    This Trump shit has been going on a LOT longer than I had realized

    A friend posted this youtube with Woodie Guthrie--and a more contemporary roots music group singing songs about Donald's father

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jANuVKeYezs

    “Ain’t Got No Home” and “Old Man Trump.” (Trump’s dad was such a racist, Woody wrote a song about it. Here are the lyrics so you can sing along.)

    I Ain't Got No Home, I'm just a-roamin' 'round,
    Just a wandrin' worker, I go from town to town.
    And the police make it hard wherever I may go
    And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.

    I suppose that Old Man Trump knows just how much racial hate
    He stirred up in that bloodpot of the folks in New York state
    He drawed that color line that we fought in the last war
    and we ain’t got no home in this world anymore
    (original last line of this verse was: here at his eighteen hundred family project)

    Beach Haven ain't my home! - No, I just can't pay this rent!
    My money's down the drain, and my soul is badly bent!
    Beach Haven looks like heaven where no black folks gone to roam,
    No, no, no, Old Man Trump! - Old Beach Haven ain't my home!

    Now as I look around, it's mighty plain to see
    This world is such a great and a funny place to be;
    Oh, the gamblin' man is rich an' the workin' man is poor,
    And we Ain't Got No Home in this world anymore.

    Yep, nothing like saying "Trump's dad was racist so that means Trump is racist!"

    Extreme fail at Logic 101. TDS should be a certified mental illness at this point.

    You guys are insane. You are looking to Trump's dad as proof Trump is racist, as if they both have a hive mind or something.

    When has the right EVER went after Obama's father and said, "Obama's father believed x! This means Obama does too!"

    There is sufficient evidence from the current Mr. Trump's documented speech, tweets, utterings and actions life to indicate he is a bigot. It is not surprising he may have learned it from his daddy.

    Whataboutism is a tool for mental incompetents and those suffering from the most virulent strain of TDS - unthinking adoration of their fuhrer.

    If Trump was a racist I would expect him to say something like, "I don't want these blacks rooting for me. I want them out of the Republican party. They belong with the Democrats."

    That's what a racist would say.

    No, we're not. I posted this not as evidence of genetic based racism but as a bit of human interest about Trump and his family.

    I come from a long line of people who really, truly believed that white was best. It got diluted a bit over the past few generations, though. It's altogether possible for people to think for themselves and to reach different conclusions than their parents and grandparents did.

    I know.

    as if they both have a hive mind or something.

    You mean the right never tried to claim that Obama was a secret Muslim? Heck, half the people I still know from my old home town firmly believe that and also believe that Obama wasn't born in the USA. There's this thing called Facebook. You should check it out. Also twitter.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial...f_Donald_Trump

    ...
    In 1973, Trump and his company Trump Management were sued by the U.S. Department of Justice for housing discrimination against African-American renters—a lawsuit which ended in a settlement.[7][8][9] The Justice Department sued again in 1978, claiming continued racial discrimination and a breach of the original agreement, but that case expired in 1982 without resolution.[10]
    ...


    Like father, like son. Half-life seems to be rather unaware of Trump's racist history.
