Donald Trump Thinks Black Communities Have Never Been Worse Off

Disregarding slavery, lynching and centuries of historical injustice, Trump declared African Americans have never been worse off than they are now.

In another tone-deaf attempt to court black voters, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump disregarded the litany of atrocities committed against African-American communities and declared this is the worst shape they have ever been in.

“We're going to make our country wealthy again,” the racist billionaire told a largely white crowd on Tuesday. “We're going to make our country safe again. We're going to rebuild our inner cities because our African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before, ever, ever, ever.”

Ironically, as The Huffington Post notes, the bigoted business mogul made this comment in Kenansville, North Carolina — a city named after a slave owner.

“You take a look at the inner cities, you get no education, you get no jobs, you get shot walking down the street,” Trump continued. “They're worse, I mean honestly, places like Afghanistan are safer than some of our inner cities.”

If the Trump campaign is still wondering why the White House hopeful does not resonate well with black Americans, they should perhaps try reading up on the centuries of historical injustices this community has endured — including slavery, lynching, segregation and Jim Crow laws.

It is also pertinent to mention that the GOP candidate conveniently forgot to mention the recent police shooting of an unarmed African-American man, Terence Crutcher, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
