Things to do now that Trump has won the United States of America 2016 Election By Nia Hampton

Pinch yourself because you’re not dreaming. This isn’t a really cool immersive episode of Black Mirror either. Donald Trump’s election is a gift from white supremacy. But what is white Supremacy? It is the belief that white people are superior to all other races, especially the black race, and therefore must rule everything. This was Donald Trumps’ campaign slogan essentially, with some classic patriarchy sprinkled on top. And yet, 53 percent of white women in the United States of America actively voted for Donald Trump, a man with charges of rape currently pending against him. So how is his election a gift? Sometimes, things have to fall apart to come together, better. The facade that the US was a post racial paradise has crumbled. And now we can do the really deep and hard work of reckoning with the past and genuinely creating a fairer and equitable world. White people get the gift of having a mirror held up to their community, to really work on the ways their white privilege has benefitted them while taking from other groups of people. White men especially will either love or hate Trump and even this revelation will unearth some gems. So what can you do, now that Donald Trump has been elected President?
