Is Trump a racist?

I found this photo from before he was president, of Trump assaulting 2 black men.

There’s another picture of him choking an African American.

And there’s another picture of a young African American having to physically defend himself from Donald Trump.

There’s even this picture of a prominent African American minister forced to defend himself from Donald Trump with some kind of weapon.

OK…by now you’ve figured out that I’m being facetious. If you search online you can find a ton of photos like this one…

And this one…

And this one…

To whatever degree Donald Trump is or isn’t a racist wasn’t an issue when Trump was shoveling money to Democrats and throwing support behind activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

It was only when Trump became the political opponent of this person…

Is Trump a racist?

…that he suddenly became a racist.

Of course the people who called him a racist also accused this guy…

…of being a white supremacist when he ran for president. He remained a white supremacist until he lost then he stopped being a racist.

The same people also accused this guy…

of being the reincarnation of this guy.

It was only after he lost that Mitt became one of the good guys again.

One thing that both McCain and Romney had in common is that when punched, they tended not to punch back. They were unprepared for the kind of political knife-fighting described in…

Then along comes this guy…

…who used all the tactics in the progressive handbook, first against other Republicans (which the Democrats loved) and then against Hillary (which drove Democrats crazy).

Unable to deal with someone who used their favorite techniques better than they did, they took to calling him a … wait for it…


Trump may or may not be a racist, but he’s certainly no more or less racist when he was a big time campaign contributor for Democrats or buddy-buddy with the likes of Sharpton and Jackson.

The only reason it’s coming up now is because he’s a Republican president instead of a Democratic campaign contributor.
