What Did You Have To Lose? Plenty If You Are Black









In the 2016 election Donald Trump made a simple appeal to Black voters: “What the hell do you have to lose”.

I decided to see how the Trump Presidency has worked out for the Black community, so I put in a call to Herman Cain, a Black supporter of Trump who previously ran for the Presidency.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t answer the phone.  Cain was dead.

The number one suspect for his death is, you guessed it, Donald Trump.

As the Bob Woodward audio tapes of Trump make clear, as far back as February, Trump knew that Covid was a medical Tsunami destined to wipe out Americans by the 100’s of thousands.  At the same time, he was telling the public it was a hoax with cute names like “kung flu”. [I wonder if it had originated in Israel would he have called it “Jewish Flu”?]

What he did not know, or care about was that the minority communities were going to bear the brunt of it with infection and death rates two-and-a-half times the White community. As of this writing in the death rate in the Black community has smashed through the 50,000 ceiling.

So on June 20, notwithstanding that he also had Stage 4 metastatic colon cancer, the 74-year-old Cain attended a Trump rally in Tulsa.  Without a mask, he sat cheek to jowl in a section reserved for Black attendees. They were sitting so close because Trump ordered that spacing labels be removed from chairs.

Within a week Cain developed a fever and joined the hundreds, including Secret Service agents, testing positive for Corvid.

On July 1, Cain required hospitalization. On July 30, Herman Cain was dead from Covid.

Herman Cain is now one of the 207,000-plus Americans who died because of Trump’s public lies that Covid was just another flu and that masks and spacing were not important.

Cain died because Trump had no plan to deal with Covid.

Cain died because of Trump’s lack of planning allowed an epidemic to turn into a pandemic

Imagine what the law would do if your doctor intentionally lied to you about your condition, its cause, and the treatment you needed. And those lies led to your death. At a minimum that would be negligent homicide.

Now imagine if those same lies resulted in 207,000 dead Americans and 50,000 deaths in the African American community and the reaction from the President was: “It is what it is.”

What would it mean?

For one thing America’s greatest mass murderer would have clearly answered his own question about what the Black community had to lose by voting for him. Their lives.

    Oh, Sam Fields, the same Sam Fields who asked if they could throw the reporter from Florida Trend out of the window during the 1995 Broward sales tax scam because the reporter was at the meeting when the supporters decided to go private with a PAC so no one would know who donated, etc. The same Sam Fields who touts the First A. Calling the POTUS a mass murderer when it was Cuomo who murdered the elderly by sending sick people back into nursing homes. Invoking Herman Cain with another lie. When Biden and Co. castigated POTUS for closing the country to China in February. Slither away, Fields.

    1. Mr. Fields is right.
    2. Trump leads old White men like the members of Hollywood’s Coin Club to have AN INDOOR COIN MARKET on this Sunday. ALL.EXCEPT ONE VENDOR IS OVER 65; they do n they dont wear masks every day; AND MOST ARE EITHER OVERWEIGHT and/or HAVE UNDERLYING HEALTH PROBLEMS.
    I advocate masks n social.distancing AND THEY QUOTE NOT CDC GUIDELINES BUT DONALD TRUMP LIES.
    You watch, a few weeks after this Sunday a few elderly coin collectors in Broward will come down woth Coronovirus.

  3. For independent thinking says:

    Why is it that so many white Democrats think they have to think for black people?

  4. City activist Robert Walsh says:

    Wow there is a lot here.First the comment if the virus was from Israel would it be called the ” Jew Flu”. That comment was beyound hateful and it’s obvious your disdain for Isaerl.Came across very antisemetic.In fact and this what is concerning is if a city employee stated on social media your comments , esp a police officer, would be fired.Your other comment that basically Trump intentionally lied about Covid so Black people would be greater exposed, beyound absurd.W/ no examination of patients health before Covid- Hypertension,smoking,poor diet,diabetes,had nothing to do w/ their deaths- sure.Im surprised since I usually like ke when Buddy gives u a guest appearance.Not this time.

  5. Phony Fields & Tangerine Skies says:

    Sam Fields you are such a phony.

    Mitch Ceasar On John Lewis: World Lost A Giant, But I Lost A Friend

    Sam & Mitch have made a career and profiteered being the phony savior’s of black people.

    Sam Fields is a Plantation lawyer, how appropriate.

  6. Boris says:

    Sam Fields’ biography said he is a Democratic activist so It is not strange to be a mouthpiece for Biden.

  7. right wing says:

    after all these years its still sam the shill.first class scam artist

  8. Ha Ha Ha says:

    Fields wrote: “On July 1, Cain required hospitalization. On July 30, Herman Cain was dead from Covid.”

    On October 1, Donald Trump required hospitalization after testing positive for COVID-19.

    Mr. Trump was obviously lying when he claimed that this pandemic was a “Democratic hoax” and then lying again when he claimed that this pandemic was “under control”.

    Will the voters hold Mr. Trump accountable for his incompetent management of the COVID-19 pandemic, or will Mother Nature take her own revenge first?

    Stay tuned…

    Old White man Fields telling Blacks how to vote. How like the Democrats.

  10. GOPapa says:

    #hey hey:
    Don’t shoot the messenger. Believe the message. I am a Republican and I know that Sam Fields speaks the truththat needs to be said even if the messenger is an old white man.

  11. Davie Blvd Lawyer says:

    Just out of curiosity, are Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc. responsible for all the people that died from the flu while they were in office?

    #9, as a person of color I can tell you we do not need anyone telling us how to vote. And, we are not voting for the outright racist “it is what it is” son of a Klansman POS Trump. He has incited the worst race relations in this country since 1968. He’s all about himself and has done NOTHING for “the Blacks”. Trump was riding Obama’s employment #s. Look at where we are now: 20 million unemployed, 210K dead Americans, businesses closing down, he’s a virus a super-spreader with the intelligence of a 5th grader and the vocabulary of a 3rd grader. Trump will go down as the worst president in American history with his legend being the man who caused the death of more Americans than Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and Korea combined.

  14. Wuhan China Jr. says:

    Countless LF Chidkiewicz Chudzikiewicz is now an immunologist butt really he is a proctologist that’s full of it. Go change the kitty litter boxes.

    On Clinton you might want to check with his conquests.

    GUTLESS NAMELESS BLOGGERS with potty mouths are just POTTY.And rescuing cats is certainly better use of time than writing IGORNANT unsigned ATTACKS ON YOUR BETTERS

  16. Stormwatch says:

    Thanks, Sam, for another excellent, thought provoking piece. 25% of COVID-19 American deaths is an alarming number. Our nation has never been so compromised on so many levels. Have you noticed how Trump calls Jews who are democrats “disloyal” and tries to use those old school Nazi antisemite tactics on American Jews and guilt trip them in to “dual loyalty” to Israel? Just so he and Bibi can do some real estate deals.

  17. Clarke Anthony says:

    Hey, “Civic Activist” – San did not say “Jew flu!” And may IK assume that you were referring to Israel when you typed “Isaerl”
    Sam, I think it’s worst than tRump not having a plan to deal with this pandemic. I think he is a sadist who takes joy in being responsible for mass death. He needs to go straight from the Oval Office to prison!
