President Donald Trump Undercuts Gold Star Widow Myeshia Johnson. When will America show outrage for the way Trump is treating these two Black women who the President Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly. If these women were White there would be national outrage! I am disgusted but my life has taught me that there are far too few decent people in America, far to few. The double standard is obvious. We will never receive equal concern and respect in America because the vast majority of White people do not give a damn about Black people and this includes lots of liberals as well as of course conservatives. I have not said the "Pledge of Allegiance or sang the Star Spangled Banner since I was in the 8th grade and I never will. I do not support their lie. They are not inspirational to me, they are hypocritical, phony as Frederick Douglas said " your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages."
