    Do you believe that since the inception of Trump as president, has incidences of racism increased or do you strongly contend that Trump isn't racist at all as his remarks & reactions were taken out of context?  Your points, your views on the matter.

      I have always noticed more incidental racism in those who are from area's that include larger mixed groups of minorities .   Obviously NYC , where Trump is from ,  represents that truth.   Unfortunately we are politically exiting an era of elevated  media "racism .   Racism became a media tool as important as a video camera on national scene under Obama 's two terms.  Blame who you will for that !

      Like it or not almost from day one we saw the politicized , academic elitist assumption that charges of "racism  " were going to be a subject of his administration .  The" beer gardens" , the younger culture that voted for a first time ,  the Chicago mafia included in Obama's  administration , his team was looking to and for " social cause " to be a major working tool of his terms and racism was one  the first tools used .  I do however put most of the blame on his close ties to the divisive news  media , riots , cop killings , subjective media use , crime rates , criminal recidivism , the famous birth certificate issue.

      Trump and racism ?   Where ?   America , including Trump is in the process of putting that very loud and phony cause back into it's own  cage .    Yet again , The news media and it's addictive sensationalism is the catalyst for most  racial  divide anywhere in America today ,  Yes I do blame the news media , mostly .  Trump however deserves more credit than not for dissolving that very political correctness that bore racism during the last ten to fifteen years .

      Want' to find cause for elevated racism in America , look to the agenda of the NEW and  extremely divisive American news media ,  they have been dying a slow death for twenty five years plus , how better a way to "sell more media "  than to revive some of the most divisive issues of the last hundred years in America !     Racism being number  one on that list . ASk ourselves this '

      The Big Question;
      If there is racism in America , Why is it that that message is broadcast the loudest from the halls of News Media , Academia , halls of institutional government office and celebrity Hollywood  at a volume pitch loud enough to split ear drums BUT racism on the streets of American remains at an historical and an all  time low ?
