A few weeks ago Donald Trump appealed to black voters by asking them “what the hell do you have to lose?”. Many in the community including me found his approach insulting. He was not presenting a positive message. It was a message seemingly tailored to one segment of the black community, but Saturday night President Obama seemingly took a strange turn. The first part of his speech worked but the “insult to my legacy” was downright myopic. So I should vote for Clinton to preserve his legacy? I get the underlying point a Trump presidency would undo gains made but voters vote for candidates that will work hard to make life better for others not to preserve a legacy. It is also interesting that throughout his presidency and his run for the office President Obama has tended to lecture the black community rather than appeal to our better angels. Please tell me who else he has used this approach on? Share your thoughts.
What Do you Have to Lose and Vote for Hillary Clinton or you insult my legacy…which one of these is insulting?
