    It doesn’t even matter if Muslims are the most likely to do this proportionately - you still don’t generalise to the whole.

    They identify themselves as Islam us. That is what the I in ISIS stands for. Islamic state.

    How do you want them described when they call themselves Muslims. How do you want them describe when they shout praises to their God as they murder innocence. What is the political correct way of identifying a group that a self identifies as Islamic

    Where did I say they weren’t Muslims? Try reading the post again.

    We don't have to keep reiterating that "it's not all Muslims." That's understood.

    And the KKK self-identify as Christian.

    May I please roughly quote you:
    "How do want to describe their prayers as they make plans to foster their racist agenda and as they murder innocents?"

    Actually its the demonstrable laundry list of actions that, altogether, suggest some pretty unequal treatment of races.
    TKValentine, previous to the election, posted the list several times and I put it up myself at least once.

    Please don't expect me to post it again. It as it's already been shared plenty of time and there comes of a point where it appears more like willing ignorance than curiousity to know.

    I follow what Trump says, and have yet to see an example of genuine racism. It's more white liberals conditioning the populace to tiptoe around the subject of race. More of what we don't need.

    FYI, I'm sure you know he existed BEFORE he was president, or even thinking to be president...even before his TV show he existed. It was during those times where he did some not so great things.

    It's not "white liberals conditioning" anyone. It's about individuals recognizing maltreatment when it smacks them in the face. Sadly, too many people have lost that power of discernment.

    Racism to me is when a white person calls a black person the n-word. Trump hasn't done that. Black people have worked and continue to work with Trump.

    1) Your definition of racism is severely lacking.
    2) "FOR" Trump, don't kid yourself. In Trump's mind, nobody works "with" him ever. Everyone is a subordinate.

    It was only a temporary ban:

    "Donald Trump called Monday for a "total and complete shutdown" of the entry of Muslims to the United States "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."

    In a statement released by his campaign Monday afternoon, Trump included recent poll findings that he says show that a sizable segment of the Muslim population has "great hatred towards Americans."

    "Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension," Trump is quoted as saying in the statement. "Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life."

    Trump calls for ‘total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States’

    Fine. He's failed to deliver the promised total temporary ban...

    The courts got involved because his opponents put up resistance. They should be happy that what they were opposed to didn't come about.

    Amused, certainly. "Happy" will be when his loyalists muster enough courage to admit when he's failed at something.

    It's much more than that, although many still believe that racism is only something a white person can display against a black person, which is how so many black people are able to wield the racism card against white people in discussions so effectively.

    However, here is what the dictionary defines it as:

    : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
    : a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles: a political or social system founded on racism
    : racial prejudice or discrimination

    Definition of RACISM
