Can you believe it? Someone affiliated with the Donald Trump campaign did something that demonstrated a disturbing affinity toward the white supremacist movement.

Specifically, it was his son Donald Trump Jr., who retweeted an individual named Kevin MacDonald.*

Kevin MacDonald is a notorious anti-Semite (and California State University psychology professor!) who runs a website about “White Identity, Interests, and Culture.” Another one of MacDonald’s recent tweets suggested that Colin Kaepernick struggles as a quarterback because he lacks the leadership abilities inherent to his white teammates.

As the liberal site Little Green Footballs notes, this isn’t the first time that Trump Jr. has gotten caught appreciating the work of a prominent racist on the internet. And it probably won’t be the last!
