The Trump White House's Actions Recall the Most Divisive Eras of the American Past

Dennis Parker

"Trump's attempt to turn back the clock on the most vulnerable communities has to be fought in the courts, in the statehouses, and on the streets."

From Merriam Webster Dictionary:

Definition of racism

1 :a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2 a :a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles
b :a political or social system founded on racism
3 :racial prejudice or discrimination

To which I’ll add my own sub-heading:

4: cowardice and overwhelming sense of one’s intrinsic inadequacy that must be compensated by the oppression of others (note this includes misogyny where women are viewed as another race (see Bible) to men, classism, etc.)
