    Ah.

    Well, Pete EU I'll give you the quick answer:

    America was built on racism, and whether or not one thinks it was most prevalent in the Republican or Democratic party is silly at best. You might do better to look at region.

    Strom Thurmond is a great example. He said this in 1948;

    He started a Dixiecrat who ran a racist platform and was quite unbeatable in the Southern states. However, he died a Republican.
    Does that make Party as important as geographical location (not a chance in hell)?
    It was hip to run in the south with racist view points. It is now hip to run in the south with a Jesus bobble-head on your shoulder. It is now hip in Israel to run with a hawkish view on Iran. It was hip to run in the Republic of Ireland on a platform against British influence.

    Tell me, how owning a slave is not being racist?
    Tell me, why there was a gap in-between the Emancipation and the plausibility of a Black President?

    I'm sorry, but the idea that certain people (because they look different than us) should tend my fields without compensation, and that it was their duty on Earth to tend my fields, and that it was my responsibility to domesticate these uncivilized people, and that I can take whatever sexual intimacies that I wish..... how is that not racism?

    I don't judge the past through today's values, I look at the past for what it was. Africans, "savages" were considered inferior, and slave labor had been going on for thousands of years. It wasn't racist... there were white slaves too ya know. Mostly indentured-servants, but that's not the point. The era
    was different, different values.

    Tell me how Affirmative Action isn't racist.. and that's government sponsored.

    Because the right candidate hadn't come along? Really, Before Obama how many blacks had actually run for office?

    By our standards it is, by theirs.. it wasn't so much racism as how the world was.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah different, even though there were abolitionists throughout the world, and in America? Slavery did not become unethical as soon as the emancipation broke-out

    I think it is horrible legislation with a stupid intent, but I don't think it is racist.
    Because the right candidate hadn't come along? Really, Before Obama how many blacks had actually run for office?
    "right" candidate? What does that mean? That blacks are politically inferior? That it "just wasn't the right time"?

    By our standards it is, by theirs.. it wasn't so much racism as how the world was.
    Are you ready to apply that to Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia?
    You either apply the idea of relativity to everything, or nothing at all
