It's not a bad word. Most people are proud to be one since it keeps them focused on where they belong or don't belong in life. It even saves lives to know you are a racist, or either hate racists, and stay far away from the opposite side.

Some people have a positive destiny !!! Then there are the racist democrats !!!

As long as we rightfully tag racist to democrats they will come around and want it buried too !!!
It may take some time, many aren't very smart, but eventually they will figure it out !!!

Every democrat by association with the democrat party is a bigot having taken ownership of the clown "squads" positions and statements !!! According to their own rules and the voices from the collective !!!
Racist Pelosi, racist Schumer, racist Nadler, racist Schiff, etc.....

They will want to be at the funeral and put it on the docket as quickly as possible !!!
If they are smart, but there is no guarantee on that !!!

Yes, racism exists. Is it as prevalent and as much of a problem as it's made out to be, no.

How bout we replace it with 'Republican' as this party is now officially the party of the white supremacist. We can call it the r word since speaking it aloud would be shameful.

Time to bury the word, "racist".


I agree that the word is over-used, but I should point out that racism is very real and still a very persistent problem.

Oh, the irony of white people saying the word racist is overused. (And, yes, I am white and, yes, I know people can be racist toward a white person)

In a way, I might actually agree with the OP to a certain extent that the word is overused. I honestly do not know of Trump is racist. I have my suspicions based solely on his own words and actions. But calling him racist does not do much to the conversation. Some people close their ears and eyes and storm around the room claiming he's not racist because his daughter married a Jewish man or because he has had a lot of African-American associates. That's like saying former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker can't be racist because he played with a lot of black baseball players. That argument does not hold up to the strong light of logic and common sense.

What Trump said about the four Congresswomen was really patently stupid and in my opinion unAmerican. You don't call out people's [patriotism just because you disagree with them. You don't say "love it or leave it" unless you're stupid and cannot think past a fourth grade level. And you don't stand back and soak in people chanting "send her back" for 13 seconds unless you agree with the sentiment.

By Trump's own logic, he should have left the country when Obama was president and Trump kept putting the country down.

Trump -- If you don't love our country, you can go back to where you came from.

Also Trump -- If you don't love YOUR country, you just stay there and make it better.

The democratic party today headed by, "the squad", should be the ones to introduce this to the public and lead the funeral for the dead word. The tombs will be next to each other..ni**er and racist. I think it was Sharpton who suggested we bury ni**ger. Any language denograding a race should stop. So today we are executing the favorite word of the liberal party. Rest in peace.
Of course conservatives would love to get rid of this word.. it’s in their best interest.

I think President Trump was comunicating to the liberals at their own level. This is exactly why you find his language as unAmerican and below 4th grade level. He is trying to communicate to them at though he was one of them. So they can understand and see themselves in the mirror. Maybe they will learn after a taste of their own medicine. He could have just as easily said........"I am rubber and your glue whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to your ass." Of course they would have in chorus with the media screamed...."Racist". But he didn't and went the dignified Presidential route and held himself back. How come this squad has no white or male congress members in their pack? Could it be they are bigots and racists?
