Alot of people seem to not understand what the word racist means.

Here's the definition:

rac·ist

/ˈrāsəst/

noun

1.

a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.


A user on this board said:

" Tump singled out Mexicans. Said the country wasn’t sending us their best people. Called them rapists.. Said Hondurans would infect us"

This does NOT make someone a racist.


I as a WHITE MAN so does a lot of HISPANICS agree with Donald Trump so are we too racist. I know MEXICANS who hate illegal immigrants how do you explain that?

The Libbos don't like him. Anyone they don't like is automatically a racist.

TrumpSpeak is subject to many interpretations and offers many opportunities for his political opponents to use it effectively against him. Nobody forced Trump to direct his illegal immigration rant(s) at any specific country of origin - he (foolishly?) did that all on his own.

Sorry, but the Google "English to Bongese" translator doesn't seem to be working.

Lol. "Hate" illegal immigrants? I think you outed yourself. I don't know any Mexican immigrants who "hate" illegals. They may not approve but "hate" is not the right word. I think you are projecting your own feelings in this case.

I think Trump's father made him a racist. Attitudes about people and race are usually handed down either inadvertently or deliberate. But in the end it really doesn't matter...

You are certainly directing the right question at the right folks, those with half a brain.

Trump simply dislikes anyone who is not him or won't kiss his ass. That's all it takes in Trump world.

I honestly don’t think he has given it enough, or any, thought to be considered a racist. Male, female, black or white, if you kiss his ass he likes you. If you criticize him he hates you. Everyone else doesn’t even register on his radar.

# 1 says it all about Trump. He thinks white people are superior to other races.
