I have talked to a few people about this and I have figured something out. People generally can't see that this stuff is racist, only because they don't understand what racism is. People who defend their racism by saying, "I have black friends." Or talking about how they are nice to black people. That is not all that racism is. Btw, I know they don't know what racism is, because the same "not racist" people were unhappy that I, "a black man" wanted to date their daughter/niece. Specifically because of how "black dudes typically are". They were 100% percent sure that being black meant I could only ever cheat, smoke and beat her. But. They aren't racist.

WOW. Another vaguely racist thing said by Trump. How many times are his supporters gonna have to defend him? I have always believed that if it keeps happening, it is not a coincidence.

The way The Daily downplays what’s happening at the border is infuriating. Also their language concerning how freshman politicians “should” act. Ugghhh, disappointed.
