This will set us back 80 years.

Byline: BONNIE GREER chicago-born author and critic

THE election of Donald Trump extinguishes 80 years of hard-fought and dearly-won social justice, equality and peace.

Trump's view of the Black community - "Join me, what have you got to lose?" - is simplistic in the extreme and dangerous. What he calls the "black community" is some teeming scene straight out of a 70s blaxploitation movie. His election allows a culture to flourish that will harm not only people of colour but the fabric of the Republic itself.

I'm not sure he knows this or cares. So if you're black, brown, red, yellow or any variation right now in America, you just don't know what lies ahead.
