I understand the quote.  But I just don't understand why they have the face of an obvious "fork-tongued, slick speaking, self serving swap monster" pictured with it!

Dictionary (Meriam Webster): a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race



There is simply none of this in Ed's post, yet you see racism? Where is it? Of course you are free to make up whatever definition of racism suits you, but it loses it's meaning when improperly applied.

He used the race card several times in his post.




Race card

DescriptionPlaying the race card is an idiomatic phrase that refers to the exploitation of either racist or anti-racist attitudes in the audience. Wikipedia

KidBoy2:  Thanks for asking. All have to do is read what Ed posted...

 

 

 

 

Then you have your own personal definition of what constitutes racism that is different than the meaning in a dictionary.

Could you possibly give a detailed explanation of exactly what you consider to be racism?

People who are brown, black, who speak languages other than English and especially working class and poor whites- that's me, by the way- and old people who have health needs and other needs must see the republicans for what they are- greedy, wicked people who see anyone else who looks, speaks, or works differently from them as only tools to be used when wanted and discarded and ignored the rest of the time. The repubs have done a masterful job of getting middle and low class white folks to believe that tRump and his supporters are working for the good of "traditional" values. It makes me ill to see fellow rural, white, lower class white folks slobbering over tRump and his kind. These evil men do not give a rat's hiney for poor people- of any color.

What a racist post.

Talking about dividing the country that is what your post is trying to do. You sound like the nasty group of new congresswomen called "the squad".

 

 

Could you possibly give a detailed explanation of exactly what you consider to be racism? It's not a one size fits all name for anything that displeases you, so I'd really like to hear what you think it is.

Good morning to all-

The present occupant of the White House is a vile, nasty, selfish, greedy, crooked liar of an individual who never did a day's work in his life.

But he's just the most obvious tip of the conservative iceberg.



Friends, the current vileness of the republican party wants to divide our country so they can more easily dominate and work their will on the great majority of the country. Unless you are rich, white, part of the big money segment of the country, and able to go and do whatever you want whenever you want while you live behind your gated community gates and count your investment income the republican party has NOTHING for you except evil words and more evil intentions.

From their manipulating of voting boundaries to whipping up unthinking support from poor white folks, the repubs have gone a long way toward taking over the country and making it over in their own image- which is a revolting thing to consider.



We don't have to accept this. We can do better. We can vote these vile, wicked people out and try to get politicians who will at least listen to the concerns of the real people of our country- not just the people with lots and lots of money.



Good day to all- Ed from Alabama

So anyone that tells the truth about trump is a "squad" or "nasty"?   If hate is not good for one's health then why support trump spreading so much of it?
