This then, is the president’s new mantra, that it’s so hard to be white!
In his quest to find people who don’t understand what he is, what he has become, how deep his flaws go into his very soul, he has decided to turn to white midwesterners for support in places like Ohio, I suspect. Lots of white people in Ohio.
This is generally a dangerous subject to write about because of the land mines that surround the subject of race in our nation. One wrong word and bingo, you are on the shite list of every liberal organization in the universe.
I suspect most of those are primarily white, too.
I don’t think the people of Ohio are stupid so it may not work, but there might be enough stupid white people in the midwest to give him a little bump, and he needs all the little bumps he can find these days. You’ll be able to spot them in their t-shirts with Trump slogans on them. They will also be tattooed and sunburned, maybe one more so than the other. Perhaps they will have Harley Davidson motorcycles under them, but that doesn’t mean anything because plenty of smart white people ride Harley Davidson bikes.
I have known all kinds of people, and by that I mean all types of people, all over the world over my 71 years of rambling.
Most places I have visited were overrun by happy white people enjoying their lives. Finland, now there is a country of white people! Much of Russia, too, bleached-looking white people who burn very red whenever they spend too much time in the sun. Ireland was overwhelmingly white. Germany, too. And…
Wait a minute. What is the point here?
The big point is that the president has fully embraced a racial campaign in a nation that has been longing to resolve its problems with race. This proves he may well be the stupidest white person of them all, even in all the orange makeup.
The Black Lives Matter protests and demonstrations, vastly peaceful and full of passion, have redefined how this country approaches the question of race. We all have an immense amount fixing to do, but we aren’t going to do it by pretending white people are some how disadvantaged. The record, the real record, proves the opposite.
Still, being white has its problems.
But generally, the only time when it’s hard to be white is when when it’s too sunny. There are goos and ointments to wear under those conditions so you can still be happy to be white, but still, sunburn is painful, makes you peel and may expose you to skin cancer, and who wants that?
And if we’re going to be literal about it, we aren’t white. We are pink and have an abundance of freckles and, as time passes, brown liver spots at different places.
