In your July 19 editorial in the Bourne Enterprise, you call President Trump a racist. His words that you invoke to support this refer to nationality, not race. Also, “women of color” is not a race, and the women referred to are of different races and one is indistinguishable from Caucasian.

By definition, people who use the difference in race to accomplish other objectives are themselves (at a minimum) racialist.

“The poisoning of faction, that mortal disease under which popular governments have everywhere perished” (Madison, Federalist 10) tells us what happens when “racist” is used as politics.

Many of us in Bourne (including Linda Zuern, Don Hayward, Vincent DiSangro, Julian Harwood and Lillian Harwood) feel that this is an important issue nationwide, as well as in Bourne.
