No I don't think he is. I think he is just a high functioning psychopath. I worked with one for several year and got to see what one is up close and personal. DJT has all the same characteristics.

phychopath:
Psychopaths look normal, and “appear” to react like everyone else. But such reactions are feigned or simulated to appear normal. Their actions however, actually have no emotional content behind them.

The majority of psychopaths are not serial killers. They may not be violent at all. There are many “white collar” psychopaths who use manipulation, deceit, and charm to perpetrate non-violent crimes like fraud and embezzlement. Some even rise so far in the workplace that, surrounded by loyal and steadfast friends who are in powerful places, they become untouchable.

Psychopathy is a disorder of the mind, where the person is able to function in society without any moral scruples, no guilt, no worries, no doubts about himself or herself, no reservations or self-reproach. In other words, no conscience. They have a chameleon quality that allows them to blend seamlessly into whatever setting they are in. The person with this disorder has no idea that there is anything wrong with them. What’s more, most people don’t notice anything wrong with them either.

Our last president was the bigger racist, he was half black...HALF....and should have used that fact to try to bring us closer together .
Instead he chose to let the wedge of divide drive itself deeper into our lives then it had been in a very long time.
The man was the first in history to be in that situation and he had the opportunity of a lifetime to bring OUR nation together, to be stronger and more prosperous than ever before and he chose to squander that very unique opportunity for his own personal interests.
That was his biggest failure.

Actual racism and the effects of historic racism exist.

However, many people now are calling virtually everything racism, hate speech, you name it.

I do think that Trump has probably had to much emphasis put on his 'racism' and though he has not helped himself by refusing to condemn hate groups and and his response to situations like Charlottesville I think this is more down to his narcissistic need to be loved by everyone. His racism is, as pointed out by other, more of a casualness that comes from a different generation.

I honestly don't believe trump is a true racist - he is equal in his tratment of people - everyone is 'the best people' whilst the pander and support, but the moment he takes any criticism, he will turn on you in an instant - no matter on who you are.

The problem is the highest office is the place where the standards set the tone and the mood of the nation, and the CIC should be the example that leads this - our leaders should be held to a higher standard.

There are way more concerning traits to Trump than the racism.

1) his misogyny
2) his xenophobia
3) his pathological need to lie
4) the narcissism
5) the paranoia

All in all, as another poster pointed all of these traits, along with the complete lack of empathy that has been displayed over and over does tend to define a high functioning psychopathy.

I've got no doubt racism exists.
My problem is with the people who claim they're not racist.

There is no definition for racism that exists that doesn't apply to everyone.

But even if we get the definition right and limit the accusations of racism to those who are hateful towards a group because of their genetics that still won't make any difference.

No one has the right to tell you who you can love, or who you can hate.

Actually there are definitions that don’t apply to everyone. Please check the dictionary for clarification.

Even the ‘social justice’ version currently being thrown around, ie that a person can’t be racist without institutional power, precludes many minority groups.

You can’t know whether everyone is racist or not. That’s a belief on your part, not a fact.

Unless you believe there is some kind of inherent tribalism or racism inherent in all people?

Without discussing the rest, isn’t it untrue that he hasn’t disavowed hate groups? That was claimed after Charlottesville, yet he did disavow. It’s important that allegations are factual. Otherwise it’s slanderous.

I'll go first.

No I don't think he is and I am not white, and I'm not a man.

I'm not going to just go by my feeling and opinions, I think it is important to look at actions:

The black unemployment rate has fallen below 6 percent for the first time
www.vox.com...

Trump administration backs Asian Americans suing Harvard over its affirmative action admissions policy
www.latimes.com...

Even if he's called a racist, Trump makes life better for black Americans
www.njherald.com...

"Trump believes in being tough on crime, but he is not enthralled by mass incarceration in which thousands, many of them black, are subjected to cruel conditions leading to recidivism. He promoted a bill that would improve all sorts of flaws in the system, prepare prisoners for a fruitful life when released and let 4,000 go, many of them ill and old. The bill passed the House 380 to 59 but the Senate has wanted sentencing reform, too, and guess what? Trump has said OK."

Defying pundits, GOP share of Latino vote steady under Trump
www.nbcnews.com...

There are many more examples if people want to look for them.
Trump was once quoted as saying that Haiti is a #hole. I don't think that is racist to say that. Haiti could be filled with green people, it would still be a #hole!

Of course he isn't...Any honest person would admit that...

Trump has donated to all of the top black personalities in the past...Al Sharpton, MLK, Jesse Jackson...He's received many awards from black organizations...And there's a whole host of black preachers who publicly support him...

Are we not a tribal species?
Look at the Sentinelese people, having avoided western culture successfully they still are cautious of people who look different and arrow them to death.

Surprisingly everyone seems to support this hate crime.
I'm not saying I'm not a hypocrite, I also support this.

But you can prove that everyone is racist, there's a reaction in the amygdala which is directly connected to racism.

Being wary of people not in your tribe isn't strictly a human thing either, it's probably more of a mammal thing and expecting millions of years of evolution to be turned on it's head because we're uncomfortable with the answers isn't helpful.

It's impossible to address racism if we refuse to see it in ourselves.

Sorry, didn't really address this.
Firstly I've gotta dismiss the SJW version, I disagree with it entirely. My favourite explanation of it is from Paul Mooney (the only thing he says that makes me cringe) but it's too flawed to give any real credit.

As for dictionary definitions do you believe that the Nepalese sherpa's are better mountain climbers?
If you do (which you should) then you believe in racial superiority.

If it's got to be related personally to your own race then all you have to do is put your family first.
