    I think it has more to do with him trying anything, desperately to get you to see logic for the first time in your life.

    The problem of race is yours. You are just trying to bring up race because you are obsessed by it as many of the PC crowd are.
    And is even 26% of Republican politicians from various minority groups? How many black republican Senators are there? How many black Congressmen? How many black American's were at the last Republican National Convention where the Republican's choose a white man as their presidential candidate?

    The race problem is everyone's problem. And the worst thing you can do, is like the Republican's, ignore the fact that there is a problem between races or religions in a society.

    I have travelled the world and seen many minorities being abused, marginalised and worse in many countries. In Saudi Arabia, people from most Asian countries and areas of the Arab world are treated as slaves. In Eastern Europe the Romany are hunted and marginalised. Even in the EU, problems due to race are not exactly unheard off and we are no better if not worse than the US on race issues.. I admit that (other than we have far fewer people of colour). Is the US one of the worst offenders? Hell no not even close, but they do have a problem like everyone else and ignoring it wont make it go away. Many European countries ignore the problem too btw, including the UK, but that does not mean that race based tensions are not around and are not a problem.

    And no more evident is the problem than in the present Republican party. I know the history of this once proud party, but the facts are facts. A very small amount of elected official's and even members come from minorities in the Republican party. No party can claim to understand "minority issues" if that party does not have some basic representation in those groups. Do you think that Le Pen is the best person to understand the troubles of the Northern African descendant French?

    You and others can keep claiming that the "magic negro" song was a joke and other comments were jokes, but it is the context and who "said the joke" and especially when it was said, is often is the deal breaker. Plus the actions of the Republican party to deal with radical fringe racist elements has not exactly been "stellar". They allowed David Duke to get elected on a Republican ticket. They allowed a KKK member to get elected under the Republican ticket and so on. On top of that, there has been a clear policy by the Republican party through out the Bush years and even before to target minority areas in elections and prevent turn out. There was letters telling people that Republicans should vote on election day and Democrats the next day. There was giving relatively fewer election machine's to democratic often black or minority areas. And dont tell me that this does not matter in an over all picture of the Republican party.. It does.

    I have no doubt that the basic Republican is a good person and not a racist, but as along as they allow radical fringe freaks to infest the party and use the party to promote racist and anti minority views, then the party will be seen as to harbour such people.

    How many black politicians in Spain?

    They could be. Do you have any evidence they are not?

    If these people don't want to join the Republican party then that is not its fault. It has its agenda and part of that is a respect for the Anglo-American and Judeo-Christian culture of the US, just as part of it is respect for small business and free entreprise that doesn't get them much support from big labour unions. I think it would a lot worse if they compromised on this for PC reasons like just including more minorities as I'd hate to the Tories abandon their ancient principles of Church and King even more for such reasons.

    Look at the terrible behaviour of Orius in this thread. It seems to me that those who keep trying to insert race into many discussions do minoirites no favours. Definitely the New Labour, PC thug approach has not helped at all.

    Huffpo Red in the Face Over Fox News Hoax

    This is, without a doubt, the best correction of the week. Okay, the month. Aw, hell, I'll say it: Best. Correction. Ever. From the Huffington Post:

    huffpo gibson scrotum.jpg

    Huffpo had posted what appeared to be a video of Fox News's John Gibson jokingly referring to Attorney General Eric Holder as a monkey with a "bright blue scrotum." That last bit is a reference to an unrelated news story about a Debrazza monkey that escaped from a zoo in Seattle.

    Spanish society is a very very "white" society I dont deny that one bit and that has the crappy effect that there is quite a bit of racial complications as we all know.

    I did not refer to you nor to the term "nigger", so exactly where your silly ranting comes from I don't know. How about you actually try and compose a reasoned argument for once instead of insulting and defaming people and ranting about PC ****.
    Wow... that joke just went right over your head...

    You mentioned PC, so I acted like a PC person who was offended, and then...

    Oh nevermind, once you have to explain it, it's not funny anymore.

    Yes, we know you socialists hate history. It's a terrible thing your folks had been so adamant, so consistent in support of slavery.

    That's why you folks try to rewrite history.

    It wasn't Republican governors keeping schools segregated in violation of the law... it was 100% Democrats.

    Much of it is not that old.
    Johnson, Kennedy, Byrd, Biden.

    With this mentality, we will discover that it was the Republicans responsible for the failure of Obama's Porkulus. In fact, when history is written, it will be noted that Republicans will have forced Obama's hand in pushing Porkulus.
