An Earnest Call To More Than Condemn A Racist & Bigoted Donald J Trump

On January 11, 2018, the persistently racist and bigoted Donald J Trump, boldly asked U.S. lawmakers “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” and proceeded to suggest that “…the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway...”  This racist and bigoted comment should be more than enraging to Ethiopians, Africans, Haitians and many other people of many other countries. In fact, it should prompt all concerned to take actions.People should start calling their representatives in Congress to file their outrage at the lack of a government action to curtail the insanity that Trump brought to the executive branch of the American government and beyond.  People should also press their homeland governments to reevaluate their relations with this unhinged almost anarchic administration.  A good area of reevaluating should start by examining Trump’s and his family business deals in action and deals in the making.  No government on earth should allow for such a racist and bigoted person benefit financially.  The financial interest that a government may be getting out of a private Trump deal is a liability—not a gain that trickles down to those who Trump sees as less deserving.

 

Concerned governments should also not mistake thatTrump is even anti-American and that their action not only serve the interest of their respective peoples but also the interest of the American people as well.  The American people do not deserve Trump, since most Americans do not subscribe to Trump’s view of humanity.  And yet, their so called representative government has failed to speak and act in one voice on behalf of them.  The catalyst to all this madness is made possible by the Republican Party that harbors racist and bigoted white folks.  The racist and bigoted Trump sits at the head of this party—a party which has grown willing to forgo American core values to just win an election.  It is what the Republican Party few rich enablers want, and they are getting their money’s worth.  The Republican Party may not be an openly racist machine of the haves.  But it more than tolerates racist and bigoted comments to rationalize the words and deeds of an unhinged racist Donald J Trump. 

 

Unfortunately, some may find ways to disagree with the suggested proposition to more than condemn Donald J Trump for his racist and bigoted comment.  However, and no matter how some try to sanitize the words that Trump used to address people other than his kind in color, his words constitute a grandiose claim that only a racist knucklehead can make.  Picking on an entire people to insulttheir country of origin as “shithole” and hence less deserving of residing here in the U.S., is a grandiose claim that only a racist knuckle head can make; I should re-emphasize. (By the way, there are more Ethiopian doctors residing in America than they are in Ethiopia. Just for your consideration).  No matter how much one tries to present the shades and meaning of a word and the context under which it is made, the meaning of categorically labeling an entire people as those who came from“shithole countries” is racist and bigoted.

Of course, one should not be led by emotion to condemn Donald J Trump.  He or she should be led not only by evidence but also by a pattern that the evidence draws to avail itself to be heard and observed.   That is why, at a higher level of pedagogy, students are trained not to think thinly and arrive at a conclusion withoutsupporting evidence.  Those who specialize in the natural sciences are especially trained to arrive at a conclusion—after the discovery of a pattern that repeats itself nearly all the time.  This is the very basic principle upon which an inquiry of a scientific nature is based.  And if one follows and collect the words, phrases, innuendoes…etc. that Trump uses to express his deepest believes about people other than his kind in color, he or she would observe a pattern.  And the pattern reveals that Trump for as long as he lived is more than in tune with the wordshe uses. He is simply a racist and bigoted knucklehead.

The Evidence:

He attacked Muslim Gold Star parents

He claimed a judge was biased because “he’s a Mexican”

The Justice Department sued his company ― twice ― for not renting to black people

In fact, discrimination against black people has been a pattern in his career

He refused to condemn the white supremacists who are campaigning for him

He questioned whether President Obama was born in the United States

He treats racial groups as monoliths

“The Hispanics are going to get those jobs, and they’re going to love Trump.”

Donald Trump, July 2015

He trashed Native Americans, too

He encouraged the mob justice that resulted in the wrongful imprisonment of the Central Park Five

He condoned the beating of a Black Lives Matter protester

He called supporters who beat up a homeless Latino man “passionate”

He stereotyped Jews and shared an anti-Semitic meme created by white supremacists

He treats African-American supporters as tokens to dispel the idea he is racist
