Donald Trump Makes Appeal To Black Voters During “Law And Order” Speech Near Milwaukee

Donald Trump traveled to Milwaukee to deliver a speech on law and order in the wake of the Sylville Smith police shooting and subsequent protests.

During his address, Trump made an appeal to African American voters. A portion of Trump’s remarks targeting African Americans included the following statements:

The Hillary Clinton agenda hurts poor people the most.

There is no compassion in allowing drug dealers, gang members, and felons to prey on innocent people. It is the first duty of government to keep the innocent safe, and when I am President I will fight for the safety of every American – and especially those Americans who have not known safety for a very, very long time.

I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different future.

It is time for our society to address some honest and very difficult truths.

The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community. Democratic crime policies, education policies, and economic policies have produced only more crime, more broken homes, and more poverty.

Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontre Hamilton and Founder of  Mothers For Justice United; and Nate Hamilton, Jr., Dontre’s older brother and Founder of The Coalition for Justice joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now to discuss Trump’s appeal to Black voters.

Are NC Republicans Using Voter Suppression To Steal 2016 Presidential Election?

North Carolina Republicans are doing just about any and everything to suppress the African-American vote, says NewsOne Now host, Roland Martin.

Just days after courts restored a week of early voting, Republicans are now drastically cutting early-voting hours.

The Charlotte Observer reported: “Mecklenburg County elections officials voted Monday to cut the overall number of hours from the 2012 election by 238.”

On Wednesday’s edition of NewsOne Now, Martin and his panel of guests discussed the GOP’s continued efforts to restrict access to the polls by people of color.

Army Of Moms Fight To Take Back Their South Side Chicago Neighborhood

Tired of waiting on help from outside the community, a group of mothers got together to do something about the violence themselves. They formed a group called M.A.S.K. – Mothers Against Senseless Violence.

The group is bringing back the “old way” of raising children in the African-American community. According to founder Tamar Manasseh, “We’re bringing back the village concept. We’re bringing back the time when grandma and mother sat on the front porch to watch the kids play and made sure didn’t nothing happen.”

Manasseh joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now to discuss the homegrown initiative to curb the violence that has seen violent crime rates skyrocket in the Windy City in recent months.
