White America has long enabled this bullshit.

Trumpism isn't merely a story about the Repub Party, but about White America as a whole.

There are some whites on the left who trip all over themselves to defend Trumpers and their behavior, like what these kids did.

It's also why White America (and not just Repubs) fear tougher Left groups like BLM and Antifa who stand and fight in the streets for justice, and don't take shit like this.
