Reminders of Trump's Racism...

For at least the past 3 years we have repeatedly been exposed to tRump's racist comments . His history of racists remarks goes back much further. As a public service reminder we are reproducing some of his statements in hopes that it will encourage folks to seriously consider what party candidates to vote for in 2018 (as well as 2020) and turn out in greater numbers than is the norm.

Trump’s real-estate company tried to avoid renting apartments to African-Americans in the 1970s...

“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks.”

In 1989, Trump took out ads in New York newspapers urging the death penalty for five black and Latino teenagers accused of raping a white woman in Central Park; he argued they were guilty as late as October 2016, more than 10 years after DNA evidence had exonerated them.

“I think sometimes a black may think they don’t have an advantage or this and that. I’ve said on one occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I really believe they do have an actual advantage.”

He began his 2016 presidential campaign with a speech disparaging Mexican immigrants as criminals and “rapists.”

He uses the gang MS-13 to disparage all immigrants.

In December 2015, Trump called for a “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” ...

rump said a federal judge hearing a case about Trump University was biased because of the judge’s Mexican heritage.

In June 2017, Trump said 15,000 recent immigrants from Haiti “all have AIDS...”

Trump vulgarly called for less immigration from Haiti and Africa and more from Norway.

Trump called Obama (who was editor in chief of the Harvard Law Review) “a terrible student, terrible.”

Trump frequently claimed that Obama did not work hard as president.

Trump falsely claimed that President Obama “issued a statement for Kwanzaa but failed to issue one for Christmas.”

Trump said, “Our inner cities, African Americans, Hispanics are living in hell because it’s so dangerous. You walk down the street, you get shot.” Trump also said to black voters: “You’re living in poverty; your schools are no good; you have no jobs.”

He frequently offers false crime statistics to exaggerate urban crime, including about Oakland, Philadelphia and Ferguson, Mo.

He is quick to highlight crimes committed by dark-skinned people, sometimes exaggerating or lying about them

He frequently criticizes prominent African-Americans for being unpatriotic, ungrateful and disrespectful.

He called Puerto Ricans who criticized his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria “politically motivated ingrates.”

He has retweeted white nationalists without apology.

He called some of those who marched alongside white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., last August “very fine people.”

Trump endorsed and campaigned for Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate who spoke positively about slavery

Trump pardoned – and fulsomely praises – Joe Arpaio, the Arizona sheriff sanctioned for racially profiling Latinos

Trump took out advertisements alleging that the “Mohawk Indian record of criminal activity is well documented.”

In 1993... “I think I might have more Indian blood than a lot of the so-called Indians that are trying to open up the reservations.”

In a November 2017 meeting with Navajo veterans of World War II, Trump mocked Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.”

Trump has trafficked in anti-Semitic caricatures, including the tweeting of a six-pointed star alongside a pile of cash.

Trump once referred to a Hispanic Miss Universe as “Miss Housekeeping.”

At a June 2016 campaign rally, Trump pointed to one attendee and said: “Oh, look at my African-American over here. Look at him.”

tRump won the presidency of the world's greatest melting pot. A nation of immense diversity that has been successful (GREAT) in part because of its diversity. This president by his words and actions has demonstrated that he doesn't understand this and that he doesn't want to. He is obviously comfortable being the xenophobe we've come to know.

tRump, a man who seemingly has no knowledge of our history or any desire to learn it must be turned out of The White House in 2020. That is if he doesn't resign first or get impeached and removed by the senate.

On a more immediate note the 2018 mid term election is critical as well. Maybe more since republicans who have supported tRump must go as well. Ridding the House and Senate of enough republicans to flip them must be job one. Because if that becomes a reality it is a huge game changer and would tie the racist tRump in knots. IE effectively obstruct and defeat his agenda just as the rethuglicans did to President Obama.

  1. Trump’s racism is clearly documented in his own words, over and over again!

  2. Yes it is. For the party, and I assume the many "good" republicans and conservatives it's simply a shrug, a so what, and nothing to see here, move on attitude. Unfortunately that sentiment may be larger than many think it is.

    And now there is Kavanaugh. Birds of a feather flock together.

  3. What I've heard is that Ronan Farrow might have the Apprentice tapes. So we may actually be hearing tRump on tape using the N-word. Not that there is any doubt in my mind AT ALL he uses that word regularly. Hopefully any audio/video tape is released before the midterms. Not that any hardcore tRumpers will be convinced. They will likely like tRump even more. Because he is not PC and willing to "tell it like it is".

    Some people might be convinced, however. Either (1) nonvoters who are finally convinced of how awful tRump is and decide they should do something this time. (2) Prior tRump voters who have finally had enough and decide tRump needs to be checked. Or maybe they just stay home in disgust.

  4. Lets hope they don't just stay home in disgust. It's past the time for real patriots to step up to the plate and end to tRump's insanity.
