If you have been anywhere near the internet lately, you would have come across heated conversations about Netflix’s latest hit series, When They See Us… And U.S. president Donald Trump plays a big role in it!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – MAY 20: (L-R) Raymond Santana Jr., Kevin Richardson, Korey Wise, Ava DuVernay, Antron Mccray, and Yusef Salaam attend the World Premiere of Netflix’s “When They See Us” at the Apollo Theater on May 20, 2019 in New York City. (Photo by Monica Schipper/Getty Images)

Created and directed by Ava DuVernay, the four part series, When They See Us, dives into the infamous 1989 case of the Central Park Five when the U.S. criminal justice system prosecute and then convicted 5 underage black boys for the New York Central Park brutal rape of a white female jogger.

Staring rising African-American actress Neicy Nash as one of the accused boys’ mother, the series is a journey of multiple emotions as it showcases the frankly racist and unjust manner in which the 5 teenage boys were interrogated.

… And as it was in the true story, while everyone was expressing outrage and protesting the proceedings, the then real estate magnate Donald trump was calling for the death penalty to be reinstated in the name of these children.

Not to be one for modesty, Trump took out 5 full page adverts in the major newspapers of New York, in big bold letters, encouraging citizens to join him in his fight to bring back the death penalty. We all know how he loves the ‘good ol days’….

While we wont spoil the ending for you, an unexpected positive turn stemming from this release is the growing social media movement to boycott all (bestseller) books written by the leading investigator on the case, Linda Farstein, who has received her share of backlash online.

En demasiadas ocasiones, y con el afán de atraer para sí a los votantes de la izquierda radical, algunos partidos, incluidos los partidos nacionalistas institucionales, lanzan mensajes más cercanos al discurso político de la izquierda radical, que al discurso político de su formación. Estos mensajes que en demasiadas ocasiones se contradicen con sus actuaciones pasadas, presentes y futuras, hace que algunos de sus votantes terminen desencantados de los mensajes y promesas no cumplidas y busquen cobijo en un partido muchísimo más cercano al discurso y a las actitudes de la izquierda radical como es Aralar.
