He should be locked up and a picture of him behind bars should be widely circulated.

Yesh!

And can you imagine it he'd really been accepting only Jews proper? It would have been harder to send in test applicants to prove it and all, but if they had - kaBOOM!

The indignation of Trump-emulating white suits being refused... discriminated against!?!
What a nerve!!, etc. *splutter * *splutter*

This has been going of for years according to the article and has nothing to do with Trump.

I hadn't intended to blame it on Trump - rather to ask a hypothetical question. About how a white superiority-conscious person might feel if s/he learned they'd been discriminated against in such a situation.

I.e., if it turned out this landlord was refusing ALL non-Jews (them, for instance), not just persons of color.

The indignation!!

I'm guessing a white supremacist wouldn't be remotely interested in living in a "jewish" apartment building. So no indignation.

Good point, which could have been lost due to the gosh darn wokeness of hating white people.

Hey, the whole point of a hypothetical is not to pick apart every little assumption! Shrug

I just thought it was interesting to s'pose they were put in the position of discovering they had been unable to achieve something they wanted, because of being considered undesirable. THAT's the most unimaginable part to me.

(And I dwasn't thinking of a white supremacist as in David Duke, but just a white privilege sort who assumes they're automatically at the top of the social pecking order. )

So is making up hypotheticals about imaginary white supremacists and 'privileged' folks and of course dragging Trump into it.
