Trump Sacramento Rally “Yea I Was There, But I Don’t Support Him For President”

First Degree The D.E. explains his attendance at the Trump Sacramento rally and more

By Jimmy Frinks of The Fahrenheit Record

July 29, 2016

In the face of surrounding rumors and pressure about his alleged support of Donald Trump, First Degree The D.E. clears the air about his confirmed presence at the Trump Sacramento rally, his upcoming video, and the ‘Summer Of Fahrenheit’.

While traveling California, making his case to the American people, presidential hopeful Donald Trump held a rally in Sacramento on June 1st, 2016. The rally was held at The Sacramento Metro Airport with an intense police presence. This rally was preceded by a turbulent Chicago cancelation, and was followed by a bloody San
Jose Trump protest brawl. The Sacramento hangar in which this event was held, was secure, with the occational protests.

Supporters and protesters occasionally clashed in the two hour line

The Trump Sacramento rally line was two hours long, consisted of mostly white males, and bared a few protestors and conflicts. The media was deep, there was 10,000+ rally goers in attendance, and both tension and fun were in the air. Although a few flirted with the imagery, there were no confederate symbols seen. Republicans had come from the surrounding regions to hear the official nominee fire up the crowd, trash the media, and explain that America was going to be great again under his presidential leadership.

Trump arrives in Sacramento in dramatic fashion

On time, Donald Trump dramatically landed in his name-incrusted plane within eyeshot of the rally, to a frenzied crowd. The plane pulled up to the hangar, and ‘The Donald’ made his entrance. He literally began where he had left off the rally before, explaining how the media mistreated him during the veteran donation scandal, and trashing local Sacramento media as a result. The next 40 minutes was just what the supporters relished for, Trump’s random ideas on building a wall on the border, Hillary Clinton, China, our military, the economy; the full array of ‘Trump’. Once over, the rally goers appeared content with the performance, and left the hangar energized for a Trump presidency.

Trump asks the crowd, “Who’s gunna pay for the wall?!”

Days after the rally, rumors spread in the Sacramento streets that one of the few African-Americans that attended the Trump was none other that local rapper First Degree The D.E.

A YouTube video of the full rally, posted by Right Side Broadcasting, clearly shows an African American man in the front, near Trump, during a post-rally meet and greet. His arms appear on the right of screen at the 50:30 mark of the video. At one point, it appears verbal and/or nonverbal communication is made between the presidential hopeful and the Black man. Once word spread that the Black man was wearing First Degree The D.E.’s signature red, black, and green wristbands, the video went semi viral and First Degree The D.E. says he felt the heat from fans and friends alike for “supporting a demagogue racist”. The Fahrenheit Record spoke to the Sacramento vet to set the record straight.

First Degree The D.E. at the Trump Sacramento rally

“Yea I was there, but I don’t support him for president” First Degree clarifies. “He’s funny to me, he’s a simple, privileged man that speaks off the cuff, is addicted to power, an isolationist, a bully, a sexist, and knows how to stir fear. Its great!”  First Degree continues, pointing out that Trump doesn’t have the temperament to be president, and feels Trump is too vindictive for the Oval Office. “Can you imagine Donald Trump with the nuclear codes? We’d be on the verge of war because of a Twitter feud! Trump would be great as a new and improved Rush Limbaugh, on the air everyday ranting, but not a Commander-In-Chief. He doesn’t have enough empathy.” First Degree The D.E. also notes that living to serve the people, “isn’t something you can turn on like a light switch, its a passion that burns one’s whole life.” The Sacramento rap legend also affirms that he and the presidential hopeful did communicate briefly.

When asked if he thought Donald Trump was a racist, First Degree The D.E. goes on to explain that he agrees with Seattle area activist and artist Thunderchief, with his view that Trump is an ethnocentric. According to Merrian-Webster, you are an ethnocentric if you have ‘the idea that your own group or culture is better or more important than others’. “As a Marcus Garvey Black Nationalism learner, its hard for me to hate on that,” First Degree admits.

While addressing Trump followers, First Degree The D.E. has observed that many of the them are White people that feel the benefits of white supremacy slowly seeping away. “A white person doesn’t have to be a racist to appreciate American white supremacy. To some whites, the thought of an equally diverse nation is exciting and stimulating. To others, the thought of true racial equality is threatening. To the latter whites, America was ‘theirs’, they are losing it, and it’s time to to ‘take it back’. Code words like ‘silent majority’ and ‘great again’, the quoting of negative minority statistics, are calls to white supremacy,” First Degree discloses. “The strong minded whites have an obligation to lift their small minded, white supremacy-clinging brothers out of the bounds of their fear”

The Fahrenheit Record Video

In time, First Degree The D.E. leaked the true reason he was at the Trump Sacramento rally, it was to film a video. “For the last three months, I’ve been takin’ on the persona of a reporter. My next video, ‘The Fahrenheit Record’ is dedicated to the hottest, upcoming urban news site in the region by the same name. It’s a funny parady on the news and what goin’ on in the world.” The song is featured on First Degree’s latest album, ‘Black Bane, Misunderstood Hero, Part 1’. ‘The Fahrenheit Record’ song questions the motives of mainstream media and does something about it by creating its own news publication.

The Fahrenheit Record song was first leaked by Sacramento News & Review. It is produced by Sacramento legend Phonk Beta and the upcoming video is being directed by Fahrenheit genius, Sic Ill.

In addition to the Trump Sacramento rally, The D.E.’s three months as a reporter included exclusive stories and footage from many news makers. The list includes Bernie Sanders, The Sacramento Black Lives Matter Movement, Steph Curry, Justin Timberlake, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Patrick Peterson, Jerome Bettis, Jerry Rice, Marshall Faulk, Blake Bortles, Andre Iguodala, Wes Welker, Tim Brown, Marcus Allen, The Fahrenheit Crew, the list goes on. When asked if all of these celebrities were in the upcoming ‘The Fahrenheit Record’ video, First Degree The D.E. confirmed by saying, “Like Mac Dre told me, they all in my moooovie!”

Summer Of Fahrenheit

The ‘Summer Of Fahrenheit’ is a term that has been floating around the internet as of late. For the record, we asked First Degree The D.E. what is was all about.

“The Summer Of Fahrenheit gave birth to the new talent we have for the Fahrenheit family and our worldwide fanbase,” First Degree informs, “providing shlappage for your speakers. First off, the Bay Area’s Oji & The Ascension Team came wit that ‘Technoetics’. Pure African instrumental, soulful vibe for you to meditate to. Greg Double came next, that Norf Wes party music happin’ wit that ‘From Tacoma With Love’. Den that AWALL aka 2Piece, the Tacoma O.G. came with that ‘Rock It Like This’, makin’ the game pop! Be on the lookout for the #RecognizeTacoma movement tho. The Summer Of Fahrenheit is taking Fahrenheit’s West Coast world-wide! Soupbone and Josh Rizeberg up next too, Fahrenheit’s on fire right now!”

In addition, First Degree The D.E. proudly boasts of the upcoming upgrades to their websites, including FirstDegreeTheDE.com, SacramentoRap.com, CaliforniaRap.com, USRapNews.com, and TacomaRap.com. The Summer Of Fahrenheit also included a First Degree video appearance on French rapper GhostDEST’s video, ‘Parania’.

Endorsement

First Degree explains he’s voting for Hillary Clinton in November. He explains that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary knowing Hillary would win it in this TFR article about the Bernie Sacramento rally. He conceds that his vote was more of a “point vote” supporting Bernie and his ideas, and that Senator Sanders’ intentions are “pure”. First Degree informs us that he admires Hillary Clinton and her service record, as well.

“My dad’s family is from Arkansas. My uncle, Eddie D. Colen, had a personal relationship with the Clintons, and that’s good enough for me. She has the ‘service bug’. I’ve moved forward on my thoughts.” First Degree reveals.

Bernie In Sacramento, Who Was There And Why

BERNIE IN SACRAMENTO
Who Was There And Why

By The Fahrenheit Record’s Jimmy Blog

Sacramento, Ca, May 9th, 2016 –  Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders came to Sacramento and was greeted by an unprecedented, diverse crowd of 20,000+.  The Fahrenheit Record was at Bonnie Field to find out who was at the rally and why.

In a unique presidential season, there has been one voice that has resonated across party lines. That is the voice of Bernie Sanders. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have taken note of Senator Sanders’ message of income inequality, social justice, the plight of the poor, and corruption in the American campaign system. Both presidential front runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have praised Senator Sanders and have utilized Sanders’ perspectives in their rhetoric. Bernie Sanders’ purpose had lead to a massive grassroots following. On Monday May 9th, Sanders brought “the Bern” to Sacramento, and the crowd was one of Sacramento’s largest, most diverse, ever to attend a Sacramento event.

Some showed up in the morning to head the line of the 5:00pm event

“The crowd’s diversity reminded my of an E-40 show on steroids!” Sacramento activist First Degree The D.E. observed. First Degree The D.E. is a local musician, teacher, recent Master’s degree graduate, and has brokered a truce between Sacramento Bloods and Crips gangs. He has recently pledged his support for Bernie Sanders in a Fahrenheit Record article about the Chicago Trump rally protest. He goes on to include that people from all walks of life attended the rally. “It (the diversity and crowd size) reflects Bernie’s passion for the people.”

While sifting through the quarter mile long line, one could not only find a wide range of people waiting up to three hours to get into the event, but also see them interacting with each other. Groups ranging from students, to retired professionals, and all in between, gathered to hear Bernie Sanders’ call for a political revolution. Although the Sacramento Bee states that the crowd was made up of “mostly white millennials” The Fahrenheit Record took time observing the whole event from start to finish and saw a different picture.

Blacks, Whites, Asians, Latinos, Native Americans, Middle Easterners, straights, gays, women, men, young, middle aged, old, all exchanging ideas with strangers that became friends. “I spent a couple minutes eavesdropping on a hard core vato talking politics and ideas with a group of hippies and some goth girls. Where else you gunna find that than a Bernie rally?!” First Degree The D.E. ponders.

Bernie In Sacramento 7

Bernie In Sacramento 12

Crowds continued to converge onto Bonnie Field well after 9:00pm for the 5:00pm Bernie In Sacramento event

With only four days public notice of this event, the reason these people attended this “political revolution” was just as important as the message itself. The Fahrenheit Record spoke to about 100 attendees, asking them one simple question, “Why are you here?”

While many attended to support Bernie the candidate, just as many were there to support his ideas. Many had appreciated Mr. Sanders’ unveiling of our political system’s secrets and corporate influence. They credit his empathy towards all and his collective nature for their support. Those surveyed stated they were at the Bernie in Sacramento rally because it just, “felt right” and they “wouldn’t miss it for the world” as a couple of attendees put it. Many appreciated his concern for future generations and selflessness as well.

A significant amount of people said they somewhat liked Hillary Clinton, and some said they would have a hard time voting for Hillary, but would. A vast majority of the Bernie Sanders rally mass thought that if Hillary Clinton won the Democratic nomination, she would be wise to put Senator Sanders on the ticket as vice president.

The most common answer given on why event goers supported Sanders was that they trusted his judgment. Answers praising his moral compass, clear purpose, past opposition to American political mistakes, and past support of civil rights, were sighted.

While being interviewed by The World Socialist Web Site, First Degree The D.E. was asked why he attended the Sanders event. He agreed with others, explaining, “The one thing everyone can agree about Bernie Sanders is that his intentions are pure.” He went on to explain that presidents get a lot of information and it is our job, as the voting public, to put a person in office that will, nine times out of ten, make the best choice for the country.

Comradery was high at this Cal Expo affair. Friends were made, connections were connected, and bonds were bonded. Amogst the crowd, people from all walks of life were getting involved in the political process, being a part of change, and being heard. Musicians played and people spoke, ramping up the massive, patient crowd for the Senator.

Although poll after poll shows Bernie Sanders beating Donald Trump by a bigger margin than his opponent Hillary Clinton, Sanders is trailing Clinton in the Democratic primary. Mr. Sanders would need 85% of the remaining delegates to catch her. The candidate’s underdog status makes the Bernie in Sacramento crowd that much more fascinating.

Bernie Sanders takes the stage with progressive ideas, collective thinking, and calls for unity

Once most of the crowd made their way inside the venue, Bernie Sanders took to the stage. He hit on his progressive message of unity, responsibility, and idealism. Sanders’ take on American empathy touched the people. “When your family hurts, mine is there to help. When my family hurts, you’re there to help,” Bernie Sanders declares to a roaring crowd. Bernie Sanders’ points about college tuition debt, gender equality, and Donald Trump not being the next president resonated with the audience, too.

As well as hitting his common points, Bernie Sanders personalized his message to Sacramentans and Californians. Being at a Bernie Sanders rally, as opposed to watching clips of them on CNN, was a much more comprehensive, enriching experience. Not only did the people that attended get to hear a full version of Bernie Sanders’ vision for the future from the man himself, they got to be among people like themselves, people ready for a political revolution.

When Bernie’s speech was over, The Fahrenheit Record followed First Degree The D.E. to a gated off area on the right side of the stage. After given Secret Service clearance, First Degree The D.E. was seen in a designated area with approximately 75 other rally attendees and press. While in this area, Bernie Sanders and First Degree The D.E. was observed shanking hands and exchanged words.

When later asked what he and the presidential candidate talked about during their brief encounter, First Degree replied, “That’s a conversation between two activists.” He did include that some of it was caught on tape and will be featured in his upcoming ‘Say Serra’ music video, from his most recent album, ‘Black Bane, The MIsunderstood Hero’. “Like Mac Dre would say, ‘Bernie, you in my mooovie.'” The D.E. included.

Bernie in Sacramento was a 20.000+ diverse congregation of political dreamers. It was inspirational and good for Sacramento.

Tech N9ne and Brotha Lynch

tech n9ne is trying to steal brother lynchs wifeTech N9ne Is Trying To Steal Brotha Lynch’s Wife

By Jimmy Blog Of The Fahrenheit Record

During First Degree The D.E.’s visit on UGS Radio, Brotha Lynch claims Tech N9ne is after his wife.

On April 14th, 2016, First Degree The D.E. was on The Murder Master Music Show and delivered many surprises, including bringing Brotha Lynch into fray. During the hour and a half long interview, First Degree The D.E. discussed his new album “Black Bane, The Misunderstood Hero”, it’s purpose, it’s musical production, the racial epithets he occasionally uses in songs, being banned from Strange Music, his recently earned Master’s Degree, and much more.

It was near the end of the episode when things took a turn.

About twenty minutes into the episode, First Degree The D.E. surprised hosts Prez B, Mac, and the MMMS audience by having the one and only Brotha Lynch Hung call in. They talked about the two’s relationship, which seems to be mended now, Lynch’s new EP “Bullet Maker”, and to everyone’s surprise, the accusation that Tech N9ne is trying to steal Brotha Lynch’s wife. Lynch asserts on the show, “He won’t stop ’til he gets my wife!” He didn’t go into detail, instead went on detailing his appreciation for Strange Music.

During the interview, Brotha Lynch reflected on his time at Strange Music. Lynch’s latest release, “Bullet Maker”, was released on Lynch’s own label, Madesicc Music. It is unclear if Brotha Lynch’s next full album, “Kevlar”, will be released by Strange Music. Observers of Brotha Lynch and Tech N9ne have noted a unique bond between the two, filled with deep admiration and power riffs.

“During Brotha Lynch’s time with Strange Music, he and Tech N9ne had an interesting relationship. Tech grew up on Lynch, yet Tech owns the label Lynch is now on and has a vast audience of his own now. On the flip side, Lynch is a proud MC with a vast, devoted following, and past label troubles that haunt him to this day” First Degree explains to The Fahrenheit Record. First Degree served as Brotha Lynch’s manager during the Brotha Lynch/Strange Music merger. He includes, “there’s definitely a weird element between Lynch, his wife Lauren, and Tech goin on.” Could Tech N9ne be trying to steal Brotha Lynch’s wife for sport?

In one of Tech N9ne’s singles, “Mental Giant”, Tech N9ne raps that he’s, “narcissistic, dark and wicked”. Was the result of the mix of an MC with an ego, and a proud MC bringing it back, toxic, or historical? The debate will be waged for years, yet only time will tell.

In addition to Tech N9ne Brotha Lynch controversy, First Degree and Lynch gave the audience an inside look into the album making process.

When it came to defining the Black Bane concept, First Degree The D.E. explained that the Black Bane character is a hero for the people. He aimed to inspire and inform, with the type of music that changes the game. He has just completed his Master’s degree in global teaching strategies and was ready to get back into the studio. First Degree’s baritone rap and singing style is unique, truthful and remains cutting edge. He explains that for the music, he relied on Phonk Beta, with guest production by Oji El, Eric Otis, Sultan Mir. “Live piano, live guitar, and inspiration” The D.E. reveals. On the album’s first single, the title track “Black Bane”, First Degree challenges the listener to stand up and fight for somebody. Black Bane is very well put together and has a new, fresh vibe that spews of talent, musical innovation, and time. Prez B of UGS calls Black Bane First Degree’s best album to date. His review can be read HERE.

First Degree went on to address some of the controversy surrounding lyrics on his new “Black Bane” album. Some have taken offense to racial epithets used in his songs. For example, during the interview, host Scott Bejda played “Say Serra” from Black Bane. It included the lines, “(I) gots, the kind of Jews, you can’t refuse. The kind of Japs thats peel ‘yo caps. The kind of spooks, thats put up dukes. The kind of crackas, thats serious backas. The kind of Messicans, thats spill ‘yo ‘intesskins’. The kind of Mooslims, thats make ‘ya dooslims,. The kind of Flips thats flips they whips.” On The Murder Master Music Show, and later with The Fahrenheit Record, The D.E. provides insight into the use of these terms.tech n9ne is trying to steal brotha lynchs wife first degree

First Degree The D.E. uses words like “crackas” and “Moooslims” to bring attention to his message about race

“Ironically, the same people that are sensitive to my use of these words, are the same people that need to hear it,” First Degree The D.E. explains. He also discloses that he represents the underground people, he uses the racial epithets to get peoples attention on the topic, inform, and is sometimes joking. “I get tired on the N-word in songs, and folks repeatin it when they shouldn’t be,” includes The D.E.

The 20 year rap veteran also justifies his lyric, “Can’t give a white bum money, shoulda cashed in on ya privlege, ya dummy!”. This line appears on his latest video, “I Wear Black Cuz Its Just My Style”. First Degree points out that he has in fact given white homeless people money, and hints that the line’s purpose was shed light on white privilege. In the past, First Degree has stirred up racial controversy for his single, “Listen Up, Ya Honkey” from his Super Black album.

“I couldn’t believe he did that,” reveals Brotha Lynch during the interview.

Brotha Lynch Hung was very open during this rare interview he participated in as well. The 27 year rap veteran also updated us on rumors in the Sacramento rap game, including his health, legal troubles, and X Raided’s release. Lynch explained that he was in the hospital last year, and had recovered. He stated that he had gotten so sick that, “my wife said I was walking around with my pants down”. He also talked about recently getting off of probation for nine months and going sober during that time. Now off probation, on the show he proclaimed that he was “real high”. In regards to the rumors that X Raided had been released in prison, Lynch explained the X Raided did not get released, yet has a parole hearing in 120 days. Popular rap news website Sacramentorap.com is normally the first to have the scoop on these type issues. Brotha Lynch also frequently talked about his wife Lauren from her “beatin up every bitch in Sac”, to her cooking.

Brotha Lynch and First Degree had real good things to say about each other. They talked about stimulating each other, their friendship outside the studio, and finding it important to have each other’s input on projects. The two have been making music together for over 20 years, most famously on Lynch’s “Loaded” and First Degree’s “Planet Zero”. In addition, Brotha Lynch hinted at the making of a group album with First Degree, and Phonk Beta, and himself. “Im hopin’ that me and D.E. can put an album together. It’ll be epic because all the classic stuff we’ve done. Fans on my Instagram all day like ‘when you gunna work with D.E. again?'”

A key factor in First Degree and Brotha Lynch working again is his current ban from Strange Music. As a result of juggalo backlash, First Degree The D.E. had been banned from Strange Music’s website and location. On the MMMS, The D.E. stated that he and Strange Music are peers and they should go back to working together. “Strange Music, un-ban me from ya facilities!” proposes First Degree The D.E.

From the “historic” 258th episde of UGS’s Murder Master Music Show, it is obvious that good things are here and to come from Brotha Lynch Hung, First Degree The D.E., and Sacramento rap’s future.

Trump Chicago Protest, The 2016 Race, and Black Perspective

Trump Chicago Protest

The 2016 Race, and Urban Perspective

By The Fahrenheit Record’s Jimmy Blog and First Degree The D.E.

On March 11th, 2016, the people of Chicago, Illinois took the Republican Primary Race into their own hands. While the Republican establishment failed to stop The Demagogue, the citizens of The Windy City infiltrated a Donald Trump rally at The UIC Pavilion and “showed how to deal with a bully” one protester declared on CNN. As a result, the 2016 Republican Race, and history, has taken a dramatic turn.

By showing up in numbers at this rally, these activists have reminded the nation, and the world, that the power is with the people.

The Trump Chicago protest send the world a message rejecting hate

Trump has no chance of winning an American presidential election. After Mitt Romney’s 2012 loss to President Barack Obama, the Grand ‘Ol Party finally concluded that without a considerable amount of the Latino and African American vote, they will never win a general election. According to The Washington Post, 8 out of 10 Latinos nationwide have a highly-unfavorable view of Donald J Trump. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

WIthout respect and empathy, ideas are hollow. The Republican head honchos and major donors know this, yet the voters the Republicans have targeted over the years, are more focused on the message of Donald Trump. Bigotry, reaction to fear, and loss of economic opportunity rooted from the George Bush era and outsourcing, has “trumped” policies, substance, history, or chances of winning, in this race.

America is more divided than ever, blah, blah, blah. The reality is diversity is enriching and in order to move forward, those that resist will rise for a last, unsuccessful whohaa. That whohaa is The Donald Trump “Movement”. The victim are American morality, and the Republican Party.

Trump Chicago protest activists took to the streets by the thousands

According to The New York Times, more “Americans” are killed and tormented by White supremacists that radical Muslim groups. The word American is in quotes because the experiences of these vicims, people of color, don’t count. While Muslim jihadist terrorism brings out passion in the American people, White supremacy is not considered. Chicago has shown, its time for the strong-minded Whites to check the small percentage of their people that stifles American progress due to unwarranted fear. By “check” I mean put them in their place, educate, inspire.

The “Silent Majority’s” Great White Hope will not stop at any costs. His people are fearful on the direction of this country, you know, Whites “losing control” of America. America is changing, the population is becoming more diverse, and there is a small portion of the White community, most with limited experiences, that is scared to death by this. While it can be said that Trump is single handedly leading the Republican party into destruction, it is also fair to say that years of extreme, fearful Republican propaganda has lead to this Trump movement.

Chicago reminded the world the power is with the people

While members of the right have tried to categorize the protesters, they came in all shapes and sizes. The power is truly with the people.

As a result of the Trump Chicago protest, Donald Trump events have had more and more protesting incidents occurring. The following day after the Trump Chicago protest, a rally in Ohio had a protester rush the stage, causing a panicked Donald Trump to turn around and secret service to rush the stage. A later rally in Kansas City was constantly inturrupted by what Mr. Trump called “Bernie’s people“, another attempt to categorize.

On a recent episode of Fahrenheit Radio’s “Fahrenheit Hour 25”, Fahrenheit Historian Big J includes, “The people that are supporting Trump are too damn dumb to know that he doesn’t give a f*&% about them!”. The historian and native Chicagonian also goes on to connect Chicago with other acts of revolutionary protests and politics. The episode in its entirety can be heard HERE. Although critics of Trump’s momentum down play the intelligence of the people involved, it reminds that Trump’s rise isn’t about substance, its about making a point.

Trump Republicans won’t vote Latino. Cruz, Rubio should drop out

Look at the people supporting Trump. Do you think the vast majority of Republicans are going to vote to put a Latino in office? They are trying to get of yall! Rubio and Cruz drop out now.

The only chance of the Republican Party saving face is to elect Governor John Kasich in a brokered convention. The Trump crowd will not vote for a Latino in a general election, and they have the numbers and excitement at the moment. They would stay at home on election day, or even worse for the GOP, vote Trump on a third or written in ticket. However, the “silent majority” would chose Kasich over Hillary.

When I lived alone in the mid 2000’s, I remember watching an infomercial including a Donald Trump interview peddling something. It featured a 40ish blonde woman asking Trump questions and blushing over him at the same time. I don’t remember what the infomercial was peddling, but because it came on practically every night for a period of time, and I didn’t have cable, I watched it a few times. It was interesting, and dare I say, inspiring. It’s hard to believe the Donald Trump of the 2000’s turned into the fear-exploiting demagogue before us today.

Trump’s temperment makes him unfit for the United States Presidency

Some will say that Trump has a handle on the country’s foreign trade deficit needs. Fine, give him a role providing input on that. However, the message from the Trump Chicago protest activists is don’t vote to give him the role of president.

History will show that the activists from the Trump Chicago protest changed the direct of the 2016 Presidential Race and perhaps saved the country.

TRUMP & CHICAGO

Insight from Big J, Fahrenheit Record Historian

    I received a text message Friday evening from an old friend and classmate from college Michael Colen many of you know him as First Degree hip hop artist from Sacramento. The text simply read “God Bless Chitown.” I had just gotten home and had cracked a beer and had the tv locked in to the Bulls and the Heat. I’d heard about what was going on in my hometown the protests over a scheduled rally and appearance by Republican candidate for President Donald Trump. I turned from the game to CNN I watched what unfolded on the tv with great interest. I listened to the reporters commentary, the clashes between those that objected to Trump’s appearance and his “politics” and those that support his candidacy. As the evening continued to unfold I was struck with a feeling of great pride.

trump & chicago 14

Trump & Chicago can be explained by non-profits like “I Grow Chicago”

    Nationally the narrative about Chicago has been mostly negative, the gun violence in the black community, the deaths of unarmed African American citizens Laquan McDonald a 17 year old who was shot and killed by a police officer, a shooting that was captured on video. Recently another video was released depicting the shooting of Cedrick Chatman a teenager that was shot on January 7, 2013 after running from a stolen vehicle, the city had been trying to suppress the release of this video. A separate shooting in December 2015 in which Bettie Jones age 55 was shot “accidentally” by police. The mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel has been under fire due to the police shootings and many have called for him to step down as mayor.

Many Chicagoans were excited when filmmaker Spike Lee announced that he would be filming Chiraq and hoped that this movie would shed light on, engage conversation and hopefully change regarding the increasing gun violence in Chicago, which in my opinion is genocide. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case, the premise of the film was that a gang leader’s girlfriend encouraged other women to withhold sex until the violence stops. This was not a film that many took seriously and we felt that an opportunity had been missed. Chicago is not new to protest or police violence, see the 1968 Democratic Convention and the murder of Black Panther Fred Hampton in 1969 after having been drugged as he lay in bed with his pregnant girlfriend.

Trump & Chicago is not he first time the city protested a political event

    I think Trump’s popularity is due to Obama’s two terms as president a presidency which many have never accepted. Trump says that he wants to make America great again but has not laid out his plan in which to do so. His comments are often inflammatory he talks of building a wall to keep foreigners out of the country and protecting our borders. The increasing incidents at his rallies in which many African Americans that have been threatened and harmed physically. What has Trump done to condemn these actions? He says nothing which is basically encouraging his supporters to continue this behavior. This is only going to escalate…his supporters feel emboldened and I predict this is going to have dire consequences eventually.

 

Let’s remember premise of this country was for those from other countries to come to these shores to find acceptance and opportunity. The true native Americans are Indians and we see what happened to them. My ancestors built this country after having been kidnapped from Africa and brought here to work as slaves toiling in massa’s cotton fields. Not viewed as a human more along the lines of an animal to work and breed until you work yourself to death. You were subject to being sold away from your family at any moment but that’s a topic many don’t want to revisit.

America is just getting over the eight year fiasco that was the Bush administration. If Trump is elected as the next leader of the free world long will it take for him to ostracize himself and us from the international community? How long will it take for him to refer to German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a dumb bimbo or refer to another world leader’s penis size?

The rise of Trump has been compared to Hitler

We can’t afford to elect Donald Trump to be the 45th President of the United States, the people in my hometown of Chicago showed Friday night. I’m proud of the statement that was made that evening, I’m proud that Trump was forced to cancel his rally, I hope that he never comes back to the city. I encourage everyone to stand up and be heard at this time in protest and also on election day. The stakes are too high and we have too much at steak as a country to still be divided by racism, bigotry and fear.

Quoting the late great Bob Marley from his song Revolution, “Never make a politician grant you a favor, they will always want to control you forever.” I typically don’t trust politicians but I engage in the process because of the sacrifices many before me have given to allow my voice to be heard and so I vote. Unfortunately oftentimes the process is like selecting between the lesser of two evils. In this case the evil wears a bad toupee, has orange hued skin and is loudmouth with no political experience, are we really seriously considering placing our collective fortunes in his hands for the next four years?
