The news is using Trump as a tool to divide the country. This should be obvious.
This has been happening long before Trump though.
This is how the two party system works. It's just gotten insane lately because the criminals running things are losing power.

I would say it's we the people who are at fault.
Not so long ago we use to think for ourselves then 911 happened and the media found out how to use propaganda to think for us, and we let them.

How is being black and proud of it undermining to whites? And how exactly does it set race relations back 100 years or more?
Nevermind the fact that whites undermined blacks for generations here in the US.
I remember seeing a lot of posts (maybe whole threads?) from users on here a while back saying things along the lines of, "If black people can say it, so can I! I'm white and proud of it!"
In your mind, does the above quote set back race relations? If not, being black and proud of it doesn't set back race relations either.
Unless you (the general you, not you specifically) are racist. Then it probably would set race relations back for "you".
Personally, I think it's dumb to be proud of your skin color. Or race. Or the country you were born in. You had zero say in any of that, and did nothing to make those things happen. Pride should be reserved for accomplishments, not default categories based on birth.

Bottom line is Trump says crazy divisive stuff (and lies like breathing). Media reports it.
Then media is somehow to blame.
