Released tape features Ronald Reagan using racist slur

 

In a newly unearthed audio clip, then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan disparaged "monkeys" from African countries in a phone call with then-President Richard Nixon, according to the former director of Nixon's presidential library.
Tim Naftali, who directed the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum from 2007 to 2011, writes that Reagan — who would later become the 40th President of the United States — called Nixon in October 1971, the day after the United Nations had voted to recognize the People's Republic of China. In the call, he says, Reagan is heard apparently referencing the way the Tanzanian delegation started dancing in the General Assembly when the UN took the vote to seat the delegation from Beijing instead of Taiwan.

    Can you just imagine George Washington’s white house tapes.

    • Well African peoples or slaves werent a threat to power until they were set free after the civil war. Id imagine it was like locker room talk of how good they raped one of their own slaves.

    • Did he keep tapes?

    • George Washington was 200 YEARS before 1971. Reagan and his supporters claimed that he was not a racist. The tape proves that he was.

    • @yadadoo20 Republicans claim Trump is not a racist. No one on earth lies as much as a republican.

    • Now we all know why he and the CIA had no problem flooding foundational black American communities with CRACK COCAINE………Just say no!!!! (Nancy)

    This ain’t breaking news for black people. CNN News y’all late like a MF catch up

    • Reagan was only a small fraction as racist as 99% of black people in the US.

    • Black folks should be thankful to trump for exposing America’s obvious racism and bigotry, america as never been a normal country.

    • @John A. O E make up your mind, you said protest dead presidents, meaning you accepted they was racist and you said fake tapes, which one is fake,or you’re just playing stupid?

      Chris Johannsen funny thing about reagan -whenever a reporter woukd shout a question to him on the WH lawn he’d ALWAYS put his hand up to his ear. And feign not being able to hear them and say what I can’t hear you . I always hated when he’d do that and he did it a lot !

  4. I love how CNN isn’t airing debate live stream on YouTube nor can you find the stream anywhere but on their website

    • And comments disabled. 🇨🇳

      @BadBigBody your right, but defending a paedophile in the Whitehouse is far worse, but fox does it daily, so as much as the have faults I’ll take CNN’s word before fox and the the paedophile!

    • BadBigBody you support pedophiles? I hope your family is aware and never allow you around children. Making excuses and justifications for the sexual abuse of children is beyond disgusting.

  5. I’d like to hear his conversations with the iron lady.

    I vow not to vote for Reagan 2020

      @Naomi Ogle What’s the point.Pls explain.The problem with is not American is browning,I think America is dumbing because of people like you.

    • @princetonscholar Prancing around in blackface, and robes is certainly evidence of what the Democratic party is. They don’t care, and he’s still Govenor. That’s clear evidence of party over principal. Smollett is proof of their attempting to divide Americans by race, and there intention to touch off a race war with lies. All the Democratic candidates are Smollett. They are all Spartacus. They don’t have a cure, they just want to pick the scab. It serves their purposes, and that’s why they don’t want the wound to ever heal. The Democratic party leadership believes what Manson believed, and they share his goals. They intend to rule over Black Americans, because they think Black Americans are to simple to do it for themselves.

    • @Reggie Naidoo The point is sarcasm, but irony is lost on some. His thought seems to be mystery to you, but I understood what he meant right off. If you wish to know my thoughts in making the comment I made about Northam, and Smollett I stated them flatly to our friend the scholar from Princeton. That is right here in this thread. If you wish to make a straw man you’ll find I make poor material. I was born outside the box, you’ll not define me.

      I would still vote for Reagan in 2024 though LOL

  7. Anyone else remembering the Genesis – Land of confusion video starring raygun Ronnie?

  8. David Pannell | July 31, 2019 at 9:29 PM | Reply

    And just exactly what is the point of all this? To inspire more hate? Progress is moving forward isn’t it?

  9. No black person was surprised to hear Regan and racism coinciding.

      Nobody’s shocked

      So you’re saying, All black people think the same, sounds pretty racist to me.

    • Cadillac Kadafi | August 1, 2019 at 11:07 AM | Reply

      @TheTruthIsRacist so instead of calling out the racism you deflect by pinning it on black people, sounds pretty racist to me

    • Cadillac Kadafi | August 1, 2019 at 11:08 AM | Reply

      @TheTruthIsRacist why don’t white people support the Nation of Islam in Louis Farrakhan? All white people shouldn’t think the same, why don’t you support Hitler? All Jews shouldn’t think the same

  11. You guys hear CNN SHUT DOWN THE DAVID PAKMAN SHOW over live streaming and attempting to give his commentary. Pathetic on the behalf of CNN to do that. UNBELIEVABLE

    • Dairy Peak! RL | August 1, 2019 at 8:33 AM | Reply

      They did that to everyone which I agree is authoritarian but David got way too emotional about it. Whenever he calls something disgusting I usually know he’s gonna start whining

    • @Dairy Peak! RL David did kinda over react. Then again he did lose more than just the right to live stream, if it’s not a glitch he lost followers also. On CNN’s part it honestly felt like something petty on their side. The whole situation shouldn’t even exist but yeah I agree.

    • @zac m. doesnt censorship suck? It’s almost as if you shouldnt support censorship for anyone because once you set the precedent they WILL come for you next.

      David WELL AND SURE deserves this I hope he loses everything. Hes one of the worst censorship loving cucks online.

      Shawn Goodson they don’t exist. It’s known however, MLK constantly cheated on his wife, but there is no credible accusation of rape… at all. If you can’t argue with proven facts don’t argue at all. It just makes you look stupid.

      I believe they were talking about idid imin the butcher of rawanda😣

  14. This just in Trump speaking fluent Russian to the Kremlin caught on tape! but first a message from our sponsor. My pillow

  15. This should not surprise anyone, but it is good to document it as an established and proven fact.

  16. Normal people : That’s a terrible thing
    Conservatives : LOL Look at the guy’s ears

    Sarcastic tone: “Wait, are you telling me that Reagan and Nixon were racist; I’m shocked!”

    • Oh, like you aren’t?

    • @99Yteu Why would I be racist?! Racism is an ignorant trait.

    • Maurice Reagan dropping crack in poor black neighborhoods and starting the so call “war on drugs” with mass incarceration removing black fathers from households . Nobody black is shocked by it. He also changed gun laws when black panthers started to carrying guns legally to protect themselves and community from white cops who brought disorder planting crack on people etc. This is why i don’t find trump funny. A racist that has the power of the law in his hands just like reagan and nixon and he used it to destroy blacks he did not count as human just another racist president all of them are even lincon. I don’t stand for the anthem .

    This isn’t news to Black folks. In 2019 the rest of America is seeing evidence of the things we complained about decades ago.
