Gillum will also make an appearance on Fox News later on Wednesday.

    I'd like to see that Gillum interview on Fox. If he's smart, he'll play like it was nothing like this:

    The same thing will happen in Georgia with a Black Woman running for Governor.

    Republican Race Wars are now on.

The reaction we see playing out is exactly what was intended. I don't believe for a second this was innocent.

    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    DeSantis should just ignore them.
    Yeah, anything he would say would only contribute to this tar baby.

    I lived it. I know what happened. In the post Civil War it was the Democratic party who opposed the Republican's Reconstruction plans. The Democratic Party started coming into being seen by Southerners as not just a 'political party. But as a 'defender' of their way of life, and that way of life was the preservation as much as possible of white supremacy. Up until WWII the South was solidly Democratic. A politician in the South couldn't get elected to any political office of any import without being a Democrat. But when Truman introduced a pro-civil rights platform at the '48 convention a faction walked out. This faction of Southern Democratic defectors became known as "Dixiecrats", short for "Dixie Democrats". In the 60's these Dixie Democrats were opposed to the civil rights and the voting equality movements and integration. LBJ's signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the beginning of the big break and Johnson knew it. Later that night after the signing of the bill Johnson's special assistant, Bill Moyer, found Johnson sitting in his bedroom looking very downcast. When Moyer asked what was wrong Johnson replied; "“I think we just delivered the South to the Republican party for a long time to come.”. The defections Southern Democrats rose dramatically after the signing of that legislation. While the change wasn't total or immediate it. Nixon's "Southern Strategy" of embracing Southern racism sped up the completion of that change and by the 1980's the Republican Party's hold on the South was firm. Haymarket's post was fully correct.

    Why do today’s Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarian Rightists Support these Race Wars and SS Waffen Rhetoric?

LOL.
    There was this man that called blacks as jungle monkeys, his name was President Richard Nixon. Conservative Republican, Senator Goldwater that ran in the 1964 presidential election, went to the White House and told Nixon he had to resign. I have studied Goldwater, I have understood Goldwater, I respect Goldwater. Sir, your not a conservative Goldwater Republican.

    My sig only has so much room. The “race war” is in your head and you are quite the enthusiastic soldier.
