    You do realize that your talking points are nothing more than the Left's propaganda, don't you?

    Maybe you don't.

    How would you explain it?

    What are minority issues?

Did you hear what Steve King, one of the GOP's most prominent members said, about Mexican immigrants? if not, check out this gem ...

    The controversial comments focused specifically on so-called DREAMers, advocates for a path to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants, especially those with strong school records, who were brought to the United States by their parents. King acknowledged that there are undocumented immigrants for whom he has sympathy, with strong connections to the community and exemplary school performance.

    "But they aren't all valedictorians, they weren't all brought by their parents," King said.

    "For everyone who's a valedictorian there's another 100 out there that, they weigh 130 pounds and they've got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. Those people would be legalized with the same act."
    In your opinion should temporary politicians be allowed to change the demographics of the country for their benefit and against the will of the people?

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 ...
    Actually, Democrat racism is entrenched in history. There is no denying it. Welfare is an extension of that exploitation of the poor and disenfranchised.

    How would you explain Clinton, Gore, and Kerry getting close to or over 90% of the black vote? Does that help? When you have Rand Paul going around saying that a restaurant owner should be able to deny someone sevice just because he's black, that doesn't help you guys. Or Steve King's recent comments on Mexican immigrants. Or cuts in programs for the poor (and blacks are disproportionately poor). Or questioning whether Obama was born here or is a real American? Mister, did you really have to ask?

    If you're talking about immigration, you have absolutely no idea how immigration works ... Do you think businesses in this country like having access to cheap immigrant labor? Clue, when they can, they outsource labor ...

    Good for you ... now go with that and convince blacks et al. that the GOP is the party they should be supporting ...
