Black Americans aren't buying Omarosa's turn against Trump

For years, Omarosa Manigault Newman stood at Donald Trump's side, making her deeply unpopular with African-Americans who see her as a sellout for aligning herself with a president who has hurled one insult after another at black people. Many condemned the president and his repeated attempts to compare minorities with animals, but there was little defense of Manigault Newman — unlike when Trump attacked NBA superstar LeBron James in recent weeks. Raynard Jackson, a black Republican who has worked on GOP presidential, gubernatorial and local campaigns, said Manigault Newman secretly recording Trump and other White House officials will make her a pariah in conservative circles as well.

Wu's fight for 'Crazy Rich Asians' part of a bigger crusade

"Crazy Rich Asians" would be the first studio-made Asian-American movie in 25 years, and Wu, who has established herself as a crusader for Asian-American representation in Hollywood, would have to sit this historic moment out. But then, feeling "kind of dramatic," and thinking about the significance of the project to her and untold number of Asian-Americans who make it a point to tell her their stories because of her tweets and "Fresh Off the Boat," Wu decided to give it one last shot and composed an email to "Crazy Rich Asians" director Jon M. Chu. Based the first book in author Kevin Kwan's popular trilogy, Wu's character Rachel Chu is a middle-class economics professor from the U.

The audience at Trump rallies is primarily white, and so it is for Fox: on average, its prime-time audience this year is 91 percent white and non-Hispanic, the Nielsen company said.
