How is liberals’ ranking of the best and worst countries any less “racist” than Trump’s recent statement?

Liberals are accusing Trump of “racism” because he recently said that Norway was better than Haiti.

But check this out. This chart was published by the left wing The Nation two years ago. It shows what liberals consider to be the 10 best and 10 worst countries:

How is the liberals’ ranking of the best and worst countries any less “racist” then Trump’s recent statement?

Why do liberals think that all the best countries are ones that are white majority?

Why isn’t liberals’ so-called love of diversity represented in that chart?

Why is it that when all those famous liberal celebrities promised to move out of the U.S. if Trump was elected (a promise which 100% of them broke), they all cited white majority countries as their new home (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.) instead of, oh, say, Haiti?

    You’re a typical liberal-paranoid right wing lunatic. There are scores, even dozens, of such Top/Worst Countries lists published each year by all sorts of outlets, including travel agencies. They mean nothing about being racist. And when Trump said he’d rather have Norwegians (who have absolutely zero interest in moving to the US under a Trump regime) than Africans or Haitians, then clearly Trump has expressed racism by preferring to see pristine white blond people over dirty dark black people in the country. Apparently, the shithole countries remark banged your head upside down and caused you to not hear what Trump actually said and meant. If a country is a shithole, it’s mostly due to its politics and/or economy, not its people who normally are victims of their country’s politics and/or economy, just as Americans have become victims of Trump’s politics.

      I agree with you that countries are good or bad based on their policies, not on the race of their people.

        So what was the point of posting the above, other than to stir the racist pot, with some bigotry thrown against liberals for good right wing intolerable measure?

        My point is that it’s not “racist” to say that some countries are really great and some are really horrible.
