Talladega College’s band has accepted an invitation to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration parade, according to the Associated Press — and not everyone is happy about it.
We were a bit horrified to hear of the invitation,” Talladega graduate Shirley Ferrill told the AP. “Ignore, decline or whatever, but please don’t send our band out in our name to do that.”
The historically black liberal arts college has agreed to march in the parade after other HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), such as Howard University, opted not to participate.
So what are Democrats so made about?
This is just a college that happens to have mainly black students marching in a huge event. Apparently, however, the Dems still think Black people should be allowed to do or support who they want without permission.
Trump’s team has managed to enlist 16-year-old former “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho to sing the national anthem. They’ve also booked the Radio City Rockettes, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and now Talladega College’s band.
Several high-caliber performers have already publicly rejected requests to take part in the Jan. 20 festivities, including Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, Elton John and opera singer Andrea Bocelli.
But the marching band itself was so excited by the news that they released a statement on Twitter expressing their joy:
A critic of the decision said, “After how black people were treated at Trump’s rallies, you’re going to go and shuck and jive down Pennsylvania Avenue? For what? What they did is a slap in the face to other black universities,” according to the AP!
And our question to them is how did he treat black people Donald Trump di nothing against black people it was just the mainstream media that twisted everything and made Trump look bad
The thing that REALLY has these liberals scared is the fact that Donald Trump’s simple message to America’s black communities resonated so well.
“LOOK HOW MUCH AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITIES HAVE SUFFERED UNDER DEMOCRATIC CONTROL. TO THOSE I SAY THE FOLLOWING: WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?”
So if he is such a “racist” then how do you explain him getting more black support than any other Republican in recent history? Exactly, you CAN’T!
