Donald Trump’s Win Wasn’t About Racism

Already, liberals are trying to push the narrative that Donald Trump’s win was propelled by racist Americans.

“This is a candidate who ran on a clearly racist message, attracting people with clearly racist views. And he won,” wrote Vox’s German Lopez.

“This was a white-lash against a changing country,” said CNN’s Van Jones. “It was white-lash against a black president in part.”

New York Times contributor Roxane Gay wrote about being “stunned” by the results: “I was confident, not only because of who Mrs. Clinton is. I was confident because I thought there were more Americans who believe in progress and equality than there were Americans who were racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, and homophobic.”

But the facts show otherwise.

“Trump performed stronger among black and Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did as the Republican nominee in 2012, according to NBC exit polls,” NBC News reported.

“On average, the counties that voted for Obama twice and then flipped to support Trump were 81 percent white,” reported The Washington Post, making it almost certain some of Trump’s white voters were people who had voted for President Barack Obama—not exactly the hallmark trait of a racist.

As a New York Magazine headline put it: “Trump Won a Lot of White Working-Class Voters Who Backed Obama.”

I for one am so sick and tired of the lies.
I have a few questions.
Some idiot evangelical whined in a blog "I dont know if I want to be one anymore how could they all vote for trump?
Then the MSM stated "15% of hispanics voted trump"

Where are they getting these made up figures from?
When I registered for voting no one asked me what my religion was.
Did they ask every single hispanic that voted and then did the math?
No one called me and asked me what my religion was and who did I vote for.

As I see all this outrageous BS finger pointing, people labeling crap, all I can think is "how frigging stupid the population" really is

No wonder Hillary called people a basket of losers. I can see her point.

This was a vote to undo the damage done by the Democratic Party, which has done more do foul the prospects of people of color than any other.
