Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s black former girlfriend has been identified as Deneeta Pope, the Daily Mail reports. Hurrah, Mitt Romney will now get more black votes. Not. Deneeta Pope is a Barack Obama supporter. She was a cheerleader while he was in a fraternity at Miami University in Ohio.
The relationship and the backlash he suffered from his so-called friends were a formative experience in the political evolution of the Republican vice-presidential pick who described himself as a ‘big, big fan’ of Martin Luther King and is a staunch advocate of civil rights.
Neither of them gave up their love of sports. Ryan has become synonymous with the oddly titled P90X workout programme, while Pope featured in an online video for The Wall Street Journal in 2010 promoting a full-body workout called the Bar Method. Source
Wow, if Paul Ryan went through all this, then I would think he would be more inclined to reach out to the black community. This is proof that having a black or Asian girlfriend doesn’t make you more sensitive to the needs of that particular group. To be honest, Paul Ryan doesn’t embody a thing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. talked about, in terms of helping the poor and the least among us.
