Donald Trump Is Under Serious Fire After Referring To Haiti and African Countries As 'Sh*tholes''

The President of the United States is the subject of much criticism after making racist remarks at a DACA meeting yesterday. Donald Trump took to Twitter early in the morning to deny the accusations, but just hours later at a press conference Illinois Senator Dick Durbin expressed surprise at the President's denial - and confirmed everything the media has been reporting. 

"When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval. The largest group is El Salvadoran. The second is Honduran and the third is Haitian, and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said 'Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?' And then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. That's where he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from "sh*tholes" -- the exact word used by the president not just once, but repeatedly."

Pretty damning. The hateful words have been met with shock and criticism, with CNN's Don Lemon going as far as to introduce the news by saying that the President is racist. Even the Merriam-Webster dictionary had something to say. Their twitter account announced today that "reprehensible" is the word of the day, a little solidarity with Republican Representative Ileana Little, who condemned the derogatory remarks, saying "the statements of the president are reprehensible, they're racist, they're totally incorrect."

This #WokeCharlotte Meme Puts A Progressive Spin On SATC

We love memes, and we especially love it when they can creatively educate people. During its heyday, Sex and The City definitely seemed fresh and modern, celebrating women's sexuality, ambition, and intellect. Despite this, the show did air fifteen years ago. That's an eternity as far as woke-ness is concerned, and re-watching the show brings some seriously problematic dialogue to light. 

Instagram account @everyoutfitonsatc is on a fun quest to correct the decidedly un-PC dialogue. The memes imagine Charlotte as an outspoken bastion of political wokeness. She strikes down worrisome quips about class, gender, and mental health in an informative an succinct manner. Frankly, #WokeCharlotte is a hero, and we can't wait to see more of these memes.
