The Top Ten

1 Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was an American statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837 . He was born near the end of the colonial era, somewhere near the then-unmarked border between North and South Carolina, into a recently immigrated Scots-Irish farming family of relatively ...read more.

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

Well. Well. Well... I though Donald Trump would get number one for being the most racist United States of America President ever. But looks who's number one.

2 Andrew Johnson Andrew Johnson Andrew Johnson was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson became president as he was vice president at the time of the assassination of [Abraham Lincoln].

Basically delayed African American rights by 100 years.

Good job ruining your predecessor's stuff. - TeamRocket747

How is he not #1?

He did everything OPPOSITE to what Abraham Lincoln did. >.< - CobaltCards

3 Woodrow Wilson Woodrow Wilson Thomas Woodrow Wilson was an American politician and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. Born in Staunton, Virginia, he spent his early years in Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina.

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.

He wasn't a member of the KKK. that was Warren you silly goose! - TeamRocket747

4 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.

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?

Typical closet gay man. He hates the world because he hates himself.

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. - SoloPotato

Sure, Mexico has a Drug War to deal with. But this Racist does not care. He keeps Mexicans out of the United States. At least some. Still though, Not a cool move. If they stay in Mexico, It is likely that they will die because of Drug Cartels. But USA is like this without noticing it., "Let them die, They deserve it" There are immigrants of Mexico coming to the United States to stay safe. Why is he on Number 7? He should be on Number 1.

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.

Why is this piece of garbaGe only number 5 and why is obama above him - ihatetrump

6 Zachary Taylor Zachary Taylor Zachary Taylor was the 12th President of the United States, serving from March 1849 until his death in July 1850. Before his presidency, Taylor was a career officer in the United States Army, rising to the rank of major general.

Whit people are

"Whit people are"
That's also racist. Just because most white people are racist, all of us whites are?

7 John Tyler John Tyler John Tyler was the tenth President of the United States. He was also, briefly, the tenth Vice President, elected to that office on the 1840 Whig ticket with William Henry Harrison.

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. - lannypetersong

I see he owned a black slave. - TeamRocket747

8 George Washington George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

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?!?!?!

He's not racist at all!

9 Richard Nixon Richard Nixon Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1974 when he became the only U.S.

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.

Nixon had used ethnic slurs, such as the N-word and the K-word (Jews).

10 Franklin D Roosevelt Franklin D Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events during ...read more.

What?

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!

The Contenders

11 Grover Cleveland Grover Cleveland Stephen Grover Cleveland was an American politician and lawyer who was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States, the only president in American history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office.
12 William Howard Taft William Howard Taft William Howard Taft served as the 27th President of the United States and as the tenth Chief Justice of the United States, the only person to have held both offices.

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 send blacks to south and sold them for money

He use to yell at blacks and call them a sham.

13 George W. Bush George W. Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

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.

The guy's a total SJW now. How is he racist? - lannypetersong

He used the "N" word so many times, yet he supported the Civil Rights Act...

Made lots of racist jokes.

What? Reagan was a great man! - DoroExploro13

He destroyed a wall is what he did

19 Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and served as the 3rd President of the United States from 1801-1809. He was born on April 13, 1743, and died on July 4, 1826, on the same day 2nd United States President John Adams died.

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.

20 James Buchanan James Buchanan James Buchanan, Jr. was the 15th President of the United States, serving immediately prior to the American Civil War.

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.

21 Gerald R Ford

He did the same prejudice things richard nixon did

22 Harry S Truman Harry S Truman Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, an American politician of the Democratic Party.

Dropping the atomic bomb is not racist, like Cobalt said, but he was part of the KKK - TeamRocket747

He was a jingoist who viewed foreigners condescendingly.

racist!

25 James K. Polk James K. Polk

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.

26 Dwight D. Eisenhower Dwight D. Eisenhower Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower was an American politician and general who served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe.

How about his Operation Wetback? Now that's racist!

27 Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant was an American soldier and statesman who served as Commanding General of the Army and the 18th President of the United States, the highest positions in the military and the government of the United States.
