Billionaires Aren’t Feeling Our Economic Pain

It’s funny to me to see all of the people who are showing up at Trump Tower to meet and speak with Donald Trump, specifically our black ball players and those artists in showbiz.  What I find to be interesting is the level of access that Trump is providing these celebrities.  It could be looked at as a positive thing if it wasn’t for the rhetoric that he espoused on the campaign trail.  On the flip side of it I am not surprised by the level of access and who it has been afforded to.  We live in a class system in the U.S.  and whatever economic stratum people reside in, they will usually find others within their group to congregate and communicate with.

So many in Trumps cabinet are billionaires, and if they aren’t they have much more money than the majority of us living down here on ground zero.  I haven’t seen the local community activist meeting with Trump.  I haven’t seen the poor farmer who’s having a hard time with crops and sales, I haven’t seen him/her get an invite to Trump Towers to sit down with Donald.  Just being honest I haven’t even seen the poor white guy, the one living in the foothills of West Virginia, whose job was outsourced five years ago and he’s been scraping to make ends meet ever since, I haven’t seen him at Trump Towers either.  So I’m seeing a lot of money people showing up for the photo ops and the smiles and handshakes but what does that mean for us poor folk down here struggling?  And even more can these rich even relate to our struggle?

Trickle down economics never worked, it never trickled down to us and quite frankly it probably never will.  It would take a special kind of person to put their focus on wealth building for poor communities.  There is always talk about programs but never any real substantive conversation about eliminating or at least putting a dent in the wealth gap that so divides us in this country.  And if we think that the powerbroker, the rich, are going to get together and talk about ways to enrich our communities we are sadly mistaken.  If that were the case they would at least invite us into those conversations, because they would want to make us inclusive of that.  That’s not their agenda and we need to be aware of that and come to the realization that we have to make it happen ourselves.  We have to have our own meetings down here at ground zero and talk about enriching ourselves.  Our meeting place may not look like Trump Towers but it doesn’t have to.  It can be the local library, community center or wherever we need to go to talk and build.  The time for waiting for the rich to talk and make moves for us, that time never was and it never will be.

    I’m going to say my position on this one is to err on the side of caution and pay attention to the fact that Dump never said one positive thing in reference to African Americans during his entire campaign. I’m not fooled by the “Thank you tour” either we all know that was a rub it in your face, “I stole the election so there.” Double minded individuals talk out both sides of their necks. Can’t trust a single word they utter. Dump personifies this very kind of individual. Sad to say that the billionaires can’t identify with someone who is not. They don’t have to be concerned about the simple everyday things that those of us in the working class do. Every need they have or whim they have is provided for. Hollywood is just a camp for the elietes, no reality resides there at all.
