  • Former President Donald Trump is catching heat for remarks he made about Black voters last week at an event in South Carolina.
  • The Republican presidential hopeful suggested Friday that he could relate to the generations of racism that Black people have experienced in the U.S. legal system given the four criminal indictments brought against him.
  • He claims the cases have attracted more interest in his campaign among Black Americans, saying, “A lot of people said that that’s why the Black people like me, because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against, and they actually viewed me as I’m being discriminated against. I think that’s why the Black people are so much on my side now because they see what’s happening to me happens to them.”
  • President Biden called his comments “shameful” and “racist” and that they “tap into a hatred and divisiveness that is the very worst of us.”
  • Do you think Trump’s comments were racist? Why?
