    According to a 1927 New York Times article, it seems that the father of billionaire Republican presidential candidate and professional bile-spewer Donald Trump may have had ties to the Ku Klux Klan.

    The Times piece, subtitled “Klan Assails Policemen” and recently unearthed by
    Boing Boing, identifies a man named Fred Trump as among those arrested for participating in a brawl between the cops and the Klan. As Talking Points Memo notes, the Queens borough address listed for the arrested man, “172-24 Devonshire Road, Jamaica,” matches the known lifelong residence of the real estate mogul’s father.

    I am only surprised that he was able to keep this a secret so long.

    You are welcome, Destee.

    I hope this news gets to the sistas that are on YouTube "Stumping for Trump" and the other AAs who support him for some hard to understand reason.

    Correct. Any African American that knows this hates themselves and their race.
