There are many examples of President Trump showing his racial prejudices against people of colour, his words and actions have emboldened white nationalists. Below I will list a handful of examples of his racist rhetoric.
EDIT: When finding yourself in a hole, get a bigger shovel.From retweeting fake anti-muslim videos shared online by a fringe British ultranationalist group that drew condemnation from Britain's Prime Minister to his actions in gutting programs meant to stop right-wing terrorism,he will inevitably create more racial tension that will lead to racially motivated violence. When you had white nationalist and supremacy sympathizers in this administration such as Gorka and Bannon, while continuing to have the likes of Stephen Miller in the White House it only further emboldens the white supremacists and racists.
This is why so many of us are have been concerned by the actions of the President. Did you watch the President's unhinged press conference after the Charlottesville tragedy? I have never seen any head of state of a Western ally act in such a belligerent manner. He went so far as to defend Neo-Nazis at the Charlottesville Neo-Nazi rally. You can watch the entire press conference on PBS. How about his Arizona speech where he went on a tirade against the "fake media,"read out his previous words from the press conference while leaving out the most important and controversial bit - "fine people on many sides, on many sides" - equating Neo-Nazis with counter protesters and referring to them as fine people. He was defending Neo-Nazis. This was a Neo-Nazi rally. There were no fine people on both sides. They were making Nazi salutes, flying Nazi flags, wearing Nazi clothes, making Nazi chants. Here is a documentary by VICE News of the Neo-Nazi rally that took place, the one President Trump defended by stating that there were fine people on this side too.
So what raised our suspicions as to why we believe President Trump holds racial prejudices against people of colour?
- His public insistence that President Obama wasn't born in America is a racist conspiracy.
- In 1989 he wanted 5 innocent African-American boys to be executed for a heinous crime they did not commit. They were imprisoned for decades until DNA evidence exonerated them of the crime. A settlement was reached between the 5 men and the city of New York for $40 million, yet Trump was still attacking the 5 exonerated African-American men.
- In 1973 the Justice Department filed a civil rights case accusing the Trump organization for violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968 for discriminating against people for colour.
- As President he went so far as to attack a judge who was presiding over a lawsuit against the President's fraudulent Trump University. He argued that the judge was biased due to his Latin-American ancestry. It should also be noted that President Trump donated $25,000 to Florida Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi and AG Bondi decided not to investigate fraud allegations against Trump University. The donation was done through the Trump Foundation. The Trump Foundation was investigated over a number of issues and recently dissolved following an investigation led by the New York Attorney General.
Nothing to justify, he is getting all of the publicity without spending a dime. Exactly same shit he did previous election and y'all still don't see through it.
You are reading things I didn't say to fit your narrative. I've not said anything either way on the subject of him being racist.So are you saying exactly what I thought you'd say: he wasn't being racist, it was a publicity stunt, and it worked, he's a genius.
Oh and concentration camp is 100% fitting to what they're doing in the border. Every dictionary is against you.
I don't know if he is, I haven't seen him do anything overtly racist as of yet. The latest tweets are questionable as was him holding on to the birth certificate thing for a while now. So mildly racist perhaps. Certainly xenophobic to a certain degree.Also, do you consider Trump a racist or not? Since you have definitely not denied it.
When have I defended separating children from their parents? I defend some of his policies, and never the man himself (feel free to find prove to the contrary)You are defending a president whose separating children from their parents and putting them in inhumane
When was that?kicked out of the news by his open association with a pedophile sex trafficker
Again where have I defended the man rather than his policies?You have defended the man who is doing it, you've made excuses for him (as you have in this post) and that makes you complicit.
What actual racists things has he done, not said actually doneHow can you say you haven't seen him do anything racist after this? What we are seeing is just another installment of a long history of race-driven decisions going back to the 1980s.
My standard for racism is actions, you can talk shit all you want but if it's not reflected in your actions does it actually matter?that's your standard of what is considered racism then you are part of the problem.
I don't think he meant that. Not now, not then.Nothing to justify, he is getting all of the publicity without spending a dime. Exactly same shit he did previous election and y'all still don't see through it.
You can't compartmentalize him from his policies. The policies are coming from his attitudes and biases, there's no changing that.Again where have I defended the man rather than his policies?
What actual racists things has he done, not said actually done
Again, speech, tweets, and policy decisions are all actions or behaviors; all of which are observable. Look at any mental health assessment and the section for speech is listed under clinically observed behavior, as it is with clinical reports.My standard for racism is actions, you can talk shit all you want but if it's not reflected in your actions does it actually matter?
Why not? His policies are what actually matters, where they come from is irrelevant, some of the worst policies in the world come from the best of intentions, after all we all know what the road to hell is paved with.You can't compartmentalize him from his policies.
So you have never said you would kill someone and then not do it?Speech is a behavior, it's something we do.
Show me unequivocally racist policy decisions of hispolicy decisions
