Donald Trump clothing line made in Mexico by Marcraft Apparel Group to save money

Racist and hypocrite Donald Trump says Mexicans are stealing jobs from US citizens and mooching off the government. Then why does his clothing line make his "signature collection" fabrics and suits in Mexico? Shouldn't he make all his products in the US to help the US economy?

My original post is here which has been shared over 25,000 times. YOU CAN USE THE PHOTO. No need to call or email me. Just use it.



Donald Trump has a clothing line. The suits are made by Marcraft Apparel Group run by CEO Sheldon Brody in New York RN #...

On top of this independent researchers found the quality of the wool was less than what was listed on the clothing.

CEO of Marcraft Apparel Group Sheldon Brody admits their textile and manufacturing is done in Mexico.

Donald Trump, you should end your ridiculous run for President immediately because you are a racist hypocrite.

Here is his clothing line from his website. This is the meta description tag of the page "Donald J Trump Collections offers the pinnacle of style and prestige in the form of men's suits, dress shirts, cuff links, neckwear, belts, eyewear and more."

http://www.trump.com/merchandise/signature_collection.asp

Here is the line selling in Macy's. All it says in this site is that the clothes are "imported."

It just gets worse. His eyewear collection is made in China. His leather goods are made in India. His cuff links are made in China.

Trump admits his products are made in China. He admits that China steals jobs from the US.

"China is raping this country,"

"Donald Trump, who has repeatedly accused China of stealing manufacturing jobs from the U.S., acknowledged today that an array of Trump-branded clothes, accessories and other products are made in China.

The real estate and casino mogul, who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, blamed China for the fact that Trump ties, Trump cufflinks and even Trump teddy bears come with a "Made in China" label."

His wife Melania's cheap costume jewelry is made in China.

The post has been picked up by Univision, Telemundo and many others. Now everyone realizes Donald Trump is a hypocrite.

Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary sold their convent at 3431, 3441 Waverly, Los Feliz for $15,500,000

Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent, sale Katy Perry, Dana Hollister, Archbishop Jose Gomez, 3441 Waverly, Los Feliz 90027
Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Archbishop Jose Gomez, Katy Perry, and the owner of the Brite Spot are in disagreement over the sale of the Sisters' convent. The Medievalish former Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent is located in the hills of Los Feliz. The archdiocese emptied it out in 2011, against the will of the nuns. Now Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez says he has the right to sell the place and he plans to sell it to pop star Katy Perry for about $14.5 million, reports the LA Times. Two of the last five living nuns say they have the right to sell the place and they've already sold it to local restaurateur/aspiring hotelier Dana Hollister for about $15.5 million.

Dana Hollister is legally in a purchase agreement with the nuns who own the property. The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary broke off from the Catholic church in the 1960's. I know because they were the nuns at my catholic school. The Catholic church has always treated the nuns as second class religious citizens below the male Priests. Nuns are the teachers and nurses in the church. The church treats them like maids.

This group of nuns split from the church because they didn't like being treated like lower class and didn't want to take instruction from the church. When they broke off they bought their own property. There are quite a few convents which they own. The archbishop of LA Jose Gomez is trying to say the church owned the convent. They kicked the nuts out in 2011. I don't know how they managed that. I do know that the church has kicked a lot of the elderly nuns out. Nuns work for the church their entire lives in exchange for having a place to stay when they are old.

I hope Dana Hollister's lawyers make sure the deal goes through for the nuns. The church has kicked nuns out of other convents including Good Shepherd Catholic Church. They turned the convent into a visitor's center yet left the priests and monsignor's house intact. Go, Nuns!

Here is the basic title, deed, plat map of the place.

Dylann Storm Roof, Dylann Roof, Bennett Roof, Charleston Church massacre - Mary Cummins, Los Angeles

June 18, 2015 Dylann Roof went into the Charleston Church, sat for 45 minutes of prayer then opened fire on the parishioners killing nine. Everyone's first reaction was extreme sorrow which turned into a compulsion to understand the motive for such a racist and senseless killing spree.

Dylann Storm Roof was born April 3, 1994 in South Carolina to father Franklin Bennett Storm and Amelia "Amy" Cowles. He had behavioral problems in middle school and had to repeat a grade. He dropped out of school after the ninth grade and never returned. Someone who drops out of school at this age obviously has major problems.

Dylann's father Benn Storm is a contractor. Based on divorce documents he was abusive to both of his wives. He was distant to his children. After his second wife left him there was no one to care about Dylann or his sister Amber. Because of Dylann's social and behavioral issues this had more of a profound effect on Dylann. Left alone he appears to have become depressed and angry. He directed his anger toward black people.

While his manifesto in his website ... UPDATE: Website is now gone. I saved it and had the web archive save a copy as well. Looks like six other people had the same idea.  http://web.archive.org/web/20150620135047/http://lastrhodesian.com/data/documents/rtf88.txt says he wasn't raised in a racist environment I find it hard to believe he could have such strong racist hatred by himself. He states that whites are superior to blacks. I believe this most likely came from his father, relatives, friends. This is as stupid as saying a white piece of paper is superior to a black piece of paper.

While his manifesto gives us a tiny window into his thoughts and feelings it's still very hard to understand all his hatred. For him to go to a church and kill people as they prayed is just too difficult to understand or comprehend. While the relatives of the people who were killed forgave Dylann in court I do not feel forgiveness for this person. Something is very wrong for a young man to feel such racist hatred and then take it out on innocent people praying in a church.

He stated his goal was to cause a civil war. I can only hope his evil act instead opens up a deep conversation into how we can end racism in our country. I was fortunate to grow up in Los Angeles in the 1960's in a melting pot of races, cultures and religions. Only a couple of times did I see racism in elementary school. I saw none in high school. I did see quite a bit in college at USC but it went both ways. I hope we can use this tragedy to end racism in our country so more innocent people will not have to die.

Below is a screen  capture of his website.

I have always been against racism for many reasons. The first is from a very early experience as a young child. My best friend growing up as a little kid was black. I would tell my Nana how great my school friend was. My Nana said I should ask my friend to a sleep over and I did. When she arrived my Nana saw she was black and sent her away. I was so upset crying and did not understand. Another family member said my Nana was racist and racism was wrong. They probably used different words as I was only six. Next day at school I was worried my friend would not want to be my friend any more after my Nana sent her away. She came up to me and said her mom explained it all and we could still be friends. I was relieved. I didn't really understand what racism was until years later. I still don't understand how people can be racist. Try as I might I could never convince my Nana that racism was wrong. She also thought gays were sinners then refused to believe Liberace whom she adored was gay.

The second reason has to do with my Mexican grandmother. My grandmother was born in Mexico in 1899 in the Federal District of Tacubaya. My grandmother raised me here in Los Angeles, California. I thought I was 100% Mexican. I know, blonde hair, white skin, green eyes. I was five and didn't realize that I didn't "look" Mexican even though I was part Mexican. I didn't realize people thought that Mexican means brown skin. When I was about six my Nana told me not to speak Spanish outside of the house. This was my first inkling that Mexicans were not thought to be the best people. To be a Mexican was to be ashamed.

Growing up I heard people say horrible things about Mexicans. They are lazy, alcoholics, criminals, rapists and gang members. None of my relatives were anything like that. I took offense when they said these things to me. Looking white they assumed I must also hate Mexicans and blacks? I heard the most racist things imaginable from college and on from other people about blacks, mexicans, arabs, asians....  I even had one guy from my gym say "we pure whites must stick together. Our race has been muddied by other races." WTH?

Donald Trump announced his run for presidency a few days ago. It his announcement speech he bashed Mexicans! From the mouth of Donald Trump,

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best. They're not sending you, they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they're telling us what we're getting." "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words."

While I most certainly would have never voted for Trump his racist remarks about Mexicans make it so I never want to see him speak again. There is no room for racism in the United States. We are a mix of many different cultures, ethnicities, religions, languages.... We left Europe to start our own country here so we could be equal and free or at least that was the goal. Instead we dominated the natives, dominated other races and cultures that moved to America and we had African slaves. In reality we just didn't want to be dominated by British rule. We wanted to be able to be the dominator of others which we did. Racism is still alive and strong in the US. This is why I'm so against racism.

Rachel Anne Dolezal Moore, birth date, family tree, geneology, parents, heritage - Mary Cummins,

Rachel Anne Dolezal Moore, Lawrence Albert Dolezal, Ruthanne Schertel Dolezal, Esther "Luna" Dolezal, Zachariah Dolezal, Ezra Dolezal, Izaiah Dolezal, Libby Montana, Spokane, Washington, black, white, race, color, identity

UPDATE: 06/17/15: Rachel Dolezal is now extremely happy about all the media and other attention she is getting. She featured herself on The Morning Show on her personal profile with her bio son and adopted son/brother.

I read a bit more about her bio brother Joshua. Her brother wrote a book about his life growing up in his strict Pentecostal family http://www.amazon.com/Down-Mountaintop-From-Belief-Belonging/dp/1609382390 The book is "Down from the Mountaintop: From Belief to Belonging." It seems they both grew up Christian home schooled. From a review,

"A lyrical coming-of-age memoir, Down from the Mountaintop chronicles a quest for belonging. Raised in northwestern Montana by Pentecostal homesteaders whose twenty-year experiment in subsistence living was closely tied to their faith, Joshua Dole┼żal experienced a childhood marked equally by his parents’ quest for spiritual transcendence and the surrounding Rocky Mountain landscape. Unable to fully embrace the fundamentalism of his parents, he began to search for religious experience elsewhere: in baseball, books, and weightlifting, then later in migrations to Tennessee, Nebraska, and Uruguay. Yet even as he sought to understand his place in the world, he continued to yearn for his mountain home."

Seems they were both home schooled in a very strict religious manner. Then they went to college. I would think their first experience in a school other than their home had a great effect on both Rachel and Joshua. They made their first independent friends. Someone said earlier there is more to the story and there definitely is. Still, Rachel, no matter her upbringing, showed poor judgment and lack of integrity lying about being black. I'm actually amazed no one called her on this before.

Earlier I was willing to give this woman the benefit of the doubt that she identifies as black in terms of culture, community and just got a little carried away and didn't correct people when they assumed she was biracial. It's hard to discern between racial identity crisis/confusion and racial identity as a fixed thing. I'm more likely to believe some gender identity issues are real and permanent as they are evident as such a young age. Maybe if a white/black child were raised in a black/white family I could see the child believing they are the race of the parents even though they aren't.

As a kid I thought I was 100% Mexican because my Nana raised me and she was Mexican. I realized I was only half around age six or so. When I was seven I realized I had lighter skin and hair than our 100% Mexican relatives. I still felt Mexican based on culture and everything else. Still, I never lied and said I had a Mexican mother and father.

Rachel here goes back and forth about her color. It's like she's playing two race cards depending upon the situation. To fight her ex husband in a custody battle she was white. To work for the NAACP she was part black. To sue her ex-employer for racial discrimination she stated she was white. To apply to be a commissioner she was part black. Just pick a color and stick with it.

When asked about her color she stated "I don't stay out of the sun." In reality she had a membership to a tanning salon. Previously she said she didn't dye her skin. Now she admits she uses a "little bronzer to feel pretty." If she used bronzer, self tan all her life, I could believe that. She was white as a lily when she married a black man. Why did she later take up using fake tan? I agree I feel better with a little color and I'm not as white as Rachel. Still, she's very fair and is now medium tan. I pity her skin.

I have a feeling the Rachel story will get messier before it's over. Rachel loves the media attention and doesn't realize she's putting her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. I doubt she'll ever come clean with the truth even if she gets that DNA test on her parents. I believe she has some major issues to be playing such a strange game about her color. I'd like to be darker but I'm not. I am what I am. Not much I can do about it.

UPDATE: 06/15/15: Things keep getting messier. Rachel's older brother Joshuah was sued for allegedly sexually assaulting Rachel's adopted younger sister Esther Dolezal. Rachel claims her brother also sexually assaulted and harassed her. Rachel also claims her ex-husband hit their child and left bruises.

http://reverbpress.com/news/rachel-dolezals-white-older-brother-faces-trial-felony-sexual-assault-child/

In more disturbing news Rachel sued her school for racial discrimination in 2002 for not giving her a job because she was white. She lost, appealed and lost again. Perhaps Rachel will say she pretended to be black to overcome the discrimination she felt in a mainly black school. We shall see.

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/bizarre/rachel-dolezal-discrimination-lawsuit-786451

UPDATE: This morning Rachel Dolezal stepped down. I think it was the right decision. Her situation was a distraction to the cause. I also agree with this statement below, She just should have been honest. I could see how she want want to be considered black, be pushed in that direction because she was white and wanted to be in the black community, world. Still, you need to be honest. I don't identify with my bio mom. Still, I admit she is my bio mom. My face looks like her face. My skin and eye color are a little similar to her skin and eye color. I do state that my maternal grandmother is my "real" mom as she raised me. I identify more with my grandmother in regard to culture, ethics and morals.

"It's not about race; it's about integrity," member Kitara Johnson said. "If you're a leader, you have to have integrity. She clearly lacks integrity. The other piece is credibility."
________________________

I heard about the Rachel Anne Dolezal story few days ago. I was in bed because of my back so I couldn't research it easily. I was finally able to take a better look at this case.

I don't have a problem with a white woman being interested in African studies, African art, being heavily involved in the African American community and civil rights. I fully support all of this. I personally feel she just shouldn't have lied about her bio family. We don't pick our parents. We do pick our spouse, friends and the rest of our family. My bio mother was not a good person but I still admit she was my bio mother.

My two best friends growing up were both black. I can understand how you could identify with your friends. I can also understand wanting to be part of that culture. I would try to make my hair like my friend and she'd try to make her hair like mine. That is natural for kids, teens and young adults. Even comedian Cho said she went through a phase where she dressed, acted and spoke like a Puerto Rican. Some kids in my high school would talk black, got 'fros and totally acted as if they were from the projects when they were from Beverly Hills.

As I take a look into Rachel's life she has done a lot of good for the African community and civil rights. I did read where she went to a mainly black college and was resented by other students for being white. People didn't take her seriously in that school. I could see why she might want to prove herself to others as a proponent of African Americans.

Below is Rachel Anne Dolezal's family tree. As far as I can see she was born with German, Czech ancestry. The tree goes back farther but it won't fit here easily. If there is any American Indian, it must be on the mother's side.

That said I can see how a person can identify as "black," "African American" and be caucasian. I have black, gay, disabled friends, friends with different religions and I get upset when I see their rights trampled upon. I am offended when people offend them. I stand up for their rights even though I'm not black, gay...

I hope she releases a statement saying her bio parents are who they are but she identifies as black. I don't have a problem with it. I do see black people who are upset with this. I guess they feel she hasn't truly felt what it is like to be a black person so how can she identify as black. Living in the black community with black friends, husband, son, relatives can easily make one feel part of that community. She's probably standing right by her black friends when they are attacked with racist comments. I've seen white people racially attacked just for being friends with black people. White people are more likely to attack white people who marry or have children with black people. That type of racism, discrimination, hate is real.

Rachel Anne Dolezal Moore, Lawrence Albert Dolezal, Ruthanne Schertel Dolezal, Joshuah, Joshua, Esther "Luna" Dolezal, Zachariah Dolezal, Ezra Dolezal, Izaiah Dolezal, Libby Montana, Spokane, Washington, black, white, race, color, identity

Hopefully we can all learn from this situation. You don't have to be black, white, Asian, gay, disabled... to identify, sympathize, empathize with people and help who are different than you. I'm an animal activist and I'm not an animal. I don't have to be an animal to identify with the problems facing animals in order to help them.
