    It's not "correctly so". The GOP opposes illegal immigration, not Hispanics. Are you going to try to claim that all those breaking our laws by entering our country illegally are upstanding, law abiding future citizens?

    No, the Supreme Court did not initiate it. JFK did and then it was later enhanced by LBJ.

    There is also no such thing as 'reverse discrimination'. There is only discrimination.

    Many, and even the formerly staunchly-Republican Cuban-Americans in the EC-vote heavy and vital state of FL, are seeing it differently. So Bush 43 got 40% of the Hispanic Vote; McCain got 31%; Romney got 27%, and even if the trend does not get worse, TX will go Blue State within a decade.

    In federal hiring practices only. It began in earnest, at the University Level, following a SCOTUS decision, and had a huge economically beneficial effect for million of African-Americans, who sadly did not stay in and thus raise up Black Communities, but fled to white suburbia, creating a rift in the Black Community, between so called Huxtable Blacks and Ghetto Blacks. So better, but not great ...

    ... and then added to profoundly with our quixotic, stupid, and at times very racist War on Drugs (Reagan) which has decimated Black Communities, due largely to police targeting far more heavily Black neighborhoods, despite use of drugs equal within White neighborhoods. Then add to the higher arrest rates, a higher conviction rate (racism) for the same crimes when defendants are black, and it's easy to see how stupidity and racism, and not Dem policies, is what's been destroying Black communities.

    Yes, of course. It was the racist war on drugs that did all the damage and drug use was unknown before Ronald Reagan became President.

    It seems that you only have to read a sentence or two these days, or hear them say a few words, and you can then easily identify that person as a Democrat.

    Are those policies good for the country or only for the Democratic party? If the path to political victory is supporting illegal immigration and no scruples need be involved, then it makes good political sense for Democrats to support breaking the law. This also seems to be the consensus among those who support the Party.

    No, it was as I stated: at times very racist, such as separate penalties for powder (white preferred on average) and rock (black preferred on average) cocaine, which was only corrected under Obama, and had for years been decried as patently racist in it's impact.

    Those are not policies, but voter demographics, which indeed have given the Dems a lock on the White House.

    Last refuge of the Right, when faced with facts. Quote a Rupe Rag OP-ED piece (of ....). How lame can you get?
