  7. @oracle Most of the cases of him being racist are alleged, second-hand reports. Personally, it's not hard for me to believe he said those things, but that's opinion, not fact. More-or-less, my stance on this is "Donald Trump could be a racist" and that's about it. I have my fair share of issues with Trump, and there are a lot of genuine reasons to dislike him, and the racism feels overplayed.

  8. @awl No. That's just a gourmet grilled cheese.

  9. @oracle Okay a few other things. First off, even if I don't necessarily agree with any sort of Islamic registry or ban on Islamic immigration, I don't personally count those ideas as racist. They're more of an excessive reaction to an admittedly real threat.

    There is no absolute, conclusive evidence of Trump being a racist, I can admit that. A lot of it is quotes like this one from his announcement speech:

    “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Whether this one is racist or not is highly debatable, and again comes down to personal opinions and definition. Of course the headline that usually comes with this quote is "Trump believes that Mexicans are rapist by default" Which builds the "Trump is racist" mindset.

  10. @oracle Maybe I don't know you well enough to pick up on your humor. I had assumed you were entirely disregarding the sources because they were on a Reddit link, when I was just using the Reddit thread because I didn't want to take the time to put all the articles together when someone had already done just that.

  11. Actually the real point I was making was that regardless of if he's racist or not, voting Trump doesn't make someone racist, but yeah.

  12. @oracle I'm arguing with you on that. I mean I'm really not arguing at all, the only point I made was that he has shown a lot of behavior that could be seen as racist, depending on personal definition of racism.

  13. @oracle What do you define as a credible source? Each article on that thread is from a reputable news journal with proper quotes and citations.

  14. @oracle I gave you a link detailing all of Trump's racist statements and actions, what more evidence do you want?

  15. @oracle Okay just because I don't want to to take the time, here's a nice little Reddit post with several reputable articles showing Trump's racism.

    Also, a racist is not someone who believes one race to be superior to others, it's someone who discriminates or shows prejudice against a certain ethnic group. That is the proper, dictionary definition.

  16. @oracle I guess it depends on how you define "racist". I mean if you define it as someone who actively lynches minorities and thinks slavery is pretty neat, yeah then Trump's probably not a racist. If you define it as someone who is biased and prejudice towards certain ethnic groups, I feel like he fits the bill.

  17. @oracle Pretty much. Just a part of partisan politics, the people of one side will do anything to diminish the character of people who disagree with them.

  18. @oracle Or 12 years ago if you didn't vote Bush, you were... Yeah I don't actually remember what the deal was with John Kerry was. But yeah it's the same concept.

  19. @ceruleanspark I really don't deny that /he's/ a horrible racist, since he definitely comes off that way. It's just the left-wing mindset seems to be that if you voted for Trump, you're a horrible racist. To me it just reminds me of four years ago when the right-wing folks were saying that if you voted for Obama you like killing babies.

  20. I still like to believe that the majority of Trump supporters aren't horrible racists.

  24. Barack Obama quoted Atticus Finch, which apparently means it's okay to like Atticus Finch again. There are so many things wrong with this.

    Okay first off, there's the obvious fact that Obama quoting the man doesn't absolve his apparent crimes. The president cannot pardon someone of public opinion. If you found Finch's behavior in Go Set a Watchman to be gross, then it still is, and Obama's casual quoting changes nothing.

    Also, Atticus Finch is not a racist. Go Set a Watchman never happened. It was published after Harper Lee's death, she had chosen not to publish it. People who don't know the full story may think it was an unpublished sequel. Really it was more of a rough draft. To Kill a Mockingbird is the proper, canon story. Go Set a Watchman was only released as a sort of exploration of the author (and a shameless cash grab).

  26. @mrmattimation I'm pretty sure we scolded someone once for saying the n-word here even when it was censored, so in the interest of fairness I have to scold you.

  30. @nerthos I feel like critics have their place, and can be useful when approached properly. I very rarely care about whether a critic liked something or not, I care more about why they did or didn't like it. More than anything a good critic review can give an idea of whether or not it's something you would like.
