Donald J. Trump took the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2017, officially making him the 45th President of the United States of America. While there has been plenty of talk, controversy and scandal surrounding the new leader of the free world, there hasn’t been many notable commonalities between his election and that of his predecessor, Barack Obama — until now.
With the initial election of Obama in 2008, some Americans declared that this alone had ended racism; we were, from then on, living in a post-racial America. Awesome! Now that all racial minorities were free of discrimination and systematic injustice, it was time to relax and let civil rights take a much-needed breather. Thanks, Obama! “But what about the racial majority?” One man dared to boldly and publicly to ask. That man’s name was Donald J. Trump.
With much concern for the financially stable, middle-aged, heterosexual white male, Trump launched his historic campaign. Privileged masculinity then paved the way for what we can now confidently call a post-post-racial America. Just as Obama had ended regular racism before him, President Trump has successfully ended reverse racism. Wow! On the far-reaching effects of his accomplishment, Trump stated, “I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers.” Three cheers for equality!
Are you tired of feeling uncomfortable sometimes? Do you get irrationally nervous when hearing foreign languages? Are you sick of double standards? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might have been personally victimized by reverse racism. If you’re frustrated that racial minorities get their very own clubs and award shows, but when you and your buddies show off your new robes and hoods it’s considered “wrong,” worry no more. All of America is now officially your safe space, and y’all can do whatever the hell you want. This ain’t no communist country! I mean, it’s not like your personal safety is threatened by your skin color or anything.
Even better yet, if you are a victim of reverse racism and a man over the age of 16, you officially have the legal rights to the reproductive systems of all your female neighbors and co-workers. Cool!
When asked about his next major move as President, Trump quickly mumbled something about somehow privatizing all 50 states and turning them into a for-profit organization. Chief Strategist Steve Bannon then shushed him and escorted him out of the room, denying any further comment.
