    "Pastor Mark Burns, an African-American supporter of Donald Trump who has been defending the candidate's recent outreach to minority voters in the media, tweeted a cartoon Monday of Hillary Clinton in blackface, mocking her outreach to black voters."

    The pastor apologized for the tweet but not the message he was trying to convey.

    Dang, that's arguably worse than the purported "bring them to heel" as people say Clinton said... (I still think she said "heal", but all that is a different discussion...)

    But "use you again"? Is that deliberate on the pastor's part? Oh well, at least he isn't white I suppose, imagine the **** storm that would brew if some white guy said the identical verbiage.

    What, we've become such sensitive snowflakes that we're now triggered by an editorial cartoon???

    She said "heel" for sure. I believe that was the same speech were she referenced the "black super predators".

    rumors had it Hillary paid to fill the DNC convention & killed anyone who was a threat to her, rumors are handy when they suit a particular agenda :D

    So is this a hilarious genuine Branco or a tasteless fake Branco? I can't tell the difference anymore. Disciples of Branco, please clarify.

    It's amazing that people don't see Hillary's "Look, I'm just like you people, so vote for me..." as racist, yet see it as racist when someone points it out to them.

    She panders to anyone with money or votes. Look at where her money comes from. She doesn't give a dam about anyone but herself. She's made herself rich, very, very rich selling access to her power.

    Black people by definition cannot be racist. Nothing to see here folks.

    Same logic as diversity groups that only include some people.

    Remember, Germany had a "Stronger Together" mentality. Stronger together doesn't mean inclusive of all views, it means agree with us and we'll be stronger.

    That Hillary doesn't have the best interests of the black community at heart? That she will pander to retain their support all the while supporting policies that hurt poor and middle-class blacks (and whites and any other race) while achieving her vision of what America should be?

    It seems to me that the pantomime of blackface is wholly appropriate.

    And I'm a minority, so I'm allowed to say that.

    I don't know how anyone could look at either of these candidates and think "They're just like me." Hillary hasn't driven in 20 plus years and Trump has his own helicopter and plane.

    At some point, it's just change the dam channel, at least it'll be a different channel.
