At this point, saying that most Trump voters are racist is so commonly understood, it doesn’t even seem like it’s necessary to say another word on it. However, it’s still shocking to see just how racist they can be.
“I voted for him because I thought the blacks were getting on too much,” said Kevin Forester of Chattanooga, Tennessee. “I mean they’re everywhere. There was one in the White House, you see them all over ESPN. And you can’t move to a neighborhood to escape them,” he said.
These concerns that Black Americans have rights isn’t limited to Tennessee. Curtis Jennings of Little Rock eagerly voted for Trump because he feared that minorities had “too many rights” and “would outpace white men.”
“There used to be a time when white men were guaranteed good jobs,” said Jennings. “Now you have to compete with blacks, Mexicans, and women. And the women have the nerve to get mad when we say they have nice tits? Look at what happened to poor Bill O’Reilly?”
Yes. Poor Bill O’Reilly sexually assaulted several women and was fired from Fox News even after they helped pay to cover it up. He retired with a golden parachute so big, it has its own sexual assault allegations.
For Emma Green, who cited data from a Public Religion Research Institution survey, the changing demographics of America are terrifying.
“Nearly two-thirds of the white working class say American culture has gotten worse since the 1950s. Sixty-eight percent say the U.S. is in danger of losing its identity, and 62 percent say America’s growing number of immigrants threaten the country’s culture. More than half say discrimination against whites has become just as problematic as discrimination against minorities,” said Green.
By “discrimination against whites,” she’s referring to Jennings issue—for a lot of white Trump voters, the idea that they aren’t guaranteed a job just for being white is discrimination. While yes, they’ve worked hard their entire lives, these White Americans are facing competition, supposedly for the first times in their lives. And instead of becoming better workers, they want Trump to make sure minorities are oppressed. The only thing missing is one of them calling for the reinstating of slavery.
