Are we supposed to forget all the nasty things Trump has said since he entered the race

because he says he is resetting his campaign now? Are we supposed to not remember the any of it?
And how does he get away with calling Hillary a liar and the media repeating that meme without offering on shred of evidence while he is never called a liar with tons of footage to prove it?

If you are AA and collect unemployment benefits, social security, Medicare, Medicaid, veterans benefits, and a myriad of education related subsidies and benefits and can vote without being harassed you just can't say that the Democrats have not done anything for you and always have taken you for granted.

And although some really vulture bankers and lenders baited and switched on a lot of AA during the Clinton administration, Bill Clinton's ideas and policies to lower the financial standards for home ownership was primarily to help more minorities to become home owners (which many did and did not default and still have those homes).
Many were lifted out of poverty during that time but unscrupulous bankers and vulture capitalists used a good idea to make obscene profit and destroy many lives.

This latest effort to drive a wedge between AAs and Hillary and between AAs and immigrants is nothing short of shameful to me.

It remains to be seen how short that is.

Even with this 12th (I think) reset, never fear, Trump will lose it again in front of the camera or on Twitter.

We won't forget. That's why our nominee is who she is. And that's a fact.

There's a little piece of revenge in the hearts of myself and a few other black women I know who want to see the Republicans who have been hanging around since 1994 brought to heel. It's time - and Clinton - she can get it done.

I can't wait for November 9th when those people are thoroughly humiliated.

I'm going to say it - I'm a black woman and I guaran-effing-tee that Trump will never get our vote.

The 'black voters' - we don't forget. That's the thing - so no concern issues need to be dealt with by our non black fellow Democratics.

We don't forget.

It's in our blood - that's why we are railing about red lining that happened 56/60/70 years ago. Trump is in a bubble and anyone who thinks we'd fall for his bullshit has SERIOUSLY underestimated how severely under attack we have been since the mid 1990's - and that has NOTHING to do with the Clintons.

It has do with those fucking asswipes winning on our broken backs.

Trump and Katrina (who is NOTHING like me - I mean I've never stolen from a store/entity or cheated on unemployment benefits)can go fuck themselves.

And if that's not 'nice' - well white republicans and wannabes (I'm looking at you Dirtbag Pierson) aren't nice to us. So fuck 'em.

Your time would be better spent railing against white men in the rust belt who think I took something from them and want to inflict pain as a result.

Sorry - but it is true.
