Calling all white liberals, progressives, democrats, democratic socialists, etc. Come one, come all. Are you angry, sickened, and hateful of Donald Trump’s blatant lies, hypocrisy, narcissism, gaslighting, racism, white supremacy, etc.? I know, I know. It’s been a very long three years or so dealing with this man-child, I know. I also know that so many of you, these three years of Trump has felt like 400 years. But, before you start feeling too sorry for your white lives, some of us have actually had to deal with man-children like Trump for the past 400 years in America.
White privilege (institutional and social) has protected you from the evils of men like Trump. However, American Descendants of Slaves (ADOS) have had to put up with, and suffer the results of white people’s blatant lies, hypocrisy, narcissism, gaslighting, racism, white supremacy, etc. for over 400 years. You see, over 90 percent of ADOS hate Trump the same as about 40 percent of white Americans. We just don’t see the sense in pulling our whole hair out while running down the middle of the street nude and screaming. To us, Trump is just another privileged, silver-spoon fed, emotionally inept, criminal enterprising, money-loving, power-grabbing, pale-male superiority-complex having white man.
Also, you must take some responsibility for Trump. You liberal whites voted for Obama twice and then many of you decided to stay home because of your hatred for the Clintons and because Bernie didn’t win the nomination. You should have known that your racist family members where wide awake and energized after dealing with eight years of that negro president. Trump knew it; and he played directly to them as you set back. ADOS knew it too (cyclical history to us). As much as you want to ignore it, these racists are YOUR relatives. They’re around you on holidays, funerals, and reunions. But you ignore their racism, bigotry, xenophobia, etc. Well, now that ignorance is driving you nuts.
So, dear white people: we, from the Black delegation ask of you- be angry, be very angry; but please go to the beauty salon or barber shop, get out of the middle of the street, and put some damn clothes on! It’s only been THREE years for you! #whitepeopling
