    Donald Trump’s campaign is offering several products with the Trump brand on them, but they’re not offering a lot of diversity. According to activist Eric Ming who tweeted a side-by-side comparison, it appears the campaign has photoshopped white models to be brown to appear as though they are African Americans.

    So they decided to change it back right after the huge uproar or something?

    The source is from a twitter account, and nobody else reported on it...
    Good catch by a twitter activist, though he works in politics.


    Here are the images before they were updated, and then

    I doubt he had much to do with it, but stupid is as stupid does so I wouldn't put it out of mind that he at least had knowledge of it.

    Pandering is pandering, no matter if it was an actual person or not.
    BTW... what makes people think this is suppose to be a "black" woman?

    I chuckle... but that is a serious question.
    Looks like a spray on tan.

    Just saying

    That did cross my mind too, but the real images aren't that much different so I didn't want to say anything of the sort.



    Had to post this, as it was burning my brain

    And you are surprised? Donald Chump is insane like most racists. Lol But don't dare underestimate him! I heard on white talk radio this morning that the reason he is so popular, is because he says what most white "blue collar" workers think. He may very well get elected president. Said workers used to make 35 dollars an hour in the auto factories, and were living large! Now they have to work two or three low paying jobs just to make ends meet. They are looking for a scapegoat, someone to blame for their plight. Guess who that is? You guessed it. Back in the day when the price of cotton went down, the number of lynchings of Afrikans went up. "Arm yourself or harm yourself", Black Panther Party for Self Defense.
