    Read these three and get back to me.
    Why do you always feel the need to derail/spam my threads?

    Mmm, let's see who to believe. You or John Lewis - civil rights hero? No contest on that one.

    Laughable just like Trump that you think things are worse now then where there was actual slavery, beatings and lynchings.

    A study by Nielsen, upends many of the stereotypes that come with the national focus on just the socioeconomic challenges of blacks. Some of the key findings of the report:

    African American income growth rates outpaced those of non-Hispanic whites at every annual household income level above $60,000.

    The largest increase for African American households occurred in the number of households earning over $200,000, with an increase of 138%, compared with a total population increase of 74%.

    The rate of black high school graduates enrolled in college increased in 2014 to 70.9%, exceeding the rate of all high school graduates in the nation.

    African-Americans Are Increasingly Affluent, Educated and Diverse

    Your implying that blacks are somehow doing better than whites is deplorable.

    We can all bring up statistics to prove a point, but you should know better than that.

    I could prove to you with stats how Latino's are doing better than whites, how Asians are doing better than whites, hell......how mermaids are doing better than whites.

    It will take generations to erase the discrimination and racism that has formed the "black culture" and people think that because we passed the amendments to give individuals rights that all of a sudden blacks and women became equal overnight.

    Trumps is saying whatever he thinks will give him a better chance of winning.

    Hillary is saying whatever she thinks will give her a better chance of winning.

    They are exactly the same in that regard.

    The truth does not matter to either of them.

    What Trump said was completely accurate in every way. African Americans are now worse off then any time since reconstruction. Violence rates are through the rough, drugs are infesting all parts, the single mother issue is insane..........he is right.
    Wrong.

    They aren't good now but I can't imagine what yardstick for "quality of life" Trump applied to conclude things have never been this bad before.
    And the 1930s. Good god - it was horrendous.

    Why should I even bother when you attribute things to me that I never said?
