Trump Supporter on CNN: “I Don’t Live In a Black Neighborhood,” So I Don’t Worry About “Getting Shot”

Retired Brigadier General Remo Butler went on CNN Tuesday to explain why he was one of the 88 retired generals to throw their support behind Donald Trump, but went off on a tangent to explain why he supported Trump as a black man.

“A lot of black people don’t support Donald Trump for their own reasons, and I don’t think that the Republican Party has done him any favors by helping him with his outreach to the minority communities” he said. “Most minorities, we want the same thing that everybody else wants. The media — and I’m not bashing the media, I would never bash the media, but you heard this– the media sets the tone.”

Butler said that watching TV, “you would think that all black people are on welfare, we live in the ghetto, we’re so afraid of getting shot, and we wear our hair in dreadlocks. As you can see, I don’t wear my hair in dreadlocks because I don’t have hair. Two, I speak fairly well, people can understand me. Three, I don’t live in a black neighborhood so I’m not worried about going out and getting shot.”

“Most of my friends are like me. We are, as Reagan said, the silent majority,” Butler concluded. “There’s a silent majority of black people — you notice I don’t use the term African-American — of black people out there.”
