Janelle Monáe, singer and “Hidden Figures” star, tweeted: “F**k Donald Tromp [sic] and every American citizen, celebrity, white woman, black man, ETC who supported him burnnnnnnnnnn.”
Despite Monáe’s outrage, minority support for President Trump was significant in the 2020 election. 55 percent of Florida’s Cuban-American vote went to Trump, according to NBC News exit polls. 30 percent of Puerto Ricans and 48 percent of “other Latinos” also backed Trump.
In addition, Al Sharpton recently admitted that Trump successfully appealed to entrepreneurial ideals in minority communities.
“He has done better than, in my judgment, he should have with Black men and Hispanics,” Sharpton said, “which means that we’ve got to really look in the civil rights community, both on the Latino and the African American side, on a real conversation in our communities on what it is to be different in terms of being entrepreneurial aspirants and being fair in terms of how we look from the whole.”
Unfortunately, Janelle Monáe’s comments are just one of many in the liberal culture surrounding Hollywood. “Tolerant” leftists support those who think the same way that they do, and they rudely attack anyone who does not.
Regardless of the outcome of this election, we as Americans have a duty to be civil to each other. The First Amendment protects our freedom of expression, and that is something we cannot risk losing.
