The bolded part above, from your comment, is neither what I said nor what I meant. I don't deny racism exists although in my life, here in Canada, I've very rarely seen it in practice - perhaps that's unique to Toronto or unique to my experience - or perhaps if you don't go looking for racism it generally won't find you.
What I did say, fairly clearly, is that as long as Democrats and the left use racism as a tool in politics and public discourse, racism will always exist. Do you deny that Democrats and the left use racism as a weapon? Do you deny that whenever someone on the right legitimately talks about issues related to black youth and violence they are immediately painted as racists by Democrats and the left?
I can't nor would I discount your own personal life experiences - that would be wrong. But that doesn't discount the point I was trying to make.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Here is the truth: liberals cant fathom the possibility that their policies are failures and their candidates are unpopular because of those failures. It is much easier for the liberal mind to accept that the people are bad than it is for them to accept that it is their ideas that are bad.
This year marked 50 years and it is still a sea of red in the South.
How the Civil Rights Bill Almost Died
As Paul Harvey would have said....."And now you know the rest of the story".
What Ms. Mary's comments show is someone who is very desperate. She's going down.
Racism in the USA will not disappear anytime soon.
It's too deep-rooted.
She then answered:Why [does President] Obama has such low approval ratings in Louisiana?
And...1. The president's energy policies are deeply disliked by residents of the oil and gas-rich state.
Now, should she have limited her remarks strictly to her state? Yes! But that doesn't mean that her 2nd answer isn't true. It just means she shouldn't have injected race into the equation when asked specifically why the President's approval ratings and/or popularity wasn't high in her state. In short, she shouldn't have spoke for the entire south whether her accusation is true or not.2. (I'll be very, very honest with you.) The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader."

Leftists are trying to peddle old, discredited ideas, while condescending to blacks as lesser people who can't compete on their own. They pimp for blacks' votes to keep themselves in power by promising to give them money earned by other people. They could not care less if this degrades and divides this country--as their constant derision of all things American shows, most of them don't much like it anyway.
