Why Donald Trump is Not a Racist. Trump’s Worst Quotes
I have never written a political post on Swoop The World. Swoop is not a political website so this will be my first and last political article. But I feel like I have an obligation as a proud American to share my views on how to make my country as great as possible. This is a very important topic for me because, as most of you know, I have a two year old son who is half black. I plan on taking him to USA in the future and a racist president would be the worst thing in the world for him. Here are the reasons why Donald Trump is not a racist and his worst quotes (taken from anti-trump articles).
Travel Has Helped Me See the Good and the Bad of the World
These last 5 years traveling the world have given me great perspective on the weaknesses and strengths of many of the countries of the world. I have spent time in countries that are amazing, but because of a violent culture I would never be able to raise a family there. I have been in safe countries with policies that make locals unhappy. Seeing these problems in other cultures with my own eyes have shaped my political stance. My views have not been fed to me by the media, but have developed based on my personal experiences living in different cultures.
Is Donald Trump Racist Against Mexicans?
First of all, Mexican is not a race, it’s a nationality. But let’s pretend when people say Mexicans they actually mean Latinos.
When you read about how racist Donald Trump is, you must consider the source. Here I will give you an example of the absolute worst thing Donald Trump has said about Mexicans. I will use the exact quote and context to show you why he’s not being racist at all.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” – Donald Trump
Most of you have read about my adventures in Mexico. I lived in Mexico for 6 months. I speak fluent Spanish, so I was able to really get to know a lot of Mexican people. Mexico is actually my favorite Latin American culture. The food is great and the people are so friendly.
When Trump made this quote, he was talking about people crossing the border illegally. Most normal Mexicans would never illegally swim across a border and became an illegal in another country. Most normal Mexicans are not law breakers.
Usually the Mexicans who are desperate enough to get out of a country that is richer than 75% of the planet (somewhere around there), are the lower class. Many lower class Mexicans are genuinely good people. But after living in Mexico, I learned that it has one of the most violent cultures on the planet. Fortunately for them, that violent culture only exists among the drug cartels, criminals and lower class. Unfortunately for us, that’s a large number of people crossing into USA illegally.
Stepping foot in any number of poor areas in Mexico can mean a death sentence. The murder rates in those areas are through the roof. So, when we take these people who are coming to USA illegally, we are taking people who have grown up around a dangerous and violent culture, whether it be lower class or criminals.
Criminals have no moral qualms about crossing the border illegally. Coming to USA means more money for them. Donald Trump, in this statement is saying Mexico is doing nothing to stop this exodus of Mexicans because it is getting rid of a lot of the worst ones.
Most illegal immigrants are genuinely good people. Unfortunately, there are a lot of the wrong types mixed in with these immigrants and this affects the Latin culture in USA in a very negative way.
Donald Trump is actually very pro-immigration. Including immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries. He wants to make it easier for good people to come to USA legally.
Is Donald Trump Racist Against Blacks?
After some searching leftist websites, the following is the very worst quote I could find Donald Trump ever saying about black people and he said it 25 years ago.
“Laziness is a trait in blacks.”
Even though famous people are under a spotlight their entire lives and in 25 years of speaking whatever pops into your head you are eventually going to misspeak, I will go into my personal experiences on the subject.
My best friend for about 7 years of my life was half black. His dad was black and had a rough childhood. His mom was white and was born and raised in Idaho. She had a great upbringing.
My best friend was hardworking, more than me actually. He was well respected among our nearly all white community. Why? It’s so simple and it’s exactly what Donald Trump was saying 25 years ago. Laziness is a trait in black culture and my friend was not raised in that type of culture.
I don’t want my black son leach from the government, I want him to work for his own money. The problem in USA with African American violence has nothing to do with the color of their skin and everything to do with the culture in the black ghettos. I hope that America can work on this culture. White racists need to change the way they think and black cultures need to stop promoting violence and unemployment. If we can do this, my son and children through the USA, will be able to grow up in a much better environment.
Is Donald Trump Racist Against Muslims?
Again, this makes no sense because Islam is not a race, but a religion. It also doesn’t make very much sense because Donald Trump’s son in law is Jewish. Jewish people, as most people know, come from the same part of the world as most Muslims.
“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,”- Donald Trump Campaign Release
In my travels I’ve met a lot of Muslim people. All of them were good people. The media paints this as Donald Trump being racist, when really he is just saying that we can’t endanger our own people so that people from the other side of the world can live in our country. Even if 0.1% of Muslims have bad intentions and we let in 100,000 Muslims, that means 100 of them could be trying to murder innocent people. If you’ve watch the news lately, you understand how much damage even one person can do, imagine another hundred.
Donald Trump is not saying to send back Muslim Americans because USA is their country too. He’s saying living in USA is a right only for American Citizens and it’s a privilege for the rest of the world. We shouldn’t take in another people if there is a significant culture from that country that wishes harm to Americans.
Donald Trump is putting American’s first, with this quote. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with acknowledging that we are at war with ISIS and their ideas and that we simply can’t always tell the difference between normal Muslims and ISIS Muslims.
We understand that the middle east has problems, but so does most of the world. Watch this video to put into perspective how many people in the world are actually living in poverty:
We can help with the problems in the Middle East much more effectively by helping them in their own lands. Not only will we do more good for them, but we will help keep our own people safe.
Donald Trump is About Improving American Life and Protecting American People Above All Else
Every one of his policies seem to be aimed at improving quality of life in USA and protecting American people. If you are not American, I can understand why you wouldn’t like Trump because he always put America first. But if you are American and you want to work and make America a better place for your children, then I would say he’s the obvious candidate.
Donald Trump’s Weaknesses are Also His Strengths
Donald Trump retaliates verbally too often. His greatest weakness, speaking exactly what is on his mind, is actually also his greatest strength. He is not feeding you a speech written by people controlling him, he’s telling you exactly what he believes.
He is verbally impulsive, but his actions tell a very different story. He’s never even taken a drink of alcohol, his business decisions are all logically weighed and I am 100% sure that the safety and future of our country are in better hands with Donald Trump than any of the alternatives. That’s why I’ll be voting for Donald Trump on November 8th.
