I'm really mad that American journalists think this is an issue about which reasonable people can disagree.

Trump is a racist. We have so much evidence. If you keep acting like it's up for debate, you're participating in white supremacy.
I remember the 10/9/16 debate. I didn't expect anyone to say to Trump, "what you described doing was sexual assault." But then Cooper did. . . . . He said, flat-out, "That's sexual assault."
And OMG, I can't describe my reaction in words. Like a surge of power to hear a journalist say that. As a victim, I expected obfuscations from everyone, but, from Cooper, I got a declaration. I shrieked.

They should have done the same when it came to Trump's racism. They didn't
And now, two years later, they're still not saying it (nor are they really talking about his sexual predation anymore).

You have the evidence. Say it. When people in power refuse to say it, they facilitate & fuel the problem.

Trump is a RACIST. The evidence is there.
And, frankly, I think it's gross you would put a AOC in that position. She shouldn't have to bear that weight alone.

Trump is clearly a fucking racist. Don't pose it like a question to brown women he has actively demonized. Just accept it. He is a racist. The evidence is there.
The more I think about it, the more grossed out I get. It's gaslighting. Not just of AOC-who will certainly be attacked for rightfully calling Trump a racist-but of everyone who is watching. Every time journos doubt on-air, it gives other folks a reason to doubt as well. Shameful
