Target: Donald Trump
Goal: Criticize Trump for tweeting a racist meme from a Neo-Nazi with fabricated statistics about race and crime.
Donald Trump recently tweeted a racist meme that showed completely made up statistics about race and crime with numbers meant to perpetuate racism against black Americans.
The graphic was supposedly from the “Crime Statistics Bureau — San Francisco,” but the bureau doesn’t exist and the statistics are wildly inaccurate. An example of this is one statistic that alleges that 81 percent of white people are killed by black people, but it’s actually 14 percent as reported by the FBI.
The graphic originated from a Neo-Nazi Twitter account that shares mostly racist memes. This isn’t the first time Trump has used racism in an attempt to further his campaign. The presidential candidate continually spreads misinformation and hate on a public platform, and it’s disgusting and wrong.
Tell Donald Trump how abhorrent and dangerous his awful words are, and that they must come to an end.
Dear Mr. Trump,
With your continued hate speech against anyone who isn’t a white male, you appear to be one of the most hateful, bigoted and straight up ignorant people in our modern day. Not only did you insult thousands of Mexicans and Latinos across the country when you called them rapists and criminals, you also have said you would use the kind of procedures used in Nazi Germany to now fight terrorist Muslims in the U.S.
Now you’ve managed to target yet another minority, and at this rate it seems almost safe to say you’re the newest kind of Neo-Nazi. Spreading lies like the ones perpetuated in the made up graphic you tweeted is the kind of thing that encourages violence against black Americans.
You’ll never deserve to be president, and with the way you continue to isolate the American people, you never will hold that honorable seat.
[Your Name Here]
