That's interesting, considering that historically the KKK is a branch of the democratic party.. and many KKK members endorse Hillary Clinton.

And since we're on the topic, could you explain exactly what is racist about Trump's campaign?

Is BLM racist?

Because it isn't.

There are still stupid, bigoted individuals, but there isn't anything keeping minorities from success. Sadly, most liberals need racism to be an issue to stay relevant.

If putting America's interests before other country's and protecting her borders is racism, I'm fine with that.

One thing a guy like Trump proves is that if it weren’t for racism in America much of what liberals want would have been done. As it is in European countries…. Such as real universal health care and real helping the poor out of poverty.

The problem is conservatism( and the GOP) is so littered with racists that they refuse to help the people at the bottom (in America the minorities of color mostly) so they maintain conservatism to keep the minorities from being assisted.


This is proven by Trump in that he’s actually a liberal moderate with some conservative sounding tough guy anti-minority rhetoric to placate the racists amongst the conservatives.

That’s why the KKK, various other overt racists and other bigots like Alex Jones and Jess Rense are for Trump.


Show me anything Trump has said that's anti-minority or racist. You know there are a lot of anti-white racists in the Democrat party. You have open support for brown supremacy groups like La Raza and Aztlan. The Democrats openly promote and support BLM, which calls for racial segregation, violence against whites and actually targets whites for racial attacks. College campuses are inundated with white shaming, white guilt, the promotion of anti-white stereotypes like white privilege and the list goes on.

Does this racism bother you at all? I see nothing at all like this coming from the main stream right.

National Black Republican Association Endorses Donald J. Trump


We, the grassroots activists of the National Black Republican Association, are pleased to announce our endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America.

As citizens who happen to be black, we support Mr. Trump because he shares our values. We, like Mr. Trump, are fiscally conservative, steadfastly pro-life and believers in a small government that fosters freedom for individuals and businesses, so they can grow and become prosperous.

We are deeply concerned about illegal immigration, a major cause of high black unemployment, especially among black youth.

Black Americans across America are beginning to wake up and see clearly the reality of what is happening in black neighborhoods. Democrats have run black communities for the past 60 years and the socialist policies of the Democrats have turned those communities into economic and social wastelands, witness Detroit, Baltimore and South Chicago.

We believe that Mr. Trump has demonstrated that he can push back against the mainstream media, end political correctness and free black communities from the destructive grip of socialist Democrats.

We urge our fellow black Americans to seize control over their own destiny and leverage their vote the way other groups do. It is way past time black Americans stop having their vote taken for granted by Democrats, hold politicians accountable for the content of their policies and not vote merely based on the label of their party.


The above supports what some in this thread are trying to tell you about the control that Democrats are perpetuating over blacks, and how this country needs Trump to fix the underlying causes of this.

I don't believe Trump is racist so much as he is a classist. But, I also think he is a fraud and is intentionally making it easy for democrats (and the media) to paint him and his supporters as racist.

But truth be told, I have a feeling MOST of his supporters would actually rather he NOT make it so easy. They cannot possibly enjoy playing another round of this racebaiting-to-win strategy after the last two presidential elections.

In what way has Trump "made it easy"? Do you have some examples? This has been the Democrat/media narrative for decades now.

If Donald Trump joked that Mahatma Gandhi used to run a gas station in St. Louis...would you call that racist?

I was under the impression that the poor in America has at least the safety net of social programs like food stamps and many others.In my country there's not half the help available.Things like cellphones from social welfare programmes are unheard of. The poor here live on maizemeal porridge in shacks in the settlements. Seems the ANC government was not serious about doing right by the black population that's their voter base.Maybe in about 100 years their voter base will realise this.But point is,the poor in America seems to have it rather cushy compared to the poor anywhere else.

Can someone tell us why Trump attacks the types like the KKK to support him?

What are the theories here?

Donald Trump’s big mouth begot bigotry.



Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric emboldens white supremacist groups, neo-Nazis spouting hate on the Internet

LINK



The 2016 Republican frontrunner’s decision to push divisive rhetoric and policy has opened the door for an array of white supremacy groups, that suddenly feel emboldened and legitimized by Trump’s hateful bombast, to rejoin the national conversation.




Following Trump’s latest foray into hate speech — his proposal to bar all Muslims from entering the U.S. — various Ku Klux Klan-aligned groups and figures have amped up their outreach efforts as part of an attempt to inject themselves back into the political conversation, after having been rightfully sidelined for years.




KING: WIN OR LOSE, TRUMP HAS ENERGIZED WHITE SUPREMACISTS




“Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that,” Don Black, a founder of Stormfront, a prominent white supremacist group, told Politico. “He’s certainly creating a movement that will continue independently of him even if he does fold at some point.”




“He has sparked an insurgency and I don’t think it’s going to go away,” Black said, adding that Trump’s words and actions have created such a dramatic increase in traffic to his website that he’s considering upgrading his servers.

First off, let me say that I am not a democrat and I have been very critical of the party in this thread.

But, I can give you an example that I NOTICED, all on my own, not via a narrative from democrats...

..On August 2, Trump stated the following:


"I think that he has set a very low bar, and I think it's a shame for the African-American people. And by the way, he has done nothing for African-Americans. You look at what's gone on with their income levels. You look at what's gone on with their youth. I thought that he would be a great cheerleader for this country. I thought he'd do a fabulous job for the African-American citizens of this country. He has done nothing. They are worse now than just about ever. ... They have problems now in terms of unemployment numbers. Look at their unemployment numbers. … Here you have a black president who's done very poorly for the African-Americans of this country."


Now, IMO, I think it's very reasonable to argue he meant to say "They are worse OFF now than just about ever."

But it was easy for democrats to seize on his unfortunate wording while his supporters were left having to explain, ONCE AGAIN, how democrats were taking his words out of context, yada yada yada.

When you have a long stream of examples like this -- and there has been -- then you have to wonder, at some point, why Trump's advisors aren't more focused on ending the 'myth' that Trump is racist. Instead, it seems the opposite is happening.

That's my take. This election is too important to convince me that it serves Trump or his supporters to feed into media & democrat racebaiting. They are kind of known for doing that.

Trump is being intentionally unfortunate in his words.
