There is racism in intent.  And there is racism in application.   And often there is both.   Even if someone doesn't think they are racist, or think Trump is racist, his policies are definitely racist/bigoted/discriminatory in application.  And that matters.   Racism is about power and it always has been.

Even if you aren't racist, supporting someone in power who is racist, is just as bad.   It perpetuates oppression of certain groups. 

 

Even being passive in the face of racism perpetuates it.  This isn't something people can just sit out. We all need to ask ourselves, which person am I?  The one who says,  I see there is racism, but it doesn't affect me, so who cares?   Or the one who says, I see there is racism, and it affects fellow Americans, so I care.

Sounds like you just can't win for losing, been there in the Army. There was the right way, wrong way, and the Army way. Not knowing you I would never prejudge however it is my firm belief that the President is a racist among other things.

Epster said to me, "The way I read this, she isn't saying you called her a racist. She's saying your claim makes about as much sense as calling her a racist. "

 

What claim did I make?

The way I read this, she isn't saying you called her a racist. She's saying your claim makes about as much sense as calling her a racist. 

 

But while I'm here: Which one of you guys said something about knowing a lot about a person by the people they walk with? Rhetorical, you know.

I realize men do not, by and large, inhabit the planet of nuance, however, speaking only for myself here: I heard a bullying tone in the tarheel's words, and so would tend to support @Soosie's feeling of sexism. It is not so much in the request as it is in the manner the request was made. He's a man demanding something in a domineering (you could say bullying) manner of a woman. That's sexism, dude.

 

There are numerous men on this site that employ bullying tactics. (Though men do not own this market, I should say.) Six or so months back I blocked, screened and filtered them via account settings here and in my email account and now am able to ignore them one and all. Bliss, truth be told. (<- PS @Soosie I highly suggest this move, btw)

It is a dumb bumper sticker but show me who you walk with and I will tell you who you are. Persons walking the Trump path have, invariably, turned out to be racist. 


See that? Because I voted for Trump and am not calling for his impeachment, I have just been called a racist by a person (giving the benefit of the doubt here) who does not know me, has never met me, knows next to nothing about how I spend my time and clearly only posts smack for fun.

 

Not. Worth. My. Time.

Why does Soosie keep making up stereotypes? Who are "you people"? 

 

To the best of my knowledge, I never called her a racist. Why do some take the words of 1 or 2 people and blame an entire group?

Never in my life did I ever see anyone describe a reasonable request to document/prove one's argument in a debate as a male-female issue. This feels like the Fox Twilight Zone., @critical Thinking........Makes as much sense as calling me racist for any and everything I post. The only gripe I had with Obama was he was a ineffective leader and he drove me nuts with his "Uh" "Uh" when he spoke. I think I did once say Michelle needed to get in shape before she started her drive regarding school lunches. Shame on you people for whining at me about your favorite president. So, everyone didn't think he was wonderful. Get over it. Put your big boy and big girl shorts and panties on.

@nctarheel......guess your demands of me are Tough T. I keep wondering why you as a male think you can DEMAND of me a female anything. I would call that sexist.

Because you are a woman you are not to be held to the same level of proof?  

 

Are you also a blond and should not be expected to be logical or intelligence then?
