    Does the democratic party of today use race as a political pawn?
    If you are honest, youd have to say yes.

    GOP "racism" tends to be more of a superficial reaction compared to liberal racism

    GOP "racism" tends to be based on the following

    reaction to the large amount of crime committed by blacks
    reaction to the large numbers of blacks seen as major tax consumers
    reaction to the almost monolithic Dem support by blacks

    in other words-disgust at actions

    while Liberal racism tends to be based on a belief that blacks can be manipulated into being wards of the Democratic elite because they are unable to function on their own

    I'd say both parties use whatever they can get as political pawns, including race.

    The Republican Party was based on northern white Protestants, businessmen, small business owners, professionals, factory workers, farmers, and African-Americans.
    Much of those ideas are true today.

    Now just add to the fact that it was the south that was pro-slavery(racist) and look at current voting patterns and it really is quite simple to figure out it was conservatives of old that were pro slavery.
    It was the Democrats, certainly, but no one who holds traditional conservative views can favor slavery.

    Regardless, you're making the argument that progressives were for slavery??
    I doubt the word 'progressive' was in use at the time bt we do know that the 'progressives' of today want more control for the state and less for the individual.
    You probably think it was the war of northern aggression. LOL

    Another 'they all do it' rationalization. You don't believe some use race more than others?

    I believe they do it in different ways. "More" is virtually impossible to quantify.

    How bout we take out republican and democrat because the terms are clearly confusing you.
    Think north and south... Now i'm not going to say the North was almighty and moral, but they weren't as adamant for slavery. The south was for Slavery. They JUSTIFIED slavery based on the bible contrary to what someone was saying earlier. Now to this day, the south remains more racist than any other region in our country..
    Now in today's date, can you tell me what party the south generally supports? Republicans. That doesn't make Republicans the party of racists, but there is a 100% certainty to anyone not blinded by pure partisanship that the republican party has more "racists"
    Men do what they have to when they want to, Great men do what they have to, even when they don't want to.

    So affirmative action got this guy two golden degrees-Yale BA and Yale JD and he ended up being a failure professionally.
    100% certainty that AA in this case is garbage. The best and the most qualified should always get the position, scholarship, admission. The only "AA" I think should existed is $$$ for qualified students who don't have the means.

    I hate when people try to place racism on a particular party, or even on a party.

    We as a whole are against racism. We might have different standards on what qualifies as racism (and it really matters on where you live and social norms), but in general if you hate black people or any other race, you aren't representing your political affiliation at that point, you are showing your individual nature.
