President-elect Donald Trump’s handlers have done a lot of scrubbing to Trump’s Twitter account, but sometimes they miss things. Like some of Trump’s more racist tweets.
It’s The Same Reason We Don’t Have White History Month, Trump
On January 8, the New York Times‘ David Itzkoff reminded us all of a tweet from Trump, sent in 2014, that proves, again, that Trump is a complete moron.
How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled "Blackish"? Can you imagine the furor of a show, "Whiteish"! Racism at highest level?

Itzkoff retweeted it with the words “Never forget,” and Twitter responded.
As Twitter does.
Some made this excellent point:
@ditzkoff Yep. Definitely Racism's "highest level" that. Sorry, slavery.

Some could not believe what they were reading:

A few stated what we’re all feeling every time Trump opens his mouth:
So glad we didn't make this guy our Presi….

And, of course, several took the time to point out the obvious:

It's called "Friends" and it was very popular in the 90s and early 2000s https://t.co/LLm02LUnfP

Note to White people – we are represented in everything already. We don’t need “Whitish” because, as the tweet above says, that’s pretty much every show on television. We don’t need “White history month” because every freaking month is White history month.
Tweets like Trump’s speak to the White people who can’t stand seeing people of color represented on their own, apart from White people.
"When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression."
(For the life of me I can't find who coined this phrase, but wow.)
