What do you think he will do?
It seems like probably most of you think he will, how will he do it?

any policy increasing the wealth gap between the rich and the poor will also increase the racial divide - also trump could spew some more racist rhetoric like he did on the campaign trail (but i think thats unlikely)

Enable "oil pipelines" across/through property of yet another's in-actual-'spite' or from objections of their occupants.

Hard to say. He loves being "unpredictable". At the very least he may continue to be insensitive to non-white ethnicities and non christine religious denominations in his speeches and tweets. Merely being elected has emboldened some Americans to step up their expressions of racial animus. He may pick judges that are as indifferent as he is to prejudicial behavior thus undermining potential redress for actual harm in the courts. He may appoint someone to the EEOC whose priority is mollifying people while taking little measurable action.

Indifference has many modes of expression.

Only black people are poor and only white people are rich?
IS that it?

Probably nothing now that his rabid republican base has gotten him elected. He's a money man. He doesn't care about any of these social issues very much. If he really wants to do something about immigration accross the southern border it will be for economic and demographic reasons. He's already starting to backpedal on the wall issue. Trump himself is probably not nearly as racist as his alt-right brigade would like him to be. Maybe he's even a little less racist than Clinton! At any rate if he wants reelection he needs to focuss on industry or else he's going to lose the rust belt. I predict he will be pivotting like a motherfucker now so he can maintain the states he flipped and maybe even pick up new ones like Virginia and Illinois since Arizona could be lost due to demographic shifts. I'm just not convinced Trump's racism was very genuine. He just knew what it would take to stir up certain elements of the voting base. That was still a really irresponsible thing to do but the damage is done.

Anything that gets "worse" with the racial divides in this country will come from the Soros/Obama/Clinton camp. We're seeing the opening moves of this strategy, as they try to keep minorities angry over the "stolen" election (never mind the fact that their own candidate stole the nomination from Sanders).

We'll see if it lasts. Having good paying jobs goes a long way towards making people less willing to riot and break things. This is something I'm hoping Trump will be able to deliver.

due to centuries of racial discrimination (maybe you heard of slavery) black people are trailing behind in terms of wealth accumulation - and would only be slowed down further by traditional republican policies that hamper social mobility and only allow wealth distribution along family lines

I don't think he'll do it by signing legislation, but by how his behavior emboldens people to be gigantic racists. 4chan leaving the internet, to show up on people's faces.

When it comes to bigotry, words become actions, and other people's words make us think that we can also say the same things too.

I'd not be surprised if, the next time we have a ferguson-style situation, some black people decide that the federal government isn't with them either, and decide that they are the ones that need 2nd amendment protections, and we see something that is not too far from the black panthers.

It could get really ugly and all Trump has to do is be Trump.

So it is Trumps fault for the last 200 years?

i would be more than happy if trump tried something new instead of the same old conservative ideas - but i assume the republican controlled congress would rather stick with their proven policies (proven not to work that is)

You really think he is just going to hop on the republican train and go along with them?
Yeah, we will see.

My personal guess is not much more. The rhetoric served it's purpose and can now be tossed away the way every other inconvenient thing.

Don't know about that, he seems about to name Steve Bannon of Breitbart fame as Chief of Staff. Putting the man running the unofficial platform of the Alt Right in that position will only further legitimize the anti immigrant white supremacist voices in the country
