I AM SHOCKED that Hate Won!
All morning I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out what we are going to do now that Trump is in charge. Those of you old enough to remember how things were for minorities 60 plus years ago know what’s up and here we are again. I am so HAPPY that I am not in the classroom having to deal with all of the vile, hateful, racist words and actions that minority students will be faced with having Trump as our leader. Before the election the minority children were being teased and abused by white students and now it will be sanctioned and praised. All that talk educators gave about no bullies and now we have the biggest bully as our leader. Yes, the kids are watching.
I truly thought that HATE would not win yet it has and I have not prepared for all of the things to come. After the concern about our kids and grandkids my next thought was what about banking, social security, privatization of prisons. I am still traumatized by the chain gangs I saw as a child. The prisons will be overflowing in a few years with minorities back onto the “new plantations.” Working for the prison systems, inmates getting little to no money, while the owners rake in the profits.
Today, hate and fear are ruling this nation and the world is watching us. I guess I should have learned Russian since Trump and Putin will be in charge now. These young minority people are not going to go silently to the back of the bus and be taken out by the police without protest. This nation is going to be HELL on EARTH and not just for minorities but for stupid white folks that think that Trump loves them because of their skin. They will soon find out that he will do to this country (including them) the same thing he has done to his businesses…bankrupt the nation and go off laughing. I hope that some of the minority big shots and caring white folks will come up with suggestions as to how to solve the upcoming problems. I need concrete ideas and suggestions such as; only travel in groups, always have a camera on with live footage going to a remote location but then no one will care so, I want concrete ideas.
Welcome back, Jim Crow, KKK, and all of the dirty past injustices from our history which will run amuck until we are at a full-sized race war. History may not repeat itself but it sure will rhyme all the way back to lynching and no pretense of impartiality.
Peace and watch your backs. There will be no minority safe now.
