New Black Panther leader makes a pitch for Trump; Dems are ‘big pimps, pimping us like prostitutes’
Despite media outlets’ criticism of Donald Trump’s efforts to reach out to the African-American community, those endeavors are bearing fruit — and in unexpected places.
New Black Panther leader Quanell X appeared on Fox 26 Houston earlier this week to discuss the Republican presidential nominee’s appearance in Milwaukee following the fatal shooting of a young armed black man by a police officer.
“Let me say this to the brothers and sisters who listened and watched that speech. We may not like the vessel that said what he said, but I ask us to truly examine what he said,” he said on the station’s “Fox Faceoff” before giving the viewers a history lesson.
“Because it is a fact that for 54 years we have been voting for the Democratic Party like no other race in America. And they have not given us the same loyalty and love that we have given them. We, as black people, have to reexamine the relationship. We’re being pimped like prostitutes and they’re the big pimps pimping us politically, promising us everything and we get nothing in return. We gotta step back now as black people and we gotta look at all the parties and vote our best interests.”
