    But he's making more 'problems" everyday. We need Haiti's people to make America Great Again.

    dude, check yourself: I never said mobile was a shithole. I still visit at least once a year, sometimes more. before you continue talking your shit, click the links and go back and look at how wrong you are, I'll wait.

    teawater flowing in has lots of decomposed plant material. oil rigs in the distance might freak you out a bit but if you take a boat way out you can see the gulf distinguish itself from the rest of the ocean pretty clearly.

    Then what is the difference between an Asian or European and someone from Haiti or Africa? In terms of personhood, not the condition of their native land, the difference in persons, why we would want one and not the other?

    Here is the key difference, and i apologize for my redundancy as I've been beating this drum many times now on this thread but no one has been able to clearly answer it with a direct answer. Mr Trump said we don't want people from a set of places he deems shitholes but want people from countries such as Normay. That means there is a clear implication that the people themselves are part of what makes it a shithole or not. If I'm incorrect in seeing that implication, why then would we want people from one and not the other? If its just the physical location and the condition of the piece of dirt they live on, a person from Haiti, Ethiopia or Normay would all be equal. Obviously he feels there is something wrong with the persons from these countries... Context is key. So maybe you can shed some light on what the difference in personhood there is between a Normegian, an African, or a Haitian?

    I chuckled when I seen it was you that finally commented on it, knowing you either are an english teacher or could have been one :) . I know my posts don't always reflect it, as I'm often well medicated and typing on a crappy tablet, but I, like you, can be real english stickler. My gf hates all my corrections when she speaks. lol.

    No its a clear examination of what was intended by his sentences.

    So you would contend that he sees a Normegian, an African, and a Haitian as equal peoples? If so why does he want to welcome one and exclude the other two.

    I didn't make the statement, the Fuhrer did, the Fuhrer clearly sees a distinction between the peoples from "shitholes" and the peoples from Normay. Identity politics is not the ability to logically ascertain implications from a statement.

    Blinded by whiteness. Doesn't understand racism. Punches own dick repeatedly because no one understands him. Borderline autistic with none of the intellectual gifts.
