So Donald Trump just selected Stephen Bannon as part of his administrative team and a close confidante in his political cabinet. The news media is a buzz with rhetoric of Bannons racist, anti semitic that he has made clear through his media organization Breitbart. I personally don’t see what the surprise is and I also refuse to sit here and have people try to pass the blame onto myself and other black people by saying that because we didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton that we let this racist Trump into office.
No, actually the real blame lies on a failed system that has played the people like pawns for far too long. The blame lies directly on the shoulders of white people who have never wanted to address the issues of racism, bigotry, discrimination and white skinned privilege that has run rampant in this country since its inception. And the reason white people have not wanted to address these issues is because they have benefitted profoundly from it. So please Black People, White People, Latino People and others take your blame game somewhere else. Because had you been taking care of business, dealing with the issues mentioned above, ridding this society of the same inequities that have plagued it since the land was stolen, had you been doing these things, then a guy like Donald Trump wouldn’t even have been a consideration for the presidency, and neither quite honestly, would a corrupt politician like Hillary Clinton.
