POLL: More Americans think ‘life has gotten better’ for blacks under Trump than Obama

June 18th, 2019

A new poll shows Americans believe Trump has done more for blacks than the nation’s first black president, Barack Obama, though many want the government to do more.

Americans were more than twice as likely to believe that life has improved for young black Americans since Trump took office than when Obama left office, and many believe things could be better if the president and Congressional Black Caucus were on friendlier terms.

From Rasmussen Reports:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters think life for young black Americans has gotten better since Trump’s election. Slightly more (36%) say life is worse for young blacks now, while 22 percent rage it as about the same. These findings have changed very little from a year ago.

By comparison, in July 2016, Obama’s final year in office, just 13% said life for young black Americans had gotten better since the election of the nation’s first black president.

SUIT: San Fran has ‘longstanding practice’ of ‘discriminating against white males’

June 18th, 2019

A dozen white cops in San Francisco are suing the city over a grading system for promotions that results in preferential treatment for minority officers, reopening an issue that’s plagued the department for decades.

A practice of “banding” promotional test results for San Francisco police put in place in 1979 results in minority candidates with lower scores landing promotions over whites with higher scores, and the officers – 12 white men and one white lesbian woman – are asking a federal court to make it stop, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The “banding” system is the result of a 1973 lawsuit against the city by black and female officers alleging discrimination in hiring and promotions, and the law was upheld in 1992, when the San Francisco Police Officers Association sued to end the discrimination against whites.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is feeling optimistic about his chances to rise from obscurity in the 2020 Democrat primary to take on President Trump, and he’s not going to let every poll get him down.

While de Blasio isn’t even provided as an option in most 2020 presidential polls, he was included in a recent poll of 600 Iowa voters and not a single one said they planned to vote for the “progressive” candidate.

The Hill pointed out the embarrassment Monday, providing de Blasio the opportunity to spin it into a good thing.
