The Guardian: America’s history of racist law enforcement emboldened by Trump

As the Guardian reports,

Violence against black men and women at the hands of white authority is foundational to the United States, and continues to influence its policing culture to this day. …

Not only did (Trump) fight a PR war against those who knelt during the national anthem to pay tribute to black lives lost and stand against the structural racism underpinning it all. Now a man who called for the death penalty against five black and brown teenagers wrongfully convicted of a rape in Central Park in 1989, had the ability, with a stroke of a pen or a nod to his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, to undo any of the progress made.
