    I don't see Shaun King being a grifting asshole and Donald Trump being a racist grifting asshole as being in tension in any way

    I don't see how you can argue that his racism isn't based in ideology when he literally was studying racism.

    Because Trump's ideology has always been about money and increasing his "score." Every new bit of data released about him is another angle of him dressing up in the skin of some other group to move ahead and get richer.

    I mean, based on all the data you've seen of hin the past few years, do you see him willing to take a big enough bribe to send Barr to utterly curb stump David Duke, the alt right, qanon, every other part of his base?

    If Dr.Dre and half of Africa came with enough money, do you see him abandoning everything he's preached for the last 3 years?

    TL;DR

    Ideology means you stand for something.

    But lets talk about Shawn King trying to fundraise with Chadwick Boseman's death.

    He refused black tenants. Every study I have seen says that exclusion based on race only harms a business.

    And he read Hitler’s speeches every day before bed for YEARS! Went out of his way! I don’t understand how you can read that and then dismiss him as the lazy kind of racist.

    You didn’t realize he was the T-Rex? Inconceivable!

    i don't know why you think racists wouldn't love to take black people's money so that they don't have money anymore

    Black neighborhoods had grocery stores, but their prices were always higher.

    Hell, roots had scene of a slave getting swindled at the general store.

    I will say that reducing Wallace Shawn to “the guy who voiced the t-Rex in toy story” is like saying I can’t believe the person who designed the deathcrab robots posted on a webcomic forum with a turtlebear wearing a backwards hat avatar.
