He certainly would face a substantial amount of competition on the racist front. There have been many frightfully racist U.S. presidents in American history. Here are the 11 most racist U.S. presidents of all time.
To fight racism and antisemitism, not just with nice sentiment, but with real public policy, defined by clear priorities and backed up with human resources and funding -- this was what the President of the Republic promised at the end of 2014.
The EU referendum will be one of the most significant decisions British citizens will ever have to make. The outcome will affect how the UK is governed, national security, the economy, human rights, the environment, culture... every aspect of our lives. It will define what it means to be British and could alter this country's relationship with the world for generations to come.
While I am no legal expert on the details of the court decision yesterday or whether the charges against him and each of the other officers were carefully made or effectively prosecuted, nor a spiritual expert on the officers' motives, nor an administrative expert on Baltimore police training, one fact continues to remain clear: No one has yet to be held accountable for the death of Freddie Gray who was alive and well before being detained and put into that police wagon. That same fact still applies to almost ALL of the young African-American men and women who have been shot or choked or beaten to death by police or who have died in police custody --despite all the publicity about these police crimes. And that is why there is so little trust in communities of color for the police that are supposed to serve them and keep them safe.
When we go to cast our votes for president in November, the fundamental question is whether we want a president who will, by and large, share the policies and vision of Barack Obama, or one who in addition to being a hateful, uninformed, groper of a fascist who would destroy our position in the world, fundamentally rejects them.
When it comes to diversity, the hiring conversation is just the tip of the iceberg. Candidates evaluate workplace environments before they decide to apply, and they're free to swipe left if they don't like what they see.

He spoke truth to power and challenged the normalization of a prejudicial-based system that thrived off of white supremacy.
Trump, says Covert, is "no small-government Republican." But isn't small government a 'Conservative value?" Are Conservatives, many of whom profess to be Christian, allowed and encouraged to be bigoted - to be racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic?
If you said yes to these questions than Trump is your guy. He has proven that over and over. If not, it is time to get out of your hypnotic state and support this country that is already great. Help it to become even greater by encouraging the collaboration of talent that America is so fortunate to have.
"Yeah but you, you are not black," my classmate said. I stopped. Took a deep breath. Calmed down. And refrained myself from arguing.
I don't reckon I am going to use the men's room no matter what laws they make. I am no longer willing to deny my own identity. I am not willing to watch them destroy the lives of transgender youth so they can feel powerful for a little while longer.
Unless you have been comatose for the last month, you are undoubtedly aware of the fact that the internet (or rather segments of the media) has engage...
The point is simple: Elections are important. How can we debate the 2016 election in a way that recognizes that gravity? To me, improving our discourse means rising above "the impulse to do harm," which is something humans naturally feel after being slighted.
It's no secret that we don't live in a post racial society, and it's also clear that having these conversations are not easy. To better understand a framework in how to approach them, or to better understand the struggles so many people face today this book is excellent.
Read these news briefs on Detroit and Flint, Michigan, Wichita, Kansas, Texas, and Puerto Rican schools. What do they have in common? You decide. See my answers at the end of the post.
