According to USA Today, minorities were making substantial progress in the decade until Trump

In an astonishing article, Nicquel Terry Ellis puts ideology above reality.  The article essentially says minorities were seeing their lives improve until Trump.

It was a decade of progress. 

Former President Barack Obama, the nation's first black president, was elected for a second term.

Protesters and professional athletes took a stand against police killings of black men.

Social media became the platform for calls for racial justice, sparking the launch of the Black Lives Matter social justice movement. 

The 2010s were, by all means, monumental for black activism, giving many Americans hope that their voices might be heard. 

It was a decade, however, that also saw the election of President Donald Trump — who pledged to support tougher law enforcement and limit immigration — as well as renewed activity from the white nationalist movement, resulting in mass shootings and other incidents of domestic terrorism against people of color[.]

They must have not had room to say that unemployment for blacks and other minorities have hit record lows during Trump's three years, and wages at the lower end of the scale are rising substantially. 

USA Today clearly blames cops for a lot of things but forgets to mention that they and other media outlets peddled the lie about "hands up, don't shoot" that ginned up racial hate against cops. 

They forget to mention that murder rates have gone down under Trump, and they continue to perpetuate the narrative that Trump supports white nationalists.  Why weren't there protests about the statues during Obama's eight years?

The bias in the media continues to increase exponentially.  It is they who push continuous lies to gin up racial hate and division, not Trump, who is trying to increase the economic opportunities for all.  Big government, which the media support, is not the solution for minorities.

Thomas Lifson adds:

Calling Black Lives Matter "progress" for minorities is deranged.  By attacking police and getting them to pull back from proactive policing, criminals have been unleashed to wreak havoc on minority-dominated neighborhoods, victimizing their residents.  Look at the murder rate in Baltimore, for example.
