    I work 2nd and 3rd shifts with 6 other security officers. 5 are Black. 3 of them have stated that they will vote for Trump. 2 of those are very adamant about it, too.

    I don't talk about political stuff at work, but when one of them mentions their vote for Trump, it makes me smile inside.

    Hope indeed. I have posted my observation in another thread that a black lady in her fifties next to me voted R page after page. The were no dividing panels between the screens so one could easily see.
    It's about time that LBJ's racist spell goes away.

    Can’t imagine ANY first responder NOT voting for Trump!

    Exactly.

    Whenever I see Biden/Harris signs, they're often accompanied by a BLM sign. It's a declaration: "I'm for socialism, and I'm against cops". When I see Trump/Pence signs, a sign supporting police is often there. Not once have I seen a sign supporting police with a Biden sign, nor a BLM sign with a Trump sign.

    The choice has never been clearer.

    Around here the only places I see Biden signs also have Union Home or Support Teachers signs as well. Thankfully I haven't seen a BLM sign in my (deep red 90% white, rural) area.

    It's sad about the union supporters though, they probably work at the mills and I can't imagine new green deal wants paper mills running anymore.

    Supposedly Trump approval among blacks is running at 31%.

    He won 8% of the black vote in 2016.

    Well, one good thing is, all of our brains are the same color. How we use them of course, is up to the individual.

    Biden should be campaigning in Harlem.

    I've heard several pundits speak on this. The 8% is consistently cited. I have heard that currently support is at 24%, 15%, and now your 31% figure.

    I have no idea which of those is correct. My favorite comment, however, came from the pundit that stated that if Trump gets at least 10% of the black vote, he wins. Not sure how he figures that but I like it!

    A lot of black people are tired of being viewed as helpless victims who need a nanny government to coddle them.

    I think people also see the hypocrisy of Democrats who fawn over the black struggle, but would never set foot in a minority neighborhood.

    The racism of low expectations, it was eventually going to be clear to people.

    The black and Hispanic vote will become the silent vote for Trump this year. This is where the left has missed it again and screwed the pooch. Here in MI, the Flint city council president came out and is supporting Trump. This is huge for MI and coming from Flint, MI of all places. Lil Wayne, Ice Cube and Fiddy Cent are also on board for the Trump train.......
