Hillary's False Narrative On The Suppresion of Black Votes

For weeks now, Hillary Clinton has gotten in front of both black and racially mixed audiences, and made the claim that the black vote is being suppressed by the Republicans.  If that was true, why has black voting activity risen every year since 1996:

In fact, based on their percentage of the population, black citizens have the highest voting participation of any other ethnic group in the country at 66.2%.  If Republicans are truly trying to suppress the black vote, they are doing a lousy job of it.

I only wish that blacks would wake up to the fact she is desperately pandering to them  with outright lies.  Claims like this are probably behind the fact that she polls so low on trustworthiness and honesty.
