Well what do you know, it would seem Donald Trump’s racial discrimination problem has been revealed. According to Salon, early in Trump’s career, his New York real estate company was sued by the federal government for discriminating against potential black renters. This is a prime example of why his comments about “the blacks” and needling President Obama over his birth certificate and questioning his qualifications to get accepted into Columbia and Harvard, plus his “basketball court” quip, should be viewed as racist. Just yesterday he a black reporter, Inside Edition’s Les Trent, “Look I know you are a big Obama fan.” Really? Does this idiot think every black person is a fan of Barack Obama? Isn’t that making an assumption based on race?
The New York Times reported (excerpted from Salon):
… the Government contended that Trump Management had refused to rent or negotiate rentals “because of race and color.” It also charged that the company had required different rental terms and conditions because of race and that it had misrepresented to blacks that apartments were not available.
