Twitter leftists attacked NFL great Herschel Walker with the racist slur “Uncle Tom” because he endorsed President Trump at the Republican National Convention.
The racist taunt has been trending continuously on Twitter since Walker spoke last night.

Walker, 58, has been friends with Trump for 37 years. That’s more than half his life.
Herschel said he’s proud to be President Trump’s longtime friend and urged all Americans to reelect him for a brighter future instead of the dystopian nightmare Joe Biden would usher in.
“If you love America and want to make it better, Donald Trump is your president,” Herschel said. “He’s my president and I’m blessed to call him my friend.”
Walker said leftists who attack Trump only judge him by his gruff exterior. The true character of a man is revealed by what he does when no one’s watching, and in how he treats people who can’t do anything for him.
“I watched him treat janitors, security guards and waiters the same way he treats a VIP, ” Walker recalled. “He made them feel special because he knew they were. He understands that they are the people who make this country run. They clean, they cook, they build, they drive, they deliver. He told me, ‘Herschel, make an effort to get to know people. Remember their names.’ That stuck with me.”
Walker said over the years, he has seen firsthand what a caring father President Trump is.
“He can be in the middle of a big meeting, but if one of his kids was on the phone, he dropped everything to take the call,” Herschel recounted. “He taught me that family should be your top priority.”
Herschel recalled: “One time I planned to take his kids to Disney World with my family. At the last minute, Donald said he’d like to join us. So there he was in a business suit on ‘It’s a Small World’ ride. That was something to see. It just shows you what a caring, loving father he is.”
Walker said he gets enraged by Democrats and their media minions who smear President Trump as a racist, because it’s a false narrative:
“It hurts my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald. The worst one is racist. I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist.
People who think that don’t know what they’re talking about. Growing up in the Deep South, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump.”
Walker continued: “Just because someone loves and respects the flag, our national anthem, and our country doesn’t mean they don’t care about social justice. I care about all of those things. So does Donald Trump. He shows how much he cares about social justice in the black community through his ACTIONS. And his actions speaks louder than stickers or slogans.”

Walker then praised President Trump’s relentless work ethic:
“He keeps on fighting to improve the lives of black Americans and all Americans. He works night and day. He leaves nothing on the field.
I pray every night that God gives him more time, gives him four more years.
He has accomplished so much almost all by himself under constant attack, but there’s still more work to be done. If you love America and want to make it better, Donald Trump is your president.”
The RNC is showcasing numerous prominent black Americans who support President Trump. Not only does this undermine the Left’s howls that Trump is racist, but it spotlights that Democrats shouldn’t arrogantly assume that they own the black vote.
In addition to Herschel Walker, the RNC will feature:
- Democrat Vernon Jones, member of the Georgia House of Representatives.
- Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina
- Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, HUD Secretary
- Superbowl champ and congressional candidate Burgess Owens
- Alice Johnson, a grandma pardoned by Trump. She was serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense.
- Ja’Ron Smith, Trump public-policy assistant.
- Baltimore congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik
- Ann Dorn, the widow of police captain David Dorn, who was murdered by leftist rioters.
