    I said when you assume that something is racist that isn't racist e.g. "handouts" that means you were the one that thought "handouts" was racist, MAKING YOU THE RACIST.

    Help me out folks, am I not explaining this properly or she playing stupid?
    I've had her on ignore for a long time but from what I can remember, she isn't playing.

    Your last post. Maybe if you reread your words again you'll see why it basically sounds that way.

    Caps lock doesn't help your point.

    How is assuming someone is being discriminatory, and incidentally turning out to be wrong, discriminatory? All it means is you were wrong. What you're saying actually stuns me in how little sense it makes.

    Actually, no. I think all parties contain bad people. But a particular one in recent years has seemed especially behind the social, racial, and cultural times.

    You'll get no argument from me about the GOP and their stances on social issues, particularly gay rights.

    I reread it, it's the exact same thing I've said the whole time and it has nothign to do with calling someone racist is racist, literally nothing.

    So you're not playing?

    Let me see if I can make my point this way. What about saying "handouts" is racist?

    You and NCRaven were part a conversation on a different thread like a week ago where I went to great lengths to explain that even though I am liberal and Democrat, I don't think those positions are always right.

    Not playing what? Stupid? So you're accusing me of actually being stupid? My, oh my. HR, my feelings are hurt: You might want to warn dear NCRaven.

    The word "handouts" itself is not racist. It just so happens that certain politicians use this word to refer to the poor and to people of color. I'm going to guess that you are a straight, white male who lives in relative comfort, correct? Do yourself a favor and think outside your own bubble for a moment.

    If you just don't get it, I can't make you.

    I still find this funny.

    Why does liberal have to be synonymous with Democrat?

    I still don't understand how "handouts" "welfare" or anything similar can be racist when more white people receive them then all minorities combined. Even more funny to me was that the 53% comment was somehow racist, when whites make up roughly 70% of the population.

    IT is racist if YOU CHOOSE to see it that way. It can't possibly be in any literal or rational way. IT makes literally ZERO sense to assume it does.

    Exactly. BUt don't expect AKA to be able to see that point.
