White supremacy is the belief that white people are superior to those of other races and thus should dominate them. What happened at Capital Hill Washington, is the major example of what a lot of people have to face everyday. During the election and the celebration of Reverend Raphael Warnick ousted Kelly Loeffler in Georgia’s Senate race, quickly turned chaotic and violent as an angry mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol, in an attempt to stop Congress’s counting of electoral vote to confirm President-elect Joe Bide’s victory.
On Wednesday evening President Donald Trump encouraged attendees to march up the National Mall towards the Capitol in order to “give our Republicans the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country”. Journalists documented the chaos in real time and twitter, instagram, and all the social media went crazy with images, videos and news about what was happening. The President-elect Joe Biden invited via tv President Donald Trump to stop all his supporters, doing a very strong speech “Don’t you DARE call them protesters” and not only the President-elect, said they weren’t and we all shouldn’t be surprised about what happend. When President Trump had the conference several thing he said bothered things for most of the American and people all over the world; referring to the terrorists he said “we love you, you are special”, and those words shocked the population.
While the chaos in Capitol Hill we could see how police officers knew how to not use the violence and so weapon, even tho some people were hurt and died, from the videos on social media police officers “opened the door” to terrorists and didn’t do anything to stop them braking into the Senate, stealing podium from the Capitol building, setting on a congressional desk and even a man broke into the speaker Nancy Pelosi office with his feet upon her desk writing a note “we will not back down”, terrorists put flags of Trump 2020 on the stairs of the Capitol.
Scrolling into thus images we can actually understand what the White Privilege is.
As we all know 2020 has been a very challenging year and with all the several stuff that has happened one of the most important was the movement “Black Lives Matter”, were we could actually see how police officers used weapons against black people, shouted several people for no reasons at all.
Yesterday fortunately one of the terrorist has been taken and he is in prison, and finally twitter and other social media suspended President Donald Trump’s account.
