        You know what is sad he have a good message and got a lil fame off the slogan. Seen no bag coming his way for that issue. I rather fortune that fame. Why people of color do not focus on the issue instead of fame.

                        yeah he's a fraud. i worked with him on his campaign and he wasnt even trying to pay his canvassers. took us a half a year just to get paid for one week worth of work. he has no real media presence and expected to win based off that time he was on SNL. He lives with his landlord for free but his rent is still too dam high. he may be preaching true shit but he's doesnt stay true to his word. Me and 4 other canvassers had to pay rent ourselves and he knew that but he deliberately kept messing up our checks and and not putting the right money order thru. wasted our time and our effort to help this guy. please dont buy into his bullshit.
