At this point the scenario for full-blown genocide could unfold. Little by little every positive media image of Black and Latin Americans could be replaced by a negative image. There are already virtually no positive images of Middle Easterners in our media today. Under such conditions violence, possibly false-flags, could continue to emerge and serve as justification for further erosion of what little is left of the American Constitution. Moreover, these false flags could serve as excuses for Gestapo tactics that lead to an overt police state. The drums for war against people of color populations could begin to beat louder and louder on our news programs--e.g., "the lawless, rogue/radical Black Lives Matter" drum beat accusation of Fox News (that insinuates that all of these protesters belong in prison or worst) will eventually become simply "Black lives are radical rogues that belong in prison or worst." The so-called mainstream media will echo the same sentiments as the right wing radio talk shows and Fox News, but couch them in a more balanced tone--often echoed by Black and Brown anchors and reporters. Those journalists that resist would be replaced.

The problems that will erupt in efforts to round up millions of illegal immigrants from Mexico/Latin America and detain them will become the justification to use a "special police force" and the FEMA housing concentration camps that have long awaited these populations. Anyone else who dares to resist the Elitist Trump that would dwell in the White House in the guise of a "populist" would meet the same fate.

When the American mind is returned to full marginalization along racial lines the genocide will be openly celebrated. Modeled first after Apartheid South Africa and then later, the occupied Palestinian Territories of Gaza, the full marginalization (geographically as well as psychologically and politically) of communities of color will have been realized in America. Slowly the boarders of these communities will be constricted by skirmish, after skirmish (clashes with militarized police) until the population inside the communities will be cleansed nearly out of existence. Whites that stand in solidarity with communities of color will face the full weight of the Trump regime--costing them their livelihood, their freedom and even their lives. They will be labeled terrorists and, as such under a Trump administration, even their family members will not be safe.

Is this all fantasy or a real possibility? Genocide has happened before not only in other countries--it has happened here in the United States. Victims and those that carry out genocide for the Elite have been in denial until it was too late before. Should we do the same now? Should we refuse to name this possibility today in its gory details? What is the alternative to a Trump Administration? Is the answer the election of Hilary Clinton? Is Clinton the savior of communities of color? An examination of policies that she has supported in the past would strongly suggest the contrary. People of color (actually all working class Americans) will likely continue to be under attack from the Elite no matter who wins the election. There are, however, differences in the approaches amongst the Elite in their managing the "racial question" in America. If the Trump brand of the Elite (overt racist approach) wanted another shot in four years they could still instigate violent racial conflict with a Clinton victory, particularly if a Clinton win was perceived to be illegitimate. All of the irregularities of the American election process could be called to blame for "Crooked Hilary's" victory. But it would be more difficult by far to achieve a race war based on the rhetoric of Clinton or a rejected Trump. Many minorities will be, at least for a while, lulled to sleep under the illusion that Clinton cares anything whatsoever about them. The unrest would have to come from the Trump crowd--which is of course largely white males. Since America is not about to cleanse the country of this demographic any time soon, any crackdown to follow would mean the end of the uprising as opposed to the beginning of the end of the demographic. Clinton would likely use the unrest to help disarm the population overall and crack down on festering Neo-Nazi type organizations that, in addition to hate for racial and religious minorities, also despise much of the current Elite. This could be good for racial minorities in America, at least for the short run, while at the same time useful to the Economic Elite that feel the overt ethnic cleansing methodology being forwarded by Trump challenges the order they've imposed. It would, however, not likely stop us from losing more Constitutional rights.

Clinton is not the long-term answer of course. She and the Elite that back her are no doubt a core part of the problem. A Clinton presidency, however, could buy us time to build on the work of Bernie Sanders or some alternative movement that better accepts diversity and finds better balance between the left and right wings of populism. It could allow us time to bring into our collective consciousness the fact that racism is a organizing principle of the United States and within our society there awaits the potential of a new American genocide. The added time could help us awaken the general population to the fact that the Elite are using hate to confuse the issues, because without this confusion populism would reign instead of them.
