AMERICA IS FALLING INTO THE TRAP OF DIVIDE AND CONQUER

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/08/23/america-falling-trap-divide-conquer/

Many Americans are also merely pawns as it relates to 'fighting THEM'.     E.g. Iran -  they are no threat to US (the USA),  so why do so many Americans feel it is necessary to fight THEM? 

Of course the Iranian leadership sows hate of the USA for political gain,  just like many politicians in the USA sow the hate of Iran for political gain creating a self-fulling prophesy for both.

If a mixed race Trevor Noah was a Crime at Birth in Apartheid South Africa,

Then it looks as though just being black in America apparently is also a crime at birth.

I assume you believe that these type of racial incidences are increasing but there is no data to support this.   Instead what could be happening is that people are feeling more empowered to report such incidences.   E.g. a #MEtoo type phenomenon.     

I haven't heard anyone suggest that there is more sexual harassment of women today then there was, say,  25 years ago,  but clearly due to the movement women feel more empowered to report such incidences (and note that most of them occurred years if not decades ago).

Therefore the end result of the Trump lead \ Trump supporter racism will be that the racist are exposed and condemned (which most members of the GOP are doing, expect for racism Trump and his closes allies),  and this will lead to less racism.    (well we can hope, can't we!).

It is on some occasions. Sad. The woman saying she was worried because the Native

American students were "too quiet" reminds me of old TV westerns where they would sit

around the campground and worry that it was just too darn quiet out there.

For pregnant women, your race may determine your standard of care

Across the U.S., black women are three to four times more likely to die in childbirth than their white counterparts. It's a problem that starts at the top, says Hakima Tafunzi, who describes her early years as a former labor and delivery nurse "soul crushing."....

Yeah, looks like maybe good old Waffle House needs a Come to Jesus moment as much as Starbucks.

A white woman called the police on a black family while they were setting up for a day at the park. Their crime, according to the unidentified woman, was barbecuing in one of the park’s designated barbecue zones using a charcoal grill.

This confused man thinks it is 1948, or maybe even 1958-- he must be a time traveler who just got lost and is trying to get back to the past.

The truth is - - racism is Un-American.

It has to do with BBQing with charcoal and burning wood - a law that is BS!

That cell phone video makes a great companion piece to the other one from the last couple of days in another coffee shop with the white guy freaking out about a Muslim woman in the store.

Keith Boykin Retweeted Shaun King

Of course, the white guy who harassed Spanish-speaking staff at Fresh Kitchen in New York City donated to Donald Trump's campaign. Trump's racism and xenophobia has opened the doors for white-collar bigots like Aaron Schlossberg to come out of the closet.

What’s particularly troubling is that Aaron Schlossberg is an educated NYC attorney. The white lady who called the police on a black family for having a barbecue got her PhD at Stanford. Education apparently does not confer the most basic humanity.

Before Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States he earned a PhD from John Hopkins University and later became President of Princeton University. He's one good example, and I'm sure there are many more.

If the election of Trump is compelling some of his racist supporter to come out of the closet,  that is a good thing.

Being exposed only reduces their ability to practice racism in the future.

Update on this situation-- the white man in question is Aaron Schlossberg, a New York City lawyer. As a result of this event, the lawyer has been evicted from his law office high rise building and a congressman has filed a complaint against him.

Also he has been found to be a serial racist offender. Just like the Yale graduate student who called the police on the napping black graduate student in the dorm, he's a repeat serial racist offender with video online to prove it.
