Black former-NFL star Jack Brewer said 'I am a lifelong Democrat but I back Donald Trump!'

Jack Brewer said he is ‘sick of how he (President Trump) is portrayed in the media!’

Brewer, 41, said “I’m Jack Brewer, a former three-time NFL team captain, college professor, coach, husband, son, and father. I’m also a lifelong Democrat, but I support Donald Trump.”

“I remember my dad’s bravery when he personally stood up against a KKK rally in my town. In my house, my father taught me to back down from no one. I know what racism looks like, I’ve seen it firsthand.”

Mr Brewer – who played 5 seasons in the NFL between 2002 and 2007 before starting his own investment firm – spoke of how poorly the media portray Trump and he himself calls Trump the ‘first black President.’

“In America, it has no resemblance to president Trump and I’m fed up with the way he’s portrayed in the media, who refuse to acknowledge what he’s actually done for the black community,” he said.

“It’s confusing the minds of our innocent children. Before I left to come deliver this message, my energetic eight year old son, Jackson, stopped me and said, “Dad, can you please just tell everyone that all lives need to matter and that God loves everyone?” In that moment, I realized that my eight year old had figured out what so many adults have seemed to forget; we are not as divided as our politics suggest.”

“At some point, for the sake of our children, the policies must take priority over the personalities. So because you have an issue with president Trump’s tone, you’re going to allow Biden and Harris to deny underserved black and brown children school of choice?”

“My fellow Americans, our families need each other. We need black fathers in the homes with their wives and children. The future of our communities depend on it. I’m blessed to be able to run inner city youth programs and to also teach in prisons across America. The inmates in my federal prison program literally receive days off their sentence just for attending my class.”

“And that’s thanks to president Donald Trump in his first step back. President Trump cared about these Americans and their families, even when so many others had left them behind and had written them off. I’m forever grateful for president Trump for that.”

Brewer first met Mr Trump on a golf course last year and said that ‘Trump will cause a black awakening amongst the community.’

Brewer had been a supporter of Obama but turned his back on the Democratic party.

“The President endures relentless attacks, and so do many of us like myself who support him. But my momma always told me, when the Lord starts blessing, the devil starts missing.

“Republicans are the party that freed the slaves and the party that put the first black men and women in congress. It’s the party of Frederick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln, and now, Tim Scott and Donald Trump.

“Our president has made incredible strides to end mass incarceration and give unprecedented opportunities for black in America to rise. America, let this election be a call for all God’s people who are called by his name to humble ourselves and pray together, and to seek his face and to turn from our wicked ways.

“Then he will hear us from heaven and he will forgive our sins and he will heal our land. Amen, and God bless America.”

Brewers comments come just days after fellow African-American ‘1960 lunch-counter sit in’ civil rights activist Clarence Henderson said he also backs President Trump.

‘If you vote for Joe Biden you don’t know history’ Henderson said.
