    Interesting. Projecting I implied racism no longer existed, and that "many of the people" from the Jim Crow era are still alive.

    Considering I've been factually pointing out racism most certainly exists, as displayed by those racist bigots who see legitimate disagreement of the Presidents policies as being racist itself, I'm curious how you could make such a claim?

    And then there is the "many of the people" comment, which implies the majority of people who supported Jim Crow laws up until 1964 are still alive, and still hold those racial segregationist beliefs. That would be some remarkably powerful and healthy 70-100 year old people

    On the other hand, I have been commenting about the uninformed, so there may be an explanation for all that, that I should consider.

    I was using "many" in its most used form - to mean a large number of. And there are. If you consider someone born in 1950 - that would only make them 64 (ie. a young politician).

    And the only racism I've seen you acknowledge is racism against whites.

    No, "many people" would imply there are more than a few number of people. "Many of the people" implies most are still living and still harbor the same beliefs they held 1/2 century ago. That's laughable.

    The only racism I've seen is yours against whites, so why wouldn't I comment on those racist views? However, didn't you suggest I claimed no racism exists? Now you're writing I am admitting racism exists but just not including enough races?

    You're illustrating quite handily the level of information present among those I referred to in previous posts.

    What point are you trying to make? Just come out and say it instead of dancing around it.

    That racism exists, and it's mostly against white people?

    LOL

    I'm guessing for some, it must be hard to let go of racial bias and actually comprehend what has been written.

    If you think I'm dancing around something, I'm not sure further explanation will be any better at getting around the projection that is clouding your mind.

    I'm asking you to just say it. Ready, set, go:

    "Argument goes here".

    Bet you're itching to see if I'll meet your bigoted stereotype.

    Sorry Mr. Quixote, you're going to have to invent some other evil doers to exercise the racial prejudice you believe in. I'm not your guy.

    Personally, I think racism exposes the simple minds of terribly disturbed simple minded people. It doesn't matter what race they are, or from what side of the ideological spectrum.

    I also believe some of the greatest racists in the United States pray on those simple minds. That is evil in my book.

    We may agree, but it's quite clear only one of us actually lives and believes in it.
