In a truly fucked up story, an African American woman from Rhode Island, Madison Amelia, shared a video she took in July of her white boyfriend spewing racist hate, instigated by Trump's presidential campaign.
Warning: It includes graphic language that could make your head explode, all love evaporate from your heart and may result in the replacement of your soul with a dark void.
In the video, the man can be heard saying, "Black Lives Matter? Go matter to fucking Ghana," and later dropping a truly ear bleeding number of N words.
When Amelia explains his language makes him sound racist, the boyfriend responds with, "Maddie, I don't care. You know why? Because I'm not up there saying 'White Lives Matter.'"
Amelia explained to Buzzfeed News she posted the video "... For it to help people... to see the side of Trump supporters that do exist. I'm not saying all Trump supporters are racist. But they all gave the pass on racism."
AND THAT'S THE THING. They all gave a pass on racism.
By turning a blind eye to the things Trump says and does that may make you uncomfortable (i.e. the blatant racism), you are perpetuating said racism.
And with Trump as our president, we as a nation have given discrimination, oppression and racism an avenue to spread and grow and cancer our society.
Do not normalize this.

Amelia continued that race was never an issue with her boyfriend until the Trump candidacy, but there was emotional and physical abuse.
They were together for three years, but she dumped him shortly after recording the video.
