National African-American unemployment is 6.8% — a number that would be decried if it reflected white unemployment. If during the State of the Union speech, President Trump had challenged our country to further lower black unemployment, Democrats would have been on their feet.

Instead, President Trump accuses Democrats of being traitors. Since I would not have stood to applaud, by extension he also accuses me of a crime punishable by death. Mr. Trump's accusatory language reveals the heart of a tyrant, unfit by character and temperament to hold his high office.
