How the Fuck Did Trump’s Black Vote Grow in 2020?
Thousands of African Americans really wanted a second term for one of history’s most racist presidents
There is a branch of Islam referred to as the Five Percent Nation. Its name derives from the belief that the world population is broken down into three percentages. Eighty-five percent of people are ignorant to the evil of the world in which they live and the fact that the original man is the Black man. The 5% — the Five Percenters — know the truth within and around themselves and aim to “civilize” the 85% with education. Then there’s the remaining 10% of the population. They are as aware as the Five Percenters, except their agenda is to curate practices and systems that keep the masses “deaf, dumb, and blind.”
While the Five Percent Nation was created by and for the betterment and protection of Black men and women, it’s an unfortunate fact that a significant portion of the 85% includes Black men and women.
The 2020 presidential election was a prevalent reminder. More than 70 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Of those voters, an estimated 10% are African American. (Poll numbers range from 8% to 12%.) In 2016, 6% of all Trump voters were Black. Incredible that in 2020, the president most associated with White supremacy and unapologetically vocal on where his allegiances and biases stood raised his African American numbers. While the percentage of Black women who backed Trump remained in the single digits, it’s still concerning that it doubled from 4% in 2016.
Voting for Donald Trump while Black is a race crime. Black-on-Black crime, in fact.
The high-wattage shocker is that Trump’s largest Black support comes from men. Four years ago, 13% of all male African American voters chose Trump as their leader. In 2020, an estimated 18% desired another four years of his regime. That is as deflating as it is infuriating. Voting for Donald Trump while Black is a race crime. Black-on-Black crime, in fact.
These are the same impaired African Americans who proclaim that Trump has done more for Black people than any U.S. president since Abraham Lincoln. (Let’s be clear: Any Black person who paints…
