Here’s an interesting way of putting the whole thing about Trump and racism.
Suppose you’re one of Trump’s supporters and you want to deny that he’s a racist. You think it’s cool that he pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was found guilty of criminal contempt of court, where, in the words of U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, Arpaio had “willfully violated an order of the court” in ceasing his decades-long policies of race-biased policing practices.
Trump’s repeated failure to condemn white supremacy similarly fails to convince you that he’s a racist.
Still, you have to admit that the Nazi’s, the neo-confederates, the KKK and the rest absolutely adore him. Makes one wonder.
