Move over, Al Sharpton. There’s a new — more conservative — reverend on the political scene.
“We don’t have a black advocate on the right,” said Dr. Darrell
Scott, the Cleveland pastor who is a member of Donald Trump’s transition
team. “Think about it: Jesse Jackson — he’s a dinosaur now. Al Sharpton
— he’s all the way left. All the black activism and all the black
advocacy is on the left.
“But I’ve got the [next] president’s ear now.”
Scott, 58, was among the clutch of prominent black figures, including
NFL legends Ray Lewis and Jim Brown, “Apprentice” Season 1 contestant
Omarosa Manigault, and Kanye West, who met with Trump in Manhattan on Tuesday.
On the agenda: “Black people, black stuff,” said Scott, who sits on Trump’s National Diversity Coalition.
