Trump is living in the real world and also looking at data. Do you think he just makes it up?
Yes, clearly Trump just makes it up. When he tweets that 82% of white murders are committed by blacks, he made it up (or retweeted something that someone else made up.) When he says of Kaine "He also oversaw a huge increase in illegal immigration, a tremendous increase," he is making it up since it has been pretty constant. When he says about Clinton "She wants to raise taxes on African-American owned businesses to as much as nearly 50 percent more than they're paying now", that is completely made up.
I can get graphs and charts showing the exact opposite of what you are showing. It's all about how you massage the data. It's meaningless when you are talking about real lives.
Bullshit. The data reflects real life, real deaths, real crimes. Your anecdotal data represents the bubble you live in. But if you believe this, go for it. Spin real crime stats from New York or Los Angles or Chicago to show me how crime has gotten worse in the last thirty years. You can use 1990 or 1980 instead of 1986 if that helps.
I've asked you, or any of your compatriots decrying that Trump is wrong to show me where people in the black community are yelling from the rooftops about how much better their lives are now since Obama became President.
Yeah, and I looked it up and got a bunch of hits, but unless you research it yourself, you are going to continue to live in your world where you believe what I say is spun and twisted, so try looking it up yourself. It's not that hard, but you have to leave Trumpland to do it. I will leave you with a quote from one of those articles I found, this one describing Cohen's attempt to defend Trump.
“When they say that Donald Trump has a 1 percent favorability amongst the African-American community, I know from my own interactions that that number is absolutely and unequivocally inaccurate. I speak on a weekly basis to more than 100 African-American evangelical preachers who are all committed to ensuring Donald Trump becomes the next president of the United States. ... Unanimously, these African-American evangelical preachers all acknowledge that Donald Trump is colorblind when it comes to race and is only interested in ensuring that all Americans have the opportunity to thrive and achieve the American dream.”
Cohen’s brazenness, too, is an old lesson-plan from the code book of racism: The few blacks you talk to, who tell you they agree with you, outweigh studies, surveys and polls, demonstrations and all the other voluminous evidence of what the opinion of the mass of black Americans really is. In the decades before Jim Crow fell the Southern segregationists and their Northern fellow travelers played this dirty game all the time.
Is that really a game you want to play?
