    Gee, Robert Byrd denounced his comments and the fact that he was a member of KKK, he apologized, and now he is dead. Yet Republicans are holding on to his past because he just happens to be the only Democrat they can quote saying racist remarks!

    How about Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms and some of the others that left the Democratic Party to join the Party that was more accommodating to their hateful/racist attitudes? They never apologized. Did you forget them?

    How about David Duke? Isn't he still a Republican? Or better still, how about Rand Paul - didn't he just recently suggested that he wouldn't have voted on the Civil Rights Act?

    I did the same. I asked if people had the dream back, since Al Sharpton is "Reclaiming the Dream" today.

    Honestly, this is just petty
    .
    I hope Sharpton is having a great march. I know Beck's was a success. His was a lot about unity, faith, hope,and charity which seems to be lacking these days
    .
    As far as honor, I don't think anyone could disagree that many of us need it restored. So many are lacking integrity.
    Will Beck's rally change anyone? Who know's, but at least he's trying, along with all the other people of faith who spoke today.

    The fact that non-believers have made several baseless attempts to re-write history over 200 years after the fact, all to try and make it better conform to their beliefs and political agendas, should fail the smell test with anyone who applies even a small amount of common sense.
    thats just it, you say they are baseless. isnt that your opinion on their opinions? i dont see what is so wrong with questioning things.

    What was discriminating?

    How about that Hispanics could now be stopped just for being brown, because that is what illegals look like? Why weren't right-wingers able to pick up on the discriminatory nature of this law? Because they weren't the ones that were being singled out?

    If it wasn't discriminating, why did they go and change it?

    When I wrote last on Arizona's new immigration law, critics of the measure were arguing that requiring proof of citizenship based on a policeman’s “reasonable suspicion” -- which could be based partially but not “solely” on ethnicity -- triggered during “any lawful contact” was an invitation to abuse. Conservative defenders found these criticisms of a “sensibly written and rigorously focused” law not only mistaken, but “over the top,” “intemperate,” “hysterical,” “preening” and “sanctimonious.”

    Until the Arizona legislature hastily revisited the law on precisely these points. “Any lawful contact” has now been changed to a “lawful stop, detention or arrest.” The word “solely” has been removed, broadening the presumption against ethnic profiling.
