Stop-and-Frisk and Donald Trumpís Promise of a Police State for Black People

Trump's embrace of racist policing tactics is a terrifying master plan.
By Chauncey DeVega / Salon September 23, 2016

First, his black outreach campaign is simply one more example of the tired, fake, insincere, and ineffective efforts by Republican presidential candidates to win over non-white voters with the goal of appearing more moderate for the general election. In this cynical ploy, a faux-courting of non-white voters is a way of making independent and center Right-wing white voters feel more comfortable with the extreme and retrograde conservatism and racism of the current Republican Party.

Second, and most importantly, Trumpís promise to create a nationwide stop-and-frisk program targeting black and brown people is red meat for the ďbasket of human deplorablesĒ that is his base.

As shown by a litany of public opinion polls and other research, Trump supporters are racists, bigots, authoritarians, misogynists, and extremely hostile to African-Americans and other people of color.

1. Trump plans for his US version of the SS, Gestapo and Stormtroopers. He's following the Hitler model

well. Next, will be asking for "papers please" and eventually imprisonment of whomever. The guy is an authoritarian wacko. I'm stunned so many Americans support this creature named Trump. It's symptomatic of severe problems in the US, the bigotry and hatred. Trump, will pit Americans against Americans until he brings the country down, and his alliances with Putin are concerning.

3. Yes Trump is using Hitlers playbook

 

Where is the outrage in the Media over Trump wanting to wipe his ass with the constitution and start detaining and harassing innocent american citizens?

Is it ok because they are black?

5. I think there is a level of hatred and bigotry in some humans. Maybe it's an inherited generational

flight or flight response, survival of the fittest and all of that. Evolution has tamed it down a lot, but IMO someone like Trump brings it out. Thinking of what happened in Germany WW II ... Hitler precipitated and instigated that level of hatred.

The media is often a worthless bunch of ass wipes. Not all, but many. They see big money in promoting Trump. Controversies mean big money for M$M. M$M is working hard to make the 2016 presidency a gladiator spectacle.

Some Americans IMO are bigots and racists. It runs through all types of individuals IMO. M$M IMO is no exception. If this were not true, then Trump would not have as high polling numbers. Generally, when one turns on the TV to M$M, it's all about Trump. And investigative reporting has often been dropped. So, often we end up with tabloid reporting on M$M more akin to a reality TV show.

Disgusting, isn't it. IMO, M$M has promoted Trump to where he is today.
