Mother Jones has released a video superimposing Donald Trump’s voice over 1960’s footage of African-Americans being beaten and harassed by white Americans during the Civil Rights Movement era.
It’s a frightening vision, and a very real comparison — Black protesters have been among the targets of Trump’s fanatics during his rallies across America.
In one widely-reported instance, a Black protester was sucker-punched by a Trump supporter. This supporter later told a news program that he enjoyed it and that he would kill the protester if he saw him again because he might be a terrorist.
Donald Trump has only encouraged violence against immigrants and people of color, saying that the two brothers who assaulted a homeless Latino man in Boston were “passionate,” and that “in the good old days [protests didn’t] happen, because they used to treat them very, very rough.”
The video from Mother Jones has already amassed millions of views. Watch it below.
