    The economy is improving and that will raise all boats. Reduction in rules and red tape can only help. If the tax cut goes through then this will help more. The cause of the inner city crime and poverty is anti marriage provisions in the welfare programs. Get rid of them.

    "...President Trump is not living up to his promise of being the “greatest champion” for the nation’s African-Americans."

    --- It was foolish to belive him in the first place. A man who lies like he breathes?

    "...depends on members of Congress and those in the administration exercising the backbone..."

    --- Congress has no backbone.

    “Stop tweeting,” he said.

    --- That's like asking The Donald to break his own thumbs.

    @JMHO;

    Conservative Christians have been pushing for this. Be careful what you ask for, you might get it.

    @lost in DC;

    We're only "miles ahead" if you're facing backwards.

    BO's policies were detrimental to all of us, so if trump is only harming one group, as a nation we are miles ahead.

    I guess they are no longer churches but political organizations.

    What has happened to the black community and many communities in general in our country is tragic. Too many absent fathers, mothers raising children on welfare and in poverty or working multiple jobs trying to support children alone. Violence, drugs and gang culture are not helpful either. Look at Chicago as just one example. Too many parents are incarcerated rather than working to take care of their families.

    More welfare is not the answer. Communities need to make stable families a priority, affordable education and housing, And, creation of jobs that pay a working wage. Education and training are one of the main answers to ending poverty. We always have billions to fund wars but not the above. The priorities in our country are a significant problem.

    Trump ran on a platform openly appealing to white nationalists, going well beyond "dog whistle" and coded comments.

    His core followers and most rabid supporters are openly expressing their animosity at black, Hispanic, immigrant, LGBT and other Americans who aren't straight, white and Christian.
