Watch Chimamanda Adichie’s Response To Someone Saying Trump Isn’t Racist (Video)



​Nigerian author and renowned feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was on BBC Newsnight discussing the outcome of the American Presidential election with R. Emmett Tyrrell, editor-in-chief of a conservative magazine, American Spectator.

During the discussion, BBC reporter Emily Maitlis noted that some Republicans like Paul Ryan have acknowledged the racist language President-elect Donald Trump tends to favor. Tyrrell immediately got defensive.

“That’s not true. He hasn’t been racist,” Tyrrell said, ignoring many of the racist things Donald Trump has said and done.

Thankfully, Adichie corrected him, saying, “I am sorry, but if you are a white man, you don’t get to define what racism is. You really don’t.”

And although Tyrrell attempted to defend Trump, she brilliantly continued her shut down, “No, you don’t get to sit there and say that he hasn’t been racist when objectively, he has.”

She added that, “racism is an objective reality, and Donald Trump has inhabited that reality.”

You have to watch the whole thing for a lesson in how to speak truth to power.
