Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 10, 2017

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Donald Trump: "Trump's not going to change. He knows he is where he is because of his appeal to racism and xenophobia. The people that want to divide the country are in his camp. They want to go back to the 18th century. Trump wants to move us back to 1952 but he's not Eisenhower -- who was the type of Republican that cared about the whole nation. ... Look what's going on with Trump in Alabama [where the president supports Roy Moore]. You have a guy like him but he's going to vote the way you want politically. That's more important than what he's accused of? People with that frightening viewpoint are still fighting a civil war. They have to be contained."

Kareem is correct. And Trump supporters agree with Trump's 1952 racial agenda. Though they would prefer 1852.

Once again, people have no clue what the difference is between racism and not being treated differently because of the color of their skin. Trump isn't catering to any specific group of people. If he did, that would be discrimination. But because he's not being discriminatory, he's being called racist. Yep, that's the state of our country today. People can have indifference to everyone but since "everyone" includes minorities, that person is called racist. I have a dream that one day minorities will let themselves be treated based on their character and not on their skin color. This country went from racist to preferential treatment and skipped the entire middle step where things were supposed to be balanced and everyone could live happy. Until there is a baseline that both sides can understand, this will never end. White people struggle hard and do not get a red carpet everywhere they go, regardless of what many minorities want to believe. And minorities struggle hard and do not get a red carpet everywhere they go, regardless of what anti-equal opportunity people want to say. It's too bad neither side wants to listen to the other and actually understand them or all of this would go away.

No one thinks trump is racist because he's mean to minorities, dumtake. People think he's racist because he's mean to minorities but not white racists.

"This country went from racist to preferential treatment and skipped the entire middle step where things were supposed to be balanced and everyone could live happy."

It only seems that way to people like you because you think minorities gaining in life comes at your detriment. We won't have racial equality in this country until morons like you die out or shed their ignorant world view.

Me too. Moore has said slavery was a good thing. That's 1852, not 1952.

I saw Kareem speak at an event once and the interviewer asked him why no one does the sky hook anymore.

"They care more about how they look than how they play" was his answer. Kareem has more insight than most and I respect him.

Same lie, same poster. I sometimes think this liar actually believes the crap he posts but then I realize, again, he is just a liar. He doesn't believe that garbage he just wants us to think he does. If we really believed he believes the garbage he posts he wouldn't be able to post anything here with ridicule. Humtake is a joke. I suspect he is a parody of a right wing idiot.
