America was made by, and for, the "free white," a term meaning, essentially, the protestant Europeans of English decent.These did not include the Native Americans who were considered "merciless Indian Savages" in the Declaration of Independence, nor the black slaves who were considered property pure and simple (Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 US 1857).More alarming, the white population was losing its political clout.In 2012, Mitt Romney received 59 percent of the white vote and lost the election to the same black candidate. One hundred days after Obama's election to the first term, a Times/CBS Poll showed that 70 percent of the people still believed that race relations in the U.S. were generally good.Between the two presidential elections of 2012 and 2016, the white population of voting age increased by 2 percent, while that of the minorities (blacks, Hispanics and Asians) increased by 10 percent.The "alt-right" movement, the major white supremacist group in America, immediately held a nationwide meeting, sponsored by the National Policy Institute, in the Ronald Reagan federal building, few blocks from the White House, to celebrate the event with chants of "Hail Victory," "Hail Trump," accompanied by Nazi salutes and signs that read "Make America White Again," replacing Trump's slogan of "Make America Great Again".
