Others are open to justify his actions as not racist, to support their own views.

 

 

 

 

Or just calling it as they see it 

 

I mean his approval rating around 43% right now so either a large amount of americas doesn't mind supporting a "racist" or they don't see him as a racist I think the latter is far more likely. 

 

 

 

 

He is more than a racist, he adds to his list of personality traits, misogyny, lying, xenophobia, homophobia, teratophobia,  to name a few

Almost 6 in 10 Americans think Trump is a racist.

 

 

Hillary Clinton has a 99% chance of winning the election in 2016

Is that a statement of fact or your opinion?

Since you don't believe other people's polls then you'd then excuse me if I don't believe your assertion that Trump has 43% support.

 

Polls aren't the end of all. Actions are the end game. And Trump is racist because like the Judge I mentioned before I know it when I see it.

It is an opinion based on fact and evidence.

No they are not but im basing it off all polls not from one with a political bias so its statistically it's probably more accurate

Thanks I disagree

They probably don't see themselves as racist. 

 

Here's an example of unconscious racism:

 

My son's boss is NZ born Indian.  They work together. People almost always assume that my son is the boss.

 

Not just "sometimes" - it's almost always.

 

 

If everyone has these racist attendances why is it even purport it to a political point of view like Trump supporters

 

 

"tendencies"?

 

Because Trump uses unconscious racism as a wedges to divide (and conquer).

 

The GOP used this with their campaigns on Facebook using Cambridge Analytica, Russian Trolls working (or not) for Putin did the same.

 

That's fact BTW - not "opinion".

So according to fred99 a large % of people are racist because they assume a white person is boss over an indian if that is the case and most people are racist why even bring it up?

You don't understand there's a difference between conscious and unconscious racism?

 

Yes - most people are unconsciously racist.  That can be proved with psychological tests.

The GOP used this with their campaigns on Facebook using Cambridge Analytica, Russian Trolls working (or not) for Putin did the same. No evidence for Trump's collusion with Russia has been presented thus far so first statement is beside any point. Cambridge Analytica got turned down by trump's campaign because they thought they where full of it.

Correct. It's called casual racism, and is very common. That doesn't make it OK, and is something we should all be aware of and look to improve in ourselves.

But Donald Trump's well documented behaviour and comments go way beyond casual racism.

So Trump is unconsciously racist or consciously racist in your opinion?

No where did I imply that? All i said was assuming this is true why bother calling trump racist anyway if everyone is?

It doesn't matter. It's racism. One is no better than the other.
