    Dennis Rodman - former NBA basketball star for the Chicago bulls

    Mike Tyson - former heavyweight boxing champ

    Azalea Banks - songwriter and singer

    Terrel Owens - Philanthropist, entrepreneur, fitness expert, model, motivational speaker, humanitarian

    Jimmy McMillan - Founder of Rent is too Damn High party, American political activist and Vietnam War veteran

    Rev. James David Manning - founder of the Harlem, New York-based ATLAH Worldwide Missionary Church

    Latrell Sprewell - former "bad boy" NBA player

    Herschel Walker - retired professional football player


    Just curious what our fellow RJ social justice warriors, anti-patriarchal, misandrists thought of these well known black Americans who are endorsing the Republican candidate. Anyone have any comments to share? Since ya can't hurl the usual "white racist", "trailer park trash" insults at them I'm curious as to how you'll try and discredit these fine people of color.

    The black population is not monolithic. Everyone has the right to choose whom to support politically. To be sure, however, whom we support is a reflection of our true self and our core values.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/azealia-banks-donald-trump_us_56af97d5e4b057d7d7c79252Azealia Banks Endorses Donald Trump Because He’s ‘A Piece of S**t’

    Rapper Azealia Banks took to Twitter on Monday to announce who she’ll be voting for in the upcoming election, and her reasoning is quite surprising (and totally skewed).

    The “212” singer, who was recently arrested for biting a security guard’s breast, said that she’s voting for Donald Trump mainly because he “is the only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business.” Her reasoning only got wilder from there...

    Mike Tyson and Dennis Rodman are "fine people of color"?

    One went to prison for rape, and was banned from boxing for biting a chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear off.

    The other... well... yeesh...

    As for their support of Trump, an Abe Lincoln quote comes to mind:
    "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."

    It is awesome to see that not all African Americans are blind sycophants to the democratic party and the Wicked Witch of Wall Street.

    Well it is awesome to see there is stupid in all ethnic groups. No clearer examples need be proffered.

    Pastor James Manning: He whose banner is stone the gays to death and kill the homosexuals... It is no surprise to me that he would be in the Repugnican party and a supporter of Chump. Like attracts like and such vile abhorrent people would be expected to be part of that party. Nothing new there.

    I normally enjoy reading what you have to contribute here. But this post of yours - not so much.

    I will admit, that is not a very flattering photo of Dennis. But as someone who posts pics and videos of himself nearly or completely naked I find it a bit hypocritical to opine so harshly on how another person presents himself to the world. All I'm asking is, what makes a man's choice, who chooses to wear makeup and jewelry, any less valid than a guy who posts youtube videos of himself donning only a jockstrap while discussing the paramount concerns that plague us all: "How to be a Youtube Bad Boy."?

    I don't personally like Mike Tyson either. But I don't think we can discredit him for his past transgressions on whom he supports for president. There are rapists and violent people who are not Republican and in most states, voting rights are restored after incarceration terms are served.

    Sellouts?, No. Smart?, Yes. The democrat party has done nothing for the black population for generations, except sell them a bunch of bullshit talking points, promise them more free stuff and handouts, and keep them impoverished and guarantee them their vote.

    She is also queen of pandering to both the Hispanic and gay and lesbian votes as well. The Wicked Witch of Wall Street will do anything to ingratiate herself. She is the worst and most incompetent candidate to ever run for the office of President of the United States and that is the absolute truth, no bullshit here. Anyone who votes for Hillary should be convicted of treason against our great country.

    WTF? OMFG, Trump cabinet members to be all "reality TV people", its Neptune in Pisces overload! icon_eek.gif

    Let me repeat, I DONT OR HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS BULLSHIT SHOW! EVER!


    Ex-'Apprentice' Star Omarosa Named Trump's Director of African-American Outreach
    https://www.yahoo.com/movies/ex-apprentice-star-omarosa-named-trumps-director-african-230529344.html


    Omarosa Manigault, alum of Donald Trump's The Apprentice, has been named the director of African-American outreach for the presumptive GOP nominee's campaign, she announced in an interview with MSNBC on Monday afternoon.

    "It happened this week," she told MSNBC while speaking at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. "It's really an extension of the work that the [National Diversity Coalition for Trump] has already been doing and so I'm very happy to take up that cause for Donald Trump."

    The former reality star and memorable "villain" of the franchise previously served as vice-chairman for the National Diversity Coalition for Trump.

    The one thing I thought I should point out is that all these people are millionaires. And, for the most part, they're all self-made millionaires. I find that interesting.

    More corrupt and lying than Chump?! Tell that to the hundreds of people he has ripped off at his idiotic university; tell that to his 4 other wives that he cheated on; tell that to the people he has stumped on to create his fictious billionaire status; tell that to the charities he claimed to give to when you wake up and stop drinking his koolaid from his ass, you will be part of that group as well - but alas at that time you too will be on the ground frothing at the mouth.

    Except Chump claims to be a billionaire although the bloody liar that he is - he refuses to release his tax statements.

    When Obama releases his Harvard transcripts and Hillary releases her Goldman Sachs speech transcripts I would be more inclined to agree.
    But ya know? Some things might not happen.
