New York Times Writer Asks “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?”
What do you think when you hear the phrase ‘Trump’s America’?
Many leftists have painted Trump’s America as the end for America. The Washington Post’s latest slogan reads “Democracy dies in darkness.” The Washington Post has even written three whole articles about their latest motto. One article expresses the mixed feelings from people on the motto while the other suggests that “maybe democracy dies in broad daylight.”
Through this sensationalism they want people to be scared. They want us to see President Donald Trump as a evil tyrant. They want us to forget that even if that were true, we have a powerful constitution and natural rights to hold back tyranny. They want us to forget that they are the same people who gave our previous president that power. They want you to feel as if Trump’s America is the end times. The end is nigh.
This is not just another presidential term. This is our first truly evil president. Forget about John Adams and his Alien & Sedition Acts. or Andrew Jackson the Trail of Tears, or even the eugenics-loving Woodrow Wilson. No, we should be afraid of Donald J. Trump. And it goes even beyond that, people should be afraid of white people. Even children.
In Trump’s America ‘can my children be friends with white people?’ is a legitimate question.
This is just a snapshot of the polarization we see in this upside down America. It has to always be ‘us versus them’ in every single fight. Just because you disagree with Donald Trump on policy, all white people are suddenly evil. This makes us weaker. This hurts the country. This constant outrage has only one ending; that is civil war. And I am not trying to be alarmist. I don’t actually believe there is a civil war on the horizon.
This is more of a social civil war. Free speech is trapped in the middle of a tug of war between the left and the right. In this war of ideas, the word ‘racism’ is thrown around by the very same people who ask themselves ‘ can my children be friends with white people?’
The writer of this article states that he will “teach [his] boys to have profound doubts that friendship with white people is possible.” Is that really what’s best for America? Is that really how to fix this country?
These are not the kinds of ideas we need to be supporting. This is an ignorant mindset that only damages our ability to work together for the greater good of America. We are going to have disagreements on policy. As humans, we all have our own ideas that will likely conflict with one another. It is fine and probably best to be friends with those who are from different walks of life than you. Build friendships with anyone you feel as if you can connect to. We are not defined by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character.
