The NAACP is suing the Trump Administration, claiming its commission to investigate voter fraud is meant to suppress minority voting. The group is also blasting Trump for declining an invitation to come speak at their convention this weekend in Baltimore.
I can understand why, in this atmosphere of violence and Trump Derangement, he might not want to venture before a hostile crowd in a city that’s recently been plagued with racial strife and riots, if for no other reason than public safety. And it’s never very comfortable attending a dinner given by someone who’s calling you a racist and suing you. Maybe you've been to family Thanksgiving dinners like that.
But personally, I always welcome the chance to speak to people who have a false or distorted idea of what I believe. I would prefer that Trump keep the Presidential tradition and speak there. He’s good in front of crowds, and if they’d just listen, they might be surprised to find he’s sincere about wanting to help bring better schools, safer neighborhoods and more job opportunities to the inner cities. When you don’t show up to explain yourself and engage people who oppose you, you’re letting your enemies’ definition of you stand. And frankly, I’m tired of letting the false racial stereotypes the left lodge against Republicans stand unchallenged.
