NYT Writer Says His Children "Cannot" be Friends with White People

NYT Op-Ed writer says that, because of Donald Trump's election, he doesn't feel it's "possible" for his children to be friends with white people, and he's going to teach them that. Is this really where we're headed? Does it need to be?

The author, Ekow Yankah, lists behaviors, character traits, and policies of Trump’s which he finds objectionable and essentially notes that, because white people voted for him, he will teach his small children they “cannot” be friends with them. Why? He makes the assumption that Donald Trump is president because people were in favor of his policies.
