When you say that voting for Trump is racist you are explicitly talking about the motivation for the vote, and ascribing it to racism. To then say that you call it racism regardless of the motivation is simply to admit that you aren't interested in the truth of your statement.

You then go on to say that we shouldn't care because they are just Trump supporters. And why shouldn't we care about whether or not the disparaging things we say about Trump supporters are true? Well, because they're racist...

Go to 10.
