    So wait.

    You said, "Maybe if Harry Reid put it on a CD or a mass email the GOP would be more understanding."

    And to justify that, you used a link... of a GOP official condemning a racist CD?

    Epic. Fail.

    I don't think you realize how racist you're being here. Black folk ought not to step out of line, huh?
    I figured some right wing sheep would come in here and try to claim that my post was racist when it is simply the cold hard truth. That is why I said it was my thoughts. If you know anything about politics you know which party supports minorities and it is not the Republican Party.

    Unfortunately when I reposted my line to whoever it was, the joke I was making then became out of context.

    A high-ranking Democrat said something he shouldn't have. That business of white people commenting on a black person who speaks well implies that most blacks don't speak the way we whites think is proper -- that's racist. A big embarrassment for Reid.

    The comment will get kicked around quite a bit for a while on partisan blogs and Fox. Unlike the three incidents that I mentioned that didn't get as much playtime in conservative circles as they did on, say... MSNBC...

    You are trying to tell us that the party of the KKK has supported minorities more than the Republican party?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I repeat: which Republican policies are designed to hold black people down?

    That makes sense. Yes, partisans will ignore stupid comments by people in their party and go crazy over stupid comments by people in the other party. That is true on both sides. But that doesn't change the fact that the GOP as whole isn't exactly supportive of racist anti-Obama comments, as your own link showed. Plus, it's a bigger deal when a politician says something dumb than when some nobody somewhere says something dumb.

    You know... until you mentioned it, partisanship was not part of this thread. Everyone was pretty universal in saying that what Reid said was idiotic.

    And it was.
