FutureCast 2016: The black community was in shock when Donald J. Trump announced he would immediately look into reparations as he was concerned about a conversation with friend and supporter Dennis Rodman. Trump said, “The Blacks and Native Americans have been treated badly by a system run by the left and democrats who didn’t bother to take care of their local cities, districts and states. Look at Michigan (water); Minnesota (state agencies not hiring POC, wealth/education gaps) and Chicago (murders). That ends today.”
The challenge the mainstream media has with the spreading of anti-Trump propaganda is that the lower one-third of the black community does not read their news via the websites, nor do black Minnesotans pick up a Star Tribune (Minn. local paper). Each of these outlets depend on pluralistic ignorance, or the message of anti-Trump passed down in conversations by people who might have seen a headline but never clicked on a link or read the story but do not have the critical lens in which to process liberal propaganda targeted to the black community and its members.
