It’s not special privileges. It’s policy that forces white people not to be racist.


No, it forces people to be racists (or sexists) in that they must hire, appoint, promote, whatever based on race or sex.

There PROBABLY is a RACIAL component in THIS.

 

The DEMS think they OWN blacks through dependency PROGRAMS and want TO GET as many involved PROPERLY registered OR not.

 


I find it quite sad that you still believe that BLACK PEOPLE can't think for themselves.

 

Using phrases like "THE DEMS THINK THEY OWN BLACKS....." not only is incorrect on its face but is a RACIST phrase IN ITSELF.

 

Do you not think that BLACK VOTERS can THINK FOR THEMSELVES?

 

If the REPUBLICAN PARTY was more WELCOMING to BLACK VOTERS; don't you think that BLACK VOTERS would comprise more than 7% of those that identify as REPUBLICANS.

 

By your comment above, it sounds like you think that BLACK VOTERS just go to the PARTY that is the HIGHEST BIDDER.


The comment is not racist. The Dems concept that blacks are incapable of "making it" on their own and must have special, race based programs is racist. 


Once again, you fail to see that your argument has its origin in RACISM.

 

You keep saying THE DEMOCRATS think BLACKS are incapable of making it "ON THEIR OWN" but nowhere and I mean nowhere do you mention what BLACKS THEMSELVES think.

 

While you pretend that your comments are directed toward DEMOCRATS; they are really directed toward BLACK VOTERS.

 

Based on your comments above, you think BLACK VOTERS are paid for with "SPECIAL RACE BASED PROGRAMS" as you call them.

 

Based on your comments above, you obviously think that BLACK VOTERS owe their allegiance to the party that gives them "DEPENDENCY PROGRAMS" rather than voting based on their own personal beliefs

 

It is very clear what you are really saying, @rk9152.

 

Sad.

Isn’t it interesting that fair treatment would be considered a special privilege!

Voting as a citizen is a privilege that we should hold dear and respect. But having the right to vote should not be determined by the color of your skin. If you are an American citizen, then you have the right to vote. And no one else has the right to prohibit you from voting. 

Fair treatment applies to all citizens.

Interesting when those that stoke fears, claim that obstructing voters does not exist. 

Of course they may be the same folks that would deny the GOP mantra: “cheat if you have to”...

-Suppress voting by any means,  especially minorities

-Create phantom illegal voters

-Gerrymandering

-Dark money in politics

-Support religion in politics

-Want to keep slave state electoral college

-Support illegally appointed SC justice

-Support fear, division and lies 

-Give to the rich, take from all others

 

By the way, what platform is the GOP

running on? All of the above?

I love that Conservatives try to make this a LEFT/RIGHT issue while everyone knows it is an ISSUE related to RACE, pure and simple.

 


It IS a left/right issue and nothing to do with race but are the libs saying that blacks aren't able to think for themselves and get id while whites can? Boy, what a racist thought. Fraud is the issue and has nothing to do with race except to the libs.

I can't tell if you are poorly advised or make this stuff up all by your lonesome. But, intelligent people understand that the salary problems started during the Carter Administration as was the result of a changing international economy.
