Should trump Apologize to Africa for Comments? in Speakers Corner January 21, 2018 gowlerk quoting Wendy, "Trump has a long history of seeing more potential or merit in people he can identify with (white, European ancestry) than people he can't identify with (non-white). Not that he's incapable of seeing the merit, just that his assumptions are different when judging, and there's far less benefit of doubt. That's not the racism of lynching or "step off the sidewalk when you see me, boy," but it's still racism." Wendy P. Yes, maybe you're right Wendy. Many people don't see racism for what it is. White nationalist don't consider themselves to be racist at all. They just want a separate "homeland" with no brown people (except maybe servants with no citizenship). But don't call them racists, that's insulting. The truth is, we all have a preference for people who are more like ourselves. We are all racist. It's what we do with that and how we treat others that matters. Kind of agree with both of these statements. But, where we might disagree is that I don't really lump Trump in with the "white nationalists". (I don't know whether you're implying that he is one or not, even though I generally agree with the generic content your post). Hmmmm ....degrees of racism. Maybe just another way to describe cultural differences.
