One of the main themes of liberal propaganda has been that Trump will destroy the progress of minorities. As a Puerto Rican female, I for one, refuse to drink the leftist Kool-Aid and entirely reject their puffery. In fact, I believe the policies proposed by Trump will benefit the minority community and expose the rank hypocrisy of liberal racism.
Minorities are a sizable part of Trump’s proposed cabinet members. Thus far, Trump has selected five female appointees, only three less than President Obama appointed in all eight years of his presidency. In addition, three of Trump’s female picks are also minorities.
With a respectable number of skilled females and racial minorities in the President’s cabinet, Trump’s presidency will likely offer a variety of different perspectives. And that’s a good thing for America
After all, who did President Trump entrust as a campaign manager? A woman –Kellyanne Conway. Indeed, it was Kellyanne who led him to victory. In fact, she is the first woman to manage a successful presidential campaign. But you wouldn’t know that if you read the news. If Conway were a Democrat, she would likely grace the cover of every rag across the country – from Vogue to Harper’s Bazaar and just about everything in between. But because she’s a conservative woman there is nary a good word to be found about her in print. Now that she’s been appointed as counselor to the President, let’s see if they are still able to ignore her. Put that in your pipe, leftwing media, and smoke it.
Regardless of any evidence presented, however, liberals continue to bleat like sheep that women will lose all of their rights under a Trump presidency. With many females working with him, this idea of inequality seems quite far-fetched.
What about Trump’s policies: will they be beneficial to minorities, or will they lead to the dying out of entire races?
Trump has called for the rebuilding of infrastructure, increased investments, and increased policing in minority communities. Many families in these areas are scared for their lives each day due to the violence in their neighborhoods. With a bounty of abandoned buildings, “crack houses,” and drive by shootings, it certainly seems that poverty areas need a bit of an overhaul.
One of my favorite policies proposed by President Trump is School Choice. Quite simply, it puts the power of education into the hands of the parents – where it rightly belongs. This is certainly beneficial for minority communities, whose parents will be able to transfer their children to a safer school and out of impoverished areas.
Despite the many ideas that our new President has proposed to aid minority communities, liberals still believe that he is a bigot. Many of my millennial colleagues have bought into this hook, line, and sinker.
As a university student, I walked across campus on Election Day, surrounded by white students screaming that Trump is a white supremacist and “Like, literally Hitler reincarnate.”
Unfortunately, these students have been pressured by their liberal professors to believe that they are privileged, and must make up for this advantage by trying to save the helpless minorities. Of course, by minorities, they mean blacks, Hispanics, and Muslims, as other minority groups simply do not count. Good luck trying to make sense of that.
I am not buying into the supposed institutional victimization that liberals attempt to force on me. In fact, liberals might just learn something from Trump on how to talk to minorities.
News flash – we are tired of the so-called progressives pushing the myth that all of us little people — you know, minorities — are victims with no chance of getting ahead in life. We are also tired of being referred to as some separate species needing increased sensitivity.
These left-leaning voices also demean minorities by believing the only way to get the minority vote is to appeal to us specifically. For example, I do not need a Vice President pick like Tim Kaine to speak Spanish every chance he gets to attract me to a certain candidate. Do liberals think minorities will be swayed simply because someone speaks “our” language? Please. But I suppose some really are stupid enough.
Just like every other citizen in the US, minorities care about the economy, foreign policy, social issues, etc. We are not abstract creatures as liberals try to make us out to be, and President Trump seems to understand that.
Minorities, including my fellow Puerto Ricans, must wake up to the damage that has been done to our communities due to the liberal agenda, most recently experienced under former President Obama, in which blacks are economically struggling. Not to mention former President Bill Clinton, who enacted the 1994 Crime Bill which increased the sentencing time for black Americans.
And by the way, when I say the damage has been done to “our” communities, I am referring to all US citizens suffering from the 116% increase in national debt accumulated under Obama’s presidency.
In daily life, we all struggle together. Regardless of what liberals tell us, minorities do not only care about minorities, and white people do not only care about white people. The liberal group-think mindset of us vs. them must come to an end, as it has proven to be incredibly harmful to the unity of this nation.
President Trump emphasizes that he aims for us all to prosper.
In any event, if Trump does not deliver on his proposed policies, then to hell with him, too. We should all call him out if he does not work to keep his promises. That is, after all, why many voted for him in the first place. Conservative-minded minorities do not want typical false promises from a politician or adherence to ideologies. We want open-minded legislation that will benefit all hard-working individuals and not just specific groups.
