There’s a rumour going around that President Donald Trump is being joined by very popular people, both who aren’t afraid of courting controversy themselves - to attend a Summit on Race.
Yes. If there ever were three vastly varied high-profiled people who were as equally different as they are famous it might well be Colin Kaepernick, Kanye West and Donald Trump.
It’s a right trio out of a reality show or a skit on Saturday Night Live.
Right now, it’s a rumour – but it is getting some traction online and in the media.
No one has commented officially apart from Cleveland-based pastor Darrell Scott, an outside adviser to President Trump. He seems to be leading the charge to make this a reality.
So, could this happen? Should this happen?
For Trump it would be a slam-dunk. For West it’s more promotion for an upcoming album. But for Kaepernick –is it an off-side considering his very credible efforts to confront discrimination?
Stranger things have happened. And in Donald Trump’s America the opportunity for surprises is ever-present.
