When you do not blend in with a subset’s idea of homogeneity, you would probably wind up being rejected by the group. The lesson in group dynamics brought the idealistic notions of a black Donald Trump supporter crashing back to earth on Wednesday.
C. J. Cary, a black Trump supporter was thrown out of a campaign rally after he was accused of being a protester, sent to create mischief by the Clinton campaign.
63-year-old Cary , a long time supporter of the Donald, was just another enthusiastic supporter who attended the rally in Kinston, North Carolina on Wednesday, until his chosen candidate asked security to move in and have him removed.
A local paper, the News Observer reported that Trump was mid-speech when the crowd began booing, waving their Trump Pence signs and pointing at Cary. Initially the Republican presidential candidate told the crowd: ‘That’s all right, leave him alone’ . However as the crescendo rose, reacting to the mood he swiftly changed his mind.
‘We have a protester,’ Trump declared.
‘By the way, were you paid $1,500 to be a thug?’ he asked, scanning the crowd. ‘Where’s the protester? Where is he? Was he paid?’
‘You can get him out, Trump said, addressing his security. ‘Get him out.’
Cary was then escorted from the event by security as the audience cheered.
Trump has previously accused Clinton’s campaign of paying protesters to disrupt his rallies. turned to the ‘protester’ and asked if he was paid by Clinton to be a ‘thug’. Problem is, Cary was not a protester. He has long fan of the real estate mogul, even before his foray into GOP politics.
As a matter of fact Cary told News Observer
he views the ‘presidential race as a choice between two apples: one rotten apple and one that is sour and bitter. He views Trump as the sour one, and supports him because he said Trump has some redemptive qualities’.
The former Marine claims to have been corresponding with the real estate mogul since 1992, when Trump replied to Cary’s letter during his first divorce.
Cary, wearing sunglasses and a suit jacket at the rally, was just 20ft. from the stage, shouting ‘Donald! and waving another his letter,said he had been hoping to give Trump, when he was escorted outside.

‘Everyone else is waving Trump signs and I’m waving this white letter,’ Cary told the Washington Post. He also thinks that he thinks his sunglasses – worn because of his sensitivity to light – may also have made people suspicious.
As he was led out, the security agent noticed that Cary was wearing a GOP badge.
He told Cary that while he wasn’t a protester, the crowd had turned against him and he should probably leave the rally. Cary was then escorted from the event by security as the audience cheered.

Cary says the miscommunication has not dampened his support from Trump
Cary said he was disappointed to have been ejected, but that wasn’t going to stop him from voting for Trump and he was able to pass on his letter to give to Trump.
That eight-page letter urged him to be more accepting of minorities before urging: ‘You must defeat lying Hillary and lying Obama. These characters are bad really bad.’
Cary says he has not yet heard back from the Trump campaign but a surrogate has reached out to him.

The 63-year-old said he was disappointed to have been ejected, but that wasn’t going to stop him from voting for Trump.
‘I was a little sad [that I was escorted out] but was more happy than sad because my purpose for being there was to give that document to Donald,’ Cary said. ‘My mission was to make sure I got it in the right hands, because someone could have just easily tossed it or dropped it.’
Cary, who has dozens of pro-Trump signs in his front yard, says he agrees with the candidate’s border policy and believes that he is ‘honest’.
‘You can work with an honest person and convince them their vision isn’t in the best interest of everyone,’ he told the Rocky Mount Telegram. You can’t work with dishonest people. That’s why I don’t like Obama — the worst president in American history.’
It was not the first time a Trump supporter, who looked like the ‘other’ has been ousted from one of his rallies.
From the onset of his campaign, he has been frequently accused of being racist. In August, Jake Anantha, a half-Indian student at Central Piedmont Community College, was ejected from a Trump rally in Charlotte,North Carolina.

Anantha believes he was racially profiled because he is half Indian.
A registered Republican from Charlotte, he was approached by security and told he resembled a known protester who had disrupted Trump events in the past.
“I still don’t know why I was asked to leave. But I think it has something to do with my race,” said Anantha.
“My mother is white and my father is Indian. When [Trump’s head of security Eddie] Deck saw me, I wonder whether he noticed that I look different from most Trump supporters. I wonder whether he assumed that I couldn’t possibly support Trump because of how I look.”
A disappointed Anantha was so shaken he told CNN he was now reconsidering his support for the GOP candidate after his remonstrations fell on deaf ears: ‘I told him [Eddie Deck ], I’ve never been to another rally in my life’. ‘I’m a huge Trump supporter. I would never protest against Trump.’
Anantha even said he was wearing not one, but two pro-Trump shirts at the time he was evicted from the rally.
‘I do think it’s because I’m brown,’ he added.
