There is a lot of racial tension going back decades in this country. I don't think it's fair to point out a group like this and say they are as common or as supported as Trump and his white power types. You can find examples with both presidents of people thinking it means their color is in charge. But with Trump there is always a silent nod to white power you don't see with Obama. He was black and other black people took that to mean something he was not a part of that is all. He never spoke of the hate Trump does in the guise of "not being politically correct".
I have noticed the right is still not over Obama. It's like they don't know what to do with themselves when he's gone. Trump coming up with this ridiculous phone tap thing proves it. His voters will believe it. You would think if it was true it would be the first thing he mentioned.
It's all a distraction because he's a fuck up with a fragile ego. And Obama can remain the ultimate enemy.
I had very high hopes for Obama, but he didn't deliver. He did whine about "inheriting" GW's problems for most of his administration, which was very disappointing. When you raise your hand to be president, you're clearly stating that you now own the problems of the nation. I was disappointed that he did nothing about the War on Drugs.
On the issue of "white power", where is it? For the last year the press has been screaming that Nazis, the KKK and I even heard a few claims about skinheads, all aligning and building a massive new force. Only, it never happened. I moved to Atlanta more than 15 years ago fully expecting to see klansmen on every corner, racist cops beating black people downtown and weekly cross burnings. I was absolutely wrong. In fact, the most vocal racism you hear in Atlanta comes primarily from black people. But I'm told their hate is "justified".
As for the video, can you imagine if those boys had been white, dressed in cammo and marching like that? All the whining I hear these days about white supremacy falls flat on me. Most of the white people in the US are not racists and even when the KKK was at their peak most of the nation wanted nothing to do with them. When Obama was elected there was speculation that the KKK would try to assassinate him. If you actually read their twisted web sites you'd know that there was no way that would happen. As far as they were concerned Obama was what the nation deserved, for abandoning white supremacy.
I personally was pulling for Bernie, until he let 2 little girls take his mic. But even that didn't compare to watching him capitulate when he had the proof of the Clinton's screwing his campaign efforts. Instead, he took the vacation home and faded away. I watched the first Clinton administration ramp the drug war UP, so I would have voted for anyone BUT Hillary, even OJ Simpson. I was never a Trump "supporter", but I'd rather have him than the Clintons. I doubt he'll accomplish 1/8th of his boasting, so maybe a pause is what we're really getting.
