Even when it doesn't sound like ethnoracism is at the base of what republicans are saying, ethnoracism is usually at the base of their motives because so many republican minds are so poisoned by white supremacy that they cannot separate

- "poor" from "not white" 

- "Muslim" from "not white"
- "immigrant" from "not white"

The members of their lunatic fringe that Trumpthuglican hate built were not confused when they shot men from India as "Muslims."  These white shooters know they were only intended to understand "not white" from Chump's hateful rhetoric.

But at least one republican who has access to the Very White House finally figured out that they had to send up MUSLIM BAN 2 sans an attack on Muslims with links to affluent white people -- like those that work at Apple, Amazon, Google, etc. All Chump and the gang had to do was stay away from those with sponsors enough and money enough to get green cards, visas etc. The corporate giants that leaped to their feet in order to help destroy MUSLIM BAN 1 have, so far, mostly stayed sitting in their seats for MUSLIM BAN 2.

The republicans REPEAL AND REPLACE has its roots in ethnoracist motivations too. Believe it.

The reason white republicans think they can use REPEAL AND REPLACE to take from the poor and give to the rich by getting rid of Obamacare taxes on the wealthy is because the white supremacist base that elected Donald Trump into office erroneously believes that "the poor" are black and brown. 

The poverty rate for white people may be 10% or less but they
are close to 70% of the population. Black and Brown folk are
a much smaller slice of the total population.
Republicans have been using "the poor" as code for "black and brown" forever. And it's  safe to use because white people who are poor are part of those white people making 10,000 a year to 500,000 dollars a year that voted for Trump while referring to themselves as "working class."

And now, while defending TRUMPCARE tax cut for the rich, a r
epublican representative told CNN that the poor were going to have to give up their iphones and pay for their own healthcare. 

When Rep. Jason Chaffetz got backlash for that comment, he went to FOX NEWS and clarified his comment by saying the same thing again using different words.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz faced a torrential backlash Tuesday about the way he framed the difficult decisions poorer Americans may have to make when it comes to their insurance under a new Republican plan to slim down Obamacare.
"Americans have choices, and they've got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care," Chaffetz said on CNN.
He faced an immediate uproar on social media, with accusations that he was insensitive to the high cost of health care or the lives of low-income people. The Utah congressman later appeared on Fox News, where he sought to clarify his iPhone remark.... 

Chaffetz's iphone remark is a straight-up "those people" remark. White people and people who will think they are honorary white people until it's too late conflate race and poverty constantly. (And, frankly, Bernie Sanders does it too; He just feels sorry for the inferior black and brown people who can't do any better without assistance.)  Once you decide poor people are a "those people" and the pale almost always assign those people a darker skin tone than themselves, that's when it is easiest to imply that "those people" are either 80% con-artist or 80% character deficient. 

"What we're trying to say and maybe I didn't say it as smoothly as I possibly could, but people need to make a conscious choice and I believe in self-reliance," Chaffetz said. "And they're going to have to make those decisions."

Translation:  THOSE PEOPLE, the poor people that need assistance paying for their healthcare are character deficient losers that spend their money on luxury items instead of paying for health insurance for themselves and their children. 

By the way, within our first TRUMPCARE proposal we put that 30% premium on THOSE PEOPLE who drop their coverage then resume coverage again because we're certain they are con-artists trying to bilk the health insurance companies -- not people who drop coverage because, as poor people, they are have extra financial difficulties from time to time.

Never doubt the white supremacy motives of the GOP, no matter whose face the words are coming out of. 

Never doubt the republican devotion to giving more to the very white one-percenters either.  Nothing else would make republicans challenge Obamacare over and over again for 6 our of 8 years other than getting more money back into the hands of rich white people.
