Trump: “What do you have to lose by trying something new?”
African Americans should be wary about supporting Donald Trump for any public office because he does not have our best interest at heart. Public service means service to everyone you are elected to serve.
In the case of Trump, his constituency would be broken up into Black and White, and further divided by class among the non-White constituents.
They would be divided by Mexican, Muslim, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, Caribbean and others. The White constituency would be given preference followed by the non-Black others and finally the Blacks.
Trump has lots of racial history to support this theory.
In 1970, the Trump organization was cited by the Department of Justice for housing discrimination. His rental agents were told to mark all applicants by Blacks with a “C.” Of the 16,000 apartments controlled by Trump, only 700 were rented to Blacks in select locations. His organization faced this same charge again in 1978.
