OAKLAND, CA.- Is Donald Trump your man ? Do you want a leader who demeans, antagonizes, disrespects, and dishonors minorities, women, poor people, and the disabled? A leader who promotes violence against other cultures, races, and religions, a leader that could throw this country into a military conflict anywhere in the world with his slip of the tongue.

If so then Donald Trump is your man.

The United States of America needs to ask itself these questions. Do you want a leader that has gone bankrupt not one, not two, not three, not four, but five times (Sorry, LeBron)? Do you want a leader that put a spring football league (USFL-The United States Football League) out of business by challenging the National Football League?


The USFL finally received a check for $3.76 in damages in 1990, the additional 76¢ representing interest earned while litigation had continued. Notably, that check has not yet been cashed.

 Is Mr. Trump a good business man or just a lucky entitled man and would you let him direct America’s financial future?


Two sports legends finally responded to Donald Trump political and social antics. The greatest heavyweight champion of all time Muhammad Ali and the Skyhook King and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, writing for, did not dance around the issue in any way: Trump’s irresponsible, inflammatory rhetoric and deliberate propagation of misinformation have created a frightened and hostile atmosphere that could embolden people to violence,” he wrote. He’s the swaggering guy in old Westerns buying drinks for everyone in the saloon while whipping them up for a lynching.”  

Ali said in a statement“I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.”

Ali and Jabbar went old school like the many older sports political activists of the past. These two men spoke up, unlike the Los Angeles Clippers two years ago. The Clippers turned their uniforms inside out and threw them in the middle of the floor, but otherwise remained silent.

This week was the 150th anniversary of the end of slavery in the United States with Congress passing of the 13th Amendment. America continues to have problems with race in this country..


This historic moment passed without fanfare or news statements by any newscast. The first Black President, Barack Hussein Obama could not have said it better while taking a dig at Mr. Trump with the freedom of religion statement.  Obama called on Americans “to remember that our freedom is bound up with the freedom of others, regardless of where they come from, or what they look like, or what their last name is, or what faith they practice.”

Obama said Americans “betray the efforts of the past if we fail to push back against bigotry in all its forms.”

Now some prominent Americans led by Donald Trump are pointing fingers at our Muslim Brothers and Sisters, not learning or understanding the history of racism and how it affects human beings. We have to stop this political and social nonsense.

This past week two Mosques were fire-bombed and a Shikh Temple was defaced.  The question should be asked, where did they get that idea? Some Americans still have not learn that Shikhs are not Muslim.


The question remains when will America come to terms with their  home grown domestic terrorist? The most recent; Charleston, South Carolina; The Christopher Dorner standoff; The Oklahoma City Bombing; and the historic 1921 Black Wall Street Bombing in Tulsa; Oklahoma; the 1950’s-60’s Southern Church bombings, this list will continue.

When will American come to terms with American terrorist groups? The American government quickly dismantled the Bay Area’s Black Panther Party or (BLA) Black Liberation Army but they drag their feet apprehending Caucasian groups.

The American media, the American government and Donald Trump let these groups slide. The Anti Abortion movement, The Ku Klux Klan, ALF-The Animal Liberation Front, AOG-The Army of God, Aryan Nation, ELF- Earth Liberation Front, The Order, UFF- the United Freedom Front and the Weathermen or the Weather Underground. Again this list will continue.

Donald Trump is a problem for Black people because we know his aspirations we know his political, social, and economic agenda. Latino Americans know, poor Asians-Americans know, and now Arab Americans know.

My Caucasian brothers and sisters refuse to call this man (Donald Trump) out and tell the world that he is bad for America and bad for the world. That Mr. Trump is a racist, a religious bigot, a sexist, and a disabled-ist.

Mr. Trump’s attitude has allowed newscasters on a certain network FOX NEWS to use curse words when refereeing to the President of the United States. Two presidential candidates (CRUZ and SANTORUM) have called the President the N-Word and not a peep from this network or any other network.


Mr. Trump’s attitude has allowed a state worker in Northern California to berate two Arab Americans praying on state grounds minding their own business. She bashes their cell phone, throwing hot tea on them and then used her pocketbook as a club. All of this before a park official arrived to stop the confrontation.


Mr. Trump’s attitude has allowed unknown persons to send mail with white powder inside to (CAIR)- Council on American Islamic Relations in Santa Clara, California and Washington, D.C. and to write hateful messages on social media and leave hateful messages on their answering machine. This attitude let unknown individuals throwing pigs head at the front door of different Muslim organizations.


Mr. Trump’s attitude has struck fear in the Muslim community when Islamic women who religiously cover their hair with the Hijab cannot walk down the streets in peace. They cannot do so in public without hearing racist or sexist remarks.


Yet Mr. Trump leads the polls of the Republican Party by double digits and what does that say about the (GOP) Grand Old Party? A recent (CBS) Columbia Broadcasting System poll stated that the majority of the Trump supporters are high school graduates and FOX NEWS uses this fact to fuel Trump’s bid to the White House.

Mr. Donald Trump wants to take this country back. Mr. Trump is clinging and capitalizing on the ever growing Islamophobia. That is a shame because I thought Americans were intelligent.

This man is dangerous; dangerous because he has endangered minority American lives.
