I hear this a lot. If you want to post please back it up with what he has done that is racist. I understand he is rough around the edges and says off the wall things. That doesn't mean he's racist. Just looking for policy he started that would be considered racist. I thought that the Criminal justice reform helped minorities. Give examples of both sides if you want. Thanks

He did tell an American citizen of color to go back to their country. A pretty racist thing to say.
"Normal" people don't talk about wanting to have sex with their own daughter, or maybe you just hang around some less-than-normal locker rooms.
He's been sued many times regarding discriminatory rental practices.
He took out a full page ad supporting the death penalty for the "Central Park Five" ("coincidentally", 5 black men), and didn't retract or apologize to them after DNA evidence acquitted them.
When Neo-Nazis marched through the streets of Charlottesville chanting "Blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us" he said there were "fine people on both sides".
He initially pretended like he didn't know who David Duke was, when Duke endorsed him, even though he was already on record before that commenting about Duke much earlier.
Do racist tendencies make one a racist?
The same people who denounce Trump for being a racist hypocritically oppose Trump's plan for better school options for black children. I have heard many liberal commentators compare Trump to George Wallace, the late Alabama governor who defended school segregation and stood in front of the white public schools with armed guards to keep the black children out.
Now we have liberals and teachers unions figuratively standing in front of the high-quality white private schools like modern-day George Wallaces trying to keep black children out.
Trump also wants more infrastructure spending, more energy jobs and more apprenticeship programs so our youth have access to better jobs and better training. Disproportionately, blacks and other minorities will benefit from these programs, because fewer have the financial capability to go to a four-year college.
So is Trump a racist who doesn't care about the future of black Americans? Let's face it. He's no Jack Kemp when it comes to talking about race and healing wounds with his words. But Trump is creating more jobs and higher incomes for blacks and other minorities and is trying to give a better education to every disadvantaged black child in America. That is a pretty impressive civil rights record.
