It's like they missed the memo that Trump's entire existence is literally a Whites only sign.
By now — absent of bottoming for Black Jesus while wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and following it up by throwing a party for undocumented workers and Muslims at the White House — there is nothing Donald Trump can do to alienate his most ardent supporters.
Those voters are White people who harbor what has been comically described as “cultural anxiety” in recent months. They love him because he affirms their identity politics; they cherish him because he refuses to cower to calls for basic human decency or what they would dismiss as political correctness. They won’t shift and we know why.
However, when it comes to Black people who support 45, following his comments about events that happened in Charlottesville, one wonders just what will it take for their Black asses to wake up?
Over the weekend, the New York Times published “A Deal Breaker for Trump’s Supporters? Nope. Not This Time, Either,” leading with the image and quotes from a Black female supporter of 45. Of all the times a Black woman’s perspective could have been used to lead a national political story, it was quite curious that this mainstream newspaper opted to do so in this instance.
Nevertheless, 35-year-old Parson Hicks said of the most recent controversy of this consistently controversial administration:
“Let’s be honest, the people who are currently outraged are the same people who have always been outraged. The media makes it seem like something has changed, when in reality nothing has.”
If that wasn’t enough to send your eyes rolling, while Hicks does acknowledge that the Confederate monuments her president defended were majorly erected to intimidate Black people, she claimed:
“This is not about me as a black person, and my history. This is about this president and wanting to take him down because you don’t like him.”
Sadly, she is not the most ridiculous Black apologists for that racist devil.
CBS fails to find women of any hue to lead their scripted shows, but they did manage to find two Black women who think 45’s stances on the confederate monuments are no big deal.
One, Janelle Jones, said:
“I don’t look at him as my pastor or my moral leader. I look at him as the leader as it relates to governmental issues.”
She also blamed “identity politics” for the lingering racial strife in America as if “Make America Great Again” was not identity politics as a condensed to a campaign slogan.
The other, Lucretia Hughes, said:
“I wasn’t born back then you wasn’t either. So why is that affecting us? If anything we should grow and learn from it. Just like Martin Luther King said, you don’t judge people by the color of their skin. You base that on their character.”
Even if you believe in the Santa Clause version of Dr. King, as this woman appears to, in terms of character, 45 has none. So what in the hell is she talking about?
Of course, a gaggle of conservative Christian pastors congregated to denounce the denunciations of 45. Corrogan Vaughn argued:
“Don’t make our commander in chief a villain when in actuality it is more the villainess of the media in terms of making something where nothing is.”
William Allen added:
“I will say this about the repeated ascription of President Trump as the driver of hateful speech in our country: there are two things wrong with that view. The first thing wrong with it is we are pretending to hide behind blaming President Trump for our failures.”
Others piled on the stupidity in defense of the White nationalist sympathizer president who cares not about any of their Black asses.
Then came the biggest bag of vacuousness courtesy of Katrina Pierson, a former spokesman for that madman’s campaign, who appeared on Fox News and spoke of slavery as “good history” to the disbelief of Wendy Osefo, the other Black panelist to appear in the segment.
I understand why ignorant White people caught up in the rapture of White supremacy follow Sweet Potato Saddam no matter how dumb the direction is. Yet, I struggle with his Black supporters who continue to speak on the behalf of a man who described attendants of a White nationalist/White supremacist, pro-Robert E. Lee monument rally as “fine people.” Like, do these Negroes — and Lord knows I want to use another word here — think life is like White Chicks and that if they bend to the will of this racist jackass, they will get to rub some white privilege on their skin and lives?
Someone inform these people that isn’t how any of this works. That he cares nothing about him and will only keep proving it. That he only likely makes room for a few of “The Blacks” in his life and Omarosa and these walking B.A.P.S. remakes are about it.
It’s time someone gave them a sign that Trump’s entire existence is literally a Whites only sign.
