Trump Will Mean HELL for Black People
November 28, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
Don’t fall for, or repeat, the line that “Black people have made it through everything else, we’ll make it through Trump.” First of all, what will Trump mean for humanity here and all over the world—waging war, destroying the environment, persecuting immigrants and Muslims, and violently degrading women? Is any of that remotely acceptable? Who is the “we” that we ALL need to be concerned with?
But in fact be clear on this as well: Trump intends to violently reassert white supremacy. Check out the article in the American Crime series on what happened after Reconstruction was betrayed and then “rolled back” to get a sense of what this could look like (see “The Colfax Massacre of 1873...”). Or seriously check out Trump himself: his history with the Central Park Five (see “No, Trump, the Central Park Five Were Innocent All Along...“); or the screams and chants of “Law and Order” and “Blue Lives Matter” during his campaign. If Trump is not prevented from consolidating this madness, there will be hell to pay.
Don’t “Normalize” Fascism. In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America.
