Yeah, that's pretty solid logic.

Trump talks more shit on camera and at his rallies than he does on Twitter lol. Take another L.

Also Obama was caught off guard calling Kanye a jack ass. Trump uses Twitter to address the nation. It is absolutely different.





"Hey everyone look over there!...Obama!"




The funny thing is 1) Kanye is a jackass so he was speaking the truth..and 2) if Obama was as partisan cutout as trump is he wouldn't be dissing somebody on his side of a social issue...ever.

The problem with black culture right now is this entitlement victim syndrome.


You want to live in true opression? Go live in parts of the middle east. You have every opportunity in America.


So basically you can't stand up for improvement so long as there's a shithole somewhere else? Nice point jackass.

That isn't the way to do it and you know it.


This only creates more divide. You can do it in other ways that don't project straight onto a media platform.

Do community work, feed the homeless, employ black people in less fortunate areas, empower black people to find jobs instead of gangbanging.

Empower yourself to rise above the challenges. Mayweather got the right idea, use him as a mentor.

If the black community is struggling, ask yourself why? Is it because of Trump? Is it because of oppression?

Or is it bad habits, blacks not having fathers, blacks falling into easy traps of the gang life, blacks blaming these challenges for why they can't succeed?


Plenty of whites grow up in poor surroundings that make it. Do they blame that on being white?

The "but Obama " line of argument is dead. Let's move on from that. Trump has taken this to another level. Let's be real about that.
