I believe this is a prime example of normal, every day, white supremacism. It isn't always torches and swastikas. Just the blind, unrecognized fact that you got where you are on the back and the blood and bodies of many people. It is not a bad thing, necessarily, it just is. But when you take advantage of that privilege without recognizing the bloody legacy, when you deny the reality of ongoing racism and oppression, then, I question you, and your motives, and your values.
A reply to Zackary Kershaw, from The Dabiscan Chronicles, a closed FB group of Yabberz alumni and detritus:
One of Trumps glaring flaws is that he is not a politician. He is not polished and suave. He embodies the NY brash take no prisoners persona. That's who he is. I have said and I believe that will help and hurt him in the office of President. But, he connects with average everyday people with his plain manner of talking. I do not and never had great expectations for his time in office. His habit of randomly praising and bashing leaders in Congress won't really serve him well to get much accomplished legislatively. My main expectations for him are simple. #1) appoint conservative minded justices to the 133 or so vacant judicial seats, and fill a couple of spots on the Supreme Court as well. #2) Get a few legislative items passed and that's about it. As far as the possibility of a new war, I have stated many times over that I felt that whoever took office as POTUS 45, that person would have to face a deadly and dangerous world with the looming possibility of a new war. You have to understand. Millions of people were repulsed by Hillary. Many Democrats stayed home and did not go vote back in the November elections. Many youth did what the youth always do. They rally and bluster but never go vote. Trump had a loyal fan base, but a lot of people voted for him to keep Hillary away from winning. So I said all this to give you the frame of mind I am in. I am sure some others here might agree with me, or maybe not.
And my reply to him.
