It’s Racism not Rhetoric.

Call it what it is. It’s racism, not persuasive speaking or a figure of speech. A lengthy essay is not needed, acknowledgement and awareness is. Stating American citizens of color should go back to where they came from, is racist. Calling for the death penalty for five young Black kids, whom were cleared of crime, is racist. Stating President Obama is not actually an American citizen, is racist. Stating Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals, is racist. Stating a judge cannot do his job due to his surname, is racist. Stating Neo-Nazis are fine people, is racist. Silence or a stationary stance on racism only sustains and fortifies its toxicity. Calling out racism is required for democracy to prevail. We have to call this what it is. It’s racism folks. When people think of America, what are they thinking?
