So do you think Trump was being racist with the whole "Get off the basketball court and get on the phone" comment?

Honestly, with that comment I don't think he was. Because he was referring to the president actually playing basketball and not taking a jab at his race. He does play basketball doens't he? And if Obama told Trump to get off the golf course and start creating more jobs instead of firing people for them, would that have sounded racist? It wouldn't to me.

I hate Trump and I think his whole "birther" argument was just a jab at the president, but I don't think his comments are racist.

  • I don't think he was being racist - just an attention monger.

  • No, it was not racist,but you can bet the Obama minions will go all OJ on it,and pull the race card! I respect Trump,and the fact that his whole thing with the birth certificate, he used his OWN money,and NOT the taxpayers. Too bad Obama can't say the same.

  • No. Obama likes to play basketball. I think it would have been more appropriate to say 'get off the golf course', but whatever. Everything isn't racist. It never was. Calling it racist is, in fact, more racist than the original comment.

  • No. Google news Obama, Basketball. He has either been playing basketball, golf or planning basketball parties, or talking about games .... If basketball was not a part of Obama's life~ then I would question trump. But on this? No.

  • Of course not. Obama plays basketball almost as much as he golfs. So.......
