Not only does a University of Connecticut professor believe white supremacy was the reason behind Donald Trump’s win, he has an upcoming lecture titled “Make America White Again–The Racial Reasoning of American Nationalism.”
The professor, Matthew Hughey, was on Fox News with Tucker Carlson this week to discuss his lecture.
“I don’t argue that white supremacy alone caused Trump to win, but I say that it’s a huge factor in his victory. For the same reason that 44 out of the 45 presidents of the United states have been white men,” Hughey said. “That’s not a coincidence; that’s a pretty startling fact.”
In the interview, Carlson argued that it doesn’t make sense for a “white supremacist” country to allow millions of non-white immigrants into the country, but, Hughey disagreed.
“What instead is happening today is the same as forced immigration from slavery. We brought in lots of slaves to the United States that outpaced a lot of European immigrants under white supremacy,” he said.
But Tucker set him straight when he said that the immigrants coming into the country now are not “forced”.
Still, the Hughey went on to say, “People are pushed in or pulled in to different nations for economic reasons, political reasons, what have you. The United States trades on using immigrants to do labor that the dominant class often doesn’t want to do.”
