“Boycott Trump” Apps to Wall Murals: How People Are Fighting the Power

There’s no denying it.  November 8th changed America in ways no one really could have predicted. A Trump presidency seems to have helped a lot of  Whites connect with their inner racist.

Daily headlines tell us about stories like former KKK member David Duke who says the surge in White supremacy is helping his run for a Louisiana senate seat. Duke said in a recent interview, “I love it…The fact that Donald Trump’s doing so well, it proves that I’m winning. I am winning.” Supremacists are throwing caution to the wind…and their sheets…and being bold.   Delta airlines had to ban a Trump supporter from the airlines for life after the he disrupted a flight from Atlanta to Allentown. The man at one point allegedly jumped out of his seat, clapped his hands and shouted, “Donald Trump baby! We got some Hillary bitches on here?” and “Donald Trump! It’s your president. Every god**mn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.”


And then there’s this woman…June Pridmore who was fired from her job as a senior vice president at Regions Bank after her Facebook post that said, “I prefer a man who can buy Michele (sic) and Barack and sell them several times over,” Pridmore wrote. “I voted [Trump] in. I like him. He has a beautiful wife unlike the ugly and embarrassing woman, in the White House now. Ms. Trump’s face would make Michele (sic) O’Bama (sic) a Sunday face.”

But if you think all this newfound White pride racism isn’t meeting some pushback then think again.  Some genius has developed an app that helps consumers boycott Trump where it hurts most—the pocketbook.  The app lists more 250 businesses tied to Trump like Sprint, Nike, Gucci and Dr. Pepper.  The app shows how they’re connected and follows the money trail.

The app was created by a group called the Democratic Coalition Against Trump.  Here’s how the app is described on itunes…”Make Trump and his allies pay, literally, for their hateful rhetoric and regressive policies,” You can also download the “Boycott Trump” android phones as well.

In Oklahoma, one brave artist is proving that a picture is worth a thousand words and she has plenty to 583cbec118000093143104bcsay.  Street artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh needed one entire outside wall of a building in Oklahoma City to get her message across.  Her painting addresses the whitelash sweeping the country which includes the message:  “America is black. It is Native. It wears a hijab. It is a Spanish speaking tongue. It is migrant. It is a woman. It is here. Has been here. And it’s not going anywhere.”   Fazlalizadeh says she created the painting to “specifically challenge whiteness and the accepted idea of who an American is”.

The Trump presidency it seems has people on all sides of the race issue coming to a new stage of being woke.  None more noticeable perhaps than Nick Cannon who  many often see as corny because the “America’s Got Talent”  host usually camouflages his serious side, but now he’s showing all his layers and getting deep on political issues.

Cannon was trending last week after his comments from an interview with Power 105’s “Breakfast Club” in which he slammed both  Trump and Hillary saying neither will effect any change to the problems facing oppressed communities. Cannon referenced Planned Parenthood as a means politicians use to diminish the Black community through reproductive health organizations. Canon said,”Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years.” The actor, comedian recently announced he’s expecting his third child while he apparently think many in Black and minority communities are turning to agencies like Planned Parenthood to abort children.  Cannon says the group is inflicting eugenics or population control on the Black community. Cannon also says,”This system is not built for us. This is not our land. I appreciate it. I love it, wouldn’t want to live nowhere else, but this wasn’t designed for our people.”

While all this racially provoked talk is uncomfortable and sometimes disheartening, it’s also necessary.  Even if people like the guy on the flight or the woman at the head of the bank are saying despicable things, wouldn’t you rather know who you’re dealing with than to have them hiding in your workplace or next door in your apartment building?   People like Cannon are perhaps seeing a bigger picture than what they saw before the election…no matter who’s in the White House, no one really is working on behalf of the common man.

What do you think….is all this new found power by both races simply clearing the air? Or is all this talk leading us toward more separatism and racism?

  1. YOU CAN PAINT MURALS UNTIL YOUR ASSES FALL OFF, BUT UNTIL YOU HAVE OVERCOME A SELF HATE SO PROFOUND AS TO STULTIFY EVEN THE MINDS OF OTHER RACES OF PEOPLE YOU WILL HAVE NO POWER
    IN A WORLD RULED BY WHITES FOR THE LAST FIVE HUNDRED YEARS OR SO OF HUMAN HISTORY! THE
    TRUMPS WILL CONTINUE TO RULE THE ROOST IN THIS WORLD IN THE SAME MANNER AS MR. NAPOLEON BONAPARTE DID AFTER HE TOLD HIS DIPLOMAT TALLYRAND: “MY INTENTION TO DESTROY THE AUTHORITY
    OF THE BLACKS IN SAINT DOMINGUE IS NOT SO MUCH FOR COMMERCE OR FINANCIAL CONCERNS, BUT TO
    BLOCK THE FORWARD MARCH OF THE BLACKS IN OUR WORLD FOREVER!” EVERY BULLET FLYING, BABY CRYING, PIMP PREACHER SHOUTING BULLSHIT, AND EVERY UTTERANCE OF THE ‘N’ WORD BY THOSE WHO SHOULD HAVE
    COLLECTIVELY DELETED IT FROM THEIR VOCABULARY A CENTURY AGO, MERELY EMPOWERS THE VAIN, RACIST,
    CONCEITED MINDS RUNNING THIS WORLD RACIAL PECKING ORDER SYSTEM, A SYSTEM WHOSE LYING, SLYLY
    CRAFTED CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT EVEN MENTION THE WORD DEMOCRACY IN IT AND THE CONVENTION FOR IT BOYCOTTED FOLLOWED BY FOUR YEARS OF REAL CIVIL WAR (SHAY’S REBELLION OF 1781 AND THE WHISKEY REBELLION OF 1791-1794) LEFT OUT OF OUR AMERICAN ‘HISTORY’ BOOKS ALONG WITH MANY OTHER SUCH OCCURRENCES!

    THIS IS THE TRUE FACE OF THE AMERICAN MIND AND NOTHING CAN STOP THE RECKONING OF IT WHICH THIS
    ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT FIGURE DONALD TRUMP WILL ENGINEER IN A MUCH MORE RAPID DESTINATION ARRIVAL THAN THE FACELESS, WALL STREET OWNED WHORE HILARY CLINTON! THEN ALL WILL SEE WHAT GEORGE
    SANTAYANA MEANT WHEN HE SAID THAT THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM THEIR HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO
    REPEAT IT!

    HOW SAD BUT TRUE, SO BE IT!

  2. Nickey Cannon is a buffoon. First and foremost HIS STUPID ASS did not vote. He also told his followers not to vote. Anyone that asserts he’s awoke politically is a damn fool. That includes the writer of this article. Let me dissect. As we see how Trump is stocking his cabinet with racist that will affect change albeit negative change for BLACK people. Hillary would have used a course of action to at the least protect us financially. Although, dumbass Nickey don’t have to worry about that others do. As for Planned Parenthood. His stupid as forgot about personal responsibility. There are no white people forcing black mothers to get abortions. It’s their personal choice (or their boyfriend/baby daddy). So there is no genocide conspiracy. Besides black women aren’t the only ones who get abortions. We need to stop blaming white people for decisions our own people make. That’s like saying, it’s wrong to arrest Pookie for stealing because he was just trying to pay his rent. Pookie commits a crime and gets caught Pookie should go to jail. It’s called personal responsibility

  3. I beg to differ with Nick, but this is “OUR” country. We built it from the ground up. They just took the spoils. “WE” were here first (back in the Garden) and they hate that. Not all of them, but the haters have made a mockery of their own people by turning the decent ones into institutionalized, system-wide prevaricators of their petty insecurities. But alas, GOD will PREVAIL and the wrongs will be made right. Amen.

  4. There was a time when we were one albeit primitive at that before we disperse globally and evolve. But now voice in society is more pronounce and grown in stature amongst adversity. Society on both camps are seeing the world for what it turely is and the difference now is a that a lot more people who you might consider to be white and privileged are standing up and using their position in numbers and strength to side with us and fight our cause. I say that is real progress and the whole world is embracing that change!

  5. It’s about time your average white woke up to this ugly face of racists and racism…we can make this world a better place by standing as one…not one color, but one people…soon the uglies will realize they are only hurting themselves once they realize they are in fact…NOT superior and never were!
