Donald Trump Really Needs To Quit Saying 'The African Americans'




Donald Trump thinks it’s cool to call black people “the African Americans.” It’s not. 


During the final presidential debate on Wednesday night, the Republican nominee made offensive closing remarks that reinforced his racist pitch to “make America great again.” 


“We need law and order, our inner cities are a disaster,” Trump said at the debate. “You get shot walking to the store. They have no education. They have no jobs. I will do more for the African-Americans and Latinos than [Hillary Clinton] can do in 10 lifetimes.”


There are many problematic parts to Trump’s pitch to black voters. He repeatedly implies that all black people are uneducated, unemployed and that we all live in inner-cities. However, labeling us “the African Americans” is perhaps one of the most offensive things he does because it dehumanizes, disrespects and denigrates black people. He has also previously called African Americans “the blacks.” 


Twitter noticed the insensitive comments and expressed their fury and displeasure over his remarks on black voters: 



Referring to a diverse community of people as "the African-Americans" shows you have no understanding that they are, in fact, human beings

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
