Accuracy in Media

New York Times opinion writer Ekow N. Yankah, who teaches law at Yeshiva University in New York, said she felt that children of color cannot be friends with white children after the election of President Donald Trump:

Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped. I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust. Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people.

He said Trump supporters and Trump’s win perpetuate racism from white people towards other ethnicities.

    Sure cause what other legacy did Obama really want to leave us, but a seriously divided America. In my experience growing up in the south, you never want to be standing too close to your black friends when they decide they need to be hanging with their homies anyway. They will always turn on you in a heart beat in favor of looking good to their black brothers. I thought we had grown out of all that crap, but apparently growing up never really happens for black people, all you have to do is tell them they are being mistreated in some way and your all off and running with the crap and nonsense one more time.

    This NYT hit piece from a Lawyer at Yeshiva U is shameful and a testament to why Donald Trump is so admired by most of Real America (the hard-working, prayerful and honest citizens who realize this nation is bereft of leadreship save the President and a few Congressmen and Judges). Anyone wanting to dig up the big ugly scandals in the bowels of Brooklyn with what some Rabbis have been accused of…it makes equal sense why the Jewish community is split on supporting our President and still clinging to the deadly sins of Obama/Clinton.

    Kids naturally don’t have bias, hatred and bigotry…it’s LEARNED BEHAVIOR…by their parents and guardians, politicians and teachers, songwriters and actors. One would think a representative of a religious institution would realize the Biblical consequences for damaging young minds with hatred and lies. Apparently, this lawyer hasn’t the time to write the Torah Scroll commanded as Mitzvot by G-d; that warning is ever so clear in the book of Leviticus, Chapter 19 verses 17 through 19. Of particular note, the Affirimative and Negative tone of these three verses are duplicated and triplicated in emphasis.

    And so, Ekow N. Yankah, shall we teach our white children to be cautious, to be suspicious and to distrust those of your culture and your race? You have given all of us a good reason to justify racism when it comes to you and your people. AND remember this. There are many more of us than there are of you. That which you sow, also shall ye reap.

    And this is why we have racism…because of ignorance and hate…….nobody learns anything…especialy in that class/household…..

    Race relations took more backward steps under our first black President than they ever will under President Trump!
