Trump on Race Relations

[Trigger warning for racism.]

Unofficial Republican (or Reform Party) candidate Donald Trump is currently being interviewed on Fred Dicker's show, and the Politico's Ben Smith, who's listening to that mess, just tweeted:
Trump: "I have a great relationship with the blacks." Calls overwhelming black support for Obama "frightening."
That would be hilarious if it weren't such a pointed reminder that racist jackasses are wildly popular with a huge swath of the US population, not despite their racism but explicitly because of it.
