If Bill Clinton earned the moniker ‘America’s First Black President’ with his 1992 saxophone-playing appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show, Donald Trump let rip his Inner Negro when he mic-dropped Crooked Hillary Clinton multiple times during their second debate, whether it was his “you’d be in jail” quip or his “Honest Abe” put-down. If being ‘black’ transcends ethnicity and defines a certain kind of ‘swag’, chutzpah and disdain for authority (witness the near-universal opprobrium he has earned from the GOP establishment and mainstream media), Mr Trump just became the baddest and ‘blackest’ man in America since Malcolm X. The man is a total rock star. Not even Louis Farrakhan (or Snoop Dogg, for that matter) comes close. Mr Trump, a white man, has performed a truly stupendous feat of identity politics by becoming the de facto standard bearer of ‘blackness’ in America today. And with his ‘jail’ jibe propagating across the web in a kaleidoscope of ‘Thug Life’ iterations, we may well come to look back on this as the moment when WASP became the New Black and a viral Vine decided an election.
