You think having more black friends makes you less racist. That is identity politics in a nutshell.
You thinks having 3 makes you not?
Every white racist I have ever met has always started out by saying in one variation or another,
"I'm not racist, I use to know a black person once" lol
It's called history, perhaps you skipped that class.
Back then the Democrats were the Republicans and the Republicans were the Democrats.
They switched ideals since then.
Damn! You beat me to it.
But some people won't let facts get in their way.
On a related note,
(Disclaimer - this is an opinion piece but does a nice job of going through the flip-flop of the parties leanings.)
Great minds think a like
You claimed there are no black republicans, I proved you wrong, you whined there were only three. I'm not counting black people, you are.
Democrats are racist to their core, i.e., identity politics. Corrupt media pretends republicans are racist because we promote self-reliance instead of welfare.
History proved us right. There are plenty of racist, bigots on both sides, historically they are mostly democrats.
Fabricated democrat narrative.
The south used to vote Democrat. Now it votes Republican. Why the switch? Was it, as some people say, because the GOP decided to appeal to racist whites? Carol Swain, Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University, explains.
Silly argument about who is more racist has democrats counting black friends.
And when did I ever say there were No black people in the Republican party?
You need to be able to recognize when someone is being sarcastic.
Why is it that the majority of white supremacist groups identify themselves as being Republican? And love Trump?
Why do majority of black Americans identify themselves as being a Democrat?
Whatever helps you sleep at night...
The opening paragraph,
I'm not from the states - but this discussion is interesting; I would vote for the party that charges the least amount of taxes, and upholds the most individual rights.
lol, now Kamala Harris is saying that even democrats are too sexist and racist to vote for her. Sure Kamala, THAT must be it!
Kamala is just going to be Biden's Attorney General, eat up all the corrupt Republicans.
These statements from you today are kinda funny, based on you guys posting old pics of Trump + Sharpton, Jesse etc. Reality is if you even just simply look at DNC/RNC, the RNC was 93% white. Is America 93% white? The DNC, the party is more a reflection of America.
Nunes getting busted today.
Devin Nunes sues CNN for $435M over ‘false and defamatory’ Ukraine story
Impeachment report details contacts between Giuliani, White House, and Devin Nunes
53% of Republicans Think Trump is Better President Than Lincoln
haha, that's pretty telling
Careful, that could be considered a sexist statement by about half of democrats
I'm a little slow today so this post just registered, but this really isn't racist/a race issue. It's classism.
The Dalit story
Although the Indian constitution bans discrimination on the basis of caste, the social, religious and cultural practice of “untouchability” continues unabated.
Formerly known as “untouchables,” Dalits are excluded from social and public spaces, prevented from drawing water from public facilities and segregated in schools.
Since the caste system was formed over 2,000 years ago, a noticeable percentage of the 200 million “Dalits” have been thrust into the lowest occupations of society, such as scavengers and sanitation cleaners, with little upward mobility.
While there has been some progress since India’s independence from the British Empire, the pace of economic growth in mitigating social inequality has been uneven.
So, in an Indian nation that is rapidly modernizing and urbanizing, opportunities for the Dalits still remain limited. The degradation and the health risks of performing menial tasks are substantial.
Furthermore, with the rise of Hindu fundamentalism in national politics, the continuous expansion of liberty and equality of opportunity is by no means a foregone conclusion.
Yep.... whether people like to hear it or not, every nationality practices racism... and the worst racists nowadays: Muslims and Blacks!
She learned that polishing Willie Brown's knob doesn't count for much outside California. She was the least likable and most mercenary of the Dem candidates. And she had heavy competition!
Technically correct but arguing people from one region of India are black but people from another are not, is racism. Judging people on outward, physical attributes unique to their race.
The caste system is worse than Jim Crow laws because there is no state the lower caste can move to.
Just the republicans though.
America is mostly white. There would be more republican minorities if the cultural pressure and media propaganda didn't attack minorities expressing conservative opinions.
What's amazing is you don't have any problem with Schiff monitoring other members of congress and journalist.
Nunes got caught just like those catholic school kids got caught harassing a native american elder.
According to newsweek. That's pretty telling.
Welcome to the Republican party my friend.
President Trump gives support to protesters in Iran and Hong Kong.
While American democrats and businesses are endorsing China's Government for money, President Trump steps up for freedom.
I take naps. The assertion that people like Al Sharpton or Maxine Waters makes the democrat party less racist is asinine.
It's profitable for the media and politicians to accuse republicans of being racist. In fact, our policies are more librarian and focus on individual rights.
Democrats win elections by dividing people by race and telling them they are victims of institutional racism, iow, identity politics. Democrats have a long history of racism. Neither side is without fault.
Republican demographics reflect the population in "fly over" country while democrats dominate large cities and the coast which have a more diverse demographic.
“More Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act as a percentage than Democrats did,”
The democrats were the majority in the 1960's.
Because large cities and coastal states are predominantly democrat with diverse populations. The media encourages the narrative republicans, conservatives are racist because we oppose social programs for ideological reasons.
Minority conservatives are ostracized by culture and a corrupt media. Pretend otherwise, I don't care. You're being sarcastic but democrat party policies are historically racist and still are.
There were and are racist in both parties and always will be. Conservative and libertarian values promote individual rights and equality. Democrats value the collective and group identity.
