Trump insults African-Americans as he tries to prove that he is not racist.
“What do you have to lose?You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. Fifty eight percent of your youth are living in poverty. What the hell do you have to lose?”
Holy shit! That is going to win him more votes.
But as Josh Marshall explains…
There’s a long history of Republican candidates making nominal ‘outreach’ to African-American voters not for the purpose of attracting African-American voters but to signal to moderate and/or educated white voters that they’re not racist…
…they’re so wrapped up in racial antagonism that they can’t keep track of whether they’re trying to execute the standard faux outreach act or just angry trolling. It’s all so close to the surface they can’t help blurting out lines that sound more like something you might say shooting the shit with David Duke. Trump’s ‘appeal’ amounts to a diatribe against African-American life which bristles with contempt. Kingston is the same, just in a different form. In the following interview, when Keilar presses Kingston on why Trump is doing ‘outreach’ from all white suburbs, he tries to parry her question but then he blurts out: “Maybe it would have been nicer if he had a backdrop with a burning car!”

Even when they are trying, the fools can’t hide their racism.
