Trump tried to ban all Muslims from traveling
1- Islam is an ideology. Muslims can be white, black, Arab, Asian, etc.
2- His first official visit was to Muslim countries.
3- The ban is focused on countries the US is currently fighting a cold war with, and countries that are known to use insurgents and gorilla warfare as their main weapon.
Also, the restrictions on these countries came from Obama, Trump simply expanded them slightly.
and called Mexicans rapists and criminals.
No he didn't, he not only specified that yes there are good people, but also his entire statement was in reference to the Mexicans who are illegally entering the US that many of them are drug traffickers and criminals, which is true. The Mexican cartels do hold and control most of these routes, and they use them for human and drug trafficking and they are criminals.
You can easily check the US security forces lists on active gangs and mobs in the US to know his statement is indeed true.
Noting he said Mexico isn't sending its best before saying they're bringing drugs, they're rapists.
To clarify why this is not racist with a local example from here.
Syria isn't sending its best to Lebanon. The Syrian middle class, traders, professionals all went to Europe, while all the poor ones came to Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, including with them all the gangs, all the criminals who escaped from prisons, many of the mercenaries who committed crimes in the war, all the Islamists who escaped etc.
Therefor, if someone came and said: Syria isn't sending us its best and adding that they're rapists and criminals and extremists all while some of them are good people about the people coming to the country here, they wont be lying, because that's a huge percentage of the people who came to the country from Syria, primarily al-Jama'a al-Islamiya people almost entirely moved to Lebanon escaping from Syria.
Well, the same applies to Trump's statements regarding illegal Mexican migrants.
Sure, there are good people using illegal routes, but the primary users are cartels, smugglers, traffickers, runaway criminals.
Noting that the majority of Mexican migration to the US is not only seasonal but mostly legal, not illegal.
He was way more racist than this kid was.
Also, Mexicans, like Muslims, are not a racial group.
Sure, Trump is a nationalist, but throwing any random buzz word doesn't really work anymore.
So she did not discriminate against anyone.
Prejudice and discrimination are not the same thing. She was prejudiced against them, but as far as I'm aware, that bigotry was not followed by an action, thus no discrimination.
And if you are defining racism as discrimination, then she was not racist.
"Racism is any and all prejudice
based on race."
In comparison, black people have to deal with actual discrimination frequently.
Not really, I did buy into this simple one reason explanation narrative at first, but the more anyone looks into the data, what some black communities in the US face is not due to racism.
Even the many police shootings we keep hearing about are not primarily not caused by racism.
It has much more to do with poverty, the location of these communities near or in major cities thus making it lucrative for foreign gangs to spread to them with poverty easing the way, high crime rates and internal warrior communities forming as a result of these gangs, the ease of obtaining guns both legal and illegal in the US, the breaking apart of families which although not limited to black people since it's an expected result of large cities, but also plays a role here, etc.
If it was just because of racism and being black, then it wouldn't happen all over the world with all sorts of racial and ethnic groups wherever these conditions meet.
Now, why are many black communities poor? The obvious answer is because of past discrimination right?
Wrong, it's been too long of a time that any effects from those past policies would already be remedied.
The only result remaining consequences of the post-civil war era policies in the US is the entrenchment of the class of oligarchs that was forming during the early 20th century, and this class fucks everyone equally.
The reason why it's black communities that we hear the most about being poor is that the white communities having poverty and economic problems are either rural or sub urban areas (Just look at the map of the 2016 elections, it's the huge red blob away from the coastline) , which means it's not in a strategic location for gangs to spread to since the money is in the major urban centers, as such we see far less of these events faced by poor white communities.
If the racial spread switched, and it was white people in those areas, the exact same thing would be happening to them as well.
Heck, you can see these same conditions meet in Eastern Ukraine, and the exact same problems and level of violence and isolation was facing them even before the events in the recent years.
