Letter: Trump merely exposed nation’s existing racism

President Trump didn’t create racism. He didn’t even augment the number of American racists.

What he has done however, is to legitimize the hatred for all minorities, and to bring to light the fact that America is still a racist country. That’s the only possible explanation for the chants of “Jews will not replace us” and “Send her back.”

I can’t help but notice a parallel with similar chants at the Nuremberg Rallies where Hitler said similar things. This is why bringing the nation together is a laudable enterprise but a very unrealistic one. I cannot imagine togetherness with any of the people yelling these obscenities.
