Do you agree that saying that Hard work, objective thinking, delayed gratification and Mastering/controlling ones nature are white things (and the inference that black people don't believe in those things) is a extremely racist statement?

It was a joke playing off Trumps "I am the least racist person in the world".

if I said half of these (especially reversed) I'd be racist


Like this? Is this what they are trying to say?(FTR, these are not my personal beliefs but rather the flip side of what they are saying)
