How many times will the media ask the same questions about racist beliefs before the fact-checking process precedes an interview?
Being asked the question is reasonable, it is a topic actively in the public discourse. As smart reporters, we expect there to be research in advance of the interview and certainly a gathering of facts within the original context. Nonetheless, the media promote the topic of racism and bait the President. Do you think that this question has been asked and answered sufficiently? Write to us with your findings and facts.
“No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
This is a plain declaration made by Donald J. Trump on August 14, 2017.
Most Americans are Not Racist
There are horrible exceptions and in a country of over 330 million people, if 1% express racist beliefs, that is 3.3 million people. But focus on the 99% who are not racist and that means that over 326 million people are living reasonably in society. We celebrate the 99% and vigilantly strive to press out racism and bigotry when it occurs. Not by might, but by better dialogue within families, communities, businesses, and society. That's what makes America great - we progress. We guide, we forgive, and we move forward, together.
