    It would only be racist if a Republican said it.

    The RACIST term is thrown about way too often.

    Humor me, how is Trump a RACIST?

    It's best to avoid any reference where a black person is cast as a white man's servant. But even if the comment was racist, why does Hillary have to apologize for it? She didn't say it. Should Trump have to apologize for the staple holes in his wife's stomach?

    Nothing racist about it. Obama was a rookie compared to the Clintons.

    I wait for the day when blacks and whites can discourse freely with each other without racial implications. Obviously, that day hasn't yet come.

    Yes. Because that is the strategy she thinks is the best course to get elected. It has nothing to do with what she actually cares about

    It's this kind of apologetic spin that the left uses very selectively. If Bill Clinton says a black guy would have been carrying his bags, oh no that's not what he meant, not racism no, the farthest thing from it! But if a republican were to say the same thing... lump him right in with the KKK. Don't think even regular voters are so stupid they don't see through this kind of bullshit.

    Don't hold your breath. It'll probably happen, but i think Sunni and Shia have a better chance at that.

    That's some serious race bating logic there, ultra.

    Nothing to do with locuation in regards to popular sports reference and everything to do overt racism, right?

    Hillary would be wearing an orange jumpsuit right now if it didn't.

    I love how the justification works so well when it's a Democrat. :)

    Suddenly she is a champion fro gay people too (opposed gay marriage until it was convenient to flip in 2013)

    Divide people into different classes, give them something to be angry and outraged for, "feel their pain", encourage group think.

    Still don't have enough votes? Import some from other countries and set your party up for generations
