A Trump Supporter posted this Yesterday. I have a question do you even know what the definition of oppressed even means. From Dictionary.com :to burden with cruel or unjust impositions or restraints; subject to a burdensome or harsh exercise of authority or power. From Merriam Websters dictionary: a archaic : suppress
b : to crush or burden by abuse of power or authority The country has long been oppressed by a ruthless dictator. oppressed minorities.
I think they are confusing this word with criticized, Mocked, judged. who has had and still has the power in this country Rich mostly white males who crush Hispanics, Blacks, Native Americans and the poor in general.
No one is Oppressing Trump or his supporters. So to try and turn Malcolm X’s words on those who are truly oppressed is both disgusting and just wrong. Who are Trump and his supporters being Oppressed? This is a question I would like to hear the answer to.
When unarmed black men and women are being killed by the police by the hundreds each year and being incarcerated for dealing Marijuana 4 times more than whites and they do it at the same rate. Unjustly imprisoning refugees who are seeking asylum from countries that are dealing with extreme violence that the United States has promoted because of the “War on Drugs” that was put forth by the Republicans back in the 70’s and increased by both the Democrats and Republicans in the 80’s and 90’s, and is still going on today. Not to mention the countless refugees caused by the unlawful invasion of Iraq who had nothing to do with 9/11. This lead to a power vacuum that lead to the creation of Isis. How dare you. Learn your damn History look at through an objective eye, not one clouded by fear and hate.
I am not sorry for this rant. I say this with all the conviction in my heart. You want to see who the real oppressors are look in the mirror. AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND HISTORY.
Last but not least PICK UP A DAMN DICTIONARY.
