Ta-Nehisi Coates: ‘You Might Be A White Supremacist’ | All In | MSNBC


>>A FEW DAYS BEFORE ANCHOR GELEL HILL TWEETED THE PRESIDENT IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST, SHE SHARED ON HER FACEBOOK PAGE, TA-NEHISI COATES PIECE IN THE ATLANTIC IELTED “THE FIRST WHITE PRESIDENT” HE SAYS. JOINING ME NOW IS TA-NEHISI COATES, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER, WHICH PEOPLE SHOULD READ TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THAT QUOTE, WHICH IS CHILLING AND UNNERVING, ONE OF THE FAVORITE THINGS IN THE BOOK. GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE.>>GOOD TO BE HERE.>>I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE GEMEL HILL THING, I’M NOT SAYING THIS CAME FROM YOU. SHE POSTED YOUR ARTICLE AND SAYS WE WERE JOKING IF YOU PUBLISH THIS ON THE COVER OF ONE OF THE OLDEST MAGAZINES IN AMERICA.>>IT’S FINE.>>PEOPLE DEBATE IT. FEW TWEET IT, YOU ARE GEMEL HILL, YOU MIGHT GET IN TROUBLE.>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT ESPN’S POLICY IS WITH REGARDS TO POLITICS. I CAN’T SPEAK OF APOINTIATENESS. I CAN SPEAK TO THE AUDIENCE OF SARAH HUCKABY SANDERS AND NOW DONALD TRUMP, HIMSELF. THIS IS CHARACTERS, IT’S ALL OF IT IS TRUCULENT WHITE SUPREMACIST POWERS. THIS IS WHEN WHITE SUPREMACISTS GO BACK TO SLAVE HOLDERS. IT’S ALWAYS THE WHITE SUPREMIST WHO IS BEING OFFENDED. I THINK IT’S PRETTY CHARACTERISTIC.>>I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT TERM WHITE SUPREMACIST IN A SECOND. LAYOUT THE CONCEIT OF THE PEACE, WHICH IS THAT DONALD TRUMP IS THE FIRST WHITE PRESIDENT.>>RIGHT.>>IS A REALLY GRIPPING ONE. WHAT’S THE BASIC IDEA?>>WELL, I WANTED TO ATTACK THE BASIC NOTION THAT WHITENESS IS ABOUT PHENOTYPE IT’S BY LOGICALLY AND INHER AT THE TIMED. IT’S AN IDEA, NOT A REAL THING, IN FACT. SO WHITENESS ACTUALLY HAS TO COME FROM A CERTAIN PLACE AND THROUGHOUT AMERICAN HISTORY, WHAT IT’S COOL FROM IS IT NEGATES THE BLACKNESS, THE IDEA OF NOT BEING A WORD I CAN’T SAY HERE IN THE ESSAY. ONE OF THE FASCINATING THINGS ABOUT TRUMP IS NOT SO MUCH THAT, YOU KNOW, HE HAS A HISTORY OF RACISM, HAS A HISTORY OF BEING A WHITE SUPREMACIST. WE’VE HAD OTHER PRESIDENTS LOOK THAT, WE’VE HAD OTHER WHITE SUPREMACISTS WHO CHECKED WHITE ON THE CENSUS FORM. WE NEVER HAD A PRESIDENT WHO SO MUCH DEFIED HIMSELF BY THE PRESIDENT THAT WAS BEFORE HIM WHO JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE OUR FIRST PLAQUE PRESIDENT. MY ARGUMENT IN THE PIECE, IN FACT, YOU CANNOT HAVE A WHITE PRESIDENT, THE IDEA HAVE A WHITE PRESIDENT WITHOUT HAVING A BLACK AMERICAN.>>YOU SAY THE IDEOLOGY IS WHITE SUPREMACY. YOU USE IT HOOE, THE ONE GEMEL HILL USED AS WELL. I WANT TO MAKE AN ARCHITECT FOR WHY THAT BRINGS PEOPLE UP SHORT? RIGHT.>>WHICH I THINK YOU KNOW.>>I DO.>>THAT IS A TERM THAT AT LOVE WORK HAS GONE INTO, INTO CREATING TABOO AROUND. SORT OF RIGHTLY, I THINK.>>RIGHT.>>SO THE CONCEPTION IN COMMON PARLANCE IS SOMEONE WHO PROUDLY PROCLAIMS THEIR BELIEF IN THE INFERIORITY OF NON-WHITE PEOPLE.>>RIGHT.>>ARE YOU USING IT IN A MUCH MORE EXPANSIVE SENTENCE. WHAT IS THAT DOING? WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?>>WELL, I THINK IF YOU OWN A BUSINESS THAT ATTEMPTS TO KEEP BLACK PEOPLE FROM RENTING FROM YOU, IF YOU ARE REPORTED TO SAY YOU DON’T WANT BLACK PEOPLE COUNTING 94 MONEY. IF YOU SAY, YOU KNOW, AND NOT REPORT IT. COME OUT AND SAY, SOMEONE CAN’T JUDGE THEIR CASE BECAUSE THEY’RE MEXICAN. IF YOUR RESPONSE TO THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT IS THEY WEREN’T BORN IN THIS COUNTRY, DESPITE ALL PROOF. FEW SAY THEY WEREN’T SMART ENOUGH TO GO TO HARVARD LAW SCHOOL AND DEMAND TO SEE THEIR GRADES, IF THAT’S THE ESSENCE OF YOUR ENTIRE POLITICAL IDENTITY, YOU MIGHT BE A WHITE SUPREMACIST. IT’S JUST POSSIBLE. I’M WILLING TO HAVE THAT DEBATE AND HEAR THE OTHER SIDE. BY YOU MIGHT BE. I THINK WITH DONALD TRUMP, I WOULDN’T SAY GEORGE BUSH IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HIS POLICIES. I CAN MAKE AN ARGUMENT HOW THEY AFFECT BLACK PEOPLE IN A NEGATIVE WAY? RIGHT.>>I WOULDN’T ARGUE HE’S A WHITE SUPREMACIST. I WOULDN’T ARGUE MITT ROMNEY IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST.>>IN TERMS OF THE ESSENTIAL CORE OF WHAT HE IS DOING –>>I DON’T THINK HE’S PRESIDENT WITHOUT IT. I THINK THAT’S THE HUGE DIFFERENCE. IT’S NOT A SIDE. IT’S NOT LIKE BUSH 1 FOR INSTANCE WITH WILLIE HORTON, WHICH WAS BAD, BY THE WAY, RIGHT? NOT DEFINITE. THIS IS A THING IN ORDER TO GET OVER. IT’S THE CORE OF HIM. HE BEGAN HIS CAREER IN BIRTHERRISM. IT WASN’T ALONG THE WAY. THAT WAS WHAT KICKED IT OFF. SO I THINK IN THAT SENSE, HE’S DIFFERENT.>>THERE’S A REAL QUESTION I THINK ABOUT SOMETIMES ABOUT TRUMP AND I THINK ABOUT ROSS PEROT.>>RIGHT.>>WHERE I THINK ABOUT IT. I REMEMBER LIVING THROUGH THE ROSS PEROT PHENOMENON AND THINKING THERE WAS ALL THESE PIECES LIKE THE TWO-PARTY SYSTEM IS BROKEN FOREVER. THERE IS A TRANSFORMATIONAL MOMENT IN AMERICAN POLITICS, NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME. IT TURNED OUT HE WOULD BE AN ANSWER TO THE TRIVIA QUESTION. THERE WAS NO PRE ROISM. IT WAS A SUI GENERAL PHENOMENON. I WONDER WHICH PATHS LAY BEFORE US. IS HE THIS TRANSFORMATIONAL HINGE IN AMERICAN HISTORY ABOUT THE APPEAL OF PARTICULARLY WHITE NATIONALISM FRONT AND CENTER OR RELEGATED TO A KIND OF FOOTNOTE?>>I DON’T KNOW, I HOPE IT’S THE LATTER T. ARGUMENTS OF THE FORMER THOUGH IS, IN FACT, AS MUCH AS I SAY TRUMP IS DIFFERENT. HE ACTUALLY IS THE CULMINATION OF A CERTAIN PATH THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY CHOSE FROM NIXON ON. AND PARTICULARLY CHOSEN HOW IT INTERACTED WITH OBAMA EVER A THE LAST SIX YEARS, THAT SAYS HE HAS ACTUAL ROOTS IN SOMETHING. THIS IS NOT A MILITARY HUNTA. THIS SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT CASTS THE VOTES.>>THAT ARGUES FOR SOMETHING MORE. LISTEN, MY GREAT FEAR IS THAT SOMEONE MORE CONFIDENT, SOMEONE WHO BETTER UNDERSTANDS WASHINGTON, WILL LOOK AT TRUMP AND PHYSICAL OUT AND SAY, OH, THIS IS WHAT I GOT TO DO. THIS IS WHAT I CAN GET AWAY WITH. YOU KNOW, THAT I THINK IS THE GREAT A REALLY SCARY THING THAT CAN COME OUT OF THIS.>>SO I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE SORT OF THE CAUSE OF THE TRUMP WIN IN SORT OF RELATIONSHIP TO YOUR ARTICLE.>>RIGHT.>>BECAUSE I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS YOU TALK ABOUT IN THE ARTICLE. YOU HAVE SORT OF A SECTION WHERE YOU TALK ABOUT THIS OB SEX WITH THE WHITE WORKING CLASS, PARTICULARLY.>>RIGHT.>>YOU SURE TO LAYOUT THIS CASE THE REASON TRUMP IS PRESIDENT BECAUSE OF WHITE PEOPLE. HE WON EVERY CATEGORY. SO HE WON THEM GEOGRAPHICALLY, BY INCOME, BY EDUCATION LEVEL, BY GENDER, ET CETERA. BUT THERE IS THIS PART THAT STRUCK OUT TO ME. YOU SAID TRUMP WON WHITE WOMEN9 AND WHITE WOMEN OF COLLEGE DEGREES PLUS 3 AND WHITE PEOPLE WITHOUT THEM, 37. I READ THAT IN THE PIECE WHEN YOU MAKE THIS POINT ABOUT LET’S THINK ABOUT THIS AS WHITENESS. I SAW THAT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 3 AND 37, MY MIND WAS LIKE, THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON THERE.>>THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON.>>THERE IS LIKE THERE OB SEX WITH THE WHITE WORKING CLASS OR WHITE NON-COLLEGE IT’S CALLED. THERE IS A NUMERICAL BASIS FOR THAT.>>RIGHT.>>THERE IS.>>BUT WHAT I ALWAYS SAY IS THAT THERE IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN SAYING IS THAT THERE IS A TENDENCY TO PAY ATTENTION TO ONE ADJECTIVE MORE THAN THE OTHER. AS I ARGUE IN THE PIECE, WHITE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, WHITE WORKING CLASS IN THERMS OF THEIR VOTES ARE NOT — TERMS OF THEIR VOTES ARE NOT REMARKABLE IN TERMS OF THEIR WORKINGNG CLASSNESS, IT’S THEIR WHITENESS, THAT’S WHAT PUTS THEM IN THEIR LEAK. MORE WHITE WORKING CLASS PEOPLE. PLAQUE WORKING CLASS DIDN’T DO FOR HIM. LATINO WORKS CLOSE, SOME DID. IT’S THE WHITENESS THAT’S SIMILAR ACROSS THE BOARD THAT GOES ACROSS CLASS, ACROSS GENDER AND EDUCATION. THAT’S WHAT DIFFERENT. THE ARGUMENT IS NOT AMONG SOME CERTAIN GROUP OF WHITE PEOPLE YOU CAN’T FIND MORE SUPPORTERS. THAT’S DEFINITELY TRUE. WHAT’S THE THING THAT’S MOST COMMON? IT’S THE WHITENESS, THAT’S WHAT’S MOST COMMON. NOT THE WORKINGNESS. NOT THE FACT OF BEING A MEMBER OF THE WORKING CLASS.>>THERE IS THIS QUESTION ABOUT THIS SORT OF OBAMA-TRUMP VOTER. THAT IS A KIND OF PEOPLE SAY THIS ALL THE TIME, YOU ARE SHAKING YOUR HEAD ALREADY. I. YOU TO RESPOND TO THAT. I THINK YOU GET SOME INTERESTING TERRAI

  1. Here is the recipe for Republican's and Trump's winning. Put Coates on more and more and there will be soooo much winning. I wont even get sick of it.

  2. Its funny Obama's literary agency was apparently a white supremicist birther by these arguements.
    www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2146622/amp/Barack-Obama-Kenyan-born-2007-according-literary-agency–months-announcing-bid-U-S-presidency.html

    And this was Trump's basis for his birtherism, not "white supremacy."

  3. This guys whole career is based on playing the race card and victimizing his fellow black brothers and sisters. Disgusting

  4. Coates uses so many "dog whistles"

    Simply amazing. Smart guy, I'm not a Trump fan. I see him and Trump as being amazingly similar. Egotistical, racial pandering, historical revisionism, blanket stereotypes. Coates and Trump are the same person.

  5. He can't even speak English properly. The only pure racist here is this fool. White people created America. If you don't like it please leave. They really don't need you at all and you add zero value.

  6. WHAT'S WRONG WITH TRUMP NOT WANTING BLACKS TO COUNT THIS MONEY? IS MICHAEL OBAMA A WHITE SUPREMACIST? HE SAID OBAMA'S HOME COUNTRY WAS KENYA. THERE IS A VIDEO OF THAT TRANNY SAYING THAT.

  7. Great job with spreading the false narrative of black victimization. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Your willing to have the debate ? Debate Colin Flaherty.

  8. I am so glad someone reminded America that trump demanded to see Obama’s grades and then had his own grades three days later

  9. Its funny! Everything he mentioned TRUMP questions, debates of others! Trump grossly LACKS! And has never, ever ! Will possess!

    Trump is compared to those qualities which he isnt CAPABLE of! So he is deeply ENVIOUS AND JEALOUS! I feel for that weak type of soul who attacks what he lacks!

  10. Mcconnell Black Americans are paying you taxes last I heard you work for the people. So we shouldn't be giving you our money. I wasn't there when you got elected. Mic'19

  11. Close up shop, te. Rude, ungrateful, another nigerian scheme. 0 time for your ways, im not amused by you suggesting i have more to be robbed. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Slave_Revolt_of_1712

  12. Trump is the personification of the heart of "America" not Asian Americans, not Italian, Irish, African American….Americans, each and everyone not a hyphqnated American.

  13. In 1684 the "white" social class was created with specific privileges in protest of mixed marriages between men of African descent and non African descent women that were indentured in the colony of Virginia. Whiteness is a class with privileges reserved only for those that fit the description by Blood.

  14. Give BLACK LEFTISTS all the OSCARS, GRAMMY'S, SUPER BOWLS etc.. cos of their SKIN. I'm not WHITE but it's getting ridiculous with BLACK LEFTISTS, they become like little princess using the sufferings of other BLACK PEOPLE in history.

  15. The difference between Perot-ism and Trump-ism is simple … Trump won on it, transformed the Republican Party with it and Perot-ism did not. Trump-ism is here to stay, the mask is off and we see the true face of a Party that supports him in the 90% range. How do you overcome that stigma when they aren't even trying to.

  16. This was a special treat: the collaboration of two demonstratively high I.Q.’s. A moment for all geeks and 4-eyes to stand and be counted. Here’s proof that it gets better.

  17. He lost the pop vote by 3mil. The people didn't get him in. Corruption and foreign influence did it. Stop giving him credit for winning over America. He didn't.

  18. Trump is a psycho, and if we don't reform the office of president,, we're CRAZY too. Why does Pelosi and McConnel control legislation, why? We have to reform the govt. much more participatory and get the corporations out… It's the system stupid!

  19. I hate to disagree with Coates regarding Trump being the 1st white president. I believe Trump is the 1st narcissist white president. Other white presidents may have thought along the same/similar lines or worse. The access via media is the game changer.

  20. Reparation NOW
    by Derrick O'Reagan aka Kamjel

    Reparation is the making of amends for a wrong you have committed accompany by fiduciary penalty
    Its an action of true LOVE

    Without reparation for blacks and indigenous people the declaration of INDEPENDENCE IS empty word

    Without reparatory Justice USA and all its allies are Hypocrite to Democracy

    YOU! descendants OF SLAVE OWNERS are crying out YOU did not enslaved anyone

    Are YOU not enjoying the inheritance of the wealthy fruits of Slavery of YOUR ancestors? YES

    With your arrogance YOU stand in the halls of congress the house that my ancestors built without pay speaking words of abomination of no reparation

    SOME OF YOU STILL LIVES ON PLANTATION THAT MY ANCESTORS WERE SLAVES

    Reparation is justice
    Given to an exploited ethnic GROUP,
    YES,, JUSTICE

    Reparation were given and continue to be given to the Jews after WORLD WAR 2
    RIGHTFULLY DESERVED FOR the NAZI'S ATROCITIES

    What about blacks and indigenous people?
    Who lost over 100 million people to white genocide

    Reparation is Justice
    No Justice, no PEACE
    REPARATION NOW!

  21. Hayes just swept aside his remark of a possibility a white supremacist with a brain, thats capable to take this phenomenon onto the next level. hmm

  22. UNEDUCATED white people have a more urgent need to identify themselves as "white" than EDUCATED white people, who have a far broader spectrum of attributes with which they can identify.

  23. White Supremacy is right.
    We have THE White Trash in the White House and nothing is getting done about his removal and punishment.

  24. When a Fake News network like MSNBC invited a core racist to label a president who has done far more for minorities in term of criminal Justice reform, increase in wages, job creation & over 3 millions more blacks & Latinos are currently working than when Pres. Obama was in office, these morons running fake news are living in an alternative world not our real world. Whenever anyone criticizes Obama on his policies & ideas, core racists in the media will quickly label them or opposition racists. We must remember that Pres. Clinton was labelled a racist when Hillary was running against Obama. Today, Joe Biden is a racist for running against Kamala & Cory. I'm a real black man but not a victim in the greatest nation on earth, these guys at MSNBC & CNN are nothing but morons & propaganda arm of the DNC. Shameful!

  25. This is why America is so divided, fools talking to fools. They want to make sure blacks never forget their victims and they're just to stupid not to be.

  26. Hey America, and you white devilish Khazarians on YouTube.
    White supremacy which you devil's here embrace is a sick mindset, that you khazarians hide behind. Is a mentality where you think you are better, and better off as a people because you are white and WICKED! This evil mindset pervades both political parties. You have the ALPHA WOLVES The Repooplicans who defecate on black folks daily. And the Dumbocrats who are smiling and beguiling FOXES. REGARDLESS BLACK FAMILY THESE 2 GROUPS OF WHITE DEVILS WILL DEVOUR US WHOLE! IF WE LET THEM?

  27. I wish ppl would stop saying Obama is black. He’s African and White… that’s NOT black. I love Obama’s presidency, but let’s be real about this. We have yet to have a BLACK president

  28. Him and his dad discriminated renting Apts to black people, how much proof does anyone else needs?? Classic racist!

  29. 🍊 is a white supremace who showed us who many whites really are. Who he drains of everything they have, ….plain stupid.

  30. There is a major difference on being white and being a White Supremacists. Donald Trump is a disgrace to the United States. He is not only racist, he is a white supremacists. The American people deserves a better leader who exemplifies respect and equality to all mankind.

  31. Trump does look like the pivotal gone south amd twisted because of his huge loyal following, which is more disgusting than Trump itself.

  33. The lead in is nonsensical. But it's nonsensical in a way tat skips over the most obvious and contentious claim. "It is often said that Trump does not have an ideology. but that's not true . Whaite nationalism is Trump's ideology."
    (Often said that)
    a) Trump has no ideology
    b) Bu, Trump has/ believes in white nationalism.
    c) Therefore, not a), Trump does have an ideology.
    This is clearly the form of his argument. He correctly points out that most who should know say Trump has no ideology. But hey, I' to challenge the experts, and say Trump holds, embraces, asserts, whatever the correct term is. , Ergo, The experts are wrong.
    If you're going to challenge the experts and say they're wrong, you really should make sure you have the baics of argukment down and tight. Anyone having taken a semsester in logica or cricial thiking can tell you ther is a suppressed premise, an unstated assumption in this argument form, it is
    d) White nationalism is an ideology.

    Now I've not read the full article yet, but all relevant material for Chris' interview should be presented here. There is nothing presented to support the view that White nationalism is an ideology.. And this is not some subtle elusive slick point. It is strongly hit on in first year critical thinking or basic logic. As Aristotle said, you are a real fool if you present as valid and argument with suppressed o r unstated assumptions. Anyone can prove anything they want if they leave out one of the basic assumptions.
    Moreover, it is not up to the critic (me in this case) to disprove the suppressed assumption, here, stated in D. It is up to the arguments author, here Coats. So what we see is a an Attice artil e author who is so slack in his presentation, he doesn't show he "gets" what he's asked to adhere to by minimal standard of basic essay convention. the accepted conventions.
    But wait, thee's more. This ascription of "white nationalism " to Trump took on life because he came on the air once and said that he was a nationalist, and he phrased it in a way that would make people think he views nationalism as a "view or maybe even an ideology in some weak sense. In that very brief moment in which he seemed to be rising to the challenge of expressing some nascent "ideology". And he seemed tobe trying to tell us what his "nationalism" was, what it means to him to say he is a nationalist, his account oof it seems to be way way overly simple, and also just warmed over Americanism " from the thirties. Coats ignores this, which is ethically suspect and intellectuall fradulent.

    We are blowing it,
    we" being folk on the left. Trump sauys acctually exactly what I said here to oppose us, and Trump is right insaying it. Better step up or lose it in 2020.

  34. This young man has hit the nail on the head its just the color of their skin they can't produce melanin the only part of the races that can't

  35. Mr. Coates has summed up Trump’s ENTIRE presidency and life both accurately and succinctly. Trump IS a racist, misogynistic, inept, ignorant and criminal “president”, period. I’m just deeply saddened that Trump’s true motivation to ENRICH himself and indulge his ugly racist tendencies. He does NOT represent my America!

  36. I'm waiting for trump to use the "N" word just to see how he denies using it then how the republicans make excuses for him using it. Cannot wait!

  37. So once again black people have been saying he is a racist for over 3 years now, and it’s been proven again and again, this time it’s irrefutable

  38. kzar 'ish' host, synagogue of satan. as if synagogue of satan are precious people……revisit Jerry Springer

  39. Whiteness; a Recessive Trait Mutation; without any influence of the Sun, in Ancient times, Leprosy. Caucasian then means dead body, them bones, them bones, them dry bones, Now hear the Words of the LORD, cause it is Written, maybe Spiritually, hidden in understanding?

  40. What makes me angry is people still explaining what we already know. Our dictator. I will not call him pos when in a democracy you get to have a choice how you feel and what you want fixed. A dictator sais either you like it or go back to your country even if your country is here… Because he is both a criminal and a moron. But if you say he is not a racist its because you are a racist as well and share his views. This country is disappointing because of systematic racism and racism period. You cant trust any republicans now because they literally are cover up artist for trump scarambling all the time because his rebranding of white supremacy is relentless. You say ppl that oppose trump dont love this country but I do love this country and all of you are letting hitler 2.0 ruin it! Hate is an everyday word now even amomgst the kids in school. We have kids ripped from their parents arms and in cages. This is the early insanity of hitler and everyone should stop this now!

  41. Thanks for breaking this down very clearly. This reminds me of the book Dying of Whiteness where working class whites cling tighter to race privilege because they see non whites advancing while they don't.

    He still won't concede the Central Park five. He's a dimmer version of Archie Bunker who's more obnoxious, less funny and was born on Third Base. Archie also had a stronger work ethic and actually respected women

  42. I have changed my prayer from, God bless this country, to, God please don't let Trump wake up anymore! 😀

  43. Trump is not the first White President, Trump is brutally outspoken, the 2 Bush's, Clinton, and even Obama these presidents did and say things in CODE and in secrecy, that is the difference between them and Trump, They all knew who and What Trump is and what Trump is about, We as black people have always been behind the 8 ball, Trump did not start all this racism, Good ole Joe Biden and his Crime Bill & President Clinton signed into law is far far worst than anything Trump has ever done…

  44. Donald Trump wasn’t SMART ENOUGH to go a IVY LEAGUE COLLEGE‼️ His DADDY had to bribe the college that he did get into‼️ The man is DUMB!!!

  45. Coates is right, it is the whiteness that is across the board, i.e., racist beliefs and fears that elected this person in the white house.

  46. Your speaking truth to life. This young man saw something in Trump not good. Trump is enjoying every minute of dividing us even further. So if you hate and despise black people, then you can the flames with hate.

    But with that comes another side and it's called. People pushing the F back. Now I know the Mueller report is one of the reasons if not the main reason to impeach Trump. But with all this racist s*** that's going on and coming out of Trumps mouth, he should be impeached for racism and being the leader of hate. Keep it it up Trump and this can backfire, not in your favor.

  47. If racist Donald tRUMP would focus more of his energy on helping the good people of this country itself, perhaps progress  could be made in fixing the mess that he has helped to create over the many months of incompetent leadership. His radical "OVERSIGHT" is a JOKE!

  48. He should have brought some heavy hitter with him when he met with SENATOR. Dr. Claud, dr. Umar johnson, Michael Dyson. The PEOPLE he brought up there wasnt doing

  49. Trump is not “different.” He’s just a remnant from an era (1620-1964), during which Racism/White Supremacy was legally codified into law in the USA—in theory & in practice. Malcolm X, Martin King, Jr., & Robert F. Kennedy were all killed after the so-called Civil Rights Act (the 3rd or 4th in US history & the ONLY one to be enforced) was passed. The rest of the 60s-70s was only RELATIVELY less barbaric (including the war on Black Panthers, student protests at Kent State & Orangeburg, SC). Then Authoritarian Racism (sexism, anti-environmentalism, trade & international imperialism) reasserted itself from the Nixon era through the present in escalating measures. Trump is the Logical outcome, especially for those who have NO historical context & who insist on repeating history.
