I don’t believe he is. Ever since the Russia collusion narrative has played out, the media has gone with the new tactic of labeling the President as a racist. This will probably be more effective than the Russia play. The timing for this is perfect for the left. They can sound bite by “ experts and talking heads” to every news outlet, all of which are complacent with the DNC, in the attempt to crush his public opinion.
Now is the time to fight back with full on attacks on the BS they’ve pulled and the illegal doings of the DNC,Clinton’s and the previous administration.

How can you tell if you are a 'racist' in America today?

(1) If you think you are and say you are, you probably are. KKK, neoNazis ... yep, probably 'racists'.
I call this kind of racist a Principled Racist. They've got a view of the world and no evidence can
change that view.

(2) Now, for the other 99.9% -- take this simple test:

You're walking down the street in a lonely area of the city, at night.
You hear footsteps behind you.
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?
(Not what you should feel, what you do feel.)

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.

If you don't feel a sense of relief -- if it would make absolutely no
difference to you who was behind you -- then either
--- you've just landed from Mars, or
--- you're a fool.

If you turn out to be a 'statistical racist', don't worry, you're in good company.

Because that test there.... that's taken from Jesse Jackson. He said it made him
ashamed to feel that way, but ... that's the way he felt. And he should know.

All the talking heads on TV are told what to say by the DNC department of propaganda. Some people have made a compilation ofvideos of them all saying the same thing, even using the same words.

I put my hand on my gun and go condition orange, and I cross the street, if they follow I go to condition red. White or yellow can kill me same as black. I'm a equal opportunity target.

Because they can't win over people of conscience and character, the Leftists first and only real strategy is to attack at the personal level and "demonize" anyone they feel is their opposition.

I keep hearing from black people (and now from white-hating whites) that black people can tell we're racist if we lock our car doors when a black person is walking in the street near us.

Of course what that black person has no way of knowing, and no interest in knowing, is that I lock my door if a white woman is walking toward my car, or if a white man in a suit and tie is walking toward my car, or a white kid who looks like he is on drugs, or a cop, or a kid, or anybody else.

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.

I've seen threads on this topic on other forums. Inevitably, no one is ever able to post a single thing Donald Trump has said or done that is racist. Oh, sure, someone will post quotes from CNN and MSNBC talking heads claiming that Trump is a racist but they can't post CNN or MSNBC stating actual racist things Trump has said or done. They'll quote Charlottesville and take it completely out of context. Their arguments of Trump's racism will be easily refuted.

And, just to get it on the table now, here's the complete context from Charlottesville - where he repeatedly condemned the white supremacists and violence and made it very clear he was not talking about them when he said there were good people on both sides. The two sides were those wanting to destroy our history and those who wanted to preserve the monument. The interview is far too long to quote the "both sides" comment in full context - read the whole thing. "Both sides" is way down, near the end.

Are there racists in the US?
Yup.

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.

Only white groups? You forgot BLM and Black panthers. etc etc

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.

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. :thumbsup:

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.
