‘White people, come get your boy’: Black comedian helps rally white people against Donald Trump

It’s only racism when it originates on the right.

Socio-political comedian and Black Lives Matter supporter W. Kamau Bell — the odds are really good the “W” doesn’t stand for “White” — has joined up with former Rutgers professor Adam Mansbach in an effort to rally white people against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

Even liberal white people who would never vote for the real estate tycoon.

“I don’t care if you had no plans to vote for Trump. If you are white, he is your problem above all else,” Bell wrote last week on his Facebook Page. “Simply put, white people, come get your boy.”

The effort comes with its own hashtag: #WhitesAgainstTrump, which saw lots of action during Tuesday’s CNN Republican debate.

Claiming black people do their part to keep their own race in line, he pointed to presidential candidate Ben Carson, actress Raven-Symone and fake black person Rachel Dolezal as examples before calling on white people “to finally step up and recognize that you also (even more so) have a responsibility to your race.”

Donald Trump isn’t a Republican issue or a rich people issue or a human issue. Donald Trump is a white people issue….

Mansbach, a Caucasian channeling some serious white guilt, makes his contribution by participating in a long, strange back-and-forth with Bell in a post published Monday on very liberal Salon.com, where the author agrees that white people “need to have some pride in their race so they can stand up to Trump.”

“Whiteness is invisible for a lot of reasons, but primarily it’s invisible because white people want it to be,” he proclaims.

So much for not being judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of your character.
