Racism in America is a sensitive issue for politicians especially among U.S. presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The question you need to ask yourself is Hillary Clinton a true champion of the African-American community?
In fact, there are past words and actions that prove the Clinton’s policies have been destructive for the African American community. It is a fact that William J. Clinton’s Crime Bill and Welfare Reform devastated African Americans and to an extent the Latino Community, both policies were fully supported by Hillary Clinton.
It was the Clinton crime bill that has incarcerated African Americans at unprecedented levels.
According to Michelle Alexander, a human rights advocate, legal scholar and author of ‘The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness’, says the Clintons decimated Black America.
Is Hillary Clinton a friend of the African American community? Is she a “closet racist”? Not sure. But one thing is clear; Hillary and Bill Clinton both have a long history of supporting policies and certain politicians that have been more harmful to the African American community than one might think.

I don't think that is the whole of the meaning when Trump says it, but he knows what a certain segment of the population that like him will hear.
When Clinton said it, I don't think he was trying to reach that particular demographic . Just a hunch. Clinton said it once and he probably didn't even write the ad. It is Trump's slogan.

First you state Trump said, "he knew a cop that could get rid of the BLACK problem in Chicago real fast?"
Then when asked for a link to an actual citation you stated Trump said, "he talked to a cop who told him he knew how to solve the CHICAGO problem in 10 days and he thought that was great."
So which is it?
Did Trump say there was a black problem in Chicago or that Chicago itself has a problem?
Did you insert "Black" into the quote to make Trump appear racist?
If Trump really stated that I will concede.

But Clinton's right. "Make America Great Again" really means "Make America White Again".
In other words, "let's get all these 'n-word's and wet-backs outta here".
That's what Trump wants...
Trouble is, the Brown People were here first anyway; something Trump doesn't want to admit to as The Truth.
Wow, really? I hadn't thought that "Great" meant "White".
I guess we should all be more careful with the English language. It's more complex now that the meaning of a word depends on who says it.
Another dumb reply. It should be obvious by now that Trump wants 'White America', or have you been hiding in a hole?

He actually called it the crime problem in Chicago. My mistake, as the crime problem in Chicago is obviously known by all as the "white problem". We've got to control those whites, as they are committing way too much crime in inner city Chicago. That's obviously what Trump was talking about.
And it was in a week, not 10 days.
