    Nah....we just believe in the importance of diversity....the GOP/right-wing are showing that their only interest is in the viewpoint of the old white male.

    This debate is showing that there is no room for differing viewpoints in the GOP.

    Why then are you often intent on enforcing uniformity and universalism? Why then does this support for diversity often seem to boil down to privileges and state intervention benefiting "oppressed" minorities at the cost of the rest of society?


    the GOP/right-wing are showing that their only interest is in the viewpoint of the old white male.
    How so?

    This debate is showing that there is no room for differing viewpoints in the GOP.
    How so?

    It is neither ironic nor amusing.

    You forget, it is the lunatic left that perpetuates the myth of race. The lunatic left drags race kicking and screaming into every public space they can, including Dear Leader's teleprompter.

    After all, who raised the specter of ethnicity in this instance: Sotomayor herself. And when called on it, the lunatic left's cowardly knee jerk response was "oh, we don't want to talk about it any more."

    It is neither ironic nor amusing, but pathetically perverse that the lunatic left refuses to let racism die the ignoble death it deserves.

    Yes because everyone knows that the country as a whole has been run into the ground for the last 200 years. Why dont you show me a country that has come as far and as fast as we have before you start complaing about the way we have been run. I guess you could look at south america and find much better ways to run the country or wait maybe you cant.

    Golly Gee Whiz the leftists think it's okay to make racist remarks if your talking about white people and claim them taken out of context when there is no context that makes it okay. And belonging to La Raza (The Race) which goes hand in hand with Aztlan, and MEChA is far from a reason to praise anyone.
    The radical left is threatening people for telling the truth. There has to be a better Hispanic choice out there.
    People who cry that we who oppose a racist are racist are a joke. Look at what the so-called tolerant all encompassing open arms party have done to minorities nominated to high offices by in the past.

    You do realise that on the vast majority of issues Hillary and Obama were on the same page right.

    It has nothing to do with race. It has more to do with equal representation of the way our society has evolved and will continue to evolve.

    Stuck in the past is not a good place to be.
    So what you are telling me is that crimanals and those to lazy to work should have the same representation as those that work hard and pay taxes. If you contribute nothing to society you should have no voice in society.

    ...and yet...through this debate, the GOP/right-wing are showing just the opposite of what you claim.

    There is no room for anyone who does not share the viewpoint of the old white male in Limbaugh's GOP.
