“Freed From White House Plantation”: Is Black America Buying What Omarosa Is Selling?
by G. Brown
It’s a fall from grace that is as graceless as they come. Omarosa Manigault Newman has gone from the top back to clawing her way up. Her highly publicized (and much ridiculed) December firing from the White House was feasted upon for a few days by an ever voracious news cycle. The woman who spent years singing the virtues of Donald Trump is still singing about him, but now she’s singing like a canary.
Since leaving the White House and moving into CBS’ Celebrity Big Brother House, Omarosa has audiences tuning in to hear what secrets she’ll spill next about her year as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison . Since joining the reality show, Omarosa has dropped some big bombs. When asked if she would ever vote for Trump again, she responded, “God, no. Never. Not in a million years, never.”

In her latest bombshell, Omarosa compares her unceremonious ousting from Trump’s White House to being set free from a plantation. Omarosa “I’m inside trying to fight for my own political life while I’m going into meetings with people who are ignoring me. Because I was black, people wouldn’t even talk to me.”
Her latest revelations are a complete 180 from the woman who once referred to Trump as her friend. The ordained minister often spoke of Trump as if he were some type of deity and advised others to worship him once saying, “Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, whoever disagreed, whoever challenged him — it is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
But now she’s the one disagreeing with him and challenging him, so the question becomes ‘was Omarosa telling the truth then or is she telling the truth now?’
It’s hard to put faith in either version of her Trump stories. Before she had nothing but accolades because she was a woman trying to get a job in the Trump administration. Now she’s a woman spitting venomous, juicy gossip because she’s a woman trying to sell a tell-all book she says is on the way.
When she was trying to sell the Black community on supporting Trump he was their savior, now he’s the anti-Christ who treated her like a slave. Omarosa says her allegiance was to the country and not to Trump ,but even that is hard to believe. Believe this, Omarosa’s allegiance is to Omarosa. Can’t be mad at that, she’s trying to survive like everyone else. But I can take issue with Omarosa trying to forge some bond with the Black community, the same Black community you tried to sell out and sucker into supporting him. Even though most Blacks saw Trump for what he truly is, you tried to convince them they didn’t know him like you did. Blacks saw through that sales pitch and can see through this one. Keep spilling all the tea you wish Omarosa, but it must be Kool-aid flavored because a lot of Blacks aren’t drinking.
