CNN COMMENTATOR: All Trump supporters are ‘racist’

Atlanta, Ga. — Every American who supports Donald Trump is an all-out racist, according to one CNN contributor.

“He’s made it more popular to be openly racist. Tens of millions of people voted for him after he showed his cards for years,” Author Michaela Angela Davis, while appearing on CNN’s “New Day” to discuss a racially insensitive tweet put out by television star Roseanne Barr.

“Are you suggesting that all the people who voted for Donald Trump are racist?” show host John Berman asked Davis, requesting that she clarify her comment.

“Yes, yes,” Davis responded. “They may not be violently racist. Anti-blackness is a strategy that has been the foundation of part of the American Project…There’s so many different levels of racism and how it works itself out.”

“Most of the time we are operating in racist structures, so you as an individual may not understand that you are racist,” Davis added, “but you are working in a racist structure. So that’s how policemen of color can be participatory.”

Davis’ comments led to a flurry of backlash on social media, prompting Davis to defend her comments via Twitter.

“It’s fascinating horrified people are by being called racists but not at all phased by participating in racists activity or being complicit .. thank you for watching @NewDay this is not easy stuff,” Davis wrote in response to angry comments from Trump voters who were offended at being labeled as racist.

Barr, who was fired by the ABC network earlier this week due to a tweet in which she jokingly compared former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to a member of “Planet of the Apes” is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump.
