There's also the time he moved black employees off the casino floor to accommodate a racist ex mob boss, said he didn't want black accountants because they were "lazy", broke his promise to staff a casino a black area with locals, hiring predominantly white people from outside the community.

Yeah, it's interesting how conflicted his history is on that front, given the fact that he's also an Ellis Island Medal Recipient. I don't think he's a racist, but he has cases for and against that.

Have you got some sources on some of the those? Preferably non-Huff Post? Not trying to call bullshit on you, but I want to take more than just your word for it.

Trying to direct any conversation on Trump to one about how Hillary is worse is no less a cop-out.

Though my intentions have never been to try and prove that Trump is "literally hitler", I'm personally more of the mindset that Trump won't actually be able to get anything done, let alone develop a 4th Reich. 100% of my intention in the comparison is in trying to get Trump supporters to stop acting like clueless, or even fully supportive, German citizens circa 1940.

of course, i never said theirs no such thing as a phony. but like i said before these styles have long since passed. the during WW2 many if not ALL temples where0 destroyed. the esoteric teachings such as taoism where considered enemies of the government. some where killed others put to work camps, and the ones who fled went to go teach else where such as long beach CA. and so begins the rest of the story you already know. yes i too believe theirs many many phonies out their, but between you and me, the bits and pieces that survived have more to do with developing a harmony with your body and mind rather than mystical telekinesis. to put it simply some say it is the art of getting out of your own way. kinda like how some drunks tend to survive car crashes due to their soft unconscious body. they simply let their own nature protect them, the means of which are beyond abstract. it's about creating a void within the self in away and letting life fill it. they called it internal alchemy, now days people call it tai chi or qigong.

many many tried, however it's rumored that the esoteric teachings and ideals where much too abstract for the kids of today. they simply could not grasp it. the new generation was just too different. as for grappling, grappling has long been put into practice, only not many revolved around it such as judo. it was simply a tool by a different name dominant amongst harder styles. its said though, one can only get so far with forcing styles. soft style is less tangible and more subtle, so subtle it's a game of the subconscious mind, only through methods of meditation where practitioners said to breach beyond the mere physical level. sounds like bs and it might possibly be, however i feel it to be just as ignorant to assume folly due to the evidences i've been presented with the encounters i've had in the past.

Well, I can't speak on your personal experiences, but this idea that you can defeat someone with your mind is absolutely ridiculous.

I've seen countless videos of these guys using chi, and pressure points, and other mumbo-jumbo on their cult followers in the McDojo, but then, when they fight actual fighters, they get badly hurt.
