Maybe I need to take better care of my eyes — aside from the daily self-administered glaucoma treatments — but damn if these Black Voices for Trump folks don’t look lily white to me.
Well, at least they’re wearing masks. Then again, maybe they’re hiding their faces to fool people into thinking they might be Black!

A roomful of white people listening to a Black speaker talk about how great Donald Trump is. How many of them are Fox News and OANN reporters, I wonder?
Oh, wait. Hey! This photo has a Black person in it!

Of course, if your Black Voices for Trump event turns into a game of Where’s Waldo?, you might just want to shitcan the whole concept. Maybe someone could tear-gas the white people out of these photos — but failing that, it’s difficult to see how a bunch of doughy white dudes walking around in “Black Voices for Trump” T-shirts is going to help your movement.
Oh, and do you remember this golden oldie?

Oh, well. At least he’ll always have Kanye.
