Trump is not racist. — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 14, 2018But Trump has a history of inflammatory statements that utilize racist stereotypes and tropes specifically about black people.

Databases of lawyers that attempt to help people seeking help—Avvo Legal Services, Rocket Lawyer, and LegalZoom—have all met major backlash. “In countries where specialists are allowed to give legal advice, studies find that they do better than lawyers.

I'm sure the people who have turned to r/legaladvice for legal help, or even just to learn, would agree.
