President Trump calling the situation in Baltimore for what it is, is not racist. If you think it is then Mr Cummings is racist for saying the same comments about the city...if you don't follow this logic then you are a hypocrite.
Why do you agree with him ?

ETA: Nevermind. I just read your answer to the above at the end of post #1417.

Translation of your answer at the end of post #1417: 'I don't like it when someone criticizes my hero reacting like a toddler, so I'm going to support what my hero said, even though he's acting like a toddler'.

We usta call stupid stuff, "stupid"... and who hasn't done or said something that they would want back or classify as stupid?

Bueller? Bueller?

Again, when you can't argue the facts, you demonize your opponent and make them morally reprehensible. Also it's important to look like Bernie Sanders when he's constipated... you know.

No its because Trump fails at the most fundamental level of human decency. If he has any constructive criticism of a man he will impugn over a half million people to make his point. So yes he is a white boy who has never walked a mile in the shoes of a black man in urban America but he thinks he knows all about them.

Many of those items are clearly paraphrases. As far as remarks targeting minorities and violence it is high time that the minority community took responsibility for the actions of a disproportionate number of incidents rather than screaming "racism" at every turn. For example:

He did not try to stop or mend the divide he created with his abhorrent tweets and language and innuendos. Rather, he kept at it to reveal that he is using an even more blunt and overt racism as a campaign strategy than he utilized in 2016.

Currently he is involved in a direct and ongoing attack on another respected congressman of color, Rep. Elijah Cummings. He is deliberately attacking and wounding an American city and its myriad black citizens (Cummings' constituents) with racially charged words and ugly phrasing. Belittling, defaming and criticizing Americans and their homes with words and phrasing such as "rats and infestation and vermin" is disgusting and the President of the United States of America is revealing his unabashed racism. Yes he is using Baltimore and it is about the colors brown and black. ....He often casts heavily black American cities as war zones. In a 2016 debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump said, “Our inner cities, African Americans, Hispanics are living in hell because it’s so dangerous. You walk down the street, you get shot.” Trump also said to black voters: “You’re living in poverty; your schools are no good; you have no jobs.”
Lots of government money has gone down the rathole in Baltimore and other benighted cities, and has not improved conditions measurably.

While it is true that those five teens did not commit that rape I doubt that these people were choirboys. They likely had a sizable "rap sheet" or else they would have taken the witness stand and their denials would have been quite convincing. They were likely in quite a bit of trouble before. My wife sat on a grand jury (I think) and the consensus among the jurors was that the urban defendants may not have committed the crime in question but likely committed others. The jury voted to indict and/or convict.

Maybe an overstatement, but there is no question in my mind that groups that are over-represented in seditious activity need to be monitored more closely than others. We should not be turning a trip to an office building or airport into a major project out of a misguided attempt not to profile.

There is no question that we don't need too many immigrants from countries whose people have few relevant skills in First World countries. They will be helpless in this country. That's the G-d's honest truth. Without major subsidies they would starve, even here.[quote=corpgypsy;55827791]He frequently criticizes prominent African-Americans for being unpatriotic, ungrateful and disrespectful. Citizens whose U.S. roots go back deeper and longer than his very own at times. He has tweeted such, as well as calling them minorities that are uppity and ungrateful.[/qutoe]Most minorities do better here than in their ancestor's or their own native lands. There is only a limited amount of gratitude for that.

Can someone in Puerto Rico explain where aid for the hurricane relief has gone?

I agree. These statements were uncalled for. Also this:

Disgusting but did little to help his rise.
