That’s a very racist thing to say.

These men aren’t allowed to support Trump because they’re black? I dunno. Telling someone they can’t do something based on the color of their skin sounds… racist.

The very definition of racism. Are you saying these men cannot make their own decisions?

Wow, Bette! That’s some racist crap right there. I guess an old, white woman like yourself gets to decide what and how black people should believe and vote.
