    I just don't follow your point or how you read into his post.
    His post was about minorities rejecting the right. And the right's message is one of personal responsibility. If you still don't understand, then nevermind.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    The U.S., home to a large number of east-Indians, who were expelled from Africa by africans, where they lived for many generations. Call them-"African-Americans, it is an insult.

    As I said, if they don't like hyphenization, just plain American will do.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I understand your post better, but the GOP stands for a lot of stuff. Not voting GOP doesn't prove anybody fails to take responsibility in life.

    Is a white of skin color, south african...that immigrates to the United States....now considered an African American?


    Put that in your pipe and smoke it race baiters on both sides.
    S/he's black on the inside. Note the knife-edged temperament and the sidelong sneer.

    Along with the refusal to admit they're more partial to Ice Cube than Malcolm.

    Doesn't prove they're not responsible but it proves the message of personal responsibility doesn't resonate with them. That's what Romney was trying to explain during his 47 percent gaff that was taken out of context so badly. The right's message just isn't going to resonate with certain demographic groups.

    Never mind is correct. You keep talking about the message, avoiding conversation about the actions of the right .. which have absolutely nothing to do with responsibility.

    I've asked you several times to demonstrate republicans embracing the diversity of America .. and you've yet to do that .. because republicans DO NOT embrace diversity.

    I've asked what about republican attempts to disenfranchise non-white voters .. you've yet to respond.

    The message that republicans send in one of intolerance and arrogance, not responsibility.

    Don't look now, but your message of intolerance and arrogance is indeed getting through .. which is why the right is almost completely white.

    Don't look now, but nobody is buying the ruse about 'responsibility' and republicans poll lower than Obama and Obamacare. Do you think that's just happenstance?

    Hey... if you equate personal responsibility with intolerance, then that's your problem and it explains why you side with the party that gave us the food stamp president.
