Our national dialogue about diversity and inclusion, about acceptance and egalitarianism, is poisoned, and Donald Trump is holding a rather large pouch of poison.

Last week, we saw the arrest of a Trump supporter who sent pipe bombs through the mail to people who were frequent rhetorical targets of the president, many of them prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama.

Donald Trump is a racist. I am not saying he shouldn’t be President of the United States, but I am saying that if Trump is what America wants to be the person at the top, then America is no longer America.
