NeoNote — Trump racist or Democrat legacy?

All right. We'll start with basics. The game is not what you think it is.

You've been calling Trump racist.

What has he done that is racist? I mean Trump, not those wannabe loser alt-right types who keep hitching their stars to his in some hope that they can be relevant.

Citing pro sport athletes isn't going to convince me of anything. I don't follow them. In Kaepernick's case, if I were an executive, I would have fired him for getting political on the job. He wasn't being paid to be political. What he does on his own time is up to him, but company time is company time. And when it starts to interfere with company revenue, yeah, that's a reason to sack him.

Excuse me?

All that some progressives do is protest. It wasn't conservatives who started saying "The personal is political." The conservatives I know have no problem with making political statements, they encourage it. But not on somebody else's dime.

Kaepernick wasn't just protesting on the job, he was stealing broadcast time to do it.

And by the way, this all happened long before Trump ran for office.

Except he didn't say "black guy."

Trump criticizes everyone he doesn't agree with. He doesn't let skin color get in the way. Just because he disagrees with you today, that doesn't mean he won't be praising you in a day and a half.

I'm pretty sure Trump would blast me if he knew who the heck I was.

You know from my previous posts that I don't blindly defend anyone. Just going by Trump's words and actions, he's not more racist than average.

This is a distraction. It's not Trump and the "evil racist GOP conspiracy" you should be worried about. The Democrats were the party of the KKK. Democrat leaders in Congress tried to stop the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And ever since, Democrats have been telling "blacks" that no matter what they can't succeed without government help because they aren't good enough. Racism has been perpetuated in the name of fighting racism.

No, I mean it's still happening and Democrats are responsible for more than their fair share. We could talk about LBJ, we can talk about Strom Thurmond, we can talk about Bill Clinton. And we can talk about Barack Obama.

We can talk about the "projects" that tore down existing neighborhoods and replaced them with crime-infested buildings that soon had to be torn down themselves. We can talk about aid for single mothers that suppressed marriages among young "blacks" and absolutely destroyed generations. We could talk about race hustlers who built careers and empires based on telling people that they were victims because The Man kept them down. We can talk about unions who excluded "blacks" from membership until they needed the numbers, and still spent decades having two classes of members, the "white" and the "black."

But most of all, we can talk about how the Democrat party spent decades promising privilege and declaring that it was civil rights. But not everyone need apply.

That is the Democrat legacy. And as ugly as the Republican legacy is, there's no denying that the Democrat leaders wanted victims they could exploit.
