MAJ J, I gotta ask you do do some professional analysis.
WHY would otherwise INTELLEGENT black men think that trump would do SH!T for HBCU's after running a RACIST campaign and anointing the Keebler elf KLANSMAN Attorney General?
I mean... people KEEP crowing about this SO-CALLED initiative to "help" HBCU's while COMPLETELY ignoring all the other racist bullschit this motherflucker is slinging.
PLEASE explain the psychology behind the reasoning black folk with conservative tendencies use to inform their thought process.... I REALLY want to understand.
I'm still trying to process.
Ok, this is how I would play it if I was Trump and the Republicans, and this has nothing to do with love but political strategy. Knowing the Dems are in a weakened state, and knowing the bond between African Americans and Dems is almost unbreakable, a shrewd person would smell blood in the water and try to exploit it. This is the perfect opportunity to possibly erode some of the Dem's, African American support.
Polls show black folk feel neglected by democrats. Many black folk also felt Obama did little to help black people and also implemented policies that actually hurt HBCUs.
Have you noticed that since being elected, Trump has signed EOs that attacked, Muslims, Mexicans, and a pleather of foreign entities? Strangely, he has not targeted African Americans, yet. Perhaps this is political strategy. He needs to peel off a small part of the support for Clinton. He's not going to get Hispanic and Muslims because of the policies that are important to the Trump conservative base, namely border security and immigration. He's likely not going to make inroads with the extreme left. That leaves African Americans as sitting ducks, ripe for the taking. Basically if you give many of us something, we're sold, -hook, line and sinker.
What better way to start the process than to call in HBCU presidents and throw them a bone? If smart Republicans minds in congress know the plan, they will provide funding. The conservative base will not reject this special funding because they don't think they are racist, and don't like being labeled as such.
Now here is the problem for democrats. Knowing this is an attempt to win African American votes, some may be inclined to reject the funding. But will they? Absolutely not. Doing so would alienate African Americans and increase their support for the
I honestly hope this is the plan. It would be a win win situation. HBCUs would get some needed funding and the Dem's monopoly with African American will finally be broken. Both parties need to work for out vote, and they can start by funned all the thing that are important to us.
Now let me put on my radiation suit and sit back and wait for the Cholly atomic bomb to drop.
I actually think this is exactly their plan....I read a gop study once that bascially said that if the GOP could get just 10% of aftican americans to consistently vote GOP both nationall and locally, it would swing so many close races that it was worth almost any amount of money spent to attain it. I think at the time I read that (during W Bush years) they were getting like 5% consistently...they mess around and get in good with HBCUs, who know what could happen.....
I dont care eithe way....whther he likes HBCus or its political, if HBCUs benefit then thats the win....just be careful of hidden strings....
