Seriously? You're just regurgitating the same unnuanced point over and over again as if that will somehow discredit my argument by virtue of your lazy dismissal of it.

Do you really not think someone can do something that appears racist for entirely pragmatic reasons? Money is a way more compelling motivator than racism.

Being a racist - I hate blacks. They are lazy and inferior.
Doing a racist thing - I will keep out blacks to increase profits.
Supporting racism - Most of my tenants don't like blacks so I will keep them out.

Comfortable bedfellows IMO.

I did tell you that it was such an obvious and simple point that I didn't even think it was worth stating.

I think if you're ok with doing something racist, it means you're racist. Even if your motive in that moment is greed, the underlying thing letting you think it's ok is racism.

And your point is shallow, lazy, and stupid.

That's Sansa logic. The underlying thing may just be indifference, but don't let me get in the way of your self-righteous nonsense.

Again, what the hell are you talking about? How is this opinion self righteous?

I know you guys are in the middle of a tiff but I just wanted to come here and say I just got banned from r/the_donald on reddit for saying that he could order a pastrami sandwich and they'd champion him a hero.

Assuming racism and making premature accusations anytime you think you smell it is self-righteous.
