The Don is at it again. He's back on Twitter ranting and raving and this time he's got his sights on rapper Mac Miller.
Ironically, the business tycoon is looking the cash in on the song that bares his name. The now certified-gold Mac Miller single "Donald Trump". The song is almost three years old and all of a sudden, Donald Trump is not only offended, he wants to cash in on the songs success.
Funny how things change because when the song first came out, Trump seem flattered and took to Twitter to give his opinion tweeting, " A lot of people are calling me about the Mac Miller rap song. Now, it's named 'Donald Trump.' Maybe you should pay me a lot of money, but it just did over 20 million people, turning into Mac Miller. So in one way, I'm proud of him. I haven't actually seen the language, it's a little hard to understand on the song itself. Probably, it's not the cleanest language you've ever heard, but this kid is the new Eminem. Everybody says he's fantastic."

Today, because of that hope, hard and painstaking labor of Americans sung and unsung, we live in a moments when the dreams of equality and opportunity for people of every color and creed will be realized. The month of February however, is National African American History Month . It’s a time to tell those stories of freedom won and honor the individuals who paved the way. We look back to those men and women who helped raise the pillars of democracy in most cases literally do to pain staking forced human labor. We honor them for their decency, countless inventions, agricultural and architectural contributions and love of country, even when the halls they built were not theirs to occupy. This month, we will trace generations of African-Americans, free and slave, who risked everything to realize their God-given rights.
What is Black History Month and why is it a holiday?
Black History Month started in 1926 here in the U.S., when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced the second week of February would be "Negro History Week". This week was chosen because it marked the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Negro History Week was met with enthusiastic response and basically prompted the creation of black history clubs, and a increased interest among teachers, and progressive whites.
In 1976, the federal government acknowledged the expansion of Black History Week to Black History Month by the leaders of the Black United Students at Kent State University in February of 1969. The first celebration of Black History Month occurred at Kent State in February of 1970 and six years later Black History Month was recognized by the U.S. government. President Gerald Ford said in recognition of the holiday that all Americans should "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history."
Today in black history:
Upon the passage of the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which formally ended slavery, abolitionist lawyer John Swett Rock became the first African-American admitted to the bar of the United States Supreme Court on Feb. 1, 1865.
Rock was born free on October 13, 1825, in Salem, New Jersey. He was also an educator and later studied dentistry, graduating from the American Medical College in Philadelphia in 1852. He set up a practice in Boston, where many of his patients were escaped slaves fleeing to Canada through the Underground Railroad.
An outspoken abolitionist in Boston, Rock switched his focus to law and was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1861. He served the U.S. Supreme Court for just one year before health problems derailed his career. On Dec. 3, 1866, at age 41, he died from tuberculosis.
