    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Can we agree then that it is as unfair to label Republicans as Racist as it is to label Democrats as Racist?

    And will you give the same argument in support of Republicans as you have for Democrats when the issue of Racism is raised?

    It seems these 'racist' charges, as has those of 'bigot' etc. has gotten right out of hand.

    I agree, a party isn't racist. A person is.

    oh, really?

    no contemplation of rockefeller-goldwater, 64, the defining primary of 76?

    no chicago, 68, no mcgovern, jimmy carter or dlc?

    ah, the proper use of history...

    thanks

    no role for reconstruction, radical or otherwise?

    why was andrew johnson impeached, what would abe have said?

    tilden-hayes, 76, eerily similar to florida 2000---what was the fallout from that, again?

    what was the great commoner's view of race?

    I fully agree with this. And from what I witnessed, the majority of people who were throwing around the 'racist' card at Republicans were politicians and media pundits and/or their guests. I personally doubt a significant number of people believe everyone in the Republican party, or their supporters, are racist. And even if someone does believe that, they are either biased, trying to push an agenda, or are brainwashed.

    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    Good to see you missed my point completely, and then accuse me of being a racist. Nice.

    Especially ironic as it pops up right when we're working on getting past accusing everyone of being racist.
