Donald Trump has now proclaimed himself the only person who can save African-American families. But when he first began his real estate career, he was sued by the Justice Department for refusing to rent apartments to black and Latino tenants.
This pattern continued for decades. Likewise, regulators fined Trump's casinos for repeatedly removing black dealers from the floor. No wonder the turnover rate for his minority employees was way above average.
And let's not forget Trump leading the charge for the so-called "birthers" that promoted the racist lie that President Barack Obama is not really an American citizen. All part of a sustained effort to delegitimize America's first black president.
And this man asks African Americans "what they have to lose" by voting for him? He's delusional.
