MLK nephew and Trump, WTF?

Should be ashamed.



I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed. But I dont think he is a racist in the traditional sense.


No sir, he is a straight up racist and you should know better.

5. This was yesterday at the MLK exec. order signing

MLK's nephew said Trump talked to him in the back room and stated that he is not the man the press is portraying. I guess MLK's nephew was being generous, and forgetful. Besides the continual racists comments spewed from Trump's pie hole, he was sued for refusing to allow people of color to rent from him.

I wonder what he meant by traditional racism?

3. What is the traditional sense?

Wearing hood?

Honestly, parsing out that mess is stupid. Acting like a racist is being a racist. Saying racist stuff is being racist.

I'm sure there are some good people in this world that sometimes struggle to uncover their own unconscious bias. Trump is not one of them. The only reason he doesn't wear a hood is because apologists allow his bigotry - basically unchecked.

He doesn't need to hide because we allow it
