On Thursday (Jan.11), it was unveiled that Donald Trump made some comments behind closed door relating to immigration. Trump expressed, how he would prefer immigrants from Norway instead of sh*thole countries like Haiti and other African countries.
I don't know which era President Donald Trump is living in but it is not his father's nor forfather's era, time has changed. And Donald Trump needs to wake up and smell the coffee, black coffee that is. That strong coffee and get it together.
You have to wonder if Donald Trump does these outlandish and polluted things for attention or if that's just who he is.
Is this America's raw truth, a racist president. And there has been others like Donald Trump but the difference is their racist skeletons were held in the closet.
And this is the positive in the negative, this is the leverage and the advantage because Donald Trump makes other racist people comfortable, that they unmask themselves. Donald Trump's presidency and his outlandish, controversial behaviors centering racism reveals the elephant in the room. And it can not be swept under the rug.
So, it brings these uncomfortable conversations about racism to the table, it reveals the nature of racism and how it is still prevalent even in 2018. It displays how other White Americans agree with Donald Trump and Trump is the poster child for them, he says what they don't have the balls to say; and Donald Trump's presidency reveals how racism never went away and whatever was masked about it, is now being unmasked.
As racism continues to unmask itself, it is so important for melanin people, Black people to continue and remain in their excellence. Be confident in who they are and all that they are in the face of racism, injustice, bigotry; and stereotype.
Let Black Excellence be that shift in eradicating racism.
When they call you a n*gger, monkey and refer to Black countries as "shithole" countries to intently and with motives to bring you down or try to what I call "psychological warfare" to try to convince you that you are not worthy because of your skin color. They bring you down because of the power within you.
Hunny, that's when you have to go out into the sun and see how much you glow and shine just like the sun, give yourself a hug, look within yourself and find that excellence and be that! Black excellence that is.
There's an irony to Donald Trump's recent racial controversy. I find it very ironic how the day before President Donald Trump signs this proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Trump incites chaotic energy in the air with his racist and outlandish comments.
It makes you wonder what was the reason, the true intent. Like "what's really good Trump?"
The next day (Jan. 12), Donald Trump signs a proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, a man who stood up and spoke out against people like President Donald Trump. Against racism and all it's tactics.
There's so much irony in it, that it is undeniable.
Tsk, tsk, tsk Donald Trump.
May you be more mindful of your words and their impact.
