Donald Trump and the African-American dystopia

According to an NBC poll, 54% of the white population would be “angry with the system”, which would have led white voters to support politically incorrect positions and refractory to the dictates of the traditional Republican establishment of Donald Trump, symbolized in the support of the outraged whites over 45 for Trump and the neo-Nazi and white supremacist parties that continue to control the spheres of power in “deep America”. The unequivocal objective of the supremacist groups would be to establish the “White Power” in a society in which demographic evolution will cause the white population to be a minority in the scenario of 2043 according to the US Census Bureau. Thus, according to their projections, whites will cease to be the majority of the United States population and will be displaced by the sum of the Hispanic population, which would increase from 53.3 million today to 128.8 million in 2060 and the Afro-American population, which would increase by 41.2 million current to the 61.8 million expected by the projections.

The Great Replacement conspiracy theory dates back to the 1973 novel “Le camps des Saints” by Jean Raspall where the “collapse of Western culture due to a migratory tsunami from the Third World” is described. This theory would have been adopted as its own by the white supremacist movement that denounces that “Joe Biden’s immigration policy seeks to replace the white population with non-white immigrants with the unequivocal objective of ending the white primacy of the United States (White Power).” The spokesmen for this theory would be the presenter of Fox News, Tucker Carlson who baptized Biden’s immigration policy as “The Great Replacement” (the Great Replacement), as well as Republican congressman Brian Babin who stated that “the Democrats are taking advantage of immigration to replace the US electorate with a third world electorate ”, so 40 Republican states are planning to propose legal initiatives to suppress or limit the vote of ethnic, racial and religious minorities by limiting absentee voting and prohibiting voting by mail.

For his part, after Trump was ousted from the main social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, he has just announced the launch of “Truth Social”, a new social network born “to combat big technology”, called to be the media speaker of Trump’s ideology with a view to the 2024 Presidential Elections and that it would be the first product of his company Trump Media Technology Group (TMTG). In the event of Trump’s victory in 2024, this will mark a historic milestone since it will represent the end of the sui generis formal American democracy and the beginning of an Orwellian form of government that will draw from the sources of the paternalism of soft dictatorships and will be characterized by the cult of the leader, the use of disinformation and the Orwellian surveillance of the non-white population and political dissidence, which de facto would be an autocratic government or a kind of invisible dictatorship supported by solid strategies of cohesion (manipulation of masses and cult of the leader).

African American dystopia

A dystopia would be “a negative utopia where reality occurs in antagonistic terms to those of an ideal society” and they are located in closed or claustrophobic environments whose paradigm would be the city of Detroit, a dystopian setting of a real (non-fictional) nature and the paradigm of the largest mass exodus of population suffered by a modern city during the last 70 years. This exodus was motivated by the combination of economic reasons (the generalized corruption of the municipal authorities and the fact that the high taxes for living within the metropolitan area were drastically reduced in the suburbs) and racial. Thus, Detroit would have gone from having 1.8 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area in 1960 (90% white) to 700,000 in 2012 (84% African-American), a centrifugal migratory movement known colloquially as “white fligt” ( white flight) since most of the population that emigrated to the suburbs was white, middle and upper class, leaving the colored population confined to the east of the city in an area ironically called “Paradise Valley” (Paradise Valley).

The X-ray of the preCOVID Afro-American population would outline a dystopian scenario, where 40% of the Afro-American population would live below the poverty line, with stratospheric unemployment rates above 17%, a figure that would triple as regards the population young black woman (51%), with the consequent collateral effects of marginality, underground economy and increased crime rates, favored by the lacerating lack of investment in public services and the existence of thousands of vacant abandoned lots and homes that must be be demolished by the City Council. In addition, the drastic collection of taxes forces to cut even more social assistance programs, raise taxes and privatize most public services due to the accumulated deficit and the level of the bonds issued since they cannot print money to finance their deficits as The nation does it, a situation that can be extrapolated to many other cities with an African-American majority.

The Reverend Wright in a 2001 sermon delivered at the United Church of Christ parish in Chicago expressed the need for a collective metanoia of American society “that transforms imperial military wars into internal political wars against racism and injustices of the United States. class ”, for which he proposed a fundamental redistribution of wealth through the reallocation of the public budget. Citing the “gift from the George W. Bush Administration of $ 1.3 trillion in tax breaks to the rich,” he retorted with a proposal for public funding of universal health care and rebuilding the education system to serve the poor.

Likewise, in a conference delivered at Howard University (Washington) in 2006 he stated: “This country was founded and is run according to a racist principle (…) We believe in white superiority and black inferiority (…) more than God Himself, “according to an excerpt published by The Wall Street Journal. Likewise, former President Obama, spiritual son of Reverend Wright and debtor of the title of his book “The Audacity of Hope,” in his book “My Father’s Dreams” talks about the vital attitude of the African-American population, marked by the generational stigma of “a racial segregation that has characterized the American future” in his words, an unhealed wound that will inevitably reappear during the 2020 Presidential campaign.

The totalitarian drift suffered by the US during the mandate of George W. Bush led to the fact that in the name of the sacred security of the State, the principle of inviolability (habeas corpus) of persons was effectively annulled, de facto establishing the principle of “presumption of guilt” instead of the original one of “presumption of innocence”, which would have remained an indelible stigma on the US security forces. This would be reflected in the arrogance, brutality, and racial contempt that police interventions exude in large US cities, constituent elements of the so-called “negative perfection”, a term used by the novelist Martín Amis to designate “the obscene justification of the use of of extreme, massive and premeditated cruelty by a supposed ideal state ”. The persistence of police violence against the African-American population and the practical impunity of the police, coupled with the media visibility of white supremacists who would have “the brotherly understanding” of Donald Trump, could make the once monolithic attitude of the women oscillate in their values. Black fraternities to remain on the margins of the violent protests when verifying the certainty of the words of the visionary Martin Luther King, Nobel Peace Prize winner: “We have learned to fly like birds, to swim like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living as brothers ”)

Thus, the rise of the movement “Black Lives Matter” (Black lives matter) and the explosion of urban violence in the city of Minneapolis after the brutal death by suffocation of a defenseless George Floyd in a new performance excessive and with clear racist overtones of law enforcement, caused metropolitan areas with high African-American population rates (New York, New Orleans, Washington, St-Louis, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Cleveland and Chicago), to erupt in violent street riots where lawsuits would intermingle social with those of racial segregation, forgetting the teachings of Martin Luther King: “Violence creates more social problems than it solves.” Likewise, we could witness the media growth of the civil rights activist Al Sharpton and a new great peaceful march on Washington (Martin Luther King, 1963), while leaving the phrase of Luther King “I have a dream” (I have a dream) , as an unattainable utopia in 21st century American society.
