Apparently I'm racist for not believing Trump is a racist? Why do people throw the race card about like it can be used to win any argument?
The people that do this actually cause more racism as they are just playing games and that will never ever help with racism. We can't get rid of true racism if people use it for anything and everything because they dont have a real reason

I agree. If you say you disagree with AOC or Ilhan Omar you will immediately be accused of being racist, sexist or both

You're not racist, just naive. You don't know any better because you'll never be placed in the shoes of a minority who's affected by his ignorant and reckless words.

Well, if a person is regarded as racist and you disagree - without any further context, it can be *assumed* that you are just as racist as them. Typically, a racist doesn't see themselves as such. Racism is viewed as an abnormal outlook, so a racist wouldn't see anything abnormal about how they think, neither would anyone else who agrees with them. So, if you feel like Trump is not racist for valid reasons and not just for the sake of disagreeing, perhaps you should first establish a basis for what makes someone racist and then analyze the instances in which his actions/words are equated to racism. Good luck.

It's tried and true tactic used by racist to make your claims of racism seem less valid and more of a toss-up when they throw in claims of you being racist. They figure as long as they are calling you racist it deflects from their own racism.

the race card is every democrat's way of trying to win the argument.

Someone who characterizes Mexicans as "rapists and murderers," who calls various foreign countries "shitholes," who insults our own foreign allies, and who has Donald Trump's history of anti-black behavior is a bigot -- and an open and utterly unapologetic bigot, because Trump never apologizes for anything, no matter how bad his behavior.
I'll certainly agree that the race card shouldn't be played casually, in every situation. But you clearly haven't done any serious research on this subject. Trump's history of racism and bigotry has been carefully investigated and published in reliable, highly-reputable media. See below, for example. The New York Times also did a quite serious investigative piece on the subject.
I'm sure you don't read the Times, but you should. It is our national paper of record, highly respected around the world. It does not publish "fake news" and Trump knows it. That's why he keeps attacking it. He fears it.

Because it used to work and they are just a little slow.
"Racism" is now just like some random drug... use it too much and it loses potency.
... they are always a bit dim in grasping the meaning of the boy who cried wolf, don't worry though, they will eventually create some other magic spell in an attempt to silence you. It's what these people do.

Trump isn’t a racist

It's obvious to everyone that Trump is a racist, a liar, a conceited megalomaniac and a delusional idiot.
If you cannot see that, you're a fool.
