Trumps History of Racism

Those of you who believe that Donald Trump is addled and his racist rants are just for publicity do not really know The Donald. Trump actually has a history of being boorish toward African-Americans. It seems that he has always lead with his mouth and was actually sued by the Justice Department once in the 70s.

A recent article states that Trump was sued by the Justice Department because he discriminated in one of his apartment complexes against blacks and other minorities. Apparently, Trump had different rental terms for blacks in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island than he had for whites. He hired non-other than McCarthy era lawyer Roy Cohn--he of I hate homosexuals because I am one fame—to defend him. After the judge censured Cohn, Trump settled the case, but was made to pay later applicants for telling them that there were no apartments available.

In 1989 when a white female jogger was brutally beaten and raped, Trump took out full-page ads in newspapers asking for the death penalty. The teens were later exonerated when the real rapist confessed and his DNA matched the DNA found on the victim.

In a book called “Trumped” written by John R. O’Donnell, Trump is accused of saying that laziness is a trait in blacks and that he did not like black guys counting money and the only people he wanted counting money were short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Trump did not deny O’Donnell’s charges.

There are more. However, suffice it to say that The Donald may be a bundling wind-bag, but his latent racism is something that he has carried for some time. Including his new ideas that President Obama was not a good enough student to get into Ivy League schools. He once said about affirmative action, “If I was starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black because I really do believe they have the actual advantage today.” I would love to see him as any kind of black.

      I think half the rubbish Donald Trump is ranting about is just to get himself attention. I bet he doesn't even run for President.

      Habuels was very specific about the reasons he concluded Trump to be racist. Oddly those reasons have nothing to do with Obama's policies or ideology. I'd like to know Mr. Newshawker, What exactly are President Obama's policies and ideology that you hate so much. I'd like to hear some specifics.

      You believe in the Bible...God created man in his own image...did that include you?

      Get over it man! every person who criticizes President Obama is racist? I was born and raised in Nigeria, and I detest Obama's policies and ideology, does that make me racist? Unless i missed something, Donald Trump may be boorish but he is certainly not racist!The bible tells me that the Jews are the chosen ones, when did African Americans become the chosen ones?

      If one more person tells me all this hullabaloo is not racist, I might scream. It's the Mississppi Plan all over again and if they get their way, Jim Crow will be dancing his silly jig soon. Trump is a buffoon.

      up/useful and awesome
