John Legend Labels Trump a ‘Dyed in the Wool Racist’

American singer-songwriter John Legend has openly criticized former President Donald Trump, labeling him as a “tried-and-true, dyed in the wool racist.” In recent comments, Legend accused Trump of exhibiting racist behaviors long before his tenure in the White House, including alleged discriminatory practices in his business operations.

Legend, speaking candidly about the matter, referenced instances where Trump reportedly prohibited black individuals from accessing his facilities, highlighting a pattern of behavior that the musician believes showcases Trump’s deep-seated racial biases.

The artist also critiqued Trump’s policies, particularly on immigration, suggesting that they reflect racist underpinnings. According to Legend, these policies demonstrate a belief in a “genetic hierarchy of humanity,” an assertion that points to a fundamental view about race that he finds objectionable.

“He [Donald Trump] has made it clear throughout his life that he believes black people are inferior. He believes that to his skull, to his bones,” John Legend was quoted on Daily Loud.

“He wouldn’t let us [Black people] live in his buildings back in the day, but also when you hear some of the stray comments he makes, he clearly believes in the genetic hierarchy of humanity and he is racially determined.

“So he is a tried-and-true, dyed in the wool racist. In the core of his being, he is a racist. I don’t want to hear what he has to say about what he has done for black people, he is but done very little for us and he is at his core, truly a racist.

“You even hear what he says about immigration and what countries he wants people to come in from, they are all very white.”
