Last year, the presidential campaign started off strong with twelve Republican candidates running for office and only two Democratic candidates running for office. In the last couple of months, many of the twelve Republicans have been knocked out of the race for office, while Candidates such as Cruz, Trump, Carson, Rubio, and Kasich along with the dynamic Democratic duo Clinton and Sanders remain, ready to be voted for on Super Tuesday, March 2nd.
The voting on March 2nd left Hillary Clinton (D) and Donald Trump (R) standing as primary candidates for the 2016 Presidential Elections. The Republican party weened out the weak with childish and somewhat political banter, while the Democratic party debated over social, financial, and political issues, like professional candidates should. The presidential campaign left a lot of sensitive topics and issues linger in the diverse political atmosphere, while striking up verbal and physical altercations among political supporters at campaigning events.
Yesterday, while scrolling down our Facebook timeline, we stumbled upon a sickening video surrounding the 2016 Presidential Campaign. The video contained a horrific and disturbing attack of a young black women, “allegedly” a Black Lives Matter activist, being pushed and physically assaulted by white Trump supporters. Grown men and women pushed this young and defenseless black woman out of the event with disgusting arrogance. The sad part is that this video is one of many of minorities being attacked at a Trump supported event. As seen in the past at events, marches and riots, unarmed minority supporters have been arrested, beaten, killed, and called thugs by white audiences. Needless to say, whether a person is White, Black, Hispanic, or Orange, they shouldn’t get that upset or even have the need to put their hands on any other human being, especially if that other human being didn’t physically assault them.
We know that emotions are high because of the campaign season, and people want to support candidates that represent them socially and politically, but it’s really getting out of hand. We live in a nation where there are racial privileges given to the people that “supposedly” represent every aspect of the United States. We live in a beautifully diverse nation that appropriates to a specific race and mistreats the rest of its inhabitants. No matter what the person looks like, if a person wrongful participates in any act or situation, they should be notified and take accountability for their actions. This isn’t being done today, or hasn’t been done in the past, and the “real” silent majority, which are minorities, are tired of this discriminatory infraction. Everybody make sure you go out and vote in the upcoming presidential election, so that your voices can be heard!
