MLK’s Daughter: Black Men Favor Trump Over Biden

( – Martin Luther King Jr.’s youngest daughter, Bernice King, recently told one media outlet that the Biden campaign needed to come up with new ways to reach black voters who were “very disgruntled right now” with his administration. King is the CEO of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. She said that she believes black people feel like nothing has changed for them since Biden became president, which is driving them toward former President Donald Trump. She made clear that she was not speculating about the shift, telling the outlet that black males are “more attracted to Donald Trump and his candidacy.”

In recent weeks, Biden has endeavored to regain lost support, especially with black male voters. He gave a speech at the all-male Morehouse College in Atlanta on May 19 in hopes of boosting support among black college graduates. Later that day, he spoke at an N.A.A.C.P. dinner in Detroit. On May 16, Biden met with some of the plaintiffs from the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case that ended segregation in public schools. The next day, he delivered a speech at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where he attempted to paint Trump as a racist for his opposition to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.

Biden has long claimed that he decided to run for president after the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a mix of individuals protesting the removal of a statue of General Robert E. Lee, as well as a group of neo-Nazis, clashed with counter-protesters. Trump correctly differentiated between the people who were there to protest the statue’s removal and the extremists, but nonetheless, Biden, the Democrats, and the media still continue to claim that he was supportive of the neo-Nazis at the rally.

A new poll from The New York Times and Siena College showed Trump receiving more than 20 percent support from black voters in battleground states. If that poll rings true in November, Trump will make history for the Republican Party.
