We must reflect on the setbacks that beset the progressive community . We are experiencing the increasingly unvarnished form of American racism to those familiar with the U.S tortured history of lynching slavery, colonization and conquest. Front runner Donald Trump seeks to close this nation to people based on religion. In the past we had "no blacks allowed," " no Mexicans allowed" we now have "No Muslims allowed." This hate monger called for mass deportation squads of immigrants and referred to Mexicans as "rapists and criminals." He has been endorsed by former Klan member David Duke and white supremacist groups. We must recommit ourselves to the spirit of resistance and call for social justice that led to many of our successes in the past. No mas racism and let the struggle for freedom reign.
