LEAST RACIST PERSON

Trump’s Personal Feedback Loop

An alcoholic typically underestimates the number of drinks they’ve had. A drug addict lives in denial and focuses on the next fix. Racists avoid that little dark spot in their soul and never admit the defect was placed there by someone else. People are not racists in a vacuum. Humans are not born as racists. And today (1-15-2018), on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, it might be quite appropriate to explore this subject.

Donald Trump gets into trouble with his mouth. He can line up his fine men to lie for him, but that doesn’t change what is inside this man’s heart. Our great Orange Leader looks down his nose at many different minority groups with his words, deeds and actions.

No one person can know if they are the most or least of any description or label they could place on themselves. I might say, I am the cleverest writer in the world. But how can I know that without intimate knowledge of the work of millions of other writers? That’s hardly a possible feat. So, who gave the Donald the power to examine all people on the Earth to determine their personal racism so he can declare his is the least?

What is racism? Well, the dictionary says, Racism is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. And to rub some salt in the wound, racism is the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

It’s quite amazing that with Donald J. Trump’s “fine education” at military school and then at a “very good school” (Wharton Business School), Trump must have missed learning what words really mean. And now, we must deal with this major flaw in our 45th President.

Trump antagonizes as his main tactic. He directs that antagonization toward minorities, women and enemies. Does Donald Trump really believe he is superior to certain groups of people? His obsession with Barack Obama is an attempt to delegitimize him as an American. The leap between not being born on American soil, to labeling him as an “outsider,” to the notion that Obama is inferior because he was part African has been obvious from the beginning.

Trump has described himself as having “superior genes” and pronounced this as the reason he would always do better than others. He attributed his talents to his DNA, his gene pool, which determine race, color of skin, color of hair, and the like, but doesn’t guarantee success or failure. Trump believes his success draws a direct line between his “whiteness” and his power.

We have already heard him say how smart he is, even going so far to announce that he is “a very stable genius.” I.Q. is a sticky wicket. Once you declare your score, you will spend the rest of your days answering the question, “If you’re so damn smart then why (insert embarrassing question here)?”  If you are so smart and superior to us, Mr. Trump, then why the hell do more than 60% of the country think you are full of shit?

Like the drunk who keeps saying he wants one more drink, or the junky heating up one more spoon of love, Donald Trump wanders around the White House with his “executive time” of idle hours believing he is superior to other people.  He can say he’s the least racist person and that he never said “shithole countries” but it’s a little too late. Everyone knows he lies. He constantly denies anything he thinks the public, and especially the press, think was a mistake.

Let’s focus on the impact of what’s happening here. Trump doesn’t care about the so-called “Dreamers.” He would prefer to deport them all and start over with a whiter America. But he fails to understand the tide of demographics and the needs of millions of voting minorities in this country.

Women, of whatever color, deserve respect, thus the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. African-Americans must be protected from police brutality and malpractice, as all citizens must be, thus #BlackLivesMatter. Hispanic or Latina Americans are on the march and they will not be stopped. Trump can complain about how they all got here, and scream about the need for his ill-advised wall, but immigrants are a major part of the American DNA. All Americans must be served, not antagonized, by this president, the leader of the free world.

That brings us to the question of President Donald Trump’s status as a card-carrying racist. If we are using words and actions to determine the definition of a man or, as Martin Luther King, Jr. would have said, if we judge Donald Trump not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character, then, yes, Donald Trump is a racist.

He can deny it all he wants, but in the end, Donald Trump has just enough Richard Nixon, a dab of George Wallace and a heap of Fred Trump in his DNA to make him a terrible person; clearly unfit for office. It would be easy to say Trump’s attitudes are due to misaligned gene placement, but maybe the Donald was just raised to be a racist.

In 1927, during a KKK parade that turned into a riot, two Italian-Americans were murdered and many people were arrested. One of those arrested was Fred Trump of 175-24 Devonshire Road in Jamaica, New York, Donald Trump’s father. It’s unclear why he was there, but it does beg this question. Why did Donald Trump deny his father’s presence there for so many years? It’s another part of a sad pattern of lies, denials and deep-seated need for Trump to cleanse his image. Racism is a cancer that, certainly, Dr. Martin Luther, Jr. would say can be cured with love and understanding. Trump needs to fix DACA and show some love.

TRUMP’S TRUE COLORS

Inherently Racist Messaging

I don’t profess to know what is in another man’s heart, but after many years of observations I do believe I have found some answers to many of my questions about Trump.

One of the things that most experts tell you about pathological liars is that they hate when someone proves they are lying. And they usually embody the following characteristics: narcissism, selfishness, abusive attitude, obsessive, compulsive behaviors, impulsivity, aggressiveness, jealous behavior, manipulative behaviors, deceptiveness, socially awkward, uncomfortable, low self-esteem, temperamental outbursts and anger. Why do these words feel like they were written about Donald Trump? Actually, those are straight-off-the-shelf descriptions of most pathological liars.

But there is a toxic combination of jealous behavior, low self-esteem and anger that can also deliver another dark disorder called racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.

If we dip into the Donald’s past, we know that one of the most embarrassing things that happened to the Trumps in New York City was the law suit accusing them of discrimination in the housing market. According to the Business Insider Website: A civil-rights lawsuit brought by the Justice Department against Donald Trump and his father Fred Trump in 1973 claimed that African-Americans and Puerto Ricans were prevented from renting apartments from Trump. In 1975, Trump agreed to a consent decree, whereby no admission of wrongdoing would be given, however, his management company was ordered to take out ads telling ethnic minorities that they were welcome to seek housing at Trump properties.

Trump’s well-established modus operandi is to blame those who disagree with him or stand in the way of him either getting away with a lie or making money. Blame the accuser and hit back hard. Could the President be harboring deep-seated feelings that African-Americans are out to get him in some way? That is a strange form of racism.

Trump brags constantly about his wealth and success and attributes it to his genetic makeup. He told Playboy in 1990 that he is “a strong believer in genes” and “I’m a strong believer in genes, that my kids can be brought up without adversity and respond well if they have the genes.” Forget about whispers to the Alt-Right, this is a scream.

According to the Independent website: “The [Trump] family subscribes to a racehorse theory of human development. “They believe that there are superior people and that if you put together the genes of a superior woman and a superior man, you get a superior offspring.” Doesn’t that sound a bit like what the Germans were talking about in 1939?

Let’s look at his weird responses to white supremacist groups. In TheGuardian: Activists who recently gave Nazi salutes and shouted “hail Trump” at a gathering in Washington will revolt if the new US president fails to meet their expectations, the leaders told the Guardian. And have we heard the President declare his contempt for these groups once?

Steve Bannon stokes the gene fire and white supremacist messaging. Trump is being played like a limp puppet by Stephen Miller and Bannon who actually believe that nationalism trumps pluralism. They want to divide the nation and give the “power” back to white people. Trump, at least, is an accomplice in this terrible affront to American citizen equality.

Now that brings us to the final argument on the racist in the White House. Let’s assume that some of the material that was in the now famous Dossier that was prepared by a British spy was less than accurate, but one point stood out to me. The fact that Donald Trump did not like Michelle Obama and, if Trump’s backward blaming is to believed, he dislikes the former President even more. Get Serious! For years, Donald Trump claimed Barack Obama wasn’t born in America, only to later half-heartedly admit that he was wrong. And Trump has never convincingly pushed back against the Alt-Right’s use of Nazi images of Obama.

Trump actually believes that he can attribute everything that is wrong in his America to Obama. This week Donald Trump blamed Obama for not doing more about the Russian attempts to get him elected. Does he really think the people are that stupid? Yes, he does and, sadly, some are.

Deep down inside, this constant use of Obama as whipping boy speaks to his real true color, prejudice. Some will say I’m being unfair, but it’s all there in front of you. Think about it:

Trump knows that Obama is a better speaker and smarter man (jealous behavior).

Trump knows that no matter what happens in the world Obama’s legacy will be lower unemployment, saving the US auto industry and moving the economy back into the black (uncomfortable, low self-esteem).

Trump’s real job seems to be doing everything he can to justify his presidency by creating a narrative that Obama is inferior to his perfect planned genome (manipulative behaviors, deceptiveness).

And in the end, Trump will find himself all alone in a country whose diversity will never be stopped by racism or tied down by stereotypes. It appears from this vantage point that Donald Trump, our President, is at best, a part-time racist.
