The mainstream media, the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton have all accused the Republican candidate for president, Donald J. Trump of making racist statements. While I disagree, I do see where, if you wanted to be intellectually cute, one could at least raise the concern.

That being said, where is the same media in responding to a WikiLeaks email taken from Hillary Clinton's national campaign chairman John Podesta?

Here is what I am referring to:

"What makes for successful immigration? It’s no brain surgery, but the media have long failed to provide a clear credible answer. They are unable to come up with an answer or don’t like the answer that’s staring them in the face. The main reason behind successful immigration should be painfully obvious to even the most dimwitted of observers: Some groups of people are almost always highly successful given only half a chance (Jews*, Hindus/Sikhs and Chinese people, for example), while others (Muslims, blacks** and Roma***, for instance) fare badly almost irrespective of circumstances. The biggest group of humanity can be found somewhere between those two extremes – the perennial overachievers and the professional never-do-wells." - to John Podesta February 21, 2017 6:10 p.m.

The list of recipients also includes many members of liberal media outlets such as Huffington Post and Politico.

Had this conversation been confiscated with links to the Trump campaign, we could allow Hillary the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave right now.

Now other conservative and Trump supporters are reporting that Podesta was the author, I believe he is merely one of the recipients after carefully studying the chain of the email. I am though, quite uncomfortable with the fact that Podesta neither corrects or admonishes the author in the information provided but he should not be within a mile of this kind of rhetoric.
