    This is the problem....

    Democrats = Believe everything is racist

    Republicans = Believes that racism does not exist

    As long as the two sides don't meet in the middle and talk to each other and agree that there is a problem, then racism will always exist.
    Good afternoon rcart,

    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.

    And a woman who has managed to get elected and re-elected a couple of times by those sexist southerners.

    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.

They carried Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and South Carolina. But after the Civil Rights bill was signed, Those states went from blue states to deep red.

    Hmmm, now where are they today
    Sir you are gravely mistaken and in need of a good history lesson. If it wasn't for the Republican Party, Johnson would not have had the votes to pass the Civil Rights Bill even though Democrats had the majority in the both houses of Congress. Below is a picture of Johnson signing the Civil Rights Bill into law. The man on the left is Everett Dirksen, Senator from Illinois Republican. Previously he had served in the House where he first started on trying to pass Civil Rights legislation. The final version that Johnson signed was much of Everett Dirksen's words. Johnson gave Dirksen the first pen used in signing the bill and shortly after the Republican Ohio Representative Mccullough for his key role on the House Judiciary. That was no accident for if it were not for these men the bill may not have been passed due to the objection of so many Southern Democrats. In fact Johnson after signing the bill has been quoted to say in passing the bill he may have given the South to the Republicans for a very long time. And he was correct as the people who opposed the civil rights bill were voted out of office.

    This year marked 50 years and it is still a sea of red in the South.

    Racism in the USA will not disappear anytime soon.

    It's too deep-rooted.

    Anyone in the GOP who doesn't recognize the fact that the GOP has close to zero support from Blacks in the USA Is out of touch with reality

    Does anyone have any idea why so few Blacks support the GOP/




    "Better days are coming." ~ But not for today's out of touch, running out of time, GOP
    Sen. Landrieus was asked a specific question, towhich:

    Why [does President] Obama has such low approval ratings in Louisiana?
    She then answered:

    1. The president's energy policies are deeply disliked by residents of the oil and gas-rich state.
    And...

    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."
    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.

    Show me a country where racism doesn't exist. As for racism in the US, it exists, will likely always exist in the minds and actions of some, but this is not 1954, it is 2014. Liberals try to pretend that there is no significant difference between those two years. But they know there is. They just cant let blacks know there is. The only way liberals can keep blacks on the liberal plantation is to keep them believing that it is racism that holds them back and only liberals can save them. The truth is quite the opposite, however. Liberals keep them down, and only liberty can save them. The day blacks come to realize that is the last day democrats run anything in this country.

    'What goes around, comes around." No one can stop time, and/or change.
    That's a good reason for collectivists to stop pretending we're living in the Red Thirties, and that, as many intellectuals thought then, the U.S. should be more like the USSR. They are living in the wrong country, so they want to remake it by diktat to suit their tastes. Because the Constitution is a constant obstacle to their dreams of creating a centrally-controlled social utopia, they, like this sorry excuse for a President, disdain it in favor of lawless rule.

    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.
