Trump's strategic advisor deeply prejudiced against non-whites

The Hill - Civil rights advocates and critics on both sides of the aisle are expressing alarm at the ascension of Steve Bannon to a senior post in President-elect Donald Trump’s White House, claiming that the former Breitbart editor embraced white nationalism and anti-Semitism.

Brannon, who was named as chief strategist and senior counselor to Trump, has proudly adopted the mantle as leadership of the nationalist “alt-right.”He has a history of promoting offensive statements against Jewish people, Muslims, African-Americans and other minorities at Breitbart, critics say, and has allegedly expressed anti-Semitic statements in his personal life.

Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, said Bannon’s appointment marked a “sad day” and criticized the alt-right as “a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists.”
