Trump's immigration ban exposes white nationalism and the crisis of imperialism 


After only one week of being in office, U.S. president Donald John Trump signed an executive order that bans immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from traveling to the U.S. on Friday, January 27, 2017.

The countries included in the ban are Somalia, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan and Iran. They are mostly-Muslim countries but more importantly, their people are involved in active resistance against U.S. and European imperialism.

Trump stated while signing the order that it was to "keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America.” He continued, “We don't want them here."

Trump's inauguration and the exposing of white nationalism 


Donald John Trump was inaugurated as the president of U.S. on January 20, 2017. He became the 45th president to take office.

He began his inauguration speech by thanking the past U.S. presidents that were present at the ceremony, including Barack Obama, whom Trump claimed a fierce opposition to during his campaign.

This shows that Trump is aligned with imperialism and simply used backlash against the black president to consolidate the white working class.

The imperialist underpinnings of the women march 


About a week after white people overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump, the Women’s March on Washington was born.

The march, also known as the “White” Women’s March in some black women circles, burst onto the scene claiming to come to the defense of marginalized women who were targeted by the “rhetoric of the past election cycle.”

Like me, you might be asking yourself how the Women’s March organizers intend to come to the defense of the African and Arab women, as well as women of other oppressed nations.
