The ambush ot the two LA police officers was a vile act, and should not be seen in any other capacity. But the right wing reacts by name calling and throwing out racial slurs and invictives.
Not once do they ask the question of "How and Why did this animosity become so intense as to preciptate this action. Republicans never ask "why?" Instead they take the outward action or expression, ignore the historical and social context (Republicans hate context), and pervert and blow it out of proportions. They assign demeaning and hateful rationalities as though there is no pretext leading up to the event.
Trump did not invent this race problem that we are seeing now. White privilge did. He only exacerbated the situation. He gave explicit permission to his minions to act on their most base racism. The president sets the tone for the country. If blatant racism and brutality is the tone today. We have only one person to thank, DJT.
