On CNN’s Don Lemon Tonight, Marc Lamont Hill exchanged words with Bruce Levell over Trump using black celebrities to gain Black America’s trust.

It was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo op for Donald Trump’s exploitative campaign against black people.” Hill says to Levell.

In Hill’s defense, he was making a distinction between the black celebrities Trump parades in front of the cameras like a comedian, an athlete, and a rapper, as opposed to much more qualified analysts like Michael Eric Dyson and Cornel West, who can REALLY challenge Trump’s views.
