Civil rights icon is questioning the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency. Is this helpful? No. Like it or not Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president next week. He won the most electors and he will be occupying the oval office. When someone of Lewis’ stature makes a statement like this it adds fuel to the fire. It was wrong when it was done to President Obama and it is wrong now.

Terrance Crutcher was a man trying to get home and he didn’t. We heard police officers who were in a helicopter talk about how he looked like a “bad dude”. Why did they say that? He was a bad dude because he was big and black. His physicality is reason enough to classify him as bad. Crutcher is dead and now we are witnessing the demonizing of the victim. Shoot first and create the narrative to justify the killing. We have seen this play out before. Trayvon Martin , Eric Turner, Freddie Gray and now Terrance Crutcher. Sure they were killed but they were “bad dudes” and we have the post-mortem narratives to prove it.
Flint pastor Faith Green Timmons stops Donald Trump from electioneering in her church. Trump politely stops. Good for her.

Joe Scarborough pens Amnesty Don. Finally a nickname that will stick.
Millionaire quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he will not stand up for the National Anthem until black people are no longer oppressed. One might say he is exercising his rights but do his rights supercede the rights of his employer? The football field is his workplace and the employer controls the space. Kaepernick has a right to his opinion but not on the football field. NBC commentator Rodney Harrison went as far as to question Kaepernick’s blackness. Harrison has since apologized. Donald Trump has said Kaepernick should go to a country that aligns with his viewpoint. The quarterback need not leave the country but he should take his protest off the football field.
