TRUMP POLITICS OF RACE AND FLAGS. RACIST ATTACKS AND LYNCHING ON THE RISE IN THE US
Back in 2015, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump said the Confederate flag belongs in a museum. Now during an election year, Trump is at it again playing politics of Racial divide as Racist and police brutality increases in the United States. For the past three years, Racist attacks and Lynching have increased in the United States. Many experts attribute this increase to the Race tension that the president has continued to make worst.
Yesterday President Donald Trump lashed out at NASCAR’s only full-time Black driver on Twitter Monday morning, demanding he apologizes for an investigation into an apparent noose found in the driver’s garage. Wallace has been vocal about his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and pushed NASCAR to remove Confederate flags from all sanctioned events, a decision the company announced shortly before the crew member found the rope.
On Monday, facing a barrage of questions about Trump’s flag tweet, McEnany’s thick briefing book offered little of substance to defend the president’s latest foray into America’s racial divide.
“I spoke to him this morning on this, and he said that he was not making a judgment on this one way or the other,” she replied when asked why Trump was appearing to support the Confederate flag.
As reporters came back to the topic — and pressed McEnany on her claim that the president was taking a position of neutrality on the flag — she tried a few different approaches.
The ongoing Race tension in United States is becoming more evident and entering a dangerous stage as many white racist groups have increased their attacks on African Americans throughout the country. A prominent Black activist was attacked at Lake Monroe on July 4th by white men who tried to lynch him. Vauhxx Booker, 36 and a Bloomington human rights commissioner, is seen pinned to a tree by several men in a series of videos posted by him and witnesses on Facebook. Booker and at least one witness said that a man talked about getting a noose during the incident.
