“A conservative means you’re in favor of the status quo, and the status quo is keeping the White superiority complex in power. I’m not for that. I am an independent, an independent thinking person.”
– Gregory Cheadle, former California congressional candidate, on why he exited the Republican Party last year.
Cheadle is the man Donald Trump referred to as “my African-American friend” at a campaign rally in 2016. In his interview on CNN, Cheadle bluntly described his choice between the Democratic and Republican Parties: “You’re asking me to choose between projectile vomit and diarrhea.” He later added, “If I vote for Biden, it’ll probably be because I’m voting for Harris.”
