Donald Trump Holds Campaign Rally In Des Moines

Donald Trump‘s place behind the podium has wrought violence and chaos, which is only growing worse by the day. Trump feeds upon this energy, so his articulated stances have grown more extreme as his presidential campaign progresses. Perhaps zombie Jeb Bush knocked him down a peg and may cause a brief fade, but we can rely upon a few certainties. A segment of the U.S. population does embrace Trump, but another segment is downright embarrassed. Trump calls himself the “least racist person” while making anti-Hispanic statements and proposing anti-Muslim policies. He also described a Black Lives Matter protester as “disgusting.”

In response to the increasing madness, stand-up comic and Totally Biased host W. Kamau Bell would like white people to realize the gravity of the Trump situation. Bell posted a strongly worded message on Facebook:

“Donald Trump isn’t a Republican issue or a rich people issue or a human issue. Donald Trump is a white people issue. Whenever Ben Carson says batsh*t crazy nonsense, Black people rise up, and let him know that he needs to STFU. Whenever Raven-Symone pops off, we put her cap back on. We even handled Rachel Dolezal for you. Yes, we also make jokes and come up with clever memes and hashtags, but at the core of all that is that we are letting these people know that they are embarrassing us as Black people.”
