Donald Trump

A Legacy of Hate


By Sevgi Fernandez 

No longer are the threats thinly veiled
No longer is your judgement of our little boys and girls spoon fed to us with a sprinkling of sugar to mask the coal that you plant in our hearts

The coal that with time and proper feeding seeps slowly through our beings raping us of hopes, dreams, pride and future

You have come full circle now

Openly feeding the currents of ignorance 

Nourishing the streams of fear, spawning a new generation of creatures who embrace inhumanity, who would sooner claw out their eyes than truly open them

“Let’s make America great again!” your rally cry as you latch on to the desperate 

As you leech any morsel of decency from the masses of drones who blindly follow

Your alternative facts, a glimpse into the alternate reality that is the 1%

Your past immigrant 

Your present dictator

Your future, a legacy of hate

Trump’s Civil War

  
By Sevgi Fernandez

Civil War! We’ve been in one! Race war! It’s been here! We are going to all have to engage in this fight in order for it to end. It WILL get worse before it gets better. They are fearful, they know they have already lost and they will do anything to hold on. The United States is no longer a nation that will be run by the racist white elite. The civil rights movement began what our revolution will finish! We cannot do it divided. We must come together, it can’t just be about individual communities. Natives, Muslims, Immigrants, Blacks, Asians, Christians, LGBTQs, we are all one community that must unite against the hate and oppression. We must garner our power and hold each other up through this most important battle. Losing IS NOT AN OPTION!#TogetherWeStand

White Rage: Poll Finds that Whites, Republicans Are the Angriest Americans, while Blacks, the Victims of Racism are Least Angry

  
January 4, 2016

By: David Love

White people are angry, and a poll says they are the angriest in America. It looks as if white America, collectively, is crying white tears.
According to a new NBC News/Survey Monkey/Esquire online poll about outrage in the country, 49 percent of Americans are angry. But not all anger is equally distributed. It turns out that 54 percent of whites are angry, followed by Latinos at 43 percent, and African-Americans at 33 percent. Further, while 73 percent of whites said they get angry at least once a day, 66 percent of Latinos and 56 percent of Blacks responded the same way.
And women (53 percent) are angrier than men (44 percent), with 58 percent of white women saying they are angry, as opposed to 44 percent of Black and Brown women.
Another revealing result of this study is that Republicans are angrier than Democrats, as 61 percent—as opposed to 42 percent of Democrats—say they are angrier than a year ago. According to the poll, Republicans cite Congress and consumer fraud as the issues that set them off the most, while Democrats point to the police shooting of unarmed Black men.
In addition, the poll reveals a sentiment in the loss of the so-called “American dream,” with a majority of people finding it hard to get ahead and saying they are worse off. Middle-aged Americans were found to be the most pessimistic. Not surprisingly, the least angry were those earning higher than $150,000, while the angriest earned below $15,000.
It is curious that those who should be the angriest, however, are the least angry. That, of course, would be Black people. After all, Black folks are the ones who are hunted down, the runaway slaves who pose a constant threat of insurrection in the mind of whites. Black people are the scapegoated and the criminalized, the repository for white insecurity, the personification of white fear, angst, resentment and rage. And as the identified enemy, we pay the price for it in a variety of ways.
At present, we are witnessing white anger playing itself out in the rise of the neo-fascist xenophobe Donald Trump. The rage is rearing its ugly head in all of its grandiosity and dysfunction in Burns, Oregon, where an armed white militia has occupied a federal building, and vows to stay there for years, and kill or be killed. Exactly what is going on here?
It appears there is a confluence of events and circumstances, with the first Black president, and a nation that is becoming increasingly Black and Brown, particularly because Black and Brown people are soon to be a majority. Things were not supposed to be this way, as the idealized, homogeneous America of the 1950s when Black folks were invisible, except when cleaning white folks’ homes or hanging from a tree, is gone.

In the mind of the angry white man, sharing the nation with people of a darker hue, with those whose native language is other than English, and who are not Christian is unacceptable.
Meanwhile, when Black people, who have suffered for the centuries they’ve been in America, receive even a modicum of justice, just a taste of what has been denied to us, whites respond with rage and a feeling something was taken away from them. In comes the white tears, the hurt feelings, the insecurity, an unwarranted feeling of white persecution, of being aggrieved for something Black folks supposedly did.
As Damon Young wrote in The Root, this irrational fear among whites that they lose out when Blacks gain anything has had dangerous, violent consequences for Black people throughout history. For example, the Ku Klux Klan was a direct response to the political and economic gains of Black people following in the post-Civil War reconstruction era.
“It [has] white people so upset that this still relatively small percentage of the population had made some incremental progress, and so threatened by that thought, that they created a terrorist organization to quell it,” Young wrote.
Fareed Zakaria made an excellent point in the Washington Post—whites are in self-destructive mode. They are killing themselves, with mortality rates rising, as rates of death for Blacks and Latinos are declining steadily. The main causes of death among whites, are suicide, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, brought on by depression, despair and stress, particularly among uneducated whites.
Moreover, this is not being experienced in other countries. Zakaria attributes this to the fact that people of color “might not expect that their income, standard of living and social status are destined to steadily improve. They don’t have the same confidence that if they work hard, they will surely get ahead.” He added that “after hundreds of years of slavery, segregation and racism, blacks have developed ways to cope with disappointment and the unfairness of life: through family, art, protest speech and, above all, religion.”
As the poll indicates, white people are angry and they direct their anger against the least angry, those victims of white supremacy who should have the most to be angry about. Welcome to America.

Demand Arrests after assault at Trump Rally!

  
ATTENTION:The police allowed a black man to be assaulted on video at a Trump rally and did nothing. My group Together We Stand is active in cases of police racism/brutality. I’m posting the letters going out below. The more signatures we get the better. If you’d like to add your name please leave (add me) in the comments and I’ll do so. Thank you!
Mayor William A. Bell, Police Chief A.C. Roper, D.A. Brandon K. Falls:

I am writing on behalf of Together We Stand, a national and global group dedicated to racial equality and social change. It has come to our attention that an incident occurred in your city of which we are truly concerned.

After watching the video of the African American man who was assaulted at one of Donald Trump’s campaign rally’s in Birmingham, and the subsequent response, we are utterly dismayed.
Is it not against the law for people to physically assault an individual? We demand that an impartial investigation into the identities of the perpetrators be conducted and that arrests be made. You have all the evidence you need, as we are certain obtaining the video which is rapidly spreading across the Internet is quite simple. Lt. Sean Edwards made the statement that the three people were “asked to leave”, which is an unacceptable response, especially from an officer charged with upholding the law. We certainly hope you take the assault of this man as seriously as we do. This is the United States of America and no one is ABOVE the LAW.

We look forward to your timely response.

Racist’s Fear

Some Counties In Texas Actually Are Denying Birthright Citizenship

THINK PROGRESS Since 2016 Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump released his immigration policy plan to end granting citizenship to U.S.-citizen children born to undocumented immigrants, other GOP candidates have become remarkably supportive of this hard-line stance. Many scholars point out that it’s unclear how this policy would work in practice. It would likely take an […]

Violent Rhetoric from Donald Trump supporters as a result of Rochester Rally

Trump supporters call for me to be “curb stomped,” “hog tied,” and to see me “bleeding on the ground.” Regardless of whether you agree with my opinions, or how I handled myself at Donald Trump’s rally on Thursday, the facts are: 1. Donald asked for opposing view points. 2. He asked me to give him […]

Trump’s White America

  
By Sevgi Fernandez

Donald, Donald, Donald…..

Where shall I begin. 

Just when I think you can’t get any more offensive, you prove me wrong. The only thing I like about you is that you’ve for all intents and purposes turned the republican presidential race into a circus show. So for that, I thank you. It’s been entertaining to watch Jeb squirm.

Let’s get back on track though shall we? So far you’ve managed to offend pretty much every group in the U.S. except white males. Let’s examine a few of your winning statements:

  • They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs.They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. (Mexicans)
  • And some, I assume, are good people!(Mexicans)
  • They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably from the Middle East.
  • I have great respect for Mexico and love their people and their peoples’ great spirit. 
  • Anchor Baby

Stereotype much? Well, at least you assume some Mexicans are good people, and thank you for letting us know you have great respect  for Mexico; I think we may have missed that had you not cleared it up for us……

“Sadly the American dream is dead. But if I get elected president, I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before and we will make America great again.”

Really Donald? You’ll bring it back bigger and better and stronger for who? The Mexican Americans, the African Americans, the Muslims, the Chinese Americans, women? I’m guessing NO. I do however think the right wing, KKK, gun toting, wealthy whites would absolutely see an America that’s better for them.

When reporter Jose Ramos attempts to press you for substantive answers regarding your mass deportation plan, you tell him to “go back to Univision” and have him escorted out.

When people start chanting “White Power” and executing hate crimes inspired by your rhetoric, you conveniently “aren’t aware” of it….

Pretty disturbing, that you avoid questions about deporting millions and turn your back when your racially biased platform rallies the support of radical white supremists. This is definitely not the type of person to be leading a meeting, much less a country in which the white majority will be gone in the next few decades!

We see and hear more and more white,right wingers shouting:

“Get out of my country!” 

“Go back to where you came from!”

I am here to offer you poorly educated, ignorant folks a bit of history. Unless, you are Native American, you and your family are the immigrants! Donald Trump’s family immigrated here from Germany and Scottland and two of his three wives are 1st generation immigrants. I suppose Donald Trump’s children could be deemed “anchor babies” if we are going by his rules…Oh, I forgot, those rules don’t apply to white Europeans….

Here is my suggestion, why don’t we give Trump a parcel of land similar to what was “given” to the Native Americans. We can go ahead and call it a reservation. All those who fall into the following categories can live there:

  • KKK
  • Racist Whites of a lesser degree, but who still hate people of color
  • Anyone who uses the phrase “go back where you came from”
  • Tea Party 
  • Ignorant bigoted rednecks 

Once there, they can elect Trump as their president and he is WELCOME  to build his wall around their land. In fact I’d dare say, many of us would help him build it.

So again, just so we are clear and I might spend a little less of each day moving forward attempting to educate the ignorant:

  • This is not your” country
  • You will soon be the minority
  • Please please read a history book!

One more thing, you already are the minority when it comes to state of mind. The love, acceptance and knowledge we share will always triumph over your hate and ignorance.
