Load the clip bruh, I gotta vent real swift.
The orange man is back at it again.
45 says so much racist shit I’m starting to believe he has a daily quota or some shit. Well, back at it again it’s the orange man with another racist biscuit for his dog ass klan.
First, Some Context
So before I breakdown 45’s racist bs, it’s important to give you all some context.
The orange man didn’t just wake up feeling extra racist yesterday and hit Twitter to vent.
This is just he’s latest campaign pitch for his 2020 reelection bid.
If you didn’t know, this mfs has been verbally assaulting minority members of Congress like it’s his birthright. I mean, let’s not forget how Trump burst on the political scene in the first fucking place…
Anyway, two weekends ago, 45’s clown ass told four progressive Democratic congresswomen of color to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The irony of course is, three of the four were born in the US, and the fourth is a naturalized US citizen.
Since then he’s been on a racist tour all across this country spewing lies and misinformation about black people, and now his Twitter fingers are pointed at civil rights icon, Elijah Cummings.
So, WTF Happened This Time???
Ya’ boy was doing what he actually does best. Tweeting…
Elijah got on the orange man’s racist hitlist because of the way he pressed Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan over border conditions during a congressional hearing back on July 18th.
Not to mention, Cummings’ committee has also launched a number of investigations into the Trump administration related to Trump’s finances and White House practices, including security clearances and Hatch Act violations. Pretty much all the shit Trump should be impeached for.
Since 45’s skin is just as fragile (and orange) as the skin on cuties, he couldn’t help himself from hitting Twitter to vent.
I don’t fuck with the orange one in the slightest, so I won’t be linking to his string of racist ass tweets that trigged this post.
Instead, I’ll just provide quotes to the bull shit this MF had the audacity to fix his fingers to type yesterday.
“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA…”
“If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”
“Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States.”
“No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen?”
It’s so much racism packed in those quotes, boy…
I’m not going to waste my time picking through each tweet, outlining the clear racial undertones to try and persuade mfs how racist these tweets are.
If I did that, we’d be here all mf day.
Instead, I want to focus on how these tweets highlight the true nature of racism and how it manifests throughout American society.
I’m actually working on a piece titled, “New Racism,” so instead of giving you guys the advance course on racism and shit, I hope you can settle for the crash course. At least for now.
Racism is a structure, not isolated events.
Within the structure of racism, society grants a variety of advantages (tangible & intangible) to a specific racial group at the expense of another racial group. Here in America, we call those advantages, white privilege.
White Privilege |
White privilege is the societal privilege that in some countries benefits white people over non-white people, particularly if they are otherwise under the same social, political, or economic circumstances.
I’m about to show you one of the many ways in which racisms works here in America.
45 has been spending the last few weeks attacking the squad implying they’re basically unAmerican because of their sharp criticism towards past and present American policies.
“If you’re not happy here you can leave. That is what I say all of the time. That’s what I said in a Tweet which I guess some people think is controversial, a lot of people love it by the way. A lot of people love it but if you are not happy in the U.S. if you are complaining all of the time very simply you can leave. You can leave right now.” – Y’all President
Of course, the Orange one wasn’t alone in these beliefs… I mean, just see for yourself…
*Sidenote | They rarely bring up the policies these woman support… But I will 🙂
Other Related Pieces: What Americans think of Trump’s ‘go back’ to your country tweets
So following this, don’t like it, leave logic, I’m assuming wypipop are lining up for the next boat back to England, and Ireland, right?
I mean, last time I checked, Baltimore is located in the United States of America, emphases on UNITED. And according to Mr. Dumbass and his klan, anyone who has the nerve to disrespect America by calling one of it’s largest cities a “dangerous & filthy place,” needs to go.
“If you are complaining all of the time very simply you can leave.” That’s ya’ boy saying this, not me.
You and I both know, that shit ain’t happening.
Which points us to the very nature of what white privilege is and how it supports the main structure of racism here in America.
Usually, when anti-racist talk about white privilege they point to the racial disparities seen in our criminal justice system. I.E. Black men sentenced to more time for committing the exact same crime as a white person.
The reason for this is simple. Using hard stats to support your argument is one of the most effective recruiting tools one can use in a debate or formal conversation surrounding race.
The tough thing about white privilege is that it operates behind the scene most of the time.
In this situation, white privilege is hiding in the idea of who is actually considered to be real Americans. Only those deemed as “real Americans” (people who have bought-in | assimilated to the idea of whiteness) can enjoy the full rights and freedoms of American citizenship, which includes the freedom of speech.
Trump Supporters 2015: America is going to shit, that’s why we need to elect Trump so he can make America great again.
Trump Supporters 2019: If you don’t like it here, leave. If you are complaining all of the time very simply you can leave.
Since 45 and his Klan don’t consider black people and other POC to be real American citizens, they have no problem denying them their full rights.
This complicity gives the government a green light to implement policies that echo this belief as well as openly neglect to implement policies that protect the racial minorities targetting by those who share this belief.
I’ll give you one last example.
People used to call leaders in the civil rights movement, Communists who were drumming up racial tensions in the black community. They’d also accuse them of planning some sort of hostile black takeover, where black people would politically overthrow the white power structure of America, simply because these brave woman and men stood up and fought for their rights as American citizens.
Since the American public believed all the bs that was being fed to them through either the media or even our own government, they grew compliant in the government’s actions towards these leaders in the Civil Right Movement. This, of course, led us to what we now know today as; COINTELPRO.
COINTELPRO was a series of covert, and at times illegal, projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations, mainly the Black Panther Party. COINTELPRO is considered to be both directly and indirectly respoosible for some of the major political assissanations that ouccerd throughout the 50’s & 60’s
I say all this to say, come get ya boy before his clown ass puts us in a situation we can’t come back from…
