There’s a conservative movie called “Uncle Tom.” The film chronicles Black conservatives and what they go through as Trump supporters…I mean, these Americans are targeted and demonized from all ends. They have a unique perspective and journey that they go on.
And I think I can speak somewhat intelligently on this topic…
I am really blessed to work for one of the most amazing black conservatives, Wayne Dupree. I have been witness to the highs and lows that he deals with just because he’s a conservative.
However, after so much time working with Wayne, I don’t really think of him as a “Black Trump supporter.” I just think of him as a “Trump supporter.”
But that’s not to say that I don’t respect and recognize the different set of challenges and battles that he faces just because of how he thinks and what he believes. He has a special and unique perspective and thought-process to bring to the table, and I love it. I have learned a lot from him.
So, when I saw this clip – a deleted scene from the movie “Uncle Tom,” I really wanted to share it with you in that spirit of “different and unique perspectives.”
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
You can watch the video below:
At a time where identity politics are everywhere and Dems and the media are pushing so much division and hate and anger, it’s so nice to watch a clip like this.
Look, being “different” is not bad – we all have different cultures, upbringings, religion – trying to mesh everyone into one “uni-human” is not the answer. Different is good, just as long as you can find some common ground on the big issues – and I believe that’s what President Trump is working to do.
