Anyone who overlooks, dismisses, rationalizes or excuses Trump’s white supremacist/white racist words, policies, and documented history for whatever reason is just as “racist” as he is. You see, only so-called “white” people have the luxury of wondering, questioning, and then “deciding” whether Trump’s racism trumps the economy or foreign policy or immigration “reform,” or….etc., ad infinitum. That’s because you — white people — do not face a dominating mass of people every single day of your life who get to make life-altering (life and death) decisions about you based on whether they like, dislike or are neutral about the color of your skin. And because you (white people) are rarely, if ever, put into such a position, you do not see or believe that “race” is a “problem.” And you are right: It’s not a problem — for you. So, you have to twist yourself into a pretzel in order to even begin to believe what black people have been telling you for…oh…400 years now.

So, please stop. Stop it. Just stop it. Trump and any and all who support him — again, for any reason whatsoever — is just as bad as he is. Just as “racist” as he is. Your support for his so-called “economic” policies, “immigration” policies, foreign policies, all of it, enables, buttresses, supports his (and your own) white supremacist/white racist core.
