You are reading page 7 of Trump is Racist? I Don't Think So. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

It's called a little research. Look it up. Kaepernick was the first player to kneel. Trump becomes President and whole teams start kneeling. I will go ahead and add, since I can, you liberals seems to often not know facts. You just rant about things which you are uneducated about and can't hold a debate outside of throwing your feelings into it. Trump is racist to yall ok. Whatever. Well why don't you listen to this. Obama saying that immigrants should learn English. But Obama can say it cuz he's a nice guy. Trump says something similar and "protestors" start setting cars on fire.

Watch this please and try to have an open mind.

Is that all you got? You asserted a lot more than just when K started kneeling and besides Obama. You claimed that Black athletes were unconcerned and uninvolved in their home communities until Trump was elected. You still haven't described how you know anything at all about what's going on in non-white communities, let alone how professional athletes are or are not involved.

My Dad was a jazz trumpet player. He also earned a BA masters in music in the four years allotted by the GI Bill.

He and his friend trumpeter, Roy Eldridge, both said that Miles was a musical genius, and unhappy man who was often rude. My Daddy could sound just like him. Of course Miles was the creator and my Dad copied it.

My Dad plays a solo at 1:20. I was two when this was recorded:

Here he was sitting next to Roy with Gene Krupa:

Of course I posted Miles for the title "So What!"

Hi Daisy - I found that video yesterday and joined his FB page and the #WalkAway FB page as well. I've been watching videos and statements from folks who left the Democrat Party and why. It is pretty amazing and heartwarming to see people from all walks of life getting along and agreeing for the most part . . . without resorting to eating Junior Mints together and laughing their heads off.

No true offense to y'all . . . I've known you here for years. But I stopped posting on the political threads and took a break from AN altogether because there simply isn't a lot of respect or room for disagreements here. And that's the crux of what is spearheading #WalkAway

I wish that before stating the president had never acted racist they would use a search engine and look up when he and his father were accused of violating the Fair Housing Act in 1973 discriminating against Black people, and rather than win in court settled a couple years later:

Donald Trump's Housing Discrimination Case Still Chases Him Decades Later : NPR

When a black woman asked to rent an apartment in a Brooklyn complex managed by Donald Trump's real estate company, she said she was told that nothing was available. A short time later, a white woman who made the same request was invited to choose between two available apartments.

Inside the government's racial bias case against Donald Trump's company, and how he fought it - The Washington Post

Then three years later were again cited with not obeying the court order:

The Federal Government charged yesterday that Trump Management, which owns 15,000 apartment units in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, was continuing to discriminate against blacks although it had signed a court stipulation not to do so.

Trump Charged With Rental Bias - The New York Times

Then in 1983, when he was 37 years old Donald Trump again was cited for refusing to rent to Black people:

...the supply of housing available to blacks is artificially restricted and hightens the impact of a ceiling racial quota on black housing choice.''...

FOR STARRETT CITY, AN INTEGRATION TEST - The New York Times

Then in 1992 he paid a $200.00 fine for firing a casino dealer because a criminal customer complained about there being a black man dealing cards.

Trump Plaza loses appeal of discrimination penalty - UPI Archives

In 1996 Donald Trump was sued by more than 20 African-American residents of Indiana who say he reneged on promises to hire 70% of his work force from the minority community for his riverboat casino on Lake Michigan.

He later selled.

TRUMP HIT WITH RACE SUIT

BLACKS: DON DEALT US OUT OF CASINO JOBS - NY Daily News

In 2000 Trump was once so involved in trying to block an Indian casino that he secretly approved attack ads stating it was paid for by 12,000 "pro-family" donors, warned of the evils an Indian casino would bring: "increased crime, broken families, bankruptcies and, in the case of the Mohawks, violence."

ALL the money was from Donald Trump.

The ads included pictures of syringes and cocaine and asked "Are these the new neighbors we want?"

Well, more useless article that do not prove racism. I agree that some of the things he did have been sketchy but it does not prove racism, greed maybe, arrogance maybe, but not racism. Just proves that (some) people who hate Trump will see what they want to see.

I remain impressed that the white supremacist can call Mexicans rapists, Muslims terrorists and refer to NFL players as SOBs and the sycophants will write and paste paragraph after tortuous paragraph to convince the world that we can no longer judge folks like Trump on their words or policy.

Instead we must rely on the propaganda.

Equally impressive is how those same people are blind to the reality that they won't even allow the black NFL players to state the nature of their own protest. Nope, in Trump's America the white people get to tell the black man what he thinks and wants.

There are in fact Mexicans/Hispanics that do cross the border who are rapists, there are in fact Islamic terrorists who cross the border, saying this is a fact is NOT racist! And, nobody is stopping the football players from protesting, Hmmmm, wonder why we don't see them, could it be they don't want to waste their own time protesting!!

"Trump" had zero to do with the NFL and their decision to make players stand or stay in the locker room. The NFL MADE THAT RULE because they lost money lol. It's a business to them. They can make rules just like your place of work requires you to follow its rules. Their decision was based on furious Americans that said we're not watching your s***. WE THE PEOPLE is what made em do it!!

Since Trump had a great deal to say about it, and Trump never hesitated to share his thoughts during rallies, in Tweet, and in his remarks to the press, it is entirely possible that most powerful man in the country influenced the NFLs decisions - at minimum by encouraging animus against the players and those who would accept their protest.

Given that a significant number of Americans were furious precisely because they believed Trump's lie that the protest was about disrespecting the symbols of our republic rather than about the police abuse of force when interacting with young men of color, I would suggest that it is easy to deduce that Trump had more than zero influence.

The NFL is suffering from the public knowledge that they have tried to silence the reporting of the chronic brain injuries that the players have been expected to endure. The public is growing weary of supporting the NFLs expensive needs. The sport is losing fans, not because of the player protest, but because it has ignored the needs of the players in this matter.

Yes, laughing my head off. Do you know just how long i've been reading the same old ratiocinations for racism? Nigh onto half a century, at least. The predictability of it is what's so funny.

You must have missed the snark with which the OP responded to an attempt to discuss family separation at the border. Posters here have not dished out anything worse than what we have endured from those who oppose our views.

As long as "serious discussion" is defined as never questioning the evidence and reasoning being presented, then entertainment is the best that can be expected. Have you noticed that neither the OP nor Daisy has actually presented any response to the questions posed to them?

Instead we have the perennial victim card and right-wingers flouncing off in a huff over the intolerant liberals. But we're the snowflakes, right?

What you are describing is the deliberate decision to embrace ignorance.

Walk away all you like, you are still there, and that has consequences.

They started kneeling as a protest against Trump period and you won't change my mind on that part. Even Huffpost the liberal capital of the media agrees. They headed their article NFL Players Protest Trump And Racism In Games Across The Country | HuffPost. NFL players kneeled in defiance to Trump. They didn't kneel until Pres Trump was in office and no, they didn't care until he was in office. Why aren't they kneeling about all the black on black shootings in Chicago? Because it doesn't fit their narrative nor yours. They don't give one iota about the blacks. If you can find info where they protested prior to his election please provide me with that information. I'm open minded and/yet informed.

Hi heron.

I walked away in the 1980's.

I'm not going to go toe-to-toe over the issues on this thread. I'll never change anyone's mind nor do I want to do so.

I'm simply thanking Daisy for putting up that link as over the last 24 hours, I've felt some camaraderie from the group started by Brandon Straka.

So far, I've found just about every group I can think of there sharing their frustrations with how far left the Democrat Party has gone. These are all legit concerns no matter whether you agree with them or not. So far, we all don't walk lock-step with each other but we do share similar frustrations. It is kind of refreshing really. Here is the group statement:

The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement. It is a video campaign movement, dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the Democratic Party has become. Some left long ago. Many of us have recently been "red-pilled". Some here have wanted to leave for some time, but have feared the consequences they might suffer from friends or family if they walk away. This group is here to encourage and support those on the left to walk away from the divisive tenets by allowing people to share their stories, or watch the video testimonies and read the posts of others who have walked away. But this campaign also serves another very important purpose. For far too long, the left has controlled the narrative in this country in news and media while the "silent majority" on the right have done what they always do- remained silent. The left has been allowed for so long to reinforce the narrative that everybody on the right is a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, etc. But the left has become so extreme, it's now time to fight back. I want people on the right to use their voices and tell the world the truth about who they are. Please make a video telling everyone what it means to be a conservative in America. What your values really are. Tell minorities on the left who have been told their whole lives that they are not welcome on the right because of the bigotry and hatred of the people on the right that they are welcome. That there is a seat at the table on the right for everybody. This is a movement of patriots of all walks of life- men, women, black, brown, white, straight, LGBTQ, religious, non-believers, who share something very important in common... WE ARE AMERICAN and we will not surrender our country! Please enjoy the video testimonials and posts, and please leave one of your own!

Today I’m kicking off the #WalkAway... - The Unsilent Minority

I don't hate him. I want him to have a good rest of his life.

I do NOT want to live in a country where the president separates babies and children from their mothers and fathers, where the president praises cruel murderous dictators, who insults American heroes like Senator McCain, insults Gold Star families, insulted each and every other Republican candidate for president with lies and name calling, where he creates a crisis daily, makes promises that cannot be kept, insults those he should negotiate with, who says some Nazis and White supremacists are "very good people" along with those credibly accused of raping under age teens.

I want him to no longer be our president so we can live in a country where the president behaves with common courtesy.

I can't help praying for us all. He verbalizes hate and advocates violence as a routine.

I pray we stop him before the United States is no longer a free country.
