MEMO TO SENATOR CHRIS COONS, Democrat of Delaware.
I heard you say on TV tonight how appalled you were when you heard the crowd say last night, "Lock him up" directed at donald trump as they also booed donald trump. I am sick and tired of you White folks, who say the office of the President should be respected, at all costs, when you have a Disrespectful and a Reprehensible card-carrying Racist+ sitting in the Oval Office. Don't ever ask me to Respect a Racist. Of course, I never heard you talk about the Disrespect Barack Obama received on a daily basis and ONLY because he was Black. Even if you did, I --ME--never heard you say, "Respect him."
donald trump Disrespects the Office of the President everyday as a Vile Nasty Repugnant human being with profound regrets to those who are human. His litany of derogatory comments about Mexicans, Hispanics more broadly, Native Americans, Muslims, Jews, immigrants, women, and people with disabilities has no end. Let me just zero in on his comments about Black folks, which I can address up close and personal.
While president, donald trump called me and those who looked like me "Sons of Bitches"...said the country of my ancestral birth was a "Shit" country...said Black elected female members of Congress were "Dumb"... called cities which are majority Black, "cesspools"... and this list which is extensive, and these comments were made since he has been president. There is a long list of his Core Racist Attitudes before he was "put in" the position of president.
It always gets to the point where White folks can say and do whatever they want to say and do to Blacks irrespective of their position and their station in life, and Black folks are supposed to tuck their tails, break into a "Doo-Dah" and say, "Thank you suh. Can I have some more of your Disrespect?"
Just so we are clear...as long as donald trump is president of these AS YET United States of America, he gets NO respect from me...him or the office he cheated to get. When you give Respect , you get Respect. You have been a White person since birth, and a U.S. senator since 2010. Your White privilege and your 9 years in the Senate does not qualify you to "preach" to me about respecting a Racist. I have been Black since birth and have been the target of White American Racist Disrespect since birth. I do not Respect a Racist...or the Office he holds...Period.
The Struggle Continues!
