In a jaw-dropping video, a white Trump voter from Florida told a Black woman that racism isn't real and that she is white and proud.
On MSNBC’s AM Joy, Jonathan Capehart introduced a segment in which a group of older women from Sarasota, Florida discussed the election.
Capehart introduced the segment by talking about “Trump’s history of racist rhetoric, including his thinly-veiled promise to save the suburbs”.
He explained how “his message comes amid a stark racial divide in this country.”
That divide, said Capehart, was on display in the segment when Chris Jangsing sat down with the older Florida voters.
A Black voter said: “He has encouraged white supremacists.”
She added: “He is a racist."
A Trump voter in the group was outraged by this. She repeatedly said: “Don’t use those terms”.
Later in the clip, the Biden supporter justified her earlier comments. She said: “I will use that term because racism is real.”
The Trump voter, astonishingly, replied:
I know that it’s not because I’m white and I’m proud of it!
The Black Biden supporter replied: “My people are still getting shot without provocation.”
Another Trump voter chimed in and blamed it on Black people not listening to the police.
