Skip to comments.Journey: How a Black Male Became a Trump Supporter
Posted on 08/22/2016 11:45:54 PM PDT by milowrites
I would like to preface this article with a statement that should be obvious: I am no expert in government affairs or foreign relations nor I did not spend hundreds of thousands of dollars earning a degree in political science so that I could discuss such matters. Im simply a man; a man with certain unique life experiences that have offered me varying perspectives of a few things. I am an Iraq war veteran though my job was working in a prison, so it was nothing of great danger- and Im also formerly homeless. Both of these are experiences that can drastically change how one views the world. Everything that I say here is based upon my own experience, my own journey. I will not be offering up line after line of skewed statistics; the highly educated pundits on the major news networks do a wonderful job of that already. What Im going to offer is my experience, my journey to where I am today: A Black Donald Trump supporter.

I am an Iraq war veteran
That right there will get you a vote in my town. I'm disturbed that neither of the final candidates for President of these United States has any military experience. Jim Webb was the only candidate with actual combat experience. And yes, I know he's a democrat. I hope Trump will seek his support.
A good read. I hope there are many more like him. Millions more.
Great research, and you’re an excellent writer. You actually summed up a lot of my thinking very eloquently.
I hope he can accomplish what he has said that he wants to in the White House. I voted for Reagan twice, and this is the first sign of hope since he left office.
Welcome to FR!!!
I don’t know how the blacks can sit back and allow the Democrat Obama Regime pour illegals and Muslim refugees into their economically strapped communities and not say anything? Don’t they realize that these immigrants are taking their jobs and driving up rent prices? You would think the Trump would be their savior from the consequences they have had to endure from a madness that aims to generate Democrat votes at the expense of the blacks. The Democrats know that every immigrant they can register to vote will vote Democrat. Blacks should have figured out by now that the Democrat party has taken the blacks for granted for decades and have kept them in poverty so they can be bought for their vote. The new immigrants are just more to be kept in poverty so the same formulae can be used on them for their vote. When are the blacks going to do the math and figure that 2 + 2 = 4?
If Jim Webb with all of his vast “military experience” is a good guy then why is he a democrat? Anyone with half a brain that cares about the US wouldn’t be.
You got me. I’m just lookin’ at his actual history.
Welcome to FR :)
You did far more research than 99% of voters! If only some of my friends would make the effort, they might come to similar conclusion!
Thank you for sharing your journey and thoughts!
I don’t think he needs any advice from Webb, a Democrat, when he has advisers like Gen. Flynn and numerous supporters like Duncan Hunter, a combat Marine. Trump attended a Military Academy in high school which undoubtedly influenced his lifelong quest for excellence. I would also note he follows very much the MacArthur and Patton brand of solving problems.
Victory against all odds.
Outstanding read, Milo.
Wish more people would take the time to do research. The media in this country is no friend of America and relying on them for important information is pure folly.
Welcome to FR!
There you go. bttt
Welcome to the FreeRepublic.
Impossible, no blacks are voting Trump
Welcome aboard. I’ll be sharing your article.
Excellent article. Very well written. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
If you go to Webb’s website and read articles he has written on race relations, you might find he and Trump are very close in opinion. I’m confused how Webb can be a Dem actually.
Are you speaking of Sen. Webb or his son?
I think Gen. Flynn is a dem too.
