Man Whom Trump Called ‘My African American’: I Don’t See Trump as ‘Racist Per Se’ But He Has a ‘White Superiority Complex’

‘So when one has a white superiority complex, that adds to the frustration for everyone else because there is no longer a level playing field’

EXCERPT:

CHEADLE: "You know, growing up, for me a racist was one who employed violence and hatred. With respect to this president, I don’t see him as a racist per se, but I do see him as a person with a white superiority complex. There's a difference there. And for me, it's easy to say that he has a white superiority complex when you look at his cabinet, when you look at his interns, his corporations with the posse of black people in there. I would say he has a white superiority complex. And there is an overlap between a racist and one who has a white superiority complex, but here, because of that white superiority complex, the rules, the laws are written by whites and enforced by whites. So when one has a white superiority complex, that just adds to the whole frustration for everyone else because there is no longer a level playing field."
