Everyone's yelling lately about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does Slavery and Segregation ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling lately about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does stealing American Indian land and Irish need not apply for work in the 19th century ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling lately about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does Anti-Semitism and interning Japanese-Americans ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does Anti-Muslim and Anti-gay sentiment ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does Poor bashing and bigotry against Hispanics everyone mistakes for being illegal ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does sexism against women and fat bashing ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does "immigration reform" ring a bell when this country pretends that immigration is a problem that needs correction by putting in more roadblocks, limits, using safety as an excuse while boasting how this country was built by immigrants who subjugated the American Indians?

Everyone's yelling about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism. Does electing him because of it ring a bell?

Everyone's yelling about Donald Trump's bigotry and racism but every time Obama is mentioned what's noticed about him above all else? His race! What do they say? "He was the country's first Black President!" That's not only inaccurately racist but sexist as well. Barack Obama is NOT Black he's bi-racial! His skin color is the product of his father's more dominant genetics but his mother from Kansas was White! It's also sexist when people act like the only parent Obama had was his father. Had he been light like his mother people would've breathed a sigh of relief on his being able to "pass". Obama's dad ran out on the family when Obama was a kid. He was raised by his White single mother whom people refuse to acknowledge. Frankly I could care less his race. Both Black and White are subtly racist when his race, inaccurately portrayed, is always mentioned first! Barack's White mother is ignored by both Black and White and not being given credit, as most women are at being concidered important as parents. Why doesn't Obama get tired of always being looked on as race first then person!

When it comes to society's long record of racism and selective bigotry who are we kidding pretending to be sudden paragons of virtue in comparison to Donald Trump!
