    Who are they, for the most part?
    Democrats - of all races.
    There might be Republican racists but there are no conservative racists. Liberals might make the same argument - that there are Democrat racists but not liberal racists.

    In the 2020 election cycle I think the Dems may realize that the "racist" label is not very practical. After all, a majority of Blacks will probably vote for them anyway. I think the new mantra will be GUN CONTROL, as in "Trump does not care about the mass shootings" (nor do other Republicans). "Vote for our CHILDREN!". Depending on who the Dems run, class-envy will be right up there. "Sock it to the RICH!" (Trump, of course, being rich, as well as anyone making over $80K per year).

    If Trumps a racist based on what he has said and done since being president, then so am I.
    and that would be news to all my black and Mexican friends.
    I only discriminate against stupidity so that includes most liberals

    When this all started with President Trump, it was based on his tweet telling the four freshmen congresswomen to go back and fix the problems at home, then come back and tell us how you did it. Any literate person who read the entire tweet would see that he was directing them to fix their congressional districts and report on how they did it. The same can be said for his tweet to Elijah Cummings. These tweets had nothing to do with race and everything to do with pointing out ineptitude if not wholesale corruption. The whole point is to DRAIN THE SWAMP! Call these elected representatives out on their shortcomings at home and point out to their constituents exactly how lame they are. Every time President Trump tweets something like this, he pokes a big gaping whole in the Democrat policies which have been failing their districts for decades.

    I do not think for a moment that Donald Trump is racist. Not even a little.

    I voted for Donald in 2016 and I will vote for him again in 2020. I very much love his America first approach.
    That said, I think he sometimes says some unbelievably stupid things and I think he can be a bafoon at times BUT I also think all in all he's doing a pretty good job considering the resistance and bias against him.

    change that view.

    You turn around ... it's two young white men. Or, if you like, two young Oriental or Asian men.
    Do you feel a sense of relief, that you wouldn't feel if it were two young Black men?

    If you do feel a sense of relief, you're a "statistical racist". Your brain has been sampling the world
    and has drawn some conclusions, using inductive logic.

    When you're looking for racism, you'll see it all around you. If you just live your life in a live-and-let-be style, then not so much.
    To use Dougs example...

    If I'm in the city at night and I hear footsteps behind me when I turn around....I am making a judgment on what I see. I am judging who is behind me and their threat level by their appearance, conduct. body language and behavior..... NOT THEIR COLOR.

    If I turn around and its two white, asian or black males in business suits or khakis and polos. I am guarded but relieved
    If I turn around and it two white, asian or black males with tattoos on their faces, pants around their ankles and wrestling with the use of a 3rd grade vocabulary...now I am on alert, guarded and I'm evaluating my surroundings.

    Color is irrelevant to me. Appearance, conduct and body language is everything. If you look like a drug user or thug I'm going to treat you as such until I know otherwise, same as I would the man in a suit.

    According to "our friends" the DemocRATS, if we voted for Trump and/or planning to vote for Trump, then. your are most definitely a racist!

    Which means I am a racist! and proud of it!

    It didn't start with the squad; it started on June 16, 2015, when Trump announced for President. Until then, he was loved by black community and political leaders.

    We don't have a large number of hard-core leftists on this site - maybe none at all, so we won't get many examples that we can refute. On other sites, with a cadre of left-wing diehards who can quote the Democrat talking points as well as anyone on MSNBC, there are a lot more examples, all easily refuted, that the left claims demonstrate Trump's racism.

    I do find leftists who are so left that they can't think for themselves tiresome, and I'd hate to see the amount of arguing that would come from having too many of those, maybe we need a few of them just to keep up the debate.

    Show me the numbers. Who commits the most crimes? Who commits the most murders? You watch tv and mobs of people storming a store and looting? Are they white? I never considered myself racist, you respect me, I'll respect you, simple. Then obama came along. Black employees at Walmart started looking at me with suspicion and caution. When obama came along, everything changed. As for locking my car? I lock EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME! As for people behind me, I only go to Walmart, can't keep track of everyone.

    I don't mean this negatively so please don't take it that way but.... Spend some time here.
    I absolutely agree with you that there is a prevailing political bend to this forum and we are absolutely among like minded people BUT there have been a few extremely spirited debates here among long term members. I have seen debates that have actually made me slightly uncomfortable as its not a good feeling to see long standing members that you have respect for argue with each other.

    Given that, one of the things I love about being a member here is the fact that I'm among like minded people.
