HOUSTON — The presidential election: some call it a miracle while others say a Trump presidency is a nightmare and even scarier to tell their children.
Houston rapper Paul Wall's wife Crystal Wall wrote a lengthy post triggered from her 10-year-old's son's fear of Trump.
My 10 year old son tossed and turned all night long in fear of Donald Trump being the President of U.S. Both of my kids cried this morning because they're worried about their friends of Mexican descent and their family members possibly being deported. They were saddened that someone could spread so much HATE and FEAR and WIN the Presidency! IM APPALLED THAT SOMEONE WHO OPENLY EXPRESSED SO MUCH DISRESPECT AND SEPARATISM TO SO MANY GROUPS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS, WILL BE OUR REPRESENTATIVE TO THE WORLD! IVE SEEN SO MANY DISGRACEFUL VIDEOS OF WHITE PEOPLE AT THE TRUMP RALLIES AND AT THE POLLS CALLING PEOPLE NIGGERS AND OTHER RACIAL SLURS AND STILL CALLING THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS SMH NEWS FLASH TO ALL THESE SO CALLED WHITE POWER CHRISTIANS JESUS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR WAS NOT WHITE YOU BIG DUMMIES!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. PARENTS LETS TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO RISE ABOVE BIGOTRY AND FEAR OF ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE OF SKIN COLOR, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC STATUS, OR JUST GOING OFF OF THE THINGS OUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS TAUGHT US. LETS TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO LOVE THEMSELVES, LOVE AND RESPECT THEIR OWN CULTURE AND OTHERS BELIEF SYSTEMS AS WELL. LETS TEACH OUR CHILDREN THAT BEING "TOLERANT OF PEOPLE" IS NOT ENOUGH ANYMORE. WE'RE ALL HUMAN! THE WORLD IS NOT BLACK AND WHITE!! I ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO TRULY BEFRIEND SOMEONE OF A DIFFERENT RACE THAN YOUR OWN, A DIFFERENT RELIGION, ECT. THEN FEAR AND "I'm really not Racist but..." RACISM CAN DISAPPEAR BECAUSE YOU'LL KNOW THE TRUTH. WE ARE ALL THE SAME
"He was really worried that someone could be so mean and so ignorant on TV and so belligerent," Wall said when speaking about her son.
"When he couldn't go to sleep that worried me, and I had to reassure him that everything would be alright," Wall said.
With the long-standing history of bullying in schools, Trump's campaign has offended a lot of people. Houston funny man and 93.7 The Beat host Rudy Rush aid laughter is the best medicine for his daughter.
"You take some good from the bad," Rush said. "I take it that Donald Trump put it out there like that lets you know that culture exists."
Parenting has never been an easy job — but parenting and politics, that's a challenge for the next term.
