Today was going to be an entry about a past Black History fact that happened on this date years ago or something positive about an African American achievement. After watching the news yesterday and seeing Donald Trump’s sad and almost comical attempt to try and relate to African Americans and Black History Month at what he called “a little breakfast” that was supposedly held to kick off Black History Month, I just had to blog about it. I feel this man digs himself a deeper hole every single day that he opens his mouth. The fact that it has not even been an entire month and he has managed to propose the most ridiculous travel ban ever, focusing only on Muslims not being able to travel into the U.S. is not a shock. Nor is the fact that this “little breakfast” he held to make it seem like he can relate to any other race or human being other than himself resulted in a major failure.
Yesterday, Donald Trump met and sat in a room with only a handful of African American leaders. He was graced with the presence of phenomenal African American achievers, such as Ben Carson and Omarosa Manigualt. No prominent members of the NAACP or National Urban League were in attendance. Guess they already knew better, because it seemed the main focus of this meeting to Donald Trump was addressing the media and their “lies” about him (as always) and discussing in the most awkward ways, how he feels about the black community. He praised several obvious Black leaders that can be found in any public school history book, such as Fredrick Douglass and Harriet Tubman.
“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed,” Trump said. “Harriett Tubman, Rosa Parks and millions more black Americans that made America what it is today. Big impact. I’m proud to honor this heritage and will be honoring it more and more.”
