    Donald Trump's 'My African American' Supporter: I Wasn't Offended

    ......REDDING, Calif. — A Republican singled out at a rally by
    Donald Trump as "my African American" said the episode was "odd," but insisted he was not offended.

    Gregory Cheadle said he was the man in the crowd pointed out by Trump, who as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee boasted of his support among African-American voters.

    Trump's remarks were made Friday at a rally in Northern California where he told an anecdote about another black male supporter who got into a fight at one of his previous events.

    .....Cheadle described himself as a Republican, but said he would not necessarily vote for Trump even after attending his rallies.

    Gregory Cheadle may not be offended, but this statement of Trump certainly ran its course in ugly racism :facepalm:



    CNN Panel Devolves Into Chaos Over Donald Trump's 'My African American' Comment






    When we look at the circus that has been the 2016 presidential race there are a number of absolutely bonkers moments, many of which can be attributed to presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. The Trump campaign has been built around concepts such as building a wall between Mexico and the United States, exporting Muslims from the country and getting upset when people talk about the size of his hands. The latest bizarre Trump moment happened this week when he pointed to the crowd and said, “Look at my African American over here.” That particular African American didn’t seem too bothered with it, but it is still a hot topic ...

    What Trump said comes as no surprise to me. However, not being offended by his comment as a Black person, I find disturbing. Shows me what I've known all along which is not all Black folk think alike or will see things the same way. So when we talk about being "united" as a people, be clear about what that really means 'cause it won't include everyone that looks like you.

    I agree, this country is coming apart, which is not necessarily a negative thing if you're seeing things through the eyes of an oppressed and abused group of people who are tired of the abuse and want real change for the better.

    Did you think a brighter future for Black people would happen without major struggle? Did you think that because President Obama was elected to the highest political seat in a nation that has the largest and most powerful military, meant that the struggle was over for Black folk? With racial hate crimes on the rise, it's game on, so tighten your seat belts, there's major turbulence ahead.

    Is that hooded woman even white? compare to the white woman at the right of the picture. I also took a look at the tattooed man and see white skin along the shirt and shoulder line. I'm thinking she is a provocateur hiding her face. And that is why everyone is looking at her taking pictures or laughing, thinking she is a nut case.
