Diamond and Silk are a pair of uneducated fools. I’ve written about them several times, and I’m loath to do it again. But this is one of the dumbest things they’ve ever said. (And they’ve said a lot of stupid stuff.) The real crime is that these two monumental ignoramuses were ever given a national platform! How? They’re thousands of educated black people out there, and Trump and the right-wing media decided to elevate this pair who have never opened a thesaurus.
