“Why white supremacy means white male supremacy.”

When Donald Trump lamented at the loss of one of his employees’ career, a bomb of females protest erupted, for he not surprisingly ignored the suffering of his employees’ ex-wives. The only real surprise here was why the surprise?

After the Roy Moore debacle of a U.S. Senate candidate’s Lolita complex, as in a hankering for young girls, who can dare plead surprise? Only someone who hasn’t really been looking can feign surprise.

Trump’s central program is to somehow return America to the 1950s when Negroes were quiet, women were submissive, and Hispanics knew their place like Mexico, Puerto Rico. This fever dream of back to the future reality show is the focus of Trumpworld.

To do this, you have to ignore history to build a new history, an imitation of the supposed old days. Yes, it’s crazy. But it ain’t the only time the U.S. went crazy.

Considered the war mania that resulted from 9/11: war on anybody to quell the beating heart drunk with fear. Iraq, check. Afghanistan, double-check. War to save the worried American soul.

In Trumpworld, blacks don’t count, Hispanics don’t count, Arabs don’t count, women don’t count either. Yes, even white women. It’s time for the good old boys.

From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
