Hi @CraigK ... welcome back!

So, you cannot find a single instance of racist behavior on the part of Donald Trump?

And you want us to point it out to you? Really?

It does look like you're trolling, as @Precise Allah suggested, but you may be as blind as you claim.

Do you see racism anywhere in America?

That might be a better question for yourself, if you're sincerely looking for it in Trump.

Once you recognize it in America, or others, it may lend itself to seeing it in Trump.

Then again, you may never see it all.

I do not have the wherewithal to point out Trump's racist behavior to you.

Should you grow beyond your current inability to see, and find an instance, please let us know.

I'm waiting with bated breath ... sort of ... :eyes:

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

I don't troll, Ma'am. If I feel the need to know, I ask.
Many people, incited by the media, were always screaming 'racist' whenever Trump did or said anything: ie, when he suspended Chinese entry into America during the start of the Covid panic. I have not pored over every action and tweet of the former president, but he fails to come off as a Nazi or closet KKK.
Do I see racism anywhere in America? 'Anywhere'?: yes. 'Everywhere'?: no. As Lincoln once said "If you look for the bad in people, you will always find it". I prefer to look for the good.
I have lived in countries where white people are very much persecuted for their skin color, so yes I think that I can recognize racism when I see it.

when republicans install themselves as the permanent minority government. when they do away with democracy.
when they roll back abortion rights, civil rights, voting rights and take us back to the forties.
the rest of us are going to go along peacefully ?
I aint a march'n for a democracy that never was. And I dam sure not going to pick up a gun to defend something that was thrown overboard 50 years ago much less to defend some capitalist extractive utopia where vote means squat and civil rights means the same lowest common denominator everywhere.

Shrug, let them try to save the sinking ship while bailing out the engine room and bilge with their Dixie cups. I bid that ship of fools fare thee well long ago.

Want something that'll hit home now?
Let's organize a general strike..........nation wide.

@CraigK ... thanks for your response.

Per a quick google search ... Trolls are people who leave intentionally provocative or offensive messages on the internet in order to get attention, cause trouble or upset someone.

Based on the above, the label troll is determined by the reader of the message. While it may not be your intent to appear troll-like, asking Black People on a Black Forum to show you where Trump has ever been racist, because you cannot see it, has the potential to easily be considered an attempt to get attention, cause trouble, or upset someone.

I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, but that does not change the fact that the commentary is troll-like.

Given that "troll" is determined by the reader of the message, it behooves the messenger to be mindful of where they are when posting their commentary so they do not appear troll like (if that is not their intent). Basically, common courtesies must be given by those that share, I suppose.

Black people are very familiar with racism and can easily point it out, wherever and whenever it rears its ugly head. We live it. We are subject to it, and generally, the perpetrators are white.

You're not the first white person that has said ... "I don't see racism (there)." ... and it is actually offensive to me, that you see no racism in Trump, all the while talking of racism as it relates to racism against white people (in a Black forum). Yeah, that's quite troll-like behavior.

Much in the same way that you do not see your own troll-like behavior, you may also not see racism in Trump. People see what they want to see. I'm reminded of a phrase :

"There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know".

White people are good for acting as if they see no racism, none occurred, in this situation or that. It happens probably every day. Your blindness in this capacity is not new or unique.

While you and others may be blind, we are not. We have no patience with showing white people the low down dirty racist behaviors they put upon us, as if white people are not already aware of what they do. This is lunacy and foolishness at best, in my humble opinion.

Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
