Donald Trump’s tweet-“Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”
As Nykea Aldridge laid in the morgue Donald Trump tweeted about her death. He saw it as an opportunity to say to the world that he was right about black neighborhoods, but it was seen for what it was. An attempt to capitalize on a death for political reasons. He was immediately called on the tweet by the Twitter world, but what does this say about Trump? Share your thoughts.
Donald Trump has branded Hillary Clinton a bigot, and Clinton says Trump is a racist. They both have produced adds to support their points, but are these the two biggest issues facing us or all of us being punked? Have we merely become unwilling participants in a horrid reality show. Is our attention span so short that we can not tolerate a discussion of real issues? Are we getting what we deserve? If we demand more our candidates will it actually require more from us? Share your thoughts.
When did wrong become right, and when did a lie become a misrepresentation of the facts. Last week we watched Ryan Lochte try to explain his Rio lies. Billy Bush and Al Roker had a heated exchange in which Roker declared Lochte a liar, but Bill Bush tried to soft pedal the offense. It seems like the real world sided with Roker but the NBC brass seemed to take umbrage to Roker’s reaction. Roker was right. We can’t tell our children not to lie but then try to justify the lies of the rich and famous. Lochte is an Olympian medal winner and he is also a liar and that is the truth even if as the NBC brass attempts to search for euphemisms.
Interesting article. Read and share your thoughts.
You go Al Roker. You called a lie a lie not an embellishment. You didn’t “calm down” like Billy Bush suggested. You kept it real and kept it truthful.
Nobody respects the black vote. The Democrats take us for granted and the Republicans ignore us. Well, The Donald polling 1-2% in the black community has articulated a new strategy, and that is the “what the hell do you have to lose: strategy. Not really offering anything new. Not even coming into the community to articulate it. Just standing in front of mostly white crowds he just screams his new words. Is this truly the way he should be talking to black folks? 2016 is a different kind of election. Hillary Clinton is no Barack Obama and black people are not going to come out in those Obama numbers for her. So my advice is they both need to learn not all blacks live in poverty. We are like all Americans…different, and they need to address us that way.
32 year old man vandalizes bathroom and then lies about it to the world. Some call it young men having a good time but others including me call it thug behavior what do you call it? Share your thoughts.
The reaction to Ryan Lochte’s illegal activities can be described in one word-muted. He and his band of swimming brothers went out for a night on the town in Rio. They partied and then they destroyed property. They were detained by the police and then Lochte lied about the details. He came home to the US and his party buddies are left to answer questions. So where is the outrage? Why aren’t we hearing the talking heads vilifying him or demanding an apology? No one has called him a thug. So tell me why aren’t these gold medal winning swimmers being crucified by the press? You don’t have to tell me I know the answer.
