Hey come on now, we can't determine if you're being racist there unless we check your gender, pigmentation and voting history. (Oh...and who\what your preferred sexual partner is. )

I Taiwan we confused why White Democrats persons angry at Trump for saying Truth?!?
Liberal Democrats in the United States think it is insensitive to say anything negative about black or brown people, no matter how bad the situation is in some of these communities.

They will shut you down and call you a racist if you speak the truth. The problem is that we cannot tolerate this any longer.

An oligarch like Cummings doesn't give a crap, as he is the "enlightened" leader (a one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind.........) and his constituents are just little people. He is an embarrassment to Congress.
And, somehow, whatever Cummings does or doesn't do or say that agrees with Trump or not means it's okay for Trump to insult the ENTIRE CITY of Baltimore?

I don't care if him and Cummings want to debate one another all day long.

What Trump said about the city of Baltimore and, by extension, its residents?

Not cool.

Also, isn't it more telling how white folk associate "rat infested" areas and assume it's about black people?
83% of the population of West Baltimore is black. Over 68% of the population of the entire city is black.

Do you really need someone to draw you a map on this one?

Sure they did. It was in reference to Mexicans.

Try getting it from the original sources.

Well, you live there and you're free to call it whatever you like, but a US President you did NOT like calling your city a dump would not please you.

Be honest with yourself.

It's this logic that I don't understand from people. Trump can condemn a brand of cereal and people will suddenly act like it's the best cereal ever and start buying it like crazy just because Trump condemned it.
I'm actually not a fan of Baltimore. I just think it wasn't very civil or becoming of a President to refer to a large city in the USA as a dump.

That hypocritical Democrat double standard is beyond belief.
It's not odd for people with money to go to 5-star restaurants. I doubt they found it all that fancy or unusual to be dining there.

There's no way this has anything to do with the topic at hand.
