‘The few protesters were foolish and delusional–the numerous Trump supporters were mild and cheerful’
Jared Taylor tries to get into local Trump rally:
I was recording interviews, and some of the people had given their full names, so perhaps they were being cautious. Still, I did not get the impression they were holding back. It was clear from my questions that I would not be shocked by “racist” answers, but I didn’t get a single one. And yet, if they hold such mainstream views, why where they sweltering in the sun in a line so long their chances of getting into the rally to see the candidate were slim to none? Why do they support a notorious “fascist” and “racist”? There may be more to these supporters than they are letting on.
After we had been standing for 45 minutes, a motorcycle cop drove along the line, announcing that the gym was filled and that no more people would be admitted. The mildest possible ripple of disappointment went through the crowd, but there was no outcry. Thousands of white people cheerfully headed back to their cars.
That last line gives me an idea that I can’t use:
You know those books where someone pretends to be black or fat or living in Bible times or Julia Child for a year?
Some black person should live “like a white person” for one year. I don’t mean wear white-face. I mean, stop going to da club, don’t waste your money on rims, hair extensions and fake nails, read some books, dump their “in-car-cer-at-ed” friends and relatives, pay their own rent without resorting to dubious “side hustles,” don’t freak out when the chicken runs out at Popeye’s or on Black Friday…
Then after a year, see how their lives have improved.
White Like Me! Steal this book idea.
