ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith delivered a commentary on the black community attacking black leaders for meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.  Smith believes that it is counterproductive to call and label people who meet with Donald Trump as “sellouts.”  Smith called on other prominent black leaders to meet with Trump instead of bashing those who do.
