- Trump received the Bipartisan Justice Award at a historically black college for his criminal justice reform accomplishments. Out of all of the beneficiaries of Trump’s First Step Act, 91% of the total inmates released have been Black Americans! Unfortunately you don’t see this headline on liberal media outlets as much as we should.
- permanently increased federal funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities. In last couple years, funding increased by more than $100 million, a 17% increase, more than any President in history
- increased funding for school choice by $42 million and has called on Congress to pass school choice legislation so no child is trapped in an under-performing school because of the school district they live in
- Opportunity Zone Incentives to promote investment in low-income communities
- In 2018 and 2019 African-Americans and Hispanics were enjoying their lowest unemployment rate, and highest median income in their history, largely due to President Trump’s policies.
- President Trump supports funding for police, as 81% of Blacks want an increased police presence, despite leftist media’s misleading reporting
The bipartisan FIRST STEP Act that Trump championed was, in large part, an effort to alleviate the mass black incarceration created by the 1994 omnibus crime bill that Biden has “no regrets” about writing.
And what does Biden promise black voters, apart from unwarranted fearmongering about a “white supremacist” threat? He’s just offering the same policies that have failed the black community for decades: high immigration, high taxes, and fake-compassionate, dead-end handouts that offer no way out and up for America’s brothers and sisters.
Daniel J. Hopkins and Samantha Washington set out to measure the effect of Trump’s election on anti-black and anti-Hispanic prejudice, using a randomly-selected panel of 2,500 Americans whose changing opinions have been under study since 2008.
Americans, claim Hopkins and Washington, have actually become less inclined to express racist opinions since Donald Trump was elected. Anti-black prejudice, they found, declined by a statistically-insignificant degree between 2012 and 2016, before Trump was elected. But then after 2016 it took a sharp dive that was statistically significant. Moreover, contrary to their expectations, the fall was as evident among Republican voters as it was among Democrats. There was also a general fall in anti-Hispanic prejudice, too, although this was more evident among Democrat voters.
