4. white lady is actually the racist
5. car owner who is black is monetizing the likeness of the white lady, who is actually the racist.

Is that correct?

Should we assume the white lady supports Trump?

Thanks, and i just picture the lady who was complaining about the illegally parked car, pulling a Ralphie, and saying 'Fuuuuuuuudge...' once she saw the driver was black.
