With the one-year anniversary of the presidential election, protesters have come out in droves to ask the world, again, "Whose mans is this in office?" Donald Trump has managed to annoy, aggravate and otherwise piss off people of just about every creed and color since assuming office (*heavy-ass sigh*). Despite being tasked with representing all Americans, here are some of the ways he's managed to disrespect the Black community:
Even in light of the numerous killings of unarmed Black people at the hands of law enforcement, Trump tells police not to be "too nice." Granted, this is said in the context of arresting gang members. However, it shows a complete lack of tact, if not disregard for the current state of relations between the police and the Black community.
What he's saying about these luminaries, particularly Frederick Douglass, is like when the teacher calls on you, and you try to talk like you know the answer. Trump should've done his homework on this one.
On the surface, calling a presidential meeting with the heads of historically black colleges and universities around the U.S. is an act worthy of praise. But in actuality, some of the institutions' leaders feel this was nothing more than a gesture with no weight or value.
Right, because all Black people know each other...
It's almost unbelievable. It's like Trump has always had a few too many drinks and will say the most disrespectful thing that comes to mind. This comment was in response to NFL playing kneeling during the national Anthem in protest against police brutality. Completely tasteless commentary.
These instances don't even begin to count every disrespectful thing Trump has done to the Black community in his lifetime. Luckily, Robin Thede spits some super hot fire and goes through a full chronology of the the instances of his disrespect. Check it out in the video above.
