Trump is going to openly and blatantly use racial
fear mongering as his bridge over troubled waters to reach
and instill abject fear and loathing into any nervous white
If you noted his vile commentary on a recent Fox News
interview with his ally, Laura Ingraham, Trump intentionally
used the scenario that if you allow, “low income housing” (a
code word for black folks) into white suburbia, that
property values will plummet and crime will increase and
most importantly: women (white of course) will be at the
mercy of hyper-sexed black men.
Now, he did not link the words, black men and white
women but his commentary was clear and unmistakable - that
Trump is fomenting the surf and foam of racial paranoia
amongst white suburban voters and, especially, the fair,
gentle and pure white woman.
Trump wants suburban white men to know that if black
folks move to “their” suburbs, that their wives and
daughters are directly in harm’s way.
In harm’s way of being accosted and possibly assaulted
by big black burly bucks who are unemployed and are lazily
living off the taxpayer’s dime in low-income housing.
Now Trump knows that such fabrications are the product
of his sick and demented mind but, he is aggressively
employing those motifs in his attempt to install fear and
loathing for minorities and to associate “those” people with
Trump is shameless in his scathing attack on black
people. Ever since he and his now deceased father were sued
by HUD for racial discrimination in housing in the NYC area,
Trump is still unrepentant of his racial hostilities.
When he railed against black football players taking
a knee, he screamed to get those, “Son of B**ches” off the
field! As you know a b**ch is a female dog.
Trump had no qualm in calling black women, dogs. None
whatsoever and much less calling African countries,
If you have ever seen the racist film, Birth of a
Nation, you may recall the scene wherein a fair white
damsel was being pursued by a black man seemingly with the
intents to do her harm.
This damsel, in distress, leaps off a cliff rather than face
the clutches of a black male.
This is the scene that Trump wants to resurrect in the
fantasies and phobias of whites who live in white suburbia.
Trump’s whispered message is that if “they” come to
“your” suburbs, “they”, as a bonus, are coming to date and
mate with your wives and daughters!
Trump knows the history of racial sexual politics in this
race crazed society. He knows that If he raises the specter
of black males roaming white suburbs in their malls, bars
and restaurants, that white folks will be alarmed and
Trump delights in racial chaos and if he can have
ethnic groups plotting against each other and he is viewed
as the only person who can save the suburbs from marauding
bands of lustful black males, he will get the white suburban
Is that shameful and despicable? Sure it is but you are
dealing with an unhinged person (thanks to the book title by
the same name by the author Omarosa Manigault) who has no
scruples about using racial demagoguery to win another four
years in the White House.
Trump’s method of campaigning is by any means necessary
and if that means traducing people of color so be it. To
him, ascribing negative images and character traits to black
men and women is a case where the end justifies the means.
Do not think that the recent sky-high purchasing of
guns and ammo is for naught.
America is turning into an armed camp and that doomsday
scenario is furthered along by the divisive rhetoric of
Sadly, the nigh 81 percent of white evangelicals who
voted for him and the feckless GOP leadership, have taken
sleeping pills and have no concern about Trump’s poison
tongue; and his innate ability to create out of whole cloth
whopping lies, lies that have no basis in a smidgen of
Trump is saying to the white suburbs, “Only I can protect
you from those menacing hordes who want to trample over your
white picket fences and drive through your clean streets,
cars without mufflers and have BBQ picnics on the front lawn
with boom boxes!”
You get the picture.
