The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

Ask almost any Democrat and they'll tell you that ... Donald Trump is a full-blown racist. He's anti immigrant and absolutely, positively, anti-Latino, given his position on the need to secure our southern border with Mexico.

It's odd, therefore, that under Trump, Latinos are doing well. In fact, amazingly well. Steve Cortes reports:
Among Latinos, the jobless rate has only registered below 5 percent for seven months total – in the history of this country. Six of those months have occurred with Donald Trump in the White House, including the April report released last week.

The jobs data was terrific news for Americans of all ethnicities. For the first time since the year 2000, the overall unemployment rate dipped below 4 percent. Just as significant, almost 1 million Americans who had previously given up on finding a job have rejoined the workforce since Trump was elected.
It appears that the thing that really frightens Democrats isn't Trump himself (although they'll tell you he's a monster) but rather, the successes he has achieved in improving the economy and helping people of color as a consequence. That tiggers hysteria among the Dems because they worry, I think, that people of color—African Americans and Latinos to name two, just might begin asking inconvenient questions.

Cortes continues:
This movement toward self-sufficiency is a notable achievement for all Americans, but particular focus should be placed on the gains for communities of color. Why? Because identity politics and Democrats’ Big Government policies have failed minorities. Only now, at long last, are those communities beginning to realize their potential, which has clearly been unleashed with help from the pro-growth Trump administration economic policies of deregulation, tax cuts, and border enforcement.
That's why the trained hamsters in the media offer us a daily ritual narrative of "white supremacy," all tied to Donald Trump's presidency. They hope that their cynical outrage drowns out the increasingly good economic news for people of color. That's also why they reacted viciously when Kanye West began asking the questions they hope that other people of color won't ask.

If people of color start to aggressively question why their personal economic fortunes have improved significantly under a "racist, white supremacist" GOP administration, while they didn't improve at all under the previous Democrat administration, the answers may not be the ones that Democrats what them to hear.
