    It's all about Trump. Black people know neither one of them is going to do anything real for the community.

    Are we going to pretend it will be any different if Trump wins? This is what two horrific choices gets you.

    There are forums I don't care for, I don't rail for them to be closed. Try what I do, ignore that forum. Really simple solution.

    I'm waiting on @mountain ref's thread regarding how much of the American taxpayer money is being spent flying the Obama's around to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

    I'm somewhat kidding, but also thinking that number would be pretty high.

    True, the GOP's pandering game is far behind the Dem's pandering.

    Dems talk alot but have actually done little in the last 40 years, but they keep getting the vote...without having to really do anything to get it. GOP needs to address the needs of minorities directly, too often their message is for All Americans and minorities think that doesn't include them if they aren't specifically mentioned.

    Talk of bringing jobs to the country is for everyone, not just whites.
    Talk of better schools and accountability is for everyone, not just whites.
    Talk of crime reduction is for everyone, not just whites....but if a Republican says any of those things it's gets either ignored by minorities or spun as being bad for them.

    GOP needs better voices to directly talk to minority communities and needs to drop minor political differences with the Dems that continually are used to drive wedges.

    I have seen the number of $206,000 an hour just for the President to fly not including jet fuel and flight crew salaries.

    I saw that picture floating around on Facebook. Wasn't sure if it was true or not, but made me start thinking about it and then I was shocked that we didn't have a thread on it yet.

    Whats the use or sense of talking about it. No one cares and all the Liberals will cry out some pitiful excuse about how everyone else does it.

    Disagree in this election. Blacks know all about Hillary Clinton and many have done way more research than given credit for. Hillary panders but folks see right through it these days. At the end of the day republicans running for office do not care at all about the black vote and have given up trying to relate to blacks. If anything that sentiment is more out in the open than ever before.


    This is republicans:

    Ben Carson:

    How come nobody talks about the rappers who talk like Trump?

    Republicans:

    That's right!!!! See? There's a black guy who gets it.


    And no, I am not talking about anyone on BGP. I'm speaking on social media which is where this election fight is taking place. That is the tone of a lot of vocal republicans these days. I'll also add that a lot of blacks are very protective of Obama so anyone coming sideways at Obama will not gain a teammate.

    Republicans have elderly and young white women holding up signs that say Blacks for Trump at Trump rallies. So yeah, there's that too.

    The constant obsession from either side to overlook one candidate's wrong doings by magnifying the other is no different in my eyes than a child caught red handed pointing a finger at another child's bad behavior in an effort to take the heat off of him or her self. ...And I remind you that all of this behavior is coming from so called adults.

    What is so wonderful about either one of these candidates that would make any average citizen obsess day after day to champion one and tear down the other as if either of them are some beloved friend that they feel so compelled to defend, and at the same time what provokes within anyone to so adamantly hate the other?

    And while so many are stuck in this mindset, it spills out over to our reactions and feelings towards our friends and neighbors which has so unnecessarily a grave effect on our relationships with others.

    Are our lives so empty and lame that we must appoint other mere humans some sort of demigod status in order for us to worship, and at the same time are we so desperate to have someone to hate in order for us to constantly spew negativity?

    This competitive streak that so many have is often lost by stable mature humans after their last high school football game, and then they get on with their adult lives.

    If I were a child looking up to adults for guidance and observing how so many have behaved regarding this election I'd have to feel somehow at a loss and terribly unimpressed by humanity because there's been very few examples of people conducting themselves in a mature fashion.

    I don't know about anyone else but throughout my entire life there's rarely been much difference made in my personal life by who the president was. Sure an argument can be made of its importance, but right down to the core I'm going to carry on with my life just the same no matter who the hell the president is, and with that I can't seriously find one good reason for me to be so charged up about all of this as I'm seeing from many of my fellow humans. The more ate up people are regarding this the more to me they seem pathetically shallow no matter what party they are affiliated with. What the hell is wrong with everybody?
