Donald Trump Isn’t Even Hiding His Contempt For Latinos


Donald Trump, the president of the United States, decided he didn’t want to go to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner because he can’t take the heat. So, he did what he always does when he needs to boost his ego and he held a rally in Michigan. Before launching into a diatribe about the Mexican border wall, (which at one of his rallies is like playing Freebird), he asked a simple question,

“Any Hispanics in the room? Naw, not so many? That’s OK.”

This tells me a couple of things. One, he doesn’t care about alienating Latinos. Forget the fact that we are one of the fastest growing populations in the country. To him we are only a nuisance. He feels like he doesn’t need us and that making us hate him more is only going to galvanize the racist tendencies of his White followers. The second thing it tells me is that he doesn’t feel like he needs to hide his open contempt for Latinos. Not that he ever hid it very well. After all, he launched his campaign by calling Latinos rapists and murderers. That’s because we live in an America in which Nazis march in the street and are praised by the president.

I’m not saying that racism against Latinos was invented by Donald Trump, far from it. He is simply taking part in a time honored tradition. But at least in the past there was an attempt to hide the racism a little bit. Not anymore. Now it’s out in the open and we’d all better be careful.
