Trump is no Racist - BET Founder

BET founder says Trump is not a racist, and stocks are right to rally post-election

Bob Johnson: I turned down a Trump Cabinet position  

Media mogul Bob Johnson, who met with President-elect Donald Trump earlier this month, told CNBC on Tuesday the post-election rally in the stock market has been a reaction to having a businessman in the White House.

The BET founder, a Democrat, also said on "Squawk Box" that he's known Trump for years and believes Trump wants to work with African-Americans and all Americans to boost the economy.

"To me, I never thought Donald Trump, and I still don't believe it today, was a racist. I don't believe that he's anti-African-American," said Johnson, founder and chairman of The RLJ Cos. "For too long, the African-American community has been ignored by the Republicans because they thought we were always locked with the Democrats."

Trump is not in either camp, Johnson said: "Certainly not an establishment Republican [and] he's not a Democrat, he was open. And he's a business guy. And business guys tend to look at where's the opportunity for a benefit."

The market is right to be optimistic about the possibility of Trump's policy proposals kicking U.S. economic growth into a higher gear, said Johnson, who had supported Hillary Clinton during the campaign.

Johnson met with Trump and top advisors Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus and Jared Kushner at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Nov. 20.

This rich man, his rich ex wife and children although they are black are living a white life at equestrian clubs and equestrian events where they are the only blacks around.

 

I remember him when he was poor.  He became rich selling out black people. He got the franchise to develop a black owned cable company ( not black content only) he could not gather the funds so sold that right to a white company much to the chagrin of all those black companies who were better than he and had real options to deliver content but were shut out because Barry forced the hand of Drew to vote for him. He is a sell soul.

Hip hop was a diverse genre which had political messaging as well as party themes.

Then along came drug lords from CA with their gangsta rap crap.  This portrayed to stupid upper middle class black boys that they only way to be authentic was to be a gangsta.  It showed stupid suburban white boys that to authentically black one had to act ghetto.  So now they have ghetto themed parties because they think that this is being "cool".

How did all of these folks get this image? BET compliments of this clown. He refused to play anything other than what white suburban boys wanted to here.  They didn't want to hear "Fight the Power", and they cannot dance, so they didn't want to her Will Smith, or other party themed rap.

They wanted shoot em up gangsta.

So why don't you educate me?  Makes no sense to engage in personal attacks when apparently you don't have any insights.

Note to you. BET was attacked by many for promoting gangsta rap and squashing other hip hop genres which didn't appeal to the white suburbs, and so had lower sales.  This is a FACT!  Wouldn't surprise me if there was payola, because in that era videos was the prime form of marketing, especially to the suburbs.

He will continue to make millions whilst u&d2 find all kinds of things wrong with man making money from white folks.

You miss completely the circumstance of his wealth. The story being told is that Barry and the DC city council wanted an exclusive black majority owned cable franchise beginning with a monopoly on cable in the District. They put out bids and lots of prominent groups came forth with proposals. He was a friend to the mayor so when the final consideration was before the council the Mayor but the squeeze on the council to vote for his proposals.

The fellow did not put up  a cent because he did not have it or the ability to persuade lenders to fund him. He squatted on the exclusive contract for a few years and with cable companies sprouting up everywhere the city was without a cable delivery system.

Instead of going back to the original bidders for help the City felt is was behind the 8 ball and conceded to  this fellow finding white partners. He sold his contract out completely to a white outfit and made himself a mint for doing absolutely nothing but getting over because of political pandering. It was a  kick in the stomach to the People of DC who still don't like him

He can do as he wishes, even selling women to this white men.  He can live with the damage that he has done.  I know that he doesn't have a conscience.

For a man who claims to be a Christian its amazing that you can justify sinful actions if those who do so make money.   Dare I say that you perpetrate a certain ethnic stereotype that many have of Indians?

Trump is not a racist person. The people sees Trump as racist because he is a white Republican. Democrats of any race sets in nicely with lower middle class and welfare recipients, because they think Democrats are working in their favor which is not true.

The facts that Trump is proven to be a president of all Americans, many who hates him are accusing him of racism and hoping he will fails along the way. 

In creole, people must check their pot bottom before labeling other people.

Trump said that blacks have a lazy gene.  Trump claimed that the majority of murders of whites were due to blacks.  Trump claims that a judge cannot exercise professionalism because he is Mexican.  Trump screams that 1/3 of all undocumented migrants are criminals.  Trump has engaged known racists (Bannon and Sessions) in his cabinet. Trump tweets all weekend because a young black/Hispanic group expressed fear of racism towards them, after hearing his campaign, observing heightened white supremacy, and Trump ignoring this.

Trump was also retweeting posts by white supremacists.

This is a man being tried guilty after he has proven so.  But I understand why this wouldn't disturb you.  You think that you are white and have the same anti black and anti Muslim views that he has. 

So cobra=Trump=racist!  I note your assertion about democrats and welfare, when in fact many of those who voted Trump get food stamps, disability insurance and other forms of social support!  Trump himself benefits from "welfare" when he uses tax loop holes to not have to pay income tax.

If he said so then they are frigging lazy. There is no two way about it. What a man have to do to speak the truth and be left alone? 

The day when Trump says that Guyanese Indians are unethical and a scourge on NYC as they destroy neighborhoods with illegal basements, which they use to stuff illegal aliens, you will sing a different tune.

And there are those who will say so.  All those Italians and others in Queens.

He is not even a republican. He is an opportunistic carpetbagger skating by on the republican platform. If nothing he said to date moved you to that conclusion that he is a racist it is because what he says is something you also embrace so it is not an anamoly to your thinking.

As I stated, what he said is quite in sync with your viewpoints hence his "truths" are yours as well.

I do not know what is Que Que to you if not a phrase you stupidly associate with nonsense. I bet if someone spoke to you about bhajan juice you will become annoyed and take to feeling slighted. Well Kwe Kwe  just a celebration at a wedding as Indians do.

Trump dont give a damn about you. Do you think when the bigots scream their hate do you think the care if you are indian or arab? Get real.

Actually, many Americans in that area thinks Guyanese Indians saved the neighborhood from Black drug lords and resurrected the inner-city slum it had become in the 70's!

But that is the Indian way.  Just look at Guyana!!

That's like saying, I covered more yards, so I should win, regardless you scored more touchdowns.

That Trump team was masterful, applying a ROI business principle to the election.  They went after the College "Golden nuggets" and left the Liberals to squabble over the "brass ingots"!

So he was walking over the finish line with a basket of deplorable "Golden Nuggets" while Hillary was sweating with her basket [and half] of deplorable "Brass Ingots!

Stoking racism and winning by a mere 70k votes is not much to speak of. It is in fact a backward step if not a downward slide of t his great nation. Dont worry, we are coming to rescue it in four years. Maybe pigs at the trough is what it needs to to take it to those areas of democratic clarity ***uyama spoke of. This is surely democracy expressed in the low end of the rowdy crowd.

Not sure where you talk about, but RH was a Black ghetto in the 70's.  Remember in the 80's drug dealers attacked an Indo-Guyanese who pushed into their hood and began improvements. The police were assigned to protect him and one police was killed!

Dude, I lived on In hollis in the early 90's and the drug sellers and dealers were not only blacks but indians as well. Then Socca Paradise was in full bloom. I went there a few times with Ramesh and outside was always filled with young indian girls who would gladly give you a blow job to buy them a ticket inside. Inside was also another story. You do not get to condemn others when Indians are easily ghettoized as any.

Here you go craving attention. How come you always seem to be present or met someone who is a VIP? Like said before, you tell some tall stories or you are very economical wit the truth. Did you get a blow job from any young indian(is it a buck girl?)? When is your reign of telling tall stories going to come to an end?

Isn't that something. She had bad Karma and so definite was her karma, it gave her much to contemplate on, 2 million plus votes. So close and still out of reach. A mind to empty on.

This clown is a real joker!  I frequented those places in the 80's and early 90's.  Never saw what he said.  He just loves to rubbish Indians, especially women.  I don't want to bring in females, but maybe he trying to mitigate the reputation of the Buck girls in Guyana!

Indians in Guyana always tried to upkeep their property as best as they could.  There were stark contrast between Indian and Afro villages.  These same people, when the arrived in the USA, bought dilapidated property in slums and worked 2/3 jobs to make it as spectacular as possible, at times even too much!

These anti-Indian haters just cannot handle the truth, so they come up with pure sh1t!

Craving what attention? with an alias? I know Ramesh and his brother though I never liked or associated with the latter.  Ask Nehru and your friend Cobra if you think I am wrong because they still mass in numbers at the local clubs. There used to be whore houses in Parsons full of Guyanese girls. There are also lots of drug fiend Guyanese girls on the prowl in the area. And No I never ever had a guyanese girlfriend much less guyanese Indian girlfriend since Guyana. Not that stupid.

I think he was involved with club tobago but was conned out of ownership. He wanted me to come and play at some club because he was into music sponsoring after I left. I told him I am a weekend musician and my band mates include an investment banker and a lawyer and also not professional musicians. I do not know if Club Tobago was what he referenced when I last spoke to him. I think his brother was Vishnu or something like that.  I know them but they were never my friends.

I believe it's him. He was in all the above and was conned out of business by his business partners and my cousin, who eventually get conned out by his fifth wife. The current business is Caribbean Cabana onJamaica Avenue. His business involved clubbing and live music. I don't know the full scope of his business involvement, but the few times I attended these places, I picked up bits and pieces of his business and lifestyle until he died. Crooks comes in all sizes and shapes. Some of his business partners cut him a raw deal. My own cousin was too ambitious and became one of the biggest crook until he lost everything.
