They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

said the President of the United States

A racist statement

Or it is something else –

Undeniable lack of knowledge of other people

With the same desires

With the same dreams

With the same aspirations

As any white person

But they differ in one aspect: how the government views them.

One group voted for him

One group scapegoated by him

So that he could get elected.

Systemic racial divides added with

a fundamental misunderstanding of cultures

Sums up his rise to the top.

“Build the Wall!”
