Black & Republican: 12 Celebrities That Are Down With The GOP

When you think of African-Americans who are affiliated with the Grand Old Party (GOP), political figures like Condoleezza Rice (former United States Secretary of State), Colin Powell (former United States Secretary of State), Herman Cain (2012 U.S. Republican Party presidential candidate), Ben Carson (2016 U.S. Republican Party presidential candidate), and Clarence Thomas (Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States) immediately come to mind.

Then of course there are the Republican pundits and political analysts like Armstrong Williams, Larry Elder, Amy Holmes, Juan Williams and Raynard Jackson.

But surprisingly—as we learned back in 2012 when we first compiled Black & Republican: 9 Celebrities Down With The GOP—many prominent Black celebrities, faith leaders and athletes are either registered Republicans and/or have publicly supported the GOP. Some celebrities featured on our 2012 list like LL Cool J have publicly clarified that they are registered as Independents and not either Republican or Democratic.

Now just because you’re a card-carrying Republican doesn’t mean you’re supporting Donald Trump. Even reality TV star and Trump loyalist Omarosa Manigault is a former Democrat who is now registered as an Independent. But for those who do identify as Republican, it does mean that you primarily vote for issues and platforms that embody conservatism.

With an election to determine the 45th President of the United States coming in November, there’s no better time than now to take a look at some prominent Black personalities who are down with the GOP.[divider]
