Just wondering that if you were actually the least racist person anywhere in the world that you would actually have to state this?
Is this statement more or less likely to come out of the mouth of somebody who is actually racist?
Another lie to add to the over ten thousand since Trump's been in office. But who's counting, surely not those on the Right. No doubt he's racist...
Like I said somewhere else on these forums, if you repeatedly have to explain that you're not a racist, you're probably a racist.
Also, racists truly believe their prejudice is justified by truth. That is why they think they're not racist.
Here is a question I am curious of...
If you are accused of being racist (or anything else for that matter), but you feel that you are not or have not been...are you allowed to defend (or explain) yourself or do you just accept the label being placed on you?
Sure, but if you are repeatedly being accused of being racist, perhaps a little soul searching is in order.
I would completely agree with that...
The curious thing about politics....many politicians appear to have great working relationships with all folks prior to being elected....and then after become the label of the day (racist, misogynist, homophobic, etc.)
Happens to both sides in politics...
As a politician you should know that your words are more scrutinized then normal people. Trump is showing racist behaviour in his tweets. If he does not want to be seen as a racist he should tweet about different things.
He could have tweeted about the difference in opinion of him and Cortez. Instead he preferred to say Go back to your country. So it's only logical that you can call Trump a racist as he is accentuating heritage and not the political content of there differences.
I think you can defend it. Bring out your many friends of color who've known you for years. Show how you always rented your properties fairly to whomever wanted to rent them. I don't know, there are ways.
Probably the best way is to admit your prejudices.
However, that wasn't the question posed. You decided to pose another. Perhaps start another forum? How about answering this question?
Actually I posed a question to answer your question...
And that is simply...is the president allowed to defend himself from those who claim he is racist...? Every...Single....Day...
And as we all know...he seriously embellishes...which would explain the "least racist in the whole world"
The interesting thing, is people apply their own prejudice and bias to their own opinions of people, places, or things...such as there are those who love the president, and others who hate him...and both sides paint anything he does with their own personal paintbrush of bias and completely disregard anything from the view that opposes their own personal painting.
He's not defending himself. He's simply being defensive. In your experience, are people who are defensive normally telling the truth?
Defensive would be making the claim prior to an accusation.
Defending is after being accused.
As in...."I am not racist, but..."
vs "So and So said I am racist, and I am not and never have been"
He's using hyperbole and not facts or evidence whereas those accusing him have a mountain of examples to back up what they're saying. Again, he's not defending himself. He's being defensive and simply denying.
So you believe Trump's not a racist?
That's like saying, "George Wallace loved black people."
Personal experience says they certainly can be innocent, while defending themselves against slander and libel.
Whose "personal experiences'? Yours, or Trump's? Certainly he's had his share of law suits filed against him for discriminating against perspective black occupants of his rental properties, Or is this what you were referring to?
Lawsuits are a dime a dozen; how many discrimination lawsuits has Trump (not his business, being run by someone else) been found guilty in? How many in the last decade?
A poverty stricken person's low-cost lawyer has a snowball's chance in hell of beating a billionaire's legal team.
If Trump can't win, he pays people to drop the lawsuits. He has settled at least 100 of them, according to USA Today.
Otherwise, yes, he has been successfully sued by the feds for discrimation.
Must I give you the definition of 'personal experience'.?
I know democrats are used to making up definitions to suit any agenda but I wasn't aware this term had been redefined. What are you guys calling this now and what new term has replaced the old definition of 'personal experience'?
Yes, YOUR definition as you avoided answering the question again. Must I simplify it for you? Yours or Trump's "personal experience" was the difficult query....
And I specifically stated that I can tell you from personal experience. Since I am not Donald Trump the question was pointless.
"Personal experience says...." You could be speaking for anyone's personal experience. Wouldn't it have been easier to answer my query several posts ago?
No, you never speak for others....
Do you ever just accept a statement without making some giant issue from it?
Yes, in the event the opiner answers a query about their statement. Unfortunately, rather than answering the query, some avoid it and expect to get away with it. Therefore this leads to what you term "some giant issue."
Now there's no mistaken your response. See how easy it is to respond with something instead of nothing at all? One of the most intelligent responses I've ever received from you, LTL!
Of course he can defend himself, but he needs to give logical reasons as to why the statement is not true. But in this case, he just denied the statement without any reasonable explanation. Apparently he has no defense except denial.
The leaders of the Washington National Cathedral just ripped into Trump for his racist rhetoric.
But what do a bunch of nationally prominent Christians know about right and wrong.

I was reading your linked story when I happened to see this story promo on the side. It isn't a sidebar, but it is interesting. Seems that therapists in DC are being kept busy with their own psyche problems since Trump came into office.

I think a person who makes such a statement is foolish. Do they know everyone in the world? What would possess anyone to make such a statement.
I did see someone suggest to disprove racism to parade some people of color out. That sounds racist to me.
Reminds me a little of the late Mahammad Ali, having a playful boasting style. But Trump does not have anywhere near the integrity and courage that Ali displayed both in the ring and out.
Yeah, the least racist, the least misogynistic, the stable genius, why would we not want a beautiful President over some old crow?
This is the guy and the persona that we want with his finger on the crucial "button"? He must be trying to get attention, nobody can be that stupid to utter such things in public.
Wow! That's deep, aa! Not one of your best stolen memes. You must be losing your touch...
