Making up crimes for Black men like Trump did to Obama is part of American Culture

Some People are outraged that Trump is calling Obama a criminal without naming a crime.

Please allow me to point out that blaming innocent Black men for crimes they never committed is right in line with American history and culture. It has been deemed as completely acceptable to the majority. It has even happened to me.

Check the Innocence Project. Almost every man proven innocent by DNA decades later (after serving a lifetime in prison), is a man of color. It’s as American as apple pie.

And this is not the first time Trump has done this. He did the same exact thing with the Exonerated Central Park 5, taking ads out in the paper asking for the death penalty when the victim didn’t even die.

Even the “crime” 14-year-old Emmitt Till was tortured and killed for, whistling at a White woman, was completely made up by the “victim.” That kid hadn’t even made puberty yet.

If you don’t believe me that this is right in line with American culture, then watch how many White people vote for Trump ANYWAY.

Cause it doesn’t bother them at all that the President of supposedly “everybody,” makes up fictional crimes for oppressed minorities that he is supposed to represent. Nothing is wrong with that, the “golden rule” be damned. That’s been happening forever. It’s the normal course of business to imprison Black people for nothing. ANY corrections officer you ask, will agree.

Al Sharpton offended a White cop 30 years ago and I still have to hear about it. Donald Trump makes up fictional crimes for a Black man who was PRESIDENT, TODAY and he can still comfortably rely on the majority of the White vote. He’s not even WORRIED about it. The White vote is not even THREATENED.

The majority of Whites who vote, actually APPROVE of this behavior. If they didn’t, he wouldn’t be able to get away with it. The majority of Whites wouldn’t vote for him. But they do. he gets their votes with no problem at all. They come to HIM. In fact, White people tell me every day how certain they are that Trump will win again. no matter what he says or does to any minority.

Bernie Sanders MARCHED for civil rights. But now, even some of HIS White supporters openly flirt with voting for Trump. As if human rights were just a joke for them to play with when disappointed. The truth is that ANY official who makes up fictional crimes for ANYbody is committing a human rights violation against that person. People have been killed over stuff like this.

You have the God and country-given right not to be publicly decried for crimes you never committed. So does Barack Obama.

I wish I could say I’m surprised, but history warned me.
