An excellent essay. With exception, your definition of ‘racist’ matches mine. I received a DM on Facebook from a hater, who took great exception to my characterization of Trumpists as racists. Although the hater denied any racism, he simply did not get the connection. His vote for tRUMP has supported unbridled racism. To to even consider building border walls to exclude Mexicans is racist; that heavily regulating immigration, especially from predominantly-Muslim countries and constantly threatening deportation is racist; that failing to condemn the murder of Heather Heyer (and by default supporting neo-Nazis) is racist; and that demonizing members of the NFL as ‘un-American’ is also racist.
