Some of us thought, at least I did, that when America elected its first Black president with Barack Obama that racism in our country was at least beginning to wane.But then came the election of 2016 and Donald J. Trump, who made it seem OK for the millions of Americans who harbored racist attitudes that had actually hardened during the Obama years to come out of the closet, so to speak.Trump, a world class racist in his own right, made it OK to be racist again.Now, the Republican Party is dealing with that, and many have chosen either to ignore the reality of racism within their own ranks, or to pretend it doesn’t even exist.Apparently, Sen. Tim Scott, the only Black Republican in the U.S. Senate, is in that last group. At least that what he said on TV the other night.Take a listen to Steve Hamelman’s piece from Not Fake News.biz. It’s called “American Racism: Republican Denial Continues.”
