Chrisette Michelle Steve Harvey Travis Greene, is your need to have access to Donald Trump’s A-List of friends worth the potential loss of thousands of fans, relationships with fellow colleagues? Yes you will receive great exposure over the next few days and possibly four years if you are lucky enough to kiss his butt and not get fired- as his favorite black faces in the areas of radio/tv/R&B and Gospel industry, but what happens after his rich white friends get tired of you or really choose not to like “Your” type of music or people, what happens after that? Not to mention the backlash you are receiving now. My question to you three is: Is it worth it?
Clearly, I am sure you thought long and hard about the backlash you would receive as a result of accepting and engagement that 99.9% of your colleagues not alone more than 50% of congressman are boycotting, yet, for some reason you think we should believe that your intention for meetings and performances is going to somehow make a difference in our community, Chile pleeze!
I was most appalled by Chrisette Michele’s open letter posted on social media saying she was representing us, again, Chile Pleeze:
Here’s the full letter:
“My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us. I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain. This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us.
Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind “These Stones”, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless. I am here. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters,”. I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.”
– Chrisette Michele
Question: Where were you Michele for the past 18 months or 8 years for that matter, were you representing us then? Come on now, let’s keep it real, you canceled a gig for a bigger gig, point blank period!
What you did not know at the time you decided to hang with Mr. Trump and while you were soul searching was that Spike Lee was going to allow you to “Represent Us” and pass you by on his upcoming project:
Now let’s talk about Steve Harvey
Did you not reflect on what happened to Tavis Smiley and Cornel West eight years ago, what in the world made you think that it would be ok if you sat down to have a conversation then turn around and tweet that it was Great and that you would do it anytime.

The backlash against Steve is so real Change.org has a petition out on him to take remove him from radio, Steve Harvey was it worth it? Sure you will be able to continue your work and take care of your foundation, but what about the country as a whole Steve. You of all people understand the importance of “Together we Stand, divided we Fall”!
And last but not least, Travis Greene, and green you are, Chile, I don’t know what Spiritual Advisor you consulted with but I pray you enjoy your 15 mins. or four years of fame with Donald Trump because it’s going to be hard for you to get bookings, trust me it’s going to be “Intentional” that people pass you bye.
