Donald Trump Personifies The Well-Dressed Klansmen Hank Aaron Spoke Of . . . .
US historians will analyze the role real estate tycoon Donald Trump played in the lynchmob/witch-hunts which will have erroneously dogged President Barack Obama through his two-term presidency, and “The Donald” may very well be the high-light of the “Boy, I say boy . . . let me see your papers Negra . . . “ saga which has played out in front of the globe..
Trump is a man who has contended ”I have a great relationship with the blacks . . .’ I sure can’t say that statement holds any water after what Trump has said and who he has politically gotten in bed with . . . well dressed KKK members to sabotage and undermine this President. And clearly I don’t believe he can even claim to have some blood-brother connection with some mythical monolithic group . . . The Blacks.
I’m not shocked that the NFL owners cartel has no issues or qualms welcoming Trump at the Royal pigskin table – these plantation owners were willing to bring Republican TEA Party Grand Poo-Pah Rush Limbaugh into the league. I well understand this snow-White elitist country club embraces racist, but I am a tad taken-aback at how they evidently feel Blacks are so simple-minded that we’re mindless of working with and for bigots. As well as Black sportsfans, wordsmiths and pundits would sit quietly by and let this man become a NFL owner.
This whole Donald Trump scene smells of Django Unchained – plantation owners like Leonardo DiCaprio’s character amassing a stable of Mandingos to entertain and enrich themselves further beyond their fatcat status.
Lord Trump, and this is trifling, yet while being a filthy-rich celebrity, and little more, Trump managed to lend, dig this credibility and legitimacy to the assorted Rednecks who’ve been chasing this president since day one trying to delegitimize his presidency by any means ”I have people that have been studying [Obama's birth certificate] and they cannot believe what they’re finding… I would like to have him show his birth certificate, and can I be honest with you, I hope he can. Because if he can’t, if he can’t, if he wasn’t born in this country, which is a real possibility…then he has pulled one of the great cons in the history of politics.”
These words were calculated, deliberate and strategic, designed to start a fire, perhaps even motivate or prompt some good ol’ boy to “take matters into their own hands” and end an illegitimate presidency.
Trump risked all that . . . to score Whitey points with Rednecks.
And now today he wants to assemble a professional club of gridiron gladiators predominantly ebony gladiators to work for him . . . he’ll make ga-zillions and they’ll make thousands . . . sounds like a 21st century plantation to many.
My next step is to fire off an email to the Fritz Pollard organization and the NAACP requesting they put some teeth n’ weight into stopping the NFL owners from extending an invite to a man who was but steps away from perhaps triggering race riots had he got his way in impeaching President Obama.
Additionally and unquestionably their Tea Party/Birther charges declaring this President is from Saturn were false, yet Trump rode with these quasi Neo-Confederates, and now he wants to lead Black men into battle to secure for him even more millions . . . .
His arrogance verges on delusional as well as insulting to the Blacks.
I well understand the NFL is content to rationalize, minimize and even justify the term of endearment - “Redskins,” and the league would rather pretend to play the role of Big White brother/Great White Father and chastise Blacks for ignorantly tossing around the world “Nigger,” however it seems more relevant the league owners police themselves and not allow into their ranks a racist elitist who’d be doing little more than pimping and exploiting a segment of US society he does not like nor respect.
Black men ought not be coerced into working for a racist bastard like Trump.
Donald Trump is the personification of the well-dressed Klansmen, the entrenched, deeply embedded racism Major League Baseball’s Hammerin’ Hank Aaron recently spoke of . . . and was soundly lambasted for even declaring existed in today’s color-blind America.
