'Bigotry seems emboldened' in the U.S. According to George W. Bush

"Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that "bigotry seems emboldened" in the modern U.S. He also warned that America needs to accept "globalization" and reject "white supremacy."

He criticized the "governing class" without specifically mentioning President Trump, Congress or any other current politicians."

Your request is understandable, with "Dubya" seen from the perspective of what we are currently facing.

Re: 'Bigotry seems emboldened' in the U.S. According to George W. Bush

I cry out from my grave, uncovered

You walk swiftly
Avoiding my gaze, why the hurry o'le Comrade?
We ate oildown from the same plate
While"Let Freedom Ring" assailed the moonlit night
The fragrance of nutmeg blossoms
Herald our songs of determination for change
Brother
How can you say “you forget”!
Has time leached your memory?

Oh my beloved Grenada!
I'll wait for you ol'e Comrade
Here in the Valley of Martyrs
Where I cry out from my grave, uncovered
Commemorating the fallen Heroes of the Grenadian Revolution
Our beloved Sons and Daughters
Gone but never forgotten!
Forward Ever, Backward Never

Re: 'Bigotry seems emboldened' in the U.S. According to George W. Bush

As I said before Trump is simply the manifestation of the problem. I kept asking: who are these people that are supporting Donald Trump? I was asking that long ago in the early moments of the republican primary.

Hardly anyone wants to address that question. Even now. None in the media. Almost no one. When they cant even blame it on black lives matter as told by Russia anymore. People seems too scared or unwilling to address this institution called RACISM.

For awhile they even tried to tell us there's only a handful of racists. Those who admitted to being one. And the others, they tell us, were racist were those who voiced objection to racism with firm conviction.

Now that these jive turkey are realizing the strength and numbers and support behind bigotry I expect them to make even more excuses and denials. Those doing that must share some blame.


Just like the treat this Florida congress woman and families of the slain soldier are facing for telling America what this vile human being had to offer to this grieving widow we can expect those who object to face threats.
