    I donít know why it is surprising that some black people support Trump.

    Youíd have to have waded neck deep through CEC-generated, racially coded nonsense for decades in order to be surprised that some black people support Trump.

    Do you know if that first woman depicted in the video is Candace Owens?

    And yet people do. Not her on DP necessarily, but I've seen anti-Trumpers insist that #walkaway black people are Russian bots. All of them. Even the YouTube videos, of which there are many.

    That's the thing, I don't think the GOP actually needs to change all that much. While yes, it has its problems, it's not near as big as those on the opposite side like to portray it as. As pointed out in the video by some, the DNC likes to portray Republicans as racist as a fear tactic. Note, I'm not saying that there are not racist Republicans, that would be stupid. But I also do not think its near as bad as the DNC likes to make it out to be.

    People like to point out that there aren't that many black people voted into office on the Republican side but I find such statements to be dishonest in that they're not looking at obvious things. Like the fact that 90%+ of blacks always vote Democrat. That doesn't leave a lot of black people on the Republican side, much less qualified enough to hold office. Though I am seeing some political conservative black activists that, if they put their energy into it the right way, would get voted in.

    Yes, Candace Owens was in the video. She was a small part of the video though.

    Here's the thing in my opinion. The blacks that leave mostly leave because they feel the party has left them not because the GOP is offering them more hope which is why most folks of color still vote democratic. It is also why I would love the GOP to change enough to attract more of a diversity of voters. I just don't see the GOP changing enough for that to ever happen.

    I think what is surprising to a lot of people, blacks, Dems and Trump haters, is that Trump had more support from blacks than, say, Romney in the 2016 election and that he has ANY support from blacks at all right now.

    Me? I don't find it surprising. I find it heartening that there are people who won't be swayed by the media's onslaught against Trump...whether they are black, white or other.

    You have experienced exactly none of that.

    And yet she represents a huge part of the crazy that keeps tripe like this from ever being taken seriously.

    Candace "I don't care one bit about the government/sell out shill to the fracking industry" Owens?

    She's a vacuous, inane, disgusting little demagogue.
