IT'S ALL THIS MAN'S FAULT!
So when we canâ€™t pay off our credit cards, our mortgage, our car notes, or our businesses are failing, or we hate our slavedriver boss but we canâ€™t quit because weâ€™re living paycheck to paycheck and are behind in our rent and just got a dispossess, or weâ€™ve got to go back down to the welfare office and sit all day waiting for them to tell us to come back tomorrow, everybody just remember this: itâ€™s all Donald Trumps fault!
I recently went to a free Trump wealth building seminar at the Hilton and I was astonished by the lack of African Americans in the audience.Â
I canâ€™t believe â€œweâ€? will spend hours getting ready for a music concert -- pay hundreds of dollarsÂ for tickets; what to wear andÂ the whole night out.Â We anticipate it with great excitement -- adrenaline flowing, mouth watering, just canâ€™t wait to get out and see our favorite entertainer do their thing for us.Â Two weeks?Â Oh my gosh!Â Why canâ€™t it be tonight!Â
We will get our hustle on to do all sorts of things, but most of us wonâ€™t get up and go to a FREE seminar given by one of the worldâ€™s richest men!Â Letâ€™s analyze what this is about:Â
Possible reasons why we won't go see Trump:
1.Â We donâ€™t like Trump because:
a.Â Back in the 80s we donâ€™t like some of the things he said.
b.Â We donâ€™t like his attitude.
c.Â We donâ€™t think he likes â€œusâ€?.
d.Â We donâ€™t like his hairdo!
e.Â Itâ€™s all his fault we arenâ€™t getting anywhere in life because he doesnâ€™t make himself â€œlikeableâ€? to us.
So when we canâ€™t pay off our credit cards, our mortgage, our car notes, or our businesses are failing, or we hate our slavedriver bosses but canâ€™t quit our jobs (plural) because weâ€™re living paycheck to paycheck and are behind in our rent and just got a dispossess, or weâ€™ve got to go back down to the welfare office and sit all day waiting for them to tell us to come back tomorrow, everybody just remember this: itâ€™s all Donald Trumps fault!
Some facts about Donald Trump:
1. Did you know that African Americans, in fact anybody other than the Anglo Saxon white race â€“Â even Jewish peopleÂ â€“ are not allowed in the private country clubs in Americaâ€™s elite Palm Beach, Florida â€“ no matter how much money you have*?Â Did you know that Donald Trump is the only private resort owner in Palm Beach that welcomes African Americans?Â Trumpâ€™s policy: â€œMy club is for anyone who can afford itâ€?.Â
2. Once an unemployed auto mechanic helped Trump get his limo functioning again after it died on the highway. The man was dead broke.Â Still, he wouldnâ€™t accept payment for helping out someone in need. Trump was so touched by this manâ€™s kindness and generosity that the next day, he sent flowers to the mechanic's wife and a letter certifying that the man's mortgage had beenÂ fully paid off. Now the Donald â€œwe knowâ€? would never have done that!Â He certainly didnâ€™t have to.
3. Trump is more attracted to people who have made it for themselves than people who are "members of the 'lucky sperm club'".
4. When he wrote The Art of the Deal, Surviving at the Top, The Art of the Comeback, How to Get Rich, he didnâ€™t say, Iâ€™m going to make sure this only gets into the hands of white people.Â And you know he could have if he wanted to!Â He wrote those books for anyone who wants to learn how to have a better life.Â How many of us own at least one of Trumpâ€™s books?
So, myÂ beloved Sisters and Brothers,Â while soothing one's soul by hatinâ€™ on â€œThe Donaldâ€?, Â just remember this â€“ he doesnâ€™t care!Â Heâ€™s got his.Â Heâ€™s got so much money he can do anything he wants with it or his time.Â But his passion is giving back.Â And heâ€™s willing to share the wealth with anyone who is willing to take action to make a better life for themselves and their families.Â Not because he needs heads to fill up his seminars.Â Believe me â€“ his presentation at the Hilton was standing room only.Â Latecomers, beware!Â
Note to Donald: Between you and me, IÂ believe you do care.Â Shhhhhh!Â It'll be our little secret.
