Comedian Eddie Griffin has had enough of Donald Trump and his supporters, and is threatening to move to Africa if Trump wins the 2016 election.
From US World Report:
Comedian Eddie Griffin appeared on Vlad TV’s webcast to offer incites into his views of racism in America as well as his thoughts on Donald Trump as a possibility as the next president of the United States.
After Kanye West made the announcement that he would be running for president in 2020, Griffin said he would support West over Trump, explaining that Trump was an “ignorant motherf#$%*.” He elaborated that Trump was good at making money, but that the Republican front-runner was ignorant.
In addition to these disparaging remarks, Griffin promised that if Trump won the election, he would move to Africa.
Griffin accused the Republican candidate of being racist. He said,
In addition to his threats about moving away if Trump is elected president, Griffin also made statements about the racism that he believes is alive in police forces across the nation.
Griffin agreed with the Vlad TV host who suggested that racist attacks from the police have been around for a long time, but are only being brought to the forefront of conversations because of social media. Because everything is being recorded with cell phones, the stories of police brutality are getting out.
Griffin did not suggest that a possible reason for the perceived racism from police officers receiving so much attention in recent history was due in part to having a president who has made suggestions of institutionalized racism many times throughout his presidency. A president who referred to his own white grandmother as a, “Typical white person.”
Griffin explained that the Ku Klux is no longer seen any more because they have picked up badges to beat up Black people legally. He also alleged that he had been a victim of a racist attack from at least one officer who targeted him because of his race. When asked about the circumstances leading up to the situation, Griffin simply said that it was because he was black. There is no record of this allegation because Griffin said that he felt it would be a waste of time to file a complaint.
