Right wing politicians as enablers of racism

It is so sad and frustrating how the intersection of class and race is playing out in national politics across the globe. It was always there but it seems to have become more prominent now. Many people seem to want to overtly revel in this kind of racism. Right wing politicians are happy to oblige as enablers ( i.e., T.May and Trump). They always have an Other in their sights whom they can demonize through rousing the racist beast in their populations. It  is a great deflection tool. Meanwhile they rob all of their populations blind in collaboration with banks and arms dealers and the like.
