Trump’s victory speaks to the bias against immigrants
Against all the media hype and world ignorance of the ‘troubled waters’ that is American society, Donald Trump won the US presidential election. Britain in a surprise turn of events earlier exited the European Union against the backdrop of re-emergence of nationalism and populism. Race relations between blacks and whites in America are at an all time low, which is blamed on many factors. Top among them the continuing white supremacist ideology, economic turmoil and world re-alignments as emerging powers jostle to fill up the power vacuum left after the fall of the great Soviet Union. Immigrants are accused of taking away jobs from natives, causing insecurity by their involvement in crime and generally clogging up the system with their numbers. Americans even accuse them of importing country ‘substandard’ ways and cultures that are unacceptable to their secular and liberal way of life.
