White People Are Fed Up With Trump, Too

The hashtag #WhitesAgainstTrump was trending during the Republican presidential debate Tuesday night and showed that many white people are over his racist antics.

Published December 16, 2015

Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign—which has played out more like circus—has been full of hate speech that has outraged LatinosMuslim communities. It also included a meeting with Black pastors in an attempt to gain African-American voters, who he believes love him enough to give him 100 percent of their vote.

At first Trump was being painted as just a clown that no one took seriously, but as he continues to lead in Republican polls and gain followers who incite violence at his rallies, it's apparent that this is no longer a joke and may only get worse.

With that said, even white people are coming forth to express their disgust with the presidential candidate using the Twitter hashtag #WhitesAgainstTrump, which was trending during the Republican presidential debate Tuesday night. A user named Heather Bentley began the trending topic on Dec. 9. She wrote the following:

On Monday, Black comedian and writer W. Kamau Bell further enouraged this discourse, demanding in a Facebook status that "white people come and get your boy." On Salon, Bell wrote about some of the responses he received. By Tuesday night, Trump was back in front of America's television screens and white people really could no longer allow silence on Trump's racism and officially threw him under the bus.
