When Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate for President of these United States, says let’s “make America great again” he knows that what his audience actually hears is; let’s get back to the time when there were whites only drinking fountains, blacks had to ride in the back of the bus and schools were segregated. And, certainly a time when there “weren’t no uppity niggra” in The White House.
Surely, all these old blindingly cruel ways will not, cannot, be brought back – let us hope. But, this is what he knows his audience knows was a “better” time in America.
A time when “gays” and other “deviants” were warned to keep it, and themselves, to themselves and, in too many instances, were attacked, beaten and sometimes killed. A time when a middle-class interracial couple may as well have worn a flashing sign that said “spit on us.”
