CNN: Martin Luther King’s Niece Alveda is a “Token Black”…

Alveda King is a distinguished speaker, an author, a bold pro-life advocate, and a civil rights activist.

Yet, to CNN commentator Keith Boykin, she is just a “token right-wing black woman.”

King is a vocal Trump supporter. In several cable news appearances, she has commended President Trump for his “compassion” and “brilliance,” while crediting him with helping to progress civil rights.

Shame on her, according to liberals. Had she simply saved her praise for Hillary Clinton instead of Trump, she would be a hero instead of a disgrace.

King is not the first African-American to be targeted by liberals for simply associating him or herself with President Trump. Steve Harvey, Ray Lewis and Kanye West were just a few notable figures who stopped by Trump Tower during the White House transition period this winter to be spurned.

“We’re gonna team up and see if we can bring about some positive change in the inner cities, which I felt was my only agenda, and he agreed,” Harvey said at the time. “And he wants to do something, and he realized that he needs some allies in that department, and he seemed really sincere about it.”

Harvey’s explanation wasn’t enough to protect him from liberal smears. He, Lewis, and Kanye are entertainers, critics pointed out, meaning Trump just wanted a photo op. If the president-elect truly wanted to enact meaningful change, he would have invited some black lawmakers and academics, according to comedian D.L. Hughley.

CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill took it a step further, calling Trump’s visitors “mediocre negroes.”

Why are these liberal commentators not being condemned for their intolerant and racist comments?
