Donald Trump Says He Is Not A Racist

Donald Trump sounds like the man who told me once he was not racist as he owned a Sammy Davis. Jr. album.

There is just no way to cast Donald Trump as anything but a racist, given how he has acted, and the statements he has made over the past weeks.

I have said it.

Bob Schieffer has stated it.

But Donald Trump claims he is not a racist.

“Well, you know, when it comes to racism and racists, I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people would me would tell you that. I am the least racist I’ve had great relationships. In fact, Randal Pinkett won, as you know, on The Apprentice a little while ago, a couple of years ago. And Randall’s been outstanding in every way. So I am the least racist person.”

CBS’s Bob Schieffer “Ugly Strain Of Racism” With Birthers

Yesterday morning I called the ‘birthers’ racist.  There is no doubt that Donald Trump is using racism to play to the teabagger movement which is steeped in  blatant racism.  Hours after my post was up another voice was added to the choir.

On the CBS Evening News Bob Schieffer weighed in and offered the same conclusion regarding this matter, and how the grades that Obama had which allowed him to get into Harvard are now being called into question.

Bob Schieffer appeared Wednesday night on “The CBS Evening News and reacted to Trump’s latest salvo against President Barack Obama, in which Trump suggested the Prez might not have had the grades to get into Harvard Law School.

Schieffer said, “That’s just code for saying he got into law school because he’s black.  This is an ugly strain of racism that’s running through this whole thing.”
