We Stan A Black Finesse Queen With A Heart - The Howard Student Who Swindled Republicans Clears Up Everything

A Howard student pulled one of the biggest scams in 2018 when she seemingly swindled Republicans out of thousands of dollars. Or so we thought. She's now clearing the air. Find out the latest inside...

We stan a good finesse at the expense of racist conservatives. But, this story may not be all that it was initially reported.

A Howard University student used Twitter to get her personal opinion about Republicans across in the most epic way possible.

The black scam queen, who dubbed herself "Reformed Republican" on Twitter, posted a picture of herself wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat as she proudly announced she would no longer hide her Republican pride.

"I will not hide any longer,, the left has made us feel as if us black republicans should hide!! but not anymore!! #BlacksForTrump #WalkAway #maga," she tweeted.


Other fellow conservatives began praising her "reformed choice" (because y'all know they love a token black) and then she revealed her parents refused to pay her tuition. That's when she asked her fellow conservatives to lend a helping hand:



She followed up sharing screenshots of a conversation she had with her mother where her mother tells her she's no longer supporting her due to her new political stance:



A GoFundMe account was created where she begged MAGA supporters to donate money to help her pay for school. The GoFundMe has since been deleted, but folks were sharing the rumor that she swindled nearly $150,000 out of Republicans. Hours later, the Howard University student revealed she was just trolling to prove a point:





Turns out, she didn't raise anything near $150K.

The college student, who goes by Quran, spoke with New York Magazine to clear up everything. She revealed she only raised about $200 to begin with and that she refunded all of the donated funds, so she actually didn't make any money.

“I just felt really weird about taking their money,” the art history major said. Quran added she was overwhelmed by the attention and decided, “This could go south really fast. I just decided to refund everyone and give their money back. I think it was like maybe $200 at that point.”



“I just honestly didn’t want to take their money. Yeah, I can’t pay for school but I don’t want Republican money to pay for it,” she laughed. “I just want everyone to think I’m the finesse queen, which I am.”

No lies told there.  And we still STAN.

Here's how she came up with the idea:

Quran is taking the semester off from Howard, an HBCU where she studies art history, but she had returned to the school to visit her friends for homecoming. It was there that she found the MAGA hat, an odd find on campus, and decided to take a picture with it to make fun of other black people who had #walkedaway, so to speak. She says she just wanted to troll and get into Twitter fights, but instead, “It was just straight Republicans all in the comments who were so proud of me. It was weird. It was very unnerving.”



Literally the scam of the year.

“Voting is coming up so I just wanted to remind people that Republicans are stupid and shouldn’t hold the majority anymore," she said. “Minimum wage is pathetically low and it’s not a living wage either so how are we supposed to survive? And then the people who say 'go to college and get a better job' like anyone can afford that, and it won’t guarantee you a job either.”

Someone give this girl a medal! Or, donate to her new GoFundMe.



And if you want to donate funds towards her tuition so she can get back in class, you can do so here:


Be sure to get out and vote in today's midterm elections!
