What Toni Morrison Knew About Trump
In her 1993 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, the late author cautioned against the distraction of the “political correctness” debate

...Her acceptance speech serves as a prescient reference to the fact that journalists and political leaders today are wrestling with the language necessary to describe the social and political chaos ignited by the Trump administration.
"Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence," Morrison said in her speech.STEPHEN LOVEKIN / GETTY / THE ATLANTIC
