On the Behalf Of
All Americans of Color
Thank You Mr Trump


"Trump's told the burning bush truth,
at least the Euro-American’s version
of current affairs, and I thank him
for that honesty, be it based
in arrogance or ignorance."

On the behalf of all Americans of color, every single one of us . . . I’d like to tender to Donald J. Trump a sincere and heartfelt “thank you” for playing a critical role in exposing the “true” colors of most, surely not all, but clearly most White folks.

Most. That's a lot.

Lord Trump, thank you for putting a orange face and voice to 21st-century “White Nationalism,” i.e., good ol’ 19th-century “Confederatism.” Thank you for providing a stage for your like-minded supporters to voice and display their distaste of everyone who isn't a White man. Trump’s brought out the Confederated-minded Redneck seemingly embedded in much of White America.

The Blacks love me” . . . White-man please!

Ok, sure I could make the argument America’s new emerging mosaic majority could/should be thanking President Obama, because it was his Presidency which has pushed Trump’s “Silent Majority” off the proverbial cliff of deceit, into the valley of honesty. However I’d argue it’s Lord Trump’s willingness, his aristocratic audacity to articulate what the rank n’ file White person is thinking, but is unwilling to utter in mixed company.

Trump’s revived and revamped Reagan's infamous Philadelphia Mississippi message; Make America Great/White again.

Over 35 years ago, 1980, I was optimistic the Ronnie “666” Ray-Gun White backlash Presidency would provide the 2:37 AM wake-your-ass-up call Black America needed to hear in 1980 - for we were an “adrift,” “rudderless,” people coming out of the 1970’s, but for a vast array of reasons Black America did not wake up as the Last Poets were begging we do. Black America’s situation has gotten obviously worst.

Additionally, on behalf of women, I'd like to say thank you to Lord Trump, he’s articulated the medieval mindset most meatheads on the philosophical “Right” maintain; women should be controlled, rewarded and punished for not adhering to White males wishes and whims which they’ve camouflage as God’s word in Ted Cruz’s “good book.”

Now, to hear the white man’s perspective, they’re the only Americans who truly love and respect human life - while most Jezebel minded women don’t. And only White men can serve as the sole unemotional arbitrators of race-related issues, only he can render an unbiased, objective, impartial race neutral opinion on issues from Affirmative Action to workplace discrimination to police brutality, only he can.

Ain't that a bitch?

See, for almost the last half-century White people, particularly men have pretended to be enlightened or even ‘cured,” made “colorblind” and no-longer “see” skin-color, nor for that matter do they see gender, race, or class as a factors or variables in determining one's weight, worth or measure.

Gee, what a change.

Undoubtedly we’ve all had to endure listening to some shape, form or manner of this hollow, shallow ludicrous WASP company-line for decades, but due to Conservatives losing their goddamn minds, having to endure over a decade of Black-rule, (doesn't that have a beautiful ring to it – Black-rule - we’ve this “real” American revolt we’re in the midst of, which has given life to Donald Trump's candidacy.

Trump, spurred-on and emboldened by his inherent pompous country club conceitedness has exposed the “real” White man - what he would say and do if he could. Nonetheless the emperor has on no clothes. Donand has, in all reality stripped-down butt-naked, baring, divulging mainstream White America’s heartless heart n’ soul-less soul, for all the world to see. Trump has emotionally elaborated on issues White politicians usually only give cold, indifferent, unemotional canned replies to.

Trump's told the burning bush truth, at least the Euro-American’s version of current affairs, and I thank him for that honesty, be it based in arrogance or ignorance.

The Don has overpowered and out-talked the slightly more “polite” White men, who feel virtually the same way, but based on a lack of gumption . . . they’ve been forced-to take their klan robe off while in public, Trump don’t give a damn. That’s why the police, military folk and the Klan love him. Black folks have made the argument this alliance, the “WASP trinity” has existed for centuries, and we’ve been told we were paranoid and blaming others for our own shortcomings, but now we know what we always knew to be true

Thank you King Trump, for not giving a damn.

Additionally, on behalf of Latino-Americans, American-Muslims, Asian-Americans,thank you Mr Trump. Without Trumps arrogance, his unbridled, audacity to tell the angry White people's truth - we’d all still have to walk around “pretending,” “playing-along-with” the ridiculous notion White people ”liked” us. Now we know millions upon millions of White Americans want to erect walls and export Brown and Black people, now we know.

Now we ain't gotta, never no-more do we have to act as if “White hatred” which manifest itself in discrimination, bias and favoritism is a mere figment of a Black or Brown person’s childish imagination, because that’s the GOP gibberish they've been trying to tell us all these years. There’s no discrimination in housing/education/banking/ employment or health care - people of color just don’t muster-up to the high-standards of White folks.
