President Trump is notorious for embracing his racist views about minorities, whether it’s about discriminating black people regarding his housing developments or openly calling latino’s ‘rapists’.
Famed rapper Shawn Carter, or Jay-Z, who publicly supported Barack Obama’s presidency and favored Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign, gave his take on Trump’s racist tendencies on CNN’s The Van Jones Show. Shawn expressed his abhorrence to Trump’s view on race and told CNN’s Van Jones:
“It really is hurtful, more so. Like everyone feels anger, but after the anger, it’s really hurtful, because he’s looking down on a whole population of people, and he’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people and have beautiful everything. Like, this is the leader of the free world speaking like this.”
As always, Trump used his Twitter fingers and lashed out against Jay-Z by not addressing Jay-Z’s hurtful comments but crediting himself to be the reason why the black unemployment rate is low. He also stated that his policies contributed to black employment while ignoring his overall negative history with black people.
The black unemployment rate stands about a 6.8%, the lowest in history.
Trump continues to dismiss accusations about him being a racist and proclaims he is the ‘least racist person after his ‘shithole’ countries remarks about African & Latin nations. Instead of facing the repercussions of his own problematic beliefs, he continues to deny his own words and actions.
