Yet again, you miss an opportunity to condemn blatant racism and choose istead to defend racists.


I defended no racist, I pointed out faulty logic by people who think a bit too highly of themselves..


Too highly of themselves? Because heaven forbid two black guys call out blatant racism. How dare they?

The true "embarrassment" is that some don't see the embarrassment in it.

 

OK, now I will await someone here trying to defend the racist words of Steve King.

 

Oops, it's already happened !

Your article brought up an interesting point in reference to a collegiate law suite. It had to do with the acceptance of pro- but not anti- affirmative action speakers.

 

And then there is your thinking on the "bs ideology". I assume you are referring to Conservatism. What in that ideology do you consider racist?

 

As to "follow the money and your article - I looked back "followed the money" and came to realize that there is no fiscal connectivity between me and Koch so I guess my roots are acceptable to you.

Important point made there - any given individual has never been capable of determining whether they themselves are racist - only other persons of differing cultural, ethnic, and  racial groups are capable of making that determination.

That's right - white conservative males have never had the capacity and ability to determine and state accurately whether Steve King, trump, and others of their sort are racist or not - they are too close to the trees to be able to have an accurate view of the forest...

It's not surprising to see how often that sort of misstatement is fatuously made by white male conservatives who seem to believe that they have the ability to convince others that they are not racially biased...
