Dowdell on Trump’s Attacks on Ryan, Waters, Omarosa: He’s a ‘Racist,’ a ‘Sexist,’ ‘Misogynist’

‘And so that’s why this matters, and people need to realize this isn’t just about his attacks, this has real world implications on people’s lives’

RUSH EXCERPT:

DOWDELL: “I think it’s all three. I think Donald Trump is a racist. I think he’s also a sexist and a misogynist, and he has this masterful understanding of what buttons to push. He saw what the Republican Party really was, he saw what excited the base and jumped on the band wagon. I want to make a point why what he’s doing is so particularly insidious to black women. As a small business owner a study came out and said his rhetoric is having scientifically, in the “Washington Post” on Halloween. His rhetoric is having an impact on people, not just people who already have, you know, tendencies in terms of racism, but having an impact on white people generally, and let me tell you why that’s important because as a black woman business owner when I sit across the table from someone and I’m pitching business and they think I’m inferior or not smart, or low iq, that affects my ability to get business, to pay the people that work for me. If you’re a worker sending a resume out and people have this unconscious or implicit buys Ya, that affects — bias, that affects their ability to get a job. If you have a resume that’s better than a white counter part but if you have a black sounding name, that you are likely not to get that job. And so that’s why this matters, and people need to realize this isn’t just about his attacks, this has real world implications on people’s lives.”
