Black Conservatives Debate Black Liberals On Trump, Obama, And American Politics

i grew up poor in black in akron ohio i went to one of the worst schools in akron ohio i went to the military risked my life multiple times there is no reason that every single black kid on the block can do that same thing [Applause] [Music] by show fans who here voted for donald trump all day believing in trump’s rhetoric just morally i don’t understand especially a black person uh three words or less what is your reaction when you see a black person wearing a maga hat well there’s a story independent-minded brother bold confused cringe uh you do you looks good on you can’t fit on my head i saw true hate coming from the left and it was white people calling me uncle tom pretty much white blue time i’m not black enough aunts won’t speak to me even now i got onset don’t talk to me because i’m um i wanna be white the people that call me vanessa is all kinds of like oh house uncle tom like all this stuff i’ve been called the bed winch that’s how racist the left still is for the black conservatives how do you align with white conservatives when they speak mal of black people you call it you call them out my whole thing that’s like for me calling them out but just how do you stand with them when they are speaking validation with hillary clinton when she calls um you know kids super predators yeah they’re gonna be racist there are gonna be some racists all over the place so now it’s like okay yo watch him out believing in trump’s rhetoric just morally i don’t understand especially a black person because just him as a person as an entity just seen is just super corrupt who here voted for barack obama damn near everybody twice campaign campaign for him in a way a semi-personal question did anyone vote for him just because he was black not just but that was a big reason that voted see i’ll admit it’s really funny because i’m a conservative and i was so available to be used by all of the systems that made that person president this person was born and raised in wealth and privilege his entire life and the idea that this person was somehow more connected to me because we share the same skin color is crazy yeah but i bought it that’s the one reason why i’m conservative now because i was willing to vote for somebody because of the way they look and look what they did for me absolutely nothing who is disappointed with the barack obama presidency i’m disappointed with president i mean i’m disappointed with all of it like we’re never going to be led to liberation in a binary system a binary system for black people is literally always going to be us choosing a lesser or two evils i’m always choosing my death either as a blunt force blow or death by a thousand paper cuts i feel like uh the candidates who keep being put up year after year after year keep hard lighting us we’re saying we’re choosing the lesser of two evils right where i think that it’s really important that we see candidates that come from our communities who also recognize the historical debt that this country has to black people and to people of color so that we can move forward so we know that none of us are free unless all of us are free thank you so much so you voted for donald trump yeah would you mind telling us why he won your vote in 2016. well first and foremost donald trump won my vote because i was not voting for hillary clinton at first i really didn’t know much about what trump was doing i’m looking at my christian values and i’m realizing this man is really aligning himself with what we truly believe in you know this is a chick who got a felony who had five years probation and so what i did was i made a choice to surrender my life to jesus and live righteously i’m a businesswoman i have my own financial consulting company and the fact that he was trying to cut funding and he is cutting funding to welfare that is a very big thing people don’t realize the more money that’s spent on welfare is coming out of our taxes the more you’re allowing them to extend their their lifestyle in the projects the more money is coming out of my pocket that’s part of my problem with donald trump is he’s literally making the rich richer and what’s it what happens with that the poor have to get more when we talk about black people and the one percenters and the rituals though why don’t we always assume that black people are broke i’m very curious i’m very curious i don’t know i think we need to start actually having like real conversations about reparations right and like what reparations actually look like or just recognizing that the trauma and the history that uh has been affected on black people like i think about like uh literacy right you can’t tell black people for 200 plus years that you can’t read and then give them books and be like why aren’t you reading why aren’t you reading without addressing that trauma i want to hear what your reactions are to black voters being synonymous with the democratic party we’ve been on the receiving end of about 50 years of an onslaught of pr it comes from our entertainers it comes from our ball players it comes from our singers it comes from the democratic politicians who some most of which are black and empty but are being used to sell us this idea of the democratic party being the home of african americans it’s not as much group think as people assume it is as much as it’s harm reduction who here believes that the black vote has been taken for granted oh yeah yeah yeah yeah here believes that the black vote should be courted more other than that yeah of course why don’t i don’t trust when they start courting us like i’m i’m always like oh god what do they want what are they trying to do and then we’re going to be left with nothing is it taking for granted of course should it be courted i guess i mean a person has to serve the majority so no matter who you vote for the majority of this country ain’t me now if you want to talk about micro level politics and councilmans and who’s sitting on the student board who’s sitting as the mayor now we could talk about that all day i strongly agree with him when he says that we don’t talk enough about local politics so that’s where i’m at guys i appreciate it everyone signed up can i take a picture
