Don King Drops N-Word While Introducing Donald Trump In Ohio

Donald Trump is back at it again pandering for the Black vote, and this time he brought his “African-American” Don King with him to do his dirty work.

According to ABC News, the boxing promoter introduced the reality star before African-American pastors in Ohio on Wednesday, when he let the N-word loose.

“I told Michael Jackson, I said, ‘If you are poor, you are a poor Negro — I would use the N-word — ‘if you are rich, you are a rich Negro,'” King said. As he continued, he stumbled, “If you are a talented intellectual, you are an intellectual Negro,” the 85-year-old said. “If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n*****, I mean Negro …”

Sigh … Sadly, it gets worse. 

“We need Donald Trump, especially Black people,” he said before introducing Trump as the “next president of the United States.”

Boy, bye. 

Study: The Average American Woman Now Up From a Size 14 to a Size 16; Black Women Bigger

The average woman’s size in America is no longer a 14.

According to a recent study published in the International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology and Education, the size has actually gone up to a 16-18. 

Researchers from Washington State University looked at data from the CCD and compared it to the ASTM International body measurements for “misses” and “women’s plus-size” clothing, Revealist reported. By looking at a sample of more than 5,500 women 20 years old and older, they found that the women’s waist size has increased 2.6 inches in the past 21 years, which translates into a size 16-18. 

But for Black women the average size is larger: 18-20. But this shouldn’t surprise us given that recent data suggests four out of five of us are either overweight or obese. 

The study’s author’s suggest that retailers need to adjust their clothes to their findings.

“The [average American woman] actually wears between a Misses size 16–18, which is equivalent to a Women’s Plus size 20,” the researchers wrote. “In light of this overlap in sizing classification, frequent reports of female customers being frustrated about the general fit and sizing of clothing is understandable.” 

Sigh … Inmate Terrill Thomas Dies Of Thirst In Jail Run By Pro-Trump Sheriff

An inmate’s death at a jail run by a supporter of GOP nominee Donald Trump was caused by “profound dehydration.”

According to The Huffington PostTerrill Thomas, 38, was found dead in a Milwaukee County Jail cell in April, nine days after being arrested in connection with a shooting. Other inmates claim Thomas begged for water and was denied his request for days before he died. The Journal Sentinel wrote that inmates told them the water in Thomas’ cell had been shut off for six days, with one inmate telling a guard, “If something happens to that man, it’s your fault.”

Erik J. Heipt, a lawyer for the Thomas family, told The Huffington Post no one “deserves” to die this way.

“They may well have had reason to turn off the water. There absolutely could be reasons why you’d want to turn off someone’s water in their cell. But to then not give them drinking water? That’s crazy,” Heipt said. “To make a human being die of thirst, where they have no ability to get their own water for survival, that’s pretty inhumane. It doesn’t get much worse than that.”

Ironically, the jail is overseen by Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., an avid Trump supporter who at the RNC led the crowd in applause when announcing that the officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray had been acquitted. Yeah, that dude.

Not surprisingly, Clarke’s office has no comment on Thomas’ death.
