What Trump doesn't say that we all want to hear him say is "Goodbye!"

Systemic racism must end.

America is the least racist country in the world. Millions of Africans want to come here.

Our last president was black. What are you talking about?

That's a tan line. Wanna see mine? :D

Fortunately there are more of us who want to see him serve a second term.

Be very careful about what you wish for...

You really should get out a bit more.  Perhaps start by applying for a passport.  Your statement is one of the most nonsensical I have seen in many a moon.

I see you're looking forward to Trump's re-inauguration, too!

Welcome to Team MAGA.

It'd be hard for any particular country to claim "least racist" status, whatever that means anyway. But the US can't be that bad if millions from the developing world want to to move there.

Lefties rely do need to get off the racism bandwagon. It doesn't make them look very bright.

Serrano claimed that Trump has been the best Prez since Lincoln, although he might be better since Abe didn't have as many problems (apart from that civil war thingy). When you've come this far and invested so much wasted pride, you just have to keep riding the crooked train until it crashes

"America is the least racist country in the world" is a statement by one of the majority who through a life of privilege doesn't realize just how racist America is.

Sorry, I'm missing the logic here. How exactly would this show America is not racist?

You might want to read my post again You might note that I didn't say the US isn't racist. Are you claiming that the entire country is racist, or just a certain percentage of the population?

Here it is again, because I'm nice :-) :

Lefties rely do need to get off the racism bandwagon. It doesn't make them look very bright.

It doesn't prove that the US is or isn't racist, it simply suggests that the motivations of millions form the developing world have various reasons for wanting to migrate to the US legally or otherwise, and those motivations trump any concerns they may have about the US a racist a nation as a whole.

And take note of the last line, just to ensure this isn't merely an isolated incident.

America is the least racist country in the world. Millions of Africans want to come here.

The people who say that are not the ones who experience the daily racism in their lives.

"Millions" of Africans believe that America is the home of the free, until they try and arrive.

In 2017, the top country of origin for new immigrants coming into the U.S. was India, with 126,000 people, followed by Mexico (124,000), China (121,000) and Cuba (41,000).

Not many immigrants come from Africa.

 "Between the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 and 2007, an estimated total of 0.8 to 0.9 million Africans immigrated to the United States, accounting for roughly 3.3% of all total U.S. immigrants during this period"

But many, hundreds of thousands of African Americans have left America for Africa or have applied for dual nationality.

Ok, I'll re-write my question then:

But the US can't be that bad if millions from the developing world want to to move there.

Sorry, I'm missing the logic here. How exactly would this show America is not "not that bad" racially?

Does this not show that trump is just a coward?

A grumpy old man playing the whiny victim that nobody really likes, so he wants the rest of the country to feel the same way!

I hope and pray that Trump is an aberration, and not the new normal.
