Racist things Donald Trump could have said (but didn't)

A compendium of racist statements that orange windbag Donald Trump could have said... but didn't:

"...this guy would have been carrying our bags"
- Bill Clinton (referring to Barack Obama) to Ted Kennedy in 2008 

Barack Obama could win the presidency because he is “light-skinned” and speaks “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
- Senator Harry Reid, 2008

On the House floor, then Representative Harry Reid insisted that “no sane country” would decree that a child of illegal immigrants was a citizen just because he was conveniently born on its soil.
- Harry Reid, 1993

Barack Obama is the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
- Joe Biden, 2008

“... you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
- Joe Biden, 2006

 “If Obama was a white man... he would not be in this position.”
- Geraldine Ferraro, 2008
"The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations."

- Che Guevara, 1960s

"Negro de mierda" (means "shitty N-word" in Cuban Spanish)
- Fidel Castro referring to Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista

“White folks was in the caves while we [blacks] was building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
- Al Sharpton
“I give interracial couples a look. Daggers. They get uncomfortable when they see me on the street.” 

- Spike Lee

“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go.”
- Marion Berry

"The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him."
 - Louis Farrakhan

“Hymies” and “Hymietown..."
- Jesse Jackson’s describing New York City while a 1984 presidential campaigner 

“He’s married to a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn’t want to be black.” [About Ward Connerly's interracial marriage]
- California State Senator Diane Watson
“[Ted Cruz]... No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic." (Cruz's father was born in Cuba)

- Bill Richardson 

 “I don’t know what kind of a [N-word] wouldn’t vote with a black man running..."
- Joseph Lowery
