“It is now fashionable to say that America is racist. That is a lie,” said Nimrata [Nikki] Haley at a “Trump Cult” meeting last night in a convention that is featuring many Trumps and a whole whack of outright lies, according to several fact checkers in America, including the Business Insider which is an American media outlet usually well briefed on such fact checking techniques.
Trump-Cult — FPMag is referring to a subset of the Republican Party and what some Republicans are emphatically saying, “The Trump Party is not the Republican Party” and others are calling a “cult”. Nevertheless, the event this week that nominated Donald Trump is called the “Republican National Convention (RNC)”, and thus FPM.news acknowledges with respect, the passionate inputs of various Republicans who commented for this article.

Two things come across from the RNC. The Trump Campaign seeks to combat its reputation as a racist Administration, and Trump is getting his quirky message across that he is a victim of the “deep state”, which allegedly is the opposition which apparently has criticized him.
“Even after nearly four years this man has not figured out how democracy should work,” said several observers.
Shooting arrows dripped in hate for the political opposition, very much like Nicolás Maduro’s rants, this angry, condescending person who is the National Chair of Trump Victory Finance Committee, screamed at America which she apparently thinks is a collective of doddering old dudes who cannot hear well. But honestly, hearing impairedness is an American issue and not helped by screaming at the sufferers. The Trump COVID-19 response has (tragically) killed most of the oldest American seniors, typically with natural hearing loss owing to aging but most COVID-19 survivors are able to hear normally, maybe some with hearing aids, hopefully, comfortably, turned down a little when this cultist screamed her hate for the opposition. Readers will be updated here (FPMag.net/COVID-19) if there is a statistical change.

Timing could not have been worse for the “We are Not Racists” Trump-chant
At the same time the world watched a video of Kenosha City Police holding a tall Black man by his shirt and shooting him seven times in the back with a semi-automatic handgun, Trump wants to coach people to say, “We Are Not Racists in America”.
Mr. Jacob Blake was shot in the back while near his home, by White police officers in Kenosha Minnesota, as if the George Floyd killing was not enough for one summer.
Mr. Jacob Blake is paralyzed at this juncture. Three of his children who were sitting in the family car as a cop restrained Mr. Blake by grabbing and holding his shirt while shooting him in the back seven times less than a meter from the children’s faces.
“Mr. Blake has endured many surgeries and there will be more to come,” say his doctors.
The children are being given care according to Mr. Blake’s family lawyer. What care can possibly fix what has happened to the little darlings’ minds?
America is a Racist Nation and Nikki Haley is the liar, not the people she is calling liars.
In this racist shooting wherein the victim, Jacob Blake, may never walk again, it is barely possible for some people to contain their anger although protestors in Minnesota have exercised restraint and their anger has been vented through loud voices and determined gestures of anger and frustration. They are coping with heartbreak and the fear, “will I be next?”.
The number of gauges that determine America is a racist nation are at least more than two dozen according to a Business Insider Report (with 26 charts) which used professional and business management statistics; “unemployment rates of Blacks vs. Whites”; “CEOS by race and ethnicity”; “Black Members of Congress over time”; and “wage gap between Whites and Blacks”.
The conclusion is devastating to the Trump subset of the Republican Party‘s argument last night that America is not a racist country. America is very much a racist nation, to the core.
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly…… ….and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how…. ….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements! Donald Trump on Twitter.

As Jacob Blake lay in a hospital bed awaiting his next surgery, a Black athlete who played college football for the University of Georgia claimed Monday he is Trump’s friend of 37 years. He says he knows Trump is “no racist”.
- “Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists;”
- “immigrant rapists” who are “bringing crime” and “bringing drugs” to the USA;
- snatching babies from migrant women’s arms, putting babies and children in cages as criminals, rapists and thugs;
- “ban Muslims from coming to America;”
- “Obama isn’t American, he’s Black Muslim,”
- “China virus, Kung Flu;”
- speaking about Haitians and Africans, “Why are we having all these people from sh**h*le countries come here?”
- Trump’s retweeted posts assume co-ownership with white supremacists and neo-Nazis speaking horrid diatribes of White Supremacy;
and others of Trump’s racist ‘remarks’ must have escaped Mr. Herschel Walker who also described Trump as a victim.
In his 24 August speech to the Republican National Convention, Herschel Walker spoke of Donald Trump as a man who “understands that they [janitors, security guards, and waiters ] are the people who make this country run. They clean, they cook, they build, they drive, they deliver.”
“It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people call Donald. The worst one is racist. I take it out as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37 year friendship with a racist.”
It is interesting that Walker portrays Trump as a “victim” in all this as the Floyd family grieves over the 25 May 2020 loss of George Floyd (read: The Week George Died, hearts were broken around the world.). As the Trump-scripted words tumbled from Herschel’s mouth, Jacob Blake’s family, especially his little children, shed tears and cried themselves to sleep (according to an uncle) wondering if their daddy will “make it”.
It’s hard to understand how Trump pushes this notion of Trump always being a victim no matter what is happening, but “few normal people noticed that footballer talking because anyone with small children or young grandchildren was likely very nearly in a virtual coma themselves, right along with Jacob, sweating bricks until they knew the Blake children would have a father or not,” reported Sharon Santiago who has been discussing reactions and sampling comments.
A number of Institutions see the racism and contemplate remedial action.
According to Wikipedia authors, “Racism in the United States has existed since the colonial era, and it involved laws, practices and actions that discriminated against various groups or otherwise adversely impacted them based on their race or ethnicity, while most white Americans enjoyed legally or socially sanctioned privileges and rights which were denied to members of other races and minority groups. European Americans—particularly affluent white Anglo-Saxon Protestants—enjoyed advantages in matters of education, immigration, voting rights, citizenship, land acquisition, and criminal procedure throughout American history.
“Groups which were especially impacted by racism included non-Protestant immigrants from Europe, including the Irish, Poles, and Italians, who were often subjected to xenophobic exclusion and other forms of ethnicity-based discrimination in American society until the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
“Historically, Hispanics have experienced continuous racism in the United States despite many having European ancestry.
“Middle Eastern groups such as Jews, Arabs, and Iranians have faced continuous discrimination in the United States, and as a result, some people who belong to these groups do not identify as, and are not perceived to be, White. African Americans faced restrictions on their political, social, and economic freedoms throughout much of United States history.
“Native Americans have experienced genocide, forced removals, massacres, and discrimination. In addition, East, South, and Southeast Asians along with Pacific Islanders have been discriminated against.” —Wikipedia (Racism in the United States)
American Historian Matthew D. Lassiter
On the subject of racially segregated communities and schools, buses and public places, Historian Matthew D. Lassiter stated clearly the effect from the late 1960s and early ’70s:
“The suburban politics of middle-class warfare charted a middle course between the open racism of the extreme right and the egalitarian agenda of the civil rights movement, based in an ethos of color-blind individualism that accepted the principle of equal opportunity under the law but refused to countenance affirmative-action policies designed to overcome metropolitan structures of inequality.”
The Brookings Institute on American Racism
According to the Brookings Institute, “It would be naïve to think that data will change many individuals’ minds on this topic, but nonetheless, there is substantial evidence that Trump has encouraged racism and benefitted politically from it.”
The Brookings report continues to explain that, “First, Donald Trump’s support in the 2016 campaign was clearly driven by racism, sexism, and xenophobia. While some observers have explained Trump’s success as a result of economic anxiety, the data demonstrate that anti-immigrant sentiment, racism, and sexism are much more strongly related to support for Trump.”
Most American Institutions canvassed have a self-observation mandate, modus and speak candidly.
The thoughts of these American traditional stalwarts in research and reportage are important, because they are Americans and claim to have the capability of self observation at least as institutions which is the first step in solving the problem, yet another consensus.
Several American institutions have clearly stated that solving the racism problem has as its first step the convincing of Americans that racism is an inherent character flaw of the nation and that until it is acknowledged as an impediment to future prosperity derived from global cooperation and trade, it shall not be solved to maximum gain.
Look at Apple, and rows of Asian and African technologists among the best and the brightest designer desks around the world.
An example of how tolerance, understanding and an enthusiastic approach to embracing different cultures, is Apple which hit a market cap of $2 trillion US dollars last Wednesday, doubling its valuation in some 28 months to become the first publicly traded U.S. company to reach that lofty level.

US-based CNBC Business reports that “based on a share count of more than 4.275 billion, Apple broke the barrier just before 11 a.m. ET, when its price rose to $467.77″
How does Apple fit in this discussion? Apple phones and most other products are made in China—made very well in fact with excellent quality, value, and assortment. Moreover, Apple devices are sold to far more non-Whites around the world than to White Americans.
The point is, says nurse Karinna Angeles who is a big fan of IPhones, “the correct approach for American leaders would be to acknowledge the problem and explain how American tolerance, open-mindedness, and quest for new ideas should lead to tolerance and understanding plus acceptance of those persons different from ourselves.”
“Listening and learning better cognition standards is the way ahead, not racial slurs that ooze from the current White House, and cost the loss of customers the Americans will never hear from as they wonder why business opportunities are dwindling,” she opined.
