When asked by presenter Anderson Cooper whether Mr Trump "is a racist", the 29-year-old left-wing Democratic lawmaker responded: "Yeah, yeah no question."

"When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy, when you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it's night and day."

This was a bit surprising to me. Trump is from New York. He has many black friends. He has hired many people that are non-white. Many of his policies have greatly uplifted minority communities - Black unemployement down. Criminal reform done.

Dennis Rodman wouldn’t have a thing to do with him if he was even slightly racist.

Another AOC thread.

Hah.

But my 2 cents on this are that, I really don’t know if Trumps heart, or what’s left of it, that’s he is an in and out racist, he doesn’t strike me as one most of the time.

However, make no mistake, he absolutely and unrepentantly meant to appeal to racists during the campaign, the darkest sides od American populism, he didn’t use a dog whistle, he used a megaphone to broadcast it.

Slave owners hired people who weren't white to scrub their toilets and change their sheets and care for their lawns. Obviously they were not racists.

Being a slave owner in itself is not being racist.

Really? Denying the humanity of a person and treating them like property because of their race is not racist????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Care to offer a single one and some proof?

Unemployment low, check, no need to spout on and on about that, we know, but please, elaborate on all the specific policies aimed at uplifting "his African Americans" (Oh and letting unhinged Kanye have a bipolar episode on live TV does not count.)?

Please back this with credible sources too? IDC about bias so much as accuracy...

Funny to see all the old angry white men afraid of her...You go Girl!
Dislike of her political positions is not fear.
What you posted is dishonest spin, but I expect no less from someone who leans as far left as she does.

Cortez has you so worked up that you are now posting blatantly idiotic comments. More so than usual.

By the way, please do post the list of all of Trump's "black friends". Not his Hollywood friends. I mean his real black friends. I didn't know you were so intimate with the Trumps that you even know who his personal friends are.

Oh it's fear, you're figuratively pissing yourselves. Your ego is just too fragile to admit it, even to yourself, that's what makes it so hilarious.....:2rofll:

I know, that damn sciency stuff again! Doh!:roll:

I think you have to consider the fact, not all slavery was forced, many slaves were slaves voluntarily. They were provided food, shelter, and a way of life in a structured environment. Again, at the time this happened and given the environment. If you look at what I said from the lense of today it is completely absurd however I am saying thing through the lense of someone living in the 1700s. The construct of race and racism was completely different back then.

Also, many slave owners were black.
