    I totally trashed your stupid point trying to make it some kind of conservative thing, proved it without question. Now that you are backed into a corner you're going to whine about it. I'll go a step further. Obama was President for 8 years and never had the FDA even remove marijuana from being a schedule 1 drug, on the same level as cocaine so you can take your utterly debunked point and try and peddle it with someone that isn't smart enough to catch it.

    Uh....what? Where did CNN or anyone imply that her heritage makes her better than anyone else? That is a ridiculous assumption that you made up. Focusing on one's ethnic background, is not the same thing as "my race is better than yours".

    Second, if it's ok for liberals to consider race in voting (a racist practice), then it's also ok for Nazis to consider race in voting (a racist practice). Liberals are free to determine why Native Americans are superior to other races in the gubernatorial race, and others are free to determine why Native Americans, by virtue of their race, are inferior.
    Same response as above. And the fact that you're trying to compare this, to Nazis, only further serves to highlight your ridiculousness.

    There's nothing to wrong with pointing out someone's ethnic background, or even gender. I'm not saying that it should be the main factor for voting for someone, but acting like the act of simply pointing it out is "racist", is absolutely ridiculous.

    My response is related to your statement here:

    "It's not necessarily a bad thing to focus on a candidate's ethnic heritage. Now, if you're using that as the sole, or main reason to vote for someone, then that would be a problem."

    This implies that while not valid as the sole reason to vote for someone, it's not a bad thing to focus on ethnicity for a portion of the reason to vote for someone. This means that for a portion of the reason to vote, one ethnicity can be preferred over another, the "preferred" ethnicity in our mind, much like 5 years experience is "superior" to 2 years experience. Preferred, desirable, superior, favorite - it doesn't matter, the point is that one ethnicity is chosen over another.

    The nazi comment was to show that once we grant ethnicity as a valid, partial reason to vote for someone, we forget that "white" is also an ethnicity to vote "for", and people are allowed to vote "against" other races, since it's not necessarily a bad thing to focus on a candidates ethnic heritage.

    I can't believe anyone would condone candidate choice - even partial - based on race. I think this may be accepted because there is a conception that ethnic voting can only go one way, the way that CNN thinks it should go.

I'm going to state this for the last time, as I have no further desire to continue this conversation with you. It is not necessarily a bad thing to focus on a candidate's ethnic heritage, especially when breaking milestones (First black woman to be an X, etc.). I have no problem with that. But, if one is using that as their reason for voting for someone, then that's wrong IMO. A candidate's policies at the end of the day are what matter most.

    I am bored, so a good laugh will do me well.

I hope you understand that.
    Yet you are missing the fact that the OP has driving necessity to either be factual with its statement. Or to be a complete and total lie.

    If that were the case I would have stuck that same spear to jackasses putting articles up that are factually not true. It works better to face them on the actual information contained within the subject.

    Of which the OP is rather apt in pointing out. That this is basically the door they are knocking on.

    Bull****, it should have no bearing on anything. She's not there to represent her race and her sex. That's exactly what MLK didn't want. Being Native American or black is irrelevant.............except to race hustlers of course.

    You're totally wrong about MLK. He would certainly support the black perspective being represented in our country. Your interpretation of "I Have a Dream" is stupid beyond belief. He didn't mean to ignore racism. How shockingly dumb would that be?

    Presuming a person is qualified for a position, race and sex are perspectives with value. Diverse perspectives are the lifeblood of democracy.

    There is nothing wrong with giving a candidate points for an underrepresented perspective.

    My interpretation is right on, and todays black leaders that BLM types are completely wrongheaded. He wanted people to be judged by character and not skin color. Skin colored perspectives are just that, skin colored.
