You know Trump's personality: would he really hire anyone like that if he harbored deep seated, hate-driven racism? You guys can't tell me on one side that he's shallow, motivated only by money, etc. and then try to make him to be some complex, multi-faceted racist on the other hand. It doesn't add up.

2. If you were African-American and your employer was the kind of racist that others are "attempting" to argue that Trump is, you would have never been hired in the first place. I guarantee it.

Also, I hate The Huffington Post, but hey if I can use a liberal article written by an extreme liberal writer to illustrate a point then you can bet your bottom dollar I will. :)

No, Donald Trump Isn't a Racist | The Huffington Post

Still holds water a year later. Give me a call when you can do better than the guy who wrote that opinion piece. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

To quote that HuffPost article I mentioned earlier: being prejudiced and being racist are different things. Maybe I should have been differentiating that terminology too since it seems to have created confusion.

This doesn't just happen out of the blue. You have to have done something in your life in order to call those types of opinions toward yourself (Talking about Trump, not you specifically). I'm shocked that you're still willing to defend Trump as not being a racist, when if you were to ask anyone with a brain, they'd say otherwise. The proof is pretty clear, but for whatever reason, you choose to ignore it.

Also, quoting HuffPost is a bad move since apparently they're extremely biased.

Is Donald Trump a Racist? Here's What His Record Shows | Fortune.com

Quote:

In 1989, he told Bryant Gumbel in an interview, “A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market...if I was starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I really do believe they have the actual advantage today. “ In fact, all the serious studies refuted that. However his statement did serve as a kind of shout-out to those who were ignorant about the racial dynamics in the U.S. economy.
Quote:

Next in the Trump record on race came a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, who had been president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. O’Donnell quoted Trump saying,“ Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes… Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else…Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that’s guy’s lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks.”
Again, don't be obtuse.

The Huffington Post is an extremely liberal outlet. I was making a point by posting an article where even numbnuts like them understand the difference that I'm discussing. You guys aren't using the term "racist" properly but chose to ignore my core argument.

Well, I think I've beat this dead horse enough. Nobody acknowledged the argument being made (too "obtuse" lol), so let's talk about Flynn I guess.

The point was evidently lost due to your constant defense of Trump's supposed lack of racism. It's pretty clear that you won't agree that he is a racist, when 99% of the people in this country will disagree with you. It's not hard to understand.

I never said he wasn't racist. He has a lot of subtle prejudices and it shows in the way he speaks. I said racism wasn't his core message or a driving force behind why he does what he does, and I've already proven that point in previous illustrations.
