Russell Simmons & John Legend Slam Donald Trump For Being Racist


Donald Trump has pissed off more than a few people. Those included are Russell Simmons and John Legend. Russell Simmons took to his Twitter explaining that the Donald Trump we are seeing isn’t the Donald Trump he’s known all of these years. Russell called Trump’s campaign dangerous, racist and violent. Simmons also pointed out that Trump has waged war on the minority, plans to take the country back to 1963, and even offered to pay the legal fees for the man who assaulted an innocent black man at one of his rallies. John Legend took time out to help Donald Trump’s son understand that people have been protesting his racist father. The fact that this man is running for president and has a tremendous amount of supporters is just…..

    But Russell Simmons supports Hillary Clinton who says “black men are super predators”😐

      I feel what you are saying bro, she is just the lesser of several evils… Sanders is that dude but probably not electable in the general election. Most Americans equate Socialism with Communism… Trump called him a Communist the other day…

      • hoeyuno

        Thats fucced up!!!

      • RazaBladeKing

        Real talk, Hillary was talkin specifically about gang bangers, but that quote has been taken out of context like she labeled all of us that (not that I’m totally convinced she isn’t a lying racist). But you hit the nail on the head, and I’ll expand it. Most Americans don’t know s*** about the system that controls their lives (just as the system intended). America is a Republic, but most think it’s a Democracy… it would be impossible to have a true democracy with 350 million voices. The trick is literally in the capital letters. Jesus/Yeshua/Yahweh was a socialist (little s), and everyone agrees he was a pretty good guy; Mussolini was a Socialist (capital s), and everyone agrees he was a murdering psycho. The little letters are the theory, which is neutral; the capital letters are the political systems, and they are good or bad depending on how they are applied and their effects (like, conservatism is neutral – put money in business and war and those machines will create wealth for everybody; Conservatism fails every time, because those machines keep the money circulating at the top rather than spend it creating jobs/wealth for those below them). To your point, socialism is a good idea (everybody chips in equally, and everybody benefits equally), but as you see in North Korea, when it becomes Socialism (the political system), everybody actually ends up starving [equally] while the leaders flourish.

      • ZUBU

        Very good explanation!

  • “Russell Wilson took to his Twitter….”

    AHH… Do y’all mean Russell Simmons? Did your editor get locked in the bathroom when y’all published this sh*t?

    F*ck!!!

  • Pig Skins Have No Lips

    Funny how these pig skin caucasoids are always throwing the first stone, then when someone retaliates, they’ll be crying about terrorism. They’ve went at everyone, so when the race war happens, they’ll get jumped into extinction. They simply cannot coexist with others.

  • Chyze

    Not all white ppl are like Trump. He just represents the most dangerous of the evil in the upper crust. His life has been full of opportunity and wealth so it’s no wonder that his natural enemy would be those who have to work for every inch we gain in our race against the odds. Somebody better tell that thinned lipped orange a$$hole that karma’s a vindictive bytch.

    • Ionithus

      Not only that, but the racist that do support him don’t even know their own history about them being “white”. He doesn’t care about them either, truth be told. People like him use those uneducated dumb asses just in case shit hits the fan. Hypothetically speaking, if they had no people of color to deal with, they would go back to old Europe when shit was really fucked up and all about the rich vs poor. They need to be careful but who am I kidding?

  • PeoplePlease7

    One race hustler (simmons) criticizing another. These negroes will be coming out the woodworks over the next few months…

  • Leonard Tarver

    I can’t believe yall are buying this crap from the Mainstream Media. Trump ain’t racist. Not one person can’t name 1 thing he done that is racist 😂😂😂😭😂💦💦 Yall listen to whatever the News tell yall.

    Over 22 shootings in Chicago alone this month and there’s 2 weeks still left but blacklivesmatter right?

    • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

      .Is that enough for U?

      • hoeyuno

        OK I dont think Trump should be President of any country but where is the lists of businesses of his that are successful? Its easy to find a handful of failed businesses from a billionaire who’s constantly investing in money making opportunities.

        ****Your Avi is dope though

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        How can u run a country, when your own businesses have fail. Politics is not fair. If he make, all his skeletons will come out the closet. All fair in Love and War.

      • Leonard Tarver

        How do you become worth Billions if all of your businesses fail? 🤔

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        He’s not worth Billion, maybe 1, don’t be so easily manipulated.

      • Leonard Tarver

        How is he not when his assets a apart of the UKs economy? Lol If he pulled out their economy will crash

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        Where your source? They all deal across seas, but to ruin an economy. He still need his slave masters too, if he’s gonna run for president. By the way he still hasn’t disclosed his fiances yet.

      • Leonard Tarver

        How is a guy worth 4 Billion dollars not successful? 😂😂😭😭😂💦💦⚰

      • hoeyuno

        That is what I was saying. Those one percenters invest in start ups daily with the knowledge that a small fraction of them will pan out.

      • Leonard Tarver

        There you go another person that listen to Memes that someone made up. I don’t agree 100 percent with Trump but the Mainstream media is a bunch of liars. Look what they did to Cosby, Chappelle, Martin etc… Go watch Trump vs Mainstream Media…

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        LOL, another man in denial, Trump only cares about Trump, period. Trump is unpredictable, The High Rollers knows he will lose. This is politics, not about feeling. Play by the rules or u don’t play at all. Trump is just for rating and entertainment. Nothing more.

      • Leonard Tarver

        You’re right he’s not a politician and the elites are scared that they can’t control him and that he will expose them. Thats why they command the mainstream media to make him look like he’s not fit and turn people against him because Hillary is already preselected and he’s messing it up for them

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        Exactly.

    • hoeyuno

      You cant bundle black on black crime and Police officers shooting unarmed citizens in the same category. When peoples in the streets murder and get caught they go to jail for the rest of their lives.

  • WORLD DOMINATOR

    Trump tha Chump is RILING up the ‘racist’ in all of America, who are given ‘a pass’ by his BRAZEN ATTITUDE to Hate, Surpress Minorities, & Give a ‘I Don’t Give a F*CK’ attitude to those that have a lil bad taste with the street crime, laziness, thuggery, street crime & welfare attitudes of many minorities! He lit a FUSE……………….

    Amerikkka is a nation of criminal hypocrites (of all skin shades). These f*cking idiots decry Donald Trump but support Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama – two individuals responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of human beings and destruction of nations.

    If Donald Trump protesters had ambushed a Hillary Clinton rally and shot guns and beat people down, Donald Trump’s campaign would’ve gone up in smoke and the media would’ve had a field day with the event. Instead, people are holding Donald Trump responsible for what anti-Trump protesters who claim to be for Bernie but are most likely Hillary Clinton agitators did. Ain’t that some shit. Only goes to show how much power over the minds of people the media has.

    They tell you exactly what to think and you think just as they tell you to. Stupid buffoons. I am by no means a Donald Trump supporter, though some of what he says has merit, but I know brainwashed idiots when I see them.

  • In Black America Radio

    russell simmons shouldnt be talking…………his real issue with trump have to do with animals rights. plus all the disrespectful ish he been doing to black people……….F russell simmons. on another note………….is it me or do these trump stories really reveal who is Black and who isnt on this site

  • TRUTH SPEAKER

    George Soros is funding smear campaigns against Trump. What better way to smear someone than to compare them to Hitler or label them a racist?

    If that old white guy was at a Black Lives Matter rally talking sh!t and being disruptive he probably would’ve got hit too. Everyone is self serving, one sided, hypocritical, corrupt, and a crybaby. Fvck you all. And by you all I mean everyone: Black,white,liberal,conservative, democrat,republican.

  • RazaBladeKing

    So… how does “Donald Trump is not racist” jive with (from his own mouth)…
    -“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” So, Mexican Americans are all criminals. Sounds pretty racist.
    -“There’s no such thing as racism anymore. We’ve had a black president so it’s not a question any more. Are they saying black lives should matter more than white lives or asian lives? If black lives matter, then go back to Africa. We’ll see how much they matter there.” Need I say more?
    This born-millionaire, uneducated goof thinks “Build a wall” is an appropriate policy suggestion to a complex problem like immigration reform, and anybody dumb enough to support him deserves the same f*cked up country we lived in from 2001 – 2009. At the end of the day, Presidents are powerless figureheads; a pretty face to package a group of policies (either liberal or conservative). Its been that way throughout US history, through different party names, and it always will be. Either way, the system is gonna take your money (taxes). Either you want that money spent domestically (jobs, education, infrastructure) or worldwide (foreign affairs, business)… we’ve seen which theory leads to a better standard of living here, and which one makes sh*t harder for everybody [the 99% at least] every single time.

    • Leonard Tarver

      You do know prostitution in Mexico is legal for 12 year old girls right. In America thats called “Rape Bro”. Check the statistics for rape by hispanics. Its’ll blow your mind

      • RazaBladeKing

        Fascinating. What’s that got to do with the price of tea in China? In other words, how does that logically translate to “Mexican Americans are rapists”? We’ve got rapists over here, but you would sound retarded if you said “Americans are rapists”, right? That’s the problem with generalizations… the only generalization that’s true is Generalizations Are Never True. You only need 1 example to throw out the entire statement, and I know dozens of Mexicans who aren’t rapists. But clearly you think Trump isn’t a racist, so how bout his “Ban All Muslims From Entering The Country” proposal? Never mind how stupid that is as an anti-terrorism policy (anybody can just lie and say they’re not Muslim)… specifically banning a group of people with one common cultural characteristic is like the textbook definition of racism.

      • Leonard Tarver

        He didnt say all were rapist and he definitely didn’t say Mexican Americans. My wife is Mexican so thats not about to fly with me Bro. He also said stop the fluctuation of Muslims until we can figure this thing out. These radicals dont care what race you are. They’re killing anybody in which they didn’t report what just happened in San Bernadino the 2 black women that were murdered in the mass shooting. Nor all of the shootings in Chicago. I will protest as soon as we stop killing each other. Blacks weren’t killing each when Dr King was marching

      • RazaBladeKing

        Blacks were killing each other in the 60s, just not at the rate or level of concentration we’ve seen from the 80s on, which is more a function of drugs and weapons bein pumped into black communities, but that’s another topic. Trump does not draw a line between law-abiding Mexican immigrants and criminal Mexican immigrants, the same way he doesn’t draw a line between regular Muslims and radical Jihadi Muslims. It is because of those lacks of distinction (out of his own mouth) that he is labeled a racist, and rightfully so. He literally spews race-based generalizations; that’s the definition of a racist. And its why out of all the candidates on both sides, the open white supremacists are riding for him specifically.

  • RichFromBX

    call him a racist but the fact remains he’s employed and continues to employ more minorities than Simmons and Legend combined…you can even throw in anyone else you want in to that mix, including Oprah.

    The left continues to talk about the 1% and all but what you’ll never hear about is how their plans will impact everyone else. Bernie’s plan will destroy small businesses and burden them with $20,000 to $40,000 a week in additional costs between having to pay more in to health coverage and raises to get them to the proposed $15hr min wage. These smaller businesses can’t not take those cost on to survive.

    $9hr employee to $15hr employee = $240 extra a week.
    $160 week per employee in proposed tax increases and healthcare cost increase
    $400 a week in total increased cost per employee x 50 employees = $20,000 a week in added cost.

    No small to midsize business can take on $80,000 a month in additional costs without an associated plan on how revenues will increase to support those additional costs…the above isn’t opinion, it’s fact…they’re throwing a massive burden on people.

    But, when they get on their soapbox you’ll never hear that addressed. They’re plans will create further economic divide.

    • RazaBladeKing

      That’s all true. But what percentage of people do you think are business owners in this country? 5%? 10%? 25%. Here’s the better question. “The right” says give tax breaks and subsidies to business owners, and they’ll use that money to create jobs; after 8 years of Reagan we saw the ’91 recession (that cost Bush 1 the ’92 election), and after 8 years of Bush 2 we saw the ’08 recession (I myself was laid off from that one). So… we know that those “job creators” don’t actually create jobs, nor do they spend money at Wendy’s and Foot Locker to create new demand and force those business owners to create jobs… they spend that extra money at Jaguar and Bentley, with other rich guys reaping the benefits. The question is, both theories (“left” and “right”) are imperfect, but which one does the MOST good? I’ll give you a hint… unemployment was at 10% in 2009, and its a lil over 5% today. Those who forget history…

      • RichFromBX

        It’s not so much about what percentage of people own business, it’s more about the percentage of people are employed by small business owners. Across the country, 1000s, if not 10,000s of middle class folks would stand to lose there job just so someone can pound their chest about how they’re taking it to to the rich…the truth is, it will hurt the middle class above all.

        since you choose to snapshot history and with that got it wrong, here’s the broader facts for unemployment year over year going back to 2006:

        2006 – 4.6
        2007 – 4.6
        2008 – 5.8
        2009 – 9.3
        2010 – 9.6
        2011 – 8.9
        2012 – 8.1
        2013 – 7.4
        2014 – 6.2
        2015 – 5.3

        Unemployment is no different today than before Obama came in to office so what was your point in call out those figures? This is what is driving people crazy…it’s the same shit no matter who’s in the seat. I completely understand the inspirational aspect of seeing Obama as the President, will never argue against that but, in terms of bringing change…well, those are the stats, tell me where the change is?

        No success comes from creating new taxes because you can’t target specific people with taxes. You hurt more people than you help with those tactics…fix the existing problems.

        That’s the part in all of this that people aren’t understanding…Trump’s popularity is based on not being a career politician. People, as a whole, are tired of having establishment candidates who get nothing done. Maybe it’ll be the same shit with Trump but people are willing to roll the dice to find out.

        And as far as Trump being all about the corporations and the rich – there was meeting held within a larger conference where Tim Cook, Elon Musk and several other high profile 1% got together with GOP’ers to figure out how they can stop Trump.

        the Left don’t want him so they’re appealing to minorities in their fight and the Right don’t want him so they’re appealing to the rich…In the last 50yrs stopping Trump is the only thing the Left and Right has agreed on which to the people has translated that he’s the way to go

      • premo

        Nice try. But the unemployment rate is going back down and according to this month it is at 5.5. You forget that the policies of a president will cause long term effect and you don’t see it during their presidency. Obama is cleaning up Bush’s mess.

      • RichFromBX

        where did I ever say that the unemployment rate was going up?I only said that it’s right where it is when Obama came in to office?

        “You forget that the policies of a president will cause long term effect and you don’t see it during their presidency” – does that only count when things are fvcked up?

        Does the next President get to blame Obama for any bad shit they have to deal with or is the country just so great right now that the next one need only kick their feet up and wait for things to get better because of those fantastic policies of Obama’s that will kick in during their presidency?

    • Leonard Tarver

      Raising minimum wage is the dumbest solution ever. The government has tricked everyone to fight for higher wages while they still take the same percentage out of our checks in which they make more money to increase their salaries. By the way who approves the government workers salaries? Not Us? Smh The idea is to lower taxes…

  • Anthony Mason

    Just to let you guys know the dollar is about to slip by first quarter 2017. The healthcare penalties are going to f*** the middle to low class budget up due to zero to negative tax returns across the country. Obama was put in office to morally and further financially bankrupt us.

    It won’t affect the mega rich….They either print money or know the ones who do….
