Donald Trump, #WhitesAgainstTrump

In a perfect retaliation to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's ceaseless racism, a new hashtag emerged during the final Republican debate of the year taking accountability for Trump’s bigoted rhetoric.

#WhitesAgainstTrump was first started by comedian and activist W. Kamau Bell urging whites to take responsibility for Trump. 

 

Donald Trump isn't a Republican issue or a rich people issue or a human issue. Donald Trump is a white people issue....

“It is time, white people, for you to finally step up and recognize that you also (even more so) have a responsibility to your race. It is up to you to silence Donald Trump,” Bell wrote on his Facebook page. “Recognize that he is embarrassing you as a white person…Stop acting like Trump isn't the pinnacle and the result of America's history and tradition of white supremacy. And again, I don't care if you had no plans to vote for Trump or anybody, if you are white, he is your problem above all else. Simply put, white people, come get your boy.”

During the debate, Bell reiterated the call to action again with the below tweet:

Twitter was soon abuzz with white people condemning Trump’s unfiltered xenophobia that is reinforced by a deep-rooted sentiment of white privilege in America.

Instead of remaining quiet on the issue and shrugging Trump’s comments off as ludicrous jokes, white Twitter demonstrated that Trump's antics will not be tolerated.
