Interesting take on a few issues here. Lots of good fokes around here these days have been talking about How Trump and republicans are promoting some sort of White Supremacist agenda or ... war against black Americans. Found this commentator who helps bring a few things to light. Question. Which is more important? words spoken which can be twisted to portray what some political hack group wants?
or actual actions?

In my estimation, in this very short clip this guy blows out of the water, much of the Leftist narrative .. Trump Racist

the #1 tool of the corrupt Democrat Party is accusing people of being racist
And when you use a tool continuously without sharpening and maintaining it, it stops working.

Delicious.

Trump has a long history of racist controversies​

Here’s a breakdown of Trump’s history, taken largely from Dara Lind’s list for Vox and an op-ed by Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times:

  • 1973: The US Department of Justice — under the Nixon administration, out of all administrations — sued the Trump Management Corporation for violating the Fair Housing Act. Federal officials found evidence that Trump had refused to rent to Black tenants and lied to Black applicants about whether apartments were available, among other accusations. Trump said the federal government was trying to get him to rent to welfare recipients. In the aftermath, he signed an agreement in 1975 agreeing not to discriminate to renters of color without admitting to previous discrimination.
  • 1980s: Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, accused another one of Trump’s businesses of discrimination. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Brown said. “It was the eighties, I was a teenager, but I remember it: They put us all in the back.”
  • 1989: In a controversial case that’s been characterized as a modern-day lynching, four Black teenagers and one Latino teenager — the “Central Park Five” — were accused of attacking and raping a jogger in New York City. Trump immediately took charge in the case, running an ad in local papers demanding, “BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!” The teens’ convictions were later vacated after they spent seven to 13 years in prison, and the city paid $41 million in a settlement to the teens. But Trump in October 2016 said he still believes they’re guilty, despite the DNA evidence to the contrary.
  • 1991: A book by John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump’s criticism of a Black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”
  • 1992: The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino had to pay a $200,000 fine because it transferred Black and women dealers off tables to accommodate a big-time gambler’s prejudices.
  • 1993: In congressional testimony, Trump said that some Native American reservations operating casinos shouldn’t be allowed because “they don’t look like Indians to me.”
  • 2000: In opposition to a casino proposed by the St. Regis Mohawk tribe, which he saw as a financial threat to his casinos in Atlantic City, Trump secretly ran a series of ads suggesting the tribe had a “record of criminal activity [that] is well documented.”
  • 2004: In season two of The Apprentice, Trump fired Kevin Allen, a Black contestant, for being overeducated. “You’re an unbelievably talented guy in terms of education, and you haven’t done anything,” Trump said on the show. “At some point you have to say, ‘That’s enough.’”
  • 2005: Trump publicly pitched what was essentially The Apprentice: White People vs. Black People. He said he “wasn’t particularly happy” with the most recent season of his show, so he was considering “an idea that is fairly controversial — creating a team of successful African Americans versus a team of successful whites. Whether people like that idea or not, it is somewhat reflective of our very vicious world.”
  • 2010: In 2010, there was a huge national controversy over the “Ground Zero Mosque” — a proposal to build a Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan, near the site of the 9/11 attacks. Trump opposed the project, calling it “insensitive,” and offered to buy out one of the investors in the project. On The Late Show With David Letterman, Trump argued, referring to Muslims, “Well, somebody’s blowing us up. Somebody’s blowing up buildings, and somebody’s doing lots of bad stuff.”
  • 2011: Trump played a big role in pushing false rumors that Obama — the country’s first Black president — was not born in the US. He claimed to send investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama’s birth certificate. Obama later released his birth certificate, calling Trump a “carnival barker.” The research has found a strong correlation between birtherism, as the conspiracy theory is called, and racism. But Trump has reportedly continued pushing this conspiracy theory in private.
  • 2011: While Trump suggested that Obama wasn’t born in the US, he also argued that maybe Obama wasn’t a good enough student to have gotten into Columbia or Harvard Law School, and demanded Obama release his university transcripts. Trump claimed, “I heard he was a terrible student. Terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?”

For you to decide.

Decide who as president has done more for black Americans or against? If I had to decide that, surprisingly we can see It's not Barrack Obama who passed the crime bill which predominately helped Black Americans it was TRump....
BUT.. of course to Democrats, that doesnt matter. It was Trump.

And it was Trumps policies that had African American unemployment at an all time low... and employment still rising just before the pandemic.... not those policies of any Democrat president. Yet none of that matters because it was a guy called Trump.


And while good liberals like Elizabeth Warren lie about their own kids schooling... send them to some priveleged PRIVATE school.. they will fight hard to keep black children... locked into the system of failing public schools. Biden just the same. They would do away with educational outlets for African American children. It was only the "racist" Trump, who has done the most for trying to shake things up in the education industry.
Yet you want to lap up the outward appearances of these Democrats as at best they are apathetic to the plight of America's poor, if not outright instrumental in keeping them down forever.

Relax, it was sarcasm for those in the know. :)
/——-/ Sorry. I’ll try to take my post down if not too late. Sometimes sarcasm doesn’t translate well on the internet.

I am a Democrat. Whenever I post an unflattering fact about Negroes people shout "Racist!" at me.

Instead of trying to prove that I am not a racist, I ask politely, "What did I say that is not true?"
