The Huffington Post: Why Donald Trump’s Victory Terrifies Some Of Your Ethnic Minority Friends

The Huffington Post: Why Donald Trump’s Victory Terrifies Some Of Your Ethnic Minority Friends

by Matt Mikalatos


"Listen, Trump says racist things. This is not media spin. This is not liberal politicking. This is objective fact.

You might recall how he refused to disavow the Ku Klux Klan until there was a public outcry against it, saying he would need to some research about white supremacy and David Duke (he later claimed a defective earpiece). He called Gonzalo Curiel (born in Indiana) “a Mexican” and said as a result he was unable to do his job (a comment Republican Paul Ryan called the “textbook definition of a racist comment”). He has a pattern of discrimination against African Americans in his companies and has said things like “laziness is a trait in blacks.” Listen, this could fill an article itself, and without going into his “dog whistle” comments."
