    You would appear to want all discussions of racism brought to a complete standstill, until a human saint is located to lead us all. IOW, you wish people would stop talking about how white privilege benefits YOU.

    I find your 'tude to be selfish, sinful and shortsighted.
    I actually want no such thing.

    What I want is a reasonable discussion of racism based on clear objective standards of racism as oppose to your vague, flexible and constantly shifting definition of what racism is.

    I find you to be cowardly and uneducated and merely a hyperbolic shill who screams racism whenever you lose an argument.

    But like all repressive libtards you merely alter the definition of racism whenever it suits you to call anyone racist who points out inconvenient facts to you which you lack the intelligence to argue against.

    No you claim holding a certain standard is racist.

    Ok by your own definition you are the biggest of all racists.
    Wow. You are an intellectual moebus strip, sir.

    That post was Trumpesque in its gibberish level.

    I admire your skill at using the English language to make farting sounds, though. Have you considered a career in politics?

    Which means it is accurate and you understand it and hate it.

    Ford paid his workers a little extra so they could afford to buy the product, ensuring a solid fiscal base for the company. In many other ways he was a racist antisemitic thug, but an enlightened thug for his time. Nobody is all bad. Except maybe Trump.

    It was not a "little bit", I think the amount was something like double.

    Which means yes, I am receiving your implied message, conceding that I am correct but it would gall you to frankly admit it.

    I don't "hate" that you are dishonest. It's frustrating, but if you persist, I can easily add you to my ignore list.

    Again.

    Ford invented modern industrial practices and cared enormously for his workers' well-being, forbidding child labor, paying sick and vacation leave, and yes, setting wages high enough that they could consume his product. He was reviled by other capitalists of his era.

    I have been to the Henry Ford Museum many times, although not once after I learned of his virulent, lifelong antisemitism.

    But he did racially integrate his factories.

    A very complex historical figure.

    Kindly describe these "clear, objective standards of racism", so we can then measure Trump's conduct against them.

    BTW, there cannot be any universal agreement on which behaviors are racist. That's not how human interactions and human philosophy are made. Each of us (I hope) has a sense of right and wrong. IMO, racism is a horrible, evil sin.

    I think the companies which can be proven to have profited from the slave trade should pay restitution to as many black American descendants as can be found.

    Nobody I know IRL agrees with me. Doesn't alter my view on the unjust enrichment issue one dot or tiddle.

    I'm confident I'm making the best moral decision, and see my duty as harange-ing others to agree with me.

    All the accusations of racism in the OP are against Trump's father and from the 70's. Is that the best that you have?
