“I have a great relationship with the blacks,” REALLY? So says Donald Trump in a recent radio interview. Of the potential candidates on the Republican side, Donald Trump was the one who could have taken votes away from Barack Obama in the 2012 election. Any political currency he had with the black community has been squandered on his lack of sensitivity.
The comment was no better than saying “those people.” It’s amazing to this writer how some politicians just don’t seem to get it. In a world where gaffes and blunders go viral in milliseconds thanks to the Internet, you would think one would be more careful.
