If I support Trump, am I a closet Racist?

Why so many polls predicted that Hillary Clinton will win, and then the ballots showed something very different? Is it because voters were afraid to tell anyone that they support Trump and his politically incorrect views? Were voters too afraid to tell anyone at work, collegues, etc that they support Trump not to be percieved as a racist? Does it make more than half of the country racists? Speak your true voice on DebateIsland.com, and tell us what you really think. Unless of course you are a racist and used your real name as user id, in which case you may want to tell us that you support Hillary and ex-Obama administration.

    If being racist means protecting american way of life and wanting to have middle class Americans achieve American Dream, then yes, I think so.

    Yes, that explains the polls vs ballots phenomenon. The fact is that Trump is targeting muslims and that in my opinion is racist.
  • I respectfully disagree with comments from Ale5 and inc4r. I support President Trump and I am not a racist. Trumps actions regarding immigration are not targetting a specific race or religion. It is targetting a specific list of high risk countries that happen to be in a certain region of the word. Trump's actions regarding Mexico are not racist either. It is addressing the issue of illegal immigration. The fact is that we have illegal immigrants of all races, and therefore I do not believe that it is a racist issue, but protectionist. Many of us are either immigrants ourselves, or first generation americans. We know what it means to work hard and be privilliged to be part of this country.
    When issue of protectionism and racist gets intertwined we start making incorrect assumptions that Trump's supporters are racists.
  • They are not, the supporters want to make America Great Again not full of drugs.
  • Trump supporters are not closet racists to any extent. As the other debater said, they want to make America great again. Not many want illegal immigrants, Terorists, drugs, weapons pouring into the country. If this continues to happen it may be to late to make America the way it once was.
  • Trump supporters are racist.
  • Trump supporters want to ban muslims and Mexicans due to stereotypes. That's racist.
  • No, they are not racists to any extent.
  • I believe that they are bot racists.
  • kakakksa_1911, It is not about banning muslims and Mexicans based on stereotypes, but based on the fact of not turning blind eye to illegal immigration, citing examples how at the same time there is sufficient evidence how that is causing harm to our country. In the case of Muslims, it is more about specific measures against specific 7 countries that happen to be mostly Muslim, but where Trump believes (with sufficient evidence) that they harbor terrorists that otherwise sould flow into our country. Protectionist policy is often consufed with racism, but we need to look at the facts please.
  • Yes, Trump supporters are racists.

    Thats an interesting and highly controversial debate. I don't agree that Trump supporters are generally racists, but it is true that many will share Trump's views that are normally considered as politically incorrect. I agree with islander507 re confusion on racism vs protectionist policies. That is a fine line though and will remain a gray area.
  • Trump supporters are not closet racists. Trump supporters may be much more educated than Clinton supporters and the protesters. Trump is trying to make America great again, people like you are trying to bring in illegal immigrants as well as Terorists. You probably don't even have a high school degree, like your fellow protestors and Clinton supporters.
  • Trump supporters are not racist.
  • Well, lansilo_user19 your comments are absolutely not backed up with any sort of evidence and simply full of "what trump says." I have a Masters in Business, probably unlike you and some Trump supporters. I am not a protester, and frankly part of the Republican Party. Due to the level Trump is at, I don't support him. Although, it was great Debating with you!

    Also, DebateIsland.com is the best debate website ever, it is literally amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It going to tell all of my fiends and colleagues.
  • Lancilo_user19,
    I agree with your points regarding overall position, but lets not make direct accusations targeting lakix_10291 levels of education.
    I do think that Trump supporters are not trying to keep away immigrants because of their race, and would feel the same way if these illegal or dangerous immigrants would be all white. So I reinforce my position that Trump supporters are not racists.
  • I do not agree, Trump supporters are racist in some ways.
  • No, Trump supporters want to make America great again.
  • Trump supporters are not racist.

    You are making a good point that we should respect your view, and I completely agree re your comment about DebateIsland.com - it rocks.
    I do think that you are making too general of an argument also that Trump supporters are racists. I simply disagree with that point. Many Trump supporters are not against people of other races, but just have a protectionist view - very different

  • Yes, Trump supporters are. Their beliefs are extremely controversial and simply racist to a very high level.
  • No, they are not racists.

    All of you Trump supporters who say that You are not racists: lets be honest, it is clearly targeting muslims. Maybe it makes you feel better about yourselves that you are not racists, but if you turn off the lights and no one is watching, you can admit it to yourself. I believe bulk of Trump supporters are in fact racists whether they admit it or not publically to themselves. Just being honest...

    Agsr, Lets get it straight 69% of biased trump supporters say they are not racists.  I think that this poll is not statistically significant since the sample is not a random sample, as people clearly self-selected to reply to this post.  The fact is, it represents discrimination based om race, religion, and stereotypes.  In my book, and wikipedia, that is the definition of racism.  
  • Most people have some level of racism. And many try to deny it. It exists because of the way we were raised or the personal experiences we've had. Trump has made it okay to express these feelings. I prefer to repress them and hope for change. 
  • Trump supporters are not racist.
  • agsragsr 355 PointsPremium Member

    Excellent point by bnyjstock1. Repression of feelings is always an option, and hoping for the best is better than eternal depression.
  • inc4tinc4t 105 Points

  • agsragsr 355 PointsPremium Member
    Premium Member
    Whether it is repressed or not the majority in this poll voted as no.
  • That's an extremely controversial debate. Are Trump supporters racist? Well, that could be debated or answered from different views. 
    Stand points:
    Illegal Immigrant- yes, they are racist.

    black American- yes, they are racist. Hillary was better than him, but Obama was much better than both of them.

    Other Black American- Obama didn't do much for African Americans, Hillary is as "good" as Trump is.

    White American (Working Class/ Middle Class)-
    Trump will make American Great again.

    Elderly White American- 
    Trump will restore American to how it was in the old days.

    Legal Immigrant- 
    Yes, he may be good.

    Upperclass American-
    Yes, He will be good for America and my wealth.

    Other Upperclass American-
    No, he will be bad for my company.

    So, I believe that everybody has a different perspective. For me, I think trump supporters are not racists.


  • ale5ale5 89 PointsPremium Member

    That is a good point - Trump stands for different things for different people. Making America great again, has a different definition of great to everyone.  I still think that he represents views that are racist, but not saying whether each supporter agrees to think of themselves that way
  • No, they are not closet racists rather bit racists at all. They want to make their country great again.

    There seem to be more Trump supporters here, but still 26% agreed on this poll that Trump supporters are racists.  Given the fact that most people wouldn't admit it to themselves or even more so publically about being a racist, I'd say there is a really strong support for this argument.
  • WhyTrumpWhyTrump 126 PointsPremium Member

    To me it is clear as night and day, Most Trump supporters are absolutely racists.  Covering up as nationalists, that is how Hitler started too.  Trump stands for racism, and the reason he got support is because of many Americans don't want to accept diversity.  They finally have a president who makes that okay for them to accept themselves for who they are -racists.  Atleast some have courage to be upfront about it, and some admit it to themselves.  Go ahead ask yourself - are you a racist? Only you can judge yourself. I agree with you ale5.

    I'd say the opposite is true.  Racist groups like Black Lives Matter and The Race (La Raza) were huge supporters of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

    No, we typically align with candidates on issues that are close to us.  You may disagree with Trump in many issues and agree with him in other, but you take the bad with good.  Calling everyone that supports Trump a racist is a mistake that over simplifies the complex views and concerns of people living in this country.  I know Mexicans that support Trump because of the perceived financial opportunities he will bring to the market, but disagree with his views on immigration.  Having said that, if I have to guess the political affiliation of a racist person, I would go with Trump supporter without hesitation.
  • No, Teump supporters have certain beliefs that apply to their candidate just like others have believes that apply to their candidates.

    @bruce706 , while I agree that it is inappropriate to generalize all Trump supporters as racists, I will argue

    2) I agree not all are racists,  but disagree that it is a minority.  It is a good chunk, but many may not even admit it to themselves, self- justifying their believes

    @WhyTrump Just as strong a case can be made that Obama was a racist, but Trump wasn't supported by active racist organizations like La Raza and Black Lives Matter.  Since Obama and Hillary both endorsed these organizations, doesn't that make them and their supporters  racists as well?

    @CYDdharta , that is a bit different.
    1) Obama is black, and had to deal with racism his whole life.
    2) Obama didnt insult all minorities, muslims, and mexicans
    3) huffington Post didn't publish a detailed article with 13 examples of why Obama is racist
    4)  King didn't come out supporting Trump with his comments like he did today. 
  • CYDdhartaCYDdharta 177 Points

    @WhyTrump ;

    1) True Obama had to deal with racism like all people do, but he decided to deal with it by being racist against white people, as my link points out.

    2) Trump didn't insult all minorities, Muslims, and Mexicans either

    3) HuffPo is about as biased a source as can be found on the internet. Your link is nothing more than a political hit piece made up of distortions and unverifiable accounts.  Of course HuffPo wouldn't do anything to undermine their guy, in fact they went out of their way to excuse almost all of Obama's many faults.  That doesn't mean that examples of Obama's racism don't exist, as my link makes clear.

    4) I have no idea what you are referring to, you'll have to be more specific.

  • CYDdhartaCYDdharta 177 Points

    @CYDdharta

    4) Nevermind, I just found the thread.  There is no relation to this thread, however; Trump's name wasn't even mentioned in the article referenced.

  • WhyTrumpWhyTrump 126 PointsPremium Member
    Premium Member
    @CYDdharta ;
    1) that is very different, but I would say calling Obama racist is a stretch.  Not sure if he loved white people, and he probably was a closet communist, but racist is too far.
    2) whether open, hints, subtle messages, these minority groups got upset by his racially targeted comments. We can argue shade of his racist remarks, in a corporate environment for example someone would send him to HR.
    3) Huff post is anti-Trump, I will give you that one.  However, that doesnt mean all 13 examples are false
    4) king article didn't mention Trump, but that is a good example of Right wing spectrum, and was clearly racist.

    are you arguing that trump supporters are not more likely to be racist, or if not all of them are racist? I would argue that "most" are racist to some level.
  • CYDdhartaCYDdharta 177 Points

    @WhyTrump

    1) I would say calling Trump a racist is a bridge too far.

    2) Most minority groups, by definition, are racist groups

    3) You are correct, they're not all false, some are simply inconsequential

    4) I disagree, the King article demonstrates nothing more than King's thoughts and beliefs.  Shall we also paint an entire party's beliefs with Sheila Jackson Lee's comments and say half the country doesn't know we haven't landed people on Mars yet, or that the Constitution is over 400 years old


    Undoubtedly there are many more racists, and more active racists on the left than on the right.  The right castigates and disavows their racists, the left embraces them.

  • VaulkVaulk 178 Points
    @kakakksa_1911 , So let's start here:
    Trump supporters want to ban muslims and Mexicans due to stereotypes. That's racist.
    Alright, let's break it down.

    1.  Muslim is not a race. 
    Muslim has never been a race, most likely never will be a race. To say that a stereotype of a "Religion" can be "Racist" is to suggest that all people of a particular religion are of one Race.  So, you've suggested that it's possible to be Racist against Muslims so I counter with "What Race are Muslims"?

    2.  Mexican is not a race.
    Mexican is a term that defines human beings who currently hold citizenship in Mexico.  To say that a stereotype of a "Citizenship" can be "Racist" is to suggest that all people of a particular Nationality are of one Race.  You've suggested that it's possible to be racist against Mexicans, so I counter with "What Race are Mexicans"?

    I look forward to your response.

    @ale5 ,

Maybe it makes you feel better about yourselves that you are not racists, but if you turn off the lights and no one is watching, you can admit it to yourself. I believe bulk of Trump supporters are in fact racists whether they admit it or not publically to themselves. Just being honest...
    I respect your opinion on this matter however, I can't get behind your logic.  What does Religion have to do with Race?  I'm no scholar here but I can logically deduce the following:

    1.  A racist is: A person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
    https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/racist

    2.  Since a Muslims is a person who practices Islam in some way, shape or form...then in order to be considered a Racist for targeting Muslims then all Muslims must be one Race.

    See the issue here?  Calling something "Racist" when it's not even possible that it could be slightly Racist is the problem.  The mainstream media has been feeding this stuff to people for so long that a good portion of our American Citizens have started buying into it.  Calling people Nazis for disliking something that's cultural, calling people Racist for not being accepting of a person's religion or ideas...these are becoming normal things in our society.

    ~~~~This is not Racism~~~~ and any attempt to shrug it off like it's no big deal to improperly label something one of the worst terms in history is how most people respond:

    "Oh well so it's not "Technically" racist but it's definitely not nice". ~ This is how people defend themselves for improperly calling someone a "Racist".  Would you use the word "Genocide" to describe a single murder?  Would you use the word "Furious" to describe someone who was "Annoyed" with something you said?  Of course not...but for some reason it's perfectly acceptable and defensible to call someone a "Racist" when their attitude is bias at best and has nothing to do with Race.

    @ale5, I honestly can't express how much we need more people like you, the mainstream media is mostly to blame for the misnomers flying around today.  It's so easy to get behind "That's Racist" because the word is so serious, it's a huge deal to be labeled a Racist and it can really damage your image.  I hope to see a movement in the future that will hold the media accountable for using "Racism" and "Racist" as labels when there's clearly no evidence of either.

    I don't like Trump, everyone can agree that he's...not a very well spoken individual and most likely engages his Mouth long before he engages his brain.  Is he harsh, yes.  Is he abrasive, yep.  Is he inappropriate, you bet.  Racist though...no I'm afraid not.

    @Logic,

    I'm not sure about the KKK's rally calendar but I also don't see any relevance of their Rally dates to the Presidential election.  Granted the KKK could easily be upping their Rallies but to suggest that a group's organized meetings are a direct result of the election of a U.S. President will require much more evidence than the existence of activity in a particular group.

    I haven't personally seen any evidence of Racism from our current President and would challenge any and all contrary opinion holders to bring forth said evidence.

    As @Vaulk said, just because KKK support Trump, that is not evidence of him being a racist.  He also made an amazing argument that discrimination against muslims and latinos is not racism either (even if proven).  @Logic, I would say innocent until proven guilty as far as Racism.

    @Vaulk  I'm a muslim, and trump banned some dangerous countries, And i'm totally fine with that. What i'm NOT at all fine with, is the fact tthat he banned some of tthe least dangerous countries, AND LEFT SAUDI ARABIA.  Trump is cutting off ties withy any country that can't bring in business.  He kept the most country that has brought terrorists, and left the ones that had none or a few.

    @Logic, I understand your point.  Again though, how is that racist?  If you're admitting openly that Trump is allowing some Muslims in but not others and the some he is letting in are from more dangerous places with more extremists than the ones he's keeping out...then you're essentially saying that this has nothing to do with Race and instead it's politically motivated...which wouldn't be an issue of racism.
  • melanielustmelanielust 204 Points
    @Vaulk I agree - I don't like Trump's ban, but it wasn't on a race or a religion, it was on countries, so that doesn't make the action racist. And if someone supports it, it doesn't make them racist.

    Ultimately, no one is racist unless they truly believe a group to be inferior. That has nothing to do with their political affiliation, or whether you support or at against certain political actions.

    @ale5 I am fine with Muslims being here, but not when they force sharia law on us and bring ISIS in.  Protectionism is the right word, not racism.

    @SuperSith89, agreed.  Just to point out that @Vaulk really did a great job to explain in this debate that it's not racism, and that's word is often misused

    @agsr  Yeah I didn't see that before posting.  He's a very good debater.
