Dear Drumpf Lovers, Chew On This!

Ilhan Omar is a Somali-born refugee who became a naturalized U.S. citizen at the age of seventeen. She is American enough to serve in Congress but not enough for Trump, who has shown an increasing disregard for the very principle of asylum. Rashida Tlaib was born in Detroit, to immigrant parents. Ayanna Pressley was born, to African-American parents, in Cincinnati. Her family has been here longer than Trump’s, and, as African-Americans, they are part of a population that was forcibly brought to this country to do its labor. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx, to parents of Puerto Rican descent, which means that, even if she did go back to where her ancestors came from, she would still be in America.

The idea of selective citizenship is not uncommon in American history. The nation’s first immigration law, passed in 1790, allowed for the naturalization of white immigrants only. It took the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1868, to establish that birthright citizenship also applies to blacks. As Jill Lepore notes, in her book “This America,” another thirty years passed before the Supreme Court found, in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, that birthright citizenship applies to a person of Asian descent, and it was another quarter century before the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 declared that all indigenous people born in the United States are citizens. Trump isn’t just attacking four women of color; he is reanimating ideas whose prevalence wreaked havoc in the nation’s past.

This thread was specifically aimed at the black Kenyans who keep telling us how great Mzito Drumpf is. He'll soon remind you that ALL of you are children of shithole countries, hata upae aje.
Yes we are from shithole countries. That is why we came back to attempt to change that. Mimi sioni kama kuna ubaya kukumbushwa kuwa zip iko wazi ndio ufunge.

I like Rep Ilhan Omar. She said that Jews control US politics which is factually true but Republicans want to crucify her for saying that while they let Trump get away with saying that he was grabbing them by the pu**y. It's just politics and nothing else

Exactly. If mzungu calls him mzito, I see on offense . What's stupid is to find black shiny assed African bonobos calling him mzito. What a cluster of bafoons .
