President. - The Democrats in Congress are abusing their power running an impeachment scam instead of governing. There is plenty more, but none of it has anything to do with Trump. He's the bright spot in our government. The Washington Post isn't publishing news. Its publishing propaganda hoping they can tell people what to think. People know better, and are tuning out our propaganda media.

So only 7% of African-Americans approve of Trump? I am more inclined to believe the three separate polls from several weeks back -- not cited in the WaPo propaganda piece -- putting the figure in the 33-34% range, unprecedented for any recent GOP President or candidate.

I wish there was an ALT channel with a political show that did things like street interviews of every slug who writes lies for the Washington Post. The defense of their lies or the running away would be entertaining to me. Jessie Waters does it once in a while and the process of seeing sudden cowards out of big mouthed leftists is big fun. Also maybe challenges to Post garbage like this, money bets or other polls disproving their nonsense. Also when are the slime from the Post going to apologize for them totally missing the call for the last Presidential election? On that score I'd love to see a question to the actors like Tom Hanks about his statements prior to the last vote. They love to talk, let's talk about that bias.

Chick-fil-A airport ban costs San

The city of San Antonio has been forced to fork over more than $315,000 in legal fees stemming from its decision to ban Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the San Antonio International Airport, according to a local report. The city council voted in March to block a proposed Chick-fil-A restaurant at the airport over the chicken chain’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.” The ban inspired the Texas Legislature to draft the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law in June, and state Attorney General Ken Paxton opened a federal investigation into potential religious discrimination.

Ahmad Hamzeh made the declaration Tuesday during a speech to parliament in Tehran, although it’s unclear whether it has any backing from Iran’s top leaders, Reuters reported, citing the ISNA news agency.“On behalf of the people of Kerman province, we will pay a $3 million reward in cash to whoever kills Trump,” Hamzeh was quoted as saying.
