    I have no idea of what you are referring to about Politico.com nor how it relates to this conversation.
    perception, unfortunately, can be everything, meaning it becomes reality ... For example, many people in the south in the early 1900s believed in the biological inferiority of blacks and that helped to justify the thousands of lynchings that took place in the south between the late 1800s and early 1900s. The reality was not that they were inferior (there was no scientific evidence for that), but the lynchings were real, that was the reality. As W.I, Thomas once said, "If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences."

    my reference to politico is that your claim about Dems being the true racists was something started a couple of years ago by Rove and others in response to accusations against their party of racism ... it gets old and you look silly ...

    It's going to be a rude awakening when the black community realizes that the party that coddled race hustlers and poverty pimps has been the real man keeping a brother down, all on the name of money, and votes.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    How was racism involved? Were Black people forced to participate somehow?

    Good thing that Obama, like Detroit, turned the situation around.

    Democrats are now citing illegals as being a part of voter demographics? Of course working against voter I.D. also helps that lock.

    Disregarding the facts is the first refuge of the Left.

    No, it never becomes reality to intellectually honest people.

    For example, many people in the south in the early 1900s believed in the biological inferiority of blacks and that helped to justify the thousands of lynchings that took place in the south between the late 1800s and early 1900s.

    That men can commit horrible acts is not unknown, but these acts are based on ignorance and have no basis in reality.

    my reference to politico is that your claim about Dems being the true racists was something started a couple of years ago by Rove and others in response to accusations against their party of racism ... it gets old and you look silly ...
    Just two years ago? It should have been taught in classrooms for the past 150 years!

    That awakening can't come soon enough for Black people, or the USA.
