Based on the result from last September, it showed Trump as taking one fourth of African American votes. This has caused Trump to assert that he is gaining 25% of the black community votes. The ejection of a group of 30 black students waiting for him to appear has, like it or not, a certain shade of racism based on history and context.
A group of 30 students at a Valdosta State University rally last Monday (Feb 29) evening were ejected by Trump’s security before the starting of the event. The students, who were later interviewed, said they were planning a quiet protest. Also, according to the students, the actions were ordered by Trump himself. This was later confirmed by Valdosta Police Chief, Brian Childress.
Obviously upset about the actions against them, one of the interviewed students expressed. "I think we got kicked out because we’re a group of black people. And like I guess people—what’s going on in America, they’re afraid we’re going to say something or do something. But we just really wanted to watch the rally. And to get kicked out because we’re a group of black people, it shows you how racist our own school is, that we can’t even go to our own school complex."
However, on Monday evening, right after the story was published, Hope Hicks, Trump’s spokesperson posted an email saying, “There is no truth to this whatsoever. The campaign had no knowledge of this incident.”
