now, you can choose to skate around all that stuff. and bend yourself in a pretzel in an attempt to defend it. and i'm sure you'll do both (maybe by saying something like "oh, he's just playing to his base...and is willing to discriminate against minorities when it benefits him financially...but that's not where his heart is at." or "he's bigoted, but not racist."). because you're psychologically locked in to the fairy tale that trump is not a racist. and nobody wants to snap back into reality from their fairy tale state of mind. me, i'll rationally accept all of those things as part of the mountain of ever-growing evidence, anecdotal and otherwise, that trump does not view black people and hispanics as being on the same plane as white people. i'm a liberal by american standards, but i've never thought that the bush family or reagan were racists even though both hewed closely to the racist "southern strategy." but trump is very different. it's not some unfortunate misunderstanding
but you know what the clearest indication of all is that he's a racist? it's when he says "i'm the least racist person." nobody who's not a racist talks like that. and trump does that kind of thing regularly. he thinks if he goes completely in the opposite direction of reality that it's more convincing. it ain't
there have also been studies proving the obvious: that racism is a significant driver of trump's political base
p.s.: you clearly don't know what an "uncle tom" is. it's NOT merely a black person who doesn't recognize that a white person is a racist. it's a black person who purposefully acts contrary to the to the best interests of his race in order to curry favor with the white power structure for personal benefit. though there's gotta be considerable overlap between the two categories
Your Trump Derangement is quite amusing
. Oh btw, as we discussed before.... Highway protesting... Not a good idea for some people unfortunately as of recent. Just as i predicted.
You clearly don't know the true
meaning of the word "Uncle Tom" ....go read Uncle Tom's Cabin. Go learn it's history of origin. I don't know your race nor do i give a ****....but a black man who sees another black man as an "uncle tom" is same as calling him a "House N" ...in which I've heard white protesters call black police officers.
BTW, i too can post a ton of negative stuff on people who hate Trump....so you wasted your time pointing out some of those peoples "problems"
Let's get back to the point. I guess people of color LOVE racists. I bet nothing pisses you off more than to see people of color who are conservative, republicans, and trump supporters. You want to know what scares people like you? 1. Prayer 2. The Constitution 3. Free Thinkers 4. Freedom of Speech 5. Black Conservatives. If Trump was racist he'd be all for abortions....Why wouldn't a racist man support something like that? You already know how many black babies are aborted......i bet you're ok with that.
He said his managers tried to weed out certain kinds of tenants. “What we didn’t do was rent to welfare cases, white or black," Trump said. They entered into a consent decree settling the litigation in 1975. The agreement contained no admission of wrongdoing, but required the Trump firm to institute a series of safeguards to make sure apartments were rented without regard to race, color, religion, or sex.
as for the evidence that trump is a racist:
-he was was once sued for refusing to rent to black people...by nixon's justice department
-an employee at trump's castle in the '80s says that when donald and ivana went to the casino, the bosses would order all the black employees into the back
hearsay. No evidence.
-he makes completely specious arguments regarding black unemployment, pretending that relatively low black unemployment is somehow proof that he is not racist. a non-racist would not make such an argument. because black unemployment trends plainly cannot somehow be disconnected from overall unemployment trends by a president
Stop it....seriously. Stop.
-he defends the existence of confederate statues that were not put up until the civil rights era (obviously not a coincidence)
I defend the existence of confederate statues. They are apart of our history. They've been up way before Trump and no one gave a **** about bringing them down then. Obama sure didn't have a problem with them. But now all of a sudden they want to take down Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, White Jesus, etc. Give me a break. We learn from our history...that's what makes this country so great....to never make those mistakes again. And don't give me that **** of comparing nazi statues to confederate statues....don't go there.
he demands that a black man apologize for reporting finding a noose being used as a door pull in the garage he was assigned
Who gives a **** if he was black. Why are you seeing color? God forbid a black man apologizes? Oh no....not a black man apologizing. Bubba and many others were wrong for their assumption until a full investigation was made. Only someone who WANTS to see race will make a garage pully a form of a racist symbol. What is wrong with people? Not everything is racist.
-he employs "white nationalists" in his administration
I wonder if their KKK card still valid?
-he called mexican immigrants criminals and rapists ("and i'm sure that some of them are good people"). reality: the vast majority of mexican immigrants are good people. probably more so than white americans due to being humbled by their circumstances
Because mexican immigrants can be criminals and rapists. You understand how human trafficking works right? Many of these young girls brought across are raped. Sure vast majority can be good but how do we know that when we don't know why they are? You understand that the cartel uses these "good people" to traffick for them. His point was to have better border security. And my god will you stop pandering to mexican immigrants...."probably more so than white americans due to being humbled by their circumstances." puuuhhhhleasse. ....man if you're white....that white superiority guilt you got is strong. From a minority to a white man.....please don't do that. It's offensive.
-former president of trump casino quoting trump regarding a black accountant: "black guys counting my money! i hate it...i think that the guy is lazy. and it's probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. it really is, i believe that. it's not anything they can control." trump, in a rare slip-up of honesty during a 1997 playboy interview: "the stuff o'donnell wrote about me is probably true"
Apparently he said he'd only let Jews count his money and no one else. All that is second hand conversation said in private...He denied it. None of this stuff would be admissible in court. I'm sure he's made racial jokes in the past in private.....I'm sure every man on earth has made a racially sensitive joke....even the pope. But apparently black people never had an issue with it then....& neither did Oprah.
-at the same location both black men and all female dealers were transferred off tables to accommodate a regular high stakes gambler
Robert LiButti was a piece of ****. He was charged with insulting black and female dealers with racial slurs. Instead of the Casino manager kicking him out....he chose to switch out the dealers. The Casino was fined for doing that.
-ran ads falsely claiming that a native american tribe looking to compete with his casinos had a "record of criminal activity that is well documented"
Who cares if they were native american? He's a businessman..... He's done worse **** to other white businessmen. If anyone competed with his business white, black, brown, etc...he'd go against them. He said the mob was connected to their casinos. Don't know how true or how false that is.
-said that native americans who "don't look like indians to me" shouldn't be permitted to operate casinos
No, he was talking about Mafia members running rampant on Native American Casinos. He said those people running the casinos "Don't look Indian to me" .....
-when a group of minority teens was accused of raping a white jogger in NYC, trump immediately ran an ad in local papers demanding to bring back the death penalty. there was no physical evidence, but the witch hunt resulted in their conviction. DNA evidence later proved that they were not involved, but only after they spent many years in prison. when asked about it while running for president, the racist sicko donald trump said that he still believes they are guilty. because...?
Yea. All that after the police made them admit they're guilty. I guess Trump and millions of people should have known that their admitted guilt was false and it was forced on them. They were forced to admit their guilt when there was no evidence to the rape. The only evidence was they were causing havoc in the streets near the incident.
-publicly suggested a whites vs blacks version of the apprentice
Oh my god...that racist son of a bitch! I'm confused...was he racist to the white people or black people? Omarosa is rolling in her grave......nm she's still alive.
-has the political support of major racists and organizations like david duke and the KKK. he has not disavowed their support, even going so far as to pretend not to know who duke is. "[the charlottesville rally was meant] to fulfill the promises of donald trump" - david duke
For **** sake. How many times does he have to denounce the KKK? Seems like the Lefties want him to denounce them every week.
Trump added: “Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to all that we hold dear as Americans.”https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/politics/trump-racism-has-no-place-in-america/2017/08/14/217214a8-810e-11e7-9e7a-20fa8d7a0db6_video.html
-regularly retweets messages from white supremacists and neo-nazis, including this one (he later said he didn't hear the "white power" part):
This was a mistake he shouldn't have made. At all. Especially on his platform. But let's say racist trump knew what he was doing when he posted that video of that one old guy yelling white power at the other old white people. Out of everything racist he could post....he chose that? "Let's completely destroy my whole presidency with one tweet to show my white power love to my fellow whities." I don't buy it. There's no excuse for letting that pass without paying more attention. He deleted it. Needs to do a better job vetting his tweets or not tweet as much. That was a very poor job on his part.
-built a political base through birtherism
He trolled him hard. Was proven wrong but went at him no doubt. He built his political base because people got tired of Obama's bulls**t. I felt Obamas divisiveness way before Trump was a thought. Hated him then and still can't stand him today. I was a Full blown Democrat when Obama was president.....he sure as hell swayed me right. Honestly, i'm thankful for that.
-said that a judge overseeing a lawsuit against him should recuse himself because of his mexican heritage. "the textbook definition of a racist comment" - recent GOP house speaker paul ryan
"And we haven’t asked for a recusal, which we may do. But we have a judge who’s very hostile."
That judge has a long history with Trump. He's the one that set up a class action lawsuit against Trump and Trump University. He was an Obama appointee. Trump felt there was a lot of bias because he's gone against him numerous times in the past, being Obama appointee, and against the Trump Wall especially because of his Mexican heritage. Trump felt that because of all those things he'd never get an equal shot with that judge.
Trump tells his crowd: I have a judge who is a hater of Donald trump. He’s a hater. His name is Gonzalo Curial. And he is not doing the right thing. ... But I am getting railroaded by a legal system, and frankly they should be ashamed. I will be here in November. Hey, if I win as president, it is a civil case. I could have settled this case numerous times. But I don’t want to settle cases when we are right. I don’t believe in it. When you start settling cases, do you know what happens? Everybody sues you because you get known as a settler. One thing about me, I am not known as the settler. And people understand with this whole thing, with this whole deal with the lawyers, class action lawyers are the worst. It is a scam. Here is what happens. We are in front of a very hostile judge. The judge was appointed by by Barrack Obama – federal judge. [Boos]. Frankly he should recuse himself. He has given us ruling after ruling, negative, negative, negative."
-has regularly attacked nfl players protesting systemic racism
I regularly attack millionaire NFL players protesting systemic racism. Trump attacked them because of kneeling during the national anthem.
-with regard to haitian and african immigrants, asked "why are we having all these people from ****hole countries come here?" rather than countries like norway
My family comes from a shithole country. Not saying it doesn't make it untrue. There are a lot of shithole countries in All over the world. Would you live in one of those countries or Norway? I'd pick Norway. Oh well....i guess im racist for picking Norway.
-reportedly said that haitian immigrants "all have AIDS" and that those from nigeria would "never go back to their huts" if they saw america
"reportedly"..... I'll stop there.
-suggested that 4 minority congresswomen should "go back" to their homelands. a common racist trope. 3 of the 4 happen to have been born here
Oh... god forbid you attack minority congresswomen.... Anyway, he said and i quote: "If you're not happy in the US or you're complaining all the time, very simply you can leave. You can come back if you want, or don't come back it's up to you."
Those four congresswoman....all they do is bitch about how **** and unfair America is....well, OK if it's so bad .....Leave....GTFO and let's see how bad American really is. They can go to hell for all i care....can't stand them. A couple of them are not very fond of Jews....but who cares about that.
You want to know what's racist?....White guilt. White people who "feel sorry" for people who aren't white because their skin color is "superior" to theirs. How the hell is that not offensive? The Democrats exploit the black community....in history and today. We all know the history of the Democrats. Let's continue giving black people in inner cities handouts because it will continue making them lazy.
Welfare destroyed black families. In 1960 before the welfare state's expansion, 22% of black children were raised with only one parent. By 1985, after the welfare state's expansion, 67% of black children were raised with only one parent or no parents. By 2016, after nearly 60 years of welfare, 73% of black children were born to unmarried mothers. Why? Because welfare pays more to single mothers than married ones, encourages more out-of-wedlock births, and the rise of fatherless children leads to men and women who do not pursue a nuclear family of their own. .....Let's not forget section 8.
You want to know what some of the things BLM stand for according to their website?
-Disrupting the nuclear family
-Getting rid of "hetero-normative thinking"
22% of Black Americans live in poverty
95% of Black Americans vote Democrat
