    Your problem is that no one is promoting that line.

    You can say that, but it has been put forward, in this thread, that some Republicans believe that Democrats are taking white people's money and giving it to black people. Someone has been doing some brainwashing.

    If someone puts it forward that Dems want to send everyone making above minimum wage to a reeducation camp, does that make it true or credible?

    Just because someone has been made to believe something, doesn't make it true. Of course it's not true, but some have been brainwashed to believe that it is.

    Wait, now...let me see if I understand what you are saying...

    1. "...it has been put forward, in this thread, that some Republicans believe that Democrats are taking white people's money and giving it to black people..." This being said without any kind of factual support. Just you saying it.

    2. The above quote is your reasoning for previously saying this: "Yeah, but the Republicans use it to get votes. It's a diversion from the fact that rich people are taking all the resources. A very old trick, keep the masses divided and fighting among themselves." And this: "The thing is this, Republicans can keep trying to make whites who are struggling believe that their problems are due to Democrats taking their money and giving it black people." And, of course, this: "Someone has been doing some brainwashing."

    3. So...somehow...from number one, an unsupported contention of your's, you come up with number two.

    Now, I'm no college educated person...I'm not really very smart, you see...but for the life of me, I cannot see how number one and number two contain any logical progression. At all.

    Transfers only happen when money is taken from one taxpayer and given to another.

    You bellyaching about one group EARNING more than another group doesn't mean that there is a wealth transfer going on.

    I don't think welfare or whatever counts as income?

    No, it is a fact that it was put forward in this thread.

    No it's a fact. Republican strategists have devised code words like "welfare queen" to target anger at blacks, to make it seem like blacks, "welfare queens", are getting white people's money. It's been well documented and is a fact.

    Well I'm as dumb as a bag of hammers, but I do read. And what I have said that Republican strategists have deliberately done is true and has been well documented.

    I may be stupid, but I know this, Democrats are not taking white people's money and giving it to black people.

    I'm not belly aching, What I'm saying is that Democrats are not taking white people's money and giving it to black people.

    Do you really think black people are the only people on welfare? Not only that, but I'm black and I know no one is giving me white people's money. It's garbage.
