I wonder if the group of Black “clergy” that gathered for KellyAnne Conway to take a picture of them with President Trump are happy with the payment in full they just received from President Trump? I’m not a big believer in “race” but I am a big believer in “racists” and “racism”. I’m also a big believer in “colorblindness”.
In a signing statement on the $1.1 trillion omnibus government spending bill, Trump singled out the Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program as an example of provisions in the funding bill “that allocate benefits on the basis of race, ethnicity, and gender.”
Donald Trump is colorblind when it comes to race. Completely and totally colorblind. Which is why Donald Trump is a racist. His colorblindness allows him to ignore the very real disparities in our society based on an individual’s “racial orientation” which is more commonly referred to as “race”. That ignorance causes him to perpetuate those disparities by simply ignoring their existence and their reliance on racial orientation as the determining factor.
Many of my friends are colorblind. They proudly proclaim it. And, like President Trump, they are racist and practice racism. They believe they don’t because they NEVER (almost never) use the “N” word. I’d rather they scream NIGGER from the tallest mountain than continue to be colorblind.
In America, colorblindness kills.
