According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Trump policies, racism, may cause some black women’s weight problems, a Rutgers professor says.”
“Brittney Cooper a Rutgers University professor believes President Trump’s policies and racism is causing black women’s weight problems.”
Okay…, all of these racism claims and Trump blaming are getting pretty ridiculous now!
Are President Trump’s racist policies causing me to stuff my face in order to make myself feel better?
“That’s the sort of question some black women may be asking themselves, a Rutgers University professor suggested during a recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Network.”
“Although, more accurately, the problem may be the stress and anxiety caused by the policies rather than the policies themselves, Brittney Cooper, who teaches gender studies at the New Jersey-based university, said on a recent episode of ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation.’”
It’s not the policies, stupid…, it’s the policies!
President Trump has not even been in office for three years.
I would be willing to bet that almost all of these women haven’t changed much since the “glorious” Obama years.
“Research shows black women lose weight more slowly than white women, and the Trump presidency may be exacerbating the situation, Cooper said on the program, according to CampusReform.org.”
This just keeps getting “stupider” by the minute!
‘“We are living in the Trump era,’ she said, ‘and look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.’”
President Trump’s policies are “killing your people?!”
Actually, millions of minorities have been lifted out of poverty.
Millions of minorities have been lifted off of food stamps.
Millions of minorities are finding jobs and getting better jobs and higher pay.
People have at least the same access to health care and insurance as they did under Barack Obama, and even better in most cases.
President Trump has implemented many new policies aimed at improving the economic situations of our inner-cities.
If you were being honest, you would have to say that minorities are definitely winning with President Trump.
According to the GOP website:
“President Trump has fostered a roaring economy for all Americans, driving down unemployment rates for minority groups, with African American, Asian, and Hispanic unemployment hitting record lows in recent months.”
“Under President Obama, African American unemployment was on average 5.2 percent higher than the general population, and Hispanic unemployment averaged 1.9 percent higher.”
“Under President Trump, not only has minority unemployment plummeted, but the unemployment gap has narrowed to 3 percent for African Americans, and 0.8 percent for Hispanics.”
The “Opportunity Zones” incentive is a new community investment tool, established by President Trump, in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. Opportunity Zones provide a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into dedicated “Opportunity Funds.”
“President Trump has focused on providing jobs training programs that help Americans who can’t afford a college education earn money while they learn.”
“In an effort to promote the growth of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), President Trump has increased funding for various HBCU programs.”
“Under President Trump, technical education and vocational studies, programs that are heavily utilized by minorities, have received $1.2 billion in funding.”
“Under President Trump, Obamacare’s harmful and costly individual mandate has been repealed and access to Short-Term Limited-Duration plans has been expanded in order to provide more affordable healthcare plans to the American people.”
“Premiums for these plans can be up to 80 percent lower than Obamacare healthcare plans.”
“President Trump has been an avid advocate of prison reform, supporting The First Step Act, sentencing reforms, and hosting a Prison Reform Summit where he sought input from over 100 activists, experts and policymakers. President Trump plans to address the partisan divide in Congress on improving prison conditions and better-preparing prisoners for re-entry into society.”
“The First Step Act, which would place federal prisoners closer to home, allow more home confinement for lower-level offenders, and expand prison employment programs, has also been signed into law.
And these are just a few of the horrible injustices and terribly racist policies, championed by President Trump, that should keep African-American women up at night and stuffing their faces!
‘“I hate when people talk about black women being obese,’ Cooper continued. ‘I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create.’”
We feel for you and your sisters Ms. Cooper. I’ve heard reports that the day after President Trump’s inauguration day, hordes of republican staffers invaded our inner-cities, literally stuffing food down the throats of African-American women.
Damn those whiteys for building all of those KFC’s, Pizza Huts, Popeye’s, McDonald’s and Taco Bells!
“She added: ‘It’s literally that the racism that you’re experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.’”
I’ve heard it said that we create our own hell.
“We create our own hell, it is the sum of all our decisions – we are not sentenced, we condemn ourselves.” ― Gabrielle Estres
If we choose to see everything through a pair of racist glasses, that is exactly what we are going to see.
“In a separate interview, Cooper told CampusReform.org she was citing 1990s information from Dr. Arline Geronimus, a public health research professor at the University of Michigan.”
“Geronimus ‘argues pretty convincingly that black women have physiological stress responses to racial stimuli and this affects our long-term health,’ Cooper said.”
I don’t think many people would argue that stress in general can have a definite affect our health.
“I was citing this body of work and the president’s status as a racially polarizing figure that contributes to issues of racial stress for people of color.”
I would contend it is the sum of our democrat “friends” and the liberal propaganda main stream media who are fraudulently creating racial stress in our country at President Trump’s expense.
Ask a liberal to find a direct quote of President Trump’s or a real example of one of his policies that can be identified as being racist.
They won’t be able to do it…, because there aren’t any!
They have been told, and are continually being told there are, and they are taking these libelous accusations as the truth…, which they are not.
