    That doesn't prove anything.

    I asked for actual evidence of racist policies, that are being pushed by the GOP.

    Let me ask you this.. are you not against such laws as I and others have pointed out? Are you for slavery and segregation? Why is it that you constantly attack people for pointing out bad things that right wingers have done in America, instead of say... hey you know what... you are right, this guy/thing/idea is idiotic and should be changed. Instead you and your fellow bedfellows continue to defend such things till you turn blue in the face.... why is that?
    Your criticisms are erroneous and based on hatred more than fact.

    All this left vs right partisan stuff is just a pissing match based upon defending one's ideological turf. Maybe if people would stop using a political lean as their identity and start understanding political terms as concepts, instead, they might see that there are extremes at both left and right that are intolerant, rigid, dogmatic and highly prejudiced.

    The right has its share of racists, jingiosts, Christian Reich types, survivalists and other nut jobs. The left has its share of antisemites, anti-Christian bigots, America haters, anarchists, and other nut jobs. What people are failing to recognize when they indulge in these pissing matches is that considering yourself as part of the left or part of the right doesn't mean you are one of them and that it should not preclude you from criticizing these extremes.

    A GOP Senate candidate, who won his primary quite handily, pushing to overturn the Voting Rights Act of 1965 sounds like a pretty damned racist GOP policy move to me.

    Generics...nice.

    We could generalize everything down to the point of total inaction.

    I mean whats the point of this site if we cant isolate the diferences between right and wrong and call out tactics from opposing view points ?

    Truth is unfounded racist accusations have been leveled at the GOP by a party that is historically racist and has implemented policies that have contributed to the destruction of the black family.

    BS is BS and and its got to to be isolated and addressed if there is any hope for this country.

    One dude makes all Republicans racists?

    Did he want to overturn the entire legislation, or just Section 5, which legalizes racial gerrymandering?

    I still don't see any evidence that the GOP is inherently racist. All I see is Left wing propaganda.

    The problem is that you are fanatically biased and America hating, which you don't deny. So anything you post has questionable credibility. Add that to the credibility of what your sidekick posts, we have a large negative credibility factor. You were able to find a single example to prove some negative point you were trying to make, while ignoring the majority of the states that parted with slavery long ago.

    We're all still waiting for your honest answers in the gun control forums, maybe you should be concentrating there.
