A prominent Black psychologist is accusing President Trump of waging “psychic terrorism” against Black Americans, and warns that the “psychological trauma” experienced by people of African descent won’t simply go away if Trump loses the election.

Dr. Kevin Washington, the former president of the Association of Black Psychologists and the head of the sociology and psychology department at Grambling State University, studies the cultural and historical trauma of people impacted by the legacy of slavery in America. In a recent interviw, he told Salon that the president’s rhetoric has effectively given “permission” to act out on “white supremacist” ideology, but was not the primary cause of rising racial tensions across the country.
