Who Said It: Renowned Racist George Wallace Or Donald Trump? We Seriously Can't Tell.

"Somebody’s going to get killed before this primary is over, and I hope it’s not me," said guess who?

WASHINGTON -- GOP front-runner Donald Trump has built his campaign on white fear, populism and threats against protesters. It's not surprising he's drawingcomparisons to another unlikely presidential candidate: former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a fervent champion of racial segregation who died in 1998.

Both candidates share "the demagogue’s instinctive ability to tap into the fear and anger that regularly erupts in American politics," Dan Carter, a professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina, wrote in the The New York Times.

With Trump threatening to ban an entire religious group from traveling to the United States and promising to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, his racially charged rhetoric can be difficult to distinguish from Wallace's.

Can you tell the difference? Give it your best shot:

1. "I love black people, I love white people, I love yellow people."


2. "It's a sad day in this country when you can't talk about law and order unless they want to call you a racist."


3. "I’m owned by the people! I mean, I'm telling you, I'm no angel, but I'm gonna do right by them!"


4. "Somebody’s going to get killed before this primary is over, and I hope it’s not me."


5. "That's a typical case of the press with misinterpretation ... they take a half a sentence. Then they take quarter of a sentence. They put it all together."


6. "If you look at black and African-American youth, I mean to a point where they've just about never done more poorly; there's no spirit."


7. "If any demonstrator ever lies down in front of my car, it'll be the last car he'll ever lie down in front of."


8. "It seems that other parts of the world ought to be concerned about what we think of them instead of what they think of us. After all, we're feeding most of them and whenever they start rejecting 25 cents of each dollar of foreign aid money that we send to them, then I'll be concerned about their attitude toward us."


9. "I'm not a racist. I don't have a racist bone in my body." 


10. "Protesters, they realize there are no consequences to protesting anymore. There used to be consequences. There are none anymore."


11. "A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market. I think sometimes a black may think they don't have an advantage or this and that." 


12. "We must not be misled by left-wing incompetent news media that, day after day, feed us a diet of fantasy telling us we are bigots, racists and hate-mongers."
