Trumped Up

Kudos to Donald Trump

Like Sarah Palin before him, he’s getting the GOP fired up. The media won’t leave him alone. Enigmatic, bombastic, (choose your adjective), but newsworthy (at least in today’s subjective news environment).

News has always been about ‘if it bleeds it leads’. Sensationalism sells papers, prime-time, whatever. Just kind of bummed that it’s so hard to find an objective news source.

Clearly, owners of major media outlets lean.

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

Trump is a study in 2016 politics.

Louis Farrakhan said

“Mr. Trump is tearing away the skin of the onion of white civility and the more he pulls the skin of that onion back, he’s beginning to show something in the character of the whites that follow him, that they don’t care what he says.”

Absolutely true.

I’m white (although with any luck, more beige in summer). I see it.

I heard the racist jokes, euphemisms, mind-set, growing up. Because I looked a certain way.

The white-folk trusted me.

I grew up in a color blind house.

My parents were jazz musicians and people in my house were judged on the level of their talent. period.

I wasn’t aware that I was supposed to hate black people until 1st grade.

By then it was too late.

I already knew if you’re human, you’re human, duh..
