i can't believe anyone would seriously consider that a "fact finding' tour. It was a boondoggle. I'm not objecting to it, I understand it is quite common.

 

Now, how can suggesting "vacationers" go back there be racist?

 

 

It divides us by taking a perfectly innocent comment and making it one more thing to insult and fight over.

 

Example - I point out the reality and I am a "minion". And it is used to make a claim of "incipent" racism among Republicans.

 

But, the bottom line remains, "...the racism in the shouted remark..." - what is racist about it??

Sure you can when they use the h-word.


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.


My question relates to the topic. Do you think his shout was racist?

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".

 

Try to keep up!


Yeah. You did.

Try to keep up...........................I would like to see the fact that a Government, newly elected official called the President using the MF word. What would one call that other than a limited vocabulary?
