“The President is a Racist!”
Those are the words exclaimed by CNN anchors Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper on prime time television. For the first time in history a major news network referred to a sitting president of the United States as a racist.
When Theodore Roosevelt condemned Japanese Americans to internment camps for no other reason than their race he wasn’t declared a racist. When Lyndon Johnson referred to Blacks are ‘niggers’ he wasn’t declared a racist on prime time TV either.
Is Donald Trump a racist? What has he done that was so dire that it rose to a major network declaring him a racist on prime time TV?
Calling someone a racist is one of the worst insults one can dish out in this day and age. As a gay black politically aware male I’m especially sensitive to accusations of racism or homophobia. Therefore in this piece I take the time to examine whether or not President Donald Trump is a racist.
Who I am
Before we begin I wanted to start off talking about my background that way you will get a better idea of my perspective.
As stated previously I am an openly gay black male. I have fought for same-sex marriage and will continue to do so.
I am a world traveler!
Having been to almost all four corners of the world I understand multiculturalism and have seen the beauty that non-American cultures have created. I’ve also seen many other things as well…
Racism is a heavy charge
Someone being racist is one of the worst things a person can be in my eyes. I put a racist in roughly the same category as a perpetual thief or maybe even a rapist.
Therefore like any heavy charge there needs to be heavy evidence and of course the burden of proof is on the accuser.
So let’s address their accusations and the evidence they present of racism one-by-one shall we?
Donald Trump is a racist because he called Haiti and other ‘brown’ countries a shitholes
A couple of weeks ago the President’s off the cuff comments in a private meeting swept the nation by storm. Apparently in a private meeting he referred to Hati and other African nations as shitholes and asked why should we want immigrants from those places instead of from Norway.
Is it racist to call Haiti and other ‘brown’ countries shitholes? No! They are shitholes!
Haiti is covered in garbage. Two thrids of its population lives on less than $2 a day (the UN standard for adjunct poverty) and it’s had coups 32 times since it declared independence from France in 1803!
It was frankly just gross to see Anderson Cooper and other CNN puppets cry contrived tears on TV about the President calling Haiti a shithole.
You want to see them really cry? Drop them off in downtown Port Au’ Prince and tell them they live there now.
The same goes for most of Saharan Africa which houses 69% of the world’s HIV infected population and accounts for 74% of all the world’s AIDS related deaths!
Some will say I’m missing the point. It’s not that he called those nations shitholes its that he said he doesn’t want immigrants from those shithole nations. But I don’t think that’s racist either.
I’m weary of having immigrants from any country that embraces leftist socialist ideals (many of them white). Why? Because of their race? No. Its because I don’t want them bringing that garbage ideology over here.
We’ve got too many liberals here as it is. Why do we need more? Look at what the surge of Latino activist immigrants have done to California!
It was already left leaning before they came but an influx of left leaning Latino voters have made the state the nation’s liberal Vatican.
I am not racist against Latinos. Cubans are of the right mindset and helped Florida embrace economic freedom whereas immigrants from Mexico and El Salvador have helped push California to the far left.
So far to the left that they pass loony laws like making California a sanctuary state and that its okay to knowingly spread HIV.
Trump is a racist because he condemned counter-protesters in Charlottesville
Lets start off by going over what happened in Charolettesville Virginia. On August 12th 2017 right wing groups, including some white supremacists held a rally to protest the removal of the confederate commander Robert E. Lee.
That’s their right in America.
A large group of counter protesters showed up to oppose the rally.
That’s also their right in America.
The two sides began to clash and Jason Alexander drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters. President Trump then condemned ‘both sides’ .
Is it really racism? Lets look at the facts. The main stream media, CNN specifically, tried to make it sound like the counter-protesters were singing coombayaa and that the white supremacists attacked them.
That’s just a lie.
The counter-protesters were aggressive and militant. Even going so far as to throwing bags of urine at the white supremacists.
Two of my producers just got sprayed with urine. Lovely. Hard to keep your cool.

Now, I’m certainly not sad to see white supremacists have urine thrown at them but let me ask you. How would you react if you had people throwing their piss at you and your friends and the police were doing nothing about it?
Jason Alexander was wrong and will probably spend the rest of his life in jail for what he did but why is it wrong for the president to condemn white supremacists as well as those throwing piss at people?
You know both sides…
Now of course CNN took sides (even though they claim to be neutral) by saying it was not a ‘moral equivalent’.
Yeah okay CNN how about I throw a bag of my piss at your people for reporting fake news and see how ‘morally equivalent’ you find that.
Trump is a racist because of his ‘Muslim ban’
The propagators of the trump is a racist narrative will point to the President’s executive order suspending immigration from certain largely Muslim nations to the United States until we can get a better vetting system.
What the propagators neglect to mention is that the so-called ‘Muslim ban’ doesn’t affect 95% of the world’s Muslims.
Yeah some Muslim ban…
Also, its worth mentioning that cities with high densities of Muslim populations like Paris and London have experienced an increase in radical terrorism incidents while cities like Soul and Tokyo haven’t.

In fact according to Reuters incidents of terrorism that led to a fatality have increased by a factor of 15 in Europe since just 2012!
Trump is a racist for criticizing illegal immigrants from Mexico
It’s safe to safe most of us have heard the infamous words of one of the President’s early speeches.
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re rapists, they’re bringing crime …and some, I suppose, are good people.
Was this a nice thing to say? No!
Was it totally inaccurate? Also no!
Was it ‘racist’? Hell no!
Meet Edgar Mendoza (photo above). He is an illegal immigrant from Guatemala who raped a 6 year old girl in Maryland while she was in bed.
Edgar Mendoza, 32, is accused of breaking into a Trenton, N.J. home at about 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 19 and molesting a 6-year-old girl while she was in bed, according to the Trentonian. Her father realized something was amiss when he noticed an upstairs light was turned off, according to the Star Ledger.
When the father entered the bedroom, he found Mendoza on the young girl’s bed, police said. Mendoza leapt from the second-story window and ran off, police said. The father called police.
Now we all know the left will say there was a study done that illegal immigrants commit less crimes than US citizens. The accuracy of this study is debatable for a number of reasons that I don’t have time to address here.
But even if that study is accurate so what? There are still illegal immigrants committing crime and those crimes wouldn’t have been committed had they not been here in the first place!
Lets see if your daughter is rapped and someone telling you that ‘illegal immigrants commit less crime than native born citizens’ gives you solace.
Now let us go into why Trump’s statement wasn’t racist. Let’s imagine a world where there is no race. Everyone is purple okay? Everyone still with me?
Okay now in this scenario you have country A and country B both of which are populated by purple people with no distinctive physical characteristics.
Now lets say that a candidate from country A says that some of those that arrive from country B are miscreants. There have also been very public examples of miscreant behavior from people in country B (like handing dead bodies from overpasses).
Does that make that person from country A ‘racist’?
No it doesn’t!
While the statement isn’t totally accurate it doesn’t make it racist. If you can make the same argument without applying race then the argument can’t be inherently racist.
While President Trump is not a racist in the definition that most of us carry he may be a ‘neo-racist’. A neo-racist is someone that says something that the left doesn’t agree with or that many don’t consider to be politically correct.
The constant shouts of racism by the left and its pals in the main stream media, especially CNN do nothing except dilute the term of ‘racism’.
Thanks to the likes of Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon the phrase ‘racist’, despite my earlier assertions, has lost almost all meaning.
Calling someone a racist is nothing more than a tired trope used to silence those that we disagree with or just plain don’t like.
That does more damage than true racism ever could in modern times.
