Donald Trump is constantly saying Hillary Clinton does not have the “stamina” to be president. Another thing he loves to say is “she doesn’t look presidential”. What do you think he means by this? Is it because she is a woman? Share your thoughts.
Words to remember in the voting booth.
So Donald Trump is in a black church this morning. He is talking love and harmony among the races. He is soft spoken and polite. He is bordering on being likeable, he has reminded the crowd that the Republican party is the party of Abraham Lincoln, but would Lincoln recognize the party or the candidate. I think not. Let us not get caught up in the soft talk of this Saturday and forget the words said by this candidate over the past year and half.
Over the years we have watched as young people have been shot to death by members of their own community. Some have been the victims of wrong place wrong time, and stray bullets have snatched their lives. some have been the casualties of senseless gang wars. Fighting over territory and turf that does not belong to either group. Too often babies and young children are orphaned by the brutality of street justice. Somebody has to step up an parent these children, and the grandmothers are stepping into these parental shoes, but in some cases we are left to ask where are the fathers? Why aren’t we seeing fathers stepping up. Is it because so many of them are also victims of the streets? Or are they avoiding responsibility because the women they impregnated never asked them to be a part of the family? So many questions and so few answers but grandmothers are dying and some are still getting their groove on and there may come a time where there is no one to step up and then the state takes over and that would be the biggest tragedy.
Joe Scarborough pens Amnesty Don. Finally a nickname that will stick.
Millionaire quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he will not stand up for the National Anthem until black people are no longer oppressed. One might say he is exercising his rights but do his rights supercede the rights of his employer? The football field is his workplace and the employer controls the space. Kaepernick has a right to his opinion but not on the football field. NBC commentator Rodney Harrison went as far as to question Kaepernick’s blackness. Harrison has since apologized. Donald Trump has said Kaepernick should go to a country that aligns with his viewpoint. The quarterback need not leave the country but he should take his protest off the football field.

Donald Trump’s tweet-“Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”
As Nykea Aldridge laid in the morgue Donald Trump tweeted about her death. He saw it as an opportunity to say to the world that he was right about black neighborhoods, but it was seen for what it was. An attempt to capitalize on a death for political reasons. He was immediately called on the tweet by the Twitter world, but what does this say about Trump? Share your thoughts.
