That's a question for people who try to employ this "logic" in their argument to make European settlers out to be utter jackasses.
I disagree with many of their tactics, but war and tribal takeovers and usurping of nations existed on North America long before ol' whitey came around.

so let me get this straight. some jacka#@ in TN makes a racist billboard. Then, the lemmings come out and blame Trump?
sure this makes sense
"For these reasons we are confident that a widespread and creative billboard advertising game plan could go a long way toward making the Rick Tyler For Congress candidacy both viable and a force to be reckoned with. Clearly we are in uncharted waters, in that there has never been a candidacy like this in modern political history. Of great significance, as well, is the reality of the Trump phenomenon and the manner in which he has loosened up the overall spectrum of political discourse."
Of course there is.

The sign is gone now.
So this furore is a little over zealous.
Doesn't matter. It's been said. The sad part is that many still hold this belief but don't put it out there because, well, they can't.
Nevertheless, hopefully he won't become a Congressman.
This backward way of thinking needs to be shunned from the highest levels to the lowest.
It will be telling if he is. Is there such a thing as "institutional racism"?

Hate can be sneaky like that. Sometimes it's subtle. Sometimes it's overt -- like this case.
Whatever the case may be, this kind of hatred towards others who are different (fill in the blank here) has always been around, which is a pity. It is such a shame that racism and xenophobia is alive and kickin' in this day and age.
You come off as one hell of an insensitive, condescending, disrespectful individual. I don't know where you get your news but black people don't give a damn about Al Sharpton or Jackass Jackson. You just received the memo and speak on things you are sure of. And you know DAMN well that O is NOT viewed as a "Biracial" president. He's considered to be BLACK just like my daughters whom I share with my WHITE wife. Be real about this.

There is a mixed race president in the White House. Shut up with the racism talk.
You are all creating racism. There is no 60's racism today. There is no modern day racism except maybe for the fact no one can say anything that could be considered racist, not even defined racist.
Bigots? Rev Al comes to mind. You know, the one who hates anyone who is not black and does not give him money. This is a bigot. Donald Trump has not made ONE racist remark. Racism is putting your race above others. HE HAS NEVER SAID NOT IMPLIED THIS. He pointed out criminals from Mexico.
This is what is wrong with our country.
Me - Hey you see that guy over there?
Lefty McLeft - where?
Me - The guy in the red shirt
Lefty McLeft - who..point him out
Me - The guy at the end of the bar next to the pretty girl
Lefty McLeft - I don't see who you are pointing out..
Me - He is wearing a baseball
Lefty McLeft - Still do not see him
Me - You do not see the black guy?
Lefty McLeft - bigot...do you also hate gays?
That is it in the nutshell.
My kids are raised color blind. They are raised to respect and learn all religions. They are raised not to look for differences but what they can learn from others. If more people did that, you would not have racism.
You just coined a new phrase! We heard it here first, folks! Cheers

I think what this boils down to is "backdoor racism". Maybe I coined a phase there. You can float something that appeals to a segment of society that really can't put it out there. It can be retracted but the message is sent. Kinda like the courtroom tactic.
