I don't know that I'd call it racist, but it is statist and collectivist and it places me in a group that I did not consent to be placed in. If I'm in a gated community that has decided to put a fence around the community, I can leave if I don't want to be there. There are many things I don't have necessarily have a problem with, that I'm not comfortable with the government doing. The wall would be one of them. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/275431-ron-paul-trumps-mexico-wall-sounds-like-theft

"If I'm in a gated community that has decided to put a fence around the community, I can leave if I don't want to be there."

Countries work the same way; you can leave if you don't want to be there. In America, you don't have to leave; you can simply move to other parts of America to get away from the wall so it doesn't impact your life, such as where I'm located in the northwest. America is huge and people have the freedom to move to new places or leave America; it may not be easy, but they have the freedom if they choose to exercise it. I've done it myself, so others can't do it too, but only if they're bold enough, and most people I've met aren't. Most people I've met would rather bitch than do something for themselves to get what they want; and I wouldn't be surprised if you're one of those people.
