Gonna be difficult.

Honesty in conservatives/republicans is scarcer than hen's teeth.

Have pity for Melania - she hasn't yet got rid of that ugly fat.

It is teling in the extreme that our resident winger thinks maintaining a status quo of Jim Crow in North Carolina is okay because "maintaining" a vile system is not the same as creating one????

Even more "teling" is that one of our resident radical leftists is stuck in the '60s

 

Then he goes on to suggest that trying to redress a wrong using the power of the Courts is wrong because the innocent victims should do it themselves?

And then "he" suggests that making up an issue to attack a member of the "wrong" political Party is dishonest.

 

Further, NOT leaving the solution to the powerless victims is racist because the victims of the institutional racism of the Republican Party are being made to appear inferior to the whites who wrote the laws that institutionalized the laws that made the victims politically powerless?

Further dealing with a "problem" perceived only through racist eyes ("They are helpless without Massa taking care of them") is simply racism by any definition you want to accept.

 

Does he ever read what he writes before hitting "Post"?

He does - and I gotta tell ya, "he" wishes "he" could find someone to honestly discuss these issues with without the childishness of GOPerDupe and "36 years ago".

Start a post about voter id, and racist's opinions of minorities, why don't you? Read the headline - this one is about a Trump nomination.


How, exactly, can a GOPer separate their actions from the consequences of their actions with such ease? Does this inability to accept responsibility stem from their nurture or their very Nature?

Have you tried lately to acquire an ID?
First of all  is cost money they do charge you for your ID  and if you need a birth Certificate they will charge you also to obtain one.
due to the fact that those poor pleople will probably never need a passport. and in reality they don't care if they vote or not, Yes you will find that not making this process easier is one of the reasons as to why so many don't have an ID card.

That is why I am saying that both political parties should be the ones that at the time of party registration they should also deal with the ID problem and help or obtain an ID for those people. 
After all it is in their interest that they vote, isn't it?


Nice post - but that's not really quite on-topic...

The topic is that trump appointed another white republican racist who, like Sessions, will undoubtedly be telling racially biased lies to support racially biased gerrymandering.

Minority vote suppression through ID laws is a sister example of republican/conservative moral and ethical bias/prejudice/decay/rot...

 


Actually, the topic is not "another white republican racist". It is a man who defended the requirement for voter IDs for all races.

 

For some unknown reason, a race neutral position is "racist" to the radical left.

Here's my original post:

In the federal court district of eastern North Carolina, with a 27% black population that has never had a black judge, Trump wants to fill the longest running district court vancncy in country with an attorney who fought for the GOP's effort to disenfranchise black voters in North Carolina with a voter ID law, and racial gerrymandering. Both of those laws passed by the Republican dominated General Assembly were overturned by the US Supreme Court as racially unsound.

rk9152 responded "The above is a disgusting, racist comment. It assumes that while white people a fully capable of taking care on their ID requirements, black people are to stupid to do the same thing."

 

He did not like the comment, so he changed it to voter ID instead, as if he didn't understand that the post was about president Trump appointing an attorney who handled the Republican defense of their racist legislation.


Considering the highlighted words above, how did "he" change anything????

Is anyone interested in explaining why the use of voter IDs is racist??


Naww - not going to respond to what seems to be baiting...


Is there anyone else out there who is not afraid of the question? After all, it is the basis of the topic.
