Black men are endorsing Donald Trump in large numbers. Lil Wayne is just the latest of a long line of Black male celebrities who are using their platform to promote the president, a man who is considered to be a racist by most of the Black community.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus,” Li Wayne tweeted. “Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are responsible for sending large number of Black men to prison to serve long sentences for minor crimes. Donald Trump’s criminal reform have freed many of these same Black men.
Earlier in October, the Trump administration announced its Black Economic Empowerment “Platinum Plan,” inspired in part by Ice Cube’s Contract With Black America. The “Platinum Plan” aims to “increase access to capital in black communities by almost $500 billion” by creating 500,000 black-owned businesses and 3 million new jobs for the black community, plus strengthening immigration and policing policies.
