Like many well-meaning left-leaning white people, I woke up yesterday in a state of utter shock. I’d honestly never even considered the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency: Surely, he was far too out there to ever be taken seriously by anyone other than the most bigoted Right Wingers. Surely there can’t be that many blatantly racist misogynists in our country.
Clearly, I was wrong. In a big way. Overwhelmingly and across the board, white people voted for Trump.
White people of all education levels. White people of all income levels. And yes, even white women overwhelmingly chose him over Clinton.
White people, Donald Trump is our monster.
So this blog post is for you. It’s for us. White people, it’s time for us to collect our people and align ourselves with the struggle to dismantle white supremacy once and for all.
