Top 10 Most Racist U.S. PresidentsSliderRob31
The Top Ten
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!
He was a killing machine against the American Indians
By the end of this year, Donald Trump will be in this spot - NicholasYellow
Andrew Jackson loved everyone. He adopted an Indian orphan and his black slave and good friend, Thomas, is buried by his side.V 4 Comments
Basically delayed African American rights by 100 years.
How is he not #1?
He did everything OPPOSITE to what Abraham Lincoln did. >.< - CobaltCards
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. - copper
A lot of posturing, little substance, very little government experience and it showed. Arrogant, willing to bypass Congress concerning rather important legislation with his phone and his pen. I found him to be very divisive, pitting class against class, race against race, have against have nots, blue collar against intellectuals. I believe he left a much more divided nation then when he took office. Finally - who invites the BLM, (Black Lives Matter), a violent gang that celebrates every time a police officer is killed to the White House?
He's stirred up hatred of cops he hates america he made a deal with a country that wants to wipe Israel of the map and hates he's a supporter of the Muslim brotherhood a terrorist groupV 28 Comments
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.
He was caught on tape saying abortion is wrong except if it's interracial.
Probably the most racist President who was actually a college president. So much for education.
Probably number 2 on the list. Segregated the military and the federal government. Fought women's right to vote.
He was a member Of the KKK; but so were other presidents.
Whit people are
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?!?!?!
What's so wrong having slaves?
This is probably the most messed up comment I've ever read on this site. - MKBeastV 1 Comment
If Trump was President 1829, he would be far worse than Andrew Jackson, it's thanks to the Laws today, that he is held back. But no doubt he should be number one.
At least most of these other presidents have the defense of being a product of their time, but Donald Trump? He's president in 2017!
No comment...everyone else has said what I want to say.
Everything he says is racist.V 5 Comments
I'm not a fan of him but I don't think he's racist.
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. - yaygiants16
Katrina need I say more.
George Bush doesn't like black people- Kanye WestV 2 Comments
He pushed for anti-KKK legislation...
He send blacks to south and sold them for money
He use to yell at blacks and call them a sham.
What? Reagan was a great man! - DoroExploro13
He destroyed a wall is what he did
He let guerillas ship tonnes of cocaine into inner cities. Then, he mass incarcerated black people with crack-cocaine ratio laws.
What is Ronald Reagen doing here he is the best person on the worldV 3 Comments
He used the "N" word so many times, yet he supported the Civil Rights Act...
Made lots of racist jokes.
Johnson should be in the top 3, he was one of the racist ones we've ever had.
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.
Rascism was his only flaw.
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!
His actions before the end of his term all favoring the south
"Slavery is an issue of little practical importance"
- President Buchanan, a few years before the Civil War.
