Bigotry Hides Behind Sanctimony

By Chuck Marshall

      The Democrats love to call Donald Trump a racist.   They call anyone they disagree with a racist.  It's their favorite word... racist this and racist that.  Is Trump racist ?  Are they right ? If you google search Donald Trump and racist you'll see both sides argue their point that he is or is not a racist.    IMHO he is to a certain extent as we all are.   We all have positive and negative opinions of people based on their race and it's nearly impossible to avoid that.  It's called being human.  We tend to want to categorize people.  It's natural and can be a positive thing also.  Different groups have different skill sets.   In the end we are all children of God and deserving of full respect and kindness in addition to full protection of the law and equal opportunity.  "Viva la difference!" as the French say.

      Has Donald Trump done something in his presidency to indicate unusually bigoted and or racist opinions ?  Not that I've seen.   He actually seems to have done more for African Americans than even Barack Obama IMHO.   Black unemployment is at an all time low, for example.  If you look at his younger years he was also given awards by different black groups for various charity activities involving African Americans.   He dated a black lady for a while.   His son in law,  whom he trusts and has given quite a bit of power,  is Jewish.  How is all this racist ?

      There is a case to be made though, that certain people tend to be more bigoted than others when it is their "modus operandi" to accuse all others.  As Joseph Stalin advised;  "Accuse them of what you're guilty of".   The Democrats that I mention above fall into that category.   Usually they're white liberals.  They are so hysterical,  vitriolic and accusatory that I can't help but wonder what really goes on in their minds.  Are they projecting ?  Do they harbor certain severe dislike of people of color so that they feel guilty and therefor accuse everyone else of "racism" simply because it reminds them of their own barbaric ideas ?  In other words, is it a guilty conscience ?   Are they insufferable,  sanctimonious,  self righteous twits because they know they could never hold a full conversation with a person of color without condescension and hidden contempt ?   There's also something innately racist to imply that all races besides white people need help.  So, I assume they don't think these people can really succeed on their own?  I'm curious, will they always need the valiant white liberal class to defend them against the other evil white people ?   I once had a black friend describe white liberals as "spooky" because she could never tell what they really thought.  Conservatives tend to cut to the truth and express themselves honestly.  Most believe all races are fully capable of helping themselves and the government should be only a tool to help them get out of poverty not the source of never ending handouts that chain them to defeat and victim mentality for generations. 

     All humans in all societies in all countries have some level of racism.  It goes with the territory of being a human being.  But, racism mixed with hatred is called bigotry.  Who's the bigot here,  Donald Trump or his accusers ?
