Trump spoke about the nightmare world of the American Inner cities during his run. He was the only one that regularly did. He said "what did" Blacks "have to lose " by voting for him. This since the plight of inner city folks happened mostly "on the democratic watch".
Well no not entirely, but still. He said that he'd "do" something.
One thing that stays with me that he said, "...Blacks deserve better". Granted he didn't mean it. Still the words were said. 13% of Blacks did vote for him behind that. I actually don't blame them. If only he meant it. If only 'any' politician meant it.
It occurred to me that like "Only Nixon could go to China". Perhaps this flawed reviled man is the only one, if the Angels lead him, The only one that could actually address the old wounds of this country.
We are in a profoundly frightening, and unique period in our history, and this man is a wild card. Wild cards sometimes do the right thing if only by accident. I'm trying to see the possibility of light in our so very dark situation.
We as a nation just accept that a portion of our country will always have a body count of a minor war...period. It stays with me that only Trump brought that up in that way. Sometimes the Devil tells the truth to shame the Angels.
