This is the type of top-notch commentary and analysis you can only get from The New York Times.
African-American writer Charles Blow wrote a column on Monday defending ESPN host Jemele Hill's claim that "Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists."
Was what Hill said untrue, as Trump's tweet suggests, or is Trump in fact a white supremacist who has surrounded himself with white supremacists and whose party courted white supremacists?The Republicans in the Senate unanimously signed on to a resolution condemning "white supremacists" which many pointed out was a direct attack on free speech.
Did the Democrats do the same after five cops were killed at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas?
No they didn't. In fact, Obama had invited racist Black Lives Matter activists to the White House just a few months before the attack. He also responded to the shooting by lecturing the police about how racist they are.
These are two completely different worlds.
But then the question remains: Is Trump himself a white supremacist?Is Blow a black supremacist?
He's a fervent defender of the Black Lives Matter movement which is loaded with black supremacists. While he might claim he's not a black supremacist, Trump claims he's not a white supremacist, so that's meaningless. Blow is followed by black supremacists on Twitter and many black supremacists are fans of his.
Either Charles Blow is himself a black supremacist or he is a fan and defender of black supremacists, and I quite honestly am unable to separate the two designations.
