The university I went to, there were a relatively high percentage of Republicans. Vast majority of African-Americans who went to my university were not fans of the GOP. Many Black people that I know who don't like Trump didn't go to college at all. So far, I've met 1 (ONE) Trump supporter, and he has since recanted his support.

Black people don't need the universities to teach them to hate the GOP. Have you ever considered that maybe the universities are not to blame? Ever consider that maybe White liberals aren't to blame?
I doubt you've had much interaction with Republicans.

You like to act like you speak for other black people.

Excellent approach, but make sure you supplement! Libraries are free. Make sure your kids read A LOT of books, and not just fiction. Fiction has its place, as the classics explore important themes, but non-fiction (biographies, historical non-fiction, subject matter textbooks, etc.) frequently tells the truth that your kids won't get from the school's frequently agenda-ridden curriculum.

No telling only the brown people who are critical of the president to "go home" is racist. He has plenty of critics who are white men, who are also born in other countries, but he has never said those things to them. Not even Ted Cruz or John McCain who he has certainly criticized. But those people, those white people, don't get the "go home treatment". That is what makes it racist.

that's hilarious coming from a guy who constantly repeats the trump-called-Nazis-good-people lie.

[quote=tipsyguam;55889472]are the hypocritical Democrats going to give Joe a pass for this very obvious racist statement?







racist statement. Do black people not know the KKK came from the Democrat party and thats the party that fought to keep slavery.[/QUOTE]

Back in those days Republicans were referred to as The N word lovers. Its probably where the term came from. That was a long time ago. It looks like the left shoe is on the right foot and the right shoe is on the left foot today, yes?

Absolutely! We all enjoy the library,yard sales as well for books. We have a bookshelf in our room and a bigger one down stairs for the kids...my son is a science and math person I got him an old manual on electric transfomers and he devoured the thing! He wants to be a nuclear engineer...

Good Lord. Imagine the deafening outcry from the Leftists, CNN, WaPo, NYT, NBC and all the Democrats of racism IF Trump said something like this. Or even close to it.

Joe Biden's Latest Gaffe: "Poor Kids Are Just As Bright & Talented As White Kids"



By the Left's own standards, Joe Biden is a hard core racist and segregationist.

I live in Georgia, a red state. I grew up around alot of Republicans. I went to college with alot of Republicans. I've had alot of interactions with Republicans. I live in a county that voted for Trump to the tune of 68%. I also see alot of Trump signs where I live. I've had plenty of interactions with Republicans.

I'm not "speaking for other Black people". I'm speaking on what I've seen and experienced in my life. I've lived in several states, and I've grown up in Georgia. I am speaking on what I see and hear where I live. I live in a predominantly White, Republican county. I have frequently worked in the city of Atlanta, where I can find alot of Black people that I've worked with. The university I went to was in the suburbs of the Atlanta metro area. I've met plenty of Republicans as well as Black people who went to that university. At least I have the experiences.

What experiences do you have?
