The current plight of asylum seekers in the United States and the traumatic separation of children from parents at the southern U.S. border, is the most recent American policy that is racially motivated.



"…This is not about the law. This is about the fear of a Brown America. Whatever the broad complexities of people crossing the border may be in the American imagination these politics play out in a very simple question… how many Brown people with Spanish last names can live in America and it still be America? This is the question that animates this so-called immigration debate. It is the driving force behind it. This is what is meant by 'infestation.' This is what is meant by 'animals.' This is what is meant by 'drug dealers' and 'rapists.' This is what is meant by 'bad hombres.'…This is what drives for the call for a wall…. This is why Cambridge Analytica titled their portfolio for the Trump campaign 'Project Alamo.'"

Bulls-Eye. Exactly right.

Do you think Trump would ever separate white children from Canada at the northern border, sending them far south, east, and west and leaving their Caucasian parents to find from detention camps North Dakota and Detroit?
