Transgender Woman Takes On Clint Eastwood, Donald Trump - Speech Doesn't Go According To Plan

Apparently, racism had a different name back in elderly actor Clint Eastwood’s day.

“We’re really in a pussy generation,” Eastwood, a longtime conservative, recently told Esquire. “Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

Eastwood, 86, says he plans to vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump who is “onto something” with his rejection of a “kiss-ass” generation that is too politically correct.

LGBT rights activist Sarah McBride, the first openly transgender person to speak at the Democratic national convention, had to explain to Eastwood why racists weren’t called racists back in his day.

“What was considered racist in 1930 is not an accurate barometer of what actually is racist,” she said, according Yahoo News. “And if he’s approaching these issues with a 1930s or 1940s lens, then I can see why he doesn’t fully understand it. It’s pretty outdated.”

She took to Twitter to ask for examples of things that weren’t considered racist in the 1930s, but actually are like Jim Crow laws, a segregated military and opposition to anti-lynching laws.

Whatever Trump is “onto,” McBride says it isn’t a good thing.

“People in this country are good and decent, and do not want to target their fellow Americans and their neighbors for discrimination or mean-spirited and hurtful attacks,” she said.
