He hardly mentions it, while his adversaries are obsessed with ‘whiteness’ and ‘white privilege.’

Some of the candidates literally had to fire many of their white staffers.

Why?

Because they're white!!! THAT is the definition of racism and illegal in the private sector!

Several of them came out and begged forgiveness for their white skin! LIKE WTF?



The Diversity Delusion is a sickness.

Glad to see some waking up.

Honestly for all this "racial divide" I just don't see it around me.
No one is calling me a racist or supremacist.
Folks of all walks of life being nice, chatting, holding doors, etc.

But to watch the MSM or listen to our politicians you'd think we're at each other's throats all over America and on the verge of a Civil War and only they can help us.

I see more exhibits of racism coming from our own government.

Someone else's crappy life is not my fault and I will NOT feel guilty for any of it.

I do agree with something....in a sense. The one thing I have learned about "black leaders" is that they are not really all that much for black people if the average white person likes them when they are alive. The way it has been (might not be as much that way today...but its still true) is that if the average white person did not like a black leader.....THEN I SHOULD. If white people really like you, as a black leader, your pretty much are not doing things for black people.



In the same way......Trump has said some things sure enough, however, what might really be pulling whites to his camp is the contempt that the left has for him and how he is seen as a racist by the left. If the average person on the left thought Trump was ok.....he would probably would not really be doing things that the right really wants. If blacks thought Trump was ok.....racist would likely not be as attracted to Trump because blacks think he is ok. A great appeal of Trump, to many, may simply be that people think he is racist. I mean, what has trump really done for white males that would make them rally behind him so much? It might be that they feel he is doing something AGAINST "people of color" (I hate using that phrase).....given that they dislike him so much.

Trump and the GOP have never done anything specifically for whites. That's not the GOP philosophy to do things specifically just for the white populace, instead to treat the populace as one. They have just not insulted and scapegoated white as much as Democrats. Also they have done more things we find agreeable and less that we don't in general.

Folks like to blame the President of the USA -- not just Trump -- but Obama, Bush, etc. for racism

But it's most of you ordinary folks who are the racists.

You do it all by yourselves.
