Trump is doing everything he can to enable racists--and get them to vote.

Emmett Till’s black, broken body was plucked from the Tallahatchie River in Mississippi days after his killing in August 1955, a heavy cotton gin fan tied on his neck with barbed wire.

It took 19 days for two white men, Roy Bryant and his brother-in-law J.W. Milam, to be acquitted of murder by an all-white jury, which deliberated for less than an hour.

Then it took 52 years for historical markers to be erected at locations related to the teenager’s death, which galvanized the civil rights movement after the acquittal.

And now, at the spot marking where Till’s body was pulled from the river, it took just 35 days since installation for a replacement sign to be pierced by gunfire. Again.

Till was lynched, shot and tortured before his death, and a grim trail of his final moments is marked by signs installed by the Emmett Till Interpretive Center, a museum supported by Tallahatchie County.

But the sign — the third iteration after the first was stolen and the second was destroyed by gunfire — apparently was pierced by four bullets on July 26, five weeks after it was dedicated, center co-founder Patrick Weems said.


The marker has drawn visitors to the site outside Glendora, Miss., the final stop on a civil rights movement driving tour across the Mississippi Delta.

It has also become a beacon for racist expressions of violence, and a signal that work toward justice and equality remains unfinished, Weems told The Washington Post on Sunday.

“We didn’t deal with the root reasons in 1955. And we’re still having to deal with that,” Weems said. “The same systems that allowed these signs to be vandalized are the same systems that allowed Emmett Till to be murdered.”


In the South? Really? The red states?

That's a tall claim that can't come close to the racist that the New York Times just hired. Their (NYT) explanation, 'How can a minority be a racist? They have no power.' pffft
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE WHITE TO BE A RACIST!
The grey lady is dying, in a poor attempt to stay relevant.
Tone deaf.

Joe: Attacking black athletes is part of Trump’s pre-midterms strategy

Quote:
Donald Trump's attack on LeBron James isn't just hot air, Joe Scarborough says, it's actually part of the president’s strategy heading into the midterms. “It’s what Donald Trump thinks, and he’s told his staff members. Basically, attacking black athletes, ‘that’s really good for me.'"

trump the racist... again if no lawsuit is filed because he says he will sue any liar, and he has the money to do so without it affecting his pocketbook. Well if he doesn't we can assume it its the truth. Lets see if he tweets, we know he loves his tweets.

Don Lemon Taunts Donald Trump Over Broken ‘Hiring The Best People’ Vow

Quote:
President Donald Trump repeatedly promised on the campaign trail to build his administration with the very “best people.”

But on Wednesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” host Don Lemon broke down why he believes “it hasn’t exactly turned out that way.”

To illustrate his point, Lemon ― who Trump attacked over Twitter last week ― noted some of Trump’s hires have become embroiled in scandal in recent months ― including former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price.

trump can have them released at any time.... he is stopping them from being released. notice he has not said it is a lie.... and not suing Omarosa...

So again he is the only one stopping them from release.

if he tweets it is a lie, then lawsuits can be started by Omarosa. And they can be forced to be released in discovery... hence he cannot lie like usual....

hahahaha

Omarosa talks Donald Trump with Rev. Al Sharpton, in for Joy Reid. The former White House staffer said the president is in her mind a racist, and wants to start a race war, while promoting her new book, 'Unhinged.'

trump plays to his racist base because he is in legal trouble at home.... again shoring up his hate base so they know even as a criminal he has their main hate racism covered. One of the major core issues more important that being a criminal.

the gov of South Africa replied to trumps racism...

Trump tweets about South Africa; South Africa responds

Quote:
The president also had some time for South African race politics this week when he waded into the issue of "South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers."
