They're legally responsible--obviously, as that was the reason that Trump and his father wound up being sued, but that doesn't make it the case that Trump issued a policy not to rent to blacks merely because they have negative traits in his view due to being black, which is what's required for him to be racist, rather than people working for his company, assuming in the first place that the allegation was even true.

I mean I have the footage of him saying it and signing the policy, but I only have a partial fingerprint on the pen that was used so I guess we can't ever know for sure.

If you do, then I'd say he's racist. But I'd need to see it.

It's scary to think that some of you could be jurors.

I would call doubt in this instance naive, not reasonable.

Which just underscores "It's scary to think that some of you could be jurors. "

It's funny that you think that using context is scary.

It's funny that you think that "An employee could have been doing this, but we'll never know for sure" is sufficient context to say that a company owner is guilty of the same.

How does one employee commit acts across a large company like that?

it doesn't have to be just one employee, but it could be. One employee could have given the impression that it was to be the company's policy, where the rest of folks believed they were following orders. That also could have occurred via a telephone game screw-up--a verbal comment got distorted as it was passed along.

And again, this is assuming that it even happened.
