President Donald Trump made a symbolic move to reinforce his commitment to racism after Roseanne Barr was taken off the air by granting a full pardon to one of the most racist voices in media.

With Thursday’s green light from the president, Danesh D’Souza, who pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign finance laws in 2014, will likely restart his vile attacks on Black people by picking up where Barr abruptly left off.
D’Souza, a native of Mumbai, India, came to the United States to attend Dartmouth College, where he graduated in 1983, While at the Ivy League school, he endeared himself to racist conservatives as editor-in-chief of the Dartmouth Review, according to The Outline. The publication, which was unaffiliated with the university, was an outlet for racist and otherwise bigoted students.
Among his hate-filled agenda, D’Souza published an interview with a Ku Klux Klan leader that included a photoshopped image of a Black student being lynched on campus, Vox reported. He also published an inflammatory anti-affirmative action article under the title, “Dis Sho Ain’t No Jive, Bro.”
White racists valued D’Souza’s writing and editorial skills so much that the Heritage Foundation hired him in 1985 to edit its flagship journal, the Policy Review. By the 1990s, he reached new lows that excited the racist right-wing of the Republican Party.
D’Souza has written 16 books, some of them best-sellers, that defended America’s racist history. In “The End Of Racism,” he downplayed the evils of slavery. “The American slave was treated like property, which is to say, pretty well,” he wrote, suggesting that African-Americans owed a debt of gratitude to white people. He also defended segregation as “a compromise on the part of the Southern ruling elite seeking, in part, to protect Blacks.”
President Barack Obama was a primary focus for his racist venom. In 2015,D’Souza infamously posted this tweet.
It’s no surprise that Trump has a warm place in his heart for D’Souza.
