The fact thst his supporters went after Levar Burton as opposed to Lavar Ball speaks volumes to their intellect.

How dare they not thank me for doing my job as POTUS (it's like a firefighter asking ppl for gratitude after putting out a fire and being a little b**ch when he doesnt get one).

Steve Kerr, Greg Popovich, and many others even in NFL - but white - said bad things about him and no attacks.

To racists in the South, black people should be especially grateful they are given equal access to opportunities only because they haven't had them for hundreds of years.

I'm a white European who came to the U.S few years ago and it amazes me how hateful rednecks are. They get offended by a black player peacefully kneeling to the anthem, but are ok with traitors collaborating with Russia (see the poll where 80% trump supporters say they are fine with collusion with Russia as long as trump stays in power).

The ugly reality is that tRump and his followers believe that black college athletes belong in a Chinese jail for 10 years if they're caught shoplifting. They think that black athletes silently and peacefully protesting are SOBs and should be released.

On the other hand, they're convinced that a psychotic old white child molester should be elected to the US senate.

They're animated by fear, resentment, ignorance and racism.

The dad did not and denigrated Trump. I don’t care much for Trump wasting time on this but he’s in the right.

I’m not surprised some blacks are supporting the dad the culture has deteriorated significantly.

That’s Chinese law. One doesn’t steal from their hosts, shows a lack of upbringing. Just because the West is soft on crime doesn’t mean everyone else has to be. Trump should not have gotten involved there are low level diplomats that can handle it

You seem to have a problem with folks from the South. Perhaps you should seek counciling .

The sense that black people should be extra grateful for their success or talents is the most infuriating thing.

Have you ever noticed how people like you falsely play the race card instead of discussing policy?

Have you ever noticed how people like you falsely say the south, an entire region, is racist, instead of discussing policy?

How about you take you bigoted statements about Americans and go back to Europe?

Talking about bigotry and grouping an entire region as racist, sleazy absolutely sleazy.

Actually............the most infuriating thing is the undiluted hatred evident in this thread. And it ain't the fairy tale hatred that was vomited all over the screen by the OP.
