Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 22, 2020

Radio personality Charlamagne Tha God has credited President Donald Trump with attempting to reach young black male voters, a group he said 'never gets courted' during election campaigns. The influential 42-year-old radio host said Democratic Party marketing tended to speak to the interests of older black men, assuming that all other black people will share their concerns. 'When it comes to those black people you see who maybe [are] showing support for Trump, I just think because Trump is actually talking to young Black male voters,' he said.

Charlamagne tha God: I understand why black voters are drawn to Trump

...The polling site FiveThirtyEight found that young black voters look at Trump differently than the older population of African Americans.

It said that while 35 percent of 18- to 29-year-old black men don't agree with his policies, they like his strong manner and defiance of the political establishment....

What defiance? Trump has taken over the Republican party and the Republicans have turned Trumpism into a disgruntled form of Republicanism. They are playing off of each others' character flaws, leading our country into the fnkcing abyss!

The only benefit I've recognized witnessing this playout is the blatant bigotry that has been outed. They have been so giddy in the thought that the country has shifted to their side of the ideological spectrum that they feel compelled to truly test how far we'll be pushed. If it wasn't for the virus, Republicans would be eyeing a full decade of unquestioned power, with all the intent of putting down minority voters.

What young, black men think they are witnessing is not actually taking place. Trump is pro-systemic racism. That in and of itself should speak to these young, black men. When it doesn't, it makes me wonder what it actually is that attracts them to such authoritarianism.

You might not like it Rsty,

But Trump was hired to come into Washington and turn over tables and be the bull in the China shop..

He has done that. And done a good job....

There is a segment of the black population that can see what Trump has really done for the community. And they are quietly....

Voting.

What has Trump done for the black community?

Follow-up question: What has Trump done for the black community that Kanye couldn't do better?

So you voted for him hoping he would destroy this country.

Kudos for admitting it. I always figured you righties we're projecting when you said Democrats want to destroy the US.

Nothing in the article mentions what Trump is talking to young black men about. Charlamagne Tha God only says that "he's directing ads towards them", but I certainly haven't seen any such ads.

At the end of the article he says "I'm just so tired of old white male leadership in politics."

Ummm...

Cherry of the article.

Charlamange says he's voting for Biden.

During the interview, he told anchor Don Lemon that he himself wasn't 'necessarily voting for Joe Biden' but was interested in voting for Kamala Harris.

'I believe she's a political change agent, exactly the leader this country needs to lead us in the future. If she's not, I'll just be wrong,' he said.

Correct.

That's why I went looking around and found the reference to some 5-3-8 polling analysis that gave a possible reason (my comment #1).

Days, for daaaaays I will be waiting.

"I gave [Black Americans] criminal justice reform! Best President to the Black community since Abraham Lincoln!!" -- Drumpf

No you didn't, you gave them token recognition that criminal justice reform is necessary BECAUSE systemic racism exists. The "First Step Act," was just that...a fnkcing step. Couldn't even bring yourselves to address the CURRENT crack/cocaine sentencing disparity (all they did was acknowledge the depravity of the 100:1 disparity, giving leniency to those sentenced under it all the while the disparity still exists 18:1), probably the lowest hanging fruit next to rescheduling marijuana to a Schedule II. And from the sounds of it, Trump actually denigrated Ivanka and Jared for suggesting he sign the act. He signed it for votes, not because it was the right thing to do and now he regrets it while touting it.

Scum.

I missed out on the big ban that happened end of April when Jeff, Mustang, LftHndThreads, and a few others were banned/demanded to be banned in solidarity.

You know they're still lurking. Where do you think they get their material for their discord server?

Undoubtedly.

We've had several new SockPuppets come and go since the big ban.

As a DR addict, myself. I'd be lurking too if I was banned.

No such luck.

All the recent protesting and riots the last few months in response to police killings shows me who exactly blacks have the most anger against.

From what I've seen it was mostly about poor treatment by law enforcement. There was other things brought into it but for the most part the overwhelming emphasis by the black community was towards law enforcement....not Trump.

Yea...I'm sure someone can find people who did bring out Trump effigies, but that's not really what most of the anger was about.

That wasn't the focus.

Attempting to paint the black community as being anti-Trump as liberals are isn't consistent with what I've mostly seen in the news.

Perhaps younger black people don't necessarily see Trump as the enemy like liberals.

This idea that all blacks are in political lockstep is just more racial profiling by the left.

Angry,

When whites began appropriately the black protests, things went in a different direction.

But...I'm talking about what blacks were protesting.

Years of police profiling which I will agree in SOME areas that is a problem.

Whether Trump wins or loses, after the election I suspect this site will become a madhouse of untenable opinions worse than it already is.

Like gays deserve equal rights. Untenable!

Do you realize: if Republicans had unfettered power, they'd force people like you into re-education camps?
