After the leader of New Black Panthers Party of Houston came out in support of Trump, this civil rights leader, Clarence Henderson, did the same. The irony is rich. Especially since Trump is supposed to be a racist.
Saturday, on “CNN Newsroom,” one of the men who helped stage the 1960 sit-in at a North Carolina Woolworth’s lunch counter to protest segregation endorsed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump is a businessman, and America is a business. In order to run America, in order to be a part of running America, you have to understand the economics of America and that we are free society…He knows how to create jobs. One of the biggest problems in America right now, especially in black communities, are the lack of jobs. He has proven before that he knows how to create jobs. We are a country, the land of opportunity, not the land of entitlement.”
