Respect for the God-given dignity of every human, regardless of race, ethnicity or other circumstances of their birth, is the essence of patriotism in The United States of America. Those who believe otherwise oppose the very idea of America.

How do we define and explain racism? Why are historians saying that in modern times, no US president has been this racially insensitive and has shown an outright disdain for people who are not white? How is it that our democratic ship is sailing away from equality for everyone, regardless of race, religion, color, creed, and sexual orientation? The intelligent people of the world must come together and stand up for our planet.

Is this the way to pay tribute to MLK weekend? What is going home in the land of the free and the home of the brave when journalists are heard shouting at #PresidentTrump, “Are you a racist?” as #shithole furor reverberates nationwide and worldwide, while The Party of Lincoln leadership stays silent or attempts to defend him?

Meanwhile, the NAACP is accusing Trump of "lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism." Their statement says Trump's "decision to use profanity to describe African, Central American and Caribbean countries is not only a low mark for this president, it is a low point for our nation." President Trump has said so many things on so many occasions that have rubbed the raw edges of race in America. But the White House rejected assertions that the president is a racist. http://nyti.ms/2EDxwEO

The American Civil Liberties Union says Trump "has been consistently honest about the white nationalism behind his immigration policies." Trump's comments were "directly contrary to the decision Congress made in 1965 to do away with the racist per-country quotas of the past."
