Are you a real American? Do you live outside of a city in a suburb or rural area? Are you a farmer? Painter? Middle-class white man, or woman? If so, you may want to watch this video and see if you can relate.

Now that the subject has been addressed, who are “Real Americans”? I can guarantee that many of you consider yourself a real American. However, does that fact that you consider yourself one, or even a Trump supporter, make you a racist, nazi, or klan supporter? Hell no. Are there people that do support these things and consider themselves a real American, sure there are, but it doesn’t mean that everyone does.

In this video, we see a variety of different points that are being portrayed, some of which are obvious, but others are very indirect. The first “shot” is at the media, which Donald Trump talked about as being fake all throughout his campaign, and how they aren’t considered real americans. Just because people don’t agree with how the media talks about a certain issue or person shouldn’t make them unamerican, however, it should make them real even more so because they take on issues that people don’t want to address.

(function ($) {
var bsaProContainer = $(‘.bsaProContainer-3’);
var number_show_ads = “2”;
var number_hide_ads = “250”;
if ( number_show_ads > 0 ) {
setTimeout(function () { bsaProContainer.fadeIn(); }, number_show_ads * 1000);
}
if ( number_hide_ads > 0 ) {
setTimeout(function () { bsaProContainer.fadeOut(); }, number_hide_ads * 1000);
}
})(jQuery);

Notice in the video that the issue of white power is addressed and how all the “real Americans” are white. People constantly make the claim that all Trump supporters are racists, white, and sexists. In his support, and for Trump supporters across the nation that are, in fact, not for “white power”, look at this picture from a rally in Florida this past February.

Veterans, blacks, and women. Two of which people normally consider to be of lesser value by the President. However, that thought seems to be contradicted solely in this picture.

.bsaProContainer-3 {

(function ($) {
var bsaProContainer = $(‘.bsaProContainer-3’);
var number_show_ads = “2”;
var number_hide_ads = “250”;
if ( number_show_ads > 0 ) {
setTimeout(function () { bsaProContainer.fadeIn(); }, number_show_ads * 1000);

We continue to see in this day and age that people are always looking for faults in a person. It is a common trend to take a previous incident and hold it over a person until they drown from it. Imagine being in someone’s shoes for a day who is continuously being called a racist or sexist simply because of who they voted for or support. Millions of people suffer from this day to day because of the fact they support Donald Trump, or others around him. The effect that this stereotype has on his supporters and non-supporters can not be overlooked.

This past election had people going crazy all over the country. We saw millions of people that decided they were not even going to participate, and I believe this was not by chance. The overwhelming amount of videos we saw making fun of Trump and Hillary, as well as their supporters, most likely led people to not vote. A recent poll, conducted by The Hill, revealed that 99% of people who voted for Trump would not change their vote and 96% for Hillary. The interesting result was that nearly 50% of voters didn’t vote because 1) they didn’t like any of the candidates or 2) they believed their vote wouldn't matter. As stated earlier, the amount of political sketches and comedies that made fun of the candidates did not at all increase the amount of people that wanted to vote.

Imagine a situation where an undecided voter runs across a video, similar to the one shared above. He/she then goes on to watch the video to see what how the “voters for Trump” are represented. At first, the person may actually be somewhat intrigued by the serene landscapes or the many different views that the people in the video are brining up, however, once that first guy goes “from here to here” the whole video goes downhill. Notice the constant referrals to the KKK throughout the video, what makes people believe that all “real americans” are supporters of klan. The idea that people who vote for Trump are connected to the KKK is completely fabricated and probably used to turn people away from supporting him, similar to the way that people who associate themselves with Hillary are liars and not true americans. So, if you were sitting on the line between voting for Hillary or Trump, or not voting at all, then a video like this would definitely have some influence on your final decision. No one wants to be labeled as something they are not, especially something as extreme as being a racist, white supremacist, etc.

var bsaProContainer = $(‘.bsaProContainer-3’);

setTimeout(function () { bsaProContainer.fadeIn(); }, number_show_ads * 1000);

Since the rise in social media, it is inevitable that videos, as well as pictures, will go viral if a large group of people support it. In the case of a presidental election, there is ALWAYS going to be two sides that are split, especially in our two-party system. Because of that, there are always going to be people who you like and people who you don’t like, and in today’s world it takes 10 seconds to send something out or post something about someone or something you don’t support. In the case of this video, SNL is a very popular group, and for me to say they made this video, or any other video, because they hate Donald Trump is very naive. However, they take commonly known stereotypes and turn that into a sketch or video that people think is funny, but at the same time it gives people a reason to like, or not like, a certain person simply because of how the video portrays them.

To put it in simple terms, people need to realize that when they make videos or funny pictures of someone, especially presidential candidates, they need to consider not only the effect it has on an individual person or group, but also the people that are associated with them.
