Let me just say this, any statements that directly say or infer hurt and offense to anyone based on their ethnicity is wrong. If you can’t make your point without insult, it is always best to keep your mouth shut, and open it up when you can.
With that being said, America, really? Our Presidents have been slave owners simply for their own financial gain. And, just fine with the management of Jim Crow laws running our country to keep minority’s in a state of fear and poverty after slavery, so please miss me with our Leaders suddenly having to be impeccable on how they view anyone, or needing to have real concern with how people are treated fairly in business and education. Oh yes America, I’ve got some questions for you, your hypocrisy, and attempts to destroy Donald Trump.
First, when did it become acceptable to take away everything someone has worked for because we don’t like what they said, just to prove the point that we can. It’s like we know we can’t physically kill you, so instead we will annihilate you in every other way possible. When we are done with you, you won’t have any friends, businesses, and no one will even want to be seen with you. Yea, we love you when your doing good, but one bad move, and it’s over. Sorry folks, but I’m really leery about getting any kind of praise from America. I don’t know if it’s worth it. This kind of punishment feels cruel and cold.
Secondly, are these other businesses that recently ended ties with Trump really interested in the needs of any minority or underprivileged group? Or, is this incident just a convenient way for them to capitalize from what he said, use it to get free press, and out of an unbeneficial contract when in fact they really are indifferent to it all. I mean have we seen NBC’s television line up since FOREVER. It doesn’t seem like they are to concerned with inclusion or fairness. In fact, Trumps show, The Apprentice may be it’s most diverse show.
Lastly, I question if Trump was instructed that in announcing his new ambition, he shouldn’t try to get high ratings, or the same amount of attention as compared to his other business ventures. Politics typically gives off the appearance of being entered into strategically and slowly, even if it has been planned years in advance. Politicians learn early they don’t need to say how they really feel about a group or race, because they have the power to keep the legal, financial, and education system exactly the way they want it to be, no matter anyone’s opinion.
The fact that Trump is loosing so much personally and has yet to withdraw his candidacy, shouldn’t be overlooked. I know many of us don’t want to look at the other side of things, but I can’t think of any Presidential nominee that has lossed as much, simply for wanting to lead the country.
This isn’t about who gets to run and be President. It’s more about how we treat people when they are no longer convenient. The “if you’re a problem, we will send you back” mentality is what we say we’re against, but we are displaying the opposite.
Just as Trump callously often tosses people out his boardroom, and doesn’t accept their excuses for poor execution, maybe it’s karma. Or, maybe we as a country don’t want to do the hard work to fix issues with inequality, poverty, racism, sexism, and would rather do the easy thing, which is to pick on someone that everybody else is picking on.
Business as usual.

I love this post as it was very thought provoking. Please keep the commentary’s coming. While I may not care too much for Trump. Your take on things has given me pause to consider the bigger picture. Well Done!
I Believe that if People start to loss things that they deem important to them for saying and doing the wrong things then Maybe People will change there behavior. There are too many People Yes Men and Women needing Praise from others instead of doing what is right. Those who do right or Just have NO Friends. But this is what happens when You live in a Material World or Want to Live the American Dream.
