Don’t think Isaiah Washington represents an anomaly. In fact, Washington is the norm among blacks.
Naturally, the media and other Leftists don’t want the truth getting out. And that truth is that blacks know Obama sucked and Trump rocks.
No “blexit” needed, as black Democrats have for decades known that Democrats are as demonic as their name suggests. Until Donald Trump hit the scene, black Leftists had no real frame of reference for the other side. Now they do.
Forget the small gestures President Trump made towards the black community, it was his most recent one that matters. Criminal Justice Reform.
Even hardcore Leftist Van Jones praised the president, saying essentially that the reason the First Step Act passed was due to the persistence of Donald Trump:
But Jones isn’t the only black taking notice.
As The Daily Mail reported, actor Isaiah Washington spoke truth to power, alerting Democrats that he’s on to them.
Actor Isaiah Washington has slammed Barack Obama for not supporting ‘Africa or the Black Agenda’ while praising Donald Trump for inviting him to the White House to celebrate the First Step Act prison reform.
The former Grey’s Anatomy star tweeted his thanks to ’45’ while criticizing ’44’ in a series of posts where he shared pictures of the current president from this week.
Washington was at the White House to see the celebrate a prison reform bill, the First Step Act, which is focused on inmate rehabilitation.
He wrote: ‘I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand.
‘Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct.’
For all the naysayers who called blacks “sellouts”, men like Jim Brown, Ray Lewis, Kanye West and other blacks who dared to meet with President Trump, add Washington to this growing list.
Washington must understand that supporting Trump can’t help his career. Yet he’s speaking out not only for Trump, but against Obama.
Moreover, Washington bucked “black trend” when he declared, “I’m no black”, in response to ethnocentric racist and black fraud, Deray McKesson.
No amount of fame, fortune, travel, or skill will make a black person “not black.” To attempt to “escape blackness” is to lose in advance.
@deray I disagree sir. I’m no “black”…I’m Mende Temne on my maternal side and Mbundu on my paternal side. No one can get a visa to ‘Black”

As Washington noted, Barack Obama was too busy for him, as Obama befriended Jay-Z and Beyonce; mere props to his presidency.
For Obama, why worry about pleases blacks in general, when you have Jay-Z and Beyonce to handle your scandals.
Washington took note, and now judges Obama and Trump on their respective actions. Trust me, many more blacks have as well. And many more will begin to.
I’m proud to be part of the team of proud Americans who happen to be black who don’t look at life through a prism of blackness. While I am VERY proud to be black, I’m more proud and thankful to be American. I’m happy that many more black Leftists are waking up. And for the few I’ve help get “woke”, I’m happy to have dedicated myself to this goal over the past decade.
