I agree 110% and those that see otherwise are the problem!

You do you, Soosie. But data say you’re wrong. People of color know the real deal.

 

“Looking forward, an overwhelming 88% of blacks say the country needs to keep making changes for blacks to have equal rights with whites.”

Of course - anyone raised on a constant diet of being told you are a victim and that you need the Dems in government to protect you. And then, because of the circumstances of your birth you end up in a gang infested neighborhood and, naturally see more police action then elsewhere.

 

Then along comes an interviewer with a clipboard asking if you, as a black, are mistreated - the results are obvious.

 

BTW - bias - look at the headline and then look at the big film clip published with it.

You're fighting a losing battle. You are suggesting treating people as equals. To the left there are certain protected groups that must be taken care of by their betters.

 

They can offend because .... well, just because. But their feeling cannot be hurt because ..... well, just because.

You can defend racism all you want. It will never be a morally valid choice.


What is racist about bugging Dems about their Puerto Rican all expenses paid vacation in the middle of the partial government closing??


These quotes don’t address that. Here, Not Happening is condoning a white person’s calling a black person the n-word.   Try to keep up.


I didn't condone a white person calling a black person the n-word as YOU claimed. I said: "sure you can when they use the h-word".

Yeah. You did.

And that's exactly what they do....endlessly.

Thanks for posting a visual example of a large part of the trump base. What class! What impeccable style and grace! 


Highly offensive interpretation. How do you know it wasn't staged to be used as part of the "hate Republicans" movement?
