President-Elect Trump: WE CAN'T HEAR YOU...

from here.


I.


As hate crimes against people of color, Muslims, and a Trump voter escalate our president-elect is mute. This, friends is not a good beginning.

Mr. Trump, you must pivot from candidate to president. That shift requires you to be concerned for Americans--all Americans even those you disparaged during the campaign.

Tweeting this:


is just foolish.  People are being harmed.Your rhetoric sparked or at the very least gave permission to this hate.  Telling us we will unite and win?  Win what?


II.

We need you to be:

concerned.
presidential.
at the very least, appropriate.


You must speak out against the hate.  Do it now.
Denounce the KKK's celebration parade in your name.

You told us you wanted to represent all of us in your victory speech. You said,

I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be President for all of Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.

So as one who did not vote for you (keep in mind you lost the popular vote so it was far more than a few people) I am confused when I look at the make up of your transition team. It is composed of mostly privileged white men and three of your kids. Really?

Your every action telegraphs your beliefs. Please do better.

III.

Friends, you can tell Mr Trump what you think will make America great again (I know the statement suggests you don't think it is great now), but perhaps it is a place to voice what is on your mind.
