Racism has stormed into this country through trump and his bigoted base who you are forbidden to criticize because they think it's protected speech. They are very uneducated, criticize then every chance you get!

No, racism is only alive and well thanks to trump and his uneducated supporters. Such as yourself, Tawana Brawley from CNN.

Uneducated supporters? The bluest parts of this city and others (Detroit, Philly, St. Louis, Baltimore) are the most dirty, violent, poor and uneducated. Explain that? Vote tampering perhaps?

You brought up ‘uneducated’ and now you don’t like it when the tables are turned. Serves you right for labeling people!

Maxipad Waters is a poverty pimp! That ain’t racist, she’s called on her ‘fans’ to attack conservatives. Nice! That’s what these fascists like to do. I can’t help it if she is of a certain persuasion, that ain’t my fault. I think Cuomo and Sanders are nasty too!
