Racism is so hard to find these days that it must be embedded, hidden, covert, indirect—that is, “coded.”
So of course Donald Trump—who is many things, including a self-serving, narcissistic, publicity-hound—is of course a coded racist for questioning Barack Obama’s credentials and asking whether his entry into Columbia or Harvard Law was due to affirmative action.
Well, affirmative action was and is a reality. And Obama’s failure to reveal his transcripts feed the question and make it a valid one.
This accusation that Trump is a racist is actually sort of funny, though—that another coded racist remark of Trump’s was his request that Obama “gets off his basketball court or whatever he is doing at the time” and work on dealing with the high gasoline prices at the pump.
