    Under Trump, the US Govt is now an engine of systematic white supremacy

    Over the entire existence of this country, we've had governments outwardly promote white supremacy. From anti-reconstruction support for former slave owners under Andrew Johnson, turn of the century Jim Crowism, Woodrow Wilson's endorsement of the KKK, FDR's internment of Japanese-American citizens, the tolerance for several administrations for white only access to government programs from home loans to the GI Bill, and the use of the Southern Strategy by recent GOP administrations like Nixon and Reagan. For much of the 19th and 20th centuries, there were very few presidents who were untainted by the stain of American white supremacy.

    With civil and human rights campaigns, the conscience of the nation was raised, as we've tried to collectively move away from systematic white supremacy in the modern era of the last quarter century. But now, as a nation under increasingly fascistic right wing Republican terror, we've regressed with a vengeance. Just look at the way that Pence and Trump's NFL stunt cements white fragility under their campaign of white supremacy just today.

    That's exactly what was behind it, outright white fragility and creating racial divisions, in order to rile up his already racist base. People who feel threatened whenever whiteness isn't being centered are the ones who are triggered by stunts like this. Just show his rubes some uppity black people and watch them totally lose their shit.

    And since he couldn't get any mileage out some white-on-white violence, when a white terrorist mowed down mostly white country music concert goers in Las Vegas, he made up for it by openly sending his chief hypocrite on an expensive charade to attack some handy black NFL players.

    Of course, it won't be the last time they'll go out of their way to generate anti-black animosity.

    Since the beginning of this month:

    - Not one word from this White House about the Nazis who have marched again in Charlottesville.

    - Snubbing Native Americans while praising the genocidal mass murderer, Christopher Columbus.

    - Urging his base to show outward racial animosity towards black NFL players.

    - His attacks against the Mayor of San Juan and the citizens of Puerto Rico.

    American white supremacy is being empowered by this President and we've seeing him use the core of white fragility to make his racist white base believed that they're being victimize. He's a danger to the republic and he's destroying it right before our very eyes.

    FDT.

    1. All true.

    Once we get these jackasses out of power we have to make sure and never let them regain control of our government. No more "fair play" or bipartisanship.
    Obama started it with his claims of racism and blatantly stoking race resentments. They think that if they keep pushing the racism meme for political gain that they "win". At best they are most likely to find that it'll end in political loss, but with their lies, hate and constant accusations they may not be satisfied until we have a Rwanda in the US.

    Makes a person wonder what color these people are. Now if they're all white they need to take a stroll thru Harlem on foot about midnight. Ha a buddy and myself did walk all the way thru Harlem in 66 because we hitch hiked from West Point to spend the weekend in the city. We could go to the Cardinal Spellmans USO club which was what we planned on doing but we were broke and something like being broke was never enough to keep two young GIs from going sight seeing. Harlem was cool then and no one even looked our way, the buddy sold his watch to some dude at a service station so we would have subway money and on Sunday evening time to catch a bus at the USO back to West Point we were running down the street trying to get back to the USO and a beat cop stopped us and asked what we were running for and we told him we needed to be there at the USO to catch that bus but had no money to catch the bus, he stepped out on the curb and flagged a bus and told the driver to give us a ride to the USO. New York was really a nice town in 66 and we met some fantastic people. Now today I have my doubts and I don't think I would want to make that walk again.

    The vast majority of the DUmmies are white males
    and they hate themselves for it.

    Of course, they hate just about everything. Today's hate
    du jour was up coming Columbus Day. They have been
    bashing it for the last 2 days.
