Black is beautiful, as long as you're a Trump supporter

Black is beautiful, as long as you're a Trump supporter
- A recent story in right-leaning Newsmax listing the 50 most influential African-American Republicans seems to put great importance on the relationship and level of support for President Donald Trump.
That may be why Utah Republican Party Chairman James Evans is on the list and Rep. Mia Love is not.
In fact, Love's absence from the list is mystifying, given that she is the first black Republican woman ever elected to Congress and spoke at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
But Love did not support Trump when he was running for president.
While Utah's convention delegation went for Ted Cruz over Trump and even participated in a maneuver to wrest the GOP nomination away from him, Evans made it clear that if Cruz dropped out, Trump was their man.
Newsmax founder Christopher Ruddy is a close friend and staunch defender of Trump.
Other African-American notables left off the list were former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell — both associated with the Bush family.
No. 1 on the list is Ben Carson, who is Trump's secretary of housing and urban development. No. 2 is Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
