    they don't have to be an actual organization to be organized, and they are.

    2017..
    https://www.politico.com/story/2017/...nce-fbi-242235
    Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.
    as for pre election gimmick, same thing could be said for Joe Biden picking a black running mate, which itself doesn't really do anything specific for black people in America.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I know it’s being presented as a way to improve education but sounds like something that could go the other way and make things worse.

    The kkk and Antifa thing seems almost like a throw in as a way to target antifa. The kkk has been fading into oblivion for decades and has been replaced by other groups that are rising in popularity. Are they included too?

    For those that have been saying for years that the BLM protests do more harm than good can you honestly say Trump does this without the last however many months of protests taking place?

    Ps - Did anyone else read any of the stream of straight up racist comments at the bottom of the linked article?

    what other groups are there? I'm sure some have been mentioned here before, only one that comes to mind right now is Proud Boys.

    cherry picking one thing in Antifa with everything else this does for black America, is demonstrably false. this would counter any racist ******** narrative the other side wants to come up with.

    if this is Trump playing to a racist base, then he is doing it wrong.

    Not sure it will win much for him for Election Day. He should have announced this a few days after the Floyd killing for real impact. At this point it just seems desperate.

    But funding for black businesses is great and overdue. They face far more struggles than most especially considering most of them are in poorer neighborhoods.

    Antifa is such a nonissue but it’ll make his base feel good. It may as well include a ban on wild Tiger attacks in Alaska. Like “yeah great....I guess?”


    I know most of my liberal or democrat friends will automatically hate it, because it’s Trump and I’m sure there’s lots of BS attached to it like every other DC initiative, but some of these plans are great and sorely needed.

    And If you’re going to bash him for doing nothing and then again when he does something, you sound as bad as the other side.

    Making Juneteenth a holiday, diversity training for law enforcement (even though he’s blocking it elsehwere)....these are good things. Gimmick or not.

    the impact this will have could depend on what attention it gets. will the media more on the left give this the attention it deserves for what it could do, or will they only mention if briefly. hard to have an impact on the left if they're not aware of it or what it could do.

    Again, what does Antifa have to do with race?

    The Base and Patriot Front are couple of the 199 active white supremacy groups in the US. Shouldn’t each and every one of them get equal coverage to what Antifa gets?

    Going to repeat this question Special since you ignored it. Do you think Trump comes up with this plan and presents it without the BLM protests?

    If had done anything like this a while back I would have applauded him, bow is just about let me get some votes from black peoples.
    Most politicians on both sides don’t give a **** about any of these issues. Do you really think Mitch even cares about abortion?

    They all do things for shady motives. So I’ll take positive change however it comes.

    I’m more interested in watching the media on the right do an aboutface on all these things blacks and liberals have been asking for.

    Actually your cluelessness toward this topic proves that he is doing it right.

    And your first sentence pretty much explains the issue, why did some left field antifa bs get lumped in with his black America plan? As mentioned, to cater to the racists as he tries to simultaneously cater to black America.

    lol, fnk, do you really not see it?!? lol!

    If you want to make the argument that the media should equally report all extremist activity then I agree. Unfortunately that doesn't do much for marketing or viewership.

    Antifa has nothing to do with race and your answer is "exactly" and then double down on it being a race issue?

    Yes. Congress has realized that they can put the blame for things on the court who are not elected while claiming they can't do anything about them.

    It's their job to make laws to change things for the better but they know in some cases their money doesn't want the same changes the public wants so they push them off, and in other cases using the issues to stir up the voters is worth far more than fixing them directly.

    I asked several people over the last few days and most of them don't actually realize the court can't just up and change the law on their own. The media and politicians have been telling them to be afraid of the court doing just that knowing they can take advantage of people's ignorance.
