Democrats are losing Black voters. Here’s why!

“Judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.” — Martin Luther King Jr.

“It should be deeply worrying that, according to recent polls, Democrats are losing support within the Latino communities and even among African American men…” — Senator Bernie Sanders, August 27, 2023 speaking at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College.

On August 24th, 2023 President Donald J. Trump flew to Atlanta, Georgia to be arrested, booked and have a mug taken of him, like MLK, Jr.

Ironically, sixty years ago this month, on August 28th, 1963, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where over a quarter million people had gathered along the great reflecting pool to advance the cause of civil rights, especially equal justice under the law.

Since the release of that mugshot of Trump there has been a wave of social media posts expressing outrage, primarily from black Americans.


ANSWER: Because blacks have, like Trump, been victims of a biased and unfair justice system in America.

Upon leaving his booking in Atlanta, Georgia President Trump’s motorcade took a detour through urban, poor neighborhoods. The reaction and support from those living in these communities, primarily black families, was the reason he’s now one of them. Many of them have been booked, like Trump, on false charges.


On April 25, 2019 Adrianne Haney from the Associated Press wrote this about what is happening in Atlanta, Georgia,

Trump spoke at an annual conference of health, law enforcement, elected and other officials who work to combat drug abuse and addiction, and used the appearance to advocate for the wall he wants to build on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying it will help keep drugs out of the U.S. His wife, Melania, introduced him.

During the summit, President Donald Trump pledged to battle the deadly epidemic of opioid drug abuse “until our job is done” and he claimed progress even though it is unclear whether the crisis has diminished.

“My administration is deploying every resource at our disposal to empower you, to support you and to fight right by your side,” Trump said. “We will not solve this epidemic overnight but we will stop. … We will never stop until our job is done.”

Opioid abuse claimed a record of nearly 48,000 American lives in 2017. An estimated 2 million people are addicted to the drugs, which include both legal prescription pain medications and illegal drugs such as heroin.

While prescription opioids initially accounted for most deaths, the epidemic is now driven by illicit heroin and fentanyl. Those two drugs were implicated in the vast majority of opioid overdoses reported in 2017, according to federal figures.

Georgia’s overdose numbers are just as alarming. Between 2010 and 2017, opioid deaths in Georgia jumped 245 percent — accounting for more than 1,000 deaths in 2017 alone.

11Alive has done extensive reporting on the opioid epidemic and the impact it’s having on metro Atlanta’s suburbs.

Our team of digital investigators uncovered a startling 4000 percent increase in heroin-related deaths inside a geographic location identified as “The Triangle” in the wealthy suburbs of Atlanta.

That was the case at the time, but that area has grown.

Watch the full investigation, here.

Since Trump left office this opioid/fentanyl crisis has gotten much much worse across America.

Here are several postings on Twitter right after Trump’s mugshot heard round the world was released by the Atlanta DA’s office.


One man, Derrick Gibson, stands out in his view of how he, and the black community, relate to what is happening to President Trump.

Here are three black women’s take on what is happening.

This Sherriff understands who is truly responsible for the growing violence in our inner cities, like Atlanta—wicked persons.

Donald J. Trump as a fellow traveler

Remember then Senator Joseph Robinett Biden Jr.’s take on blacks holding public office.

Blacks relate to what Donald J. Trump, as a fellow traveler, simply because of what he is going through. Many black families have been victims of corrupt politicians and District Attorneys both white and black. For blacks and now Trump they both are victims of a two-tiered justice system.


America’s justice system is not only weaponized it is broken beyond repair

The are many who say that America’s justice system needs a do over. A purging of those who use the laws of our land for their own nefarious reasons, rather than enforce the laws of our land equally.

    People are waking up that we have no system of justice at the federal level now that the Marxist Obama 3/puppet Joe Biden regime is in charge. Merritt Garland, the head of the Dept of IN-JUSTICE is totally corrupt. So is the FBI and the Dept of Homeland Security and others.

    Black people are not stupid and are waking up to this situation as well as all other American ethnicities. This can not stand under our Constitution and the rule of law.
