CNN Commentator Calls MLK Niece Dr. Alveda King A ‘Token Black Woman’

Dr. Alveda King is the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For a CNN commentator to smear her in this way is not only unfair, it’s also a tremendous insult to King’s legacy. It’s also amazing that someone who works for CNN would be comfortable saying something so racist.

CNN Commentator Calls MLK Jr’s Niece a ‘Token Black Woman’

Alveda King is a distinguished speaker, an author, a bold pro-life advocate, and a civil rights activist.

Yet, to CNN commentator Keith Boykin, she is just a “token right-wing black woman.”

King is a vocal Trump supporter. In several cable news appearances, she has commended President Trump for his “compassion” and “brilliance,” while crediting him with helping to progress civil rights.

Shame on her, according to liberals. Had she simply saved her praise for Hillary Clinton instead of Trump, she would be a hero instead of a disgrace.

King is not the first African-American to be targeted by liberals for simply associating him or herself with President Trump. Steve Harvey, Ray Lewis and Kanye West were just a few notable figures who stopped by Trump Tower during the White House transition period this winter to be spurned.
