An editor for Ebony, a prominent black magazine and website, his wished death upon Donald Trump’s supporters for their political beliefs.
Damon Young, who is listed as a contributing editor at Ebont, wrote a column Wednesday explaining wy he’s voting for Hillary Clinton before wishing death upon Trump supporters.
“Yes, you read that correctly. I want these motherfuckers to lose. And if losing what might be the last winnable election for them in a millennia isn’t enough for them to move into the 21st century, I wouldn’t terribly mind if they withered the fuck away and died,” Young wrote on his website VerySmartBrothas.com

Trump supporters, Young says, are motivated by “hate and fear and loathing” and that he’s voting for Hillary because he refuses to live in an America where Trump supporters would have “any reason to be optimistic about their beliefs.”
“I do not want these people to feel good or inspired. I do not want them to receive some type of collective psychic victory. I do not want them to experience any measure of positive reinforcement,” Young wrote.
Young said that all Trump supporters hate him and “people who look like me.” The only way to change their hatred is for them to experience the confusion and shame in losing the election.
If the same is not enough for them to stop “hating,” then he wants the all to die.
“No, nothing besides confusion, shame, and, if the confusion and the shame isn’t enough to convince them to at least consider not hating me and people who look like me and people who don’t look like them, death,” Young maintained.
The editor also said he would write them a thank you note if they were kind enough to die.
“I’ll even write them a card. And the card will say ‘Thank you,’” Young finished.
