    Welcome to Trumpís America, where being White is being Right.

    Before the squawkers comment...the title of the thread is the first sentence in the article. Links are embedded throughout the list.

    There is something horribly wrong in this country to cause some Americans to treat other Americans in such shameful, disgusting ways just because of their skin color. It's more open now, under tRump, as racists/bigots recognize him as one of their own.


    The open bigotry of Trumpland is beginning to backfire on the racists
    Welcome to Trump’s America, where being White is being Right.

    Almost.

    Many of us have said that it was always this way for a long time, yet we weren’t believed. We were said to be exaggerating things, “playing the race card”, just blowing isolated incidents all out of proportion. I think we’re well past that now and it’s become quite obvious that this isn’t just a passing fad.
    [...]
    Yes, it’s had been this bad — it just wasn’t quite so obvious before, now even the reasonable but previously clueless white people are starting to notice. We have at least progressed past the argument that black people are “imagining their persecution” anymore. At least somewhat. The only real question now has become: is this sudden rash of racial incidents, from micro-aggressions to full on tirades and violent attacks begun to spread because of the openly bigoted views of Donald Trump or are they merely coincidental?
    [...]

    And people wonder why most of us are dealing with high anxiety, and they make jokes about the 10,000 doom thread.

    Just because some portion of me and mine are okay (my nephew married a bi-racial woman) doesn't mean I shouldn't fear how things are going.

    And I cannot figure out what is wrong with every American who sees nothing wrong with the direction this country is headed.

    I know. Anyone who thinks racial equality has gotten better under IQ45, they are kidding themselves.

    Considering he is racist, now all the other racists feel embolden. "Very fine people"

    The question of race remains an important topic in America and everyone is challenged there by a difference which biologically does not exist. Whatever you do, you are either on one side or the other of the color barrier and you exist being white or non white. Would it be a good idea to forbid any mention of the race on official documents ? So no one could in advance shape his own behavior knowing if someone is colored or not ?

    great idea. mentioned that a couple years ago, but there wasn't much interest in it. after all, just being defined as either "citizen" or "immigrant" doesn't go far in America.

    Not mentioning it doesn't solve the problem.

    THis has been going on for a very long time. To pin this on Trump shows how partisan many are. Everything now is partisan. This election made your brains explode and eyes glaze over.

    I agree. The latent racism has been there all along. I don't pin the current environment in which racists feel entitled to let their freak flags fly, so to speak, entirely upon Trump. He's really more of a symptom. The problem belongs to the entire Republican Party.

    Exactly. He emboldened them.

    At first I was all like "sunshine is the best disinfectant" and now I'm "GET THE FUCK BACK UNDER YOUR ROCK AND STAY THERE, YOU SICK FUCK."
