In the video above, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio speaks with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and defends his belief that Donald Trump is racist. It’s a position that most of us on the left will never dispute. The average Donald Trump supporter on the other hand? Yeah, not so much.
The average Donald Trump supporter will say that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio is wrong to say that Donald Trump is racist. Instead, they’d just call Bill de Blasio a “nigger lover,” who hates white people, given that his wife is black. And when you call them on it, they’ll say that there’s nothing racist about anything they said, while accusing you of being racist towards them. You know, because, calling out racism is the new racism.
Stupid question: Was Bill de Blasio wrong?
