Despite his latest victory in the South Carolina primary, presidential hopeful Donald Trump doesn’t have much to offer African-Americans and the storyline gets worse: White supremacist groups like the KKK are now reportedly recruiting members by invoking Trump’s name.

Trump, the Republican frontrunner, is attracting more white supremacists to his racially incendiary campaign. Here’s how it reportedly plays out: White nationalists groups will take a newspaper with a Donald Trump story and show it to white patrons at bus stops, coffee shops, on trains, and pitch their white-only organizations.

And by some accounts it’s effective. Trump’s anti-politically correct campaign resonates with many white supremacists even though Trump maintains that he hasn’t endorsed any hate groups.

Like many of the other GOP candidates, Trump has not offered a detailed plan that would uplift African-Americans and people of color.

Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX); Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL); the main contenders left standing for the Republican nomination,  don’t talk much about poverty, racism, criminal justice reform, voting rights, or affirmative action — all issues of concern to many Black Americans.

But recently, Trump’s racial views have been questioned: He has called Mexicans “rapists,” a Black man was kicked, punched and called the N-word by whites at a Trump rally last year, and Trump proudly boasts that he can do more for African-Americans than President Barack Obama, the nation’s first Black president.

Still, U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., insists that Trump will garner a good portion of the Black vote if he becomes the Republican nominee.

“I think he’s going to be talking about issues that could appeal to African-Americans — like trade,” Sessions told reporters. “So I think there could be support for him there.”

Trump agreed with Sessions and said he is unlike most Republicans.

“Generally, Republicans do not do well with African-Americans,” Trump said last year during a speech to the Greater Charleston Business Alliance, which is affiliated with the South Carolina African-American Chamber of Commerce. “I have a lot of friends, African-Americans in New York, they say, ‘You’re going to get most of the vote.’ ”

Trump is trying to defy the odds: George W. Bush won 11 percent of black voters in 2004 and Mitt Romney received only about 6 percent in 2012 against President Barack Obama.

But let’s review Trump’s past.

Trump was accused of making racial slurs against Black people in book written in 1991 by John R. O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, called Trumped!

In the book, O’Donnell wrote that Trump once said, in reference to a Black accountant at Trump Plaza, “Laziness is a trait in Blacks.” He also said: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

And in 1989, after the rape of a white female jogger in Central Park, Trump took out full-page newspaper ads calling for the return of the death penalty after five African-American teenagers were arrested for the assault. All five teenagers were eventually exonerated and Trump’s actions infuriated New York’s black community.

Today, Trump’s racial rhetoric continues to attract white supremacists who hate African-Americans and other people of color.

Obama said with conviction that Trump will never make it to the White House because voters will not rally around a former reality television star.

He may be right – but he could be wrong.

  1. The dem and reps has been fleecing America for decades, both houses has a pact to maintain their power and greed over America, they work in opposition to each other but at the end of the day they are bosom buddies, Hillary will maintain that pact the dem and reps have over America for decades, Trumps is cleaning house they are using every tactic they can to get rid of Trump, get behind Trump and get rid Washington’s greed and corruption, vote Trump and help clean house.

  2. Really hilarious to read black people going on and on about racist/bigot people on a website designed specifically for black people. To get angry about an all white Oscars when they have more egocentric racially driven awards shows than any other race in the world combined. Funny to watch everyone get so mad about blacks getting killed by cops when more blacks kill other blacks than all other crime in the US put together 10x over. You deserve this. All of it. You had a chance to come out from the BS history you endured but nah, you’re too comfortable with blaming everyone else on the planet except yourselves for your current problems.

    For the topic at hand, I can tell you right now Donald Trump will be the next president and for your information, I cannot stand that POS. But guess what? Black people won’t get out and vote. Why? There is no black politician they want in office. 95% of black people voted for Obama for two terms. Was it a bigot thing to do? Probably. Statistics show you don’t show up to vote unless there is a black person running for office. Hard facts you can’t refute.

    None of what I said matters. You chose this. All of it. You’ll hide under the blanket and point fingers forever. What angers me. What makes me mad is you are going to let a POS disgusting human like Donald Trump become president. YOU are letting it happen. We need your votes. But, I have zero faith you will show up. None. History says you won’t show, and I for one am inclined to believe it.

    • Jerry, he said Ebola was under control when the CDC said the opposite and you have no idea about the context when he said the cops “actED” stupidly. Nice try.
      Pick two others.

    • Joy apparently you have not been paying attention to the candidate you WILL be instructed to vote for That’s all Hilary has been promising that your children will no longer be arrested or shot by police no matter what the circumstance, and if the government can’t give you a job it will at least give you a check

  3. We need to remind people to VOTE IN THEIR STATES’ PRIMARIES. We also need to encourage those that aren’t registered to vote TO REGISTER. Word is there are several million Black & Latino people who aren’t registered

    • Yes and the DNC is working diligently to get all those undocumented aliens voter registration cards it’s also predicted that a record number of dead people will be turning out to vote as well

  4. Alberta on said:

    If anyone feels confused or dismayed about which candidate to vote for, those feelings aren’t in vain. That’s because Obama WILL be the 45th president of these United States how, why when? Somehow, because somebody will make it happen this November 2016. Really I’m serious, Go ahead vote in the primary elections it won’t matter by Nov.2016

  5. See it’s people like Peter Johnson that make my head spin on why so many black folk want to be with whites soooooooo bad! And all the prayer and praying will NOT change their overall hate and envy of us. This so-called UNITED states was founded by fighting and fighting is the ONLY thing whites understand and respect. All that turn the other cheek and prayer is out the window. We should be fuckin tired of being fuckin doormats to these ass holes that obviously hate the very ground we walk on. Black women chasing these punk ass white men and Black men chasing these weak ass white women need to turn toward their own like THEY do build up their own community like Asian America does. I never hear Asian America squabbling with each over being with whites. As for Chris and Obama doing nothing for Black America, I believe he has and if he hasn’t, WHO HAS?

    • Cassanova, please give us three examples of Obama helping black folk. Unemployment for blacks is twice that of whites and Hispanics.
      Also, please refute three lines from the list in my original post.

      • Chris please give us three (3) EXAMPLES OF HOW YOU THINK PRESIDENT OBAMA CAN GUARANTEE EVERY BLACK PERSON A JOB.

      • Better still…..why don’t you look to your LOCAL POLITICIANS, i.e., mayors, governors, city councilman, etc. to bring jobs to your area??!! It’s more realistic for them to do so than a President. SMDH!!

      • Chris: EXACTLY SPECIFICALLY what do you want President Obama to do for Black people?! DETAILS please! Guarantee jobs? Not going to happen (NO President CAN GUARANTEE JOBS…..no matter what they say….including candidates). What….40 Acres & a Mule?! Again….DETAILS on what you think should be provided

      • Joy,
        do you mean 50 years of democrats who controlled Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, Camden, St. Louis?Those local politicians?

      • Joy,
        Baltimore hit a grim record in 2015-the city recorded its highest rate per capita in history. The 344 Homicides were nine fewer than the 353 recorded in 1993, but the city also has about 100,000 fewer residents than it did in the 909’s. And even though Maryland passed a sweeping round of anti-gun laws in 2013 that have do-nothing to stem the tide of violence, the Baltimore Sun reports that some in the city have renewed their call for even more anti-gun legislation.
        The street thugs and career criminals who inflict such damage on their own neighborhoods have no qualms about breaking the state’s gun laws (not to mention the laws against aggravated assault, carjacking, home invasion and murder).

        I left out the great city of Chicago, home of your false idol, YTD shootings 444.

  6. Michelle on said:

    Not sure why there is so much attention being brought to this person. They are clearly making a mockery of him and he is too dumb to realize it. He will never be President. Certainly not getting my vote no matter how much money he has.

  7. peter Johnson*—What do you want Black folks to do for Whites? What I want from you people is my 40 acres minus the mule!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The last time I heard-Black folks owe NOTHING to Whites!!!!!!!
    You need to Get Over Yourselves!!!!!!

    If this makes me a racist (because I care NOTHING about your White Ass) then SO BE IT!!!!!!!!!

    • FU Linda you stupid Ni##er. We owe you nothing. You should be on your knees thanking masta whitey for taking your out of africa where you would be starving to death and dying of AIDS. You ungrateful subhuman apes contribute nothing and destroy everything. I would ship you apes back to africa!

      • Peter, please tell me if ignorance really is bliss? I don’t know if you are just that ignorant or just trying to incite anger. Either way, it’s sad.

  8. Nancy Cruz on said:

    Can Minorities do any worse?
    Over the past 8 years in EVERY measurable economic category minority income, home ownership, labor participation rate, and wealth has dropped…. EVERY category.
    ++ Does Cottman have the testicals to do some real reporting? I doubt it

  9. OBAMA CARE NEEDS TO BE REPEALED; I’m a Black Man, make approx $32K a yr. and can’t afford Obama Care with the subsidy–it would be less for me to pay the penalty. I voted for the Brother, but this Affordable Care Act has turned out to be Un-Affordable for me & millions of other working class Black People.

  10. I have, and continue to pray to God to not let Donald Trump be President of the United States! God does not promote Evil! When you go up against the Pope in reference to Christianity (the Mexican wall?…), Trump has proven that his heart and mind is full of evil and insensivity.

    “No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper” Donald Trump and your racist followers.

  11. And if he doesn’t care about blacks so what. What black person gives a damn about whites. We already have witnesses how much the racist Obama hates whites through his actions and words. Who sends money to africa to help those starving apes? White people! What have blacks done for whites other than take trillions in handouts, destroy once prospering cities like Detroit into the ground, and commit millions of crimes against whites. 90 percent of interracial crime in this country is black on white straight from the FBI statistics. The worst racists on the planet blacks!!!!!

    • Well idiot, we still have a long ways to go to repay you cave dwellers for you kindness in instituting rape, murder, hangings, tar & featherings etc., etc. Also, trillions of dollars, get a dang grip, the majority of welfare recepients in this country are whites fool. That’s a higher percentage of a 5 times larger population, idiot. No one absolutely no one is more criminal than whites, just ask the Indians, Middle Easterners and others. You’ve taken from everyone and will get what you deserve soon enough. One final point, whitey, Blacks simply cannot be racist, no when you been the victim of racism for eons, you’re only responding to racism, you are not a racist. No, that distinction is reserved for those that are the very best at it, white folks.

      • Duke, white people have lost the County to Hispanics & Arabs, not Black People. Illegal Immigrants receive $200 Billion Yearly, yet your Political Reps tell you there will be no Soc.Sec. for you when you reach 65. Your Political Leaders admit they are taking from Soc.Sec. to fund Illegal Immigration. You will have to be Bi-lingual to get a job is not the fault of Black People. Most of the corner stores are owned & operated by Hispanics or Arabs…when you receive a government document, have you noticed that it is also printed in Hispanic–this is a direct message to you that white people have lost the County to Hispanics, not to Black People.

      • Actually you pavement ape, it’s your monkeys who will be dominated again and again. You are a failed ape species and don’t think white people aren’t waking up and understanding yall are the worst racists on the planet. You subhuman porch monkey!@

      • If you knew your history blackboy instead of your continuous Ni##er lies and bullshit you would know that there are more slaves in AFRICA this VERY DAY than there ever where in the UNITED STATES! Look it up gorilla boy. Guess what the Arabs are using you Ni##ers as slaves this very day. Look it up. Less than 1 percent of whites owned slaves and they were sold to evil whitey by blacks themselves. Ohh, what a fool you look like now blackboy. Let’s not forget that there is not a single slave owner or slave alive today. So basically you want something for nothing, more handouts for the failed ape species which commits over 50 percent of violent crime while making up 12 percent of the population. 75 percent of the worlds aids carriers, 70 percent born out of wedlock. Shall I carry on blackboy? I have plenty more!

  12. So what else is new?

    The fact that dumb Trump is pandering to the White Supremacists and other white folks who are not happy with the direction this country is going in.

    Let Trump continue down this path and see how far he will get when Election day comes around.
    He cannot win the White House without a good percentage of the minority vote.

    Although, with the $$$$$ he has he can just buy his way to the White House!!!!!!!

    • Linda, black unemployment is double white and Hispanic unemployment. Obama and the democrat party have done nothing for the black community. Obama is more concerned about gay rights, protecting Muslims, illegal aliens, illegally giving taxpayer money to insurance companies to keep Obamacare afloat, he lied his way into the White House, continued lying for the last 7 1/2 years:

      no lobbyists in my administration.
      I’ll go through the budget line by line.

      • Chris it sounds as though you should be running for President since you have all the answers. I agree Obamacare is currently a debacle (I’m hoping it will work it’s way out of this. We shouldn’t forget that it took Medicare, and Medicaid years to iron out). As for jobs…..NO PRESIDENT CAN GUARANTEE EVERY ONE A JOB, and intelligent people know this. All the candidates say they will create jobs bc it’s a TALKING POINT. If it were that simple don’t you think President Obama would snap his finger, and create millions of jobs so he could look good!! I’m still an Obama fan bc I know the presidency isn’t easy (especially when you have an obstructive congress)

      • Joy, the PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY of the President is the Safety & Security of the People. As such, President Obama is SLEEPING-IT by NOT sending in the appropriate engineers & National Guard to RESOLVE the POISONOUS WATER in Flint MI. This is not a light-weight-subject; this is a LIFE & DEATH subject, which should cause the President to resolve yesterday. I voted for my brother Obama, however, he is remiss in his inherent responsibility to RESOLVE the Poisonous Water issue in Flint, MI.

    • Chris: And you did not give me one answer as to EXACTLY SPECIFICALLY what President Obama should do for Black people. What’s with your OVERWHELMING NEED to “Refute” President Obama??!! If you don’t like him so-beth. Who cares. Believe me there are numerous people that don’t like me, or you. That’s life. Sounds as though you have HUGE INSECURITY ISSUES. Bye Felicia! LOL
