His race does not affect my opinion of him at all. I am interested in his his statement - that is all.
However his statement infers that if he were more open about it that he would be viewed less favorably by blacks. More directly it says that to appear to be ingratiated with whites is a ttrait he does not desire. That is the meat of my point. Am I wrong, is there an alternate explanation?
I don't understand how him saying that he doesn't talk about it infers that he thinks he would be viewed less favorably by black people. I think its saying "I am not a race, I am a human. Take me for what you see." At least, that's how I perceive the statement.
I will give you the answer. Because to tell or talk or appear to do so about his ethnicity too frequently would give rise to the accusation of seeking favorable treatment for his white side. He is or could be a young man with abundant ambition and a bit of stubborness that desires to achieve based on his own merit. If that is so then he has my respect regardless of party affiliation.
If you can fathom this, why is it so hard for you to understand this may actually be?
Of course my initial thoughts were quite different as earlier discussed and castigated with what I feel was undue critizism. But I still feel there is a possiblity that the reason my at least partially be due to his demeaning view of an ethnic group.
Wow, I'm impressed with your new vocabulary considering a few posts ago you were spelling things incorrectly right and left. Good. I am glad for this expansion.
Finally my gut instinct is that too many expectations are being placed on him and that the rush to support him by many is based limited or no knowledge or perhaps simply because someone else has.
I don't know if I am ready to support him for president or anything. Right now, I have yet to learn enough about him. But people are fickle and often follow trends. Also, you must try to realize that much of the pressure already placed on him to run for pres has been placed on him by (1)the media and (2)the republican party (much in the same way they have wished for Hillary to run. I can expand upon this further if you wish.)
