The Last Straw?

I heard a local talk radio host supporting Trump. He said, he just hasn’t seen racism coming out of this White House. I could point out statements some of Trump’s appointees have said. I will instead focus just on Donald Trump.

In the 1980’s back when Trump

owned casinos in Atlantic City,

managers knew he didn’t like black employees.

That meant that when Donald and Ivana

came to the casino, the bosses would order

all the black people off the floor.

The New Jersey Casino Control Commission

fined the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino $200,000

because managers would remove African-American

card dealers at the request of a certain big-spending gambler.

Donald Trump and his KKK rally attending dad

were successfully sued twice for racial discrimination

by the Justice Department because they wouldn’t rent to blacks.

When Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition

he tried to relate to the crowd by invoking the stereotype

of Jews as talented and cunning businesspeople.

Trump said, “I’ve got black accountants at

Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza.

Black guys counting my money! I hate it.

The only kind of people I want counting my money

are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

Trump talked about a black employee being lazy.

He said it’s probably not his fault because laziness

is a trait in blacks and not anything they can control.

In 1989, Trump purchased ads calling

for the death penalty for the “Central Park Five,”

four black men and one Latino man

accused of rape who were later

exonerated thanks to DNA evidence.

Trump never apologized for accusing them.

He was still insisted they were guilty

during the 2016 presidential election.

He got press insisting America’s first black president

was  Kenyan and not really born in the United States.

He started off his campaign calling Mexicans rapists.

He stated that a judge couldn’t rule on him fairly

in a case because the judge had Mexican heritage.

He trashed a Gold Star family because they were Muslim.

He talked about Africa and said the residents all live in huts.

He claimed the residents of  Haiti all had AIDS.

At a meeting Trump expressed surprised to learn

that it is mostly white people who are on welfare.

At a meeting with members of the Congressional Black Caucus,

Trump asked the elected officials if they knew Ben Carson.

When the members said, no, Trump expressed surprise.

It was as if Trump thought all blacks knew one another.

Trump claimed, there were really good people

on the Nazi White Supremacist side in Charlottesville.

He said, Puerto Ricans were  losers who wanted handouts

after their island have been devastated by a hurricane.

He called, Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas”

when he suppose to be honoring  Navajo code talkers.

Most recently, Trump decided to disrespect

lots of foreign nations all in one fall swoop..

He referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and certain nations

in Africa as “shithole countries” during a meeting

with lawmakers in the Oval Office.

And he added that the United States should

admit more people from places like Norway.

Many people are calling this the final

straw that broke the camel’s back.

It wouldn’t have broken the camel’s back

had not the heavy weight of so many

other straws not already been there.

If this isn’t actually Trump’s final straw

how much more racism from him will it take?

Racism is the very last thing that

will ever make America great again.
