  1. The color of your skin is only skin deep. Mitochondrial eve. We all came from the one place. Try to educate yourself.

  2. Wound up on my front burner.
    Let's see what I can quote from my files…
    In August 1989, just two months after Trump launched his Trump Shuttle Airline, one of his Boeing 727s made a crash landing at Boston’s Logan International Airport. The shuttle was to fly white-collar passengers between New York, Washington and Boston. The passenger jet had malfunctioning nose gear that failed to deploy. The nose and underbelly of the plane scraped and dragged along the runaway upon landing, with sparks flying. The pilots had to perform an emergency dumping of fuel to avoid a greater catastrophe. It's all on video. Trump purchased the airline for 365 million, and in 3 years, it never turned a profit. And when Trump was asked by reporters about the crash landing in Boston, he said, and I quote: “It was the most beautiful landing you’ve ever seen." Back in 1986 and likely for many years before, Trump colluded in tax evasion with Bulgari Jewelry Store in NY, a high-end posh location with tony clientele right out of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Here's how the scam worked: Trump would go into the store with his wife, his girlfriend, his…whatever (to use his vernacular). He would then buy her an expensive necklace or wristwatch. Normally, such a transaction would face the NY and state sales tax, which would be pretty high on luxury jewelry. In an illegal attempt to evade the tax, Trump asked the store to instead ship the jewelry to an out of state location, where no NY sales tax could be collected. In fact, the store would merely send an empty jewelry box to the location, while Trump and his lady friends walked out the door with the jewelry that very day. The state and city tax collectors eventually caught onto this scheme, and Trump promptly testified against his erstwhile tax evasion colluding partners at the jewelry store in order to save his own skin. The empty box scam is just one example of Trump's history of illegal tax evasion. Another story can be told about his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida by local reporter Frank Cerabino. Trump bought the property from the estate of breakfast cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. He got it for a relative bargain at $7.5 million, something he bragged about in The Art of the Deal. Yet he refused for years to pay local property taxes on the actual value of the property, $11.5 million at the time he bought it. He tried to have it both ways–buy the property for a steep discount and also pay property taxes at that same under-valued level.

  3. MAD COW INDEED! Watch out your full of it. This has nothing to do with TRUMP. If anyone is in TREASON IT YOU.

  4. In the 1920's there were more than 6 million registered white supremacist (KKK). In 2017 there were fewer than 500. Is America more racist now? A white supremacist was reported to be giving a speech in Wisconsin in 2018. More than 20,000 people (mostly white) dropped what they were doing to go protest him. Turns out it was a man from India that immigrated to the US who was running for Congress. To illustrate how absurd the allegation of there being a white racism problem is in America, you are 140x more likely to get struck by lightning than to ever meet a white supremacist.

  5. History lesson , America ,its a country founded by whites based on whites ideals and inventions …cant stop laughing, watch out whitey is going to get you.

  6. So you’re don’t with Russia Russia Russia. Now it’s Race Race Race. You guys need to find some real news to report.

  7. There are a lot of triggered, pampered, and sheltered white people in these comments that I probably have met before and have love for. I ask you all: what are you doing to address the history of white violence/supremacy in this country?

    …And lastly, how can I be of help?

  8. Idiots… KKK was made by DEMOCRATS… Lol all LEFT wing… Stop blow smoke on REPUBLICANS b.s do ur real history tgis reporter fails to tell DEMOCRATS PARTY was KKK… Lol

  9. The heart of these white nationalist groups are at the bottom in white world. Uneducated and living miserable.

    The power puppets in this ideology (politicans, media, and mid-level professionals) are typically the idiots in their field putting on an intellectual front. Who are scared someone else (non-white) will come behind and out shine them in their professional craft.

    And the puppet masters. The 1% who seem to be in a current winning plot to take down our government because it's the only that gets in their way. Except when it's time for a bail-out. Hatred is just a tool to keep us separated and distracted. Their the ones keeping all this in motion while we have commentators sitting on a panel providing limited truth.

    This hate is fueled for a reason and why it's not labeled as terrorism.

  10. If you read the New York Times'1619 Project all of this will be understood. White America was created when America became a nation built on the slavery of African people. A virus of whiteness was uploaded into the psyche of white America that has persisted for 400 years. The race obsessed nature of the nation is in every facet of American life. White American culture is the lie of white supremacy, there is nothing else that binds you. Your belief and dedication to the idea of white supremacy built your society. That is the hard truth of America and until this is articulated, digested and fought vigorously by white Americans, the country is doomed. It is only a little over 200 years since the founding of the country and it is already unraveling. Context is everything. Rome and Greece existed for over 2000 years, Egypt and Nubia in total conservatively existed for nearly 7000 years. America is dissolving at a rapid pace. Change white folks or you will go the way of the dinosaurs as a country and a people. Heroin, suicide, opioids, sickness and low birthrates are already just a few of your problems. The universe is screaming at you.

  11. Even still, America hasn't really tried to get rid of them. We've now seen even more terrorism from white nationalists and neo nazis and yet homeland security and the FBI has not deemed them a clear and present danger to the United states

  12. your a fool they do what the rulingdems tell them to do trump has nothing t do with it you have more in common than anyone

  13. Still working the race Maddow even if you and the corporate race baiting media has to
    drag it up from 30 years you people are pitiful…you low life media types just
    don't quit..but..neither will we when it comes to pointing out the likes of you Lemonhead and Fredo..

  14. Oh, please tell us about racism, Rachel, who's only contact with other races is those she employees (illegal or otherwise). Please enlighten us.

  15. It is time to separate the states in half the whites in one half the rest in another. The Democratic Party was started on racism and they will never let it die they will keep stoking the flames until we have a race war. So we might as well just separate now so it doesn’t come to that.

  16. The other racist president was Woodrow Wilson ….. Under his administration segregation was reenter post and Jim crow was established as a National Program by the White House …. Woodrow Wilson was also a white populist …. Under his administration promised no war …. And duped America into supporting World War 1 …. Which haunts us to this day in the Middle East …. If the United States and not entered into World War 1 …. ikely would have been an armistice And the truce Would have been more even handed …. And there would have been no World War 2 and the Jewish Armageddon … We have had some bad presidents …. Woodrow Wilson being the worst …. One can only hope that Donald Trump will receive the same Karma that Woodrow Wilson received ….

  17. OK the facts are this. The word Racism has no meaning anymore. The left toss it around so often that is has lost all its meaning. But there is hope. Every day more Americans are tuning out from the 5th Column and getting information from other Sources.

    Welcome to the mainstream media. The most popular cable news channel in 2Q is Fox News, which won for the total day and for prime time. The ratings, however, revealed that all the cable news channels were down from the second quarter last year. In prime time, Fox News averaged 1.9 million viewers. It had a bigger audience than MSNBC (758,000), CNN (594,000) and HLN (487,000) combined. Fox was down 10% from the second quarter last year, while MSNBC was off 4%, CNN was off 31% and HLN was down 12%.

    Among cable news channels in prime time, Fox was the clear winner in the 25-to-54 age group, which is most important to news advertisers. Fox had 468,000 viewers in that age group and outpaced MSNBC (237,000), CNN (174,000) and HLN (158,000). But there was falloff from the second quarter. Fox News had the smallest (down 9%); CNN had the greatest (down 28%).

  18. Oh my God!  What is happening in this country!  Thank God for Rachel Maddow and her amazing staff for working so hard to tell us the truth and for exposing the horrible, criminal activities in the country and within this Trump Administration!

  19. Can not believe people watch her and listen to the bu*****t that she spouts. How many YEARS in between her examples? The things done were, are and always will be wrong. Just don't act like it's an every day occurrence or that Trump condones it

  20. What is Madcow blathering on about now ? Ancient History….I guess her Russia..Russia..Russia… stories finally ran out of steam…

  21. Your agenda is a persistent infection to "American Culture" Whatever that was or is ! Divide and conquer for the devil who writes the checks for the Hegelian idiots working for MSNBC

  22. The American history of quiet "genocide" is why most American politicians aren't in the Hague awaiting trials. But Americans would put many cultures to shame with their type virulent prejudice by white people.

  23. These neo-nazis have always been around the only difference between today is they feel more freely to expose their self because of wannabe Nazi dictator Trump Hitler thought he would rule the world with white nationalism and we seen how he was toppled over the same things will happen with these hate-filled neo-nazis in America history will not be kind to these monsters.

  24. General Electric, your parent company, makes billions of dollars from defense contracts that allow the killing of innocent Brown children all over the world.

  25. If you take the Hutchinson River Parkway north out of NYC then take the Merrit Parkway to I-97 you will eventually arrive at Hampshire County, Mass where Rachel Maddow lives. Hampshire County is 91% white and 1.67% black. Keep driving and you will reach Cummington Mass, Rachel's quaint New England town inside Hampshire. 96.10% white and 0.67% black. Long Division? Tell us about it Rachel.

  26. Really? MSNBC is calling all of us dumb Finks, and judging by some of the comments below, it is warranted. This repugnant white trash behavior went on long before Trump got in office, but Rachel weaves you a webb of mind control so you connect this behavior of these despicable low energy scags to the Trump presidency. Go do your research people, as to what your officials in office have said and done long before Trump got in office. Since the last two years and 40 million dollars was wasted trying to unseat or impeach a duly elected president (which by the way is either treason or sedition on the part of lynch mob) you got nothing. So now you have to fake it, fudge it, lie, cheat, steal the 2020 election if you have to, right? Voter fraud? Why not, right. Try it all….again!! First their was the Mueller thing with it's FISA abuse witch hunt that came up dry. Schiff promised there was 'absolute proof'. Oops. Then there's the impeachment threats. Oops. None of it worked. You can fool some of the people ALL of the time, as shown in the comments here, but it's getting to be more and more of a challenge, isn't it? I guess that's why this was dug out of the archives. You are desperate. Poor fake news and their puppets.

  27. Next time, get current and report on Antifa. Try to justify and explain their violent behavior in the name of 'universal love and acceptance'. I'm looking forward to seeing how you weave that webb of mind control that justifies not calling them a hate group. But at least you wore something other than black. Maybe that's why you dug up this old tape… just to prove you don't ALWAYS wear your lucky outfit….black. 😀

  28. Her comments are solely about her hate for Trump. Yes, there are bad white people, a small percent of white people. There are bad black people, a small percent of black people. There are bad brown people, a small percent of brown people. If you are half intelligent, you know these facts. For her to lead people to believe there is an uprising and "conservative whites" are all suddenly joining white supremacy groups is ignorant.
    Are all brown people now suddenly joining ms13 ? No. Are all black people now suddenly black panthers ? No.
    You see my point, every ethnic group has bad people in it, but that doesn't label all of the people in their ethnic group bad. This is all about dividing people in our country.

  29. I worked for the Department of Justice for 12 and 1/2 years. I can tell you with 100% confidence that there is no way you can trace that money to those organizations. Don't believe this for a second.

  30. Shut up, you abnormal tin-foil hat lunatic! Maybe you've been eating too much fish! Something has rotted your pea nrain! 😝😝

  31. And racism simply doesn't exist with black people? And the leading Hispanic group in the US is called La Raza for nothing, right? It's amazing this discredited, ridiculous woman is still around.

  32. Department of Justice is spreading white supremacist propaganda via government email.

  33. You don't need to be part of a hate group to be a White supremacist. Heck you don't even need to be White to value the ideology of White supremacy.

  34. If you only call out "lone wolf" terrorist or open White supremacist groups and not police and racist judical system you are aiding in White supremacy. Systematic White supremacy needs to be removed and all else will be easy.

  35. the whole Charles Manson "Helter Skelter" plot involved a race war according to testimony from some of the Spahn Ranch folks… just saying….

  36. Americans or America needs to realise these white neo nazis also have a whole lot of people in every government department which are called sleepers , these guys are there but will never attract attention to themselves , waiting for the right time to strike . So guys better give this some thoughts.

  37. How any one can watch this moron is beyond imagination. She is now done with Russia so let’s all move on to racism and the new R recession. She spews her lies and morons watch her and believe her . Really.

  38. Racism is a persistent problem in the USA. For example, in the title of this video, ascribing a persistent infection solely to "White" culture… that is racist. We should do something to stop that, and all other forms of racism. It's truly disgusting and leads to lots of bad things, such as Donald Trump in the White House.

  39. ALL abuse & abusers (except for a few who will be forced to stay & clean up their messes) are now surfacing in order to be removed/cleaned off Gaia & elsewhere now that the "original first parents" (aka "Gods"/ofp's) have been taken out of creation for crimes against same: (The First Being's Legacy of Abuse, Disease, Chaos, Destruction (12-4-2016) @b4FE and "God" Never Cared, Never Wanted To. (9-6-2017)​@d4xs). And NOTHING can hold back the UNPRECEDENTED CHANGES unfolding throughout; on this planet it involves: How Your Governments Will Be Destroyed and…. Your Awakening (8-18-2016)

  40. O,k, why do you call all whites,,,white supremists and nazis,,,ffor all of you doing tthis is is so bad, you are being so racist,,,,to brand all white people the filthy names that you have attributed to white people,,,no one wants anyone to call certain people names attributed to 9,,,11,,,maybe we need to bring a law suit against inciting violence, towards politicians and media,,,is the media trying tio incite a race war, it seems that way,, you cant help what muslim radicals or black radicals do, nither can white people stop what kkk,,,or white supremists do, all we can do is try to find the radicals, no matter what color they are and lock them up,, their are parts of antifa, that i have seen , that was very violent,,dont you think its time /or all to talk,,

  41. Had a conversation with a guy in my gym about this. Its great that they are coming out of the woodwork and now we can see who they are anywhere that they go.

  42. You need to get out more. I have lived and worked around the world. Racism is not limited to White American culture. It is a global problem. These guys in Charlottesville are ugly thugs. I am regularly accused by a group of black racist thugs when I ride my bike to work in South Seattle. Buy focusing on race and not the behavior, you are dividing the country. We need to call out the ugly behavior whenever we see it and not focus on the race.

  43. I watch this woman every NOW and THEN,
    But THIS is an excellent piece of journalism. I APPRECIATE the facts and evidence she displayed and yet remained neutral and unbiased to the standing issue of White Supremacy. Other white reporters seem to DOWNPLAY play or IGNORE the monsters within their ranks.


  45. White ppl stop bringing up Ww2 vets plz. Lol y'all do realize most white guys were racist back then right? Yes your grandparents were just as evil. So no theirs not many vets rolling around in their graves atleast not the white ones. They hate Nazis but came back home n still treated ppl of color like shhhhh. So plz stop it learn you history

  46. They always want a race war, it never changes. Charles Manson in the 60's and 70's, Nazis and white supremacists in the 80s and beyond. The thing is, America was never a white country. Slaves were brought here in the early 1600s, long before there was even an official "United States" to speak of, and long before most European families even thought of immigrating here (not to mention the Natives were already here). These people want to rewrite history, they want a lily white America that never actually existed. Their ideology is born out of narcissism, plain and simple.
