    You alt right racists can shut up since you don't know what is racism because you keep doing it.

    Or you do, and you don't care that you are racists.

    Everyone is a racist in some ways, The Clintons used the Nizzer word many times but was not called or reported just ask the kitchen staff at the Whitehouse.

    A reasonable person might give her the benefit of a doubt and believe that she might be stupid enough to think that sanskrit is actually the language of India.


    But these fuckers never give US the benefit of a doubt, so fuck her.
