In the lead-up to the presidential election of 2016, people who paid attention to the news, newspapers, Twitter, or Facebook could tell that Donald Trump had a problem accepting people of color. His infamous “Mexicans are rapists” comments really started the ball rolling on the type of person he would be as president.

A lot of people over the decades have accused Trump of racist words, deeds and actions. His racism has been widely publicized so no one should say they didn’t know how he really is. The information is there, but sadly some people chose to ignore it. Since the electoral college saddled us with Trump we’re just going to have to endure him until he’s finally out of office. But we don’t have to endure in silence. We should all raise our voices in protest to the things Donald Trump says.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is doing just that. Today on Twitter he posted,

In case that didn’t just grab you the first time I’ll repeat it. We’re once again living through a battle for the soul of this nation! What powerful words. VP Biden first used them back in August in a letter he wrote to The Atlantic. He said this,

“In Charlottesville, that long trail emerged once again into plain view not only for America, but for the whole world to see. The crazed, angry faces illuminated by torches. The chants echoing the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the 1930s. The neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and white supremacists emerging from dark rooms and remote fields and the anonymity of the web into the bright light of day on the streets of a historically significant American city. If it wasn’t clear before, it’s clear now: We are living through a battle for the soul of this nation.”

His letter describes how this isn’t the first time this nation has had racial trouble like this…but it’s the first time one of our presidents has openly emboldened the oppressors. Donald Trump had the audacity to say that some of the neo-nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville were good people. It took days for him to condemn the violence the oppressors perpetrated on the people who stood against them.
VP Biden certainly is correct. We most definitely are battling for the soul of our nation, and we must do whatever it takes to win. He says we must take a stand, get involved and demand that our voices be heard. So let’s do just that!
Here’s how Twitter responded to his message.
