Tackling a Trumpish America

Rev. Steven Shepard Contributor

The greatest threat to a Trumpish America is the intelligent, well-educated, well-spoken Black and Brown men and women who come together to lift the downtrodden, speak for those who have been looked over, left out, pushed out, thrown out, demeaned, disenfranchised and marginalized.

The greatest threat to a Trumpish America is US!
