When you understand one of the components of White American Racism is disrespect, what you see playing out in Washington, DC by donald trump, America’s Racist-in-chief, is no surprise...no surprise to Black America, that is.
donald trump is trying to soothe two dagger-wounds to his ego. First, he succeeded a Black President of whom, far and away, he could not favorably compare, no matter how hard he tried. Secondly, Black voters in major metropolitan cities throughout this country turned out as never before to vote and rebuke his Racism...his vile core racist diatribes...and his thought process of White supremacy.
His reaction? Try and turn the election upside down and appeal to the prurient interests of Racist White America to “throw out” the votes of millions of Blacks. American institutions be damned. Let me say that again...donald trump, Racist that he is, is blatantly, brazenly, and “Racistly” trying to invalidate and disenfranchise the lawful votes of millions of Black American voters.
And how does he intend to do it? Through the arrogance of his White privilege. After all, to hear him and Racists like him tell it, America was founded for Whites, not for Niggers.
There are those who are surprised White America has not pushed back at his Racist intransigence. President Obama said he was surprised there was not more of a push back from Republicants, White Republicants, that is. Count me as one of those NOT surprised. White America knew exactly who and what they were getting when they voted for a Racist, with a documented “record” of Racism, as president. I am scornfully amused at White America’s indignation that donald trump would trash American institutions in his quest to steal an election, after he was FIRED as president. Indignation! Really? White America has a short memory.
White American apparently learned nothing from 4 years of donald trump’s Racist narcissism ...4 years of donald trump's Racist ignorance ...4 years of donald trump's Racist stupidity...4 years of donald trump's sheer systemic Racism of hiring Racists in his administration, who think like him. 4 years of donald trump's Racist screeds calling Black and Brown countries “shithole counties...calling Black NFL players “sons of bitches”... telling Black Congresswomen to “go back to where they came from”...calling Black females in the news “dumb”...and calling Vice-President Kamala Harris a “monster. donald trump's disrespect, and White America's disrespect, by its complicit silence, of me and those who look like me, is as American as the confederate flag.
White America and its callous disrespect for Black Americans made donald trump. From the myths of “All Men are created equal”...to “We, The People”...to the degradation of treating my forebearers as property, White America made donald trump and made him in its Racist image. So trashing Democracy with the support of Racist White Republicants for its Racist benefits is no surprise. Anything to show Black America their votes do not count. Anything to continue to reinforce the disrespect of Black America collectively, and Black Americans individually. Anything to show White American Racism, which is also as American as the Klan robe...as American as the Racist “Star Spangled Banner”...and as American as its Incomplete, Dishonest and Racist American History.
WE will continue to fight your Racism, White America, which is what the Struggle is all about...AND...The Struggle Continues! Just understand, YOUR Racism is not surprising.
