Trump branded hotel to celebrate the Antebellum South-you know, back when Blacks were slaves

Trump branded hotel to celebrate the Antebellum South-you know, back when Blacks were slaves

By Stephen A. Crockett, Jr.

A planned Cleveland, Miss., Trump-branded hotel will celebrate the antebellum South with a replica-style Southern plantation complete with a cotton-gin-styled meeting hall, because of course it would.

The project, which will bear the Trump name, will cost some $20 million and will reportedly have “a resort-caliber pool, place decorative balconies on the main building, and construct a hill for another building—a faux Southern mansion,” Bloomberg reports. “The property’s 17 acres will have a spa, bars, and a meeting hall styled as a cotton gin.”

Why would anyone want to celebrate a time when whites owned … wait, of course this makes sense, considering the “Make America great again” lifestyle. The South has a fascination with the past, and don’t be fooled—by “the past,” I don’t just mean a time when everyone had a porch and sipped mint juleps. I’m sure that’s a part of it, but let’s be clear: This fascination with the antebellum past has a whole lot to do with America’s convoluted history. For every bit of pearl clutching, there were also slave quarters. But America is f—– up this way: It continues to celebrate a time when people in the country were enslaved, under the guise of acknowledging history.

Antebellum nostalgia is also seen in the growing popularity of plantations as locations for weddings, as Attn: noted earlier this year:

Clearly, but none of this is surprising considering that the president of racial hatred was upset that the beautiful statues of racists from the Confederacy were being removed because, you know, they are racists and didn’t want Blacks to be free.
