    Not you, but many other liberals.

    One need only look at a YT video of any of those people, and they'd be slammed as racist judging by the comments.

    You are typically the exception, in that you usually don't jump on the bandwagon that other liberals do.

    There's so much wrong with this quote in the context of this thread that I don't have the patience to point it out.

    A question to those who disagree with me:

    “Black folks were in caves while we were building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
    IF a white man said this, would you think he was a racist?

    I just want to see how clear your sense of equality is.

    I'll agree with your litmus test, if you acknowledge that it should be applied fairly to white people as well, who are currently accused of being racist.
    And once again you are avoiding the issue. You claimed Sharpton was a racist. You failed to show how he fits the definition. When confronted, you tell other people what they need to do. What makes it funny is I know both BD and I do call out people on both sides for stupidly applying the racist label. By your own standards here, since you are only worried about liberals calling people racist, you are a hypocrite.

    I think he was trying to be funny.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That is bogus.

    There are also quite a few conservatives that I think are potentially racist, or at least race-bait.

    Do not call me a hypocrite when you don't know me so well.
