    WRONG; Trump never tweeted anything that was racist. I have posted the tweet numerous times for you. Yet all we get are lies and deflections from you. We get it, you have a severe mental condition and TrumpDerangementSyndrome which is preventing you from being able to show any honesty or integrity with your remarks.

    If Trump tweeted that Obama should go burn his big-ass lips on a crack pipe, you'd say he never mentioned race.

    #whataboutism. Now STFU; it's obvious you can't make a coherent argument and can't even remember what you posted in the same thread.

    There you go with the strawmen again; is that all you have are strawmen and lies snowflake. I am still waiting for you to show me what part of Trump's tweet was racist. Still flailing and deflecting I see.

    #whataboutism is when you bring up something else to change the subject. I've been very consistent in saying that criticizing the government does NOT mean you hate America. So obviously I don't think the Squad is Anti-American.
    Now with that being said, why is it ok when Trump criticizes the American government?

    The n-word isn't racist either. It is simply the African term for 'black'.

    No, it's not. Where did you get that from? It's a corruption of the word "Negro," which means black in Spanish.

    And yes, it is racist.

    No, whataboutism is about an extreme argument fallacy, not a redirection fallacy.

    False equivalence fallacy. The Squad is not just criticizing Trump (and making stuff up about him), they desire to overthrow the Constitution of the United States and replace it with a fascism by oligarchy.

    It is ok to criticize the government. It's quite another to try to overthrow it.

    No. Spain is not part of Africa. The word there is 'niger', sometimes spelled with two 'g's. No, it is not racist in and of itself. It simply means 'black' or 'dark'.

    It's all they got with unemployment lower than ever for minorities, they are trying to shore up the base! They have no ideas on how to solve anything, thus they keep running on the same tired old B.S, it is so surprising that more people can't see it!

    The origins is from what the Egyptians called Pharaohs. Egyptian Pharaoh was seen as a representation of the sun and the sun god. The original Pharaohs who were pure Black Africans SAW BLACK SKIN AS SACRED AND A DIRECT BLESSING FROM THEIR sun gOD, aten. If you want please research N-G-R (Net-ger). You will find that racist corrupted the term to use it to insult, degrade, enfuriate.
