The Only Colour Donald Trump Cares About
This post contains a simple thesis, therefore I will not belabour the point by going on for 12 pages like I did in my last post. We’ve heard Donald J. Trump be accused of racism, of sexism, of mocking disabled people, of just being generally, well, vile in his descriptions of ideas, and we’ve heard him make comments that sound suspiciously fascist. But is that really who Trump is?
Many agree that Trump is racist and for good reason. He’s said some things that are prejudiced, ignorant, and hate-filled. Like these below.
He’s also been documented for doing his darnedest to avoid renting to blacks at his properties in the past and also especially labeling his potential employees by “race.”
Blacks were repeatedly dispatched as testers to Trump apartment buildings to inquire about vacancies, and white testers were sent soon after. Repeatedly, the black person was told that nothing was available, while the white tester was shown apartments for immediate rental.
A former building superintendent working for the Trumps explained that he was told to code any application by a black person with the letter C, for colored, apparently so the office would know to reject it. A Trump rental agent said the Trumps wanted to rent only to “Jews and executives,” and discouraged renting to blacks.
Donald Trump furiously fought the civil rights suit in the courts and the media, but the Trumps eventually settled on terms that were widely regarded as a victory for the government. Three years later, the government sued the Trumps again, for continuing to discriminate. (NY Times)
And the racism doesn’t stop there since the NY Times goes on to say:
As Trump moved into casinos, discrimination followed. In the 1980s, according to a former Trump casino worker, Kip Brown, who was quoted by The New Yorker: “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor. … They put us all in the back.”
In 1991, a book by John O’Donnell, who had been president of the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump as criticizing a black accountant and saying: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” O’Donnell wrote that for months afterward, Trump pressed him to fire the black accountant, until the man resigned of his own accord.
Trump eventually denied making those comments. But in 1997 in a Playboy interview, he conceded “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”
But then he does stuff like hire a black woman on the spot.
Now what I would point out about this specific scenario is that:
She’s in shape.
She didn’t express any dislike to Trump’s person or his campaign.
This begs the following questions:
Did he hire her for show?
Is she a token?
Did he hire her because of her looks?
Is it a combination of the above reasons?
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
And as for The Apprentice alum, Omarosa, well, I think we can safely put her in the “happy house n*gger” category in terms of mentality. That term is offensive and it should be. Because this particular type of house slave happily sells out their own to get ahead. Omarosa panders to the party [person] that will promote her. At least she has that in common with Trump. You can hear Omarosa express her “nice nasty” sentiments below.
Is Trump racist? You decide.
Sexist (Incestuous?) Trump
There can be NO disputing of the ultra-sexist comments Trump thrives on making...about everything in a skirt.
The man has even made disgustingly sexual comments about his own daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany.
But, of course, he sees nothing wrong with his comments. Because, you know, he’s never done anything worth asking forgiveness for.
Is Trump sexist? You decide.
This one just breaks my heart. I just...I can’t event. It’s lower than low.
Mocking someone’s disability takes a special kind of godlessness.
Is Trump heartless? You decide.
This one hits a little too close to home for me since I have the privilege of being - albeit loosely - acquainted with the lovely Marshawn Evans-Daniels. She, along with five other Apprentice contestants, decided to come out and publicly speak against Trump and his many problematic stances and boy, did they get a response!
Not only did Trump tell these contestants to be careful in his official response to them, but so did gun-toting Trump supporters. That is highly disturbing. You know who makes threats like that? Fascists. Tyrants. Dictators. Dangerous men and women calculating their anticipated rise to power. And when they get to power - if they haven’t scared their opposition into silence - they carry out their threats one way or another. Don’t believe me? Look up Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Franco, and other tyrants down through the ages. This is NOT the behaviour of an American president and the leader of the Free World.
And if that weren’t enough, Trump attacks the very accomplishments that made these individuals desirable to the casting directors of his show, The Apprentice in the first place! Talk about backward.
Oh, and want a quick breakdown on fascism? Here you go. You’re welcome.
Is Trump a fascist? (Or a tyrant? Or a dictator?) You decide.
While it obviously takes a great brain to build and maintain an empire and have at least three out of four adult children who are solid and well-adjusted, that doesn’t mean that same person is suited to the presidency of the United States. I mean, we’ve all seen the genius with an off-the-charts IQ who simultaneously can barely tie their shoes or speak to another human being. And if we haven’t met them, we’ve at least seen them in movies.
Allow me to first say I am NOT calling Donald Trump a genius. (Obviously.) I give honour where honour is due for his economic savvy that our nation could admittedly benefit from. HOWEVER, this does not mean this man has any common sense. Or the type of diplomacy that is necessary to govern a nation such as ours. Especially when he says things like this.
(And by the way, if someone shows up at your presidential campaign event wearing a “KKK Endorses [insert your last name/last name of your candidate]” this would NOT be the time to start chanting “USA! USA! USA!” As if the USA and the KKK are synonymous!!!
And here we have more ignorance. **warning: language**
And more ignorance.
And yes, even more ignorance.
Is Trump ignorant? You decide.
My Summation: GREEN
Trump may be and is a lot of things, yet I think the number one thing he is is green. Not green with naivete or with envy, but rather with greed and avarice. He sees green. He chases green. He doesn’t care who you are, what colour you are, what you look like, what you say, what you do, or how you do it so long as what you say, do, look like, etc. lines his pockets with more green.
That’s why he can deny renting to blacks, while posing with Rosa Parks.
That’s why he can give Omarosa her 15 minutes of fame whilst defaming Marshawn Evans-Daniels.
And that’s why he can run as the Republican front-runner whilst being a Progressive AND (in my opinion) being somehow in cahoots with Hillary.
And I ain’t the only one who thinks The Donald and the Clintons are in bed together.
So you tell me: what’s your summation of Donald Trump?
I am no Hillary fan. Make no mistake. Not supporting one doesn’t mean you automatically support the other. I’ll write about this soon enough.
