In the Sun Herald on Saturday, an article addressed the visit by President Donald Trump to the new Civil Rights Museum in Jackson. In the article, a black gentleman, who owns an auto repair shop, made several statements that I call into question.
He states that three miles from the new museum there are rutted roads, littered lots, abandoned houses and shuttered plants and warehouses. I question how long have those conditions existed. Was it the same during the previous administration? Did he imply that our President caused that deterioration of conditions; and that it just happened since Donald Trump was in office?
He may not be aware that those conditions are present in other states, even those with a small black population. Did he expect President Trump to make improvements in every small community even while he was dealing with much larger issues?
