Donald Trump’s supporters, much like their beloved candidate, make it a point to create chaos everywhere they go. When they’re not physically assaulting people or harassing protesters, they’re pushing their racist, bigot views onto the rest of Americans – so it’s particularly epic whenever they get shut down.
Earlier today, Media Matters’ Carlos Maza caught a beautiful sight on film when two Trump fans got their a**ses handed to them for suggesting that African Americans don’t work as hard as white people. This amazing confrontation happened right outside of Trump’s new hotel in Washington, DC, where the Trump lovers were holding up an obnoxious Trump-Pence banner. Never the type to turn down an opportunity to boast about their privilege, these white Trump minions suggested that “white people work harder.” What they didn’t expect was that a black man standing nearby was about to give them a lesson they would never forget.
The black man immediately confronted these two idiots and gave them a brilliant history lesson, pointing out that all of the buildings around them were the result of the free labor of his ancestors. The man said:
“You see these buildings down here? Black people built the buildings.”
The man also perfectly pointed out that white people don’t have to work nearly as hard as minorities – they live in a society that was basically created to advance them and make their lives as easy as possible. The man continued putting the two morons on their place:
“As soon as a white person steps into America, they have an advantage just by being white.”
A white man standing nearby then jumped in to help the black man and called the Trumpers out on their privilege, asking them if they actually knew what racial discrimination was and what it felt like. Bringing up a previous incident in which a teen Trump supporter was kicked out of a Trump rally because his skin was too dark, the man asked:
“When you were a teenager… did you ever worry about being thrown out of rallies because of the color of your skin?”
Of course, these two knuckle heads had never been discriminated against, and they admitted that they had never worried or thought about it – which is the very definition of privilege. You can watch the epic video below:

Unfortunately, the mindset of these two Trump supporters isn’t uncommon. There are tons of white people in our country that refuse to acknowledge that racism still exists and that they have a privilege in the first place that has helped them through every step of their life. They refuse to acknowledge oppression, and are often enraged when others try to protest or fight for social justice. These are likely the people that Trump’s pro-white message appeals to, and their narrow view of the world is increasingly dangerous at a time when our country needs massive social change.
