 I got in. I got in I got in I got in I got in I GOT IN!!!!!!!

 

After five years of working towards my dream school, the light at the end of the tunnel is closer and brighter than it has ever been. I have been accepted into Howard University’s class of 2021. It’s a surreal feeling, to say the least. With every late-night study session, every volunteer hour and every extracurricular activity, despite my schedule being hectic, in the back of my head I always thought “Howard will make this all worth it”. Since eighth grade I’ve had this school in my sights, and now it’s only 7 months away from becoming a reality. Excitement is an understatement.

Especially with Donald Trump’s presidential election, being at Howard is even more important to me. While I will be down the street from him in D.C (yikes), I know that Howard will be just what I need during these next four years. No more hyper-conservative “All Lives/Blue Lives/ Not Black Lives Matter” people will I have to face. Instead I will be fed nothing but knowledge of the world around me, my people, and what I can do to change it for the better. It’s almost as if Howard, or any HBCU is the protective shield every young black American needs. Perfect timing, if you ask me.

I can’t thank enough people who got me to this place in my life. Mom and dad, you’ve been my motivation in more ways than one. Besides literally telling me I need to work on college essays and getting on me about my grades, your presence and success alone provided the example I needed to keep working hard. I love y’all. I also want to thank all my aunt’s and uncle’s and cousins and grandparents and friends of the family for helping me all of these years. Whether through example of your achievements, words of wisdom, or just positivity towards everyone around you, you have all been a huge part in how I’m here. Your help meant and still means so much to me and I’ll be sure to never let you guys down.

It feels weird sometimes, to be honest, when I think about the next chapter of my life. For four years I’ve been working on achieving this goal through school and my outside life. Now that the next step is moving closer and closer, it’s kind of strange to know that so much will change. My current routine, my habits and my norms will all be different, and I can’t lie it’s scary sometimes. However, I know that with a strong foundation behind me and a thirst to learn and grow, success and happiness is in the future. I just know it.

 

I just wanted to express how I’m feeling and give thanks the right way to all the people who’ve helped me get here. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. I’ll make sure to keep you updated as I go through my journey.

 

HU !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Why I Support Trump for President

Share Button

Yeah, you read it right.

 

I, Miles Ezeilo, wish Donald J Trump the best of luck in the upcoming elections. I know that this seems like something out of left field for me, considering what my usual stance is on things, but I stand by this one proudly. To many this probably sounds a little strange, even. But since I can’t vote in this upcoming  Presidential election (December birthday, sadly), I feel like I can at least voice my opinion here. And the reason isn’t very…straight-forward. Let me explain.

 

America deserves Donald Trump right now. With the current state of America, with greed and lies in the government while citizens are struggling everyday with no change, Donald Trump is the perfect President. With poverty still being a pressing problem at the same time the rich get richer, Donald Trump answers that call. With things like the Housing Market Crash still affecting people’s lives on a daily basis, while unnecessary wars are being paid for without fail, Donald Trump is the man. And with institutional racism, classism, and sexism becoming so common in society that we’ve become numb to it, that’s why Donald trump is the perfect candidate.

Everyday me and millions of people like me live with constant fear, having to err on the side of caution in order to protect our lives. Everyday women can do the same amount of work as a man, yet still get a smaller paycheck. Everyday more people are becoming unemployed, for it’s only so much Obama can do without the help of at least a few members of Congress. To me, this isn’t a place I’d like to raise a family, or even live my adult life in. America has become toxic, and the solution is Donald Trump.

 

The way I see it, America didn’t deserve Obama in 2008, and especially not for this long. President Obama has had to deal with so much after Bush, and has done a good job doing the most he can do. But even after all of this work, not only does he not get the accolades he deserves, but he’s ridiculed and assaulted daily by people who can’t see past his brown complexion. These are people who are supposed to be helping him, but sadly this is not the case. So as a result, America is a mess, but because Obama is doing all he can and making small victories, it doesn’t seem completely bad. If anything, Obama is the problem, right? No.

 

This is where Trump comes in.

 

With Donald Trump in office, all of the doors can fly open to reveal how broken this country really is. Donald Trump, the TV personality/ real-estate businessman, acts as a placeholder for the Presidential position. Because he has no political experience and obviously can’t lead the country, one simply can’t look at him to blame for America’s issues. The policies won’t be strong enough, the foreign affairs will be sloppy, and all of it will be done by the talking hairpiece known as Donald Trump. With Obama gone, all the people who hated him can finally look up and realize it wasn’t the black guys fault; it was the country he was trying to lead.  Hopefully after Trump does enough damage, politicians can wake up and try to solve some problems.

 

Now I know there’s other candidates other than Trump out there, so one could ask, why not just support someone else? I feel like while that sounds like a good idea, people will still have hate for a candidate like what Obama had to go through, and all that will do is give people another excuse for why America is bad instead of looking at America as the problem itself. America needs to do better than that. America needs a restart.

 

So yeah, if I were to vote for anybody this Presidential election, it would be Donald Trump. Not for his policies or his charisma or even his toothless smile, but simply as a strategic move to hopefully get America in a better place. As well as this, a perfect punishment  for targeting my people and trying to stop our success is having a clown as a President.

 

But hey, this is only my opinion. I do feel strongly about this, but I am more than open to be proven wrong, or simply hear a different viewpoint. Let me know by commenting below.

 

[NOTE: 4/11/16

Over the last couple of months, I’ve received many questions and concerns dealing with this post. Now although most of the points I still stand against, let me make this clear to everyone. This was a satirical piece, displaying a wild and unorthodox reason for voting for Donald Trump. If I had the chance to vote in the upcoming election, I definitely WOULDN’T vote for him. He would run this country into the ground before anything got better. I know this. So while I am happy that many people have opinions dealing with this topic, I feel like a lot of people took it in an unintended direction. Any publicity is good publicity, but I wanted to make things clear.]
