US establishment responsible for racial problems: Analyst

BINTANGNEWS.com – Reports of hate crimes and racially motivated violence against minorities have increased in the United States after the election of Donald Trump as president.
Shafaqna Institute for Middle Eastern Studies Director Catherine Shakdam believes the US establishment is responsible for the racial problems that exist in the country not Trump.
“I think the problem that we have today in America is that we have this assumption that Donald Trump institutionalized racism, Islamophobia and all forms of fascism, and to an extent it is true, but that being said, he did not create anything. The Islamophobia... that we are witnessing exploding literally is actually the works of the US establishment and has really nothing to do with Trump,” the analyst told Press TV in an interview on Friday.
She also noted that the current situation in the US is the product of “Western imperialism” and “decades of indoctrination”.
Shakdam also stated the US establishment has always tried to promote its standing and assert its power over the people by pitting different minorities against one another.  
Elsewhere in her remarks, the analyst said Trump has based his entire presidential campaign on the “fear” and “rejection” created by both the Republicans and the Democrats since the fall of the Twin Towers in September 11, 2001.
She added that although Trump cannot be blamed for the country's status quo, he has definitely benefited from it.
Shakdam further mentioned that Trump’s election indicates that the American people have accepted in a way every policy he has offered to them.
She went on to say it is better to take the blinders off and face the reality of American fascism, adding that people need to wake up to the fact that the US has been waging a war against Islam not terrorist groups, and that Washington has created terrorism in order to assert its own imperialism.***
