Some people say Trump is a racist because he said all Mexicans are Rapists. Does it sound plausible that a President would say all Mexicans are Rapists? The real answer is NO. When we hear crazy shit like this, we should go find the whole speech and hear it from the source. Trump never said this, but what if he did? Racism is about skin color. Mexican is a Nationality, not a skin color; Mexicans come in brown, black, white, yellow, red–one of my girl friends is married to a Japanese-Mexican; figure that shit out. If Trump had said all Mexicans are Rapists, it’s a statement about a nationality and has nothing to do with racism. That’s critical thinking and the people selling you this lie can’t be trusted.
We hear politicians say 90% of all illegal drugs coming into the US from Mexico come through legal points of entry, not through the desert. To be able to say this, we must know 100% of all illegal drugs coming into the US. These politicians are LYING to us when they use percentages like this, they have no clue what drugs are coming in; we can usually pick it apart. As soon as you hear a X percentage, it’s probably a lie and be on alert.
The point is, apply critical thinking to everything we hear and read, research it if it sounds off, once you confirm that the source is liar or takes bits and pieces of the truth out of context to bend your thinking, discount that source, publicly shame them, and never listen to their liars again.
