So, if the man who was pointed out as being Donalds African American is not offended by the statement, then why are we allowed to be offended by the statement? Maybe we are just too easily offended.

After the rally ended, Trump went to greet supporters, starting on the southern side and working toward the north.

“I was at the point he was about to leave and I called out, ‘Uncle Donald, Uncle Donald,’” Cheadle said. “He recognized me as the guy he had called out.”

The two men exchanged a few words and Trump explained himself.

“You know what I was talking about? Jobs, jobs, jobs,” Cheadle said, paraphrasing what Trump told him. “I said, ‘Yeah, jobs.’ It’s all a fog. I’m glad I’m not on the witness stand. But it means a lot to me when a person of his stature can come to Redding.”

Cheadle was holding two Trump placards, one belonging to him and the other two a young woman who had been standing next to him. Trump signed the two, Cheadle said.

What does one expect him to say?

The whole speech was ridiculous.

Before Trump got to "my African American over there", he lied about the fact that he was encouraging violence against protesters.
"Be very very nice".

Really Trump?

I doubt that authoritarian Trump is sincerely reversing course.

Is it too much to ask businessman turned politician to be honest?

Liberals and SJWs dont care what you think is offensive; theyll tell you when and how to be offended, and if you refuse, you are bigot and a racist and other mean words just like the original speaker of the offence, and are more than likely going to be targeted by violence and hatred to bring you in line with their progressive thinking.

This black guy better be careful... he doesnt fit the liberal narrative of how blacks should act or respond to perceived slights, so he may become a target himself of violence and hate from those who disagree with his non-outrage.

I called out, ‘Uncle Donald, Uncle Donald,’” Cheadle said.


"Uncle Donald," seriously?

Wow, he's acting in the black-white narrative himself, it seems.

Regardless of whether this man (who may support Trump) was offended or not, I'd wager others were.

I thought we already established where the violence was coming from. It isnt from Trumps camp. And at least his speech without a teleprompter made more sense than Obama's Okie Dokie speech without a teleprompter.

Trump said "MY African Amreican". Like he owned him. Like he was a pet, like he was property. "MY African American"
When Colbert used to refer to a picture of him with a black man and say 'this is my black friend' he was making a joke about people who have tokens in their life, a token black a token Asian, a token anyone, he was joking. But Trump was not joking. He was pointing out this man and was using his presence as a token example of his black support. Clear as a bell. That this man did not react with scorn demonstrates the thickness of Trump supporters "MY African Amreican" indeed.

What? We don't "allow" people to be offended. If you're offended, you are and it's your business. I can't figure out why people get offended at what OTHER people are offended about.

It's insanity!

Whether the person was offended or not has NO BEARING on people being offended by Trump and what he said.

Exactly! I don't CARE if you're offended or not. Why should I?

No, "we" didnt.

Yes the Left has been very disruptive and violent at times.

But Trump's pro-violence rhetoric only helped to inflame the situation.

Absolutely unacceptable from a potential leader.

I think a Trump Presidency would actually be more divisive than Obama's and I didnt think that was possible.

Obviously Trump supporters are racist... but not the violent protestors.

Commenting doesn't equal offended. Talk about trying to control speech.

I don't know who you're talking about. I'm RARELY offended. And I'm certainly not offended by any of the crap that spills out of Trump's hole.

Liberals get upset if you don't get offended at the slightest thing these days. If you are a minority or female you have even more pressure to 'be offended' by whatever the agenda of the day is for these fools.

Just live your life and ignore the liberal bluster.

Gregory Cheadle took no offense when on Friday during a rally, Donald Trump singled him out and asked, “Look at my African-American over here!”

At the Friday rally, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was in the middle of describing a past campaign event, at which he said a black supporter “slugged” protesters who were dressed in a “Ku Klux Klan outfit.”


So we have Trump probably not making any "offensive" comments, and we have the MSM manufactured "victim" not being offended.

What else could be wrong?

Armchair critics.

They have nothing of substance so they have to focus on each word and tear it apart.

There have been a couple but certainly not to the extent of the people protesting Trump. People are becoming violent at almost every protest against him now and only furthering his points. People car out when told they are wrong. Even toddlers know it's not okay to hit people just because of a disagreement.

Who's offended?

Most of the whining is from wingnuts and Trump supporters.

Are you offended that Mr. Trump tokenized one of his supporters?
