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.
