    Let's just agree to disagree with your premise:

    I. e., lots of white voters don't vote excusely on basis of the person's race...

    More do on the basis of regional issues too...

    fyi

    The short answer to the question is, horrible, Sister Destee. If this terrible thing were to happen, my life, yours and nearly every other persons' of color, would be a nightmare. Black folk would be under a police state, so to speak. The article below further highlights this problem:


    President Donald Trump would likely doom criminal justice reform


    ... On the campaign trail, the Republican presidential candidate has been somewhat of an enigma on criminal justice issues. Trump's website includes no platform on criminal justice issues. Reform advocates have long complained to me that they have trouble getting in touch with his campaign to get an idea of his views. On the campaign trail, he's almost never talked at length about what he thinks about criminal justice issues. (His campaign also didn't get back to me for this piece.) ...

    Donald Trump wants to bring back the "tough on crime" policies that helped cause mass incarceration

    Trump hasn't always been very specific when it comes to criminal justice policy. But there have been some very big clues.

    Former President, Jimmy Carter, is absolutely correct on this, we touch and agree:

    Washington (AFP) - Former US president Jimmy Carter is decrying the resurgence of racial tensions coinciding with the rise of Donald Trump, warning that the billionaire tycoon's White House candidacy has tapped a reservoir of "inherent racism" ...

    Those 11+ million immigrants probably won't be going back to Mexico peacefully. I can't imagine that. I predict there will be a lot of chaos with them, if not violence.

    So, Black folk aren't the only ones concerned about this debacle; President Obama has to offer reason to offset worries:

    Trump won't get elected once former President Bill Clinton and current President Barack Obama hit the stump. It'll be a blowout.

    Peep game, people. Don't buy into the hype.
