White Supremacist America

White supremacists have been an issue for the United States since its inception. When “all men are created equal” was written into the Declaration of Independence apparently not everyone was in total agreement. It seems that some thought those words only applied to White Christians. Thus the alternate idea was written into our constitution when it was determined that Black slaves would count in the population as three-fifths of a person.  Chinese came to America to help build the railroads but were not granted citizenship.  Similarly Latin Americans were denied citizenship in the 1800s.

To this day millions of White Christian Americans believe they are superior to all other people. That belief is the source of discrimination in America today. It is not just discrimination against Black people. It is discrimination against all other races and religions.

Thus it is no surprise that the KKK and Nazi groups are flourishing in this country.

Donald Trump has evaluated this situation and placed a bet that there are enough White supremacists in this country to sustain his re-election in 2020. Therefore there is no need to condemn the riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. There is no need to condemn the KKK and Nazi groups.

Sadly I believe Mr. Trump has correctly come down on the side of the electoral majority. The message to all non-White and Non-Christian emigrants is ‘You are not welcome in America’. Oh! Wait! We will welcome you to do the jobs we consider beneath us.
