Donald Trump Will See Obama Tonight

 

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, YourBlackWorld.comScholarship in Action 

Donald Trump and Barack Obama will be in the same room tonight.  The White House Correspondents dinner has Trump on the guest list, with President Obama delivering a stand up routine that pokes fun at himself and his presidency.  While almost no topics are off limits during the dinner, Trump doesn’t expect the president to talk about him.

"I wouldn’t think [Obama] would address me" during his speech, Trump said to ABC News. 

Trump doesn’t have to worry about President Obama joking about him, because he’s made himself into a joke for the rest of the nation.  His recent tirades against the president, including questioning whether he is truly a natural born American, whether or not he was qualified to get into Harvard and whether he plays too much basketball, have led to his being referenced as a racist by many leading public figures.

At the very least, we can congratulate Trump on helping the rest of America see what millions of African Americans deal with on a daily basis.  A recent Your Black World Survey found that nearly 90% of all respondents feel that they’ve experienced racial discrimination in the workplace.  As President Obama’s battle with Trump clearly shows, even when you’re on top of your game, there’s always some ridiculously jealous and bitter white male seeking to undermine your credentials.  Of course this doesn’t refer to all white males, but it’s no coincidence that most positions of power in major corporations are occupied by white men.

    Thanks for your remarks. Racism and bias of many kinds remains a problem in need of a solution. As a White man trying to expand my perspective, I truly believe I’m part of the problem when I’m not working to address a solution.
