Notice how both those statements can come from the same set of facts? Yet one is unquestionably racist and the other in an actual attempt to discuss a problem.

The motive behind comments, the suggestion of their cause are important factors in judging comments. So let's stop acting like Trump's comments are ever meant to line up w/ the latter example.

Lol, that’s some sorry ass attempt at justifying your “racism” charge.

With record low unemployment for black folk... sounds like Trump did more than discuss the problem.

Will people ever learn to look at the activity, and not the talk with Trump?

Black unemployment is not by Trump's design. Your ilk literally says Obama did NOTHING for the Black community. And now you want to say we should thank Trump for not adding any new legislation or resources for Black communities and just piggybacking off Obama?

I guarantee if Trump could have his way, he'd take every job that was added in Baltimore and move it to Boise.

Trump always claims that. What exactly did he do that achieved that? What program did he institute?

Kellyanne Conway did admonish us to ignore Trumpís words and instead look into his heart.
