A Letter to Donald Trump, President of the United States
If you voted to elect Donald Trump as America’s President, you should be ashamed of yourself. Really.
Read my letter to President Donald Trump and leave a comment below to let me know whether you agree with me or not.
Dear Mr. President,
Today, the world is laughing at America.
Today, I am ashamed to have you as my president.
I am ashamed to say that we elected you, a bigot, racist, neo-nazi, white supremacist and KKK supporter to the most powerful office in the world.
Just when I thought you could not embarrass this nation any worse than you already did, just when I thought you could not sink any lower, you, sir, has managed to find a way to do both.
First, it took you longer than two days to timidly denounce a violent white supremacist group most Americans agree is hateful, racist and bigoted. Then, you came back and let us know how you really feel about Americans of color.
On Tuesday, You showed Americans your true, ugly self.
It’s easy for us to dismiss your press conference in New York as an aberration but it is not. It is also easy to assume that you were simply saying what your advisers told you to. You were not. You were telling us how you truly feel about those you consider less than, the “others.”
Sir, most decent Americans were appalled and disappointed over the weekend when you failed to call by name, white supremacists who instigated the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
But to hear you, Mr. Donald Trump offer a full-throated defense of that group whose main mission is to enslave America’s minorities, rape and murder minorities and turn back the clock in the nation’s march towards equality, was simply beyond the pale.
To hear you equate those who were protesting hate with those who perpetuate racism and hate is indecent, to say the least. Do you not know the difference?
You said that “not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch,” but the truth, sir, is that good decent people do not walk around chanting racist slogans. Decent people do not hate and kill other individuals just because they can.
Mr. Trump, what is good and decent about the KKK and neo-nazi? What is good about their mission or agenda?
You are the President of the United States. America is more than the White race. You have Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans. You have Jews, Muslims, Christians, Atheists and other groups, and sub-groups who must contend with racism and bigotry every day.
Sir, Americans ordinarily look up to the President of the United States everyday as the moral standard bearer and defender of ALL Americans regardless of race, color, creed, religion or sexual orientation.
Mr. President, how do I, as a Black man, look up to you knowing that in your heart you harbor hatred towards me and my family simply because of the color of our skin?
A beautiful American, 32-year-old Heather Heyer lost her life when she was mowed down by the car driven by one of those white supremacists you so enthusiastically endorse, support and promote.
Mr. President, can you please, explain to her parents how your love for white supremacists who killed her makes sense?
You said you “watched those very closely, much more closely than you people watched it, and you have- You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent.” Sir, did you really watch? Did you see what was actually going on?
You said “I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?”
Really, Mr. President? You think that it is appropriate to compare Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson to Presidents Washington and Jefferson? Do you really understand what each person did or stood for?
To say that I am disappointed in you is an understatement.
I know you, Mr. Trump may not consider people like me humans or perhaps, you believe we are still three-fifths of regular white men because of the color of our skin?
You are wrong, Mr. President. You and the white supremacists you love, endorse and support may feel that way, but it is not so.
I love this country of ours and what it stands for, and I hope that you will look inside your heart, that you will search your soul and understand that you were elected to represent ALL Americans, not just those who look like you.
Sir, think about the “others,” those who are different, those who are “less than.” You owe America, ALL America, that.
God bless you Mr. President and God bless The United States of America.
