Black & Republican: 9 Celebrities Down With The GOP

After being postponed a day due to Tropical Storm Isaac, the Republican National Convention is officially in full swing in Tampa, Florida.

A who’s who roster of Republican leaders and politicians will be giving speeches at the convention this week.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, House Speaker John Boehner, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Mitt Romney’s wife Ann Romney are among those speaking on Tuesday alone.

You may not see them at the RNC, but there are some Hollywood heavyweights that are registered Republicans and known conservatives according to the Federal Election Commission or by their own admission.

Take a look at some prominent African-American celebrities who are down with the GOP:


Rapper and actor LL Cool J

Comedienne and talk show host Sheryl Underwood

Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin

Actor and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Actor James Earl Jones

Retired NBA star Karl Malone

    It’s good that there are some so the GOP doesn’t ignore us or the DEMs take us for granted. Reagan & the first Bush weren’t bad but “Dubya” put us in a terrible recession as well as 2 wars, & it’ll be hard for ANYONE to get us out of all that,but at this time,looking at the EXTREME IGNORANT views of today’s GOP & the fact that GOP moderates, who favor compromises & bipartisan work for the good of the country can’t get a word in edgewise, I can’t see how any minority can vote for them. About 90% of my white friends, & ALL the blacks & Latinos at my job can’t stand today’s GOP & the local Obama campaign office is LOADED with them. But I guess being a rich celeb puts you in a different category

    Believe it or not there are a lot of black Republicans. Anxious to see how this year’s elections turn out. All I can say is if your candidate doesn’t win it’s your own fault. GET OUT AND VOTE!

    Who gives a damn? Really, who cares. These black folks are apart of the wealthy population in this country and cannot relate to working folks like myself.

    A respectable black person usually is a republican. You dont see gangster rappers or raunchy comedians on this list because they are POS’s.

      None Appeared with Mitt, true…However, LL Cool J appeared at several Rally’s for “W” and the Rock donated to the campaign of John Mc Cain. LL also was at W Bush’s Inauguration! Look up, you’ll find it.

    Most republican black act like they are “holy than thou”, self rightous, judgemental, and know it all and they things they judge others about, those black republicans do it themselves. That is what turns people off about them. I do not care if a person is republican or Demo just as long as they do what it right when it comes to issues. Colin Powell is the kind of Republican many blacks love to support.
