Former NFL Player: Racism in America 'Has No Resemblance to President Trump'
Jack Brewer set the record straight , blasts media smear campaigns
Former NFL player Jack Brewer set the record straight on racism in America during the Republican National Convention.
Brewer praised President Donald Trump's record on race and condemned the left-wing media for trying to smear him as a racist.
The former NFL player recalled his experience as a black man growing up in Texas.
“I remember my dad’s bravery when he personally stood up against a KKK rally in my town,” he said.
“I know what racism looks like," Brewer said.
"I’ve seen it firsthand in America. It has no resemblance to President Trump.”
Brewer blasted the media for their coverage of Trump and trying to label him as a racist.
“I’m fed up with the way he’s portrayed in the media, who refuse to acknowledge what he’s actually done in the black community,” Brewer continued.
“It’s confusing the minds of our innocent children.”
Brewer blasted the media for pushing a debunked talking point that the President called neo-Nazis “very fine people," a false claim Joe Biden brought up during his speech at last week's Democratic National Convention.
“Are you going to allow the media to lie to you by falsely claiming he said there are very fine white supremacists in Charlottesville? He didn’t say that. It’s a lie.”
Brewer’s speech was widely applauded by those on social media.
“The GOP outreach to African-Americans is so welcome,” former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer tweeted.
“I love these speeches. Jack Brewer was fantastic. It’s essential that the GOP take its message to minorities. It’s good for the USA, and it will terrify Ds — since all they offer is fear.”
