The Real Scandal at the Republican Convention is Racism, Not Plagiarism

Millennial co-founder Christopher Hale has a new article at Time. He writes:

The politics of exclusion were in full force at the convention Monday night as the party aroused the concerns of white Americans with three populations that they think threaten American security and prosperity: immigrants from Latin America, Muslim refugees from the Middle East and “militant” blacks in American cities.

At a panel discussion on MSNBC Monday, Representative Steve King, a Trump supporter, questioned whether nonwhite people had contributed much to society:

I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out, where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about, where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?…

During the lifted portion of Melania’s speech, she said: “From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise; that you treat people with respect. They taught and showed me values and morals in their daily life.”

If only Donald Trump and his campaign had learned the same lesson.
