Trump is Racist? I Don't Think So

You are reading page 4 of Trump is Racist? I Don't Think So. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Every response here talks about what Trump "says", but no one wants to comment on what he DOES, and I am referring to the undeniable quantity of pro-civil rights and pro-black legislation that he has passed. Why would a racist do that? Do his comments weigh heavier than his actions? Because so far no one has provided a single action (or a comment for that matter) that insinuates a racist tone whatsoever. I for one wish he would keep his mouth shut permanently because he sounds like an ass most of the time, but the racist/fascist claims I just do not get at all.

Well, my responses are getting filtered out, I'm missing three response posts, so I don't know what else to say. They were all on topic responses, except one comment about the Miles Davis video posted, which was music related. AllNurses has made their agenda crystal clear to me. Any opposing opinions are not welcome by the community nor the mods, no matter how well backed they are. I ask tough questions, but I never claim to have all of the answers; I just present information and straight forward inquiry because that how real knowledge and objective opinions are formed. Go ahead and agree with each other about everything, apparently you don't like your opinions to be challenged here. Like I said, that is incredibly weak and pathetically sad.

I actually like my opinions to be challenged. So far though, I am not persuaded by your evidence that DJT is not a racist. Him signing proclamations that his staff wrote and he likely never read are fluff.

If he is racist why did he sign them? Wouldn't that go against his fervent racist agenda?

When you call someone a racist you are the one with the burden of proof to show he is a racist. All I ever see as "proof" are the attempts of a liberal left leaning media to twist everything around as to call him out as a racist. Does he say stupid things, yes, but that doesn't make him a racist. People , whoever you are, have no right to call someone a racist unless you are sure. And, also just look at everything else they call him, everything they can possibly think of because that is all the dems and their media have, no policy, nothing for the American people except to hate and resist Trump, sad and pathetic.

"Mexican" is not a racist term, it refers to people from Mexico. Just like, Americans refers to people from America, not offensive except to those trying to "find" something to be offended by!

And also, I know people from Mexico who do in fact call themselves Mexican.

Here is the full statement from Trump, sounds like some missed it! It may have been a little late in coming (clearing the air) from him but I think it clears it up!

"I'm in Washington today to meet with my economic team about trade policy and major tax cuts and reform. We are renegotiating trade deals and making them good for the American worker, and it's about time. The economy is now strong. The stock market continues to hit record highs, unemployment is at a 16-year low, and businesses are more optimistic than ever before. Companies are moving back to the United States and bringing many thousands of jobs with them. We have already created over one million jobs since I took office.

We will be discussing economic issues in greater detail later this afternoon, but based on the events that took place over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, I would like to provide the nation with an update on the ongoing federal response to the horrific attack and violence that was witnessed by everyone. I just met with FBI director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Department of Justice has opened a civil-rights investigation into the deadly car attack that killed one innocent American and wounded 20 others. To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend's racist violence, you will be held accountable. Justice will be delivered.

As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of bigotry, hatred, and violence. It has no place in America. And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws; we all salute the same great flag; and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must discover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. 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 everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our creator, we are equal under the law, and we are equal under our constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.

Two days ago, a young American woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed. Her death fills us with grief and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love. We also mourn the two Virginia state troopers who died in service to their community, their commonwealth, and their country. Troopers H. Jay Cullen and Berke Bates exemplify the very best of America, and our hearts go out to their families, their friends, and every member of American law enforcement. These three fallen Americans embody the goodness and decency of our nation. In times such as these, America has always shown its true character, responding to hate with love, division with unity, and violence with an unwavering resolve for justice. As a candidate, I promised to restore law and order to our country, and our federal law-enforcement agencies are following through on that pledge. We will spare no resource in fighting so that every American child can grow up free from violence and fear. We will defend and protect the sacred rights of all Americans, and we will work together so that every citizen in this blessed land is free to follow their dreams in their hearts and to express the love and joy in their souls.

Thank you. God bless you, and God bless America."

Daisy, you've jumped the shark. Hit a nerve, did we?

Perhaps you can provide a non-racist explanation for Trump's birtherism? His willful disregard and mischaracterization of The NFL players' protest?

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

.......Yes I agree, perhaps better stated at there are 2 sides to every story.

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?

.............Motivation? Political mudslinging just like they all do, and no, I don't agree with any of it, but I didn't take it as racist.

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.

.............My point was that I do not believe that our nation, as a whole, is racist, therefore if we are not rasict then a racist President would not have been elected.

I love you guys :wavey:

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 :)

Hope you got some sleep, we all need to take care of ourselves!!

Birtherism.....was Political not racial

Football....calling out rich, entitled football players for being disrespectful, not racial

Again, when one calls out someone as a racist, the burden of proof is on you!

How would you like it if someone called you a racist and you were not!

I posted links to several accounts of his long history of racist statements and actions. Did you read them?

I can't take seriously anyone who claims that the "birther" movement was not about Obama's race. And the "disrespect" of the football players protesting police mistreatment of African-American citizens is in the eye of the beholder. Many of us don't find it "disrespectful." Again, it's hard to take seriously anyone who claims that the outrage of Trump (and others) about the protests isn't racially motivated.

Your posts were, as I stated, only media attempts to twist the truth to further their agenda, not proof.

I cant take anyone seriously who see's everything as racist just because you don't like this President. And many people did fine the "protest" disrespectful and/or thought they should be doing it on their own time (not work time) and/or should "put their money where there mouth is" and do something constructive to help. Calling this out is not racist.
