    In that case, its just common sense support.

    My views on affirmative action style "support" when it comes to the black community may differ from yours, but I think the government is trying to lend a crutch to black communities while leaving their leg broken rather than suggesting a cast (if you get my metaphor), all to gain their support in elections and nothing more.

    A close 2nd to the GLBT community would be the Gun Rights folks. Democrats have predominately been the group associated with gun control laws, making Gun Rights folks rightfully mistrust them.

    The pro-life and value issue voter/evangelicals are being fed crumbs from a cake they will never get to taste by those particular republicans who feel the need to earn their vote. We should all know by now that nothing is going to be done about abortion, why do something about it when it can CONTINUE to be an issue to divide voters over? Same scenario for the other two groups in this phrase.
    You make very valid points.

    Speaking directly to the issue of abortion, some folks may not believe it it on moral or religious grounds, but one way to slow its effectiveness is to offer wider use of birth control especially to those segments of the population that have a tendency to use abortion as a method of birth control. The wider the availability of contraceptive is made to the general public where same has a choice it their varied uses coupled with proper sex education, the less likely people will act irresponsibly where sex, unwanted pregnancies/young mothers are concerned. But I digress...

    Let's NOT turn this thread into another anti-abortion debate. We already have hundreds of those on this board. I'd highly reconnend you find one if you wish to continue this topic. (Sorry mods...not trying to steal your administrative thunder; just trying to keep the thread from being derailed once again by side-topics.)

    My post was more to point out the list of brainwashed "groups", not to be a debate on issues like abortion, which I avoid like the plague.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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.

So, do you agree? Moreover, if you answer "yes", do you believe that black men are more "brainwashed" than any other race? And if so, why do you think that black men think less for themselves than other races?

    My vote is "No," by the way.
    Some black men are brainwashed. Some are brainwashed into race-baiting, and use race as an excuse for whatever slight they experience in life.

    And some white men are brainwashed. Some are brainwashed into being racists, and use race for an excuse for whatever failures they experience in life. So what? The same can be said for any group, any. This does not make the comment any less acceptable.

    No idea, lol. I assumed the op? Or at least I was talking about the OP more than your comment.

    You are both equally correct.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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.

    Exactly the same point you made just using whites. Why did you think I was attack you? I was just reinforcing the point with a different example and your words.

    If you know me, you know I use qualifiers on every statement I make. You don't need to chime in, correcting me as though I haven't the capacity to include some whites et al, either; you can assume I meant your statement as well.
