In other words, the Trump presidency was not the product of immaculate conception. His promise to make America great again
appealed to a large minority whose sense of itself and its place in the

inferiors. Too many Americans need people to look down on to feel better
about themselves. They’re terrified of losing that. #BLM means “black
lives matter too. They hear “… more than mine.” Nonwhite
demands for equality feel like oppression. They are having none of it.
They want their Great White Hope.
