So, the first presidential debate is behind us.

What did you think?

Who won?

Well, not so fast.

According to polls from conservative sites like Drudge and Breitbart Trump won.

According to neutral polls like a CNN/ORC poll Clinton won 62 to 27 percent.

And even some Fox News hosts are saying Hillary Clinton won the night and she controlled the ball.

The candidates covered a lot of ground last night from trade to terror.

But let’s discuss the moments that are of particular interest this audience of black folks who are listening this morning because after all Trump has spent a lot of time supposedly reaching out to people of color.

Let’s take a look at the birther issue first.

Lester Holt, the debate moderator, asked Trump why for years he continued to promote a false narrative that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States.

Trump pivoted to the same untrue talking point that Hillary Clinton started the birther movement, and then falsely stated that Clinton’s former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle admitted a few weeks ago on CNN.

Luckily CNN had Patti Solis Doyle on last night to explain.

“It is absured what Donald Trump just said… promoting it or perpetuating it.  That’s called shutting it down.”

When pressed several times by Holt during the debate Trump would not apologize nor explain his reason for finally admitting the President was born here.

He just doubled down saying he finished the issue by getting the President to do something Hillary Clinton couldn’t, produce his birth certificate.

Now let’s get to stop and frisk.

Trump stated again that the unconstitutional tactic was a crime killer instead of a form of racial profiling.

“Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York…..  no the argument is that we have to take the guns away from these people who are bad people and shouldn’t have them.”

Still, facts didn’t matter to Mr. Trump in that case either.

And when asked by Lester Holt what he would say to African Americans about racial healing, Trump defiantly said he would say nothing and congratulated himself again for getting President Obama to produce his birth certificate.

And with that do I really need to write or say another word?

    • Where do you get the idea that Black people are afraid of Trump? We’re not afraid of him. We just know a con man when we see one. We’ve mastered the art of spotting liars. We’ve been dealing with white people for centuries.

  1. Trump is a chump and anybody of color that vote for that fool is crazy and better wake up because that man is for no one of Color. And to laugh about people losing their home is so sad it is all about money for him and he want to keep getting rich and why have he not have to show his tax return you all made sure President Obama showed his Birth Certificate. Double standard so people let make sure we get out like we did for President Obama and vote vote vote.

  2. Hillary made Trump be Trump. He can run, but he couldn’t hide last night. He can’t help but be himself…a real idiot. There is no doubt that Hillary won the debate. She prepared he did not and it showed. However, going up against Trump, Hillary really did not have to prepare, but it shows the kind of person she is. She doesn’t assume anything!

  3. People say Hillary just come out for blacks vote and just like Trump that’s a lie. Trump even stated in the debate he has known us for a little while. Like blacks just came to earth. If you or anyone go to a job interview you would be prepared especially if it’s the highest job in the land. Again Trump thinks The American people are REAL IDIOTS our lives are Not a joke. The is NOT REALITY T.V. where you B.S. yourself thru scenes. I would never be so desperate for change until I do something so INSANE to jeopardize my life or my grandchildren life…This is what we are facing. He was rude disrespectful even to the moderator. America stop being BLIND and ask yourself if you were The President of a country that hated us and you heard Trump comments…I don’t Truly Believe that President would be laughing and can’t wait for election day for us to do something SO INSANE. HOW WILL YOU EXPLAIN TO YOUR GRANDCHILDRENS HOW DID YALL LET THIS HAPPENED? WHY DIDN’T YOU PROTECT US!!! HE EVEN BRAG ABOIT ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR HOMES SAYING IT WAS BUSINESS…WOW!Wow!Wow!

  4. Chump has no clue regarding the African American experience/existence in this country-therefore, he simply needs to STFU!!!!!!!

    If you have no rapport or clue of an ethnic group-how can you speak about them. In addition, Chump does not speak to us-he speaks AT US. Not the same thing.

    CHUMP and HILL both need to visit the “hoods” in Amerykah before either of them can expect a modicum of the minority vote.

    Visit our churches and worship with us on Sunday, break bread at a soul food restaurant with us, shake our hands/ kiss some babies. Knock on our doors and have a word or two with us.

    Only then can they say they know how the other halves live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
