Race Politics: Pt. 1

It can be stressful to think about politics, but it’s a necessary part of our lives. It affects our economic and social lives. I hate seeing how split the world is. I live in the United States so you can imagine how difficult it must be to have a inexperienced celerity, Donald J. Trump, sitting in the highest seat that this country basically abides to. The presidency is an opportunity to do good unto the people, but instead it has become a conduit for white supremacy, racism, and prejudice.

Once Donald J. Trump entered the scene and opened the closet for all this hate to come out we are now, more than ever in our modern world, seeing the disgusting face of racism. Just a few days ago a group of White teenagers lynched an 8-year-old biracial child. Imagine being 8 years old and having no idea what the state of politics are. All you know is that you’re hanging from a tree by the end of a rope because these people, the White teenagers, want to harm you.

I know what some of you are saying, “Why you got to mention race”? In this case it is very important to express the races of these children because it is a circle of idealism that is being inherited from both sides. White children, depending on their parents, will be brought up in a bubble that serves them and the color of their skin. They live with a privilege that only people of color can understand because we are refrained from enjoying it. The 8-year-old biracial child suffers from the oppression his parents suffered and in turn learns about a system that is against him simply for being the color that he is.

That system is backed up by a societal standard that benefits White people above anyone else, even the so called “model minority” (We will get into this later). How can we possibly think that the governmental system helps people of color when the 3/5th Compromise, a legislation put in place that would help states that supported slavery gain more representation by counting their slaves as 3/5th of a person thus gaining more power in the then congress, is still in our constitution?

In the next post I will go into further explanation about White Supremacy, Racism, and Prejudice.
