National protest for #colinkaepernick taking place today. I truly want him to play but PLEASE do not stop the fight just because he's signed. This issue is FAR more important than football. The NFL sent a message loud and clear that they will not tolerate someone speaking out against the machine. Kaepernick started a revolution and that terrifies people. Police brutality AGAINST ANY RACE should NOT be blindly accepted! Stop using the excuse that cops are just "doing their job". A cop's job is to apprehend and make an arrest. THAT'S IT! They are not the judge or the executioner. Stop believing the BS that they are using self-defense. If an unarmed black teen/man is a threat to your life then maybe you need a different job since you're too much of a coward to have a gun. WE HAVE THE POWER. Use it instead of being so passive!
At a number of political rallies over the past year, a character calling himself “#MichaeltheBlackMan ” has appeared in the crowd directly behind #DonaldTrump , impossible to miss and prompting widespread fascination.
He holds signs that scream “#BLACKSFORTRUMP ” and wears a T-shirt proclaiming with equal conviction that “#TRUMP & #Republicans Are Not #Racist .” Almost always, he plugs his wild website, Gods2.com, across his chest.
And so it was Tuesday night before a crowd of Trump supporters in #Phoenix who had come to watch another show. There was the president, whipping up the wildly cheering crowd, and then there was Michael the Black Man, chanting just beyond Trump’s right shoulder in that trademark T-shirt.
The presence of #Michael — variously known as #MichaelSymonette , #MauriceWoodside and #MikaelIsrael — has inspired not only trending #Twitter hashtags but a great deal of curiosity and #Google searches. Internet sleuths find the man’s bizarre URL, an easily accessible gateway to his strange and checkered past.
The radical fringe activist from #Miami once belonged to a violent black supremacist religious cult, and he runs a handful of amateur, unintelligible conspiracy websites. He has called #BarackObama “#TheBeast ” and #HillaryClinton a #KuKluxKlan member. #OprahWinfrey , he says, is the #devil .
Most curiously, in the 1990s, he was charged, then acquitted, with conspiracy to commit two murders.
But Michael the Black Man loves #PresidentTrump .
It’s unclear whether the #WhiteHouse or Trump’s campaign officials are aware of Michael the Black Man’s turbulent history or extreme political views.
White House press secretary #SarahHuckabeeSanders responded to a #WashingtonPost query about Michael the Black Man by saying, in a Wednesday-morning email: “You would have to contact the campaign.” The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
President Trump gave a contentious speech at a campaign rally in Phoenix on Aug. 22, attacking the media, GOP senators and "obstructionist" #Democrats . #PhoenixRally#TheSavageRoom#Savage
