This country was founded and established for CENTURIES on violent white nationalist extremism wrapped up as “patriotism” and genocidal Christian entitlement sold as “manifest destiny”. It is this enduring cultural tradition that both explains and drives Trump and his supporters.
Despite “civil rights”, there has NEVER been a moral, social or political platform implemented to systematically challenge and change in public AND in private the violent, oppressive white supremacist culture that‘s been normalized and institutionalized for generations.
The reason so many have difficultly naming the problem — white supremacy — or calling out racists and white nationalist extremists is the normalization we‘ve been living with for centuries. That’s what happens when just about EVERY president we’ve had was a white nationalist.
