‘Shocking’ how many young Black men support Trump: Activist DeRay Mckesson

Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer, HuffPost Washington Bureau Chief Amanda Terkel, Yahoo News Editor-in-Chief Dan Klaidman, and Civil Rights Activist DeRay Mckesson talk about the urgent need for police reform in the U.S.

Video Transcript

DERAY MCKESSON: I think that there are a lot of people who know exactly what's at stake, that we have barely survived these last four years of what's going on under Trump and that we want to make sure that these next four years are ones that we don't just survive, but that we thrive in.

Now, it is disconcerting. There are about 18% of Black men under the age of 50 that do support Trump, which has been shocking. I talked to a pollster about it yesterday. And what he said that I thought was really interesting, he was like, for this subgroup of people, Trump's racism alone is not actually a disqualifier because they would say the whole system is racist, but it's the impact of his racism that's actually a disqualifier. So it's the impact.

It's like, it's like telling people about the kids in cages and seeking the death penalty for drug dealers, all those things actually become a disqualifier for Trump. So telling that story, especially as we get down-- and, you know, I think that what Trump has done effectively to the left is he actually isn't even attacking Biden all that much in his ads. He's actually attacking the party. He's saying the party is corrupt, the party doesn't care about you. Why are people believing him? I don't know. But it unfortunately is effective. Fact.
