Dwyane Wade On Donald Trump's Tweet


Last week Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump tried to exploit the tragic death of NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin, Nykea Aldridge, who was gunned down on the streets of Chicago while pushing her child in a baby carriage [click here if you missed that].

Dwyane Wade addresses Trump's actions...

D Wade tells ABC News
"I was conflicted [about Trump's Tweet]. On one end your cousin's death is used as a ploy for political gain."
"On the other end, it's a national story. It goes back to that for me. I want eyes on this city. I want us to be able to do more together. The only way we can do more together is if more people know what's going on."
"I was grateful that it started a conversation but on the other hand it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Chicago is in it's current state because of decades of Democratic Liberal rule. Every city in America that has extremely high crime rates all have two things in common. Democratic Leadership and a shit ton of gun laws to keep citizens in said cities defenseless to the CRIMINALS/THUGS who all seem to be armed to the teeth. If you think this is all make believe, do your own research.

NYC, Detroit, LA, Chicago, Baltimore, Camden, St. Louis, Philly etc...

Get rid of the Democrat Leftist in Leadership and things just might turn around, continue to buy into their collective bullshit and buy more coffins. The choice is yours...

11:51 Agree 100%. Also, I believe Trump was right by saying "What do you have to lose". Hell, blacks loosing their lives by the hands of other blacks in senseless murders and the Dems, Obama, Sharpton none of them care and have written these black folks off.

Chicago was Obama's stomping ground and he hasn't done jack!. Sharpton said he would stay in Chicago to resolve it and wouldn't leave until he did, you see he's not there! Give Trump a Chance. I'm will by voting Trump Nov 8! Many other blacks and hispanics will vote Trump too. Don't believe the News/Media BS.

Prior to running for President (and not that he's doing anything for Blacks now. He won't even meet with the NAACP nor will he speak to a group of Blacks; he talks about us to a crowd of white folks), what did Trump EVER do for Blacks? Other than Omarosa, what Black person has he helped? Look up what he said about the five Black men who were WRONGFULLY convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. Look at the history of he and his father stamping the letter "C" on apartment applications for "Colored" - meaning if you are "C" you can't rent in their buildings. The DOJ actually filed a civil rights case against Trump for violating the Fair Housing Act. Trump was the father of the Birther bullshit. He was the FIRST one demanding the President show his papers, like we were in old time South Africa/Apartheid. He associates himself, retweets and all, and aligns himself with White Nationalists and the Alt-Right, which is a new way of saying RACISTS of hardcore nature.

Sorry that Trump is the only Republican you have to choose from and Hillary the only Democrat. Neither one of them are great candidates but at least one has experience as Sec. of State, is SANE, isn't a race baiter and isn't amping up the white downtrodden to whup ass and possibly kill those of us trying to get to the polls. Remember, Donald pleaded with his followers to "watch the polls." That means white, tatted dudes in open carry states ready to shoot a black/brown if they feel as though YOU don't deserve to vote. So what do we have to lose? Our rights. Our safety. Our freedom of speech (he hates the press when they say mean things about him and wants less freedom of press which includes this blog). We gain a Us vs. Them America. Ask your grandmothers and aunties who are old enough to remember what that looked like. The new crop of racist whites who gather on the internet and who birthed Dylan Roof who shot church goers in Charleston, are always praying for a new Civil War; Trump is the answers to their prayers.

ITA @11:51 I don't necessarily believe that Trump is the answer but I do feel that Liberalism and the Progressive cult has lead to the cultural demise of the United States.

7:46-- Uhh, Cocoa, Trump just gave a speech in a black church in Detroit.

And as long as black people act like Democrats are entitled to our vote by default, we gonna keep losing, point blank period. They don't have to do shit for us because they know black people just vote Democrat anyway. Bill Clinton signed NAFTA, that basically gutted the black middle class and took away all the factory jobs that was black peoples' bread and butter, and we love him to death. His wife Hillary supports TPP, another trade deal guaranteed to finish the job.

And pleeeeaaaasssseee don't tell me about Hillary's experience while she's being investigated right now, for keeping a personal email server-- which the government told her not to do-- that was probably hacked by every hostile to the United States government around the world. They won't tell you in the news how bad it is but if you read online the FBI is pissed off, she compromised them in a major way, probably put plenty of agents lives at risk. Not to mention the American people. You think I want a person who can't even handle her email the way she was told to have her finger on the button.
