Top 10 Most Racist U.S. Presidents
To all the people calling Andrew Jackson a racist and a terrorist and all these other names. Just remember Van Buren amplified and quicked the effect of the Indian Removal Act. Andrew Jackson simply signed the law that Indians must move West by a certain year if they do not obey state law. It's not like he said they couldn't stay. Also remember there were Natives that caused damage to settlers. America was defending its citizens. Another thing you must remember is the Native chiefs agreed to move. It's not like he forced the whole process. Was the whole process moral? No, but you must remember hindsight is 20/20 and no one is perfect. Also are you just gonna forget the good things Jackson did? You people have never studied history it seems.
History teachers have failed Jackson. Yes, I have to admit he was slightly racist. But he gave Native Americans self-rule, and he didn't actually force them to move west as long as they obeyed state law. A lot of them were also hostile toward Americans, so moving the ones that did not want to abide by the law was to protect the American people. Jackson is one of my favorite presidents. He always put America first and would never let anyone push him around.
Andrew Jackson is the most racist president in US history. He really does not deserve to be in a twenty dollar bill because the reality of what he did back in the day was truly awful. The Trail of Tears became a foundation of a racist image favoured by the democrats. Thousands if not Millions of Native Americans were forced out of their land and had to walk non stop interestate. Most of them died on the way due to starvation. But he is just a racist.
Jackson was definitely a racist! I've never understood why he's remained on the twenty dollar bill! America and Americans are a racist people, more so than any other nation and it not evolved until it admits to its terrorism. The United States of America will not and can not go forward until it has confessed it sins against "people of color"! Beginning with the Native Americans and ending with Muslims!
this Xenophobic wanted to keep Mexicans, Muslims, Japanese, out of United States of America, he only cares about himself, he had encouraged his supporters to invade Capitol Hill in 2021 however he shouldn't be a President because how racist he is, he doesn't know about the politics, he could've caused WW3 because of him being too racist, the wall between United States of America & United Mexican States should be destroyed and free Mexicans to United States of America, he wants to bang his daughter if she's not his daughter, he is such a IQ loser.
Andrew Jack is racist but there has never been in American history this racist of a human. He hates Muslims, blacks, immigrants, women, Asians, and everything that he isn't. Not to mention there have been 44 white presidents, 1 black president, and 1 orange president. How did he even get elected in 2016? This man is truly the most racist person that stepped on the earth. He should definitely be Number 1.
He's not racist but he is xenophobic & a nationalist. There is a difference
He doesn't like immigrants but he doesn't mind peoples' races, he is fine with anyone with the same views as he, he doesn't like democrats & many democrats tend to be people of "color" which he is at odds at. He thinks America is the best country, he doesn't like Mexicans or Chinese from Mexico & China but he is fine with Asian Americans or Hispanic Americans
Number 1. He is mentally 2 years old, he thinks ALL muslims are ISIS but they're not all, he hates Mexicans they helped build the US, He is sexist, his supporters are stupid, he know nothing about politics, He said he would bang his daughter if she wasn't his daughter, He works with our crazy Vice President (Mike Pence), He makes stupid ideas, He wants to make women have unfair rights, He thinks anyone Mexican even U.S Mexicans should be deported, He is thinking any immigrant cannot get a U.S citizenship.
While Trump is definitely bigoted and xenophobic, and Jackson was extremely racist, even for his times, Wilson was exceptionally racist, segregating his entire cabinet and any branch in government, ignoring various lynchings and black rights at that time, and stating that A Birth of a Nation is culturally accurate, he was our most racist president.
Probably number 2 on the list. Segregated the military and the federal government. Fought women's right to vote.
Probably the most racist President who was actually a college president. So much for education.
He was a member Of the KKK; but so were other presidents.
To all the ones who think he is not. All you have to do is look at the racism of before his presidency, and after. You can clearly see a difference. After 9-11 happened, the country became closer together then ever. Now it is blown apart, and split into several different groups. A person does not have to say anything about race to be a racist. They can do it through actions too. Just like they say 'Actions Speak Louder Than Words', and his actions speak for 8 years. He has a lot of deep hatred, if you actually read about him, or read anything he has written. He was raised by his grandparents, who were white and wealthy, yet he wants to make reference to white privilege and call out the same type of people he was raised by, that is ungrateful. If he would not have been raised the way he was, he would not have been president. His whole life would have been different. I think he should be grateful for what he has, and the people who helped him along the way. Kinda funny he makes into the ...more
President Obama is NOT a racist and has done nothing racist as president. He has the courage to face the fact that the United States is burdened with a history and a legacy of overt and covert racism. He is brave enough to admit we have at different time institutionalized racism (slavery, Jim Crow, racial stereotyping) and inherited a systemic defacto racism that is hurting the country. He has the guts to try to correct that. What is racist is the denial his opponents revel in when they identify positive efforts toward corrections as racism. Denial is the firewall of the coward.
People like to try and forget it, but BLM got their start under Obama, and race relations took a sharp downward spiral after he took power, with his utterly caustic attitude towards normal white America. This culminated in not one, not two, but three years and counting of seasonal race riots in America for the first time in over a decade. Speaking of sharp things, his political ally, Al Sharpton, has built a lifelong career of race baiting grifting, leveraging racial hatred to bully local politicians and businessmen into concessions, and he ascended high within Obama's inner circle. Raised by rich white idiots, Obama is an excellent flag bearer of modern racial hatred and self loathing against whites in America.
He is so racist... JK! What idiot believes HE, the most poised, polished, and genuine president ever, of all people is racist? Do you think he is racist against Caucasian people? If so, that is not even possible! Almost every place that is racist has a majority population of Caucasian people! You can't be racist towards a majority, only a minority. Only an uneducated person who hasn't studied social and historical standards and rules would say that, and I would be surprised because most of the uneducated would at least know Obama is wonderful! He took office in the same year America had the worst stock market crash since the Great Depression. He helped get America to better times and opened a door for more African American and even women to run! Go Hillary!
The worst president ever! We wouldn't have needed a civil rights movement if it weren't for this jack*ss. He undid everything Lincoln had tried to do for African Americans. I can't believe he was Lincoln's vice president!
You all thought Donald Trump was racist? Look at THIS guy who tried to kick people out of his land just because of the color of their skin. Now tell me what/who's more Racist?
He was sympathetic towards White Southerners, and he tried to deny every amendment that was designed to give equality for the recently liberated slaves.
Just do a little research, behind Trump he's clearly the worst.
Basically any president before Abe Lincoln was racist and even after him most were still racist. Donald Trump shouldn't be so high on this list. We are living in a completely different time period now. Study your history, libs.
It is truly sad that some people think that a the man who betrayed the country and joined the Confederacy is less racist than the self-proclaimed "least racist person on Earth."
I see he owned a black slave.
Lower than Lincoln? Why? Lincoln was the opposite of racist. He freed the slaves. This guy was apart of the KKK.
He should be higher. I saw it on the category about white supremacists on Wikipedia.
How is he not number 1? He was apart of the KKK for crying out loud. He makes Andrew Jackson look like a SJW.
I don't know why old tricky dick is on here. Being the fact that during Nixons time as President who enforced Federal Court orders on forced school integration in the South in 1969-70, and enforced forced busing of White kids to Black schools to achieve "racial diversity" in schools. He also enforced the first major Affirmative Action programs in 1970 when he forced the Pennsylvania White Construction Workers Trade Union to admit Black members by a certain time table. Now it is true that Nixon was racist in his personal life but that's it.
This guy was overthrown so bad that he resigned from his job and left us in large debt. He was also a racist in some ways but he was just a bad president.
He was caught on tape saying abortion is wrong except if it's interracial.
Nixon had used ethnic slurs, such as the N-word and the K-word (Jews).
"Slavery is an issue of little practical importance"
- President Buchanan, a few years before the Civil War.
How is James Buchanan down here?
He should be in the top ten.
While George Washington did own slaves, he treated them benevolently and set them free in his will.
All of the first several presidents (except Adams and Quincy Adams) owned slaves.
What is Washington doing here?!?!?!
Give the man credit, he was from 1776!
"Whit people are"
That's also racist. Just because most white people are racist, all of us whites are?
Whit people are
He announced in his inaugural speech that he would not appoint blacks to federal Posts as Republicans before him had and he did not appoint any. He appointed ex-Confederate soldiers to the Supreme Court and began the wave of Blacks turning away from the Republican party toward the Democrats. He sent troops to Cuba to help during the Negro rebellion during which thousands of blacks were slaughtered. He was the most racist President who knew and admitted he was racist.
He use to yell at blacks and call them a sham.
Reagan epitomized that race is a neutral thing, and any race deserved equal rights. He pushed for the equal rights acts set up by LBJ. He incorporated some humor that comes off as racist, like his phone call with Nixon, but it was a failed attempt at light comedy and not a reflection of his beliefs. He was not the most racially progressive president, but he was in no means a racist president
Reagan supported the Apartheid Government in South Africa, that along proves he is a racist president. Even in an audio that recently surfaced with a conversation involving him and Nixon which he said 'Monkey' by referring to African Americans makes him a total racist buffoon. He is outright a race divider
He let guerillas ship tonnes of cocaine into inner cities. Then, he mass incarcerated black people with crack-cocaine ratio laws.
Known that he made racist comments on the Whitehouse lawn when he was still a California Senator.
Let's be real, while he did some great things, the interment stuff is just terrible... Trump or Biden at their most malicious would never come close to treating Japanese people like farm animals by roping them up in a "camp".
He locked up a lot Japanese-Americans during WW II and there wasn't a single incident of sabatoge by Japanese-Americans during that time! Why didn't gather up Italians or German-Americans and place them in internment camps? I would say, Franklin D. Roosevelt was a racist!
"George Bush doesn't care about Black people." Says Kayne West. While two faced Mike Myers acts so nice on front of people when he is a BASTARD in real life.
This man doesn't care about black people! Have you seen how he handled that hurricane back in 2005? Unbelievable. Bush should be in the top 10 instead of Obama. I'm not saying Obama is great, but still.
George W. Bush got a problem with black people and doesn't care about them at all. Plus, he is the most immature United States president that has ever been elected.
I'm not a fan of him but I don't think he's racist.
Supported segregation in schools, called black kids roaches, called people of color jungle animals, opposed bussing, called black people n-words, and said he wants to put black people back in chains. "Yeah, Trump is totally the racist one!"
If he was elected president being racist then the government be tripping
Johnson is your typical liberal Democrat... an actual racist, he just lived in a day when you could get away with showing it.
"I'll have those n******s voting Democratic for 200 years." (After pushing for civil rights legislation.)
"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference."
Surprised he's so low. Yes, policy-wise he did things for Civil Rights, but he also used the N-word frequently, and I think that's more indicative of the man.
He used the "N" word so many times, yet he supported the Civil Rights Act...
Johnson should be in the top 3, he was one of the racist ones we've ever had.
Ok. He wasn't that racist. I mean sure he thought that African-Americans were inferior, but that was common among Southerners for his time. Merely being a hypocrite isn't enough for him to become the most racist president.
Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence; proclaiming that all men (white) are created equal. Jefferson, a student of Thomas Locke, who believed that man's natural state is to be free - Jefferson who owed lots, and lots of slaves; Jefferson who predicted that the country would come to blows over slavery; Jefferson the hypocrite. Jefferson who liked (loved) black women; Jefferson who father numerous children by black slave women.
Don't we all hate hypocrites.
No president is perfect anon... At least he didn't (at least openly) support the KKK, without him, we wouldn't have our Interstate system.
How about his Operation Wetback? Now that's racist!
A butthurt KKK put this here because he freed the slaves. Nope. Lincoln was amazing for doing that. Racist idiots.
Although he did not believe in blacks and whites having equal rights, he still shouldn't be at #20. Or, even on this list.
Know your facts guys, Lincoln was pressured into freeing slaves. He in no way wanted blacks to have equal rights as whites
Revisionist history at work. George Orwell would be so proud.
Dropping the atomic bomb on Japan wasn't racism by the way.
Dropping the atomic bomb is not racist, like Cobalt said, but he was part of the KKK
Probably the most racist President we've ever had! He sure did everything he could to start a war with Mexico as a pretense to steal their land! Although, it is not 1848, the same treachery continues today in the Southwest. Many heirs to Spanish land grants are still fighting to regain their rights to "common lands" given to them by the Spanish crown before the Mexican American War.
