WASHINGTON, D.C. (sentinel.ht) – Black people need to stop listening to MSNBC and their host-panelists, such as, Joy-Ann Reid and Charles Blow says Yvette Carnell of Breaking Brown.

“Day in and day out they lie to black people. They say ‘no, Donald Trump is wrong'” she said, but the data shows otherwise. Carnell left a message that was posted among Dr. Boyce Watkins’ network of Black thought leaders.

Trump Fights for Black Vote

Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, has made waves in recent days in his appeals to Black voters. He told them they were moreover jobless, in poverty, living in insecurity and poorly educated. Trump said he can change those dynamics by bringing in more and better jobs, making school choice available and criminal justice reform. Trump had made a big surge among African-Americans, seeing his numbers double from 7% to 14.6% in support in just two days of appealing to them.

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s candidate, has lashed back by holding a speech dedicated to tying Donald Trump to the Alt-Right movement and white supremacists. She is also running commercials showing the Ku Klux Klan support Trump.

None the less, Black Men for Bernie and other groups have begun gravitating to the Republican party. Trump’s message that Democrats have taken the Black vote for granted seems to be resonating. He has promised Black voters that after his first term in office, he would achieve 95% of the Black vote.
