Michael Eric Dyson: Trump slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ Is Racist


You ever notice that liberals can find a way to label everything a Republican does, says, or thinks—RACIST. If you criticize one of President Obama’s programs you are a Racist, when Charlie Rangel got caught with his hand in the cookie jar by the House committee on Ethics it was racist, heck if you buy an ice cream pop from the Mr. Softie truck it’s racist. For liberals, everything is racist.  This is just another whacko example.

While appearing on Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes,” former MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson claimed that “Make America Great Again” is really racial “code” for “white nationalism.”  Worse yet, he claimed that race is a subconscious factor in the general election.

Newsbusters reported:

After fellow guest and author Alexander Zaitchik recalled that he has spent several months immersed with Donald Trump supporters and believes that their support of the GOP presidential candidate is based on economics and not race, Dyson responded by theorizing that race is a factor subconsciously.

“It relates to the point that was just made by brother Zaitchik in regard to, it’s not a conscious choice of many white brothers and sisters. If you polled them and asked them, they would deny it. But isn’t that the lure of whiteness? Whiteness has been rendered invisible,” he said.

“It has been the default position of American identity so that whiteness and nation are seen to be indissolubly linked. And, as a result of that, you don’t have to talk about whiteness. All you have to do is talk about making America great again. Black people hear those code words, and they understand what they mean,” he added.

Ah! It’s subconsciously racist.
