167 ways (so far) we know Donald has always been and continues to be a racist


That Donald is a racist has been obvious to anyone paying attention. His referring to Africa and Haiti as “shitholes” is merely the latest evidence.

Yesterday, Donald called Haiti and the entirety of Africa “shithole countries.” Donald’s language is hardly surprising from a man who was clearly racist before he won the Republican 2016 primary, was clearly racist going into the general election, and probably won the election in part because he is racist.

I’ve been tracking Donald’s words and deeds, as well as those of his Administration and key VIPs, since July 1, 2017. Between then and December 31, 2017, I tracked 708 instances of horrible behavior including, but not limited to, many examples of racism. In that time, I’ve counted 75 instances of immigrant hating and 142 examples of racism. Due to overlap between the categories (most, but not all, of the instances of immigrant-hating are also instances of racism), the total number of instances is 167.

Put another way, 23.6% of the instances horrible behavior I documented over the last six months were racist or demonstrated a hatred of immigrants.

Immigrant-hating and racism by Donald and his Administration, July through December 2017

The following is a complete list of each time that I recorded Donald or his people being racist or hating immigrants.
