Young Blacks Voice Skepticism on Hillary Clinton, Worrying Democrats

WASHINGTON — When a handful of liberal advocacy organizations convened a series of focus groups with young black voters last month, the assessments of Donald J. Trump were predictably unsparing.

But when the participants were asked about Hillary Clinton, their appraisals were just as blunt and nearly as biting.

“What am I supposed to do if I don’t like him and I don’t trust her?” a millennial black woman in Ohio asked. “Choose between being stabbed and being shot? No way!”

“She was part of the whole problem that started sending blacks to jail,” a young black man, also from Ohio, observed about Mrs. Clinton.

Who could forget… The “Klanbake” 1924 Democratic Party National Convention


  • Maybe it really IS true that you can’t fool all the people ALL the time.

    Loyalty is normally a fine human quality. However, when overdone in the political realm, it can be very harmful.

    Obama has done zip for black Americans, while bending over backwards to service illegal alien hispanics, in particular issuing work permits for DACA types who compete for jobs.

    • It is insane, but people do vote because of cultural history.

      • Dana Garcia

        If Hitlery wins, they will be more transference of anger and expectation to her.

        But I’m curious whether once Obama is out of office, there will be more critical voices among blacks as the damage is assessed.

    You silly people. 109% of all ‘votes’ from black people have already but put in the Hillary column. In fact, save yourselves the stress and don’t vote. We got this.

    I’d prefer Klans Casino to a Klanbake. (Kasino???)

    Nice wardrobe they had back then. Did it come in a “burqini” model for swimming ?
