Byron Donalds Suggests Black Families Were Stronger During Jim Crow Era

While campaigning for the presidential candidate who is a convicted felon in Philadelphia, Trump stooge and Florida Rep. Byron Donalds suggested that Black families were better off during the Jim Crow era.

  • On Tuesday afternoon, the Trump campaign celebrated opening a field office in Northeast Philadelphia, one of the whitest neighborhoods of Philly. No Black Philadelphians were speaking at the afternoon event.
  • Rep. Byron Donalds spoke during a “Congress, Cognac, and Cigars” evening event at a cigar bar, aimed at garnering Black male voters.
  • Donalds was asked about the difference in politics between Black men and women. Notably, Trump’s support among Blacks is predominantly male.

”First of all, there’s a difference between men and women anyway,” Donalds said. “Men have been created by god to be conquerors, to be hunters. That’s who they are. And so a Black man in today’s America is looking around and saying, ‘How can I go hunt for my people and hunt for my family?’ … They’re looking at what Joe Biden has done and saying, ‘I can’t hunt! You took my spear. You took my bow.’”

  • Donalds also said that Black women may become Trump supporters over transgender rights and immigration issues.

Then Donalds said he is starting to see the “reinvigoration” of Black families, adding that it is “helping to breathe the revival of a Black middle class in America.” Donalds also claimed that the nuclear family — or one with a mother, father and children living under the same roof — and its values have been eroded by Democrats.

“You see, during Jim Crow, the Black family was together. During Jim Crow, more Black people were not just conservative — Black people have always been conservative-minded — but more Black people voted conservatively,” he concluded.

Needless to say, Donalds has had his ass handed to him by an assortment of normal people not ingratiating themselves to Trump.
