Something new

In trying to reach out to the African American voters, Donald Trump has been talking sense. He said: “What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs. Fifty-eight of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

Donald Trump’s comments made me think of East St. Louis and our own metro-east. His comments are very reflective of East St. Louis and the metro-east. What he described is also a prime source of crime. Unlike any other office-seeker, Donald Trump has the courage to tell it like it is concerning the predicament of African Americans. His comments and his outlook should be a source of hope and inspiration to African Americans.

Anyone who would oppose Donald Trump and his comments concerning African Americans must want the situation with African Americans to remain as it is. Trump talks sense and seeks change.
