Professor and CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill pulled the Uncle Tom card during a panel discussion on Don Lemon’s show. He tempered it somewhat but the message was clear when he said Trump is “dragging” “mediocre negroes” in front of the cameras for “photo-ops”.
Steve Harvey was on the chopping block.
“I love Steve Harvey and I have respect for Steve Harvey and I think his intentions were accurate, appropriate rather, but my disagreement is the way in which he’s being used by folk like Donald Trump. Yet, his intention is just to have a seat at the table. But when you’re at the table, you should have experts at the table. You should have people who will challenge the president at the table.”
He wants communists like himself at the table.
“I don’t care if Steve is there, but if I’m Steve Harvey, I’m bringing Michelle Alexander, I’m bringing Cornell West, I’m bringing Ahmadi Perry, I’m bringing , I’m bringing Eddie Glaude, I’m bringing Michael Eric Dyson. I’m bringing some folk with me who can challenge the president and inform the conversation…”
Trump is trying to help these poor communities. What is so hard to understand? You’d have to be demented to think trying to help is exploitation.
Hill only wants people who have the credentials he deems appropriate, but Trump doesn’t follow the rules. It’s driving the left crazy.
“They keep bringing up comedians and athletes to represent black interests is demeaning, it’s disrespectful, and it’s condescending. Bring some people up there with expertise Donald Trump, don’t just bring up people to entertain…”
One commentator tried to explain what Trump was doing and that’s when Hill said, “Yeah, it’s a bunch of mediocre negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump’s exploitive campaign against black people. And you are the prime example of that.”
Maybe he should include himself. While he’s at it Dyson, West and the other loons he mentioned might fit in that category.
