“Of the wealth of Morgan’s quotes calling for immigration restrictions and a southern border wall, one from a Fox News appearance on January 14immediately stands out as his oddest statement on child migrants. “I’ve been to detention facilities where I’ve walked up to these individuals that are so-called minors, 17 or under,” Morgan told host Tucker Carlson. “I’ve looked at them — and I’ve looked at their eyes, Tucker — and I’ve said, ‘That is a soon-to-be MS-13 gang member.’ It’s unequivocal.”


Ms-13 is not a race.


You need to get your analogies straight.  He’s dehumanizing and stereotyping Latino youth by assuming they are gang members, or soon to be gang members. Just by looking at them. 

 

What you are saying is more like saying “criminals are not a race” if someone assumed they could look at black kids and know they were criminals.

Wrong Keith Lawrence

Their explanation of structural racism is the simplest I could find. But it’s the accepted standard.

Ms-13 is not a race.

 

Neither are the Black Panthers yet white Conservatives cite them endlessly.

Maybe in the minds of many since they get piad to write...unlike Ken in the piece YOU posted....They are just saying what some ears and eyes want. And the Cons posting here aren't???

 

Their opinions are no greater than anyone one else.  And yours is?

 

What I see here are this core group who want to come back with "RACIST" for anything that is posted by someone other than the ego strokers who give kudos to one another. What I see here are Cons expressing their lack of tolerance for a differeing viewpoint.  Defing racism is easy.  How would YOU define it, Soosie?

White guilt and "social justice" are how Terry Keleher makes his living. And yet, he never mentioned MS-13 being a race.

 

Considering the date of that conference he must have been either the father of white guilt or an early apostle.

I didn't see a race mentioned. I see age. I bet the old "How now brown cow" is racist, and pasteurized". I bet "black eyed peas" are racist. I bet "red peppers" are too. Heck, any thing with color is racist and we Conservatives just keep on and on steppng over the racist line. How in the world we will ever get the racist people in line that don't come here to read? I was thinking about brown rice for dinner, but I'm afraid the racist police will come for me, and God knows how wicked our law enforcement is! I'm a total wreck. May have to start smoking again. Oh, no, the tobacco is brown and the smoke is grey. The matches have a red tip! What to do? What to do?

Being the jokester you are, Soosie, you know, being the "comedian" you've claimed you did part-time, are you joking, playing the naive southern girl, or actually think food can be used as a racist meme?

Par for the course for trump and his base.  No doubt he'll get the support he needs from his racist base.  But we know the Cons are the BEST mind-readers....we see it here in this forum routinely on a daily basis.


I wonder if "we" could expand on that a bit. It is the left that is constantly posting about Conservatives being terrified, or Evangelicals being driven nuts and the like. Can "we" point to something similar to make his/her/it's/their point?
