I admit I am a racist. Trump made me racist.

I admit it. I never thought that I would ever single out anyone of a particular skin color. I have always accepted people no matter where they come from, and their skin color hasn't been a factor in telling whether somebody is of good character. That is the way I was brought up. However, like millions of others, the election of Trump has brought out the racist in me. I can no longer say that color is not a factor. I never thought I would ever say one color is worse or better than another color, but I really do have a very poor opinion of orange.

1. I am also guilty. In my case I am becoming ashamed to be a white male in today's America

2. I am going to have a DNA test done.

Hoping and praying it will prove I'm not really white. If it indicates I'm truly Anglo, I might even lie about the results.

3. One of George Carlin's

funniest lines to me was when he walked on stage and the first thing he said was, "I'm prejudiced." After an uncomfortable pause with a few nervous laughs from the audience, he delivered the punchline, "I hate white people."

Back in the mid-70s when I saw this, it was a line with much shock value. 40 plus years laters, as a white man, I echo his sentiment, only I'm not joking.

5. To be honest, I was already biased against orange people.
