Blog Running – ‘I’m Experiencing Shocking New Levels of Racism: Welcome to Trump’s America’

Fantastic piece by Tina Vasques at The Guardian…..just a very small sample.

‘A couple of weeks ago, while I was running errands in my neighborhood, a stranger asked me if I was “illegal”.

‘Around 10 minutes earlier another stranger asked me if I spoke English’.

‘Both were white and one of them even called me “senorita.”

‘Then, late last week, I was standing in line to use the ATM when a white man approached me cautiously, asking if I spoke English’.

‘He was lost and said he didn’t want to be in a “bad area” longer than he needed to. He was holding a King Taco cup in his hand’.

‘I’ve seen white guys like him at the neighborhood taco spot’.

‘Stay for the tacos, leave before you have to interact with Mexicans who aren’t serving you’.

‘This is the world Trump wants when he says he’s going to “make America great again.”

It’s the America of 1950s TV shows, where people of color don’t exist in the lives of white Americans unless they’re being served or entertained by them’.

  • ‘This appears to be a world longed for by many, as a recent poll found that 47% of white Americans look upon Trump “favorably.”
