Such vile rhetoric doesn't deserve a response except I'll point out that the day to day city operations in Baltimore is run by a mayor and city counsel, not a congressperson.  Just sayin'

Baltimore's stimulus money was spent:

Of course you have no response to the stealing that Democrats have done the people of these large cities.  Baltimore, Detroit, D.C., Chicago.  The list goes on an on and self serving people like the CBC could care less about their citizens and only about lining their own pockets.  And yes it is Cummings problems as it is district that he represents that is the rat infested area of Baltimore and many Democrats themselves have complained about.

Not taking the bait. 

Trumpaganda is prevalent in an attempt to confuse and cloud the public understanding of the nature of the verbal attacks from the president. No matter how the spin cycle tries to excuse and explain away the long observed white supremacy leanings of DJT, the tell tell signs of racism are plain to see. 

Just like the dishonesty.

Just like the lack of ethics or morals.

Just like the incompetence.

Racism is the cry of those who cannot accept the truth and are devoid of any skills to actually address an actual fact.  Racism is people like Chris Matthews comparing rats to Jews. That is racism.

Sure.

 Racists and sycophants are busily redefining and excusing obvious racism from a president long known as a white supremacy apologist. I guess some people believed Trump when he claimed to be the least racist person in the world. It's amazing what people are willing to equivocate. 

Trump is really a revealing representation of conservative values.

Do you believe a person's ethnicity determines how well he or she will make important decisions on the job?

Or applying different interpretations of the same act might have more to do with Republican vs Democrat.  It’s not to unusual for politicians to be hypercritical, is it?

Last week Trump was heavily criticizing white men.  

No, I don't think racist comments are just a hypercritical response to the substance of a disagreement.  Firstly, the argument that she wouldn't be able to appreciate American without living in Somalia makes no sense, she's a Somalian refugee.  The "doesn't appreciate America" comments refer to the idea that her ethnicity doesn't give her the same rights to disagree with those in power, which is racist.  

If these comments are part of a rational argument and not racism, then what is that rational argument?

It's the fat industrial cats that Republicans saw fit to give trillion dollar tax cuts that are lining their pockets on the misery of others and the wall Republicans that voted for it lined their pockets with donations.  

I get confused when republicans lower taxes, cut spending, want people to take responsibility for themselves, and then turn around and blame Democrats for their misery.  

I will admit, as stated in the article I posted, that the Obama stimulus package didn't solve all their problems.

Racism is a lot more subtle than that.  It's almost daily indignities that mostly the African American community have to endure.  It doesn't have to be so blatant.

Racist microaggressions occur damn near daily on every level no matter socioeconomic status. It's always racists who try to redefine racism and are loudly wrong, legit ignorant to racism and how it works, or purposely dismissive,

This. And they actually think none of us can recognize that.

Often, racists have convinced themselves that THEY are not racist, because they aren't burning crosses on anybody's lawn.

Take for instance, the gun store owner, in NC, I told you all about.

He doesn't think his billboard is racist or bigoted.

From today's WaPo:

'How The Hell Is This Not Inciting Violence?' Gun store Erects Billboard With Minority Lawmakers' Faces

Yep. These people live in deep denial.

I have to say after attending many an inservice and workshop that I know that I have picked up inherent racism and continue to work against it. I grew up in a very white area, not in small part because of race riots here in the previous century. As I grew up, people with dark skin were regularly denigrated as being less intelligent or lazy or likely to break the law. I know that all of this was a lie, but when it is programmed in as a child, it takes conscious effort to overcome it. And when I sense that someone has treated me based on my skin color or gender, instead of striking out, I try to stop and think of where is that coming from.

‘How the hell is this not inciting violence?’ Gun store erects billboard with minority lawmakers’ faces

The sign warns of the “4 Horsemen” — typically a reference to biblical imagery symbolizing the end of the earth: conquest, war, famine and death.

But the North Carolina billboard that went up over the weekend does not depict horsemen. It shows photos of the freshman congresswomen also known as “the Squad”: Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. The billboard calls the progressive Democratic members of Congress “idiots” and is signed by “the Deplorables.”

Cherokee Guns, a Murphy, N.C., gun shop about a mile away from the sign, took responsibility for the billboard. An image shared to the shop’s Facebook page Sunday went viral this week and drew a sharp rebuke from the women pictured, as well as anti-gun-violence advocates. The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence on Monday called the billboard “violent rhetoric.”...
