    Anyone who does not accept the universal right of adult citizens to vote should be the first to give up that right.

    So these right-wing extremists who want to deprive poor people the right to vote, particularly poor people of color, should be first in line to give it up themselves.

    Calling most people of color poor is racist. You must be a democrat.

    That is a blatantly false statement and a red herring. Why should I take you seriously when you can't even properly interpret a written sentence?

    You must be a democrat.
    And "Democrat" is a proper noun.

    Besides, you imply that you know quite a bit about racism and poverty. Care to elaborate? I'm always open to new ideas, so long as they pass the sanity test.

    He didn't say that. Learn to read before you start spouting off crap.

    Okay, let me help you out here, because you are choosing not to address your lie.

    I said: "So these right-wing extremists who want to deprive poor people the right to vote, particularly poor people of color, should be first in line to give it up themselves."

    To which you replied: "Calling most people of color poor is racist."

    This would have been an unacceptable response in the fifth grade. But for an adult (I presume you are an adult) to say it is an act of blatant ignorance. Again, how can I possibly accept anything you say when you can't even demonstrate basic reading comprehension skills?

    For your information, poverty disproportionately affects people of color. You do know that, right? Secondly, contrary to how some white people feel, discussing race or racial groups is not in and of itself racist. Do you even know what racism means, or am I gonna have to define that for you as well?

    Are poor people mostly of color?

    No one on 8 pages of posts brought up race. No one. Until you.
