Billy Porter of ‘Cinderella’ fame says ‘our country is in this mess we’re in because of whiteness’

Billy Porter, who has been cast as the fairy godmother in the upcoming new film adaptation of “Cinderella,” went full racist when he said that the United States of America “is in the mess we’re in because of whiteness.”

Porter made these comment during a recent Vanity Fair portfolio interview that he shamelessly used to promote various social justice messages from the likes of the founders of Black Lives Matter and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

“The reason why our country is in the mess we’re in is simply because of whiteness. White supremacy. White people choke-holding power and sucking the life out of humanity,” Porter said in the piece. This was his response to the question, “What is one specific fact, news story, or aspect that you feel has not received enough attention?”

Unsurprisingly, Porter also took the opportunity to launch a below-the-belt attack on President Donald Trump, saying, “Orangina 45, that cancer that is in our White House, has been handed the power, without consequence, to have his hate metastasize all over the people.”

“Why are we not talking about figuring out how to remove this monster from the highest office in the land right now! ‘Cause we might not be alive come November. And this is not hyperbole,” the “Pose” star continued.

“The public lynching of George Floyd galvanized the people all over the world to rise up,” Porter added. “It’s a wonder to see young people of all colors leading the charge. And…white folks are mad now, so maybe something might get done.”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

This comes one week after Porter ended the first night of the Democratic National Convention with a truly bizarre rendition of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.” During the performance, Porter waved his arms wildly as footage of Black Lives Matter rioters, the American flag, and kneelers for the national anthem was played in the background.

If Porter’s comments about “whiteness” aren’t racism, I don’t know what is. If the Left really wants to end racism once and for all, they need to stop attacking white people every chance they get.
