CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio- The Cleveland Chapter NAACP will host a post-presidential election blues town-hall forum from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm on Tuesday, Nov 29, 2016 at the Saint James A,M.E. Church, 8401 Cedar Avenue in Cleveland. For more information call the local NAACP headquarters at (216) 231-6260 or visit its website at www.clevelandnaacp.org .

 

Cleveland NAACP President Michael Nelson Sr, a local criminal defense attorney who ran unopposed last month for a second two-year term, told Cleveland Urban News.Com in an interview that many Blacks that he has spoken with since the election are devastated behind the stunning upset Donald Trump pulled off earlier this month to win the U.S presidency over Hillary Clinton. (Editor note: Though Clinton won the popular vote Trump won the Electoral College, and thus the presidency).

The NAACP is the oldest and most renowned Civil Rights organization for Black people in the United States.

Nelson said that Trump's defeat of Clinton, the Democratic nominee and a former secretary of state who enjoyed widespread support from Blacks, represents "the worst despair for Blacks since the assassination of slain Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."

 

"The nation is in a state of despair," said Nelson, a Cleveland Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2005, the powerful non-partisan seat that went that year to now three-term Black mayor Frank Jackson, a Democrat up for re-election next year. "No urban agenda was part of the Trump rhetoric other than him saying he has an urban agenda."

 

Also at risk, said Nelson, are "all of the Civil Rights gains that Blacks have fought for."

 

Trump, he said, is out of touch with the Black community.

 

During the campaign Clinton and Trump's policies were nearly opposite on every issue, including heightened policy brutality nationwide, education, taxes, immigration, clean energy, women's rights, foreign policy, healthcare and the next U.S. Supreme Court justice.

 

Democratic President Barack Obama, the country's first Black president, had branded Trump, a Republican and billionaire real estate mogul,  unfit to be president and said during a post-election press conference that he has reservations about a Trump presidency.

Protests have been ongoing since Trump's election night Nov 8, including in Cleveland and other major American cities such as Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York City.

 

 

Protesters are angry over the campaign rhetoric of the now president-elect, and his transition team and cabinet choices to date, calling some of them, including Stephen K. Bannon, his election for chief strategist and senior counsel, and U.S. Sen Jeff Sessions, his attorney general nominee,  racist at best, and a step backwards for Democracy and equal opportunity.
