Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 19, 2017 it’s edition number 154 and we call it the Did Trump Dump Blacks? edition of the show with your hosts Hartford radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.
This week, we will discuss a pair of interesting articles about the African American community and the Trump Administration (the first is called Black America and Donald Trump and the second, from Vox, is The past year of research has made it very clear: Trump won because of racial resentment). The eternal question is naturally why do Blacks support the Democrats so overwhelmingly when the Democrats are working so hard to keep them down and marginalized? Also, was Trump in a position to break that mold only to surrender to racial dog whistles so as to appeal to his racist voter base? What is going on in the heads of the left if they think this is really what’s going on?
Next, we descend once again into the swamps of sexual harassment – this time talking about Tavis Smiley’s counter-attack against the misconduct accusations that have gotten him into deep poo poo. Do women as a whole suffer if the current climate treats them overwhelmingly as victims? Isn’t that a little condescending?
Our shower thoughts involve definitions and liberal friends. As for our hidden gem, we wanted to post a composite of 67 hip hop songs from 1989 until 2016 that alluded – often favorably – to Donald Trump. Alas we could not download it – so we link to it here. In the meantime, out hidden gem is *one* of the 67 aforementioned pieces by Nas entitled New World. Enjoy!
