    Re: Democratic lawmaker hits justice as ‘Uncle Thomas’

    The elected official used a racist term, and then tried to plead ignorance. Sorry, but that won't work. If he's that ignorant he doesn't belong in office for one thing, and the coincidence in using the term accidentally is just too high for another. So what did he mean by 'uncle' then?

    People of all colors are allowed to hold varying political beliefs with the sole exception of Black Americans. If they dare stray from the Liberal plantation they will be vilified by every other member, and in particular by people of the same race. It is a tragedy resulting from political and racist machinations, and Black people should begin to realize it.

    Whether an elected official belongs in office is a question for voters to answer.

    What, "other way", would that be?

    Was that obvious to you, or did it take a while?

    No. Your attitude is the problem.

    You don't like him, as obvious by your own posts, because he does not go out of the way to rule in favor of things that benefit a particular skin-color that he happens to share.


    Otherwise, it would seem you are back peddling your own statements.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
