That statement is another of those inaccuracies that I observe and comment on.  Great!  Then you have many examples to share with forum readers where you stood up to racism, racist behavior and took a positive stand speaking out agaisnt bigotry and racial hatred. Warning readers....don't hold your breath.

Seems like going personal to dodge the truths I reveal about other posts when I observe and comment. What I have or have not done in the past nor what I am doing or not doing today in any way relates to your inaccurate comments about discrediting racism.

The most effective way to promote racism is to not allow intelligent discussion on the subject while using "dog whistles" to let other racists know you're on their side.

 

The Fascist Five of SCOTUS gutted the Voting Rights Act and immeiately those States previously identified as having racist statutes began reinstating Jim Crow in disguise.

 

But if you expose this resurgence of institutional racism, the Republicans will call YOU racist, hoping to end the discussion before the MAJORITY, who are not racist, figure out THEY need to ACT to end LEGALIZED racism AGAIN.


Conservatism and Fascist are not interchangeable terms so your SCOTUS assumption is wrong.

 

There is no LEGALIZED RACISM so that assumption is wrong.

 

DOG WHISTLE is just a dishonest term when one DOES NOT have any RATIONAL way of making their POINT.

Another case of a poster setting up a false premise and then fighting with him/her/itself.

 

No one has denied the existence of white nationalism.
