*Have you ever met someone at a night club and started an intimate relationship with them based on limited, superficial information? Maybe it was the clothes they wore or the car they drove or the job they claimed to have. But when you found out the clothes were borrowed, the car was rented and they were between jobs, you looked past those red flags.
It wasn’t until after you moved in together that you realized this relationship was easy to get into, but it was going to be hard to get out of. S/He has a key to your front door, a key to your vehicle, the PIN to your account and those private photos you shared were posted on social media out of revenge. You mistook a one-night stand for a potential life partner. That’s the same relationship America has with President Donald Trump!
Some people thought he would make a great president, because he claimed to be a great businessman. Upon further review it was revealed Trump will offer bribes, treat company money as his personal piggy bank and throw people under the bus who dare to speak out against him. Despite his detrimental behavior millions of Americans still plan to vote for Trump in November, because they are just like him: They lie and cheat their way through life, caring only about themselves regardless of how it effects others.
In just four short years Trump has shown everyone who he is. We don’t have to guess. African-Americans have been waiting for Republicans and Democrats to do right by us for 450 years! It’s time to stop waiting and start our own political party. Watch/listen to my video column above to find out how you can make it happen.
