Hillary supporting Trump's general Mexico premise (although I dont find her statements to be racist, her supporters would if Trump said it):
"First family that comes and says 'I want to send my daughter to St. Peter's Roman Catholic School' and you say 'Great, wonderful school, here's your voucher,'" Mrs. Clinton said, according to the Long Island newspaper. "Next parent that comes and says, 'I want to send my child to the school of the Church of the White Supremacist ...' The parent says, 'The way that I read Genesis, Cain was marked, therefore I believe in white supremacy. ...You gave it to a Catholic parent, you gave it to a Jewish parent, under the Constitution, you can't discriminate against me.'" The senator added, "So what if the next parent comes and says, 'I want to send my child to the School of the Jihad?' ... I won't stand for it."

Following that logic, EVERYBODY is from Africa.
No, 'following that logic' 100% of African Americans trace their recent lineage to the continent of Africa. If you call Jamaicans African Americans that's on you.

Same with Hillary clinton, can you deny that? Also, what is the point. Calling people racist because other known racists support the same candidate is very childish. Time to grow the hell up.
LOL ... grow up? Why don't you try to argue the facts rather than like a school child?
Yes, I can deny that with the exception of one random California KKK person, who was probably hoping for their 15 minutes of fame with a sound byte, I can deny that White Supremacists and Klan Members endorse Hillary Clinton.
I haven't called anyone "racist" ... again try dealing with facts rather than your pat argument.

Trump is correct in his assertion. We have never been able to have a serious objective discourse about illegal immigration because the "racism" charge always gets raised. So any discussion of the subject, which is largely related to economics and jobs, and not racism, gets buried, and the cheap labor pipeline stays open. If you want to shut someone up about illegal immigration, call them a racist. Its an effective tactic, but I dont think its working anymore.
Human capital, like “human resources” is a term which expresses the conception of a human being as an economic category.
Thus for example, when a capitalist has a number of talented people on his pay-roll, he is said to have “human capital”. Human capital is here distinguished from the labour power which is purchased week-by-week at its value, because the assemblage of “good people” requires more than just paying the market price: a good working environment, good management and the build-up of a company ethos. These qualities of a capitalist firm add value to the capital over and above the value of material resources and intellectual property.
Workers often argue that, on the basis of this accumulation of “human capital”, their employer should pay more, provide better working conditions and better job security. However, the casting of workers as components of capital is an extremely alienating thing to do. Workers meet social needs by means of their cooperation and organisation as well as by their labour activity. The fact that capital is able to co-opt the value of this collaboration should be challenged rather than simply paid for at its value.
“Human resources” is a notion of the same kind, the word first entering the language in 1972. To the capitalist, employees are resources just like buildings, materials and cash, and are “managed” with the same mentality. “Natural resources” likewise reduce Nature to a category of economics, where costs are externalised and wealth obtained for free.

Yep, human capital... good term. The reservation communities continue to believe in democratic policies which is sad. Our communities are nothing but drug-plagued, poorer-than-ever places where our people do nothing but cry about why the government is cutting this or that funding and not giving more. Only Rez communities thriving now are those blessed with casinos near large population centers, otherwise, a casino doesn't do nothing but make the tribal leaders rich while the rest of the Rez people suffer in dire poverty and massive amounts of drugs like prescription pills, heroin and meth.
Over the Obama years these communities have sunk to all-time lows and yet, my people still look to democrats to solve their problems... by giving more handouts rather than look to community investment to improve economic development. Any funds tribes do have is totally mismanaged and the trend just continues. I can't even imagine how bad it will be if Hillary is elected. She truly doesn't care about minorities, only the votes they will deliver. She only cares about who can dish her the most cash and inner cities or rural reservations certainly don't have any of that.
