You are reading page 2 of Trump is Racist? I Don't Think So. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I will believe Trump is not racist when he stops referring to Mexicans as rapists, black athletes as SOBs, and non-Saudi Muslims as terrorists. And when he declares that White Nationalists are not very fine people.

He was not being racist, he was referring to their actions, not the color of their skin.

He said a United States citizen Judge, born in the U.S.A. could not do his job because he was "Mexican".

That is either racist pr prejudice against him because of his ethnic heritage.

I think White nationalists can change, but while they remain bigoted they are NOT "fine people". In my opinion. Sre theyb"fine people" in your opinion>

Do you approve of the President of the United States setting an example by saying such things> Do you approve of his name calling and cursing fellow Americans?

Oh, goodie ... it's the Parade of the Memes!

My prediction for the future line-up:

Political correctness

Reverse racism

The intolerance of liberals

ETA: I found the Junior Mints, so keep 'em coming!

As usual there are two sides to every coin, just because you don't agree with everything he says/does (and neither do I), that doesn't mean he is a racist. Do you really think that the same non-racist half of America that voted for Obama would have voted for Trump if he was racist, get real!

Sometimes there aren't two sides to a coin. Sometimes the truth or fact is simply black or white.

I'm curious Daisy. This is the second time that I've seen you say that you don't agree with everything Trump says or does. Would you care to list some of the things he says or does that you don't agree with? As I've kind of relegated you to the Trump support camp, I'm curious to know what you make of Trump's questioning of President Obama's birth certificate. What do you make of it? What motivated him to put that theory out there for years and years?

And the half of America who voted for President Obama did not vote for Trump. Not by a long shot. Just enough people to give him a rather narrow win. If you total the votes in the three states that gave him the electoral college win, it's still what.... less than a hundred thousand votes... That's a pretty narrow margin. Hardly "half of" America.

He was not being racist, he was referring to their actions, not the color of their skin.

Do you actually believe that? How had the judge that Herring referenced ACTED to deserve Trump's comment?

You and me both! :roflmao:

Me, too ... nothing like taking a torch to a straw man to liven up a discussion! I hate popcorn, but I think I have some Junior Mints around here somewhere ...

Carry on!

I love you guys :wavey:

I'm sorry Mr_Edwino, I realize that it's not polite to laugh at something someone says, but really... Claiming that you've never heard of the correlation between Birtherism and race before, just doesn't ring true. It's like you expect us to not even have a sufficient IQ to successfully tie our shoelaces... It would be one thing if you claimed that in your opinion birtherism does not equal racism, but to say that the entire concept is novel to you just isn't believable. It just isn't.

Your post has resulted in my partner thinking he's cohabiting with a crazy woman :roflmao:He's an airline pilot, came home from a long-haul tonight and jet-lagged as all ****. He just came into our livingroom, looking at me incredulously, asking why I'm snickering like a semi-deranged person at my laptop :lol2: It's half past three over here in Viking land, and it's time I caught some zzzzz's :)

And, Sometimes there are 2 sides to the coin, sometimes one just needs to look.

Trump right about judicial bias and prejudice

And just to answer you re: things I don't like about Trump, I think he is rude and crude sometimes (personally), I don't agree with all his policys, but that is not the same thing as being racist.

And as far as the SOB comment he made, it was made to football players of every color/race who were refusing to support the National Anthem. I could care less about football anyway but I also find it offensive that they are allowed to do this "on the clock" Go ahead and protest, but if they were serious they have the money and resources to make changes and very few did. I guess its just easier to take a knee than do any real work. Not liking that is not racist, but again I also don't like his (Trump) name calling.

As I have stated I am an Independent but from where I stand it looks like its the Dems who refuse to look at or acknowledge the other side of the coin in any situation r/t Trump!

What about the Central Park Five. 14 and 15 year old, who after more than 24 hours of intense interrogation, were intimidated by seasoned detectives into falsely convicting each other?

Confessions | Central Park Five | PBS

Even after another man confessed and the DNA in the semen was that man's , NOT one of those young men, Donald Trump wanted them put to death! WHY?

Whether race influenced his rediculous opinion or not it was illogical and cruel. NOT the kind of logic I wan for our president.

Two sides to every coin, indeed.

For instance, the definition of the football players' demonstration as deliberate disrespect for the flag came directly from Trump. What the players themselves said was that they are kneeling in remembrance of and respect for the (mostly) Black (mostly) men injured and killed by gratuitous police violence.

I get why Trump would feel threatened by that. He's the one who called for the execution of The Central Park Five, even after they were proven innocent. It seems that dead Black men are ok with him, even when they didn't do anything wrong.

Sorry, Daisy - that one's a no-go. What kind of mind sees Black men paying respect to other Black men and immediately assumes an attack on the flag? Could it be that he doesn't really believe that Black men could possibly be real Americans? That any respect for them is disrespect for the flag and the country it represents? That criticizing the police is that same as criticizing the flag? Is that what the flag stands for - the abuse of power? In my opinion, this particular example is practically a textbook definition of racism.

Try again.

So, we have the intolerance of liberals and the non-existence of racism (I missed that one in my prediction. Darn!). Let's see how many memes we can rack up before the thread gets shut down.

"He can't do his job because he's a Mexican."

Hows is that not a racist or anti-Mexican statement?

He said a United States citizen Judge, born in the U.S.A. could not do his job because he was "Mexican".

That is either racist pr prejudice against him because of his ethnic heritage.

I think White nationalists can change, but while they remain bigoted they are NOT "fine people". In my opinion. Sre theyb"fine people" in your opinion>

"Mexican" by no definition or affiliation is a term used to identify race it is to identify nationality. There are white, black, mestizo, and asian Mexicans. If you disagree, tell Canelo Alvarez to his face that he is not white; you will instantly regret that comment I'm sure.

"According to the 2010 US Census, 52.8% of Mexican Americans identified as being White.[38]" In the country of Mexico, the population from European decent is as high as 62.6% (Nuevo Leon) in some states.

Mexicans of European descent - Wikipedia

How could Trump be accused of being racist against Mexico/ Mexican-Americans (The judge in the previous post by herring was Mexcan-American) if 52.8 and 62.6% respectively of those populations identify as white? If you accused him of a nationalistic bias, I would agree. Racist absolutely not.

The birther movement was not spearheaded by Trump, it was started by Andy Martin, a Democrat, and he accused Obama early on in his career during the Senatorial election. There was no racial connotation at all.

"Conspiracy theories about Obama's religion appeared at least as early as his 2004 U.S. Senate campaign in a press release by Illinois political candidate Andy Martin,[29] and, according to a Los Angeles Times editorial, as Internet rumors.[30] These rumors about his religion expanded into his values, cultural, and national loyalty, and, by 2008, into conspiracy theories about his citizenship."

And yet, you included DJT's proclamation about National Hispanic Heritage Month in your original post as proof that he is not racist. Whatever :facepalm:

Does anybody have any Sour Patch Kids to share?
