Is Donald Trump Really a Racist?

Is Donald Trump Really a Racist?

It is almost certainly not.

Not only would this have been discovered LONG before he decided to run for office as a Republican, but he would have been utterly unable to get along on the upper-class social scene in progressive, multicultural New York as he did in the 1980s, and a lot less. in subsequent decades. You certainly wouldn't take a photo with well-known black athletes if you were racist against blacks.

It is almost certainly not.

Not only would this have been discovered LONG before he decided to run for office as a Republican, he would have been utterly unable to get along on the upper-class social scene in progressive, multicultural New York as he did in the 1980s, and a lot less. in subsequent decades. You certainly wouldn't take a photo with well-known black athletes if you were racist against blacks. It certainly would have established a kind of "whites only" rule on his golf clubs and with his Miss Universe pageants. If he were an anti-Semite as some have alleged, he would ABSOLUTELY not have allowed his daughter to marry Jared Kushner, and he would not have allowed his daughter to convert to Judaism, let alone stay on good terms with them all these years. later!

To evaluate this type of claim at a deeper level, it is important to know the difference between racism, prejudice, and stereotypes. Racism is the belief in the superiority of one over another based mainly or wholly on race. Almost no one alive today fits this criteria. For the few who do, society has largely conditioned them to hide it, fearing severe ostracism. If you review each of the statements that purport to show that he is a racist while knowing the true definitions of the words racism, discrimination, and stereotypes, and you know that one cannot know the content of another person's mind, it becomes clear how outrageous ALL of them are. Accusations that Trump is racist are.

You may have noticed that no one had ever accused him of being a racist before he officially ran for Republican office. Given that nearly every Republican candidate after Eisenhower has been accused of being racist countless times, the timing of those accusations is hardly surprising. More importantly, however, it is an important thing to keep in mind when determining whether you are racist or not, because it establishes a clear lack of a history of racism, and people do not tend to magically become racist after 70 years or more in his life. life.

One of the other claims made about him is that he "says bad things" to people who happen to be <insert minority group here>. Simply saying bad things about someone who is of a different gender or race than you does not make one a sexist / fanatic / racist, especially when it is retaliatory, which describes the vast majority of verbal attacks that Trump has made. thrown against several people.

The most substantial claim of racism that was launched against him was that the Trump Organization, before it was even called that, and shortly after Trump took control, was hit with a lawsuit (along with many other similar companies), alleging that they discriminated on the basis of race with respect to their rental practices. If the allegation were found to be true, it would not yet prove personal racism on Trump's behalf, as it is unknown which person in a large organization would have initiated that policy, and such a lawsuit is likely not seeking to establish that. Even so, it will most likely only prove discrimination rather than actual racism, and it is most likely discrimination based on stereotypes about what kind of people are most likely to cause them trouble in their duty as property owners / managers. and, therefore, what type of tenants were more or less likely to be profitable. Everyone discriminates every day, like when they decide to kiss their spouse rather than a complete stranger. Accusations of racism involved in corporate politics are extremely difficult to prove as they generally boil down to discrimination based on other (legal) reasons. For example, a discriminatory practice could be applied exclusively for risk management or other economic reasons, how an insurance company might do when deciding how much to charge male and female drivers for car insurance. Furthermore, the lawsuit was settled out of court, most likely because its very existence generated very bad publicity, even then. A true racist would have tried to fight the lawsuit by claiming that they should have the right to discriminate on the basis of race, or that they thought it unfair that they were forced to negotiate with certain races; a true racist probably wouldn't solve the case.

A true racist would have tried to fight the lawsuit by claiming that they should have the right to discriminate on the basis of race, or that they thought it unfair that they were forced to negotiate with certain races; a true racist probably wouldn't solve the case.

All this despite the fact that his son-in-law is Jewish and his daughter converted to Judaism; both with whom he remains on excellent terms.

But as you can see, it's very easy to just call someone a racist and make up some kind of embarrassingly poor example wrapped in tons of misleading rhetoric as "proof", while it actually takes some effort to disprove such claims. The result is that most people who have already been persuaded to WANT to believe that they are racist simply ignore the facts, avoid looking for them, and simply choose to believe that they are racist, despite the absence of facts to support them.

I'm a black man in my 40s who doesn't like DJT and I never voted for a Republican president. I can say with certainty that I do not believe that Donald Trump is a racist.

Donald Trump, in my opinion, is a purely transactional human being. DJT does not have a strictly static view of right versus wrong, or good versus bad. DJT believes in being loyal to people, as long as that loyalty serves its purpose at the time. DJT believes in being kind to foreign leaders who are kind to him, regardless of what is in the interest of the nation or its people. DJT cares about what is best for DJT in the first place

Donald Trump, in my opinion, is a purely transactional human being. DJT does not have a strictly static view of right versus wrong, or good versus bad. DJT believes in being loyal to people, as long as that loyalty serves its purpose at the time. DJT believes in being kind to foreign leaders who are kind to him, regardless of what is in the interest of the nation or its people. DJT cares about the best for DJT, first and foremost.

I have seen racists and white supremacists for years. Obviously, I do not agree with what they represent. However, white supremacists generally believe that they are fighting for a cause that is bigger than themselves. They think they are fighting for their race as a whole. They often believe that they are fighting for God. Whether they fight for those things or not, they believe. A racist has morals, but that morals is bad.

Do you think DJT cares about a race of people, even if it's his own? Do you think Trump could name 3 members of the confederation? Do you think Trump would fight for God, or does Trump believe that God would fight for Trump? Do you really think that Donald Trump even once in 2017, got down on his knees and asked God for guidance or help? Has Donald Trump ever apologized for something, or even admitted a mistake as president? I don't know if Trump has a moral that extends beyond himself.

Donald Trump knows who his followers are. You know who is for you and who is against you. He knows that his supporters support the Confederate monuments and that the protesters who are against him are also against the Confederate monuments. It is easy to assume then that Trump likes one group because of their beliefs and he doesn't like the other group because of their beliefs. Trump cares about his actions, and specifically about his votes. Donald Trump doesn't like black voters collectively as a group. I have no qualms about making that statement. However, he does not like us because we are against him, not because of our race or his morality (if any). If we showed him loyalty first, he would bring BLM and the NAACP to the White House every month. To be able to call Trump a racist, He would have to admit that he believes in something bigger than his re-election. I do not think it does.

There is no use listing all the things he said and did that might or might not be considered racist. I'm not interested in fighting in the mud. So I will only provide one incident.

In 2016, Trump alleged that the presiding judge against Trump University was biased against him. It concluded that since the judge was of Mexican descent, he could not render a fair ruling.

Trump's thinking seemed to be "I said bad things about Mexicans and I want to build a wall, so all Mexicans now don't like me, so a son of Mexican parents will surely rule against me." What is some kind of definition of racism in textbooks?

Trump's thinking seemed to be "I said bad things about Mexicans and I want to build a wall, so all Mexicans now don't like me, so a son of Mexican parents will surely rule against me." Which is kind of a textbook definition of racism: believing that all people of a certain racial / ethnic group think and act the same way.

But don't take my word for it:

The condemnation of comments made by Donald Trump about a federal judge reached the heights of the national Republican leadership when the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States, Paul Ryan, rebuked the presumptive presidential candidate of the Republican Party on June 7, 2016.

"I reject these comments," said the Wisconsin Republican. "Claiming that a person cannot do the job because of their race is something like the textbook definition of a racist comment. I think that should be absolutely rejected. It is absolutely unacceptable."

Ah, on the day when at least some Republicans still had a thorn in them!

Now obviously there are different kinds of racism. And to be fair, as far as I know, Trump has never promoted violence against a certain race or introduced measures that specifically discriminate against certain minorities. It does not appear that he is a racist by conviction.

Instead, he just doesn't give a damn about people who aren't like him - that is, rich and successful - and he attacks any person or group if that gives him a political advantage. This happens to include people of color. For example, he's trying to shut down George Floyd's protests because he just doesn't care that the police kill people in the line of duty, regardless of whether the victims are black or white.

However, it goes a little further. He is what I call an opportunistic racist. He despises Mexicans, not because he really doesn't like them; He does it because his voters do, and he loves him for saying what they wanted to say for years. I bet he would be furious at white Americans of, say, Irish descent if that made him more popular. However, by doing that, he has become a champion of the racists, regardless of whether that was his intention or not. And that encourages his followers to act accordingly:

A team at the University of North Texas recently produced a study that found that counties that hosted a Trump campaign rally in 2016 saw a 226% increase in reported hate incidents in comparable counties that did not host such a rally.

Last month at a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, Trump questioned the patriotism of Somalia-born Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and then fell silent for 13 seconds as the crowd shouted loudly, "Send her out! Return!"

At a rally earlier this year in Panama City Beach, Florida, Trump pointed out the obstacles that U.S. Border Patrol agents face in preventing migrants from entering the country. "How do you stop these people?" I ask.

"Shoot them!" yelled someone in the crowd. Trump smiled, shook his head and said, “Only in the Panhandle can you get away with that statement. Only in the Panhandle! "

He doesn't even have to say the racist things himself. He just needs to let his followers speak and act for him; your reactions make it more than clear that you approve. And if you think that's not enough to call Trump a racist, imagine Obama organizing such demonstrations and black people behaving like Trump supporters do. There would be national outrage and Obama would be called a racist. That's right!

Racism was a prominent issue during Trump's election campaign and has been during his presidency. You don't need a statement list to see that.

An Oral History of Trump's Bigotry

Trump keeps saying racist things. Here's an ever-growing list of examples.

Race is a social construction. All humans are 99.9% the same, and race does not really exist, since we are all homo sapiens. In the past, with the rise of Social Darwinism, theories of a white race (Europeans) and the other races appeared, which was a code for skin color. However, studies have shown that, other than skin color, there is nothing in the term "black" or "white" person. It is essentially melatonin that resulted from the sapiens that moved from Africa to Europe. Yes, race is a fiction brought about during colonization, slavery, and the industrial revolution to justify systemic inequality. Ingenuity

However, studies have shown that, other than skin color, there is nothing in the term "black" or "white" person. It is essentially melatonin that resulted from the sapiens that moved from Africa to Europe. Yes, race is a fiction brought about during colonization, slavery, and the industrial revolution to justify systemic inequality. With Europeans in direct contact with those in Africa and Asia, a new fictional discourse was required as Yuval Harari said.

Now to Donald Trump. Here's a man who had a reality show and understood a lot about marketing and how to get a target audience. There was a vacancy on the right among those who hated Mexicans (even though California / Texas etc were originally part of Mexico), they were outraged at the idea of ​​an African American president, they were totally xenophobic against Muslims (and most foreigners) and wanted there areas to remain as manufacturing cities (although the tide of technology is not in their favor). He totally interpreted the myth of white America with covert messages like "Make America Great Again", which was a reflection of those who missed the Jim Crow laws of the past, and could be interpreted as "Make America White Again". " If you think this racial argument is overrated, consider how research (Everbody Lies ... by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz) has shown that there was a large group of white Democrats who refused to vote for Obama, and actually did 1 out of every 100 searches on Google. where his name was paired with racist phrases, in the same areas that voted for Trump. Trump knew the value of this group and from the beginning he beat up Obama claiming he was not born in the United States and flirting with the KKK, even claiming that when a protester was run over by a white supremacist, both parties were equally guilty. This statement proves what your agenda is. Make the extreme views espoused by hate groups acceptable in the mainstream. This allowed for more hate crimes to occur not only in the United States, but also in Canada. Is it racist? I think he likes to have a base, and the only base he could get was his extreme right wing racists. Oh, and if 'racist' is seen as a bad term, consider what to call a person who believes that one group based on their skin color is superior to another, and that those whose melatonin is more obvious than others should be discriminated. I think it is not unfair to call him, and many (not all) of his followers racist. Consider the name of a person who believes that one group based on their skin color is superior to another, and that those whose melatonin is more obvious than others should be discriminated against. I think it is not unfair to call him, and many (not all) of his followers racist.

Trump said the federal government was trying to get him to rent out to welfare recipients. Subsequently, he signed an agreement in 1975 agreeing not to discriminate against tenants of color without admitting prior discrimination.
  • 1980s: Kip Brown, a former Trump's Castle employee, accused another of Trump's businesses of discrimination. "When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people to get off the floor," Brown said. "It was the eighties, I was a teenager, but I remember: they put us all behind."
  • 1989: In a controversial case that has been characterized as a modern day lynching, four black teenagers and one Latino teenager, the "Central Park Five," were accused of attacking and raping a runner in New York City. Trump immediately took over the case, running an ad in local newspapers demanding: “RETURN THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING OUR POLICE! "The teens' convictions were later overturned after they spent seven to 13 years in prison, and the city paid the teens $ 41 million in a settlement. But Trump in October 2016 said he still believes they are guilty, despite DNA evidence to the contrary.
  • 1991: A book by John O'Donnell, former president of the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump's criticism of a black accountant: “Black people count my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want to have my money count are short men who wear kippah every day. … I think the guy is lazy. And it's probably not his fault, because laziness is a black trait. It really is, I think so. It's nothing they can control. "Trump later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that" what O'Donnell wrote about me is probably true. "
  • 1992: The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino had to pay a $ 200,000 fine because it moved black dealers and women from the tables to accommodate the biases of high rollers.
  • 1993: In congressional testimony, Trump said that some Native American reservations that operate casinos should not be allowed because "they don't look like Indians to me."
  • 2000: In opposition to a casino proposed by the St. Regis Mohawk tribe, which he saw as a financial threat to his Atlantic City casinos, Trump secretly published a series of advertisements suggesting that the tribe had a "history of criminal activity that is well documented. "
  • 2004: In the second season of The Apprentice, Trump fired Kevin Allen, a black contestant, for having an excessive education. "You are an incredibly talented guy in terms of education and you haven't done anything," Trump said on the show. "At some point you have to say, 'Enough is enough.'
  • 2005: Trump publicly released what was essentially The Apprentice: white people against black people. He said he was “not particularly happy” with the most recent season of his show, so he was considering “an idea that is quite controversial: creating a team of successful African Americans versus a team of successful whites. Whether people like that idea or not, it's a reflection of our vicious world. "
  • 2010: In 2010, there was a major national controversy over the “Ground Zero Mosque,” ​​a proposal to build a Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan, near the site of the 9/11 attacks. Trump opposed the project, calling it "insensitive" and offered to buy one of the project's investors. On The Late Show With David Letterman, Trump argued, referring to Muslims, “Well, someone is blowing us up. Someone is blowing up buildings and someone is doing a lot of bad things. "
  • 2011: Trump played a major role in fueling false rumors that Obama, the country's first black president, was not born in the US He claimed to send investigators to Hawaii to investigate Obama's birth certificate. Obama later released his birth certificate, calling Trump a "carnival town crier." Research has found a strong correlation between birth, as the conspiracy theory is called, and racism. But Trump has reportedly continued to push this conspiracy theory privately.
  • 2011: While Trump suggested that Obama was not born in the US, he also argued that perhaps Obama was not a good enough student to have entered Columbia or Harvard Law School, and demanded that Obama release his records university academics. Trump stated: “I heard he was a terrible student. Terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard? "

For many people, none of these incidents, individually, can be damning: one of these alone might suggest that Trump is simply a bad speaker and perhaps racially insensitive ("politically incorrect," as he put it himself), but not overtly. racist.

But when you put all of these events together, a clear pattern emerges. At the very least, Trump has a history of playing on people's racism to get stronger, and that probably says something about him, too.

And of course, there is everything that happened through and since his presidential campaign.

One thing that sometimes surprises people, when they start to analyze someone as disgusting as Donald Trump or Adolf Hitler, is that sometimes they are not as "bad" in some way as they might initially be supposed.

  • Trump has called the klukluxklan and neo-Nazis "good people." But that in itself is not proof of racism.
  • Trump was one of the people who "lynched" Central Park 5 "in the media. But that in itself is not proof of racism.

  • Trump was one of the people who "lynched" Central Park 5 "in the media. But that in itself is not proof of racism.
  • Trump has been one of the "birthers" who have doubted that Obama was born in the United States. But that in itself is not proof of racism.
  • Trump has spoken of "shitty" countries and has suggested that some of his political opponents return "home" to them, despite being American-born US citizens. But that in itself is not proof of racism.

Racism itself is stupid and ignorant. But racism is not Trump's driving force.

  • He says they are "good people", because in that context, they were "on his side."
  • When he "judges" suspects in the media for assaulting a Central Park runner, he does so because he is a "middle class" runner and a group of lower class criminals. Not so much for any particular racist belief.
  • Obama is a political opponent of Trump. Why not attack below the belt and appeal to your followers? His accusation is more "non-American" and less "non-white."
  • And yes, he is a racist. And this can be so obvious when your political opponent is both female and "black."

The simple truth is that of all his flaws, in many ways all of his other flaws can even "make up for" the racism that he has.

And we don't need to search too hard to see an example of how this works.

  • Many Americans already have some sort of racial bias against the "funny-looking" people in photography.
  • But not so much for Donald Trump.

I'll be honest here, if I were the president of the United States.

  • It would not be "happy" to have to be in this photo. You wouldn't see me smile. I would not feel "comfortable" in that culture.
  • And there would be an element of "racism" in this.
  • Whereas if I were to be in a photograph with ordinary Israeli citizens, especially if they include some non-Jewish citizens, and the current prime minister is not from Likhud, I would smile.
  • Because anything that I found "objectionable" in Israel would not be extended to ordinary people, accepting diversity and promoting tolerance. And I would feel comfortable with them.
  • And that is also racism. Nor should I be prejudiced BY any people, just because I grew up in that "culture."
  • So it's very easy for me to see how, in various ways, Donald Trump can SEEM to be less racist than I am.
  • And I really don't consider myself a racist at all.

But the simple fact is that Donald Trump is just as racist as many people already are, and the reason he may not be much more racist is because his psychosis is so much worse than that.

We can use Stalin as an example of how this works.

  • Hitler hates Jews, Communists, and homosexuals.
  • Stalin hates everyone. And that is why the head of your (previous version of) the KGB may be a Jew.

"Is Donald Trump really a racist?"

Yes.

Unfortunately I have to say more than that or else my answer will crash.

Donald Trump relies on saying and doing so many "shocking" things so quickly that we forget the horrible things he did last month, if not last week. He manages to perform the incredible art of covering up his racism with more racism.

He manages to perform the incredible art of covering up his racism with more racism. You are constantly exploiting the "here and now" mentality of modern discussion to get away with just starting a new show and diverting everyone's attention from the last one.

Oh, and he's also a scammer and a thief. Let me go find a "Is Donald Trump really a scam shit?" ask so I can get into that too.

To quote all the racist incidents of Donald Trump is to have an impeccable point that no one will read. Why not? Because it is too long.

Trump's blatant and unapologetic racism dates back to at least 1973. He was 27 years old when the US Department of Justice sued him for refusing to rent his apartments fairly to blacks, which by the way is how he became famous. The incident that put Trump's name on the map was an act of racism. It is not appropriate?

He was still just as racist in the '80s when he instructed his staff to remove black people from the rooms he and his wife entered and campaigned for the death penalty for 5 non-whites accused of murdering someone. , and they continued to insist on their guilt for many years. later when they were proven innocent and given a wrongful conviction agreement.

In the 90s, he once kicked black people out of a casino at the request of a high-roller white and also admitted to Playboy that he had in fact once said:

laziness is a trait in blacks

Let's go back to the 2000s, when the St. Regis Mohawk tribe proposed a casino, which he perceived as competition, so he told everyone that the entire tribe was “well documented” as thugs and criminals.

And now we are in the 2010s, where his campaign was based on labeling each and every Mexican immigrant (if not of Mexican descent) rapists and bullies, he tried to remove a judge from the Trump University lawsuit. because the guy was too Mexican. for his comfort, he repeatedly pushed the content of white supremacists and continually refused to disown any of them, mocking the Trail of Tears while referring to a native tribe woman perceived as "Pocahontas" ...

They are 50 years of uninterrupted racism.

Oh sorry, bigotry. Technically it is not racism as long as we do not call the discriminated group race.

Imagine Trump making that whole argument frankly. "I do not deny it. I do not deny it. Excuse me, I have not denied anything. I have said a few things. Maybe some bad things. It's part of the business, saying bad things is what you do. I just don't think men are a race per se… Mexico is not a race, it's a shitty country. Probably the shitiest country you've ever seen. I am not racist. Norway I like. It is nice and bright there at this time of year. We should have more, we should have more people, I think yes, we should have more people from Norway come here. Excuse me, I'm not a racist. "

He then leaves the interview and the blacks are allowed to return to the room.

Who the hell is going to sit back and read Trump's Fifty Years? Nobody. Even his followers can't handle so much of the orange supremacist at once.

Trump knows that all the evidence against him is suffocating from his own body weight because no one will click the links, no one will read the long posts with multiple pages of sources and evidence, they will skip and move into the fast pay lane of "that's it. leftist propaganda ". "Not uh racist." "Nuh uh times infinite libtard without labels."

And that's the only reason anyone can seriously ask "Is Donald Trump really a racist?"

Not only is he "really a racist", but he is really, really racist.

The top definition in Urban Dictionary includes the comment: "One side has the word, the other side has the definition."

And yes, that makes everyone racist, but as we've seen, it's just a matter of which side is using the word "racist."

It really came into use widely during the 1960s, of course, and that's when millions of black and white people came together to condemn racism in the South. That was

So today it's obvious, Donald Trump, along with the rest of the world, is a racist. It would be more interesting to see any individual anywhere on Earth who has not joined this club.

I was only about twelve when our parents took us on vacation to Florida to see relatives there. Every time we went then and after, we were invited to stay with my grandfather, my grandmother and my great-grandfather: they all lived in a mansion. (big enough that a water tower was needed just to keep the lawn watered). A new bathroom was built on the second floor just for our family, for a two week visit.

Good: my great-grandfather and my grandfather had a father-son business. That company had between 75% and 80% black employees, and all household personnel were black. We found out right away: these people should be treated like family.

We are a white family. When I was a child, my mother and her older sister went to church on Sundays. They were the only two white people in that church.

There were five totally black churches in the county. Each of them had been built by "Whitney & Son Construction". Yes, we were a racist family, okay.

Very proud of it. People are people, human beings, Homo Sapiens.

Push the "racist" trash. Push it hard.

Here comes the shame: to answer that, we first have to ask what a racist is.

Do not kill me. To stay. There is substance here.

A racist is not someone who hates on the basis of race. He is someone who judges an entire race and bases his interactions on those judgments, ignoring the individuality of the members of that ethnic group. Of course, we know racists support it (I've heard "gross ragheads" and "niggers" come out of some of them), but hate is easy to spot because it's loud and obnoxious. However, that is not real racism.

Here comes the shame: to answer that, we first have to ask what a racist is.

Do not kill me. To stay. There is substance here.

A racist is not someone who hates on the basis of race. He is someone who judges an entire race and bases his interactions on those judgments, ignoring the individuality of the members of that ethnic group. Of course, we know racists support it (I've heard "gross ragheads" and "niggers" come out of some of them), but hate is easy to spot because it's loud and obnoxious. However, that is not real racism. Racism is in the thinking that leads to the relentless urge to spit shit.

So if these people make these generalizations based on race and react to those generalizations, that's the real problem. Racism has many expressions but is invisible until it is expressed, which is part of why it is so dangerous. A person who avoids hiring an employee on the basis of race, for example, will remain a racist even if the hatred has nothing to do with his reasoning. Even if it's something like, "I was raped by a white man, so I don't trust any of them," it can be a tragic traumatic response, but that doesn't mean it's not racist. So now that we've established what racism really is, we can test Trump's actions to see how they match.

Problem: America is under threat from Islamic extremists as a direct result of the use of its nations as pawns during the cold war. Russia is equally guilty.

Logical solution: understand the enhanced threat, subject those arriving from host nations of such organizations, as well as those with close ties to suspected terrorists, to increased scrutiny when entering the country or requesting a security clearance. It's not about the race, it's about knowing where threats are coming from and investigating all people of all races who fit those conditions.

Trump's solution: try to ban all Muslim immigration and travel.

Problem: The strange and fickle immigration law has resulted in large numbers of undocumented workers. This is mistakenly perceived by many as taking jobs away (actually it tends to create new and better ones for citizens) but it means that a large part of the nation is evading taxes while possibly consuming the benefits of the social program. Most of these workers came here legally and simply have expired visas, from many many nations.

Logical solution: comprehensive immigration reform and expansion of the economy by granting clemency and accepting the citizenship application of these workers, documenting them, and increasing tax revenues while better serving their needs.

Trump's solution: target Mexico and Latin America in general and build a wall to keep them out, while rounding up any of that ancestry and investigating their citizenship. Deporting as many as possible (including some legal citizens, that's something that happened) and deploying military units again in migrant caravans packed with refugees.

Problem: Police kill unarmed brown and black citizens and arrest those who are not at alarmingly high rates compared to whites.

Logical Solution: Take #blacklivesmatter, a group dedicated to tackling this specific problem, seriously and start working on “code blue” with drills and torches. Possibly institute gun control so that it is very rare for any criminal to be an armed threat.

Trump Solution: #alllivesmatter, a hashtag dedicated to misinterpreting the purpose of the group it parodies as a black superiority group, publicly complaining that police life matters more, and characterizing the whole problem as an invention by blacks to take away from whites.

Racist in all respects. The evidence is too strong to ignore.

>> Is President Trump a racist?

Maybe? Maybe not? I do not know. I have not seen anything to indicate that he is racist.

I find it funny (not really) that liberals are calling Trump whatever they might call him trying to make him look bad. But these same liberals approved of Obama, who was a big fanatic and racist and all was well with that.

Even the voting process was racist. Don't deny that the people didn't like Obama because of his leadership or diplomacy skills ... rather they voted purely on race. They wanted a black president and that's all they looked at.

And before saying that this is not true, I witnessed it

>> Is President Trump a racist?

I find it funny (not really) that liberals are calling Trump whatever they might call him trying to make him look bad. But these same liberals approved of Obama, who was a big fanatic and racist and all was well with that.

Even the voting process was racist. Don't deny that the people didn't like Obama because of his leadership or diplomacy skills ... rather they voted purely on race. They wanted a black president and that's all they looked at.

And before saying that this is not true, I witnessed it ad nauseam. I heard from so many people who had never voted in their life to vote for a black person to be voted on. That is the most ignorant way to select a leader that I have ever heard of.

You don't get much more bigoted, biased, and racist than that. However, liberals were fine with this kind of behavior.

And if I (or someone) proudly said that I voted for John McCain and Mitt Romney based solely on their being white ... can you imagine the consequences? Can you imagine the clamor and demands for an apology for even thinking of such a thing?

I don't know if Trump is a racist. If it is and you show some proof, that's fair. But so far, I haven't seen any evidence. He speaks his mind and is a bit of a curmudgeon, but that doesn't make him a racist.

I am not defending the man and I do not particularly care about him. But I suspect that most of the claims are being driven by the smug behavior of the liberals because Hillary lost the election.

So I don't pay much attention to them or their claims anymore. Show evidence or stop saying it. 2 years have passed. It is time to get over the loss and move on.

Even if Trump is shown to be really racist, what is the complaint? Racism was perfectly acceptable when Obama was in office. So why is a racist POTUS a problem now that Trump is in office?

Just one of the many hypocritical double standards and inconsistencies of the Rebublican-hating Left.

Racism, in a broad sense, is judging people by the cultural groups with which they associate. Here are some fourteen reasons why Trump could be considered a racist.

  1. He attacked the parents of a deceased Muslim US Army officer, Trump attacked Khizr Khan and his wife, a Muslim US Army officer who died while serving in the Iraq War.
  2. He stated that a judge was biased because "he is Mexican." Trump hinted that Gonzalo Curiel, the federal judge presiding over a class-action lawsuit against Trump University for profit, was unable to hear the case fairly because of his Mexican heritage. “It is Mexican, we are building

Racism, in a broad sense, is judging people by the cultural groups with which they associate. Here are some fourteen reasons why Trump could be considered a racist.

  1. He attacked the parents of a deceased Muslim US Army officer, Trump attacked Khizr Khan and his wife, a Muslim US Army officer who died while serving in the Iraq War.
  2. He stated that a judge was biased because "he is Mexican." Trump hinted that Gonzalo Curiel, the federal judge presiding over a class-action lawsuit against Trump University for profit, was unable to hear the case fairly because of his Mexican heritage. “He is Mexican. We are building a wall between here and Mexico. The answer is that it is giving us very unfair failures, failures that people cannot even believe ”.
  3. He was sued twice for not renting to blacks. When Trump was serving as president of his family's real estate company, Trump Management Corporation, in 1973, the Department of Justice sued the company for alleged racial discrimination against black people seeking to rent apartments in Brooklyn, Queens.
  4. Their casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey were racist. The New Jersey Casino Control Commission fined Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino $ 200,000 in 1992 because managers would eliminate African-American card dealers at the request of a certain high-spending player. A state appeals court upheld the fine. Trump dismissed his black casino employees as "lazy" in vividly intolerant terms, according to a 1991 book by John O'Donnell, former president of the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.
  5. He failed to hire minority workers for a riverine casino on Lake Michigan. Twenty African Americans in Indiana sued Trump in 1990 for failing to fulfill a promise to hire mostly minority workers for a riverine casino on Lake Michigan.
  6. He refused to condemn the white supremacists who campaign for him. Three times on February 28, Trump sidestepped opportunities to resign white nationalist and former KKK leader David Duke, who told his radio audience last week that voting for any candidate other than Trump is "really a betrayal of your heritage. ". When asked by CNN's Jake Tapper if he would condemn Duke and say he did not want a vote from him or any other white supremacist, Trump claimed that he knew nothing about white supremacists or about Duke himself. When Tapper pressed him twice more, Trump said he could not convict a group that he had not yet investigated. By February 29, Trump was saying that he did, in fact, reject Duke, and that the only reason he did not do so on CNN was because of a "lousy headphone."
  7. He questioned whether President Obama was born in the United States. Before calling Mexican immigrants "criminals" and "rapists," Trump was a leading proponent of "birtherism," the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and therefore he is an illegitimate president.
  8. Treat racial groups like monoliths. Trump often responds to accusations of racism by protesting that he really loves the group in question. "I will withdraw the jobs from China, I will withdraw the jobs from Japan," Trump said during his visit to the US-Mexico border in July. "Hispanics will get those jobs and they will love Trump." How did Trump respond to people who called him for funding an investigation into whether Obama was born in the United States? "I have a great relationship with blacks," Trump said in April 2011. "I've always had a great relationship with blacks."
  9. He wrecked the Native Americans. In 1993, when Trump wanted to open a casino in Bridgeport, Connecticut that would compete with one owned by a local Native American tribe, he told the House of Representatives subcommittee on Native American Affairs that “they don't look like Indian to me ... . They don't look like Indians to Indians. "
  10. He encouraged mob justice which resulted in the unjust imprisonment of the Central Park Five. In 1989, Trump ran full-page advertisements in four New York City area newspapers calling for the return of the death penalty in New York and the expansion of police authority in response to the infamous case of a woman who was beaten and raped while jogging in Central Park in Manhattan. "They should be forced to suffer, and when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes," Trump wrote, referring to the Central Park attackers and other violent criminals. "I want to hate these killers and I always will." The men's convictions were overturned in 2002, after they had already spent years in prison, when DNA evidence showed they did not commit the crime.
  11. He condoned the beating of a Black Lives Matter protester. At a campaign rally in Alabama, Trump supporters physically attacked an African-American protester after the man began yelling "Black lives matter." Video of the incident shows the assailants kicking the man after he had already fallen to the ground. The next day, Trump hinted that the attackers were justified. "Perhaps the protester should have been mistreated," he mused. "It was absolutely disgusting what he was doing."
  12. He called the supporters who beat up a homeless Latino man "passionate." Trump's racial incitement has already inspired hate crimes. Two brothers arrested in Boston last summer for beating a homeless Latino man cited Trump's anti-immigrant message in explaining why they did so. "Donald Trump was right: all these illegals must be deported," one of the men told police officers. Trump suggested the men had good intentions and had simply gotten carried away. "I will say that the people who follow me are very passionate," Trump said. “They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate. "
  13. He stereotyped Jews and shared an anti-Semitic meme created by white supremacists. When Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition, he tried to connect with the crowd by invoking the stereotype of Jews as talented and canny entrepreneurs. "I'm a negotiator, just like you," Trump told the crowd, promoting his book The Art of the Deal. "Is there anyone who does not renegotiate agreements in this room?" Trump said. "Maybe more than any other room I've ever talked to." He hinted that he had little chance of winning the support of the Jewish Republican group, because his loyalty could not be bought with campaign donations. "You are not going to support me because I do not want your money," he said. “You want political memes.
  14. He treats African American followers as samples to dispel the idea that he is racist. At a campaign appearance in California in June, Trump bragged about having a black supporter in the crowd, saying, "Look at my African American here." "Look at him," Trump continued. "You're the greatest?". Trump went on to imply that the media is hiding its appeal among African Americans by not covering the crowd with more attention. "We have tremendous African American support," he said.


    That is why people think he is racist.


    EDIT: I decided to delete some comments that in my opinion got a little quirky, drifted too far off topic, or got a little strong on language. Remember to be polite and reasonable.
    Also: if you comment, please note that the question I answered is not the one you have merged with (there is a subtle difference) and note the definition I give you. It's okay to disagree, but you don't need to tell me that you don't agree. I've said that enough. Thanks.

    EDIT2:
    Original answer: Why do people think Trump is racist?

If you think Trump is a racist and you think he has facts to back it up, I'll just point out how unreliable those "facts" are.

The media repeatedly claimed that Trump said there were "great people" among neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, where the riots took place.

Trump said there were "good people" on "both sides." The problem is, neo-Nazis and white supremacists weren't on either side he was referring to.

We KNOW this because at the same time that he made that statement about "good people", he specifically said that he was NOT talking about neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

If you think Trump is a racist and you think he has facts to back it up, I'll just point out how unreliable those "facts" are.

The media repeatedly claimed that Trump said there were "great people" among neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, where the riots took place.

Trump said there were "good people" on "both sides." The problem is, neo-Nazis and white supremacists weren't on either side he was referring to.

SABEMOS esto porque al mismo tiempo que hizo esa declaración sobre “gente buena”, dijo específicamente que NO estaba hablando de neonazis y supremacistas blancos. De hecho, dijo que esas personas deberían ser "condenadas totalmente".

So, why is it that the media kept saying the opposite? Could they have not actually heard what he said and were misled by others misrepresenting Trump’s statement? Nope. Because Trump was making these statements directly to the press, in response to their questions.

Which should tell you a few things, including that the media is quite willing to flat out lie about something that is easily proven to be false and they are willing to continue that lie.

If you look hard enough, you can not only fine full transcripts of his statement but, just in case you think the transcripts are inaccurate, you can find the full video of his comments.

Not long ago, I did a search for the “fine people” statement by Trump. Then I did the same search, but added his comment “condemned totally” which was the key context. Well, there were 10 times as many what left out the “condemned totally” part! And I can assure you that many of those which may have included that part did not present it in a truthful way. That is, they still claimed he defended those extremist groups, but someplace, buried in the article, they happened to bury that statement as well.

  1. He was sued by the justice department (twice) for housing discrimination against blacks
    1. In 1973, while serving as president of Trump Management Corporation, Trump was charged with allegedly discriminating against black people who tried to rent apartments in his buildings in Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. The Justice Department sued the company for lying to potential black tenants about the availability of apartments and for giving them different lease terms and conditions than white tenants. And while Trump dismissed the allegations, countering the Justice Department for defamation

  1. He was sued by the Justice Department (twice) for housing discrimination against blacks.
    1. In 1973, while serving as president of the Trump Management Corporation, Trump was accused of allegedly discriminating against black people who were trying to rent apartments in his buildings in Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. The Justice Department sued the company for lying to black prospective renters about the availability of apartments, and giving them different lease terms and conditions than white tenants. And while Trump dismissed the accusations, countersuing the Justice Department for defamation (to the tune of $100 million), his company was sued again in 1978 for violating conditions in a settlement from the first case — by continuing to discriminate against black people.
  2. He placed a racially-charged full page newspaper ad calling for the return of the death penalty in New York.
    1. The way the media covered the story of the Central Park Five(teen boys wrongly accused and imprisoned for the rape of a Central Park jogger) was bad enough. But Trump taking out an ad in several New York City newspapers in 1989 during the height of the trial demanding that the death penalty be reinstated in New York was just the awful cherry on top. “I recently watched a newscast trying to explain ‘the anger in these young men,’” Trumpwrote. “I no longer want to understand their anger. I want them to understand our anger. I want them to be afraid.” Yikes. The over-the-top ad, a thinly veiled reference to the Central Park Five and other young black boys in the city, further demonstrates Trump’s subtle but profound lack of regard for the lives of underprivileged black people.
  3. He has said that laziness is a trait in blacks
    1. According to a book written by former Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino president John R. O’Donnell, the real estate mogul once said in 1991 that “Laziness is a trait in blacks.” He was allegedly referring to a black accountant working for Trump Plaza, and added, ““Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.” The kicker is that Trump, in a 1999 Playboy magazine interview, did not even deny saying those things. He admitted O’Donnell’s allegations were “probably true,” but insisted it didn’t matter because he was obviously a disgruntled employee.
  4. He has generalized negatively about other racial groups based only on race (or religion), such as saying that Mexicans are rapists, and there is a need to ban all Muslims.
  5. Some argue that he hires minorities and seems to work well with them, but the fact that for years he hired a virulently racist butler…sorta makes you wonder just how close he lets them get to him.
    1. In fact, discrimination against black people has been a pattern in his career Workers at Trump’s casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey, have accused him of racism over the years. The New Jersey Casino Control Commission fined the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino $200,000 in 1992 because managers would remove African-American card dealers at the request of a certain big-spending gambler. A state appeals court upheld the fine. The first-person account of at least one black Trump casino employee in Atlantic City suggests the racist practices were consistent with Trump’s personal behavior toward black workers.

“When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, told the New Yorker for a September article. “It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”

    1. I feel it is time for the SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION !!!!! The only way we will change this crooked government is to douche it !!!!! This might be the time with this kenyan fraud in power !!!!! ...With the last breath I draw I will help rid this America of the scum infested in its government--and if that means dragging that ball less dick head from the white mosque and hanging his scrawny ass from the portico--count me in !!!!!
  1. He is not afraid to generalize regarding entire religions and/or races in the negative and regardless of if he actually believes it or not (arguably worse) the effect remains the same. And as someone defined racism by the effect on the target, not necessarily by the intentions. (e.g. a teacher thinks they are helping their black students by not pushing them as hard, giving them easier assignments and not guiding them towards higher education, however her actions result in the black students in her class not doing as well, while her intentions are good, her actions end up having a racist effect on her students.)

Finally I am not sure how else to describe someone who says that “That judge can’t do his job properly because he is from Mexico and I am going to build a wall”
