Racial politics haunt GOP in the Trump era

Susan Bro, the mother of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer, says she will not speak to President Trump because of his comments that suggested white supremacists and people protesting against them were both to blame for last weekend's violence in Virginia.

Cooper also said that a state law that requires state officials to approve any action to remove those statues should be repealed. "And I think about what I can do to bring us together".

"I look at all the animosity and hate", she said.

Trump's remarks came as the White house tried to manage his increasing isolation and the continued fallout from his combative previous comments on last weekend's racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"So this week it's Robert E. Lee", Trump said in his disastrous news conference. Lee was commander of the pro-slavery Confederate army in the U.S. Civil War.

Francis seems to have started to say that the allegedly "very good people" in Charlottesville were protesting the Robert E. Lee statue being torn down.

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our lovely status and monuments", he wrote in a series of tweets.

In keeping with his usual breakfast of Fox News and Twitter outbursts, President Trump doubled down on his support of Confederate monuments this morning.

He took aim at the removal or consideration for removal of Confederate statues and monuments in a long list of cities in states such as California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Tennessee, Virginia, and Texas. "I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Miss Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists. History is watching us all".

Kidd said he belongs to a third side: those who want to keep the statues for their historical value and because they represent their ancestors.

US President Donald Trump had blamed "both sides" for the deadly violence at the white supremacist rally. The 36-year-old is a former information technology worker who moved to New Hampshire from NY in 2012.

Confederate monuments are viewed by many as reminders of slavery and the darkest moments in American history.

"I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights".

In the wake of Saturday's events, elected leaders in many cities and towns across the country have said that Confederate statues should be removed from public property. And we should all take issue with a president who refuses to consistently condemn and distance himself from these hate groups every opportunity he gets, especially a president who isn't exactly known for mincing words.

But the belief that white people are victims ignores the structural reality of racism in the U.S., he added.

The experts who jointly signed the statement are Sabelo Gumedze, Chairperson of the Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent; Mutuma Ruteere, Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance; and Ms Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Although Trump condemned the murder and expressed admiration for the liberal activist, the rest of his remarks and arguments are widely seen as being sympathetic to the all-white, alt-right cause - which also constitutes his primary voting base.
