Sometimes I don't understand what all of this is all about. because 
if all the Blacks, Hispanics and Jews in this country would unite and a force of one minority. there would be nothing that the Alt Right or the KKK or any of the white racists that do exist in this country would be able to utter a word.

True - Why thank you, rk.  you are very welcome and it should not be used as a mere insult without solid meaning. A descriptor, not an insult.  If one is not a racist they wouldn't be troubled by the descriptor because they'd know in their heart it wasn't true. when one calls another a "racist" that can be taken as nothing but an intended insult  Example - "all lives matter" is a valid and honest statement that we should all be able to get behind.  So is "Black Lives Matter" because it's included in all lives matter.  But some take exception to acknowledging the fact.  I know of no one taking such exception. However "all" is more inclusive than "black".

For someone who keeps bringing 'real Christian' up as an intended insult, wow....impressive that someone claims they know another's intent.  It's only an insult to those who feel it might apply to themselves.  Others might accurately see it as a point, that often, those who claim to be Christians don't really act as if the espouse Christian values.  you mean you don't know anything that would make a 'real Christian'?   No....wrong again, that's not what I "mean".  But thanks for asking.....

Pathetic.

"SPANKY" Trump has been a RACIST for decades.

 

He ran campaign with RACIST laden rhetoric.

 

Those that voted for him were energized by this overt RACISM.

 

They voted for him solely because of his RACISM.

 

"SPANKY'S" accession to the highest office in the land was merely a BACKLASH for having had a BLACK MAN in the White House for 8 years.

 

That was abhorrent to the Trump voters.


Any specifics as to his campaign's "RACIST laden rhetoric"?

 

In a way you are right, eight years of Obama helped Trump win. But it was his politics not his race. You see - usually people are motivated by other than racism (except the radical left which sees everything through their prism of race).


The campgns racist rhetoric? yes, been posted many times, but as a guy tha never sees color, you have chosing to make excuses for it.

 


wud you care to share you view of what was "campgns racist rhetoric"? the offerings of others has crashed and burned.
