A large majority of the Republicans I've known personally have been racist. [View all]

Way before Trump, and part of why their current embrace of overt racism is not all that surprising.

From my non-scientific personal experience, I'd say non-racist white Republicans are about as rare as black Republicans.

Not generally "in your face", in my experience, but it slips out. Like "why do they get to call us honkys" or "black people are the real racists" or some gripe about affirmative action or whatever.

The non-racist Republicans I've known have usually been pseudo-intellectual libertarian "pro-business" types -- which is a mental illness of its own, and is often accompanied by racism, but not always.
