    Most of them didn't.

    And southern Democrats are, indeed, Democrats. Liberal and everything. Like my idiot governor, who knew she'd never be re-elected so decided not to run.

All you did was remind people why the museum also includes racist artifacts from the present and how the Republicans went from being the liberal anti-slavery party to being the party that hurls racist insults like "Kenyan" at the president and distorts the truth. The Republicans disgust me just as much as the bigots who screamed insults at African Americans as they tried to enter "white only" schools.
    Why do we only hear about white on black racism, as if that's the only kind of racism that exists?

    What about all the other racism that exists?

    My wife is white. He family treats me like gold--admittedly after some gittin'-used-to. My family? I have relatives that won't speak to me, because I married a white girl.

    When people get all torqued up over white on black racism, I just can't help but wonder what they're trying to prove, or who they're trying to prove it to.

    Why would the racists run to the least racist of the two parties? I think the notion that it was for racist reasons is the real lie.

    More like an aversion for Uncle Stupid. Just sayin'!

    I mean, comparing the situation of blacks in America to the Holocaust? It's grow up time.

    Perhaps my feelings have to do with the fact that I've been able to live in the greatest country in the history of the world. Had not it been for the sacrifices--granted they were involuntary--I might not have had that privilege. I believe that my ancestors would be damn proud of what we've become.

    You gonna go down the, "you ain't really black", road again? Really?

    No way I can be black, because I don't think like you, huh? Time to grow up, son!

    Again? No. We've never gone down any road. It's an accepted fact that you're nothing more than a Stormfront troll. Most people on the forum just don't really have the time to make you aware of it.

    Just curious, why the hell does it matter what political label the bigots of yesteryear called themselves? It is the policies that matter, not the party or label. Strikes me as a red herring argument frankly.
