Better luck next time.

Normally I don't prove peeps wrong in the political cartoon thread but this one was so fuqin' ridiculous I had to show what horse-sh*t it is.

According to Snopes it's unproven.

Quote:
On 31 May 2018, a Florida man named Jesse Pariseau tweeted about an encounter he allegedly had with Donald Trump over three decades earlier, during which Trump supposedly prevented a maritime engineer from boarding his yacht “because [the man] was black”:

However, that single anecdotal tweet appears to be the full substance of the claim. As far as we know, Pariseau has so far declined all attempts by news outlets (including ours) to interview him and verify his story, and he later deleted his attention-getting tweet, claiming the responses it was generating were becoming “scary”:
Quote:
Although Pariseau also stated that he had “told the Trump yacht story about 10 times over the last year,” we couldn’t turn up any reference to it antedating his initial tweet of 31 May 2018:

We also have not yet been able to locate any documentation of the breach of contract lawsuit Donald Trump allegedly filed against Jesse Pariseau — which Pariseau asserted Trump lost — even when we expanded our search after Pariseau corrected his initial account to state the event in question took place in 1988 rather than 1983:

Pariseau also stated that he no longer had documentation related to his claim:

So, for the time being what we have is sensational tale that is not documented by anything other than a personal anecdote offered in a since-deleted tweet.

Ok, very good.
Seems it's "Unproven" so I'll accept that report.
I won't accuse Trump of that.
In this case, my apologies to Trump for repeating the unproven accusation.

Many if not most realtors practiced redlining in New York. So did the banks. And many faced charges from the government. One wonders how many were Republicans in a city like New York. And BTW< Trump wasn't a Republican back then.

30 years later, the area real estate practices have changed. And that is what matters.
