    Virulent Racism in the Democratic Party



    Since the sins of a few seen to be representative of the collective (or at least the majority) and the ill informed and ignorant words of a couple of children also pass as qualifiers, it would seem both parties of the two party system are a bunch of hay seed, back woods racists.

    It was the Democrats who kept Grand Kleagle Byrd in the party for decades.

    It was Democrats who called General Colin Powell and Justice Clarence Thomas a "house n-gger" and Uncle Tom.

    It was Democrats who called Condi Rice - who grew up with and knew the little girls in Birmingham who were blown up, by Democrats - an "Aunt Jemima" and ran cartoons of her with fat lips.

    And remind me again all the crap black celebs like Stacy Dash get called when they come out and support Republicans?

    If the sins of a few pass as group think, well, here you go aka.

    Quoting Joe Biden is almost like hitting below the belt. Just not fair!

However it was, it was Steve’s fault. He had the n*gger down, he let him up. The n*gger blindsided him.“ – Roger Clinton, the President’s brother on audiotape

    Maybe she just hasn't seen it yet.

    Robert Byrd anyone? Former Klansman and West Virginia Senator who served until passing away in 2010.

    Famous for filibustering the civil rights act of 1964, and the only man to vote against both of the African American supreme court justices.

    I would ask if it's your day job to make me laugh and flatter yourself, but it's actually night right now. Good grief.

    I'll just let this paragraph from the article I posted in the other thread do the talking. In the meantime, HR and Kistler, enjoy your echo chamber. It seems comfy, if anything.

    It seems like it has become a monthly occurrence that an elected Republican either forwards some horrible racist chain email about President Obama or makes some horrible racist off-the-cuff remark. (For a few examples of this from the past year, see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

    IIRC, Dems were also the party against abolishing slavery during the Civil War.

    And again, aka completely misses the point.

    Nobody is claiming GOPers don't say stupid, racist stuff. They do.

    The point is people on both sides do it with regularity. It's been that way since time and memorial.

    If the sins of a few GOPers can cast dispersions on the group as a whole, then under the rules of logic, you must say the same about the Democrats.

    Here is what I do not think you are quite getting:

    I don't deny that their is racism in some parts of the Republican party. When they were in power, they abused the rights of many, not just those of the "people of color".

    What I find humorous, is your naive belief that the current party in power, the Democrats, are all full of goodness and light and spend their every waking minute of every day freeing the oppressed.

    I got 500,000 (mostly minority by the way) prisoners incarcerated on minor drug offenses (mostly weed), and several hundred "detainees" in Guantanamo (who we are not sure exactly for what they are detained because they never get their day in court) and several hundred Middle Eastern children that have been freed from their right to breath air by indiscriminate droning that would beg to differ with your opinion of "The One" and his party of goodness and light.

    Power, no matter in whose hands we find it, is always abused. Been that way for, oh, I don't know, forever, give or take a couple of thousand years.

    But hey....keep on keeping on if you makes you feel better....and by all means, keep those donations coming.

    Actually since this thread was about Democrats it would be you using straw men to pull it on a tangent.
