Yeah Trump's dad was literally in the KKK and was sued by the federal government because they wouldn't rent to black people lol

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

Yeah remember the time he said poor kids were just as smart as white kids

Or that Latinos aren't getting vaccinated because they're worried about deportation.

"unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things"

The beautiful eulogy he gave for his KKK mentor Robert Byrd.

Saying Obama was the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean.

“You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

The whole racial jungle thing back in the day. When he was fighting desegregation Kamala said that specifically had a strong impact on her growing up. Terrible stuff there...

Fucking Trump smh

Damm thats some false equivalency did he ever apologize for the central park 5 or have Richard Nixon sue him for racism lmao

I'm not sure about the first point.

Was he found guilty in that lawsuit or is an accusation automatically proof of guilt?

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

Oh sure. Not only have I thought about it but I believe it to be true. The whole country is racist. Look how crazy we're going for Ukraine when nobody gives a shit about CAR or any of the other countries committing atrocities because they don't look like us. Which means using racism to attack one party and not the other is a little whack.

We just signed a deal to give Jordan 10 billion

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22 edited Sep 22 '22

That's good. I just googled it. Took a long ass time to get it and that's over a 10 year period. In comparison we've done about 3 billion to the Ukraine in under a year and very quickly. It didn't take us 8 years to decide to help the Ukraine.

Edit: The ratio of Ukraine flags to Jordan flags as a show of support seems a little off too but that's anecdotal of course.

2

u/Natfigga Sep 22 '22

Jordan isn't defending it's sovereign lands against the region's greatest enemy/threat. If we didn't help Ukraine without waiting, the Ukraine we know wouldn't exist anymore.

Edit - The U.S also promised to help Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion. We did get them to surrender their nukes, after all.

-1

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22 edited Sep 22 '22

So it's not the level of the atrocities being committed. It's whether or not a country is being invaded that dictates the amount of aid we give.

Yeah that checks out. Explains why we don't do much about genocide, child soldiers and human rights violations but dive in head first for Ukraine.

Ethiopia is just a brutal civil war, no invasion. Check.

CAR just the worst human rights violations, no invasion. Check.

Cameroon and Sudan, no invasion. Check.

In hindsight maybe that was a mistake. I can't imagine they'd need so much aid if they still had nukes. Russia is already discussing a limited nuclear exchange so we might have really screwed them over taking away their nukes.

Edit: I removed the "the" . I had to think about it because I say the US but then I realized it must be because the US is a plural and Ukraine is singular. Does that check out or am I not getting it?

For anyone confused by the discussion of this comment, all of the statements were by Biden, none were by Trump.

Yes, the comment is disingenuous whataboutism, but now's a good time to remember that support of a political figure shouldn't be a cult -- it's appropriate to criticize them and not support statements they make when they don't line up with our ideals.

2

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

Well that was kind of my point. I'm not a fan of either one, I'm not a fan of hypocrisy and "letter voting".

We had a candidate that wasn't racist, at least not overtly and her open borders platform seemed to support my opinion.

She got my vote but I'm in the minority. Most of the country decided to vote based on a letter regardless that both are racist and neither is going to do anything significant for the people.

u/internetisantisocial Sep 22 '22

Yes, the comment is disingenuous whataboutism

No it isn’t, but that’s the canned response one might expect from liberal hypocrites

u/r3mixi Sep 22 '22

I’m Mexican I’ll be honest the deportation thing is kinda true. Latinos that are here legally and not have weird beliefs and theories that it can happen to them so they avoid health concerns. Especially when trump was the president.

1

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

That's surprising. I found immigrants were pretty supportive of his border policies. The sentiment I heard most often is we did things the right way to get into this country, we're tax payers and A not fair and B gives them a bad name. My story like yours is anecdotal. Maybe it's regional, this was in California and most always with contractors I'd chat up at whatever hotel I was at.

Actually in Maine as well. Hammy is an immigrant from Somalia iirc and she was a Republican and not a fan of refugees because they jumped through all the hoops and did everything the right way to get here.

2

u/r3mixi Sep 22 '22

Oh yeah I’m not arguing that they were against the border policies. They definitely were for it. But I think some of Trump’s wording might’ve sounded a bit too aggressive and a lot of the community thought he hated us. There’s also a lot of misinformation spread around this particular subject and it’s spreads pretty fast in the community. Latinos in general are very superstitious/fearful about deportation. I’ve had to correct many of my family members, acquaintances, and permanent residents that they shouldn’t be worried about it. Lots of fear mongering for sure.

I also live in California in a predominantly Latino city. I remember when trump got elected everyone was pretty scared honestly. If they had the correct information I doubt this would be a problem however.

1

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

I'm in complete agreement. You think we'll ever get past all this crap and all become fellow Americans again?

Personally I'm long past being over it. I'm trying to practice being moderate and respectful of all viewpoints. That's not to say I'm any good at it but I do put forth effort.

u/07throwaway9000 Sep 22 '22 edited Sep 22 '22

Yeah, here’s a big list of racist remarks and actions Trump alone has done. Please try harder. Trump hates Black guys counting his money. He prefers “short guys who wear yarmulkes every day”. What else, what else. In opposition to the Ground Zero mosque, he said of muslims: “Well, somebody’s blowing us up. Somebody’s blowing up buildings, and somebody’s doing lots of bad stuff.”

7

u/Safe2BeFree Sep 22 '22

Trump hates Black guys counting his money.

So the source for this is a book written by an ex-employee who was fired. They also state that Trump said in an interview that "the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true." Luckily they actually link that Playboy interview. The issue is that when you look at the actual interview, they didn't mention this quote. They were talking about his managerial style that the author of the book hated. While Trump did say that what O'Donnel wrote was probably true, it seems dishonest to claim that he was talking about the quote about people counting his money. He very clearly was referring to the topic the were literally in the middle of talking about in that interview. You have to see how dishonest it would be to claim that he was talking about the entire book. I mean, here's the full quote:

"Nobody has had worse things written about them than me,” Trump says. “And here I am. The stuff O'Donnell wrote about me is probably true. The guy’s a fucking loser. A fucking loser. I brought the guy in to work for me; it turns out he didn’t know that much about what he was doing. I think I met the guy two or three times total. And this guy goes off and writes a book about me, like he knows me! I understand it. He needs the money, so he uses my name to sell some books. But it must have been a lousy book because it didn’t sell any copies.”

It really doesn't even sound like he actually read the book.

Dog the 1994 crime bill was bipartisan and support by black community leaders.

It’s way more complicated than that and you have to understand the context it came about.

The 1994 bill that was strongly supported by black caucus leaders? That was later denounced as a mistake in judgement by all parties involved? Yeah, I guess it’s easier to pretend that nothing changed in nearly 30 years and that they’re all still the same. Hey, let’s go back even further and talk about how cool Republicans were when they were progressives that freed the slaves!

The bipartisan crime bill? It led to a reduction in violent crime. Now let's look at how republican prosecutors abused it to further the republicans racist agenda.

That article is highly biased. It says calling covid chinese virus is racist when thats what 90% of all viruses have been named til this point (spanish flu, german measles, etc). He said Kamala Harris “doesnt meet the requirements” to be VP and that’s somehow racist too because he’s apparently insinuating she wasnt born in this country? This article takes some amazing optimistic leaps of faith here

27

u/PM_me_your_whatevah Sep 22 '22

Damn I wonder if it’s possible they could both be racist? Maybe? I dunno, that would require me to not treat politics like a team sport. That would be a very rare take for either “side”.

The fact of the matter is that most democrat voters didn’t want Biden either, but it was the only option chosen by the establishment for us to put out the dumpster fire. So now we, I guess, at least just have a regular not-on-fire dumpster?

u/nope_nic_tesla Sep 22 '22

Ironically, Biden won the nomination primarily based on his very strong support among the black community. He did terribly in the early primaries, it wasn't until we got around to South Carolina and all the southern states where a majority of primary voters are black folks that he started racking up the delegates.

u/Geminel Sep 22 '22

I'm not, just pointing out the irony that one way or another most Americans voted for a racist so any racist mudslinging seems hypocritical. I voted for Jo.

Edit: Open borders Jo. Would have solved the border crisis and done the ethical thing by accepting everyone. People didn't seem to like that though. Clearly.

u/nub_sauce_ Sep 22 '22

If you talk to liberals you'll find that most of them actually don't deny that Biden has a racist past. The difference is that Biden doesn't push racist policies nowadays, unlike trump and the GOP at large

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

I do. I'm heavily involved in ballot access and spend a substantial amount of time talking with people all over the political spectrum. I get along with everyone except the party politics idiots and that's pretty evenly spread out between both sides.

As recently as 2019 Biden was still defending his stance on opposing desegregation back in the day. It makes me wonder if he's really had a change of heart or if he's pandering and doing the bare minimum to look good for the voters.

Edit: If he endorses an open borders platform I'll feel differently but until it feels like a disingenuous play at getting reelected.

Isn't that what you just did? You didn't bring up tRumps racism, just Bidens. And you know for a fact one is waaaay more racist than the other.

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

I don't know that. I don't know if we have the technology to factually determine something like that. What is really in someone's heart. Trump's racism had already been brought up. If it was a thread saying Biden was racist I would have just posted Trump stuff but it's not.

u/Independent-Ruin-185 Sep 22 '22

Biden defended his stance on desegregation as recently as 2019. Has he really changed that much in 3 years?

Iirc he used quite a bit of racial rhetoric during the election, I posted some of the quotes from just a few years ago.

Edit: I haven't heard a peep from his administration about open border policy. That's the play to show me you're not racist at heart. Right now it just feels like pandering. What would you say is the most substantial thing he has done to redeem himself for his past since being elected?

I honestly am not sure if Trump is racist or not.

I honestly think he's so narcissistic, that he doesn't even think other "normal" white people are the same as him.

He treats other white politicians and white supporters with the same indifference and disregard as he does POC's. He literally only caters to the people who benefit him financially and only while they do or until they're done fulfilling those commitments. Everyone else? He couldn't care less about them.

Look how he treated Matt Gaetz. Dude was simping hard like a True Stan for Trump and in the pictures, you wouldn't be shocked if Trump said he didn't even know Matt Gaetz was there.

He's a textbook sociopathic narcissist. He would, and probably has a plan to, throw his own children under the bus.
