Professor Ekow Yankah from Yeshiva University wrote an op-ed for the New York Times encouraging parents to teach their children not to trust white people and to stay away from them? Why? Because some white people voted for Donald Trump.
“My oldest son, wrestling with a 4-year-old’s happy struggles, is trying to clarify how many people can be his best friend,” he wrote. He then discussed how he tried to teach his son to be more hateful because of politics. “But even a child’s joy is not immune to this ominous political period. This summer’s images of violence in Charlottesville, Va., prompted an array of questions. “’ome people hate others because they are different,'” he wrote.
“A childish but distinct panic enters his voice. “But I’m not different.” It is impossible to convey the mixture of heartbreak and fear I feel for him. Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped. I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust. Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people,” he wrote.
In other words he is a despicable racist who is trying to make his children hate the world and be racist themselves.
“The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous dream of black and white children holding hands was a dream precisely because he realized that in Alabama, conditions of dominance made real friendship between white and black people impossible,” he wrote.
