If Trump is a racist, then so was Obama

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving. BE FOREWARNED - if you are an intellectual lightweight, you might find it a bit rough in here. This place is kinda like a never-ending edition of the McLaughlin Group. (Whatever happened to Mort Zuckerman, anyway?)

It's sad when a police officer gets killed but it's equally sad when a police officer abuses his role in the community.
You're illustrating my point perfectly. When a black guy, at a BLM rally, who hates white cops, shoots and kills 5 white cops, it is fair to lay blame on both sides. When a white supremacist kills a woman at a white supremacist rally, laying blame on both sides (ie, Trump) makes him a racist. Moreover, considering the Charlottesville victim was white, race was not even a factor, so maybe someone could explain why Trump's comments blaming "both sides" make him a racist as so many in the media have claimed.
I have read another perspective that much of this excessive violence is related to stress and lack of training. I believe that's more likely the case than racism within the ranks...While most became police officers to help those around them...
Wait, I thought that the police were specifically at the "core" of the racism problem in this country?

You're still basing your arguments on the false logic that says if Trump is a racist, then Obama must also be a racist. Trump is, without any doubt, a racist, That fact stands on its own. His racism isn't contingent on anyone else also being a racist. Trump is a racist because of his own prejudices and his own attitudes, not because of Someone elses's.

It really doesn't matter who else might be a racist. It doesn't mitigate Trump's racism one iota.

Why would the FBI be investigating this if it was cartoonish?

I did... I haven't a clue what you are talking about... that author did some goofy gymnastics to argue racism has to be both personal and institutional... that's bullshit.

Clearly, Trump is a racist. He invests far more energy in attacking black athletes, than he does Vladimir Putin,or accused pedophiles.

If one cannot quickly determine with ones eyes, ears, and brain that Donald Trump is the epitome of all that is indecent - including deep seated and eagerly displayed racism - then one is in denial no matter what vast universe of evidence is presented.

And that denial is unmovable - no matter what - because it is actually ones SELF defense in having voted for the mentally ill con man. Keeping in mind some won’t admit to another soul their true vote - yet reveal it by ardently defending his always mounting dangerously ill behavior.

Worried whites who feel threatened - targeted by the candidate and Putin’s stealth propaganda machine - are responsible for awarding sicko Trump the power of The United States presidency.

God help our great country, and the world.

Trump - a dad - and grandfather - siding with a pedophile.

I rest my case.

In an election one need only be guilty in the court of public opinion..

Yes, we've covered this.

The veracity of the claims is irrelevant.

Although the evidence either way is damning against Moore...

Given his other shady behavior and preaching from the rooftops it would be no surprise if he went from one extreme with the girls to the other extreme with the preaching in the last 40 years. One may have even caused the other...

It's entirely possible that you are right, but we may never know for certain.

He's got Allred's client on the ropes over the yearbook... the fucker just might pull this election off.

Polling is showing it as a statistical tie... I would say given Alabama’s red nature that if he pulled it off it’ll be by the skin of his teeth...

Trump is another person where it’s easy to believe it and with the Billy Bush tapes it becomes all the more close to reality ..
