You could do with some of that “accurate disagreement” advocated in the article. Many Trump supporters voted for Obama. They view Black Americans as Americans. They believe in equal rights and fair play apply to everyone, regardless of skin color. They believe in stopping illegal immigration. They want better trade deals and fewer pointless foreign military adventures. They oppose police defunding: they think everyone in every neighborhood deserves security and safety. They believe in school choice. Trump did a lot of outreach to Black communities and increased his share from 7% to 12% of the Black vote. If you approach it with an open mind, you might find Trump’s brand of Populism has a lot to offer Black Americans.
