Ta-Nehisi Coates: Trump Won Because Whites Can’t Stand Obama’s ‘Good Negro Government’

The black liberal who argued for reparations and called President Donald Trump America’s “first white president” is at it again — but this time he is comparing Trump’s election to the birth of post-Civil War white supremacy. This argument can fan the flames of unrest and lead to more racial violence in America. To realize just how explosive this claim really is, and to effectively debunk it, Americans have to understand his view of white supremacy at the heart of America and his deep pessimism about life itself.
