With Donald Trump’s victory, the burden of having to pretend to not be a racist hypocrite has been lifted. How often do we white people have a friendly conversation with a black person only to whisper to a fellow white once the black person is out of earshot..”arrogant nigger or just another stupid nigger” Of course we will still not use that language overtly but with Trump in power we no longer have to feel guilty. We can cheer for the black athletes while they are on the field and then curse them under our breaths if they fail to make the play and of course never invite them to date our daughters or have dinner at our homes. To paraphrase what Chris Rock said, “I can be a smart nigger or a rich nigger…I’m still a nigger.”
Trump’s victory has also confirmed that woman need to know whose boss. Of course he lets them handle some secretarial work but his comments clearly make it obvious that their influence on him has its limits. It is not surprising considering that woman have accepted that role for thousands of years. Many of them are still not ready to free themselves from those shackles. After all, from Biblical times on a woman’s role was to provide an incubator to spawn a man’s son, that a daughter came out once in a while was just an inconvenience. Even god himself only had one son, no mention ever made that he had any daughters. So now that Trump is our leader we can continue to look at woman as sex objects who should be available at any time a man has a need, i.e. Roger Ailes at Fox. Let us not be confused that woman have strong needs for sexual satisfaction as well, but it’s only when they are in the mood and in agreement. That they have brains that are every bit as able as a man’s to achieve successes and failures is still a challenge. Of course they are able to use machinations for their own benefit as well. They are human.
As we will soon discover what most of us know in our hearts, Trump and his band of “merry gropers” will now celebrate their great fortune and achievement to be born with white skin, but the writing is on the wall. This celebration will be short-lived.
