    Both sides are chock full of racism. It's racist to lynch a black man for being black, but it's racist to support Affirmative Action and a welfare system because you think that it's the only way a black person can advance.

    The far right is more apt to physical racism, while the left is more apt to "intellectual racism" by route of diminished expectation.

    I know that you never said that I was a racist. If you did I would have quoted you instead of specifically asking if you were "insinuating" it.

    I made a comment to which you replied:

    "Ahh, the good ole democrat plantation talking point. The "minorities are so dumb they are easily manipulated white liberals" mantra. One of my favorites."

    It looks as if you are indicating that my point reflects the one above. That I think or am saying that "minorities are so dumb they are easily manipulated white liberals". I was not indicating anything of the like and you responded that essentially, "nope, you understood what I meant". Don't try to weasel out of your words dude.

    Really hard to say...
    Few men are honest enough to own up to this human failing.
    And, in truth, this is NOT the domain of either the left nor the right..
    And, to say that a liberal or a conservative l is more racist than a conservative or a liberal.....this is totally wrong....

    And at the same time neither side is actually racist. They are trying to win elections and change policy to their way of thinking... it is politics.

    I wasn't. Accepted.

    I was indicating that people get used to what they have. If minorities, or anybody for that matter, is used to getting welfare checks, doesn't have an education or lacks skills to get them ahead, then they will vote for the side that will continue to take care of them. Dependent on what they get and want to continue to get. If we get into intelligence then we are getting not into intelligence based on race but by socio-economic status and how that keeps people down for various reasons.

    You are operating under the misconception that liberals support such policies because they consider blacks incapable of achieving success without them do to some innate inferiority on their part when the fact of the matter is that liberals donít assume racist obstacles are too big to individually overcomeómerely that they make it far more difficult than it should be for persons of color, and that this is a unique injustice.

    I don't like to think of either "side" as racist - just elements within each side. Not all conservatives are Mississippi rednecks who like to drive around in pick-up trucks lookin for "nee-gruhs" to beat. Not all liberals are condescending asswipes who support legislation that promotes "tokenship" and give infinite mea culpas for irresponsible behavior because of your skin color.

    Then you will remain either uninformed or misinformed.

    I haven't checked in a couple of years. maybe a three hundred year old Spanish dictionary is online now ?

    The one I used is at the Huntington Library.

    Most what I wrote about the La Raza movement also came from Spanish language newspapers published in California during the last half of the 1800's and first half of the 1900's. Those newspapers can also be found at the Huntington Library.

    Basically Redress, the National Council of La raza is a Mexican nationalist racist hate group. In America they are labeled as the radical left. In Mexico they are labeled as radical right reactionaries.
