How intolerant is the left?
How open-minded are Democrats?
What about their allies in the media?
Do they even try to understand why black Americans might hold opposing views, or do they just call them names and mock them for having the audacity to think for themselves? Who are the real racists?
On Friday, President Trump invited 400 conservative black Americans to his Black Leadership Summit at the White House. They came from different backgrounds and different socioeconomic backgrounds; they came from all over the United States. Former gangsters, former Democrats, college students, a comedian, successful business owners, motivational speakers, social media personalities, and conservative activists.
David Harris Jr., a black conservative who has his own talk show and website, had this to say about the Black Leadership Summit:
“While the mainstream media and most Democrat politicians are pushing a narrative that says Donald Trump is a racist, all of us would beg to differ. We all believe in limited government, school choice, securing our border, and putting Americans first. These are not new concepts, for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood for the same principles. He believed that illegal immigrants would take away jobs that would have gone to minorities. He believed in the sanctity of life and its value. These are principles fundamental to the prosperity of the black community. As Frederick Douglas once said, ‘If there is no struggle, there is no progress.’”
Former Democrat turned outspoken, conservative, powerhouse, Candace Owens, spoke eloquently and honestly at the Black Leadership Summit. She hit a nerve, however, when she called CNN a “racist network.” Instead of considering why Owens called the failing network, “racist,” CNN’s Jake Tapper mocked her appearance, saying, “Your tax dollars at work!”

Former gangster, King Face, who has a huge following on social media, netted an invitation to White House Summit. King Face spends all of his time spreading the truth about what President Trump has done for the black community in “the hood” where he lives, calling himself a “patriot.” King Face claims that he was literally the only person in his neighborhood who was voting for Trump and that he’s worked so hard, he’s convinced at least 70% of them to vote for Trump in 2020. King Face says he’s spending all of his time campaigning (he doesn’t receive any funding from the Trump campaign) in “the hood” for Trump.
Watch King Face explain how he’s even bringing rival gang members together to support Trump.

Trump-supporting comedian Terrence K. Williams was invited to attend the summit last year but was involved in a horrible car accident with his Lyft driver that resulted in broken back for Williams. In the video below, Williams has a hard time containing his excitement after he got his invitation from the White House for another Black Leadership Summit.
I’M GOING TO THE WHITE HOUSE !!!
The Greatest President of our time has invited me to the WH for the Black Leadership Summit

The young, beautiful, conservative activist, Charrise Lane, who is also the niece of King Face, was also invited. She performed her first rap ever on Twitter for her massive following; the rap was about why she supports Trump.

Author, and conservative personality, Isaiah Washington tweeted an image of a proud group of black Trump supporters at the White House Leadership Summit; he was immediately attacked. It’s not that he was attacked by liberals for daring to support a president they don’t approve of, he was attacked by current and former members of the media. He was also attacked by Morgan Jenkins, a New York Times best-selling author and senior editor of the Medium publication.
For some reason, the fired CNN reporter Soledad O’Brien found it hilarious that black American men would have the audacity to visit the White House, tweeting, “Lol.”
Angry talk show host, Roland Martin, also found it humorous that a group of black American men from all backgrounds would attend a Black Leadership Summit at the White House.
Most shocking of all was the response from Morgan Jerkins, a New York Times best-selling author and the SENIOR-EDITOR of Medium, to Isaiah Washington’s tweet. Jerkins didn’t say a word; she just responded with six raccoons or “coon” emojis, suggesting the men in the photo were a bunch of “coons.”
The very brave Jerkins has since locked down her Twitter account.
It’s interesting to note, a quote by Jerkins from her best-selling book.
“There is no one way to be black. Blackness is not a monolith and you are not someone who is lost in the abyss of uniformity. Blackness is a kaleidoscope where, if you look closely, you will see many colorful patterns within the many reflections in the mirror. There is no one way to be black.” ―
It’s sad that Democrats can’t accept that black men and women should have the same freedoms as White or Latino or Asian Americans to choose the presidential candidate they think best represents them. Why do Democrats and their allies in the media think it’s okay to mock black Americans for choosing their own political candidates?
Don’t these responses by Democrat members of the media seem racist?
