    but it was worth it...if that's what was needed to get rid of all those racists.

    clearly, some Republicans are racist. That's why they had a strategy to lure dissaffected Southern Democrats to their party after the Civil Rights and Votings Rights Acts.
    Clearly some Democrats are racists, too.

    Ever hear of Robert Byrd?

    If 80% of the population is white, and if racism is more or less equal throughout the various races as we classify them, then it stands to reason that 80% of the incidents of racism is from whites. It also stands to reason that some people, apparently including yourself, would interpret that over-abundance of incidents as what we 'only' hear or what 'only' exists.
    IOW, all whites are racist?

    did I ever say there are no racist Democrats?

    no, I never have.

    did I ever say that ALL Republicans are or were racists?

    no, I never have.

    have I ever heard of Robert Byrd?

    I went to West Virginia University, so what do you think?

    takes a sick mind to use the word "nigger", sarcastically.

    No, not at all, he's claiming that since there are elements of racism in all ethnicities the number of "racist actions" from any particular subset would be somewhat proportional to the size of the group relative to the total population.

    But, cracker is fine. IOW, some racism is bad, but other racism is acceptable.

    "Cracker", just doesn't have the same effect as calling a black person "nigger".

    sorry, but its the truth. And you know it is.
