Is a Teacher or Principal
Who Supports Donald Trump
able to
Educate Black Kids?


"I can’t see how Trump-backing educators 
sincerely want to 'enlighten' students
of color.  I don’t believe the 21st century
'Archie Bunker' slice of the American pie,
that demographic legitimately has Black and
Brown people’s 'best interest' at heart."

Can a public school principal have the “best” interest of Afro-American students at heart, and still back a man, President Donald Trump, who’s backed by the Klan?

Can someone be “pro” KKK and also be “Pro” black people?

Can you support Donald Trump’s mission, support his quest to “make America White again,” and simultaneously believe-in and bring-to-life “Black empowerment,” i.e., Black Power?

Can you believe in both . . . ? No, hell no!

Can you want to “tar n’ feather,” black NFL players like Colin Kaepernick and Marshawn Lynch, while turning a deaf-ear and-blind-eye to a serial pedophile like Alabama Klansman Roy Moore . . . because he’s a Klansman? And the tar . feather analogy is no stretch, let’s be honest - If Trump were slave owner in a previous Confederate life - he was a “mean, nasty, vile, horrid, malicious beastly bastard” who was cruel to his human property and raped Black female slaves with impunity. Sorry, that’s just my opinion.

Please if he’s walking around today “grabbing Pussies” what do you think he did in his other life to black women at his disposal . . . who weren’t deemed fully human? It’s along the lines of “you can’t rape a whore” thus, in 1855 you couldn’t, as a White man, rape a Black woman. Ask Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones about black girls: Jones was asked to offer his congratulations to a couple who either were recently were engaged or married. “Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding. Now, you know he’s with a black girl tonight, don’t you?” Jones says in the video before walking away, laughing . . . of course the people he was addressing were white.

I’m sure his aristocratic chum, Lord Trump feels the same.

I know, nobody wishes to talk about it.

The butt-naked truth: the US is a bitterly divided land, obviously and undeniably racially polarized: Americans of color: Afro, Latino, Native and Asian stand on one side, pitted against the vast-overwhelming majority of European-American men and most of “their” (personal possession) mindless/spineless, battered women on the other side. This monolithic hate-group, backed President Trump and his lily white monotone message to “take-back” America and “make it White again . . .”

Understanding this level of “good ol’” white racism is now openly the lay-of-land makes it an extremely naive, and self-destructive move, detrimental and counter-to the well-being of black Americans to any longer entrust our child’s education, the critical “enlightenment process,” e.g., their future, to a segment of society - Trump’s white America, which appears to be so-very “indifferent” if not hostile towards virtually all Americans of color.

Aren't we all hoping Trump is dumb enough to want to continue his “playing the dozens” on Twitter with Lavar Bell . . . Bell’s gonna hurt his little feelings.

Okay, let’s not bullshit here, we’re talking about our kids . . . and what we know is White doctors, cops, mental and physical therapist, nurses and dentist devalue black children, much, much . . ., much more that they do white kids. They’ve quite more empathy, understanding, respect, compassion and high expectations for White kids. I can’t count the vast number of surveys and numerous polls which indicate white medical staff perceive black kids to either be “tougher” or “faking” their pain - so they prescribe fewer pain killers, present fewer medical options and recommend more-simplistic, or risky medical services for black children. And there’s little argument the white cop has less “everything” for black kids and undeniably harbors a much more intolerant and indifferent, if not hostile mentality when dealing with black kids.

So, somebody, white preferably, tell me “how” I’m being overly sensitive and needlessly paranoid when entrusting my child’s educational well-being with . . . you people.

You people who struggle to determine if black people are . . . people.

You people who believe the only racism and discrimination in America is leveled at innocent, always “hard-working,” “god-fearing,” machine gun toting’ white folks. You Trumpeters who believe slavery was a “good thing” and black folks are innately inferior and sub-par in all matters and ways which matter.

I’m fluent in “Redneck-ish . . .”

You Trumpeters, the now obviously not-too far removed descendants of the white folks photographed throughout US history who’re smiling, laughing, eating ice cream and singing songs while black bodies, sometimes those of black women and children hang in the background, lynched by a murderous lynch mob of ”good, decent white folks. . . and I’m to dismiss the opinion, the stark possibility you hate black people. Please!!!

It would be comical if it wasn’t so pathetic but Trump’s America has a severe case of “CSA,” “Convenient/Selective amnesia” and don’t recall the “story of the United States of America.” Instead of what should be “white guilt,” a feeling of responsibility, liability and accountability for one's actions, WASP popular culture unquestionably maintains an intense amount of animosity, hostility and I’d submit blind hatred for black and brown people. They deceivingly brand themselves “victims of reverse racism” which is about as prevalent in the US as white Unicorns and black leprechauns.

Do you believe white folks would in-trust their child's fate, their academic destiny and socialization process to Black folks? Now mind you, black folks who voted for the devil himself, President Obama, however we black Americans harbor no qualms about entrusting our black children’s fate, safety, welfare, education and socialization to white folks, white folks who back this President . . . who the Klan backs. Under the present-day societal conditions . . . how can any public school teacher, dean, school psychiatrist or, yes even a principal support and favor Donald Trump . . . and still be able to properly educate and counsel students of color? How, someone please enlighten me? I doubt, at the end of the day, when the school bell rings . . . they can, or for that matter have any real desire or inclination to do so.

I can’t see how Trump-backing educators sincerely want to “enlighten” students of color. I don’t believe the 21st century “Archie Bunker” slice of the American pie, that demographic legitimately has Black and Brown people’s “best interest” at heart. I don’t believe they honestly desire to educate black and tan students to the prolific point that those students “compete” with white students for spots in college, grad school, the workplace and ultimately the fabled but elusive “American Dream.”

In the end; how can a teacher or principal support Donald Trump and still be able to educate students of color? How can a teacher or administrator who voted-in Donald Trump - somehow have the same concerns and goals for black students that most black parents, teachers, administrators, academicians and the core of Afro-American intellectuals across the land maintain for our black children?
