HOW TRUMP IS TURNING WHITE RESENTMENT INTO WHITE RAGE
Like on Christmas morning, every day brings his supporters presents: travel bans against Muslims, Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in Hispanic communities and brutal, family-gutting deportations, a crackdown on sanctuary cities, an Election Integrity Commission stacked with notorious vote suppressors, announcements of a ban on transgender personnel in the military, approval of police brutality against “thugs,” a denial of citizenship to immigrants who serve in the armed forces and a renewed war on drugs that, if it is anything like the last one, will single out African-Americans and Latinos although they are not the primary drug users in this country. Last week, Mr. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions put the latest package under the tree: a staffing call for a case on reverse discrimination in college admissions, likely the first step in a federal assault on affirmative action and a determination to hunt for colleges and universities that discriminate against white applicants.
NOTE: Good piece. I find it interesting that Ms. Anderson uses the term "policies" rather than "politics" in her title. Doing so, I think, highlights not the presumably temporary effects of a set of campaign pronouncements but the permanent effect of regulations and laws implemented by an administration. And with the Trump Administration, a racist one.
