News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Mar. 3, 2017: On Feb. 22, 2017, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, two Indian immigrants enjoying an after-work whiskey at Austins Bar and Grill in Kansas were shot – one dead – by Adam W. Purinton, a White man who was tossing ethnic slurs at them and suggesting they did not belong in the United States.
President Trump has campaigned for dramatic change in the enforcement of the rule of law in America. He and his team have decided that his executive orders will dictate the laws in the land. In one month, he has signed 24 executive orders, and they are attempts to make major changes in U.S. law. The content of these executive orders indicate a lack of respect for civil rights and the Constitution of the United States.
There was a crane last week with a hanging sign that overlooked the White House that read “Resist.” All over the country there are demonstrations and protests, and these actions are being directed at both parties as well as the federal government. Democrats are voting in favor of President Trump’s nominees even if the candidate has no experience in the position, and they don’t appear to have a strategy. The Republicans have concerns about some of President Trump’s picks, and they have voiced their concerns publicly.
There was a fundamental disconnect at the Trump inauguration, because there were mostly Whites attendees at the event. Washington, DC is known as the chocolate city, so where were the people of color? In 2009, during President Obama’s first inauguration, there were almost 2 million attendees, which included a diverse population of people of color, various cultures, and races, which reflected the composition of the country. Sixty percent of the country supported President Obama’s historic event, as the first Black president of the United States was sworn into office.
