How Donald Trump Is Classic With His White Male Privilege
The final stretch of the 2020 presidential election has arrived with furious anticipation for the shit fest that’s about to unfold, with potential denting of the duplicitous electoral college, that roared a former reality TV star and crooked businessman into the highest office in the land.
Who the hell knows!
What can’t be disputed, even by the white folks, who will surely vote to reelect their supreme leader, based solely on his track record of unsightly bigotry, and vitriol directed at harassed communities, migrants from “shit hole” countries, Muslim-Americans and those who aren’t suitable for the mission statement of #MAGA, is the absolute power of Donald Trump’s white male privilege.
The idiotic supporters cramming the Thug-in-Chief’s KKK-themed rallies across the country, pridefully discounting lifesaving measures like masks and social distancing are drunk with admiration for a white male who is the potent embodiment of the deadliness of white power.
For Trumpsters, especially “Women for Trump” who will undoubtedly pay homage once again to the reassuring reflection of the dominant white male figures in their lives, who also share the patriotic traditions of being enabled aggressors for terrible behavior that society inherently coddles as forgivable blunders — The Trump Crime Family is royalty on steroids.
White folks can’t get enough of the accidental hero, who arrived just in time to wipe away the darkness and gloom of the Obama era.
For them, it was eight whole years of being suffocated and submerged under the defeating landscape of the historic win that Black folks celebrated and utilized as evidence of America’s awe-inspiring advancement into the realm of infectious progressiveness.
White America wrongly assumed that Black America was giddy enough to lose sight of reality in the midst of an unfolding narrative, praising the first-ever Black family to move into the House that slaves built as a national monument to white power.
Obama’s historic win was mistakenly deemed the cultural renaissance to override past atrocities.
Of course, we know that during Obama’s presidency, he woefully failed to get the necessary approval for legislation aimed at protecting the interests and survivability of Black lives, that didn’t matter when he was in office, and certainly not now with a white supremacist giving TV shoutouts to far-right bandits.
Obama’s searing defeat when it came to living up to the expectations of the first-ever Black Commander-in-Chief was thanks to the racist GOP, now known as Trump’s Party, and the willful cruelty of entitled white males, who needed to weaponize their whiteness to constantly demean and de-power the Blackness of the most respected man in the world.
Trump’s highly-touted criminal justice reform bill that was seamlessly activated not long after he took the oath of office was spearheaded by son-in-law and so-called WH senior advisor, Jared Kushner, who felt compelled by his own father’s past imprisonment to honor the sense of urgency of a victory lap in the same lane that Obama was run over.
More than a decade ago, Charles Kushner was convicted of tax evasion and illegal campaign contributions among other things, and while those are obviously very serious offenses that should come with a lengthy prison sentence, the real estate developer only got two years, and was eventually released in 2006.
Criminal minds think alike, and it’s no shocker that the merging of two ultra-wealthy New York dynasties, both concentrated in the lucrative industry of real estate, each amassed riches illegally though tax fraud and the mismanaging of funds specifically allotted for purposes that are roguishly coopted to serve nefarious agendas.
Kushner didn’t quite get away with it since he’s officially a felon, thanks to his conviction and jail time, which his son swears was a glitch in the system, that notoriously endorses the injustices assigned to Black victims, who are still languishing in the industrial prison complex that was built to terrorize generations of Black families for petty misdemeanors.
Trump, however, is a lucky son-of-a-bitch, who shamelessly squandered his illustrious station as “leader of the free world” by cursing out America’s treasured allies, and dangerously embracing murderous dictators, who were teaching him the shortcuts of how to be a renowned global disrupter with the damning mantra of #MAGA branded on his agency.
As we countdown to the biggest and most prolific event of our lives, it’s hard not to wonder if Trump’s classic play as the deplorable white male with excess privilege at his disposal, will once again provide the engine he needs to get to the finish line before his worthier contender.
We know that his abominable traits have gotten him further than anyone with his thuggish moves deserves.
His inexplicable appeal is rooted in the fascination with his “what you see is what you get” temperament, that illustrates the freedom he wields as his celebrated whiteness dictates the ability to display rampant foulness without any ramifications.
Trump knows that his more revered predecessor wouldn’t have been afforded the bullet points of white privilege, which gives white folks the unapologetic audacity to take advantage of their good fortune at the unfair expense of those who can’t fight back.
And even when they do — they tragically lose.
President Barack Obama is a Black man with a Muslim-sounding middle name, making his miraculous ascent that much more polarizing for white males in prominent positions, who did their very best to discredit the uncanny brilliance and overall genius of someone they tried but failed to regulate as inferior.
Black people have to be damn near close to perfection with consistent output in the workplace and everywhere else, and that still doesn’t guarantee the level of recognition and respect that white counterparts are bequeathed, just by walking through the door.
Donald Trump is a seasoned buffoon and a racist pig, who bullied his way into every prime opportunity he didn’t earn. He should be thoroughly investigated for an extensive rap sheet that will only get longer when he’s back to being a civilian.
But his lottery win as a one-term president will make it nearly impossible to persecute an impeached outlaw to the full extent of the law. At least that’s what they will tell those of us who are curious and adamant about seeing members of the Trump Crime Family firmly behind bars for life.
The other main reason why Donald Trump will live a stress free existence in his balmy Palm Beach fortress has everything to do with his white male privilege, the invaluable currency that won’t magically depreciate after his stunning defeat forces him out of the House he defecated on with pompous glee.
His whiteness allowed his stunning ascension and it will provide the security for his predicted long life and prosperity, despite his ghastly criminal record.
That’s the deadly disease without a cure!
