    you mean like the blacks that have been released due to prison reform.
    also the First Step Act.

    The First Step act was a small win towards the movement to end mass incarceration. Similar bills have long been blocked by Republicans, but finally one got through.

    But I think that's the absolute bare minimum. It's a modest bill with some successes and some failures, as the Brennan Center link you provided said. I'll take it, but let's not get carried away dude. Continuing to support the criminalization of weed and other drugs is heinous and cruel. Releasing 100 people is good, but it's not even close to being nearly enough to deserve a pat on the bat. Not when he still supports countless draconian laws and the prison industrial complex as a whole.

    His first attorney general was Jeff ****ing Sessions for Christ's sake

    Let's not pretend like Trump is some civil rights champion.

    One of yesterday's pardons was for a guy that donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Trump's campaign and the other was on Celebrity Apprentice. We know what's up.

    Am I supposed to give the guy who has been calling for the death penalty for drug dealers credit for going soft on crime now?
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    I never said he was, but lets not pretend that Trump is only looking out for white people/rich people, which is what you are implying. that is left wing brainwashing.

    Oh, I DEFINITELY think he mostly only cares about those people!

    I also said "white collar", not "white". For the record. Though.....whatever.

    Has he done a few things here or there that she he might care about others: yes. Is it often? Of course not. Come on. His priorities are himself first and other rich crooks secondly. Inarguable. He doesn't give a single **** about you or I or anyone else that's making a modest life for themselves presumably working hard.

    you would have credibility if you posted on topic, but more often you're antagonizing other posters. don't like this then stop posting nonsense and have a conversation about something related here.

    Katrina Pierson said black, I pluralized the same word.

    "the" isn't used as a description. this would be comparable to saying the people, like "you mean the people" but I used the same word that she did except I made it plural.

    Democrat James Clyburn Attacks Trump: Black Unemployment Better When We Were Slaves
    Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) refused to give President Donald Trump any credit during an interview on Wednesday for delivering record low unemployment rates for the black community, and instead argued that blacks had more jobs when they were slaves.

    Clyburn made the remarks during an interview with Fox News when host Neil Cavuto brought up racially insensitive remarks made by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

    “If he were the nominee, would you back him?” Cavuto asked Clyburn.

    “Oh, I’m going to back whoever our nominee is, absolutely,” Clyburn responded.

    “Even with the things he has said about African Americans? Or does that bother you?” Cavuto asked.

    “Well, not as much as what Trump has said about African Americans,” Clyburn continued. “Anytime that I go to the polls, I’m considering positives and negatives on all candidates, and I try to go with the one whose positives outweigh the negatives.”

    “Well let’s leave the words aside, alright congressman? Let’s leave the words aside. Whether you like his style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African Americans, has he not?” Cavuto asked. “With record low unemployment levels, one group after another, mostly with African Americans. You don’t think that’s something that’s constructive?”

    “No, no, because it’s not true,” Clyburn falsely claimed.

    “What do you mean it’s not true?” Cavuto pressed.

    “I’m saying African American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been, unless you count slavery,” Clyburn responded. “We were fully unemployed during slavery, so it all depends about how you measure this up.”

    what is one supposed to think when a Democrat says something like this, that unemployment was better when there was slavery. I guarantee that if someone white said there would be outrage.

    What is one to think when you have to ask a black congressman leave aside all of the presidents history to ask him a question?

    The acting Director of National Intelligence, Joseph Maguire, briefed the House Intelligence Committee that Russia was attempting to influence the 2020 election in favor of Trump and Trump got angry and now Mr. Maguire is being replaced. The White House called the timing a "coincidence".


    The one thing you cannot do is tell a truth that angers Trump.
