President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist.

The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.
The pessimism goes well beyond assessments of the president. A 65 percent majority of African Americans say it is a "bad time" to be a black person in America. That view is widely shared by clear majorities of black adults across income, generational and political lines. By contrast, 77 percent of black Americans say it is a "good time" to be a white person, with a wide majority saying white people don't understand the discrimination faced by black Americans.

My father and both of my grandmothers all remember jim crow. My father still remembers colored only water fountains in the early 1970s. He said it can be (and was) worse.
not surprising, trump brought all the racists out of hiding
They weren’t hiding. None of this shit has changed behind closed doors what they were saying. It’s just acceptable to be mainstream again.

But remember, it's the white working class we have to reach out to so we can cure their imaginary economic anxiety!
