OPEN LETTER TO DONALD TRUMP ...
Please keep in mind this is just my family history. There are millions of other Mexican-American families with equally proud and impressive histories. But for now, we'll concentrate on my family. My grandfather was born in Texas. He served in World War I. YES. The First World War. He was wounded in the Argonne forest in France and we have all of his medals. He was a career service man. Originally, he was in the cavalry and when he retired from the army he worked washing dishes. All of my uncles served their country. They fought in World War II and Korea. One uncle lost and eye and his entire torso was horribly scarred from being bayoneted by a Japanese soldier. My older cousins went to Vietnam and my brother enlisted in the Navy and was a Seabee for five years. MY relatives SPILLED THEIR BLOOD FOR THIS COUNTRY. What did yours do? My relatives were all born here, drafted, and went to serve their country WITHOUT QUESTION. And miraculously, they all came back. They have all contributed to society working in construction as lathers, electricians, and so on. WHAT DID YOU DO IN VIETNAM Donald?
From what I’ve read, despite your claim that you avoided the draft and serving in Vietnam because of a high draft number, Selective Service records show that you actually received a series of student deferments while in college and then topped those off with a medical deferment after graduation that helped spare you from fighting for this country that you profess to love. And YOU want to run for president? Really? Donald?
You see Donald, this is what happens when you are a WASP (aka White Anglo Saxon Protestant with racist tendencies) you take all the cream from the top and talk shit about those at the bottom. You tell them it’s possible to get the cream but deep down you know it isn’t true and you laugh as they all try desperately to be just like you. They send you money to attend your seminars in hopes of meeting the Great One in person, however, you never deign to show up. You have one of your minions deliver the hopeful speech and lessons in how to be a success. HA.
What you said about Mexicans was not only ugly, but very telling. You are not a man of conscience, or empathy. You are a disgraceful human being who has filed bankruptcy more times than I can count (p.s. I have never filed bankruptcy in my life) but you rich white people seem to do it all the time. You all seem to have the inside track on cheating. My father did not raise his children to cheat. Or lie. Or run when your country needs you. You lack every quality required of a leader. And your stupid T.V. show is proof of that.
Mexicans, of which you are so painfully unaware, are hard-working, decent people. Even the ones that Mexico sends here (which you have wrong you stupid moron because those people are not "sent" here ... they're ESCAPING their circumstances). Poor fools. You see, they still believe in the American Dream and do not realize that that dream is no longer achievable. Unless of course you are born into inherited wealth. But again, that is neither here nor there. What I really don't get is why you care so much? Your life is not affected by these horrible Mexican criminal rejects. I would venture to guess that it's virtually impossible for any one of them to get even close to Trump Tower let alone actually get inside ... am I correct? I seriously doubt that you lose sleep over the Mexican rapist waiting to break into your gazillion dollar penthouse to rape your wife. Which if God forbid, did happen, you'd probably run away from screaming like a little girl
My advice to you would be to find a spiritual practice and to do some deep, DEEP soul searching. But honestly, I don't think you're capable of that because you'd have to have a conscience first and it's pretty obvious you are not in possession of one. I only hope that there is justice in life for people like you who are given so much materially in life, but who lack so much in heart and soul. The only way that that could be righted would be for you to be a Mexican-American and experience the prejudice and hatred that you yourself practice or, better yet, be an illegal Mexican who risks life and limb to get to a country where no one wants you to be and then try to make a life for yourself in the shadows ... struggling to survive financially and not be discovered. Or, perhaps better yet, be a black person during Jim Crowe. I think I like that idea best. It's called Karma Donald. And I really REALLY hope it exists and you get to experience your own hatred for yourself.
