    So much for Hillary "Give Black Drug-Dealers 30-to-Life" Clinton's base of African-American support. Many of them are reconsidering their support, given that Bill Clinton visited more misery upon the Black community than any president in history.

    I wonder what's happening today at Clinton HQ? Probably a shrieking Hillary flying around on her broom throwing lamps at her poor campaign staffers while a bemused and befuddled Bubba, mouth agape, eyes the interns.

    Everyone the OP named are all Commies at heart. And American blacks continue to do horribly under decades of Democratic leadership.

    Interesting, Belafonte's endorsement will likely carry much more weight than any of the three others combined. Personally, I don't think it will make much of a difference if Bernie or Hillary get into the White House. Neither will be able to accomplish much with the current Congress. But priority number one should be making sure that one of them does become President.

    Right. Sanders will not be a magic man. Even though he won't be a Black man in their Whitehouse, Republicans will continue to block anything and everything that diverts us from the status quo. The point of getting Sanders into office is to build from there. To get any self-described socialist into an executive position will be a huge step forward for the country.

    This might be a point at which a functional Left can exist. As it is now, center-Right (Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, HRC) is what passes for far-Left in this country. It is embarrassing.

    If the Republicans want a shot at leading from the White House again, they need to elect a President. The GOP should focus on whether they can derail Trump's campaign by standing up a viable alternative candidate, not on whether some "Commies at heart" have endorsed Clinton's opponent. And by the way, the name calling will not impress people who admire anyone on the OP's list, much less the people on that list, who have all been called worse.

    The White House can always step up and lead since it does have the bully pulpit. The choice to follow or not is up to our elected representatives. So it's up to us to elect a Congress that is not half made up of people whose Goal One is to obstruct any proposal from the White House or his party.

    That doesn't mean we have to elect a one-party Congress. It means electing more congressmen on both sides of the aisle who are willing to explore for common ground. That's in the interests of everyone. It's hard for people to see that if they're into zero sum games and "my way or highway" madness.

    If Bernie can add a few more, like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Cory Booker, Julian Castro and LeBron James, Hillary might be in real trouble. :)

    (I could see Trump picking up endorsements from Martin Shkreli and Bernie Madoff.)

    The Cold War never ended, Fielding. When the Soviets called it a day, they didn't just go quietly into the night. They came over here, turned black, and started advocating for cheap/free education.

    Yeah, you other people might be laughing, but you know what happens after subsidized healthcare, right? BREAD LINES!

    Cory Booker is already in the bag for Hillary. Neil DeGrasse is an establishment shill and he certainly craves the approval of the Hollywood elite, so he's probably a Hillarybot. Castro is a Democrat machine hack. LeBron, I could see going for Bernie.

    (I could see Hillary picking up endorsements from Northrup-Grumman, Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, General Dynamics, Blackwater, Executive Outcomes, and various international arms dealers. Not to mention Goldman-Sachs. :D)

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a joke. You have to keep in mind that 80% of blacks believe in God and Neil DeGrasse Tyson is an outspoken atheist. The only people who will truly influence the black vote are black leaders within the Church. Also, John Lewis just announced today that he didn't see Bernie involved in any civil rights movements during the 60s.

    But you raise a good point about Trump, I doubt many people in the spotlight are going to be willing to risk their careers and publicly endorse Trump.

    Wait. I'm confused by this thread. Are you telling me that black people are individuals who make their own decisions?

    I do think that Hussein has matched Bubba when it comes to oppressing his own race. Such an egregious buffoon.

    Hillary might break out her Negro dialect in order to influence American blacks and steal Bernie's thunder.

    Hilary got one of the best black supporters ......... U.S. Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.)

    [​IMG]

    Incase you don't know who he is. He is like the black Bernie Sanders and extremely vocal. Very respected in the black community as a civil rights leader.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 12, 2016 ---
    As a black man I don't care about that, just like conservatives expect blacks not to care about Micheal Richards, Paula Dean, and etc. But Ohhhhh Noooooo, ya'll want us to slaughter Hilary. :eek:
