Trump Refuses to Apologize for Central Park Five Death Penalty Ad

June‎ ‎18‎, ‎2019‎ ‎2‎:‎28‎ ‎PM‎ ‎PDT

Trump has long been attached to the case of the “Central Park Five” because he ran a full-page ad in the New York Times less than a month after the attack calling for New York to “bring back the death penalty” for violent criminals. He has never apologized for the ad.

“You have people on both sides of that,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday after he was asked about the case. “They admitted their guilt.”

"He has never apologized for the ad"

And never will either.

He’s s punk ass who doesn’t want to admit he was wrong about them. He is in denial that they were mentally and physically abused into confessing to a crime they didn’t commit.

If you're going to refer to people as 'scum', at least have a reason to do so.

Yes, it is. And heartbreakingly sad and infuriating. It brings up so many emotions, but hopefully it is causing people to truly look at how they interact with people, how they treat others that are "different", and what black men, women, and children go through in this country. Slavery may have ended but the attitudes and mindsets of the people have not, not nearly enough. And it's got to stop.



While things have improved, even within my lifetime, racism (along with other irrational hatred), has never gone away

He’s s punk ass who doesn’t want to admit he was wrong about them. He is in denial that they were mentally and physically abused into confessing to a crime they didn’t commit.

Has he ever admitted he was wrong about anything?


Absolutely not! He’s a racist To the core His father was a supporter of the KKK. So when you grow up with a parent like that, it’s no wonder he is the way he is. Look st how he has spoken about Black and Brown people from other countries. He’s a sick, twisted man. He wanted to execute 5 innocent teens for an rape incident they didn’t commit. As horrible and the incident was, the jogger never identified them as the suspects, yet some of the detection the case tried to convince her that they were. They even tried to make her lie. I remember when all this happened, and the way the kids were depicted in the media. They degraded them like animals, and the racists had a field day with it.

I don’t give a damn who doesn’t want to hear the ugly truth about trump’s horrible, and ugly history and present-day racist comments. He surely doesn’t hide it, so people have a right to express their opinion regarding his comments, whether some like it or not. On top of that, I, and others here will not be bullied into keeping quiet about trump’s history/present-day racist comments, nor the past and current racism that still exists in this country. The Charlottesville situation that played itself out in public, was pretty much evident of the ignorant, racist ideology that stemmed from the past, and still keeping it alive today. Unfortunately, trump seemed to have no problem with some of his white nationalists supporters’ marching and expressing their hatred toward others.

Exactly, because that’s how he sees all Black men. He certainly has no problem expressing his ignorance about their racial group. He wanted 4 Black kids and one Hispanic kid, executed in a false rape charge. There have been people who committed murder and don’t get the death penalty, yet even without all evidence the table at the time, he wanted these teens killed by the state. Goes to show you how deep his hatred ad ignorance is towards the Black and Brown communities. I can’t wait until he’s voted out of office. That slime bag is infecting the country with his racist sickness. He has never been or will ever be s president for ‘all Americans ‘ because he had no intention of being that.

So glad Ava put that real, life story out on Netflix, so everyone could see what happened when those kids were arrested, abused and treated like animals by law enforcement in NYC.

You hit the nail on its head. The problem is the generational, ignorant, stereotyped, racist ideology that stemmed from the past, including during slavery, and existing in the present. Yet people will attack many for pointing that truth out.

Honestly, I think the only reason some get ‘bent out of shape’ and go on the ‘attack with venom oozing from their mouths’ when the truths of existing racism is discussed/revealed, is because it forces them to question their own conscience, if they too embrace that racist ideology. Maybe they’re more angry at themselves because this topic exposes a side of them they don’t want to admit exists.

I have never felt discriminated against because of my race. Period. I have felt discriminated against because of my gender. Your original post and reply to my thread was racist. Anyone reading it can see that. I am not getting personal with you, but merely pointed out the obvious. And me having only been mistreated by white people is fact. My family is completely white. Where I grew up, there is no diversity. Small town middle Missouri. As for only acknowledging one form of discrimination, you are in error. There is discrimination against women, against the LGBTQ community. There is discrimination against Latino nations and Muslims. But white people in general are not discriminated against, unless they fall into one of the other categories. So to take me pointing out that your post was racist as a personal attack against you, speaks more about you than me.

I don't see myself as a victim, because I rise above all the everyday bullshit that EVERYONE has to deal with every day. I've already pointed out the many ways we are all discriminated against. The fact that you acknowledge and care about only one form of discrimination, against only one demographic, tells us all we need to know.

Why must you always get personal like that with me? Oh yeah, because you know the mods will allow you.

Yes, I posted about it on the other thread by Poppy. I’ll never forget what happened to those young men back then. Trump put a full page ad calling for the death penalty for them, and it turns out they never committed that crime. They were wrongly accused, and the real rapist confessed years later, although I believe he tried to come forward before, but nothing g was ever fine about until years later. A few LE officials got promotions from that case off the backs of innocent young men. I’m glad they were finally freed for a crime they didn’t commit.


What happened the prosecuting attorney? I mean, did she ever get in trouble for trying to hide evidence (the sock)? And the LE that treated those babies so poorly, while they had gotten promotions at the time, were they EVER reprimanded once the truth came out???



I don’t think so. I know that recently I read she had to step down from some organizations, because of the backlash from the Netflix movie, that revealed her actions in the Central Park Five case. I don’t know how she slept at night all these years, knowing what she did to them. She still doesn’t give a damn that she stole years of their lives from them.

Lol. It’s not our problem if he can’t handle the ugly truths and facts about this country’s ‘documented’ past and present racist history. Many of us here are mature enough to have a discussion about it, while respecting one another.

[Now off-topic a bit but I have to say this: As far as Prince, he was heavily involved in the Black State of the Union conferences, and I remember Travis telling the audience at one of those conferences, how Prince called him after those conferences, and they stayed on the phone for hours discussing what took place during the conferences and concerns they shared about the Black community . He told the audience that Prince supported those conferences, and how Prince always had an interest in the state of the Black community. The lyrics in the song ‘Dreamer’ was inspired by and dedicated to the late Dick Gregory’s input (comments) at one of the BSOTU conferences. The lyrics in the song came from the late Dick Gregory’s comments at one of those conferences.

Prince mentioned during the Tavis Smiley interview on PBS, a few years ago, that he may owe (the late)?Dick Gregory something because of that. Some folks try to downplay that Prince wasn’t concerned about the Black community or the racial profiling/stereotyping that existed towards that community. Yet it was very clear in his early work in his song ‘Don’t Play Me’ that he was aware, because he experienced that stereotyping at some points in his life.

Just because Prince spoke of unity, doesn’t mean he was not fully aware or concerned about what was going on in the Black community. It’s proof he did when he mentioned, Freddie Gray/ Michael Brown, in his songs, and gave a donation to Trayvon Martin and Freddie Gray’s families as well.]

Now back on topic about the Central Park Five, that was one of the most saddest cases of racial profiling that was dragged through the mud, in my lifetime. How NYC LE handled it along with some media personalities, and Trump trying to get them executed by taking out a full page ad, and yet all the evidence wasn’t in, was just sickening.

Now years later that prosecutor is getting her karma. Goes to show you in the end, the Universe never forgets. That kind of evil she projected on those teens, are biting her right up her ass now. I bet after all these years, she thought no one would remember what she did.

And keep in mind that this guy once claimed to be Black, and now denies he ever said it (both 2E and myself recall that). So he was either lying then, or lying in his denial.
Lol. It’s not our problem if he can’t handle the ugly truths and facts about this country’s ‘documented’ past and present racist history. Many of us here are mature enough to have a discussion about it, while respecting one another. [Now off-topic a bit but I have to say this: As far as Prince, he was heavily involved in the Black State of the Union conferences, and I remember Travis telling the audience at one of those conferences, how Prince called him after those conferences, and they stayed on the phone for hours discussing what took place during the conferences and concerns they shared about the Black community . He told the audience that Prince supported those conferences, and how Prince always had an interest in the state of the Black community. The lyrics in the song ‘Dreamer’ was inspired by and dedicated to the late Dick Gregory’s input (comments) at one of the BSOTU conferences. The lyrics in the song came from the late Dick Gregory’s comments at one of those conferences. Prince mentioned during the Tavis Smiley interview on PBS, a few years ago, that he may owe (the late)?Dick Gregory something because of that. Some folks try to downplay that Prince wasn’t concerned about the Black community or the racial profiling/stereotyping that existed towards that community. Yet it was very clear in his early work in his song ‘Don’t Play Me’ that he was aware, because he experienced that stereotyping at some points in his life. Just because Prince spoke of unity, doesn’t mean he was not fully aware or concerned about what was going on in the Black community. It’s proof he did when he mentioned, Freddie Gray/ Michael Brown, in his songs, and gave a donation to Trayvon Martin and Freddie Gray’s families as well.]


Now back on topic about the Central Park Five, that was one of the most saddest cases of racial profiling that was dragged through the mud, in my lifetime. How NYC LE handled it along with some media personalities, and Trump trying to get them executed by taking out a full page ad, and yet all the evidence wasn’t in, was just sickening. Now years later that prosecutor is getting her karma. Goes to show you in the end, the Universe never forgets. That kind of evil she projected on those teens, are biting her right up her ass now. I bet after all these years, she thought no one would remember what she did.

Absolutely.

Trump's deep seated and never ending racism will always allow him to see these men as guilty, no matter what the evidence has proven

Exactly, because that’s how he sees all Black men. He certainly has no problem expressing his ignorance about their racial group. He wanted 4 Black kids and one Hispanic kid, executed in a false rape charge. There have been people who committed murder and don’t get the death penalty, yet even without all evidence the table at the time, he wanted these teens killed by the state. Goes to show you how deep his hatred ad ignorance is towards the Black and Brown communities. I can’t wait until he’s voted out of office. That slime bag is infecting the country with his racist sickness. He has never been or will ever be s president for ‘all Americans ‘ because he had no intention of being that. So glad Ava put that real, life story out on Netflix, so everyone could see what happened when those kids were arrested, abused and treated like animals by law enforcement in NYC.

Remember, Trump didn't deny (at first) saying 'laziness is a trait inherent in blacks'. He is what he's always been. He didn't infect the country with his racist sickness, it was always there. The Archie Bunker types feel emboldened now, because Trump speaks their language. I'm not bothered by it - I want folks to let their bigotry show. Like Malcolm X said, I'd rather deal with a wolf than a fox.

Exactly... a racist. He surely never hid being one. He will never admit he was wrong about the Central Park Five, even though they were exonerated, after being found innocent years later. At the time they were arrested, he wanted them executed.

Not surprised at any of his racist comments. He’s an ignorant idiot. His father was a KKK supporter, so that loose branch isn’t far from that tree. He feeds his white nationalists’ supporters what they want to hear, like his disgusting, racist rants about immigration, and the racial disrespect he has spewed towards Mexicans, whether legal or illegal. Not to mention his insults towards countries with a majority Black and Brown population. I just cannot respect someone of his character. He’s too disrespectful towards people of color whether they are American or not.

As an American you have a right to question/call your country out on its wrongs/injustices. That doesn’t make you un-American nor does anyone have a right to tell you to leave, because you have the courage to stand up against any injustice in this count

....and yet, there are black folks (though not many) who support this POS. A couple of my relatives voted for him......what can I tell you...it's a free country.

Trump is a man of low moral character. He's a disgraceful and indecent man, and racist and misogynistic sex offender, and a man not only lacking basic decency but any intelligence as well.
