What do NFL stars Jim Brown and Ray Lewis, Family Feud host Steve Harvey, rapper Kanye West, megachurch pastor Darrell Scott, Dr. Ben Carson and Martin Luther King III have in common? They are all black. They have all met with (or worked with) President-elect Trump and spoken of their interaction positively. And they are apparently guilty of being "mediocre negroes" in the eyes of CNN-contributor and Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill.

Speaking about Trump's new "diversity coalition," Hill described them as "a bunch of mediocre negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump's exploitative campaign against black people."

And speaking of Steve Harvey, who recently met with Trump and said he would be working with Dr. Carson to help HUD, Hill opined, "My disagreement is the way in which [Steve Harvey is] being used by folk like Donald Trump. Again, his intention is just to have a seat at the table. But when you're at the table, you should have experts at the table. You should have people who can challenge the president at the table."

When Hill was castigated for this comment, he quickly claimed he wasn't talking about Jim Brown, the NFL legend who stood side by side with Muhammad Ali for years, or of Steve Harvey, or even of Ben Caron, whom he described as a "mediocre choice for HUD" but an "extraordinary human." Instead, he stated that he "referred to the Trump Diversity Council," of which neither Brown nor Harvey were a part. read more
