Keep on proving me right by repeatedly asking for substantiation of the obvious.

People aren't saying its subjective to say that code language exists and asking you to prove that.

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
They are denying its existence.
As for your personal jab "stop expecting people to care about what your opinion..." it is not interesting, not serious and far from the truth.
I have never expected anything from anyone, no matter how hard you wish it to be so.

A lot of the crazy Obama opponents who use such names as socialist, commie, or fascist are indeed employing code language for the N word.
I see it in their tone and I feel it in their demeanour.
I will make that call whenever necessary. I do not ask for understanding, I do not ask persmission.
You can call me out. It is your right and apparently, your imperative.
You have been told many times what my position is.
I grow tired of reapeating myself.
