    You see it as an appeal to hostilities and some see it as an appeal to priorities. I think it's very likely that when you choose define label any groups concerns as "hostile" you're probably projecting.
    No I don't. For instance, I think it would be evil for Barack Obama to tell black people that if you vote for me, I will make sure that white people will be paid back for the evils that were inflicted against blacks due to slavery. That's evil. I fail to see how that is projection.

    Oh sure, I'll agree with that, however I was addresing the OP queston proper. And I'm not so sure I like the class warfare label either. I see that like "wealth redistribution" the way the right uses it to adavnce the socialism fallacy. The country has shifted our value through production and a true sharing of the wealth, to market betting and manipulation to shift eanring power to those who can afford to bet and thus win a lot of money based upon their forcasts.

    They're "building hotels" all over the world.... follow me? And since the American worker has be relegated to working for hotels, the game is against us. But as for whites proper, I stand by my earlier commentary.

    The idea that there's this "war" on straight, white, Christians is laughable. Minorities have been treated horribly throughout history and now that they are finally starting to get some modicum of equality, the GOP is getting pissy about it. It's ridiculous.

    Slavery wasn't worth reparations, but apparently having to listen to someone speak a language you don't understand may be.

    The only war on whites i see is in the Southern states, by their own WHITE REPUBLICAN, politicians, who keep them poor by right to work slave wages, deny them access to healthcare, and basically phuck them over any which way they can..
    The thread was based on an article that semi mocked the question from a conservative host. You should be a little more thorough before you make assumptions.

    Actually the difference between the conservative elite and the liberal elite is that liberals tend to believe that to maintain social harmony, the government needs to provide a stronger social safety net than conservatives would like.
    I'd think it foregone that neither side envisions precipitating civil unrest, to the extent that the state is jeopardised. As to welfare provision, it hardly stands as any blue touch paper for a powder keg of racial animosity, the precursors of which both predate and exceed it. Considerations of order are a given.

    Short of social collapse, what both sides have in common is vested interest. That being, contextually, opportunistic. While neither ideology is driven specifically by any racial component, every little helps in the war for subscription.

    Multiculturalism? what is that? Show and tell?

    Speaking recently to a Justice Studies graduate who was extolling the virtues of the above two mentioned movements and pretending to keep the context of those terms in the harmless, passive, playful, exercises of sharing that they're presented to be the conversation meandering about led to music where I asked him about George Strait? George who? Steely Dan? Steely Duh? AC/DC, Garth Brooks, Phil Collins, Billy Joel, Elton John... Huh? Who? What? Uh Uh....

    I then asked if his idea of multiculturalism was the collaboration of East and West Coast Rap...



    If you don't think there is an attack on white people, on white culture, if you will, than you simply have been hanging out with too many white people.
    What in the hell? So because a black person you spoke to didn't listen to music by white artists, that means there's a War on Whitey?

    This is really just a lovely example of the death pangs of privilege. Those who have never experienced actual discrimination seem to conflate it with not getting special treatment. When you've only known the special treatment, it's hard to see how it's unwarranted.
