President Donald J. Trump’s approval among black Americans is surging, despite certain fame-seeking former employees who will not be named in this article.
Today’s @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 36%
— Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) August 15, 2018
Obviously, Trump’s agenda is striking a chord in the black community, regardless of race-baiting mainstream press reports, constant tirades from tired race pimps like Reverend Al Sharpton, and the insistence that somehow the President is a racist because he believes that immigrants should come to America legally.
The high poll numbers actually make sense.
According to a 2018 Harvard-Harris poll, black Americans are the least likely demographic to favor more immigration – and not just illegal immigration -but legal immigration, too.
The poll shows that 85 percent of black Americans want less than one million legal immigrants, the current number allowed annually, to enter the United States every year. Further, 54 percent opted for the most stringent proposal on the poll – fewer than 250,000 new immigrants per year, or none at all.
The Center for Immigration Studies found in a 2010 study that black Americans are disproportionately affected by immigration.
“No racial or ethnic group has benefited less or been harmed more [by immigration] than the nation’s African American community,” the study found.
The study says:
Illegal immigrant workers tend to concentrate in labor markets that have high concentrations of legal immigrants and citizens (native born and naturalized who are from similar ethnic and racial backgrounds). It is more difficult for authorities to identify them under these circumstances and they can rely on networks of friends and family members as well as other employers and community assistance organizations composed of members of their same backgrounds to find employment. As a consequence, there is a tendency for illegal immigrants to cluster in metropolitan areas (especially central cities) or in rural areas that already have concentrations of persons from similar backgrounds.
Black workers also tend to be concentrated in metropolitan areas – especially in central cities. The only rural labor markets where black Americans are of significant number are in the Southeastern states – a legacy of the slavery heritage of yesteryear.
Thus, it is not everywhere that there is likely to be significant competition between low skilled black workers and illegal immigrant workers but there are ample circumstances where there is – such as the large metropolitan labor markets of Los Angles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and Washington-Baltimore. Moreover, some of the fastest growing immigrant concentrations are now taking place in the urban and rural labor markets of the states of the Southeast– such as Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia which never before were significant immigrant receiving states in previous eras of mass immigration. Indeed, about 26 percent of the nation’s foreign-born population are now found in the states of the South – the highest percentage ever for this region. There is mounting evidence that many of these new immigrants in this region are illegal immigrants.
These facts, combined with black cultural icons like Kanye West have declared their support for Trump paints a clear picture: By Republican standards, Trump is very popular in the black community.
Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement
Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”
Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.
“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.
“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”
Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.
“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”
Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”
Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.
“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”
He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.
“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.
Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.
“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”
Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
