That's it.  It's over for Biden.  50 Cent's endorsement means NY's 29 electoral votes are now solidly red.  Ice Cube's endorsement means that all 55 of CA's electoral votes are Trump's.  Let's just hope that Slim Thug or Post Malone don't also break for Trump or Texas and it's EC votes are no longer a toss up.  Biden's path to the WH is now balancing on the razor's edge at best.

FTFA- 50 Cent immediately moves close to the top of the list of celebrities who have endorsed Donald Trump, which includes Kid Rock, Jon Voight, Roseanne Barr, Kirstie Alley, Scott Baio and several other...

You do not overcome that kind of star power and get elected.  Sorry, Joe.

Also, and I know we've already had at least one thread about this, FARK YOU, CNBC, for promoting such misleading BS.  Most Americans are soon-to-be millionaires and do not understand progressive tax rates.

Between Kanye West, Ice Cube, and now 50 Cent, it's funny watching my parents suddenly like "black music."

Easily 50 Cent's worst pitch ever.

It's amazing how many people don't understand progressive income tax rates.  Like morons who make 40k a year who think their net would be 16k a year under biden....or if you DO make 400k per year and you think your net will be 160k a year.

What has Biden done during his 47 years in government for Black people? 

I thought so. Here's what Trump did in his first three years from the Washington Post:

Employment
It is true that, under Trump, black employment reached a new high and black unemployment a low. These figures each carry immediate asterisks...

It's also hard to evaluate black employment relative to past history because data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics only goes back to 1972...

-----------------------------

Criminal justice reform
In December 2018, Trump signed the First Step Act into law. It passed Congress on a largely bipartisan basis.

The Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act (known as the First Step Act) was a bipartisan criminal justice bill passed by the 115th Congress and signed by President Trump in December 2018. The First Step Act, among other changes, reforms federal prisons and sentencing laws in order to reduce recidivism, decrease the federal inmate population, and maintain public safety. -  Wikipedia

-------------------------------------

Opportunity zones
Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) championed the inclusion of "opportunity zones" in the 2017 tax bill that Trump signed into law. Its provisions reward investment in impoverished areas by deferring taxes on the sale of stocks and other holdings if the assets from those sales are invested in certain high-need geographic areas.

The problem, as the New York Times reported last August, is that the benefits have largely gone to wealthy Americans who have often made investments with no obvious benefit to the surrounding communities.

(Amen to that - Boulder's city "staff" applied and received such an Opportunity Zone posing as a run-down inner city that needed federal cash. THAT madame, is White Privilege writ large, right here downtown.)

-----------------------------------

Historically black colleges and universities
Walter Kimbrough, president of Dillard University in New Orleans, offered his own analysis of Trump's claims about HBCU funding in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

"The President did sign the bill for [fiscal year 2020] which provided record HBCU funding," Kimbrough wrote. "It was the result of bipartisan work in the Congress; the president simply signed it as part of the overall budget for the nation."

No love for Cube?

Fitty is literally saying "Yeah, Trump is a bigot but... Mah tax cut!!!"

Fark Fitty is my point here.

according to calculations from Jared Walczak of the Tax Foundation. In New Jersey, the combined rates could be just more than 60%, while in New York state they could reach 58.2%. In New York City, home to most of the state's high earners, the combined city, state and federal income tax rate would be just over 62%.

Of course, few if any taxpayers pay the full statutory rates, which don't include deductions, credits, offsets, loopholes and lower tax rates on other sources of income. Even though the top U.S. statutory tax rate is currently 37%, the effective rate (what taxpayers actually pay with help from their accountants) for top earners is 26.8%, according to the Tax Foundation. The Biden campaign said what matters to taxpayers and the economy are the effective rates, not the statutory rates.


Thanks for giving us the hypothetical of a person who takes zero credits and deductions.  You provided real value for liars.

It's almost like they scraped the bottom of the barrel of washed-up 90s/early 00s rappers offering them $$$ to get involved in something they don't have a farking clue about to appeal to black people in the most egregiously out of touch and racist way possible.

Oh wait, that's exactly what they did.

Yeah about that!

"Presidential candidates court wealthy donors while Trump dominates small-dollar fundraising"

"OpenSecrets estimates that 64 percent of Trump's campaign cash comes from small donors when accounting for transfers from Trump's small-dollar joint fundraising committee, totaling $174 million through April. Biden has raised $69 million from those giving $200 or less. Small donors make up about 39 percent of his total fundraising"
