Does anybody actually believe this to be true? That an overwhelming majority of the racists in our country lie within Donald Trump's fanbase?

What percentage of racists that voted would you estimate supported Trump vs Hillary?

I think you're forgetting about (or ignoring) a significant amount of people who are racist, but don't fit your personal definition.

Let's be very clear here, what kind of racism are you suggesting here?

How could I possibly estimate that, johnny? You want me to estimate what percentage of ~120 million people have judgmental thoughts about people outside their race? Most of them. Did most of them vote for Trump? How could I or anyone else ever know that? Making generalizations like that is drymounting stupid.

I think most people are not suggesting the exceptionally broad, watered down definition of racism here, like say, thinking that the Irish enjoy drinking, but instead, I'd argue most people making the assumption that most racists are Trump supporters are discussing the "yeah I've been to a few Klan meetings" kind of racists.

So white supremacists are the only racists that matter?

Is richard b spencer part of Trump's team? If so, the answer is "Yes".

i imagine he was referring to an actual dictionary definition:

the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

what is your personal definition?
