Now he's saying he isn't in the pic? Yeah right. Now I want him gone too. You don't "flip-flop" on an issue like this. You KNOW if you were in it or not.

I want him gone, too. But I do not think he should be removed from office as the duly elected Governor. I do believe, kind of like Trump, he should be removed from office at the next election, assuming he is foolish enough to run again. By the people voting him out of office. If he chooses to resign that would be fine too.

A Racist is someone who uses Race as a factor in evaluating a human being.
I would say the same for a store owner who would hire the young White man with slightly inferior credentials to the young Black man..



I would hire the white kid every time.
The black kid might be great, but I
guarantee he has siblings or cousins
who are crooks and you never know
what you're getting into. If I owned a
factory, that would be different. But
a small store is totally different.

Racist? Nope, just personal experience.
I hired black cab drivers, but they are
contractors, nothing to steal but their
own money.

Bob, I just got back from Wegman's. The kid checking me out was a well groomed, polite, efficient young African American boy. You didn't want Wegman's to hire him because you "guarantee he has siblings or cousins who are crooks'??? In your world, how big does the store have to be to safely hire Black people? I'll take the ban if the mods want to, but your above post to me is the definition of racism.

To not hire someone simply because they are black is absolutely racism. To claim that it is complete dishonesty and blindness. This is also without any question a personal attack against people here

Because the title of this thread is about Trump, I'll add that so long as people have these views and follow through on them, he is failing in his promise to Make America Great Again. These views go against virtually every American value you can think of.

-----

A better question than asking which political party has more racists, is asking which party a racist is more likely to align themselves with? Probably hard to get an honest answer from anyone, because everyone will simply say it is the other side. The civil rights movement did a great job of taking racism out of politics, but nothing has been able to take racism out of every other places. And there are so many comments at wizardofvegas that prove that to be true.

No need to label this as anything. It speaks for itself.

I like how a Democrat governor was caught in black face standing next to a person in a white hood and all the Libs here come out claiming Republicans are the most racist. You can't make this stuff up.
