      Was able to watch it & your impression is correct. Pres. Trump was well received by the audience. He seemed completely at ease addressing them. He & audience had great rapport & fun interactions the entire time. Even I was smiling while watching!

    Sundance – I love that picture collage – “you got mainstream African-American who articulate and bright and clean and…nice-looking …” creepy joe might say.

    He might not say that though, cause they “ain’t BLACK” since they ain’t voting for him…

    Great speakers before President Trump.

    Strong enthusiastic audience for all the speakers and particularly President Trump. President Trump captivated the audience. Worth watching if you missed it.

      I enjoyed it myself watching it on OAN. Herschel Walker is still very loved here in Atlanta (and most of Georgia). You can tell he and our President are truly buddies when they are together!

    I was listening to this on WSB in Atlanta. President Trump has balls of steel!!! He took it to BLM and talked about how they were hurting the black community, gave the BLM history of being marxist and anti capitalist, to a mostly black audience. NO FEAR!!!!

    Watch this from the start because there are some Very. Good. speakers at this. Many people from across the U.S. who are running GOP races, Pastors, Ben Carson, sports peeps, etc etc etc.

    Really hoping Angela Stanton King gets elected to John Lewis’ seat there in GA.

    It’s excellent!! Start to finish.

              I forget, too. I began his administration keeping a spiral notebook of accomplishments and by next Tuesday I was already behind. I wish there was a binder where we could print up all the daily accomplishments and just insert them easily. And have another for the second administration, because that will fill up quickly, too.

      sunnydaze; Thanks.

      I followed your suggestion and was very glad I did. Bravo to RSBN and our CTH for providing a long recording of the event. Everyone I watched was impressive.

      These “black voices’ are inspiring and provide a peek into what can be if the divisive Dems and their corrupt media would get out of the way and let the positive creative thinkers and visionaries of the black communities heal the divide instead of encouraging senseless and destructive rioting like the Democrats.

      Trump’s Presidency has provided an opportunity to implement positive change on a large scale but he must be elected for it to continue. A Dem gov’t will just patch the holes in the restrictive fence around their political plantation and stifle the visionaries.

      Religious freedom is at stake and all the Christians who hope to continue worshipping God in their own way should be voting for him.

    POTUS was awesome! I didn’t know what to expect when I first tuned in, but I was glued to the screen. The speakers were awesome too, esp Herschel Walker and Ben Carson. You could tell by the audience’s reaction that they know the truth about VSPGPDJT’s accomplishments and LOVE HIM! I am surrounded by liberal democrat-voting lo-fos and am posting the link to this so some of them will hopefully see the truth for themselves. No one can tell them anything positive about POTUS b/c they have been brainwashed and are eat up with TDS. If you haven’t seen it, watch. If you have, watch it again; worth a second viewing.

            You wont achieve any of the bigger issues if black America isnt decoupled from Democrats.
            Thats what Trump is doing.

            Thats how creating black empowerment zones saves the wall, conservative judges and ultimately America.

            The way he will do it also ensures the money spent isn’t going through Democrat middlemen o the Plantation

      Election/Campaign MARKETING would be my first guess.

      Plenty BLACK democrats that NEED to hear words like “black” and “empowerment” and even “zone (SAFE area) IF they are to be finally swayed to vote President Trump.

      You have the luxury of being narrowly focused and non-racist – think of the blacks that instinctively, reflexively want to vote democrat – now comes the “black empowerment zone” – PLATINUM!” – from President Trump.

      Hit my sister in law and cousins over the head with THESE words a few times – get a dent lol!

            The best thing about these is that Trump has been
            good about making sure that the money isn’t
            misallocated.

            We had PLENTY of “empowerment zones” money
            flowing into Atlanta during the Olympics and around
            the time of Jimmy Carter’s Atlanta Project.

            Millions, millions, millions. The vast majority of which
            was squandered. The usual “success story?”. 5 million
            allocated, maybe 100 jobs tops obtained. Do the math.
            The jobs rarely lasted past one year.

          The once-mainstream Democrat Party has been pushing universal paycheck, and open, Marxist rebellion in American cities.
          The genius of Trump is being able reach this embattled Black community with a different message: to love our country, and to work for a living in a dignified manner if only given the opportunity to work. And, by the way, that it’s also immoral to destroy private property, and to harm other human beings.
          These simple messages, no matter how they are worded, are a million miles away from the socialistic rebellion that Dems are pushing.
          Big, big win for Donald The Great! If he is successful in repatriating Blacks to the Republican Party, Democrats, without 90% Black support, will wither and die.

            That is certainly my prayer and hope among many others. I merely express a continuing concern regarding the nuts and bolts (such as the actual words chosen and techniques used by POTUS and others in the government) of how these things may be accomplished.

            As I have acknowledged elsewhere, such concerns are yet another reason I could never be a politician.

      Ultimately, you are correct if it never makes a full conversion.

      Must learn to walk before you run. They have been held down and brainwashed by many of their own social change leaders for so long. It is an attitude of scarcity versus abundance. America is full of abundance, yet, to take advantage of others so they do not have to earn their way the American way, they teach the scarcity mentality beginning at very early ages. So it becomes ingrained. Some who learn to think for themselves and are willing to break free, gain abundance. The others have to see the better way in their own communities to know it even exists.

        Excellent and succinct. I fully agree having seen the modern day urban plantations run by the black dimocrat “elites” in every city with such demographics. Their “lower caste” black citizens are kept enslaved by public housing, welfare and (deliberately) failed schools and economies to ensure the required votes for perpetual power.

      Sorry, there is too much poverty and despair funded by Dems and their communist Uncle Toms – welfare for the central cities, tons of money for black criminal leaders who would spout party line. It almost destroyed the middle class that was developing well in the “black community” in the 1990s. President Trump knows that all successful changes start with an economic transformation in the base – in every area.

        We have to play both long and short. Fixing the schools is the only way to break the most violent, murderous, handout-wanting criminals in our society out of that pattern. Otherwise when David take over they’ll just open the old playbook and roll it all back.

    Why should the government help blacks to start businesses? Were there ever government programs targeted to helping the Irish, Italians, Jews, Koreans, Indians, Poles, Puerto Ricans, Vietnamese, etc., to start up businesses? I’m all for blacks starting up businesses . . . but let them do it themselves . . . as every other group has.

    And “Juneteenth” as a federal holiday? That would make two federal holidays created especially for blacks. Where are the federal holidays created for the groups listed above? Nauseating pandering! Why is President Trump sinking so low? We wouldn’t tolerate such nonsense from a leftist pol.

        IMO, when one is pandering they are NOT being genuine, because pandering is disingenuous in itself. Pandering is pretending to be in alignment with whatever group it is to whom you are pandering.

    Given the timing, I think it’s pandering too. But, maybe, getting inner-city Blacks to stop being a sub-culture is a good thing. Fewer “victims” means fewer recruits for the chaos-fomenting Democommies. That’s good for the country’s long-term stability.

    However, as an American who’s seen race relations unfold since the 60’s, I need to see more Blacks “owning” their life choices and embracing the “American Way” to success. It doesn’t just drop in your lap because you feel it’s owed you. Ask any Asian, Indian, African-Black, or Hispanic immigrant–they want to be part of mainstream culture and they embrace the societal “rules”.

    I really wish Blacks would do some group self-reflection.

      As long as the education system, media, and popular culture continues to inculcate the concept of perpetual Black victim-hood, no real progress will be made. The Dems will keep saying Blacks are victims of systemic racism and there will be no impetus to improve things from within.
