The fact trump received so few minority votes is reflective of the complicit passive racism in many whites and which got this clown elected.


Economic Anxiety Didn’t Make People Vote Trump, Racism Did


The wink, wink by whites in the election led to the activities yesterday in Charlottesville and got three killed.  Many whites are complicit in the deaths....we knew that trumpy was inciting hate and many were just fine with that.

Republicans will never denounce the alt-Right - it would be political suicide, and they love money and power above people.


The ONLY solution is for Democrats to refocus on THE ECONOMY and how we allow the pie to be divided. Until the mid-1970's, Corporations provided half the total federal tax revenue. Now its under 20%, and hundreds of billion-dollar corporation pay NOTHING. Since we became a Nation, the rich have paid the taxes to support the Government from their surplus. Now the burden has been shifted to the Middle Class by replacing Federal taxes with hundreds of fees and assessments on everything that once was "free" for everyone.

Trump’s moral idiocy

Message 4 of 4


Enough of the Confederate statues, the alt-right heroes and Trump’s moral idiocy


Chaos and violence turned to tragedy Saturday as hundreds of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members — planning to stage what they described as their largest rally in decades to “take America back” — clashed with counterprotesters in the streets and a car plowed into crowds, leaving one person dead and 19 others injured.


Skip down


Trump did not tell the white nationalists to go to Charlottesville or to commit violence. But his campaign and presidency have given white nationalists cover, oxygen and the dream of respectability. And now, when the moment calls for some semblance of presidential leadership and denunciation of racists, he cannot bring himself to criticize a group that is unarguably part of his base (not a majority, but among his strongest fans).


This kind of stomach-turning display of moral obtuseness is precisely what opponents of Trump predicted when they warned that he was unfit for the presidency. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) on Saturday denounced white nationalism as a “scourge,” but he supported Trump even after Trump attacked a federal judge and Gold Star, Muslim parents. What did Ryan think America was getting?


What did the people who voted him into office think they were getting?  Can they really say they didn't know?
