Why do Republicans Think Don King's Endorsement Matters to African Americans?

Posted: Updated:

I have been wondering about this since 2004. Who are the black people that look to Don King for political advice?

This is not my joke but this was too funny not to let others know about it.

This morning, my favorite morning comedian, Huggy Lowdown ripped Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Michael Steele apart for his recent endorsements by Boxing Promoter Don King and (very) former Heavyweight Boxing Champ Mike Tyson.

"The Republicans know black people hate George W. Bush so much that Michael Steele would rather (be endorsed by) a convicted murderer and a convicted rapist than President Bush."
