You want evidence that Trump dropped the "N" word? You need evidence? Like, black and white? You know, racism usually isn't overt. It isn't something someone just does and thats it. I mean, yeah, that happens from disgusting people. But most racism is covert. It is implemented and spoken about in a subtle way. I mean, "Grab her by the *****" is pretty overtly sexist, however, I guess that is ok cause it's "locker room" talk. However, people just don't say, "Put the blacks in chains" anymore. It's up to you to be able to ascertain whether someone on is being covertly racist. I specifically say you, because anyone can justify anything. It's easy to say as a white guy (and I am a white guy so it's easy to say for me) that something isn't racist. It's another thing to be a black guy and hear it and thing, wtf?
I know I won't be able to get you to think in those terms. It's easier to make things black and white (see what I did there?). Life isn't that simple or that easy. I don't think you are a racist or a bad guy. I do think you are ignorant on the concept, but maybe not even that it's your fault. Or maybe you attend Klan rallies...I guess I don't know at all
I understand your point, and I applaud it, as you are correct that it is one thing to say a racist thing, one may not see it as racist, and yet another can see it as racist. Hence, it's offensive. I get it.
At the same time, two things:
1) People are PULLING the race/sex/homophobe cards often without real cause. I get it too, from all bloody "races", people HATE to assume responsibility for their own actions. They USE it to get their way, much like a false rape victim uses it to get his or hers - I can't stand it!
2) YES I want evidence. "Racism usually isn't overt" of course it isn't, and that's what I hate about it. But RACIST is a title that should not be flung around without PROOF. You know what's the problem with people crying RAPIST? REAL VICTIMS DO NOT GET JUSTICE!!! So what does that lead to? Vigilantes, and it goes on and on. I have studied colonial racialism, its roots - even before racialism was a 'science', the pattern of European cultural development, its history, the genocides and discrimination racialism has caused after the dwindling power of the Church and I know how deep underground it can be but this is NOT the way to solve it.
Flinging racist, sexist, homophobic and whatever else the social justice warriors like to label people without proof and getting a lynch mob for no real reason? All I can say is WTF folks?! Both extremes are coming out now, left, right, what the fk?! And it's not Trump or Bannon to blame it's the fking media! Why is it SO hard to find proof to solidify the claims of Trump or Bannon being racist supremists? Why?!
