Trump Don’t Give a Damn About People of Color

They march in all dressed in black. Protective masks covering their faces, making them anonymous. Shields are up. Guns in hand locked and loaded as 800,000 shades of brown people are paraded through major airports in the US. You ask yourself, where am I? Because the country you grew up in, the country that you love would never do a mass deportation. In America, all people were created equal. We protect the innocent. We accept the downtrodden. This country was built with a Hodge podge of immigrants coming together collectively making the US strong.

As you may know yesterday, Trump called to end the DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals) Program also known as Dreamers Program. This act was brought about by President Obama in 2012 to protect the children illegal immigrants. These children were here because of their parents’ illegal activity – not their own. The premise of the program was to prevent transcending the sins of the parent onto the child. It required the participants be either working, in school or in the military and 95% of these participants are doing just that. They are productive citizens (yes, I used the word citizen on purpose) in the US economy as a matter of fact one report states that deporting them would result in a half trillion loss to the economy.

What kind of world are we living in? “President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind DACA is contrary to our spirit, and to common sense” President Barack Obama. These are human beings that Trump is playing political football with. They matter! But of course, he doesn’t care. He doesn’t know what it feels like to be uprooted, displaced and struggling to make a living. He’s never had to struggle for anything. Hell, he never had to truly believe in anything that money couldn’t fix or buy. He’s not a representative of the people, the spirit of America. Trump is only a representative of the good old boys who want to keep America White. What more do we need to see? Trump don’t give a damn about people of color!!

Until next time…Enjoy the journey!
