America's mainstream media is mainstreaming racism by giving Donald Trump a free ride on the issue. Reporters refuse to ask Trump about the time he demanded the execution of black teenagers and even published ranting full-page advertisements in New York City newspapers demanding that the teens be killed — The teens were found innocent of the crime they were accused of. More recently Trump has attacked Latinos, women, Arabs and so forth, and he has accused Obama of having a fake birth certificate and of not being a "real American." The mainstream media just smiles because Trump's bigotry is "entertaining" and increases their ratings.
White Supremacists LOVE Donald Trump — Here's 12 Reasons Why
Compiled by Ronald David Jackson
Reason 1: Trump Called for the Execution of Innocent Black Youth.
Donald Trump called for the execution of five black teens after they were arrested for rape in the famous "Central Park Jogger Case." The five youths were railroaded into prison after they were forced to give false confessions. They were eventually found innocent, but only after years in prison.

Reason 2: Trump is so racist, his supervisors use to hide his black workers whenever they knew he was coming.

they stayed hidden from his sight. (Photo by Gage Skidmore)
Black employees at the Trump Casino in Atlantic City were routinely kept out of sight whenever the real estate mogul entered the building, says one former employee.
A New Yorker magazine article about Atlantic City contained the story of a former Trump Casino worker about the way he and other employees of color were treated on the job when “the boss” was around.
“I met a bus driver named Kip Brown, who worked the Port Authority route, up and back each morning, for Academy Bus Lines. He had been at Academy for fifteen years and was No. 3 in seniority, out of seventy drivers in the region,” said writer Nick Paumgarten.
“Brown also used to work in the casinos, at the Showboat, bussing tables, and at Trump’s Castle, stripping and waxing floors,” he continued.
Brown said, “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor. It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”
Reason 3: Trump is a notorious "birther." In 2011 he insisted that president Barack Obama "was not a real American," questioned Obama's Christian faith, and spent money investigating the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate. Trump hasn't changed one bit since then — he's still pushing the birther myth:
Donald Trump: 'I really don't know' if Obama was born in the US
By Colin Campbell
Real-estate developer Donald Trump says he no longer has any interest in so-called birther theories.
But he's not backing down, either.
In a Thursday interview on CNN, the provocative GOP presidential candidate said he wouldn't admit he was wrong about questioning President Barack Obama's birthplace years ago.
"I don't know. I really don't know," Trump told anchor Anderson Cooper when asked whether he accepted that Obama was born in the US.
The Republican businessman was one of the most prominent people to cast doubt on Obama's birthplace before the president ultimately released his long-form birth certificate in 2011, which showed he was born in Hawaii. Before then, Obama was long dogged by conspiracy theorists who maintained he was actually born in Kenya and, according to them, ineligible to be president.
"He came up with this thing, all of a sudden, miraculously," Trump said of Obama on Thursday.
Trump Says he's not "morally obligated" to defend Obama against "He's a Muslim" claims from audience members — After claiming he couldn't even hear what the audience member said.

Donald Trump on Saturday said it is not his job to correct supporters' claims about the President, defending his decision not to take issue with a man who disparaged Muslims and said President Barack Obama is not an American.
The clown who claims "Obama is Muslim" and "not American" is typical
of the type of garbage that infests the Republican Party

Trump did not dispute the man's allegations made at a town hall event this week, and added that if someone criticized him to Obama, there would be "no chance" the President would come to his defense.
"Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don't think so!" he tweeted Saturday morning.

Reason 4: During his speech announcing his run for the presidency, Trump launched a vicious attack on undocumented immigrants from Mexico, calling them drug dealers and rapists.
Donald Trump Defends Calling Mexican Immigrants "Rapists"
By Jake Miller
Defying the parade of businesses that are cutting ties with him in the wake of his inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants, Donald Trump defended his remarks in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.
When Trump declared himself a Republican candidate for president last month, he warned that the U.S. is becoming a "dumping ground" for the world's problems.
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," he said. "They're sending people that have lots of problems...they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
Asked why he used the term "rapists" to characterize Mexican immigrants, Trump pointed to recent reports that as many as 80 percent of the female immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are sexually assaulted during the trip.
CNN's Don Lemon then pointed out that those reports document immigrants being raped during their journey across the border - not the immigrants raping people after they get here.
Reason 5: Trump's father was a violent member of the Ku Klux Klan, and Trump's white supremacist supporters are well aware of this. In fact they perceive that the only difference between Donald Trump and his father is that "The Donald" doesn't wear white sheets.
The corporate media went on and on about Barack Obama's birth certificate and his Kenyan father, but quickly moved on from Donald Trump's Ku Klux Klan father.
|Fred Trump: The father of Donald Trump was apparently a raging white supremacist back in the day.|
Trump's Dad Was Arrested In 1927 Ku Klux Klan Brawl With Police
A newly surfaced report from a 1927 edition of the New York Times suggests Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump's late father may have had a connection to the Ku Klux Klan.
surfaced Wednesday by the blog Boing Boing.
The Times article listed the arrestee's address as 175-24 Devonshire Road in Jamaica Estates, Queens. Past local news reports noted that the Republican presidential frontrunner's father (pictured above, third from the left) lived at that address. Donald Trump's German immigrant grandfather, who anglicized his own name to Fred Trump, died nine years before the incident occurred.
The Times reported that police said the brawl broke out because the Klan reneged on an agreement not to wear any of their symbols to the parade. The Klan members, for their part, accused the police of exceeding their authority in trying to keep them out of the parade, according to the report.
The elder Trump was born in 1905, which would put him in his early '20s when The New York Times covered the brawl. His wife, Mary Anne, didn't give birth to the couple's son Donald until 1946.
Reason 6: Trump surrounds himself with white supremacists.
Trump fired the aide only because he exposed the fact that Trump surrounds himself with racists like himself. The corporate media didn't make a big deal over the racist within the Trump camp. Yet it dragged Barack Obama through the mud relentlessly over statements made by the pastor of his church.
Donald Trump isn't the only person associated with his presidential campaign who has a tendency to make controversial comments about minorities.
Sam Nunberg, one of Trump's political advisers, has a personal Facebook page that features notes he's posted since 2007.
These updates, which are riddled with grammatical and spelling errors, contain many racially charged statements including one instance on August 25, 2007, where Nunberg wrote about calling Rev. Al Sharpton's daughter "N---!"
Nunberg is a lawyer who graduated from Touro Law Center in Long Island, New York. He is an associate of controversial Trump adviser Roger Stone.
Nunberg's LinkedIn page, he served as the cochair of "Students for Mitt" in New York City for Mitt Romney's 2008 presidential campaign while he was in law school. Nunberg's LinkedIn also says he worked for the Middle East Forum's Legal Project and the conservative nonprofit American Center for Law and Justice.
Trump's campaign-finance reports show Nunberg is one of eight people who were paid political advisers on his campaign from April through the start of this month. During that period, the reports show Nunberg received $15,139 from the Trump campaign.
Reason 7: Trump has been praised and endorsed by well-known white supremacists and these white supremacists have asked their followers to support Trump. Apparently they recognize a fellow white supremacist whenever they see and hear one.
He's 'The Best of the Lot' — Says Former KKK Leader David Duke.
|David Duke (left) leading a so-called Ku Klux Klan "border watch." Notice that white supremacists have a "thing" for the Confederate flag (right).|
By Jeremy Diamond
David Duke, the anti-Semitic former Ku Klux Klan leader, praised Republican front-runner Donald Trump for his immigration policy proposals and said Trump is "the best of the lot."
After ranting about "Jewish supremacy" and Jewish domination of the media, Duke took time out of two of his radio programs last week to talk up Trump's candidacy as a "great thing," praising the Republican candidate's plan to deport the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.
"Trump is really -- he's really going all out. He's saying what no other Republicans have said, few conservatives say. And he's also gone to the point where he says it's not just illegal immigration, it's legal immigration," Duke said last week on his radio show, also pointing to Trump's plan to put more restrictions on work visas to ensure Americans are hired before foreigners. Buzzfeed News first reported the comments on Tuesday.
Duke, who previously served in the Louisiana statehouse and ran for U.S. Senate in that state, did not endorse Trump and said Trump remains untrustworthy for his "deep Jewish connections" and support for Israel.
Neo-Nazi child molester declares support for Donald Trump as he’s sentenced to 50 years behind bars
|Longtime white supremacist and neo-Nazi August Kreis III showed his support |
for Donald Trump during his child molestation trial this week
By Tobias Salinger
Donald Trump picked up some support from a neo-Nazi child molester in a South Carolina courtroom Thursday, according to reports.
Longtime white supremacist August Kreis III showed jurors his “Vote for Donald Trump” sign during his trial on child molestation charges, The State newspaper reported.
A Lexington County jury convicted Kreis, 61, of one count of criminal sexual conduct involving a minor child and two counts of committing lewd acts on a child. The guilty verdict didn’t stop him from declaring his love for the billionaire Republican presidential contender just before a judge sentenced Kreis to 50 years in jail.
“I will always hate the Jew,” Kreis told the court, according to the State. “This government is run by an evil group of people, and please — vote for Trump!”
Reason 8: White supremacists have watched Trump supporters launch violent attacks on anti-trump protesters and even homeless people — And Trump has endorsed these attacks.
"They love this country and they want this country to be great again."
—Donald Trump on the racists who committed a hate crime.
Donald Trump’s Appalling Reaction to a Hate Crime Committed in His Name
|Photo by Gage Skidmore.|
Two Boston men were charged Wednesday in the beating of a homeless Mexican man. The victim was allegedly sleeping outside a subway station when brothers Scott and Steve Leader rummaged through his things, then started beating him around the face and neck and hitting him with a metal pole. One witness heard the brothers laughing as they walked away.
Here's what police say Scott Leader told them to justify the assault: "Donald Trump was right — all these illegals need to be deported."
Here's what Donald Trump said when told about the alleged assault (according to the Boston Globe) at a Wednesday press conference in New Hampshire: "I haven't heard about that. It would be a shame, but I haven't heard about that." Then the crowd buzzed, and Trump added: "I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate. I will say that, and everybody here has reported it."
In other words, Trump, asked a question about an alleged hate crime committed by two of his followers, pivoted to praising the "passion" of his followers.
Donald Trump Approves Of Supporters Who 'Roughed Up' Black Lives Matter Protester
By Kim Bellware
Donald Trump approves of the way his supporters responded to a Black Lives Matter protester, reportedly beating him during a Saturday rally in Birmingham, Alabama.
"Maybe he should have been roughed up," Trump said during a Sunday morning call-in appearance on "Fox & Friends." "It was absolutely disgusting what he was doing."
A CNN reporter captured video of the Saturday incident in which a protester was reportedly punched and kicked after he was tackled to the ground by attendees or security at Trump's rally. At least one onlooker yelled, "Don't choke him! Don't choke him!" according to The Washington Post.
Trump is heard in the video yelling, "Get him the hell out of here!"
Reason 9: Trump has called anyone who shows empathy toward black people and black activists "disgusting and weak," and he says he'd "say nothing" if anyone in his audience spoke ill of black people.
Trump Calls Democrat Candidate 'Disgusting, Little, Weak, Pathetic Baby' for Apologizing To Black Lives Matter
|Illustration by DonkeyHotey.|
Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.
In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump said that the former Maryland governor did not need to say he was sorry.
“And then he apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby. And that’s the problem with our country,” Trump said, according to a clip aired on “Fox and Friends.”
O’Malley, in fact was “politically incorrect” with his apology, Trump remarked.
“How can you apologize when you say black lives matter — which is true — white lives matter, which is true — all lives [matter] — which is true. And then they get angry because you said white and all…we don’t want you to mention that. What’s he need to apologize for?” Trump asked.
O’Malley’s apology came last month after he responded to protesters shouting “black lives matter” during his speech at Netroots Nation by saying that, “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.” Critics on the left said the remarks showed a lack of understanding of what the Black Lives Matter movement is all about.
Republican hopeful says his reaction to an anti-Muslim audience member would have been the same had the person rejected African Americans
By Jon Swaine
Donald Trump on Sunday defended his failure to challenge a supporter who made anti-Muslim remarks at one of his presidential campaign rallies, by saying he would have responded the same way if the man had attacked black people.
Speaking as new polls indicated that he continues to lead the Republican 2016 primary field, Trump rejected suggestions that he was wrong to indulge the man, who told him in New Hampshire on Thursday: “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims.”
Asked on CNN if he would have felt moved to correct the supporter if the man had said “we have a problem in this world, it’s called blacks”, Trump refused to back down.
“No, I would have probably just listened to his question,” he said. “I mean, who am I?”
Trump has been sharply criticised for his response to the supporter, who stated President Obama was Muslim and claimed “we have training camps, growing, where they want to kill us” while asking the opening question at the rally in Derry.
“A lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there,” Trump replied. “We’re going to be looking at that and plenty of other things.”
Interviewed later on ABC News, Trump refused to say whether or not he believed Obama was a Muslim born overseas. The property tycoon has in recent years been a leading light in the so-called “birther” movement based around the conspiracy theory that the president was born in Kenya.
“I don’t get into it,” Trump repeated on Sunday, when asked if Obama was born in the US. “Frankly, it’s no longer of interest to me.”
Reason 10: Trump had one of America's most noted and influential Latino journalist thrown out of his press conference. Trump supporters often insult Latino protesters by telling them to "go back to Mexico" — even when they are American citizens. These racist incidents are often televised and draw even more white supremacists to Trump.
Trump Teaches a Latino Journalist the Meaning of "White Power"Journalist Jorge Ramos asks Trump about his policy regarding the forced removal of undocumented citizens from the
United States. Trump has Ramos removed from press conference (bottom). Screen captured from video.
By Janell Ross
Donald Trump, derider of Mexican illegal immigrants, insulter of POWs and GOP front-runner, kicked journalist Jorge Ramos out of a press conference Tuesday evening.
The billionaire later allowed Ramos back into the press conference, where the two engaged in several lengthy exchanges that dominated the remainder of the event. But none of those exchanges provided the moment that will be repeated in endless loops on cable TV, shared on social media and discussed in Hispanic TV-watching households across the country.
The lasting image will be that of Ramos -- who serves as Univision's lead anchor and is effectively one of the (if not the) most powerful newsmen on Spanish-language TV -- being hustled out of the room after trying to ask Trump a question. Ramos, whose nightly newscast has been known to post ratings that top those of all three major English-language network news programs, has a history of holding presidential candidates very close to fire on issues he believes to be of deep concern to Latinos, such as immigration.
The problem at the press conference Trump held in Iowa late Tuesday began when Ramos stood just as Trump called on another reporter.
Ramos, who spoke without the aid of a microphone, could be heard insisting that he had a right to ask a question. Then, he can be heard making reference to the implausibility of deporting 11 million people -- a key feature of an immigration policy proposal Trump released earlier this month.
"Excuse me -- you weren't called...Sit down...Sit down...Go ahead," Trump said, pointing to another reporter.
Then, turning his attention back to Ramos, Trump said, "No you don't. You haven't been called. Go back to Univision."
Reason 11: Trump has shown a fanatical willingness to deny constitutional rights and freedoms to anyone who could be perceived as "non-white." He has called for the torture of Muslim terror suspects and the placement of all Syrians in some sort of "national database."
Donald Trump wants to create database for Syrian refugees, surveil mosques, bring back waterboarding
By Dylan Stableford
Donald Trump hit the talk-show circuit Sunday morning armed with a dizzying display of defiant declarations, double downs and fresh disses.
On ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” the Republican frontrunner called for surveillance of U.S. mosques and the creation of a database of Syrian refugees in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris. And Trump again would not rule out creating a registry for all Muslims.
“Are you unequivocally now ruling out a database on all Muslims?” asked Stephanopoulos.
“No, not at all,” Trump said before reiterating his plan for a database to track Syrian refugees accepted into the United States.
“We have no idea who these people are,” Trump said. “When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if it’s a Trojan horse. And I definitely want a database and other checks and balances. We want to go with watch lists. We want to go with databases.”
Trump said he’s skeptical of statistics that show most of the Syrian refugees flooding into Europe are women and children.“When I look at the migration and the lines and I see all strong, very powerful looking men, they’re men, and I see very few women, I see very few children, there’s something strange going on,” Trump said.
At a rally in Birmingham, Ala., on Saturday, Trump called for the “surveillance of certain mosques if that’s OK.”
“The people that are involved in those mosques, they know who the bad ones are and they know who the good ones are, but they don’t talk,” he said Sunday. “We have to surveil the mosques.”
Trump also said he would “absolutely” bring back waterboarding as a form of interrogation for suspected terrorists.
Reason 12: Trump has repeated bogus and racist statistics about "black crime." Exactly the kind of bogus statistics perpetuated on Neo-Nazi websites like "Stormfront."
That Racist Trump Tweet About Blacks Killing Whites Isn’t Just False — It’s Neo-Nazi Propaganda
Donald Trump capped a week that found him flirting with fascism by sharing a blatantly false, racist graphic that apparently originated with a Hitler-admiring neo-Nazi.
The Republican presidential frontrunner tweeted an image Sunday afternoon that claimed 81 percent of white homicide victims are killed by blacks and 97 percent of black homicide victims were killed by other blacks.
"@SeanSean252: @WayneDupreeShow @Rockprincess818 @CheriJacobus pic.twitter.com/5GUwhhtvyN"
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 22, 2015
The graphic cited the Crime Statistics Bureau in San Francisco as its source — although that does not exist and the statistics are, quite simply, made up.
In reality, the FBI shows that 82 percent of white homicide victims were killed by other white people and 15 percent of white homicide victims were killed by black people, and 91 percent of black homicide victims were killed by other black people.
So where did the image and the bogus statistics come from?
Blogger Charles Johnson, of Little Green Footballs, was unable to determine its source through a Google Image search or tineye.com — but he was able to find the earliest tweet using the graphic.
