NYT’s Blow on Trump’s NFL Comments: He’s a Promoter of ‘White Supremacists, White Nationalists’
‘There’s no doubt in my mind that he is pursuing a path that leads him under the tutelage of being a booster and promoter of people who are white supremacists’

CABRERA: "You talked about objection to this. How is Ben Carson still part of the Trump Administration? How as a black man as a compartmentalization do you have to work for a racist? We saw pressure put on Jewish members from the trurk administration to take a stand to resign, they didn't, but do you think then that being African-American there should be no African-American in this administration?"
BLOW: "No. I just think that once you sign on to work as part of that team, then you're also signing on to being under the leadership of that team and Donald Trump is the leadership of that team. There's no doubt in my mind that he is pursuing a path that leads him under the tutelage of being a booster and promoter of people who are white supremacists, white nationalists, antisemites and so forth. Have you to ask yourself as a principled person in politics, business or whatever, is this something that I can condone. Can I put my name on this? Everybody who is part of team trump now is putting their name on that. That's a problem for me. This starts with Kaepernick protesting police brutality and trump's response -- his response to expression of grievance by black people, America has the same response. How do you respond? Does it upset you when people point out that there are inequalities, when people say there's oppression? Does it upset you? Does it make you want to lash out at the people who are pointing it out? If it does, then that says something about you. It says something about Donald Trump that from the time the black lives matter appeared on the scene he has been attacking them viciously and this express by Kaepernick was an expression of the back -- of unity with black lives matter. He's attacking that viciously. That says something about this man."
