The blacks have voted for Democrats for the past 50 to 60 or more years. Shouldn’t they be asking their representatives why they’re still in the position they’re in. The Democrats only use the blacks for votes by promising them more free stuff. After the election they could care less about how the blacks live. Like Donald Trump said vote for a Republican what more do you have to lose. I just don’t understand why they keep voting Democrats who wanted to keep slavery which is still how the Democrats treat them

Keep voting for democrats, wake up already, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY? Dems say they will help the black population out but only when it’s time to vote, they get your vote and laugh at you, than they forget about you. Trump had the lowest black unemployment in this countries history.
