Now What?

So orangeface won the election a.k.a Donald Trump. He is now President-Elect...

Let's just let that sink in for a moment.
Are you alright? Have you done some self care? Ran across any fascists trying to lynch you in the streets? If so I don't know what I can say to make it better. I don't know who you turn to when your leadership is in favor of your extermination. I really don't.
I feel a little selfish even mentioning it but I feel personally betrayed by white Americans. I feel like every single one who said that they weren't voting for Trump was actually a lying liar who lied. And I don't know if I can even watch any TV show starring white people right now.
There are like four famous white guys who have demonstrably indicated that they are devastated by the Trump win; the Carver twins, Chris Evans and Misha Collins. Everyone else is suspect. Because if 62% of white men voted for Trump, and if you subtract Gay and Trans white men, what percentage of straight white men are left who didn't vote for Trump?
All in all, I do not trust y'all lying asses even a little bit.
Yep. I'm talking to you Jensen

The thing is white American racist people, I get it. It's disturbing that #Oscarssowhite and #Blacklivesmatter is getting so much attention. It's disconcerting when Beyonce brings the 'Black Panthers' to the Superbowl and performs at the CMAs. It's disconcerting that she discovered that she's black..
Black Lives Matter went from a fringe terrorist group to a legitimate mainstream phenomenon. People were actually acknowledging that Police were in the wrong! After 200 years of doing whatever the fuck you wanted! Philando Castile died so #BLM could become legit.
It's all very....frightening to you; I get that.
On top of that Mr. Motherfucking Perfect Obama came to office for eight years, and did an outstanding job. Y'all can't have that! No. Better to destroy the country.

it has began
The thing is though...white people, trying to hold back the march of progress does nothing except get you left behind. You want to maintain the status quo as it was eight years ago or whatever? Try. 
But the genie is out of the box and it won't go back in.
Furthermore, the rest of the world just lost major respect for you, as it has with Britain and France. 
Your president-elect is in bed with Vladimir Putin who is determined to keep up this war in Syria. Do you really think that bombing the fuck out of Mosul is the way to defeat ISIS? Who is really hurt here? Your continued war against the Muslim world means that you're continually unsafe. 
All you hear out of you is bad news; being bombed, mass shootings, death and destruction. 
Trump will continue to fuel that cycle.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world is quietly working away. Importing cars from Japan, importing electronics from China, making trade deals with their neighbors, buying locally manufactured shit...I look around me and I don't see one thing American made. 
The West is being left behind. The people that you reject as 'immigrants' are what make your country great. If you don't appreciate the blessing, it will be taken away from you. Your current economic troubles are not because Mexicans are taking your jobs. It's because you're so used to living on unlimited credit. And then 2008 happened and y'all had to learn to live within your means.
It's hard to do that. We all know that. But you can't bring the pre-economic crisis world back again no matter who is in charge. You can only learn to live in the new world.
Or perish.
