    OK, so one black man (currently employed by Trump) is saying he's not a racist. How many black men and women are saying that he is?

    Race need not be mentioned for something to be racist.

    Confirmation bias. Sure. It’s happening. You can see it right here in this thread with every last one of us to varying degrees.

    But at some point we all need to stop look at what someone said, our “side” or not, and push back. This is one of those moments imo.

    I refer back to my earlier post where I noted that some people see what they want no matter the context just to continue their hate of the president.

    You'll refer back to your history, but ignore donnie's?

    Help me reconcile that.

    Right, because it's not possible for someone to dislike the president because of what he says and does. They must have ulterior motives.

    LOL who is this good person that's running that you are in love with?

    Maybe my way is universal. Maybe the reason incumbents win so damn much is because the opposition becomes downright unpalatable with their utter bull ****, and we prefer the incumbent to lunacy. Maybe Trump pettiness is way easier to stomach than rancid garbage being constantly spewn by the likes of the thrillers, zombies, and h8lines of the world, and the candidates running that type of campaign.

    Trump >>>>> the garbage Democrats put forward

    Reading too much into what is actually being said and implying an overly negative tone is absolutely what is happening. Not every time to be certain but enough where the writing is on the wall plain as day.

    Can't cry wolf at every turn and expect to be taken seriously.

    You just described the President's tweet to the "squad". It was about what they say and do, not the racist "ulterior motives".

    Yes, I also tell people of color to go back where they came from when I disagree with what they say or do.

    We could go around and around on this all day, but I'll just say this- when someone regularly uses racist language and enacts racist policies they tend to lose the benefit of the doubt when they say things that could be interpreted one way or the other.

    History of said person. I’m far more willing to give that point to a man like @colton for example. I’d give it to most here.

    They (far left nuts, some even reside on this board) are rewriting what the word "racist" means. Remember when you were called a racist for calling the president a racist? Hmm

    Yet another inspiring rally from our president:

    Lies about Omar and then the crowd chants, “send her back.”

    But yeah, I guess my family is doing ok so I’ll look the other way...

    I've never given the guy the benefit of the doubt. I still don't.

    Change my mind. What about him should I give him the benefit of the doubt for?

    Telling a person of color to "go back where they came from" has always been racist. This is far from new.

    Wait are Trumpers here arguing that their boy isn’t a racist? How stupid are you people? It’s pretty well known that he’s a racist. Like for decades. What next? Denying his womanizing?

    From discrimination against blacks in the 1970s and 1980s to the Central Park 5 to birtherism to his entire campaign to today. If you deny he’s a racist you’re either a troll or a complete moron who should stop posting.

    Might you be selling short the "history" @Harambe referenced? Loads of resources covering that history, and the overall image that emerges is such that many would conclude that he is a racist....
