Friday’s BBC Newsnight programme hosted Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Robert Emmett Tyrrell, editor-in-chief of The American Spectator to discuss President-elect, Donald Trump.
While they were talking about the influence Donald Trump’s presidency may have on racism, Robert Tyrrell who is a Trump supporter claimed Trump hasn’t been racist.
Chimamanda Adichie cuts in and said;
“I’m sorry but… if you are a white man, you don’t get to define what racism is, you really don’t.
“You don’t get to sit there and say he hasn’t been racist when he objectively has.
“And it’s not about your opinion. Racism is an objective reality and Donald Trump has inhabited that reality.”
