The Strange Story of the Black Man Standing Behind Trump at Phoenix Rally

Diane Ravitch's blog

I watched the beginning of Trump’s speech in Phoenix last night. Standing behind him was a tall black man holding a sign that read “Blacks for Trump.” I didn’t think much about it, other than to wonder why there would be women holding signs that read “Women for Trump.” At least, he no longer has anyone holding up an “LGBTQ for Trump sign.”

But the Washington Post went to the website of the black man standing behind the POTUS.

It is a curious story indeed.

He calls himself “Michael, the Black Man.”

The radical fringe activist from Miami once belonged to a violent black supremacist religious cult, and he runs a handful of amateur, unintelligible conspiracy websites. He has called Barack Obama “The Beast” and Hillary Clinton a Ku Klux Klan member. Oprah Winfrey, he says, is the devil.

And he loves Donald Trump.

Truth is stranger than fiction.
