We don’t have reliable polls on “how many racists are there in America.” Racists tend to resist self-identifying as such. And racists are good at rationalizing away their own biases. Nobody who ends up on @YesYoureRacist thinks they deserve to be there.

But the Trump... “thing,” is interesting because we have a guy running for president whose entire platform is racism. He’s racist towards Mexicans, he’s racist towards Muslims. He’s a “birther,” which is the polite word for “a racist who questions Obama’s legitimacy because Obama is black.” He was racist towards Jews and a Jewish event... which takes some hutzpah. And when he’s not being racist, he’s being sexist. There are almost no policies or proposals Trump is running on that are anything other than racist.

The mainstream media has been happy to call Trump a racist and a bigot. Other Republican candidates have even called him a bigot.

And yet the people who support this unabashed bigot largely get a pass from a media obsessed with “understanding” them. The media, desperately almost, tries to give race-neutral reasons for Trump’s supporters. Here’s USA Today saying Trump supporters “are hankering for a bare-knuckle fighter.” Here’s S.E. Cupp flailing around, calling Trump supports “disaffected moderates” who are sick of the two-party system. And here’s our greatest active internet writer, Drew Magary, who embedded himself with Trump supporters in Iowa, coming up with this takeaway for GQ:

[T]he grim undercurrent of his rise is SHAME. After all, if you believe we must make America great again, then you must also believe that America, at the present moment, sucks. And pretty much everyone at the Trump picnic believed that America sucks.

Or... EVERYONE AT THE TRUMP PICNIC IS RACIST. Why the hell is that so hard to say? Why do we feel the need to explain support for a racist in non-racial terms? We’ve seen the polls showing that Trump supporters overwhelming support biased policies. We’ve read the stories about Trump events turning violent on minorities. I think we’re dealing with something a little more potent than “shame.”

SPONSORED

There are Republicans all across the map that are better poised to capitalize on Trump’s supposed non-racist strengths. Chris Christie is a bare-knuckle fighter who speaks without artifice. Rand Paul is a disaffected third party candidate in a two-party system. Mike Huckabee thinks America’s failings are moral. Hell, MIKE BLOOMBERG is a successful businessman who wanted to make America rich again.

The one thing that Trump has that those other candidates do not is unabashed racism. The racism isn’t a bug, it’s the central feature of his candidacy. For years, Republicans have been dog whistling at their racist base, letting them know they are there for them and agree with them without risking a “racism” charge in the press. All Trump is doing is swallowing his whistle and voicing his racism plainly. This is the real “straight talk express.” And the racists love him for it.

There is no deeper angle here. There is no complicated story. Trump supporters are racist. FULL STOP. If they weren’t racist, they’d support some other guy. Some guy who believes in most of what Trump believes, WITHOUT THE RACISM.

I think that some of the resistance on the part of the media to “write off” a quarter to a third of the Republican electorate as “racist,” stems from an inability to truly believe that there are so many racists left out there. You’ll hear people say that Trump is appealing to “a few” supremacists. People, especially white people but there are pockets in every group, like to think of hardcore, inveterate, “I think there is a link between skin color and abilities” racists are a dying and isolated breed. “Maybe there are still some left in Georgia and Reddit, but surely there aren’t enough left to propel a major party candidate.”

But those people have mistaken changing a taboo for changing hearts and minds. It’s no longer “politically correct” to say racist things, but in most of the country it’s still just fine to actually be racist. Or sexist. And homophobia was cool everywhere except San Francisco, New York, and like Austin until eight seconds ago. Trump is the first candidate since racism became taboo to give the racists somebody to vote for who doesn’t make them feel bad for being racist.

And there are a lot of racists out there. In a way, we should thank Trump. He is baiting the racists into self-identifying. If you see a Trump supporter on your Facebook feed, now you know that they are as racist as they’ve always seemed to be. Act accordingly.

everything is racist to SJWs. they actually screamed and cried in 2008 about how cuckfaggot mccain was "racist." nothing will ever placate them because they aren't rational, so there's no point in even engaging them. just ignore them as the idiots they are, and move on.

It's often misused when simple prejudice is more appropriate. I brought this up once...and only once.

JFC libs.

>He’s racist towards Mexicans,

NOPE. Author appears to be alluding to enforcement of immigration law, which is race neutral. By Elie's implicit logic, enforcing securities law is anti-semitic and enforcing laws against rape is anti-male.

>he’s racist towards Muslims

NOPE. Muslim is not a race. A group devoted to a warlord pedophile does not gain insulation from criticism because it styles itself as a religion.

>He’s a “birther,” which is the polite word for “a racist who questions Obama’s legitimacy >because Obama is black.

NOPE. Wanting documentation is not racist, notwithstanding that it is overwhelmingly likely that Obama was born in the US (but also let his book publisher claim he was from Kenya when it was convenient, which is a large part of what started the whole thing).

>He was racist towards Jews and a Jewish event... which takes some hutzpah.

NOPE. Libs read anti-semitism into remarks, then accused Trump of being anti-semitic. Truly, truly next level flame.

Why is his daughter such a traitorous idiot!? Were she manipulated by a sleazy orthodox Jew into marrying him!? If true, that is a grotesque act by his daughter.

I actually didn't realize that. Speaking of, have any of the Jewish folks in the audience at that event spoken out? Or is the lib media just offended on their behalf?

Some stayed with it long past it became obvious it was bogus, but this was worth checking into. His own publisher sold his books with a biography that said he was born in Kenya: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/booklet.asp

Yes, some racists latched onto birtherism. *However*, that does not mean birtherism is racist. This very basic logic has gotten lost, and that Obama's own book is the source of the confusion has gone completely down the memory hole.
