Notice how the CNN story is about how Facebook screwed up. :lol:

It's a wonderful feel good story. Leftys lost some of their scant money they might have spent on hemp or "Save the Whales" stickers....and the money didn't go to a Leftist cause. :lol:

Trump pardons late black boxing champion Jack Johnson

Reuters Staff

2 MIN READ

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday issued a posthumous pardon to boxer Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight champion, who was jailed a century ago due to his relationship with a white woman.

“I believe Jack Johnson is a worthy person to receive a pardon, to correct a wrong in our history,” Trump said.

In a case that came to symbolize racial injustice, Johnson was arrested in 1912 with Lucille Cameron, who later became his wife, for violating the Mann Act. The law was passed two years earlier and made it a crime to take a woman across state lines for immoral purposes.

Johnson died in 1946.

In signing the pardon, the president cited “tremendous racial tension” during the time Johnson was champion. “He really represented something that was both very beautiful and very terrible at the same time,” Trump said.

Actor Sylvester Stallone, famous as the star of the “Rocky” boxing-movie franchise, and former world heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis flanked Trump for the pardon in the Oval Office. In April, Trump tweeted that he was considering the pardon after talking to Stallone.

Earlier on Thursday, Stallone posted a photo of himself at the White House on Instagram with the caption “Waiting for the moment to go into the oval office for the pardon...”

In the Oval Office, Trump said of Stallone: “I love his movies.”

“This has been a long time coming,” Stallone said, adding that Johnson served as the inspiration for the character of Apollo Creed in the Rocky movies.

Several photos at above linked article.

Jack Johnson could have been pardoned by the first "black" president (Bill Clinton).
He could have been pardoned by President Obama.

But neither of them did it.

Trump did.

So now the question is: "How can the left/SJWs/BLM spin this to make out that Trump is a racist?"

The dude is long dead, so they can spin it as: "If Trump REALLY cared about racial injustice he'd pardon all the gangbangers, rapists, arsonist, murderers, and child molester Negroes who are in jail RIGHT NOW! All 745,000 of them!

If they can't spin bad stuff about POTUS, I've noticed they quickly rush it into a dark corner you can't find unless you actively search for it, or don't mention it at all.

Jack Johnson was one of the best defensive boxers of all time, he delighted in toying with his opponents and didn't give a fuck about the social conventions of the time. A true deplorable. ;)

That is cool. Not reported here at all. First time I heard of it.
