Your attack on Reagan is really weak. You declare he didn’t say anything racist, but you still want to smear him with that label. Why? Because he advocated economic policies you disagree with. Is that enough to support a charge of racism? I don’t think so. In what sense does racism follow from free market policies promoting prosperity and economic opportunity for all? You can debate the proper extent of government involvement and its role preventing monopoly abuse, promoting universal education, providing a social safety net and more. Some people think the truly racist policies that those destroy Black family structure and economic opportunity and that keep many POC impoverished in crime-ridden neighborhoods and dependent on welfare and beholden to an urban plantation bureaucracy. In contrast, policies that support families, good schools, economic development, and opportunity have been more effective at improving the standard of living of people of all races and nationalities. Maybe you should have restricted your list to the four on which you have more direct and substantial evidence of racist belief?
